He's got to, he's just stolen a bunch of stuff from space marines!

Also a big fan of Ursula LeGuin! The Dispossessed is in my top five books of all time, and she's easily on of my top three favorite authors. Left Hand of Darkness is of course a classic, and Lathe of Heaven is so unpredictable and beautiful. I only read the first Earthsea book but enjoyed it quite a bit.
Thanks! Making these guys has been some of the most fun i've had in a while.
Have you read her short stories too? The collection the Wind's Twelve Quarter's is one of my favorites. And her book of writing exercises is an excellent read for people who want to write.

They do academic readings and discussion on fantasy, sci-fi and classic literature and did "The Disposessed" a couple of years ago and more recently covered "A Wizard of Earthsea"
It's a really interesting listen and I heartily reccommend.
They've also covered Dracula, Dune, and a whole host of Tolkien (it's originally a Tolkien thing)
Also, I kinda like the gas mask snout. If you had a flamer for it instead of a Bolter it might tie in well. Horns are excellent!
Thank you! I haven't listened to too many podcasts but that one sounds neat, I'll check it out.
I wish i had a flamer to use, that would have fit well.
But for now, something rather different! I've been working on something else to cross out another box on the bingo sheet, and also just because it's fun. I've had these guys (half the box for the tempest of souls set) around for a bit. and i roughly finished them! So that checks off the box for finishing one half of a starter set, and i have some completed ghostly friends now!
Next will probably be one more of the snouty aliens, i found another snout! That will make five total, a good little squad.
