At last, a return to Berton and Bradbury's Magic Circus! Send in the CLOWNS! These are a pack of four untrustworthy chucklemongers from CP Miniatures, plus a fifth CP harlequin done by a different sculptor and sold separately. The special one I painted using inspiration from a Joseph Grimaldi poster. He's got a monkey! I painted that as a golden snub-nosed monkey, as those are among the most clown-faced of the monkeys. This is a clearly a clown in command, second only to the ringmaster. Other clowns will jump through hoops for him, sometimes even metaphorically. Next up, Fumbo! This clown may (MAY) actually have no other motive than entertaining children. Cheerful and bearing a honkable horn. On the other hand, those teeth look awfully sharp. We also have great clown Pagliacci, very funny clown. If you suffer from depression and want to end it all, Pagliacci can help. Bumpus the Stooge! Bumpus was inspired by Ed Kelly's hobo-clown look, dialed up a bit. Carries a shovel at the end of the parade. Astute observers will note that Bumpus's pink complexion is all makeup. He is a true clown, not just pretending. And here's Bogo! Inspiration should be obvious for this one. I might modify that upraised hand with some balloons. A group shot of the whole carload: And with all the clowns, including Reaper and Brigade Games: More angles:
