Butch "Killer" Davis (50094) is a beautiful clean sculpt, good and pulpy without being overdone. He also gave me an excuse to go ahead and complete a boxing/wrestling ring bit of terrain--it had been rattling around in my brain for some years. And now, with a box lid, some nails, some electrical tape, and a few bits of string, the dream has become reality. "I've earned my stripes, and the poor fool in the other corner's gonna be seeing stars!" I knew sculpting a side of beef ribs would be handy more than once. Good training. Click for a turnaround with Price the Trainer (originally a Groundskeeper from Artizan; I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this dude) Price's training style is...eccentric. (Hence the shovel.) Very big on the principle "prepare for everything." As such, he favors outlandish sparring partners with exotic styles. "Larry the Leprechaun," a vicious bareknuckle flyweight, for example. What if your opponent is hard to reach and nimble, a.k.a. 'the Oddjob Problem'? Or what if your opponent uses A CHAIR OH NOOOO! and employs the ropes in bizarre high-flying stunts? It's EL DIABLOOOOOOOOOO! (50035, last seen in the Weird West) Or how about a taller opponent with a bigger off-limit strike zone?! Think fast, Butch! It's La Mujer Increible! (50212, also seen previously) Managed that? Good start. Now let's put you up against a challenge. The brutish man-mountain Mister Hyde! (Modified Clay Golem, 02706)! Taller, stronger, bigger, meaner. Good luck! Oh, these were fun to photograph. Click for extra shots: The ring itself. In retrospect I should have had the string corners wrapping around the inside of the posts, but eh, not bad for 20 minutes and some junk,
I couldn't resist getting another Space Amazon from Hydra during their last sale. This is the Valkeeri Leader B, and she is good at her job. Those eyes say she has seen a lot of shenanigans and is not easily impressed. It was a gloomy day and I had to use flash photography, or you'd see more muscle definition shadowed; the sculpt by John Winters is excellent. Around the same time I picked up another Incredible Woman (50212) from Reaper and decided to paint her as one of these green-skinned amazons from the fungal jungles of Venus. I added a sealed-cardstock belt and a sidearm from 50025, the Futuristic Weapons set. But she is a muscular gal and prefers to settle things with furious punches rather than zap guns. Bob Ridolfi also knows how to make a well-toned lady. \. Here's a side-by-side comparison to show the size difference in these stunning statuesque sisters. And the whole green-skinned crew, now complete, for real this time, I promise!*
I painted up Reaper's 50212 Incredible Woman to resemble my husband's fire controller from the now defunct online game, City of Heroes. The fire critter is from Wyrd Flame base accessories set. He really likes it, so mission accomplished . As you can see from the reference pictures, she got a slight costume change...
