SPACEFUTURE: Bombshell Space Kitty, Space Pup, and Space Ape

Recommended Posts

Space is full of perils. There are creatures out there that have evolved to be perfect predators, killing machines without remorse or hesitation, carnivores with the cunning to manipulate tool-using sentients and the ferocity to exterminate entire species. One such evolved on Earth, and is greatly in demand for controlling space-vermin infestations on board ship.

Don't leave port without a ship's cat! That's how the xenomorphs get you!

The handsome fellow in burgundy is Commander Mudpie, from Hydra.  More pics below:

You thought letting the cat in and out was a hassle on Earth...

The humble dog, one of Earth's first pioneers into space, can't be beat for loyalty or tracking. The hard part is making a spacesuit that can pick up scent samples in an airless environment.  DSCN9046.thumb.JPG.2bec4288a2776302ef827a3597402856.JPG

Who is a good spaceboy? It's this guy! More below:

And lastly, another for the Space Apes faction. Having four hands is a real problem-solver in zero-gee. I love the little thumbs on Hairy Herbert's boots.

Again, click for more angles.

The bubble helmets are clever, and add to the effect wonderfully. I might remove the chimpanzee's faceplate for uniformity's sake.
Special guest appearances by Space Roughnecks and Cold War's Space Ape (last seen as Gordy).

Keep watching the skies, cadets!

Thank you! They were a delight to make. "Voidscape," perhaps?
The MAKE SELL SHIP ANYTHING CUT PRICE is a nod to one of my favorite R. A. Lafferty stories, "In Our Block."

These are great, every time I see your stuff I have a strong desire to game in your worlds. 

That's about the highest praise I can think of! Thank you.

      Thought some of you might find this of interest:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bombshellminis/isw-71b-scout-ship?ref=user_menu
       
      Available as either a physical model or STL
       
      Command power. Command efficiency. Command versatility. Command respect.
      Able to go from atmosphere to Jump in under 18 cronons. Equipped with four Ultonium-powered 418ml SXV-55 Bust-A-Drives™. Voted Starship and Pilot's Scout Ship of the Year. Available with three different equipment payloads. The fastest, safest, most versatile scout ship you will ever fly.
      The all new ISW-71B.
      Boldly go.
      ISW-71B SCOUT SHIP
      Illyrian Ship Works is renowned for excellence in both design and efficiency. The ISW-71B is no exception. It sets the new standard for classic design with modern performance.
      The Scout Ship Miniature Kit is a "game" scale multi-part model pressure cast in high quality urethane resin for easy assembly. It is sized to be compatible with most 28-35mm miniatures for tabletop battle games and RPGs.  The kit may be upgraded through unlocked stretch goals or with Add-On packs available through the Kickstarter project.
      THIS MODEL WILL BE AVAILABLE AS BOTH A RESIN KIT AND AS STL FILE DOWNLOADS.
      In the CORE SET you will get :
      1 ISW-71B Scout Ship kit Unlocked Stretch Goals The ship measures 12"/30.48cm in length overall with a 4.75"/12.06cm diameter hull and an 8"/20.30cm wingspan. It should be suitable for any scenario in the COUNTERBLAST Adventure Battle Game and will fit in on the tabletop with plenty of  scenery and vehicles for other games.
       There are two basic pledges - The Scout Ship Resin Kit which is a physical model kit that will be shipped to you once production is complete or the Scout Ship STL Digital Kit which you can download. Each kit has all the same parts and will include all of the the unlocked CORE stretch goals.
      We have also added the LANCER Backer Level. This is an a la carte level for backers who may want access to the pledge manager after the campaign ends, or may only want certain individual Add On items.
      *NOTE - THIS LEVEL DOES NOT INCLUDE THE FREE STRETCH GOAL ITEMS AVAILABLE ON THE OTHER BACKER LEVLES*
      The parts have been test-printed on EPAX X1K and EPAX E10 resin printers. All of the parts have been sized to fit on a build plate that has a 130.56mm (L) x 82.62mm (W) x 155mm (H) build volume.
      Throughout the campaign we will be sharing pics from other printers in FDM materials too.

      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.

      The Froghemoth first appeared as part of an extraterrestrial biome in "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" if memory serves, so a spacefuture setting is, if anything, returning it to its roots. Twisted, coiling, poisonous roots, in the fungal swamps of a jungle hellworld such as Retro-Venus!
      I went for an unwholesome, etiolated color scheme--which blends in pretty well with the rest of the terrain.
       
      More angles: 
       

      This is a big miniature! Here it is towering over some tentacle-faced Cult Beasts from Midlam. They are about hound-sized in scale. The deep scars and tatters on the throat pouch indicate some sort of scarring from combat with others of its species, as rutting sea lions do.


      This is a beast too much even for the Beastmasters of the Venerian Amazons to handle alone!


      While we're at it, here's another view of the Cultist Beasts

      And a Venerian menagerie: 


      I plan on getting Mudgullet and making a mate for this one at some point.
