SPACEFUTURE: Hydra Galacteers, part 1


Recommended Posts

Hydra's Retro Raygun line is delightful. I've finally managed to get a couple of shots where the light is adequate to do them and their jetpacks and spacesuits justice. 

Meet Dr. Zahn, Chief Science Officer. He's not the fittest or youngest of the Galacteers, but a genius intellect and a life of broad-based learning can more than justify a broad-based spacesuit.

And here is the Chief of Security, Sergeant Macklin. He looks like his springs are wound a bit too tight. SPACE MADNESS is always a risk on these excursions, especially with a dangerous job like his. The Redshirt Blues are a known issue.

Next, here's Comet! An uplifted chimpanzee, Comet knows more spaceship engineering than most humans. After all, Comet was designed for the job, and wefumblefeet have to make do with studying. (I think my favorite detail is the foot-gloves. Genius and adorable.)

Comet would never mutiny and side with other Space Apes in a waste-flinging rebellion, overthrowing his human pals for primate self-governance, so let's forget the subject even came up. Just put that thought out of your head, mister! Nope, not something to worry about at all. 

The landing craft is a wooden egg with some bird cutouts mutilated into fins, an applesauce-pack-cap jet, and some goggle-vent retrothrusters. 

Until next time, cadets!

Great figures. Really like the future-retro feel of the bright colors you chose.

Matt Beauchamp and his people do good work. And the other Galacteers are just as boldly colored; we're not even halfway through the spectrum yet!

...I love your spaceship - it reminds me of all those old B&W sci-fi movies I watched as a kid!

Then I have succeeded in my mission! Not too hard to build, either.

I love these minis and your treatment of them.

As it happens, I have a game they'd work in...

      I sculpted this 5 headed nightmare 🙂 Made a post about it here https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/95758-goosedra/
      And as promised, I painted it!

      I saw a picture online of an angry 5 headed white goose suggested as a custom monster for D&D. And I just couldn't resist 😄 Behold, the dreaded GOOSEDRA!
      I will make a separate thread in Painting Show Off once I paint it 🙂
       

       

       

       

       
      Close up of the heads
       
      This wants to be a Chinese Goose head.
       

       
      And of course I had to have the memed Untitled Goose with a knife head
       

       
      And a Canada Goose Head as the leader
       

       
      The other 2 heads I'll paint as Greylag geese
       

       
      This is how I made it.

      A warrior woman of the wastelands, the mohawked Dez is a formidable figure. Where does she even get hair color and makeup in the Irradiated Zones? She's not telling, other than to say "If it was easy, I'd send a man to do it." Also, she's a deadly shot with a wrist crossbow. 

       
      More pix:
       
       
      Here she is with a few of her pals (Wasteland Maelee, also Bombshell, and a Crooked Dice survivor).

      More than a match for the average mutant horror.
       

       
      and a credible threat even to above-average horrors!

      In the country of the blind, the saying goes, the one-eyed man is king. Certainly when venturing into the obscure unknown of space, the monocular Illyrians are as good as any human, despite a completely different evolution. Their quick regeneration and centrally-located brain-analogue allow them to survive injuries a human could not, while their alien metabolism means resource competition between human and Illyrian is minimal. 

      Here is one brave planetary explorer on a rugged rocky ringed planet. It appears extensively cratered, but the presence of atmosphere and weather should have worn the features down...



      Well, that answers that! 

       
      Distant evolutionary cousins, perhaps? Or just convergence? 

       
      These native life forms are unused to creatures with eyestalks like theirs that can move about freely on the surface! 


      The eye-worms are unused eyestalks from a Wizkids Beholder--they come with a set each of Eyebeam Eyes and Regular Eyes. Waste not!
      They were inspired by this pulpy artwork--not mine, all credit to the original artist.

      Xenoplanetary mining is a tricky business. Mining in general is dangerous, and unknown worlds are exactly that. So the dark spaces of an unexplored globe could contain anything in their dripping, lightless, clammy halls. Green Team is about to discover this.

      Meet Green Team. On what was another boring expedition, in both senses of the word, under the crust of Xipetotec Alpha.


      And then--a muted slicky, sticky noise, like a the sound of a wet carpet and a spoon stirring jam. There's life down here!


      Inquisitive life, with no fear of humanoids!


      Inquisitive, fearless, and *very large* life. Very...mucoid, too. Look out, there, cadet!
       
      More soft, clammy, rippling noises. We are Not Alone.


      And Excavation Specialist Torelli in particular is not alone. By the time he hears the hiss of digestive juices on his suit and feels the soft inexorable flesh enfolding him, it is already too late.


      Sometimes the Company just isn't paying a spacer enough to stick around! 


      After several hours of muted squelching and gurgling, once every scrap of organic matter and soluble minerals have been absorbed, the worms finally move away from the small heap of metal fragments and tooth enamel that was once Torelli.  And in the dark silence that follows the worms are again left, as they have been for ages, alone. Waiting. And hungry.

       
      I love these disgusting sculpts. Great for Underdark and spacefuture alike, they are horribly organic, all sphincters and flaps and folds. They will engulf an adventurer. It is a soft death, but not painless. Something about that eye makes them look less brainless than one might think.
