View Full Version : Grymn, the army and the super-soldiers

31-10-2011, 10:30
The Grymn were bio-engineered Space-Dwarfs that were created to carry out all of the dangerous work that asteroid mining could provide. They were a slave race that eventually escaped and launched into the universe as a new species.

They are exceptionally hardy and are outstanding artificers and scientists but were forever hunted by their creators. That meant that they had to build armies for all environments...






They created dangerous war engines capable of destroying worlds and eventually, they gained allies that helped them to rid themselves of the pursuit of their creators. That led to a settled life where a lot of the larger, more dangerous equipment was destroyed and recycled.

...but the scientists continued to work and turned their attentions to building a more powerful soldier. Their efforts were split in two directions; Personal equipment and body enhancement. This led to the development of super-light , powerful armour and a range of super-serums and genetic manipulation that enhanced a Grymn's body to extraordinary levels...

...Welcome the Super-Grymn:

The first was Black Widow; martial artist beyond compare, with reflexes that enable her to dodge a bullet:


Next came Hurricane; able to run at the speed of sound and use vibration to penetrate solid structures:


Following those two is Juggernaut; virtually indestructible and super-strong:


It was then that the scientists decided that a leader should be found and Nick Fury joined the team. He is an expert strategist who has mastery over all weapons and is a highly trained soldier:


Finally (at the moment) we have Puck; smaller than a normal Grymn, his body took on the properties of hardened rubber, giving him super-resilience, high strength and the ability to leap great distances:


The scientists continue their work...they are currently working an some super light armour and have branched out into the specialist research area of Gamma Radiation and how it affects the cell structure of a Grymn...

...more to come...

...so there will be more to come :) .

Really funny models! But I think She-hulk should be a little more tall

So should Juggernaut and Puck should be a lot shorter...but that is the beauty of this project. I am able to mess about with sizes as a result of them being Grymn super-soldiers rather than their Marvel characters. They are Grymn who have been given super-serums/technical gizmos to make them have super-powers.

Rather than make all of the characters up, I thought I'd go for known characters so that people will have an idea of what powers they have more than anything. As a result, I have kept to powers that can be explained away as 'enhanced' (like super speed and super strength) rather than 'fantastic' (like being able to fly without armour, use magic or go invisible).

If I was going for proper superheroes, I'd have Vision, Wolverine, Night Stalker and a host of other weird characters but they are far to difficult to explain away with serums/genetics/technology.

Haha these are freaking amazing! I love Puck and Nick Fury :D

Cheers :) .

Unfortunately, I have stalled a little on the Grymn Superheroes...but I thought it would be kind of cool to have a group of aliens a bit like the Lantern Corps from the Green Lantern world. The beauty is that there is no limit to the different shapes and sizes of alien that could be in the group...so the Star League was born.

First up was Morg:


Closely followed by Sharrak:


With Torphig arriving next:


I have another few that are WIP and they will range from small to large and will also vary from humanoid to definitely non humanoid so it should make for quite an interesting little team.

Captain Britain:


...and Fixit, for the Star League:

Next up...who knows? Beast maybe?

Loved the read and pictures, very original and great skills. Keep 'em comming and do your thing.

EDIT: I usually wait a bit before giving stars, but 5 stars given to correct the low number. You would have gotten them anyhow after another page of pictures, so get going!

Who gave this thread a low rating? Jealousy, I tell you!

Grymn are awesome and your Grymn superhero sculpts are made of win, not modelling putty. Five stars for you! Five stars, I say!

Love you take on the Grymm Super Heroes :)

Consider me subscribed.

Happy Gaming,

Thanks :).

I am glad that some people approve of my obsession with the little folk (not everyone is as open to my ideas as others so I am not surprised by a negative vote or two).

I have hit a bit of a sculpting blip at the moment so the project has stalled...but once I get back to it, I have a partially finished Beast and Goliath to be getting on with.
