The West, both Wild and Weird, was a diverse place! Apache tribes featured prominently in history and in fiction, but not on my shelves...until now!
Artizan has some good Wild West figures, and a 3-pack of Apache characters suited my purposes perfectly.
Especially this guy:
What a great face. So much caution, circumspection, and tired-of-this-bullbroccoli-ness.
Here are the other two, warriors and men of renown. Gave them a little more color and pattern, as well as the classic line across the face.
And because Deadlands monsters are literally made for Weird West settings and these fellows are clearly urging caution regarding SOMETHING, here is Some Thing. A Desert Thing, Bones version (91008). It's delightfully horrid. You want no part of this Thing. Painting the horrible slick teeth and gums of the inner jaw was a treat.
This is going to be one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted, so I thought making a WIP thread would be a good idea. If everything goes well, I plan to enter this beastie at ReaperCon this year, so fingers crossed!
This is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head for awhile, and started gathering materials for it last year.
My plan is to take this lovely critter:
and rather than using the shipwreck as a base, use half of one of these:
and paint the Kraken to look all spacey and such.
So! To that end, I now have one of these!
I'll just be using the top half for the base, though:
Which means that the bottom hemisphere is available for...testing.
I like to think of this as an "all-that-can-eat-you meal", best prepared deep fried. :-)
This beastie was very challenging to paint, and all throughout I kept trying to figure out what I would do for a base. The shipwreck is awesome, but it left the tentacles so close to the tabletop that I felt it might make play challenging, assuming we ever use it, so I figured it needed some seafloor and weeds.
