SPACEFUTURE: Hydra Ace McGuire, Galacteer, and Brigade Games Medical Robot (also group shot)

Recommended Posts

Continuing our exploration of exoplanets with the Galacteer forces!

Every crew needs a competent doctor, and what better doctor than one immune to organic sickness, and also largely bulletproof? Guaranteed to be Three Laws Safe, this docbot from Brigade Games (BG-APC134 X2) can treat anything from radiation poisoning to Space Madness to xenomorph infestation to Chronal Inversion. It *is* equipped with a factory-installed Snarky Banter Personality Module.

And who better to lead this crew than the gallant captain and first-rate astrogator, Ace McGuire? Hydra has captured that balance of intrepidity and circumspection needed in a commander heading into the unknown! He'll try to talk things out if possible, but knows when to break out the zap guns.

Until next time, cadets!

And that spaceship is a wonderful example of 50's technology!

Awesome spaceship, colorful crew!  Space villains, Beware!

Thanks, all! I'm fairly pleased with them now. And yes, if you have committed SPACECRIMES, be sure your skull-shaped asteroid base is well-protected!

      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:

      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.'

      From the depths of SPACE, they came!

      A menace unlike any the Solar System had yet seen! Their weapons--inexorable! Their strange mental powers--UNCANNY! 

      Bombshell's Counterblast line has a faction called the Edofleini. Can't prove anything, but I feel strongly that the designer had read David Wiesner's "June 29, 1999" at a formative age. The Edo are giant-brained cephalopods with zap guns and psionic powers, and if that doesn't tickle your fancy, perhaps a Space Squid has used an Emotive Transductor to suck all the JOY and WONDER from your heart? (They can do that, you know!)

      I couldn't resist, anyway. Tried to give them a color scheme inspired by this coconut octopus. 


      Here's the four-eyed leader of the bunch, in its magnificent robe of office.


      The gold-armored subordinate with Neural Halberd:

       
      A vicious enforcer, tentacles flailing:

       
      A four-eyed underling:

       
      And a runtish Spawnling:

       
      And here's a group shot!

       
      Keep watching the skies! Guard your brains! ARE YOUR THOUGHTS YOUR OWN, CITIZEN?
