  1. It's not quite certain when the Zeta Reticulans started interfering in Earth affairs, but interfere they did. No one paid attention to a few crazed hillbillies or irate cattle ranchers at first, but a pattern began to emerge. They are expert bioengineers and their masterful probulations appear geared towards creating 'sleeper agents.' Some wild-eyed conspiracists insist they have agents in the highest levels of the Earth Government, but this is clearly paranoid raving. It is possible they are remote descendants of the far-flung High Martian empire. (These are Black Cat Bases Aliens. I made a dumb mistake and painted some of their tunics dark purple; it didn't work, but a thin coat of metallic pale blue over it works great. The spaceship is a pepper-grinder lid and a part from a discounted dollhouse grill, plus some earpieces from earphones the cat decided to destroy and some bits and bobs.) The Zeta Reticulans have mastered the matter transmitter and the tractor beam. (Palettes and yellow transparencies.) 50291, Billy Joe, Zombie Hunter, features as a guest star.
  2. The whole gang (at least, until I order Prof. Laura Pringle from Chronoscope)! Thank you for bearing with me on this project!
  3. The good citizens of Arkham need to be informed of important developments (for a modest price). Here to print all the news that's fit for the fragile sanity of mankind are the staff of the Advertiser. Editor Lorenzo and Flashbulb Casey, as well as the newsboy, are from Murch's News Hounds, in the Gangland Justice line. Bridget O'Rourke (sculpt II) is from Rattrap Miniatures. I love the dynamism of these sculpts! "Now listen here! Papers need to sell, and they don't sell anymore without we get the pictures! You come to me with cockamamie stories about metal men, I want PROOF! The public wants EVIDENCE! and while we're at it--" [assorted screaming and hollering] "--Hey, *dont* you interrupt me, this is important!" (Guest appearance by a repurposed Iron Giant promotional figurine.) I liked this gag so much I also set it up with 77113, Reaper Bones' Eldritch Demon (whom we all know is a Star-Spawn of the O.G. G.C.) Bridget is great at conveying the exact second where "plucky" switches over to "terrified."

    Harlem Unbound

    Black Cat Bases has a "Mr. Big" in their civilians/townsfolk line, and I thought he'd do fine as John Barlow, businessman, impresario, patron of the arts, and nightclub owner. Our investigative journalist in the peach dress, and the newsy hanging about, are again from Murch's Pulp News Hounds. The young flapper in the peacock ensemble is from Eureka. She was actually one of the first minis I tried freehanding! You can tell Mr. Barlow's patience with Miss Imelda's questions (regarding how, exactly, his new venture is being funded) is running short.
  5. My obsessions with both pulp undersea exploration and being a cheap bastard were richly rewarded the other day at the thrift store! Someone had donated a vaguely sea-turtle shaped submarine toy in garish green and silver plastic. For 65 cents, it became mine! Internet research says it was once a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figure accessory (pic is not mine and I certainly didn't get the box with it!), but it's going to become a chelonian exploration pod for 32mm bathynauts! Gonna copper and brass that sucker up, and go over it with Nihilakh oxide, and paint thin rust-streaks for the little rivets, and glue probably superfluous garbage to the hull! I also got my hands on a Bones 77590, Father Dagon. Plan on some shiny blue colors with Doug-Jones-fish-man-style stripes. I feel there's a display to be made here.
  6. Arkham's Finest represented by Murch's Pulp 16th Street Precinct (the set whence the hobo came), one of his Dangerous Dames, and one of his Journalists (the Kolchak-looking fellow with the jaunty tie.) "All right, men--and ladies too--keep a sharp eye out for that son o' Hell deFazio! Detective Flanagan has a tip he's over on the East Side tonight. Roz, if'n you see him, whistle, and deck him if you get the chance. O'Malley, keep your gun handy. Jaysus mary! Watch where ye're pointing that thing, O'Hanlon!" Carmine deFazio, Mob Hitman, represents their opposite number. "Nyeh! Eat lead, coppers! You'll never take me alive, see?"
  7. Edna the Cat Lady, 50235, is a marvelously grumpy and slipshod old biddy. Look at that lopsided jumper, the drooping sock, that sour scowl! What a beautiful sculpt! And the kitties are great too. (One I gave to a friend and another I set aside for a freestanding kitty.) Thought she'd pair well with a Bob Murch Gangland Justice pulp sculpt from his The 16th Precinct set. He was advertised as the town drunk, but I elected to make him a full-blown derelict hobo. I took some wire cutters to his suit and hat to make a couple of tatters, and proceeded to gunge him up. This is not the wealthy, high-society side of Arkham. "Look here, what are you doing? I won't have it! Get away from there at once, before I call the police!" "uuuh, ma'am--I w's jush--" "Don't you ma'am ME! You smell of liquor! and worse! That horsemeat is for the precious kitties, not for you!" "Aw, it'sh a crool worl' ma'am, a crool worl'...an' I ain't had a bite to eat since y'strdy..." "Well! You've certainly managed to find more than enough to drink, at least! And shouldn;t you be ashamed, a big man like you sneaking around and frightening old ladies half to death! You're strong and healthy enough to be working..." "An' I bin looking, mish, only won't noboddady hire a tramp with no fixsh addresh." "Or a drinking habit, I'd wager!" "That'sh...that's a pretty cat you got there, mish....I usedta have a cat when I w'z a littleun...swee' tabby, longgg...timeago." "Hmph! ...Well, ...you look strong enough and I have some heavy boxes that need moving. Maybe I'll see if there's any horsemeat left. And for God's sakes let's get you cleaned up. This is a respectable street. And wipe your boots on the mat, Lord knows what you've tramped them through."
  8. Couple of tabletop Bones figures I painted over the winter and have been able to finally finish now that spring is here. The Black Mist is actually done in shades of blue and purple, but the subtleties don't show on my cheap camera.

