A return to the psychedelic fungal jungles of Retro-venus and the harsh plains of the Imperial homeworld, with a Space Princess for each.
I really can't overstress what a lovely sculpt Azeemah, from Hydra's Imperials faction, is. Definitely looks as stern as she is beautiful, though not as cruel as her unstable sister. With her Void Metal saber and standard raygun, she is all business.
Both the Princesses:
And a cadre of the Imperial Court:
And in the Venerian jungle, the no-nonsense Princess Alluria, ready for anything the planet throws at her, animal or vegetable. Guest appearance from the Death Lilies, and some Halloween Venus Flytrap decor.
And with a couple of her retinue (TWO males, she is *very* high-status).
Space is full of perils. There are creatures out there that have evolved to be perfect predators, killing machines without remorse or hesitation, carnivores with the cunning to manipulate tool-using sentients and the ferocity to exterminate entire species. One such evolved on Earth, and is greatly in demand for controlling space-vermin infestations on board ship.
Don't leave port without a ship's cat! That's how the xenomorphs get you!
The handsome fellow in burgundy is Commander Mudpie, from Hydra. More pics below:
You thought letting the cat in and out was a hassle on Earth...
The humble dog, one of Earth's first pioneers into space, can't be beat for loyalty or tracking. The hard part is making a spacesuit that can pick up scent samples in an airless environment.
Who is a good spaceboy? It's this guy! More below:
And lastly, another for the Space Apes faction. Having four hands is a real problem-solver in zero-gee. I love the little thumbs on Hairy Herbert's boots.
Again, click for more angles.
The bubble helmets are clever, and add to the effect wonderfully. I might remove the chimpanzee's faceplate for uniformity's sake.
Special guest appearances by Space Roughnecks and Cold War's Space Ape (last seen as Gordy).
Keep watching the skies, cadets!
I got this awesome looking Hydra from the EU Box of Goodwill. @GlitterwolfGlitterwolf got it years back from another bogw.
I traced it to be part of a kickstarter, where originally it was a fountain!
Not having the water parts, and also wanting to paint out alive, it resulted in this!
I tried to create a shadow of his body still under water, although I didn't think of it till after the water texture was added. Still happy on the outcome :)
This is the classic Lesser Golems set (SKU 11-416) from Ral Partha's range AD&D Monsters. Sadly that means they are no longer in production, which is a shame, since there was a lot of great minis in that range.
Painting these 2 get my total painted this year at 33, so way ahead of my normal output.
