Jamal and Osman, Artizan

Recommended Posts

Just a couple more Artizan minis: Jamal, the Bedouin in traditional garb and Osman in linen suit and fez. Versatile for a number of characters, from late Victorian expeditions to cosmic horror to pulp adventure to Cold War thriller.  It's been a long day and I'm too tired for a dialogue story, but I fancy the two are engaged in espionage with a paranormal twist, as in Tim Powers' "Declare." They would CERTAINLY love to get their hands on that coffer Aziz and Farouk stole; there are agencies and empires that would love nothing more than weaponized curses.

...Ah nuts. It has been a long day; this was supposed to go under "Show Off." My apologies.

Great as always.  :-)

 

"Master, I am uneasy.  Farouk and Aziz are past their time to meet us."

 

"Not to worry, Jamal.  They will arrive soon, I am certain."

 

"Master, I worry about the curse...."

      Eureka has a two-pack of figures in their Pax Limpopo line called "Hench and Coach," and they are the most corpulent double-chinned British spherical bastards imaginable; Dickensian caricatures after the style of Nast or Tenniel. I had to have them. Didn't bother affixing the coachwhips. They are about halfling-sized in 32mm scale, and walrus-like giants in 15mm scale. You should be able to hear a bassoon-and-tuba soundtrack when looking at them. 

      I'd also painted up some minis from Artizan's "Thrilling Tales" line: Miss Greentree, Private Campbell, and Tankie Bob. Each of them is full of personality. Greentree I painted as an Agent Carter-type. Campbell was where I found tartan is not my forte. Could have come out worse. Bob is a scruffy fanatic and I love the sculpt. I figured Ungentlemanly Warfare was a good setting for the three of them.

      Didn't order this fella; there was a minor mixup in my order (which was corrected, I must say, with incredible speed--thank you, North Star/Artizan customer service!). BUT--I'll not complain about more pulp-era characters to paint! The Desert Fox is pretty useful for a variety of campaigns of varying pulp levels.
      Tried to make the colors match his official portrait. Here he is in a North African setting, with a toy car that is historically inaccurate but a good color match. A tank would have been better, but as we all know, a field-marshal goes to war with the army he has, not the army he wants.

      I call this one "Erwin Has A Bad Day." Special guest appearances by WWWOz Lion, Zenith, and Frank Buck.

      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. 
      More: 


      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. 

      More:
       

      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.

      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.
