The Floating World of Lady Urokubi

The Lady Urokubi
15 mm



An influential socialite and traveler in human space, Urokubi has used the most advanced cybernetics, repulsorlift and micro-teleportation technology to give herself a truly extreme body modification.  Nutrients, blood supply and neural impulses are transmitted freely between transmat gates in her body's neck and her head, while brain implants allow her to effortlessly control her body while her head hovers independently of it.

The figure is a slightly modified "SGF23 Rokurokubi" (Japanese headless vampire) from 15mm.co.uk.

"You are as lovely as ever, Lady.""And you, as obsequious as ever, Ambassador."

Edit: here's a scan of the rug pattern for those who liked it:

    2. I don't suppose the floor and/or wall in your vignette are printable files you have?

    3. The wall is the base from a Dave Graffam paper model:

      (Aka the pylon in my Chuhuac racers pic, I love to repurpose things!)

      The floor is a random scrap of Japanese paper from a crafting pack I got my daughter for Christmas ;). I will scan it and post it here asap but it has metallic inks so it may not look as nice.

  8. The title of your post... and the miniatures... just made my day. It's like a very dangerous haiku by Issa. Amazing work! Happy New Year!

  10. This is the sort of thing that I miss when I dont check my blog reader often enough.

    I love this. I never thought of having a mobile transmat device allowing for functioning circulatory (etc) systems :D
