  1. "STEP right up, ladiesangentlemen: come one, come all to the BERTON & BRADBURY MAGIC CIRCUS, home to the greatest-collection-of-esoteric-practitioners-the-world-has ever SEEN! WITNESS feats of legerdemain and sorcery beyond the grasp of mortal men! Be AMAZED by the death-defying stunts of our dexterous daredevil divas! MARVEL at the FREAKS OF NATURE collected-at-no-small-expense-to-purse-or-lifeanlimb from all corners of the earth! SEE the jaw-dropping power of the World's Strongest Man! GASP in awe at the lovely Beast-Tamer, who TOYS with RAVENOUS CARNIVORES as though they were but FEEBLE PUPS AND KITTENS! LAUGH at the antics of our inexhaustible supply of CLOWNS! Test your STRENGTH, try your LUCK, win fantastic PRIZES, yesSIR the world is YOURS at the CIRCUS!" Any pulp or fantasy game can benefit from a travelling circus which may or may not be (it will be) involved in sinister plots. For fantasy, you've got bards, wizards, knife-throwing rogues, beasts, illusionists, and diviners to contend with; and the circus as cultural institution probably peaked during the pulp era and the formative years of midcentury science-fiction/weird/horror authors. Ray Bradbury, for one, is almost obsessed with circus themes, and you'll find them in Leiber, Lafferty, Simak, and (perhaps a bit on the nose here,) Barker. In more recent times, our most circus-intense artist is easily Tim Burton, and the Bartons from Marvel Comics (Clint and Barney) are also deeply tied to the circus. Hence the names I picked for this latest project: the Chronoscope carnival, the Magic Circus. Here's the Ringmaster, Clive. (50277). A magnificently theatrical and over-the-top figure, stout and boastful. The elephant was, I think, a Schleich elephant calf which I modified with some paper accessories and paint. And here are some CLOWNS! Kosmo, the Killer Clown (02216, Dark Heaven Legends, needs to be tagged with the Circus tag btw.), is a scary little fellow. Horrible grin, horrible face, that giant lollipop can't be sanitary. Every circus needs a clown with a Fear aura (to keep the children in line). Zonkers (50247), comes with two heads and multiple accessories. Instead of the horrible scarecrow head I elected to use the friendlier one. He's the happy clown. The mallet is for the Test your Strength! High-Striker game. Mostly. And here's a shot including a Pulp Miniatures Drunk (from the Gangland Justice: 16th Precinct set) doubling as a sad-hobo clown. More to come!
