I would very much like to have figures that represent the typical "space adventurer" PCs of games like Traveller
, Star Frontiers
, Star Wars
, etc. There are plenty of armored space marines, and exotic gothic space-fantasy figures, but if you just want to depict the crew of a tramp freighter, there's not a whole lot to choose from out there.
The science fiction I grew up with had a particular look: a usually tight spandex-looking jumpsuit or pants, but not the perfectly smooth ones of the earlier pulp SF era; they were textured with seams, pockets, zip fronts, or ribbed detailing. Tall boots, often a jacket or vest, and/or a belt with pouches or electronic gizmos. Long gloves or forearm guards were popular, often with a wrist computer or communicator built in.
And ideally, not just one or two such miniatures, but at least 4-6, enough for a full crew/adventuring party.
Some examples of the kind of look I'm talking about:http://img.photobuck...ntiersCover.jpghttp://img.photobuck...veRedington.jpghttp://img.photobuck...nsdawnCover.jpghttp://img.photobuck...nbaseJacket.jpghttp://img.photobuck...ctica-Sheba.jpg
I'd like to see as many Traveller based minis as possible without breaking copyright.
Same here, generic sci-fi,
Seems I'm not alone.
Also, I second the many calls for aliens.
