Wow, It's been a good old while since I last finished any sci-fi figures, real life most definitely got in the way.  However, I'm back in the game now, so here are some critters I've just finished.  They're from Krakon Games, each species a single sculpt that I managed to bend a bit with hot water to add some variety.  The Vent Dragons came with little wings, but I decided the return for the faff of attaching and painting them wasn't worth it, and they looked great without them - in fact, they way I envisage these little beasties as predators that inhabit dark vents and crawl spaces, the wings would actually be a hindrance.  I've also decided that my Vent Dragons are fully grown and 'see' by some sort of innate psychic awareness.

While I was taking the photos with my new backdrop (not quite finished - I need to add some posters) I had a play with some of my lockdown figures, here are the Vigilance Committee defending their corner of the hab block from a chaos cult.

I have to agree, it all looks great!

Good idea with the wing removal, I think I shall steal that as I have not touched my Vent Dragons yet.

The vent dragons look good, I like the wingless look. Mine are in the queue still- probably will show up next year.

I really like the backdrop too, nice and big so you can zoom out.
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

Thanks.  It's based on a 12" square terrain tile, I wanted it large enough to allow photos from multiple angles for a bit of variety in the backdrop.  Once I've added the posters I'll do a post showing the whole thing, and maybe a couple of WiP shots.

That's probably the last figures I'll get finished this year, finishing with something seasonally appropriate in the form of Anvil's Bad Santa and elves.  Next up, a bunch more Blackstone Fortress stuff.
