l-oc-the capture by TriffRaff l-oc-the capture by TriffRaff
"Give me a moment, I'm still bleeding here!"
"Lass, you are be to wear it now, or to bleed more. This time we be to shoot you on the head..."


Capturing a 35-foot tall alien is a tricky business. Even when unarmed, thier sheer size makes them dangerous to Human footsoldiers. The simplest way of dealing with this (besides not taking prisoners in the first place) is to fit the prisoner with some sort of remotely-detonated mine. The threat of a gauranteed-hole in thier neck is usually enough to keep the giant alien in line.


My Legacy-Verse OC, Lieutenant Derge, during the Human-Alaereen war. Derge was quick to learn how to speak the Alaereen language, so he was his regiment's point-man when dealing with the alien amazons.... He doesn't speak the language well, mind you, but he's usually able to get his point across.

Not exactly, no. But I'm sure that I was inspired by Warhamme 40,000 when I sketched it...

Hm I bet he'd feel a bit more comfortable is someone was in the tank with the light weapon pointed in the right direction.

At least he shows an interest in learning their language. It'll come in handy if he has to occupy an Alareen city.

Could've been worse. "Lass, you are to wear me now, or to bleed more..."

The remotely detonated mines remind me of Running Man and the explosive collars they had which were triggered by electronic fences around the prison.

Someone should tell the medic dude to help tend his bleeding patient. Sure, he might be grabbed and pinned between her breasts, but it's a risk any combat medic should be willing to take! :)

Hopefully she'll only do that after she's stopped bleeding and wiped the blood from her hands.... And actually, the idea was that the medic is trying to get to her, but the soldiers are keeping him back until the prisoner is 'secured.'
