SPACEFUTURE: Space Beasts made from cheap toys!


Recommended Posts

The retro-Venus of my spacefuture setting is full of beasts, plants, and fungi in a bewildering tropical trophic tangle of symbioses and Red Queen arms races. I've posted a few of these plants and beasts before, but all of those were pre-made models recontextualized. Here are some SPACE BEASTS cobbled together of rubber toys and Green Stuff, ready to wreck a brick-jawed galacteer's day!

Less well-known than its smaller, leucistic relative made popular by documentaries, the Resplendent Mugato (Gumatus mugatus gogmagog) is king of the Venerian Highlands.DSCN6064.thumb.JPG.9b526dc79509a54fb23ad47b949d7f4f.JPG

Only the most skilled of BeastMasters can even hope to master this Beast.

And in the lowlands, the titanic Venerian Blunderbore (Brontopodus ptericeps) tramples over all obstacles, using its bulldozer crest to raze the undergrowth, bringing tender leaves down to grazing height.

A voracious Flaming Scamander (Scamander maculatus) might be capable of taking one in combat, but it would be quite the battle!

A rare sight, the two great beasts together.
