Rimlickers! - Now with baddies!
« on: April 15, 2018, 08:53:44 PM »
Rimlicker - noun (derogatory)
A spacer who plies his trade on the fringes of known space, not always strictly legally, and usually piloting an elderly and unreliable light freighter.


Rogues and ne'er do wells, basically. Some, like Solo or Reynolds, have become bywords for maverick charm and their rustbucket ships are almost as famous as they are.
Some, like this band, will never amount to anything more than being the butt of a bad joke...

The crew of the Harlem class planet-hopper Yo Mamma, a group of ex military types who decided to head out on their own after being on the losing side of one war too many.

From left to right:
"Tiny" Huang, ships enforcer
Captain Harry Balzac and his null-cat, Taint
Ships engineer Kremlyn
Charlton Manspread, ex-sniper, still holding onto his prized KenTech-E rifle.

Some more to come when finished...

Thanks for the comments chaps, glad to see I am not the only one with a childish sense of humour!

To answer some questions, yes, I think Crichton counts as a rimlicker, and never mind a ruleset, it needs a theme tune!  lol

A few more since the varnish dried properly...

These are an excellent crew, although I suspect they may be guilty of nefarious activities and frequenting back-street liquor dens.

Do you plan to make the Yo Mamma?

I doubt it, I think I would have trouble storing something as fat as Yo Mamma.



I'm so sorry, I couldn't let that one go... lol

But no, I'm struggling for storage space so a whole ship is probably beyond me. Although I do have the lovely Daemonscape resin dropship that might make a nice fast smuggler.

Thanks again for the positive comments, I may have another addition tomorrow.  :)
