A Stargrave Crew (Expanded from the Five Parsecs From Home Crew) - The Squat

If you've been keeping an eye on the blog over the last month or so, you'll know that I've put together a 6-strong Five Parsecs From Home crew. I've also been using them to spark other sub-projects, with a 10-strong Stargrave crew foremost in my mind. The final addition to this project is my last Stargrave crew member in the form of a classic Bob Olley squat.

Urban / Industrial Scatter


I'm always on the lookout for new scatter elements to add to my terrain collection. I recently painted up a dozen items or so in preparation for the Five Parsecs From Home weekend. No hero pieces here, but it's all useful nice stuff!

Flight of the 'Tomorrow's World', the Pilot Series - a Five Parsecs From Home Adventure

You may not have heard of it, but the Flight of the 'Tomorrow's World', is considered a modern sci-fi classic. Running for just a single pilot series of seven episodes between 1995-1996, 'Tomorrow's World' was a visually exciting and entertaining show. Sadly the show ran into difficulties when trying to commission a second series - networks felt that some elements were too adult for broad appeal, and the high cost of special effects made it a costly proposition. It was cancelled after just the pilot series.

Synopsis: A crew of misfits, aliens and robots led by dashing human rogue Rico 'AAA' DuBois and mystic empath Yan Tibbault journey through fringe space in search of wealth, fame and answers to mysteries they encounter.

The crew of the Tomorrow's World

Set in the fringe space system of Golgotha, the series is full of exotic alien locations. Packed with high-energy action and a lot of laughs, Flight of the 'Tomorrow's World' was short-lived, but has become a science fiction TV classic! Rumours abound that a reboot is in the making - watch this space!
