Nom Nom Nom

In space No one can hear you Nom Nom Nom.

"Barbara to Beagle One can you hear me."

"Beagle One receiving Barbara go ahead you are loud and clear"

"We see movement Beagle base, Moving closer"

"Roger that Barbara We have no energy readings in that sector Probably just some space junk!"

"It's a man in an atmosphere suit Beagle Base, seems to be holding something, moving closer Beagle Base"

"Keep us informed Barbara. Still no energy readings are you sure it's a space suit? Confirm it's not a trick of the light and be prepared to see Doc when you get back inside. I say again no energy sources in your sector"

"Listen Yusef It's definitely a man. He's turning round I can make out the maple leaf patch on his left arm. Check the instruments again there must be an energy source it's a man I tell you."

"Sorry Barbara no readings at all."

"Are you sure it's turned on Yusef!"

"Of course it's bloody well turned on. I am tracking you and I am telling you there is nothing else out there.!"

"HE's turning round, I can see the visor is up and he's carrying the old type 17 issue laser rifle!"

"Stop pulling my leg Barbara now I know you are taking the piss those are antiques. You had me going there, nice one I was just about to call a tech to check the systems again!"

"Beagle Base seriously I am not kidding.  I can just about see his face now..... Oh my God..."

"Barbara, come in Barbara! Talk to me Barbara, Beagle Base to lieutenant Kopaks come in Barbara!"

"Dave, Barbara is not responding .... Barbara.... lieutenant Kopaks ... come in Barbara....."

    1. I was hoping that would be the order they would appear in the Analogue painting challenge. But they didn't. Oh well can't be helped.

      Thank you Bryan. It has been a while since I have painted a zombie so I need to get my zombie mojo back.

      Glad you liked the story. Thank you Bryon.

  6. Love it! Double love it! Really, really well done. I like the simple story (it got me wondering if that was from a series :P) and those photos, amazing! Just so...weird horror-y. I mean, I love your stuff but this is just fantastic.

    1. Ah, now I remember where the situation is familiar from! A guy here (well, our greatest writer) once wrote a short story about a certain captain that was checking his troops (WW1 sort of thing) and he walked slowly pass every soldier, picking out the fittest, best guys and once he touched them or called their name or something, they all went pale. In the end, he turns around and the narrator sees his face - a skull, indicating it was a Grim reaper. I really have to say how great this stuff is once again, amazing!

  9. A Canadian, ghost astronaut? And why not :-) .

    Excellent figure, Clint - was this painted on a whim or do you have a game planned for him?

    1. Painted mostly on a whim, but also because the latest painting challenge round was a "casualty" and I thought it would be different.

      The Canadian Maple leaf is because the guy running the challenge is Canadian. An yes it's a suck up!

      But alas no games planned at this stage. Thank you Hugh.

    1. Don't worry about things in space, worry about the monster under your bed! Don't let your feet touch the ground at night! And why is that wardrobe door slightly ajar. Maybe the monster in the wardrobe started to come out and then you looked that way! Worry more about the things in your own house than space terrors. Thank you Anne.

  11. Very retro Sci-fi, Tin -Tin never experienced anything like this. I had wondered why he had his visor up thoughuntil I got to the third piccy.
    Great figure and paintjob, especially the visor and "face".
