I'm debating between two different ideas. The first is that they're a version of the Grey Knights, and are called upon whenever a Cat-Thirster is terrorizing the other Mouslings. The pilgrim Mousling from the Thanksgiving blister wouldn't need too much added to make him an Inquisitor.

The other idea is that whenever the Mouslings need to raid a fridge or walk-in freezer for cheese, the Mouse Marines are called in to use their heavy weapons to get through the door. If I go this route I have an excuse to kitbash some old model kits into a dropship for them.

I'll likely end up doing both eventually.

As to their origin, I figure that they are the mice who got lost in the ducts during the events of the Secret of Nimh. They made their way out eventually, and instead of finding a hardware store like Nicodemus and his rats, they found a hobby store, read some 40k lore and ran with it.

Sounds like 'Edge of Tomorrow'.

In a galaxy far far away and just slightly to the right of that other galaxy far far away is the home of a diferent kind of mousling ... master manipulators and sometimes merchants thay see their galaxy as their own little lab where they can test theory , experiment on race interaction and all sorts of egg headed pursuit ... 

 

 However shadow shenanigans and merchant bribes only go so far , some times a more direct aprotch is needed , sometimes boots on the ground are called for, some times you have to call in the Marines, the mousling marines ... sometimes posing as mercenaries or marauders,  they are always prepared,  well informed, and deadly efficient ...

I've always wanted to mod a mouseling with a robe to carry a force sword: Darth Squeaker.

You, sir/madam, are a genius.

Here’s my impression of space mouslings.

 

”———“.  “———“.  “———“.

 

Because in space, no one can hear you “squeak”.

:;):

      When I got my Secret Sophie assignment and  saw that I got @Corporea to paint for, I knew almost instantly what I wanted to paint for her. She put that she likes anything adorable and cute plus I know she likes mouslings so I knew I had to paint one for her. As I was going through my stash I found that had the Santa one and knew it was perfect. I also knew I wanted to pair it with a Christmas tree but it took me a while to settle on how I wanted to do the tree. Mainly I was flipping back and forth between making or buying one. I ended up making one out of greenstuff and am really happy with how it turned out.

      I decided to paint a few mouslings as Christmas presents for people.  For the most part I think they turned out decent.  The Santa was a little rushed so he's a little less detailed than I would have liked.  And yes, I did get the basing idea for Asiago Jones from a diorama at Reaper Con.
       
      It was also my first time playing around with basing.  I'm having a hard time with putting on a second layer of basing materials, like the snow over the grass on the Santa.  Maybe I didn't wait long enough between layers but trying to spread glue on the grass ended up just pulling up a bunch of the grass.  So suggestions and thoughts are welcome.

      Some of you may have seen this one on Facebook as it was my entry in the last Reaper Bones quarterly contest. I love painting Mouslings and really wanted to enter the contest this time but at first wasn't sure how I could make my version stand out especially as you only enter one photo. Eventually, I decided not worry about it and try something I have wanted to attempt for awhile, a night time scene with OSL. I wanted a really light colored glow and really wanted to go with white but could not figure out how to do it without leaving the bee painted only white. So I ended up doing some light glazes of yellow and loved how it turned out. Its not perfect but I think it is a good start for my first attempt for this type of OSL.

      I gave Mom the Mousling King for a first figure. Mom has good painting posture and steady hands right off the bat! She also was swiftly good at gauging paint consistency and quantity on the brush. Yay for a first figure!
