What’s nice about Stargrave (the Sci-fi sister game to Joseph A. McCullough’s & Osprey’s Frostgrave) is that it is miniature agnostic; meaning the game allows you to use any miniatures you want! Have a pile of old Citadel Rogue Trader Pirates? Perfect! Want to use your Star Wars Imperial Assault minis since you they’re already painted? Go for it!

Looking for a size & scale comparison for Stargrave minis? I finally put one together! Video version HERE!

Episode 1 of the of a closer look at the minis on this list! (Playlist of all videos)

Now for me, my enjoyment of the hobby leans towards painting up cool-looking miniatures. When I see games that lets me use my own miniatures, I love being able to go through my collection or order a bunch of minis from different companies so I can make a cool looking, rag-tag squad.

North Star Military Figures has a line of official plastic miniatures for Stargrave. But I wanted some alternatives.

Here are the official Plastic Stargrave kits:

North Star Military Figures

Troopers are a little generic, but great for kitbashing.

I scoured Google & YouTube for cool sci-fi minis for Stargrave. I’ll keep this list updated as I find more, so make sure you bookmark it!

Alternative Armies

Alternative Armies has a lot of different ranges. If you’re looking to go small, they have an entire range of 15mm. I’m sticking to 28mm for my list. They are running a 20% off promo until May 1st. I ordered from them.

Alternate Stars

A Cool mix of aliens and space pirates.

Wars in the Stars?

Ganesha Games Scifi

Really cool sculpts. We have Psi Paladins (Star Wars), Space Simian (Space Apes) & really awesome Aliens. I wish I ordered more, looking through the range again!

Ion Age

Reminiscent of old GW sculps and include some cool minis that could work for a spaceship crew, definitely dig around the range.

Gas Masks are always cool.

Space Marine and Adventurers

Spacesuits & Space Pirates. I bought a few of these.

Old School Vibes

Bombshell Miniatures

Counterblast

Pulp Sci-Fi miniatures featuring humans, aliens, anthropomorphic animals and robots, and even vehicles. Looking for robots powered by a brain? Then these minis are for you. Counterblast the game seems pretty cool, as well.

Do you see the Space SHARK?
They have a nice collection of spacesuit characters with plastic dome helmets. SO COOL!

CMON

Zombicide: Invader

Zombicide in space! Crew members, Space Marines, and of course, zombie aliens. The Kickstarter Exclusive Gang Packs look like a great deal for a crew of 5-6 (look on eBay, about $30).

Copplestone Castings

Future Wars | USA Store (Badger Games)

Scavengers and squads that are reminiscent of Retromunda.

Necromunda?

Rogue Stars Sci-Fi | USA Store (Badger Games)

The Rogue Stars line is what got me excited to build crews. These sculps look awesome!

Sci-fi Skirmish

Core Space (Battle Systems)

Core Space has minis for everything from robots, ship crew, rogues and space police. Although the majority of the minis are plastic (board game quality) with mould lines that are a PAIN to remove. Some sets are resin and are of higher quality.

I hate mould-lines.

Corvus Belli

Infinity

A huge range of miniatures. Each Faction has their own unique style; Humans, Cyborgs, Huge Mechs, Werewolves, Sci-Fi & Cyberpunk. There really is a huge selection. Infinity takes inspiration from Television, Movies & Anime.

The JSA Sectorial Army Pack include “Section 9” miniatures; Clearly inspired by Ghost in the Shell!

CP Models

Many different lines of 28mm ranging from Aliens to Star Trek look-a-likes & future soldiers. I’m partial to the Scum & Smugglers line (there is a space-hammerhead shark). They also have Grey Aliens, space dwarves (Runts), goblins (Grem), and more!

Nice looking alien.

Not quite my style, but maybe yours?

Crooked Dice Game Design Studio

Many styles of miniatures to choose from here. Post Apocalyptic gangers & Marauders (think Necromunda), crab aliens, plays on pop culture (Ghost Busters & Star Trek), Cyberpunks, aliens, and lots of Sci-Fi Pulp! Definitely check out Crooked Dice.

Security Troopers would make a nice addition to a Stargrave crew.

There are some gems to be found looking through Crooked Dice.

Lizard Nazi Soldiers. Seriously.

Diehard Miniatures

Amazing, amazing miniatures with Old Hammer/Rogue Trader vibes. I want the entire line. Everything from Aliens, Chaos crews, and even Skeletal Spacemen!

Need. All. The. Minis.

