Antediluvian Miniatures is probably best known for its lost-world anachronistic reptiles, but they also have a space opera line! And in my opinion "Buckland Rogers, Bounty Hunter" is one of the best. A great crocodilian brute with gorilla arms and a face straight off of a Crystal Palace Megalosaurus reconstruction. Also a cybernetic reticule monocle and a three-barreled weapon of sinister design. Perfect for my retro spacefuture universe. Look at those savage jaws, the muscled neck-hump, the jaunty little jumpsuit! A great fit with my Galacteers (guest appearance from Betty, Space Heroine 50150) "gOOd dAycycle neighBoR maY i bOrroW a cUp of dEpROtonated anTimaTTer" Or with a rogue's gallery of other zoömorphic space aliens/a ragtag band of space pirates (featuring a Space Mouseling, 01434).
At last, a return to the retro-future that never will have been! 01434 is a three-pack of mouslings with four head options included. A plucky, adventurous crew of spacefaring rodents. It is unclear if they are an uplifted species, or naturally evolved descendants of the lab mice shot into space back in the heady fossil-fuel days before the Last World War. After all, who KNOWS what kinds of effects Deep Space has on the murine body and mind? (See PKD's "The Infinites" and James White's "The Conspirators"; no doubt there are others). But they're here, and they have blasters and space suits, and what more could you want? Are you made of stone?! Introducing the quick-witted Buck Roquefort! The intrepid Flash Gorgonzola!! The dauntless Honor Chevington!!! And the *overwhelmingly* well-armed James Camembertius Kirk!!!! 80085 is a BIG Bones mecha-mousling with missiles to spare. He is ready to rain down hellfire and bring on FROMAGEDDON. (or perhaps, LEERDAMMERUNG? Golly I love cheese puns.) Here's the three from 01434: And the whole crew (note, 01434 comes with mix-and-match heads--three bodies, two helmets and two unhelmeted heads): A bit of surgery later and I put the leftover smaller helmet on 80085, the Space Mousling Heavy. I believe @Corsair was asking on another thread about small mousling heads for a Starfinder Ysoki; this is one possibility, being noticeably smaller than its counterparts and also space-ready! I recently impulse-bought some pale neon yellow paint, and used it for the bases and minor OSL. The asteroid is a stress ball I touched up with some Reaper Alien Goo and that same phosphorescent paint. A bunch more pictures if you want them; C&C welcome either way. Onward and starward, cadets!
