Chick Challenge 2008

Rebel Alliance Pilot and droid
25mm



"They're moving our base to Dantooine, R5. It looks pretty safe and out of the way to me."

This is my Chick Challenge 2008 entry, in the Sci-Fi category. No chance of winning anything, of course, since the quality of the other entries is pretty high. The miniatures are 80's-era Grenadier figures, the holo generator is made from Zoid toy parts.

The Short, the Bad and the Ugly

Dwarf Gunslinger
16mm




A minor conversion of a plastic dwarf given to me by MPJ in the Coolminiornot.com Miniature Exchange #16. Frankly, these aren't very good figures, the plastic casting method ruins too many details at the sides of the miniature. But I liked the subject matter, at least as a starting point.

(Re: comment below, he's 16mm tall, but in 28mm scale)

There's never an octopus wrangler when you need one.



The very deep did rot : O Christ !
That ever this should be !
Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs
Upon the slimy sea.


Some sculpted tentacles seemed right for this guy's base. He's not quite done; I still have to do some highlighting, detailing etc.
