After watching Shut Up & Sit Downs review of Imperial 2030 and doing some research I found a re-theme/extension someone had done called Imperial Orion which I'm probably going to build.

When it comes to army pieces I have a copy of Risk: Star Wars – The Clone Wars Edition which will give me pieces for the blue, gray, yellow and red factions but I still need pieces for purple and green.



Does any one have any ideas where I could get something appropriate?

There must be thousands of people with spent Risk Legacy sets who will have plastic armies they don't need anymore...

I always check ebay for parted out sets whenever I need tons of plastic folks for 15 cents or less per part. 3d printing was always 75 cents or bigher (and only if the artist designed a sprue correctly) and IIRC TGC was in the same price range.

I use Risk Clone Wars and Buck Rogers bits for my sci-fi dudes on a map as I can find both in decent supply and cost.

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

Find another copy of Risk: Star Wars – The Clone Wars Edition, repaint two of the armies and have a spare for whatever?

I have to imagine you could get what you need after browsing a place like "Oriental Trading Company" for a few minutes.

Google that plus "army men" and see what comes up.

Spray paint as needed if you are stuck with green.
