That's right...Firefly Yahtzee. Now I couldn't care less about the dice in the game. What I wanted was the cool 'collectible' dice holder and rolling cup that just so happened to be a nice plastic version of the freighter Serenity from the old Joss Whedon series "Firefly". My first thought was, meh, nice, but too expensive. Then I noticed it was 'on sale' for 40% off.
went home, took it out of the box and dragged out some of the 15mm stuff to see how well it scales with the model. I think it'll work fine.

|Same as above, but with the Ground Zero Games high tech grav tank added to the mix.|
|A Vargr (right) argues with two civilians while a port security officer tries to sort things out without resorting to violence. Air car is from the Laserburn range offered by Alternative Armies.|
|Traffic at the local startport changes a lot. Here's a "Doe" gunship from Khurusan Miniatures. It's just had a base coat of desert tan applied.|
|And with a 15mm Battlefront Jagdpanther, again for scale.|
|Assorted ground vehicles including a 'not-air raft' from Laserbun and a light recon grav AFV from Ground Zero Games.|
So the Firefly model should work well as a gaming piece. It's clearly on the 'terrain' end of the scale, so if it's a little small that's okay. It'll serve as a nice objective or spice up the downport setting for the table top game.
