Hi All! Just wanted to pop in and let you know I'm still sculpting on the last batch of things.

 

I'm down to Anugrah, Ellie, and Shae.

 

Will be posting an update NEXT WEEK!

 

Have a great weekend!

Many Yays!

And thank you Patrick for your and/or Vicky's help with sorting out my pledge and access to the kickstarter minis on the store.

I have bored through the weekend to wrap up the remaining three sculpts for the Babes 3 project. Here they are.

Estimated fulfillment on the project was posted as June. But I wanted to do my best and have all of the sculpts wrapped up before AdeptiCon.

Ellie is one of the sculpts I didn't add to my pledge that will have to be a future purchase... Likely when a certain Big Stompy Robot finally makes his retail appearance.

 

And my thanks to Vicky and Patrick for all their hard work in getting this all done as quickly as possible.

      The Frost Salamander from Nolzur's has a wonderful chunky head and heavy-jawed face, and that won me over. It also has six legs, so not your average Earthly amphibian. Good thing there's always room for planetary monsters! And it's a great canvas for patterns; salamanders are often brightly spotted or striped. Let's make him a denizen of the steaming swamps of Retro-Venus!
       

       

       

       
       
      More angles:
       
      Bombshell makes some amazing sci-fi ladies and this is one such! I took some liberties with my interpretation as a Venerian Amazon--the sculpt indicates that Wanda here is wearing leggings or tight pants rather than the singlet I painted, but her headgear, belt, and boots fit very nicely with Hydra's Valkeeri sculpts. 
       

       


      More angles: 
       
      Let's put the two together!

       
      Why does a huge predator need vivid warning coloration? Well, on Retro-Venus, there's always another, bigger predator.
       

       
      I *do* love putting bright colors on weird beasties. Hope you enjoy!

      Once more we return to the hallowed halls of Miskatonic University, this time to the research laboratories, where keen and possibly unhinged minds push the boundaries of interdisciplinary knowledge! 

      Helen Salinger here (dark hair, clipboard) is one of the keenest. Whether it's fauna mutated by exposure to colors out of space, or crystals growing at hypergeometrical angles, she's on the job.

       
      (Colleagues have been seen before under the Miskatonic tag, but I gave them a touch-up recently so these are Better Pictures.)

       
      Jessica in the long coat is from Brigade Games, while the tousled fellow with the tentacled horror is from Crooked Dice. The commanding lady in the pink skirt is from Black Cat.
       

       

       
      Bonus! Updated pics of Laura Pringle, 50052; 

       
      and chemists Friedman (50046) and Froschmeister (50061), with updated chemiluminescent glows. (Glowing means science, and the glowyier something is, the more science it is, as we all know).

       
      Here's our brave Science Department, ever progressing towards truth (madness). Sometimes to make an omelette you have to TRANSGRESS a few BOUNDARIES! You'll show them, you'll show the ALL!

      Also here: a Zombiesmith scientist, Reaper's Mad Scientist 59014, and Psychologist 80066.

      The Andromedan Dominion controls many cubic parsecs of the local Outer Spiral Arm, decadent hegemons given to backstabbing intrigues, convoluted politics and railgun diplomacy. Controlling the fractious populations of several suns means there's always a need for footsoldiers! 

      40927 here is a junior cadet, ready for her first off-world assignment. Yes, she's effectively a child soldier; that's the sort of thing you get from decadent hegemonies! It's a good way of cleaning up lines of succession, if nothing else. Notice the ceremonial hairpiece and digitigrade stance of the ruling caste. 

       
      The plasma jezzail is as much a cultural signifier as a weapon (and it is for sure an effective weapon). 

       
      It's time to hunt some political dissidents! Success will be rewarded with plumes of glory and silken garments of rank. Failure will be discreetly covered up by the clan matriarch.

       
      More pics: B
       
      This (Bombshell's Jamad) is the sort of rank our Huntress could aspire to: 

       
      a statuesque Battle-Chief (or Cultural Magistrate, depending on how you translate the subtilities of the language). Robed with ceremonial silks and armed with jezzail, pistol, and glaive, she has broad authority over a planetary sector and considerable influence within her clan. 

       

       
      The menfolk also have some value in Andromedan culture; an armored Dragoon (Bombshell Exile) wields heavy weaponry developed by a vassal species. Illyrian work, by the looks of it. 

       
      The heavy armor indicates he has seen several successful skirmishes, and is a valuable fighter to protect. worth the investment. 
      He 
       
      He is also authorized to grow whiskers--a sign of clan rank!

      If they all play their cards right, they might even get an audience with Her Sovereignty Messalina XVI Herself!

      I've been having fun lately painting base discs up as planets and moons. Hard to have too many of those for space pulp backdrops.

      Also! here's Princess Auriate, from Bombshell's Babes line. The elaborate headdress and boots, plus the saber, make her a perfect fit with her imperial sisters Azeemah and Khoshta. 


       
      Turnaround, but not in great focus, sorry. 
       
      Here are the sisters together:

       

       
      An Imperial Princess lives a life of extreme luxury, but not one of ease. She must be prepared to prove her superiority over any subordinate humanoid (trivial) or savage beast (depends on the beast).
      This is a challenge: a poisonous Desert Worm. It's also venomous!
       
      Noblesse oblige!

      Irresistible fellows, these. Shaggy, bulky bodies like a ROBOT MONSTER or a moa; long, bendy necks; beaks somewhere in the hornbill-flamingo-shoebill-Skeksis-vulture range. From CP miniatures. They came in 3 packs: Soldiers (4 riflebirds plus a squad leader), Diplomats (3), and Auxiliaries (3 riflebirds with hats). The skin color scheme was based on blue, red, and yellow boobies; the beaks were inspired by a number of large birds. I added some headgear for fun and in homage to the dandelion-headed Looney Tunes "Instant Martians."
       
      I get the idea they are of a highly organized bureaucratic culture with expansionist tendencies, unlike the tribal Venerian Amazons (Hydra Valkeeri).

       
      The Hydra Imperials, below, are also from an expansionist imperial culture, but the Terror Birds are less centralized and more impersonal in their cruelty.

       

       
      They get  around. Seen here with Hydra's Slishans, who have little culture and almost no technology but DO know from mineral resources.

       

       
       
      And seen here engaged in diplomatic negotiations with the highly-cultured Andromedans/Neirans. Both species have a great appreciation for the arts and for manipulation. You wouldn't call either culture "decadent," because of the railguns, but 'Baroque' might be appropriate. 

       
      Notice that the Bombshell Neirans are towering statuesque specimens. Vavoom to a point that makes the Venerians look puny.

       
      Trade talks with a chieftain of the Mole People from Sirius B.

       

       
      and theological disputation with an Exalted Proselyte of the Yoggs.

       
      The Brain Squids are an esoteric lot and require a delicate touch.]

       
      A disputed claim of precious nuclear resources on the border of the Robot Hegemony. The Robots are prohibited by First Law to harm humans, but your beaky bois here do NOT qualify.

       

       
      A Martian delegation, bearing the wisdom of aeons of progress and aeons of rust. A culture this antique requires more than one specialist.
       

       

       
      The Krodox are one of the few spacefaring species to outmass a Terror Bird, They are willing to trade ceramic goods for new and exotic meats, and respect bigness in a fellow-sentient. 

       

       
      Humans are not known for their bigness, but are slippery customers. Tricksters and clever dodgers. 

       
       
      Lastly, a diplomatic summit with representatives from most sentient, spacefaring species.

       
      As always, C&C welcome! What do you think their alien avian civilization is like?
