Well hey, ‘Alien’ can sound a little Xenophobic particularly in these enlightened times and since there are so many different kinds. Here in the Imperium we prefer to use XCDOXCHBS, and since humans are a minority we try to not piss XCDOXCHBS off. Clearly the Department of Classification and Acronymic Harmony has a great deal of work to do and a substantial volume of resources (since filthy lucre has long since been abandoned) have been allocated for the development of a much more manageable acronym.
Here we have a couple of rum coves, one of whom is a Xeno-Archiologist (obviously not the full title) and the other a rather fun armed (but naked!) pal.
The Archiologist is from the Ion Age range and even though she’s listed as a trader I think she looks pretty good digging through some smelly old ruins. The other chap is a Khurasan Alien of some sort, was it the assorted criminals set? I’m not sure. I really like him and think he’s got something of an early Dr.Who ‘man in a rubber suit’ vibe, which looks pretty cool.
So, it’s not long until the Rogue Stars rulest gets released and I’ve decared it to be a birthday treat! Hopefully it’ll be a nice, simple and fun system that I can have an excuse to paint up some figures for…….. my 15mm hoarding hasn’t diminished. Hopefully it’ll have a random encounter type thing in it for the solitary gamer, if not I’m sure I can adapt the one from Starport Scum.
As always there are other things on the go. I had the urge to sculpt a 10mm scale vampire count, which should be finished soonish and I’ve yet to get more half ogres done. Bit of a knock from a generous dose of man-flu (and yet going into work since it’s more peaceful!) so have been pretty low energy-wise. Getting back on form though, so once I get these essays past the draft stage and back to students in time for the Christmas holidays (to re-write!) I can relax and play a bit.
Thanks for looking.
