Thank you, Billchuck!

That was a great read. Those converted seemed to be down with some kind of virus, since they weren't very dangerous to your crew. But is it wise to stash converted cybernetics 'in case anyone gets hurt'?

Seems like a pretty good way to turn one's crew members bad...

The cybernetics were acquired on an earlier mission, so they should be safe.  It’s the strange artifact the crew found on one of the bodies that has me worried.

Something old today, some GZG ESU naval infantry. I’ve had these floating around for something like 10 years. I’ve painted and stripped them a couple times, never quite happy with them. So, I’ve painted them again.



Some day I’ll learn to write up cool backstories like Ockman does. But today, these are just the personal security team for a wealthy businessman.  You can’t be too careful out on the fringe of known space.

I admire the fact that you decide to strip and repaint ( unless I got painted stuff from Ebay ), something I almost never do, once they're done that's it for me...

They came out nice. I like the light blue and white combo.

As to the writing ...  google Scifi rpg seeds and you'll find loads of ideas......
You can also look Nordic Weasel's great stuff or others on Drivethru Rpg or try to find old Traveller books,
80's / 90's stuff is still as good as the day it was penned.

Keep it up

Those look amazing, I love that space opera look!

That is a spiffy colour scheme.

Thank you for that comment, Billchuck! Just start writing, use a game system with background tables to get some ideas, and think about what you want to tell the reader.

I'm sure it will be interesting!

Thanks everyone. These guys were fun to paint despite their age.

In all my Navy service I was never allowed a cape! White uniforms, sure, but a cape would have really brought it all together.

Great figures, and wonderful updates all the way around. I somehow missed the notification on the batrep from the 25th.
