My girlfriend's been fascinated by Antarctic exploration for a few months so when I saw that Reaper make an Antarctic Explorer figure, I had to get it and paint it for her. Here he is photographed in front of a porcelain iceberg she picked up at an art exhibit. She was really happy that I'd painted it for her but it took her about 30 seconds to say, "Isn't that the main guy from that Thing movie??"...

No! That's not the guy from the thing!

 

I couldn't believe it in the first place, but now there's no way not to see it! Don't deny it, Reaper! It's too obvious! Lumberjack beard, stylish leather jacket and those great sun glasses! That figure is clearly inspired by my return to Germany from Japan in last December. 7 weeks of not shaving ... yeah. Groovy.

 

Great paintjob! Really like the guy! Especially the fur inlets of his jacket a well done! Thanks for sharing!

I really like that figure and I wish Reaper had several different Artic Explorers to go with it.

 

You did a fabulous job painting that figure!

Thanks! It is definitely MacReady... if I had the slightest idea of how to convert a figure I'd try making a sombrero for him!

Can't link for obvious reasons, and they're in the UK, but EMP Miniatures do a set of Arctic Explorers if you're looking to expand the group

I just had a look and those figures are awesome. Thanks so much! I'm visiting my family in England at the end of August so I'll order some when I'm over there.
