Statuesque's Pulp Alley line is going away forever, but when I saw this figure I knew it was non-negotiable! There's a recurring character in my Weird West games, a yuan-ti pureblood and snake cultist called Doctor Apophis. I had been using the Deadlands Noir Houngan mini for this, but hoo boy. The serpentine features, from the smoothed-out ears to the wide-set eyes and fangs! The precision-incised hieroglyphs! Click for turnaround: "Farouk, can it be true? Did the ritual succeed?!" "Your doubt wounds me, Hassan; have you known me to fail in the past?" <INDEED, I LIVE AGAIN.> <IS IT NOT WRITTEN ON MY FLESH THAT I SHOULD RETURN? IN IMPERISHABLE WORDS OF THE HIERATIC SCRIPT THAT WILL OUTLAST THE HATED SUN.> <THOUGH YOU ARE BUT DOGS AND JACKALS, YET YOU WILL SERVE IN THE COMING NIGHT.> "Aziz, what does he say? I am unfamiliar with this dialect." "He...he says he is very pleased to meet you and looks forward to working with you, O Farouk!" (We've seen Aziz and Farouk before.)
I finished this guy Friday night, he was a rescue from the melt table at last Reapercon. He was relatively quick to paint, and pretty fun, too. Some of the shading I did on his 'belly' scales is hard to see due to the angle of the pics, but what you see on his bottom half is also present on his chest area, too. I got his eyes looking pretty good (although to be fair, they are a bit bigger than the average human sized figures eyes). I had thought about giving him some patterns on his scales, but decided against it. The base was one of the first ones I've done using base stamps; I'm not entirely happy with it, but it's not awful, either. More practice both with the stamps, and with what material I use for the base is in order. This one was straight Green Stuff. Thanks for looking, please let me know what you think. ETA----I put 2 SKU numbers in the title because he is available either by himself (14423) or in a multi-pack with 9 total figures (06155).
