SPACEFUTURE: Zeta Reticulans and Flying Saucers

Recommended Posts

It's not quite certain when the Zeta Reticulans started interfering in Earth affairs, but interfere they did. No one paid attention to a few crazed hillbillies or irate cattle ranchers at first, but a pattern began to emerge. They are expert bioengineers and their masterful probulations appear geared towards creating 'sleeper agents.' Some wild-eyed conspiracists insist they have agents in the highest levels of the Earth Government, but this is clearly paranoid raving. 

It is possible they are remote descendants of the far-flung High Martian empire. 

(These are Black Cat Bases Aliens. I made a dumb mistake and painted some of their tunics dark purple; it didn't work, but a thin coat of metallic pale blue over it works great. The spaceship is a pepper-grinder lid and a part from a discounted dollhouse grill, plus some earpieces from earphones the cat decided to destroy and some bits and bobs.)

The Zeta Reticulans have mastered the matter transmitter and the tractor beam. (Palettes and yellow transparencies.)

Another great group!

Love that saucer and the tractor beam!

 

 Newsflash!

Drunken hillbillies mistake a weather balloon for an UFO

 

Several citizens had been frightened by tales told by a group of drunks.

Their wild tales were quickly debunked after the local Sheriff noticed a few empty bottles in the back of their truck.

A breath test later they were safely detained at the Police Station.

In their drunken stupor they had watched a weather balloon and mistook it for an UFO, they even talked about little men with big heads!

 

Let this be a warning to all about the effects of alcohol!

There are no such things as UFOs or little green men!

Trust the authorities!

Sleep well people!

The tractor beam is a great touch.

Thanks! I love reusing junk, and I think that the beam really helps sell it.

YES this is perfect for an Earth Government press release! I may have to borrow it. Kudos especially for the clever causal elision in "A breath test later they were safely detained at the Police Station." The results of the tests? Not important. What IS important is those troublemakers are spending the night in the cooler. You've got the spirit of this setting exactly right. :;):

Mercenaries Cephalyx Agitator from Warmachine seemed brainy and unheimlich enough to pair with these fellows.  So spindly, with too many limbs and eyes--all the worst parts of specter and spider.  Here it is, with a Quantum Desquamator made of glass tubes and junk.

Aimed for a color scheme that would evoke old-timey rubberized surgical gowns. What a nightmarish bogey.
