SPACEFUTURE! Bombshell Neiran as Zeta Reticulan General

Recommended Posts

She looks great!

And it seems she's telling everybody how to do their jobs...or else...

Love the color scheme you have going with these guys.  The general looks great.  Space ships were a good find. 

 

FYI, Patrick Kieth sculpts for Reaper and has his own company (Bombshell) so naturally there are some similarities in style.

Thanks! There are some more rockets on the back burner.
That makes sense. Patrick Keith does amazing work, and the more of these space aliens he makes the happier I will be.

Thank you! That is exactly what she does. (I think that finger might have been intended for a martial arts stance, but it works so well for "Listen here, space-pal" purposes.)

Really like the reddish tones you used on the blue flesh. Adds a lot of life. Also like the sheen of the pink cloth. Space silk. 

I appreciate it! Just a very very thin layer of watered-down craft store pearlescent paint over various pinks and purples. Space silk was exactly what I was going for. 
The skin is GW Slaanesh 'grey' (desaturated lilac, really) with a little deeper purple in places, layered with a mix of Reaper turquoises and Slaanesh grey. I wish all my skin tones worked as well.

I love the colors - especially the retro mint green and the grey skintone - and the glorious head dress

Thank you! That green is AP Kraken Skin, but I think we all mentally process it as "Futurama green."

      A request for more modern female minis, Dr Helen Salinger first,  because I found her first.
      I will be painting her as Cosima from Orphan Black.
      Mostly base coats today, though I did a bit more on the coat. Legs are rubbing off so I may need to re prime. Skin was a weird mix of new copper, sun yellow and heavy _(I forget the Vallejo name) skin.

      Just what it says on the tin. A princess from Cold War Miniatures...a SPACE princess! She looks like she'd fit in with my legions of Zarek, blue-skinned retro conquerors featured elsewhere in the Spacefuture tag. (Mostly Hydra Imperials, but some Reaper Numenera priests as well.)
       
      Here she is on a walk in the Imperial Gardens with her mother (played by Hydra's Empress Xenovia). Not sure the Empress approves of her daughter's choice of stepping-out wear--unlike the populace at large. Alas that looking at a member of the Imperial Houses without permission is punishable by a minimum sentence of execution, going up to some truly unpleasant punishments. It is estimated that Princess Khoshta is the third leading cause of death in the Citadel of Marduk.

      You may have seen the Zeta Reticulans before. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83670-spacefuture-zeta-reticulans-and-flying-saucers/
       
      If, in a reversal of roles, you were to be taken to THEIR leaders, this is what you would see. 


      Patrick Keith really outdid himself with these sculpts. The mixture of decadence, arrogance, and calculating cruelty comes across perfectly, and that's without  noses or eyebrows. The gestalt of scheming luxuriousness is remarkable.What plots and counterplots (and contingency counter-counter-plots) are they devising against Earth--and each other?! 


       
      Sometimes it's tough being the messenger: 
       

       
      Thin layers of metallic/pearlescent paint over underlying colors are a theme with this faction.

      Eureka has a line of "Boiler Suit Apes." In this line, there is a collection of cosmonaut APES IN SPACE. What, am I made of stone?! Of course I had to get them. 

      Uplifted apes are often used in the spacefuture as cheap, durable labor during the terraforming process--under the watchful eye of the Earth government, of course. Many work with bioengineered soil-tilling arthropods. Here are some scenes of a few of them overseeing the cultivation of a Neptunian moon. The gourdfruit trees are already coming along nicely. 

      There are some rumors that the Space Apes have an underground separatist movement, resentful of their proper status as second-class citizens, and that they might try claiming some of their exoplanetary habitats as their own birthright, bought with the sweat of their low, beetling brows and the strength of their hairy, hairy arms. But who would believe such wild tales of our loyal, friendly helpers? 

      Anyway, here's Taskforce Leader Aperella. A Charisma implant helps her keep her workers in line.



      And the Stakhanovite albino neogorilla Bonzo. He has the strength of ten men and the work ethic of at least five! Look at those bared teeth. That's the smile of job satisfaction. 



      And here's Charlie. Always a curious fellow, that one. Chief Arthropod Wrangler. It's uncanny the way he can almost communicate with those buggers. 



      Meet Diana! Diana oversees the environmental controls. It's a little warmer than the humans like in here, Diana, and the humidity is off by about 10 percent! She's doing her best, though, bless her. Keep up the good work, Diana! 




      And last but certainly not least, Eddie. We've tried to get him to stop shambling, but old habits, you know! Eddie is a good worker, but did you know he actually failed his intelligence test? The psychologist administering it said the only way to score that low was to deliberately *try* to flunk! Poor, simple Eddie. 

        

      And here's the whole gang! 
      Wait--why do they have the emergency gauss rifles? And what's Cosmo doing here? W...What are you doing, fellows? ...Pals?


       
      Edit: New arrival, Gordy!
