Sworn defenders of the Galactic Nations. These super soldiers are cybernetically enhanced, gifts granted to them by the power source Heluim3. Because of these man made super powers they are only dispatched in the most dire of situations. Now an attack on the one of the largest heluim3 mining outposts in the system has forced the hand of the Galatic Nations and the Vanguard has been sent in.

  • Male

  • Super Soldier

  • Cybernetic Super Power



    These femme fatales descend from the Eridanus Supervoid, a dark matterless sector of deepspace and ransack mining outposts for Helium3, equipment and machinery. Because of their harsh living conditions they often have artificial limbs and support themselves on whatever they can steal. They've just begun an attack one the of the largest Helium3 outposts in the system, if they can make it out alive they will live like queens!

    • Female
    • Space Pirate
    • Artificial Limb

Pretty solid prizes here, nobody interested?

I'd be really interested if you were looking for programmer art, but I think my lack of artistic skills (2D and 3D) (and creative character making skills) would make any entry I make only good for a solid laugh smile.png

But if no one else enters the competition, and I submit a crappy programmer model, what are my chances of that shiny $1000?

On a more serious note: People of planet earth with decent artistic skills, Y U NO ENTER COMPETITION?! (Okay, that ended up being way less serious than I intended)

Cornstalks. You bring up a good idea, about a contest for programmers.

I'm making a note of this for later ;)

I'll field any questions anyone else has.
