Alien vs. Predator: The White Queen
15 mm

The base inscription reads:
"To the last I grapple with thee;
from hell's heart I stab at thee;
for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee."

Captain Ahab was hunting a white whale, but this Predator seems to be facing something quite a bit more exotic and deadly.

I wish I could say the idea of relating this duel to Moby-Dick was some clever and oh-so-literate impulse, but it's probably influenced by watching "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan"... I was trying for a de-pigmented "facehugger" type colour on the "white" Queen, but she ended up looking quite green.

Here are some shots I took before I put the whole thing together:


  1. Wonderful, narrative work. You never cease to impress at 15mm.

    Of course that quote, translated into Predatorese, is RRARAAAAARRRRGH. Roughly. I'm a little rusty.

  2. 0_0 speechless.

    Since I'm from Barcelona I really appreciate how rare albino species are (one of a kind real-life Snowflake the gorilla anyone?)

    Better greeny than fleshy if you asked me. Odd but high contrast and never seen before xenomorph albino type.

    Love it.

  3. has the pred a "wooden" (cyber I guess) leg ?

    the more I look at it the greater my love for it.

  4. He does indeed have a "wooden" leg... glad you noticed! :)
