Your impression of space mouslings ?


Recommended Posts

I have an idea or three ... but would like to hear others impression of the impressive Space Mouslings by Gene Van Horne ... who are they in your galaxy what are they like and what do they do ... we each have our own lil galaxy and no two are exactly alike ... so ... how do you see space mouslings in your galaxy ?

I'm debating between two different ideas. The first is that they're a version of the Grey Knights, and are called upon whenever a Cat-Thirster is terrorizing the other Mouslings. The pilgrim Mousling from the Thanksgiving blister wouldn't need too much added to make him an Inquisitor.

The other idea is that whenever the Mouslings need to raid a fridge or walk-in freezer for cheese, the Mouse Marines are called in to use their heavy weapons to get through the door. If I go this route I have an excuse to kitbash some old model kits into a dropship for them.

I'll likely end up doing both eventually.

As to their origin, I figure that they are the mice who got lost in the ducts during the events of the Secret of Nimh. They made their way out eventually, and instead of finding a hardware store like Nicodemus and his rats, they found a hobby store, read some 40k lore and ran with it.

In a galaxy far far away and just slightly to the right of that other galaxy far far away is the home of a diferent kind of mousling ... master manipulators and sometimes merchants thay see their galaxy as their own little lab where they can test theory , experiment on race interaction and all sorts of egg headed pursuit ... 

 

 However shadow shenanigans and merchant bribes only go so far , some times a more direct aprotch is needed , sometimes boots on the ground are called for, some times you have to call in the Marines, the mousling marines ... sometimes posing as mercenaries or marauders,  they are always prepared,  well informed, and deadly efficient ...

You, sir/madam, are a genius.

I'm Dutch,

 

Okay, I really should've seen that coming. You Dutch always know about all the weird German stuff. :poke: I mean, you even had that localization of "Het Oog des Meesters"! (And finally got a new edition after 30-odd years last year, too.)

 

I thought Perry Rhodan was basically dead to the English-speaking world since about the late 70s, though.

      More completed from the Shelf of Incompletion...

      Aftermath is a dungeon crawler board game that is the heir to both Mice and Mystics and Stuffed Fables.
      The game takes place in a post apocalyptic world where rodents have formed colonies to scrounge resources for survival, cobbling together the things they need.
      For the set, I went with a lot of textures and a lot of wear and tear. Nothing these mice have is brand new, and I really wanted to express that.

      These were the final two of the Thanksgiving Challenge I was able to complete. 

      The one on the left is a fairly accurate depiction of the Elder Mouse that wound up briefly possessing me on Halloween and his friend is the Priestess of Cheezit. (Which has gone from a favored food of mice, to a religion it seems)

      Debating on the nature of Cheezits vs Cheese Nips, consulting the Book of Ralph.

      Nips are found to be acceptable, and they go off to spread this to the other mice...

      “...and I, Colonel Duke Jones, stand on the surface of Mars for all of humankind and in the spirit of exploration that’s taking our species beyond its Earthly bounds. And I’m lighting this cigar to celebrate a successful mission.”
       
      “Haha. Good speech, Duke. You're the first human in 76 years to stand on the surface of another planet. How’s it feel to be further from Earth than any other human being?”
       
      “Pretty good, Pioneer. It’s humbling and really gives a sense of perspective. The air is thin but breathable. Those terraforming guys did a great job. Hey, the camera’s working, right? This is being broadcast back to Earth?”
       
      “Yep, it's all good. There's a delay but they're getting it. Audience figures are even bigger than Kim Kardashian’s state funeral, so well done!”
       
      “How do things look from up there in orbit?”
       
      “We’re all good, just watching you and keeping an eye on your vitals.”
       
      “OK, Pioneer. I’m gonna have another puff on this cigar and—”
       
      “Duke, sorry to break in, but Jim just had an idea. The Earth is directly behind you. Could you turn around so we can get a shot of you looking back at it?”
       
      “Sure thing, Pioneer.”
       

       
      “How’s this?”
       
      “That's just perfect, Duke. Everything’s A-OK.”
       
      “Good to know, Pioneer. We're still live, right?”
       
      “We certainly are. Jim, you owe me fifty dollars.”

      Hi folks! I hope everyone had a Happy Easter! Painted this Mousling on last night's Twitch livestream :) Worked on some freehand lace patterns and put a normal-sized penny (I swear!) next to this little guy for scale. He was so much fun to paint
