Grublicks idly scratched his butt. He was still in his room/cell, waiting for the crew of the trader vessel to decide whether to take him on as their newest crew member or not. He really didn't understand the hold up; hadn't he surrendered to them, and happily sold out the raiders that he had been with? Back home, that would've made him a junior officer at the very least. It was always hard to figure some of the other races different customs, though.

 

Thinking back, it hadn't been a very hard choice; the raiders had underestimated the strength of the vessel they attacked, and got wrecked good and proppa for it. He was pretty sure the raiders had been cheating him anyway; he always seemed to get the worst of the work details, like cleaning the kitchen. On the other hand, he'd miss some of them.  He was always able to convince Nentarc to trade work details; Grublicks was convinced that the man had been soft between the ears to so easily agree to cleaning the kitchens instead of working down in the deep sumps. If Grublicks was careful and maybe a little bit lucky, he could always find a couple of sump eels to snack on.

 

He wondered if there were any sump eels on board this ship as he scratched his butt again.

 

I've been on a little bit of a sci-fi kick recently, and decided that all of these one off figures I've acquired over the years might make a pretty interesting starship crew, so I've been trying to tie them together with little bits of story.

 

Whether they'll ever see use in a game is anyone's guess, although I certainly hope so.

 

Thanks for looking.

I really like the way you based it. What did you use for the grating?

I'm almost thinking plastic canvas, possibly 7 per inch canvas...  I'm rather curious as well! 

WhiteWulfe is  exactly correct, I bought it at Michael's for a dollar or so. It takes paint pretty well, is easy to cut to shape with scissors/trim with a hobby knife, and looks pretty good as a quick and easy sci-fi base.
