According to the Stargrave rules, you should select your Captain first and select a background characteristic to provide some context for your leader.

Selecting a miniature from the Diehard Pile of Shame was relatively easy. She was the first one that came out of the box (I’ve got most of the entire Diehard catalogue of minis via the five or six KSs that have been run over the last five years or so) and hence I had left it to random fate to create the backstory to this fantastically detailed miniature sculpted by Tim Prow. So the miniature inspired the start of this narrative campaign…Selecting a miniature from the Diehard Pile of Shame was relatively easy.

This is a white-metal casting in 28mm ‘scale’ and as with all Diehard Miniatures has an ‘Oldhammer’ style - a nostalgic throwback to the 1990s. She is a single piece casting and has very little flash requiring sanding down. I will mount her on a 30mm lipped base for painting and will decide later if I want to create a customised base or a pre-cast resin base.

I came up with the name Soolyn Viers actually for a Star Wars inspired Hero Forge character in the May 4th Be With You competition on BoW/OTT, and I liked the name so that’s who my crew’s leader will be called.

SUBJECT:

Soolyn Viers is a Biomorph – a human who is not quite human anymore due to genetic manipulation. She was ‘grown’ like a lab rat on Science Base 12-92-X using the DNA from Homo Sapiens subject F843766G and spliced with DNA from Furcifer Pardalis subject T971255K.

The genetic manipulation appeared to work in that the combined organic construct FT894713726565GK or affectionately known as ‘Soolyn’ by the technicians was grown to maturity through the “Prow-Elliot-Williams-Luong” cryogenic accelerated masturation process (PEWLCAMP), which creates a viable life form of an equivalent Human age of 21 within a rapid three month period, and ‘on birth’ Soolyn was able to demonstrate the chameleon-like qualities expected alongside the sentient, intellectual standard of a human.

What Soolyn lacked was experience of the world beyond the laboratory and with the natural curiosity of Homo Sapiens and the hunger pains of the Furcifer Pardalis, Soolyn used her unique skills to elude the laboratory staff, as she exploited a timeout in the inspection routine and went exploring around the facility…
