Upstairs, Downstairs II: Diesel-Powered Boogaloo

Recommended Posts

More class-conscious minis! Featuring a pair of Artizan's Domestic Servants, Reeves and Maisy; Artizan's Remy as the long-suffering waiter and Signor Ferrari as a Titan of Industry, and another of Eureka's 1920's Women as a Bright Young Thing. 

Remy, unfortunately, had a cat-related fall which gave him an unwanted nose job. The tycoon looks like his paint is abrading; that's an artifact of silver-on-grey pinstriping. Looks good in 3D but did not photograph well at all.

Awesome!

 

I can see there is a lot going on!

I'll bet that manservant has the hots for the maid, but she is already engaged to the younger one in the red coat.

Of course the butler knows all.

He even knows where the lady of the house goes at nights when her husband is playing bridge with friends.

Or is he?

Tangled webs of intrigue! A *secret* engagement, of course, for Wodehousian dramatic purposes. And of course neither bridge nor whist is being played, for certain!

Love the turquoise blue shade on the dress with the silver

Thank you; it was a Reaper MSP sample just a couple shades greener and paler than usual turquoise. Tried to make the silver stripes radiate out in an Art Deco style.

      A lovely sculpt from Bombshell, Mi-Sher is billed as a Mongolian princess. I had a lot of fun with her dress.



      This post seems as good as any for a pair of Chinese Pirates I got years ago from Eureka. They both have a pudao or glaive. They were among my first forays into freehand back in the day--the one with the hat has a silver loong dragon on his back, and the hatless one, a crane.

      It's about that time of year!  Painted a while back, but didn't photograph until recently. 

      The Horned Hunter, Bones version. 89033. A magnificent Fey Lord of the Wild Hunt. 

       
      A couple of Eureka Miniatures fantasy-line Fauns that look suitable for the Horned Hunter's henchfey.
       


       
      The beautiful and insectile Fairy, 14469. Remember, the Fey may LOOK human, but they don't think like people at ALL. 

       
      And her little brother, the Feral Child faerie from Familiars 2, 77196. This guy gives off an air of tiny menace and unpredictability. Maybe he'll trade a shiny apple for a riddle, maybe he'll cut your hamstrings in your sleep. Maybe both!
       

       

       
      To avoid an overwhelming tide of photos, other angles are shown below:

      More nautically-inclined figures! 
      This beautifully-sculpted old salt is from Artizan's Thrilling Tales: Curse of Fairhaven. (He also comes in a 3-pack of Eccentrics, if you also want a swami and a top-hatted vagrant with a meathook.) I give you: Mad Jack the Lighthouse Keeper! 



      The next two are from Black Cat's Fishermen. Old Elias, forever with pipe in hand, and Dockside Dan, a handy man with a chain who will not take anyone disrespecting the sweater his old ma knitted for him.

       

      And lastly, the cabin boy, Mikey. He was part of a cheap, poorly pre-painted  ArtMinds Diorama Family Set that I got on impulse (because 4/5ths of them are EXACTLY the Rick and Morty family, and Reaper has a Mad Scientist that is exactly Rick). This is the fifth guy; I didn't repaint him, but those eyes are perfect for a young man from Innsmouth before the Change takes place.

      From Artizan's Thrilling Tales line, a distinguished academic in kente robes and kufi hat, with a colobus fly-whisk. A venerable elder deserving of respect and attention. 

      I cheated a bit; a lot of the lines are in pen. Tried to make it clear there are at least two different patterns of cloth going on.
