Well, since the second part of Pearl’s story isn’t finished, this week’s post is a few pictures of some of the figures that will find their way into games of 5150: New Beginnings. Along with some rambling about how my warped mind sees New Hope City.
The young ladies on roller skates are from Foundry’s Street Violence range. Where did the LFL (Lesbians For Life) Courier Service idea come from? Why, real life, of course. There is a courier service in Dallas owned & operated by a lesbian couple. Besides, what else would you do with modern/sci-fi miniatures on roller skates but use them as messengers?
This lady with a huge pet spider on her shoulder is the second version of Hasslefree’s Liralith. She is actually an elf from the fantasy line, but I think she fits well in a science fiction setting. I grew up in West Texas a place almost as dry as I envision New Hope. One of the creepiest things to witness out there are evenings where thousands of tarantulas come out onto miles of lonely paved county roads. So, I don’t think huge spiders would be out of place on New Hope.
These two are from Urban Mammoth’s Female Militia with pistols pack. I haven’t finished painting the other 3 figures from the pack.
Not only is red Pearl’s favorite color, it is also my favorite color. I really do have to work hard to keep from painting a lot of red on my miniatures.
This figure has proven difficult to photograph. Maybe I can get a better picture of her at a latter date. The figure is a smuggler from Reaper’s Chronoscope line. I painted her in the same color scheme as the uniform worn by Zoe (Gina Torres) from Firefly.
This petite young lady is our intergalactic neo-Marxist, Sara Reid. The figure is Hasslefree’s Maria.
Petty criminal Billy Pink, meet Detective Sgt. Sally Blue one of New Hope City’s finest when she isn’t on suspension.
What better way to end than with the back of Sally Blue. I can only wish that my own hair was that thick & long.