Space. Skeletons. Need I say more?

eM4 Miniatures

Spacelords

More Old Hammer inspired goodness. I only wish they had more of their minis painted or…with pictures because the Spacelords line looks to have some great gems.

Space Goats. ‘Nuff said.

TIKONaMUT Pre-Painted Miniatures

eM4 has a a line of pre-painted miniatures on their site, that I’d be interested in checking out. They look nice in the pictures — TIKONaMUt is their dark future line including Mercenaries & the Chequer Gang.

Fifth Angel Studios

MERCS

Many different factions of humans in power armor from the MERCS skirmish game and MERCS: Recon board game. Lots of options from light to heavily armored crew members. They sell faction packs where you essentially get one free. PVC plastic minis from the Recon Board Game at $5 a piece.

See you Space Cowboy.

Hasslefree Miniatures

Hasslefree has been recommended to me quite a bit. They have a lot of miniatures to choose from; resin, metal, large scale, and more.

Sci-Fi & Weird War

Really a huge range of styles. Everything from grimdark to anthropomorphic animals to fiction inspired sculpts.

All bark. All bite. Space dog.

Heresy Miniatures

“The best miniatures that you never heard of!”

Sci-Fi Miniatures

Heresy Miniatures were recommended to me quite a few times. They have a limited range, but they could definitely work if you like their style.

Their main attraction seems to be their gang collection, which I’ll consider alternative minis for Necromunda’s Delaque gang.

I really like these poses! Giving me a vampire vibe.,

They do have a small set of Inspectors and Smugglers that would probably fit Stargrave better.

No guns, but good looking crew minis.

Hydra Miniatures

Retro Raygun

50’s retro, Pulp-styled miniatures. They are 30mm scale, but many are robots or aliens, so they may mix just fine with other crew members. Robots, Aliens, Humans. Some of the most unique minis I’ve seen!

Zenithian Alien Troopers.

Khurasan Miniatures

Sci-Fi, Pulp and Fantasy ranges. Some 28mm and a lot of 15mm.

28MM Sci Fi Adventurers

Models most suitable for adventure in Space Opera settings. Right now it consists of aliens, dinosaurs with armor and guns, and power armor tigers. The site says humans coming soon.

28MM Sci Fi

Lots of vehicles, soldiers, power armor, more dinosaurs (Garn), and awesome Scavenger minis.

Many different sets from Space Dwarves to Rat-men to Rebels. Big faction boxes of plastic or smaller sets of plastic or metal.

Nice variety!

Reaper Miniatures

Reaper miniatures has everything from fantasy to sci-fi, in plastic, “bones”, and pewter. I like a lot of their miniatures, but their scale seems to be all over the place. Links are land on their “sci-fi” sections

Chronoscope

Chronoscope is 25mm Heroic scale, not 28mm or 28mm Heroic. I’ll have to get my hands on them for a comparison, but be warned before you buy!

Space soldiers, robots, mutants, cyborgs, wastelanders, and more.

Spiral Arm Studios

Maelstrom’s Edge

Box sets, single units and plastic sprue sets. I ordered these Broken Infantry sprues and I can’t wait to build them.

Can’t wait to get my hands on these spures.

Wargames Atlantic

Death Fields

A few lines of plastic sprue soldiers. I’m partial to these Einherjar “space dwarves”.

Add “Space” in front of any sci-fi or fantasy race and tell me it doesn’t make them cooler. Space Dwarves. See?

Iron-Core

A single, but cool looking set of sprue miniature “Eisenkern Stormtroopers”.

Stormtroopers. Eisenkern Stormtroopers.

ZombieSmith

If the phrase “Muppets in space” raises an eyebrow or you need to check out ZombieSmith. There are quite a bit of sci-fi lines (as well as fantasy). I ordered a bunch of the line pictured below.

A7D12

Random Aliens Passing Through. Really awesome aliens; perfect for a starship crew.

alien crew muppet mini miniatures stargrave
Random aliens passing through, indeed.


These miniatures would be great for Stargrave, Star Breach, Reality’s Edge, Five Parsecs From Home, Kill Team, or any Sci-Fi tabletop game or RPG that require minis.

I have purchased many of these minis! I have a whole series of unboxing and reviews (and even some painting) videos over on the Current Kick YouTube Channel, so make sure to subscribe!

Any other miniature lines that I should add to this Stargrave list?

Leave a comment with suggestions. I’ll keep this post updated.

Since this post has been so popular, I decided to make a Fantasy Miniatures for Frostgrave & Rangers of Shadow Deep list!
