Galactic Detente

The Envoys Shorah and Darsoomi


"The Terran philosopher wilrogers reportedly said 'Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can find a rock'.  Not surprising, as Terrans are among the least diplomatic species I've ever met.  Still, they captured the existential importance of interstellar negotiation where, if consensus cannot be reached, the rocks sometimes arrive at a good fraction of the speed of light." - 3S'lith, Calamite historian

Shorah is a Bad Squiddo Games figure of Phoolan Devi.  This paint job is definitely inspired by the Expanse's Crisjen Avasarala... and her amazing wardrobe.


Darsoomi is a Stargrave figure, the distinctive hat made me think of the work of French graphic artist Moebius (Jean Giraud), so I tried to pay homage to his rich soft pastel palettes.

"Greetings, Envoy. What a generous gesture for you to travel
so very far for this meeting."