    59038: Houngan, sea captain

    A couple of tabletop Bones I painted over the winter and finished up this week. Not sure of the sea captain's number yet, I don't think he has been released.
  10. Howdy, Have your completed essays turned in by the end of the day... Hand written only, Kev! P.S. Click to zoom
  11. I painted Reaper's Dee Dee Astro Girl from the Chronoscope Line, I put her on a resin base and used a little Scale 75 Moonstone Alchemy so it would appear as if she was searching for minerals. Then the Mindworms emerged! They were made from the eyestalks of the Bones Eyebeast. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77837-50227-dee-dee-astro-girl-by-glitterwolf/&page=2
  12. Finally got another of my Counterblast Lancer crew done, this time an Altanti Lanceguard. Really like the different species in this setting.

    Stompy Robots

    Here's a couple of robots from Rattrap's pulpy sci-fi game. I painted one in brass and one in bronze, the color shows better in person. I made bases from Reaper 1" rounds which were hollow on one side (the ones we got at Reapercon) and a happy Seppuku stamp. In the background is a little terrain marker I made with a plastic barrel from Secret Weapon, a cannister from a Reaper weapon sprue, and a piece of textured foil from a coffee can.
  14. hey , i would like to get a comparison scale for Franck Buck with some of the most common 28mm on the market like Wargame Foundry, Crusader, Artizan, Coppelstone, etc... The main problem is the scale different between several miniatures in the Reaper range. For example, the dwarfs, when you have to mix them with other manufacturers is sometime difficult. thank you for your interest regards Eric
  15. New York Bop by Ghetto Miniatures is getting relaunched on the 1st May, after coming so close to funding first time around, hopefully with a restructured campaign they will fund this time round. New York Bop is a tabletop skirmish game set in the 1970s, gangs battle it out over a campaign map of the New York City boroughs or just in one-off games. There are 4 starter gangs to choose from, with various pledges ranging from just PDF rules to create your own gang member. Il post the start time once it has been determined by Ghetto Miniatures.

  16. Part of getting back into painting after such a long absence involved painting figures that I found to be pure fun. As I greatly enjoy painting Pulp I decided to put together a team that used a mix of figures from Reaper and Counterblast. Reaper figures are so versatile, they can mix well with just about anything out there. Reaper figure #50129 sculpted by Patrick Keith Counterblast figure, sculpted by Patrick Keith Counterblast figure, sculpted by Patrick Keith Reaper figure, #59041, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Counterblast figure, sculpted by Patrick Keith Patrick is one of my favourite sculptors as his work has so much character. Further, he's done so much work with Reaper, he's like Reaper Family to me. Thank you for looking.
  17. I have finally completed my Dark Debts crew for Malifaux :) Jakob Lynch and Hungering Darkness The Illuminated A Beckoner and Mr. Graves Looking forward to comments and criticism! More (and larger) pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/malifaux-neverborn-dark-debts/
  18. This month has been really busy, but I managed to at least get a couple more Mekkus done. These ones have a pair of Pulsar Rifles. And here is my Mekkus squad now. Still 3 more to paint from what came in the KS.

    [GROUP/OPEN] Counterblast!

    Decided to start on my Counterblast! figs in the new year, and I know there are some others on the forums here that were in on that kickstarter, so figured I'd start and open topic. I went in for the Ultonium level and got one of each starter set. That's a good sized pile o' figs.... I'm planning to start with the Mekkus. Let's open those bags and take a look. Ummmm, hmmm. I need to go sort out what belongs with what I think....
  20. Hey all, Been a while since I posted a WIP, but I'm working on one of the ReaperCon resin exclusives and I'm keen for some feedback. I'm pretty much done with the skin and hair so far, but I'm keen to hear what people think of it. In particular I'm trying to think more about how hair should be highlighted, but blue hair is maybe not the easiest to do that with. Also worth noting that the green eyes don't pop as much as I thought they would, but I'm not disappointed (at least not enough to try a do-over). Might have needed to add some white to the green. The yellow cloth has only had a single coat of base colour so far, to give me an idea of how it's all going to look, and the headdress, collar, bracers, weapon et al are going to be silver. Not 100% sure on what colour the boots will be yet, but my wife suggested making them silver as well which could work; any advice for painting metallic cloth would be appreciated. I kind of like the slightly Martian look that the base has so far, so I think I'll continue in that direction.
  21. I managed to get two more figures painted for my Lancers squad in May. First up we have the Captain, He's a Shrinaar, which I guess are a race of space-faring cat people. And we also have the "Veteran" H0pr Bot. He's seen some action and hasn't even had time to get the second hand replacement parts repainted.... Here's a shot of my Lancers squad at this point.
  22. I also managed to whip through a couple of Mekkus Aggressors. These are the version with twin Particle Beam weapons. Here they are with the Defender I'd already done.
  23. This is the first figure for the 2nd faction I'm painting up for Counterblast, the Mekkus. They are your classic all conquering robot race who turned on their creators and are not running rampant across the galaxy! I started with the Defender #1, a heavily armored defensive unit. Hopefully the fairly simple paint scheme will make it quick to get the whole squad painted up.
  24. And here is a H0pR Bot for my Lancers squad. He's a great fig, lots of ways to pose him. I had a lot of fun painting him up.
  25. Another member of my Lancers squad, this is the Human Brute. I had real problems with his eyes, so I decided "It's Sci-Fi" and gave him silver implants. Really happy with how the rest of him came out though.
