All You Baddies Bound to Lose: Thrilling Tales
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingMy miniatures list has more varieties of pulp than a paper-mill town grocery's orange juice aisle. Mad scientists, apes, cultists, cosmic horrors, spacemen, sky pirates, zeppelineers, two-fisted heroes, etc. But not a lot of what was for several decades, the most common pulp villain. Let's paint something for our heroes to fight! Artizan's Thrilling Tales line comes through once again. Here are two horrible and officious jerks, on a pre-dawn hunt for Resistance agents. "Oberst von Stroop" is the one with the gun; "Major Kreipe" the one with the satchel and the dueling scar. We've seen a couple of the Resistance before, but I believe this is the first time I've posted a picture of "Georges." I had fun with the argyle sweater-vest. Georges' briefcase contains a surprise! Some more baddies: "Colonel Braun," a perfectly pompous sculpt, and the "Kaiserin" from Brigade Games. (Also Erwin Rommel, previously posted elsewhere). (Couple more pictures of Zenith's commandoes, from 50075, if you click below.) And on another, stranger front... This is "Private Trummer," an old and not particularly motivated soldier sent on special detail with a special unit. He sees nothing, he hears no-othing, and he knows NO-O-O-OTHING! It doesn't do to see, hear, or know too much when you're out with the armored Sturm Battalion Zorn. (Pictured: Flamethrower and Rifleman III. I added an extra gas tank from Bombshell to the Flamethrower unit.) Battalion Zorn is led by "Captain Rohr," a merciless and ambitious creep. Funnily enough, for a man who sees and hears nothing, Private Trummer has a knack for not being around in a crisis... Finally, a group shot, as such groups should be.
