Rebel Minis Titan Scouts



I got these from Rebel Minis recently, and while I really liked the sculpts in general (especially the dual pistols!) I wasn't so keen on them all sporting the "bald with goggles" look.
The one on the far right get of putty hairpiece, and the guy on the far left got a GZG head swap.
I painted them up as mercs or bounty hunters, so tried to make them look as different as possible without resorting to bright colors.

I'm very pleased with these figures and I think they will get a lot of use on the tabletop.

Thanks for looking!

  1. I've thought the same thing about these minis but never thought about head swaps. Silly me. They look great

    1. Thanks EP, The GZG heads are really easy to work with and sculpting hair in 15mm is actually pretty easy.

  2. To me, nothing says pirate quite so well as a brace of pistols!
    These work work really well!

    1. Thank you Dom, I think the duplicate poses will get alien heads!

  3. I love Gun-Ho style and your painting is extraordinaire as usual.

  4. Headswap, conversion (though BALD is beautiful), and Jacker's subtle paint scheme make for an impressive band of mercs!

    1. Thanks Jay! And as a bald man, I must agree with you :)

  5. Nicely done these look great and I think could be used as spec ops in modern themed gaming as well.

    1. Thanks Brummie, yes they would easily work in that capacity. Pretty flexible minis all round.

  6. Have to admit the bald look on these has been a bit of a pause-inducer for me too. Easy enough to modify though.

    1. I will endure some converting to get more dual pistol figures on the go!

  7. I have some of these as well. I bought them originally for infiltrators, or for an ItEN crew (in the far future, hair is optional) so they work, as-is, for what I wanted them for.

    Headswaps, putty hoodies or hair pieces, or painted buzz cuts should allow you to have six individuals with ne'er a baldy pate between them, if that is your wish.

  8. Ah yes, head swap (or is that swop?), anyway, always a good way to go for making a small change into a big difference IMHO. A little drop of green stuff sir? That'll do nicely, particularly on top. Well done me old mate!

    1. Cheers Gunrunner! Once the outty bug bites, it's hard to leave figures alone...

  10. Nice approach! They look great. I'll admit that my set are so-slowly progressing towards being "Mole Men" - I'll give them orange overalls and pallid skin, perhaps emerging from holes in the ground... Amazing how the same sculpts can send painters in different directions.

    1. The emerging must happen... That would look awesome.

    2. Almost done those mole men now :) Only one actually emerging from a hole, but they look pretty good. Sometimes my random weird ideas actually get _done_...

  11. I agree on the heads. I like them but I don't need clones of Vin Diesel. One Vin is enough for me.

    1. Thanks Chris! I never made the Riddick connection... May have to paint up one of the spares holding a tea cup. ;)
