A new batch of civilians, as I'm in need of a few ;)
The first one was quite an improvised thing. I found a metal 17th Century soldier in my box and begun to glue stuff on it. The most notorious addition is the bionic arm (from a Space Crusade Android).
|Really, the mini below is a 17th Century soldier|
So this way I ended up creating the character of Armengol Perelmut, bounty hunter:
|Kinda Nick Fury in spaaace|
Former 41st Septimanian Fusilier, he still keeps some of his old military gear, he even wears the regimental shoulderpad.
Cruel and implacable, he is however a man scarcely seen in the slums, always preferring high-profile targets and jobs. He is a bon vivant, enjoying his flamboyant attires and exquisite tastes. Anyway, if a job takes him to the dirt, he won't refuse and will show why his fees are so worth of the price.
|The backpack is from the Scions kit|
The rest of the minis are from Hasslefree and have slight conversion works. The first one... well, when I got Not-Starbuck I couldn't but notice this mini was on their ranges. It's the same mini but wearing a coat. I thought it was lovely, finally a modern-like civilian bearing no weapons... damn, it was cool!
|Vickee Sachaff, pilot for hire|
The next mini involved a little more work. The original bears a gun. I thought of replacing it with a chainsword and then tried an experiment. To make her look even more menacing, she has some augments on her arms. That helps her with heavy loads or putting more strenght on the hits. It's just a staple and some greenstuff.
|I have that t-shirt too!|
The last mini of this batch was something I honestly hadn't thought about. It was this post at Leadplague (awesome, inspiring blog! Thanks, JB!) that brought my attention to the kind of people you may find close to a port/spaceport/whatever. Once I made the choice of mini (medieval girl), the greenstuff work was obvious ;)
|I mean the 80's leather jacket! :D|
Molly Melons is quite a renowned character through all Besenval Port. Though she has quite an Arbites file, in the end she remains mostly unmolested. Last time she got arrested a public demonstration was organized and the local dockworkers went on strike. The incident was solved with only 56 casualties, but costed Judge Uhring his position.
The word is that Molly is an anti-Imperium activist, but nothing has been legally proved. Anyway, she's a good person to start with if you are new to the neighborhood and want information on who's who...
This is all for now! The local community keeps on growing...
