Thanks all for your kind words :D

Dead or Alive sounds great, until you've got to haul a corpse back through a desert. Remember, NO DISINTEGRATIONS!

Bounty Hunter

With law and order at an all time low,  vigilante justice often became the route for any societal resolution to crime. It didnt take long for this to become more organised beyond the loose  coalitions of yester year and the Guild of Bounty Hunters came into being. Perhaps the only large scale organisation left untouched by the destructive spats of warlords, pirates and general intergalactic scum, they consider themselves somewhat apart from such pettiness. They do however, take cash in any form from credits to jewels.


This is a rogue stars model from Northstar miniatures, painted with contrast paints.

Oh come on, who actually drags the the whole corpse back?  A head weighs like five pounds tops, and you can fit a bunch of them in your average carryall.  :)

We live on a starship.  Wrap 'em in the same airtight emergency hull-seal sheeting we use to patch blaster holes and micrometeor penetrations before you store them.  If you're worried about the adhesives or general wear-and-tear messing up the ID process, leave the head in a vacc helmet (its own, or a spare from ship's stores) and then wrap it.  No muss, no fuss, no stink till you unwrap it, and if they happen to wind up getting decompressed you'll still be able to get retina scans off them.

This ain't rocket science.  :)

Time for some scenery!

All designed for a martian mat, they're all built out of cardboard, grout, paint, green stuff and random bits around the house.

In the depths of space, everyones run out of raid.

Sewer Dragon

The refuse pipes of a million worlds all surprisingly share a common flaw. People dump anything in them. Toxic waste, unwanted pets, even corpses from time to time. If you can fit it in a waste receptacle, then it's gone. Unfortunately this runoff frequently includes hazardous materials that (through bizarre interactions) tend to mutate the few living beasts in the pipe systems. These beasts range from mere nuisances, to murderous urban myths. The first recorded beast was a monstrous lizard, leading to the galactic press dubbing it a "Sewer Dragon". Henceforth any giant unknown mutant creature residing in a waste system was nicknamed "A sewer dragon".


This miniature is a Nolzurs, painted with contrast paints.

I honestly worry that umber hulks are undergoing some kind of species-wide degeneration as the years go by.  They used to stand up nice and straight when Ral Partha and Grenadier were making them back in the 70s and 80s, and then they lost a positively unhealthy amount of weight and underwent severe Kafkaism when WotC started up on them.  That one there seems to be even more hunchbacked than most.  Can cockroaches even suffer from scoliosis?

I think you are right about that. Even the gorgeous collector's series version of the umber hulk had the hunched pose.

Yaaargh

Pirate Trooper

Within weeks of "The Great Fall" numerous former military units had splintered off and formed their own organisations, hell bent on profit and control. Some styled themselves as benevolent dictators, others as buccaneers of the void, either way they all filled the basic tenants of the Void pirate. The ever shifting power status of the galaxy lends its peaceful inhabitants a paranoid edge, you could be paid up with one crew only for them to be annihilated within weeks. Visually each crew is as distinct as the next, one could be still using it's former military gear, carefully maintained and neatly organised. The next could be a slathering horde of drugged up maniacs, covered in rags and bloody knives.



These are Heroclix A.I.M. miniatures repainted and based

They may know fear.


Pirate Shock trooper

Far more commonly seen in those pirates that retained some military discipline,  Shock Troopers deploy in suits of powered armour. Power armour began life as a medical tool, artificial muscle fibres attached to exoskeletons allowing the disabled and elderly more freedom of movement. Unfortunately, various militaries took what began life as a tool for the sick and helpless and transformed it into a death machine. Marston Firelighter (the creator of the original "Power-Walk" design) declared it "A corruption of all my dreams, a bloody mark which will be imprinted on my soul forevermore" in his suicide note.

Whilst the designs vary across the galaxy, they generally support a single humanoid, contain built in life support systems and firearms, with the potential for heavier weapons. The most infamous element is the armours sheer durability. Thanks to the artificial muscle fibres it's now possible for a suit to carry battleship grade armour, impervious to all but the heaviest of handheld weaponry. Lucky shots still occur of course, not helped by poor maintenance and lack of spare parts thanks to the Great Fall.


The miniature began life as a Heroclix SHIELD Mandroid, with some contrast paint and rebasing he's now ready to terrorise the galaxy!

Now you see them...

Gaunch

Generally, the wholesale genocide of an intelligent, stone age species is frowned upon by the galactic community. That is of course unless certain circumstances sit at the fore. In this case, rampant, species wide scavenging. Leaving experts astounded, these chameleonic beasts wholesale prefer rotting flesh over cooked or newly killed, whats worse however is their focus on sentience. When given plates of human, alien, and animal meats the Gaunch would always beeline towards any flesh belonging to a higher functioning creature. If not for their lower stages of technological development  they'd have been classified an Alpha level threat, immediate universal termination. As is, they have less rights then most animals and planet wide culls are a regular site.


These (admittedly poorly painted) minis are from Nolzurs, they're doppelgangers. Painted with contrast paints.

I thought they were for making really serious Molotov cocktails.  :)
