SPACEFUTURE: Hydra Galacteers, Part II

Recommended Posts

More planetary explorers!  Hydra's Jane Hunter x2 and Galacteer Trooper Advancing with Atomic Bazooka.

I picked up a Reaper Futuristic Weapons pack (50025) and didn't know what to do with it for the longest time. But then the Muse slapped me in the head, saying FLAMETHROWER SPACE LADY.
How wise the Muse is.
Presenting "Torch" Marigold of the Galacteers. You need a seam welded or a bug-eyed monstrosity turned to ash, she is on the job!

Also presenting Corporal Hernandez, heavy weapons specialist.
Space is big. Sometimes it contains big problems.
Sometimes those big problems require big solutions.
That's the good Corporal's time to shine. With the brightness of a thousand suns.
I love this sculpt so much.

And here is Lieutenant Yang, xenthropologist and exodiplomat extraordinaire.This is the unmodified 'Jane Hunter' model.

This spaceship is an even larger plastic egg with fins made from wooden dolphin cutouts and engines made from multiple types of fruit-paste-pouch caps. Why do I have so many of those caps? Children/nieces/nephews are the gift that keeps giving. 

Until next time, cadets!

Love these, especially Corporal Hernandez with the BFG!

Thanks all; the color coding was a blast. I think I might need to get 50150, Betty, Space Heroine and do her up in bubblegum pink. That should round out the color wheel satisfactorily. 

The Nuka-Zooka was a delight to paint!

      I've had Garzuhl, the Mantis Man Ranger, painted up since 2015 or so, and just knew she was going to be the core of an insectile faction at some point. Then Nolzur's put out some Thri-Keen, and Reaper's Umber Hulk Burrowing Behemoth came out, and things fell into place. 

      From the sweltering hive-cities of Mercury Terminus to the windswept ice-plains of Ganymede, the Kithkthix (for that is as close to their name as we can pronounce without pheromone glands) dig in and build their mounds anywhere they can get a foothold. Their societies are termite-like, with castes for every position. Intensive artificial selection is used to form new castes as necessary--a barbaric practice to humans, but the communal Kithkthix identify as a collective rather than as individuals. The only pronoun in their language more specific than smaller than We[caste] is Queen. 

      Here are a few representatives of the hunter/gatherer caste (Nolzur Thri-Keen and a grab-bag D&D Thri-Keen), on the search for organic matter that can be used to grow the spores of the fungus that is their sole sustenance. 

       

      and a more mature member of the caste (03850, Garzuhl) with her domesticated seeker trilobites. 


      A member of the Warrior Caste, ready to rip and rend any threats to the colony: 

       
      And a member of the Excavator caste, earthmovers par excellence. This specimen appears to have sustained an injury--but what could cut through that zinc/iridium-reinforced carapace?



      Group shot: 


      BONUS: The Manna-mold contains all the amino acids, lipids, and vitamins needed for human survival, plus digestible carbohydrates. Nevertheless, it is not recommended for human consumption, especially not the ROYAL SOMA strain, as there can be adverse metabolic consequences:

      Diversity is important, and my Imperial forces and Venerians have been lacking. Well, I mean there's some ethnic diversity, but all the Venerians are ladies and all the Imperials are men. So here's a male Venerian (Hydra Valkeeri Mind Slave B if I recall). He looks like he should be played with minimal charisma by an actor named Brick Manjaw. Or Chet Chesthair, something of that nature.

      Him with the gals: 


      And likewise from the Valkeeri line, here's Empress Xenovia. But a) she's an Empress, and b) the outfit seems a bit more like the Imperials of Lord Zarek than the retrofuture vavoom Valkeeri. 



      And the whole crew:

      So obviously I am kidding, I PAINT my miniatures (well collecting/stocking up), and then display (or sell?) them, same with my plastic models and other toys:) I also collect video games and other things. Now I used to collect baseball cards and comics, and I can understand grading of these items and in some instances having them (essentially) hermetically sealed BUT, VIDEO GAMES?????? REALLY???? I buy my games to PLAY! NOT seal them up for all time and stick them on a shelf! Does anyone else think this is weird???

      Just a simple pair of horrible spacebeasts frolicking in their native hellworld! 

      I'll have to gloss up the molten bits of the base at some point. Any tips on lava bases I should be aware of?


      In retrospect, I think the glowing mouths were inspired by the "gorilla-wolf motherbroccolers" from Attack the Block.
       
      I do not know if the designers intended this, but the pair of them are in a perfect pose for Magma Wrasslin.'
