Patrick Keith's monocular Illyrians are delightful, and I've painted up a few of the stubby little fellas for my SPACEFUTURE setting. Then I came across Eureka's Creeps and knew they belonged to the same universe. I feel like the Creeps occupy about the same position in Illyrian evolution as particularly vile baboons do in ours.
A clutch of eggs? Not quite.
Horrible little spawn, all eye and mouth, work their way out of their buried larval stage.
The adults in the troop bark and yelp with excitement at this successful metamorphosis!
Some Little Creeps with Illyrians (incl. 50129, Scout) for comparison:
Oh great, the commotion has roused some of the underground beasts on this cycloptic world!
Gonna have to suit up to deal with this.
And here we see contact with Away Team Red of the Galacteers (feat. 50150, Betty)
These Little Creeps are just horrible disgusting brutes and I love them. All the danger and ravening hunger of a starved piranha, and all the boundless enthusiasm of an untrained puppy. They also come in Medium and Large, but I like the halfling size of these guys. Great canvases for eyeball practice, too! I may have to get a few more.
Been working on these guys as a test for the squad color scheme. Trying some layering on the white, it's working out well so far.
They're 1:48 scale, same as Star Wars Legion, and I've rebased them onto the same 27mm bases that Legion uses. Mostly because the standard D1947 bases are like 35mm. Way huge.
Here's a few of the 3d printed characters from the crowdfunded project by Kazrak Studio. They were done in resin, and have some very fine details.
John H. Damon, who likes to read old books written in strange languages:
Dr Weird Psychic, a student of the mystic arts who needs no introduction:
Laura Craft, field archaeologist and explorer:
And dear Dr Home, the brilliant surgeon with a lousy bedside manner:
All are presented on bases from Secret Weapon.
Karla, Anime Heroine, is a beautiful sculpt with a great nurse hat. The miniskirt, while delightful, could be more pulp-era appropriate, so I sculpted a hemline extension. I also replaced a handgun with a syringe, and then gave her a couple of backup syringes and converted her other firearm to a needle gun. She is here to cure what ails you!
And with her colleagues, Anne Foster (50258) and Dr. Welby (50257):
Stay healthy, folks, and get your shots!
