Classic Pulp Science Fiction Female Space Trooper with Ray Gun 25mm Game Miniature

The mid Twentieth Century was the golden age of science fiction when space travel became a possibility in the minds of millions around the world.  Through the pages of the pulp magazines and paperback books, on the giant silver screens in movie theaters, and on the small home television tubes, men and women ventured into the great unknown of space.

Today’s miniature presents a classic science fiction icon in the form of a female space trooper.


As with so many of the early renderings, our heroine wears a tight form fitting uniform, which at least is less revealing than some of the space suits depicted in a less enlightened age.


Unlike many of the weak, defenseless female space travelers who appeared in the early stories, this female trooper possesses a more independent, aggressive personality.  Her facial expression shows a sense of self reliance, her body language indicates self assurance.  Certainly the large ray gun she carries reflects her ability to handle herself in combat.


This game figure is sculpted in 25-mm scale.  It could appear in any science fiction role playing game or miniature war game set in a classic sci fi setting.
