Five Parsecs From Home Crew #2 - Robot


I was 100% certain that I wanted to include a robot in my Five Parsecs crew. The crew build system allows you to include up to 1 bot, so I rooted around in my boxes and turned up the fabulous Spacefarers S42 security robot.

Five Parsecs from Home Crew #1 - Jokaero

A few weeks ago my good friend cheetor mentioned the Modiphius Five Parsecs from Home rules as something we ought to explore for future gaming sessions. The game requires a 6-strong starship crew for narrative solo or co-op skirmish gaming. The crew is mainly humans but with the option to sprinkle in some robots and aliens. Over the next few days my response was pretty much as follows:

  1. Grab some miscellaneous miniatures and start playing around with what looked like a fun crew.
  2. Buy the Five Parsecs from Home book and do some detailed planning of a crew.
  3. Realise I could easily add another 4 models to use the Parsecs crew as a Stargrave crew.
  4. Start modelling and painting the 10-strong Parsecs+ crew.
  5. Get excited about other linked sub-groups and opportunities to paint other models in my collection.

My initial assemblage of miniatures for Five Parsecs (note, not all of these models made the cut!)

Common Priests for the Common Folk

Some members of a congregation like their priests to be sensitive and empathetic. In general though, the priests of the 41st millennium tend towards a more muscular style of religion!
