I've previously posted Hasslefree's Velma analogue 'Louise' as a Miskatonic library assistant. High time I got the rest of the gang together.
A cheap toy VW bus is key to this whole thing. The flowers and turquoise are my addition.
We have Not-Fred-for-Legal-Reasons! (Barney, postapocalyptic version. No ascot, sadly, but a more dynamic sculpt.)
Not-Daphne! (Felicity, also post-apoc version; she looks good with a bat)
Not-Shaggy and his Great Dane! (Wolsey, standard version, and Hamlet; the box of SNAX I made from a chunk of sprue)
And Not-Velma (Louise, featured in another post.)
More turnaround pix:
What sorts of shenanigans would these meddling teens get up to? and why would they be hired by the circus? (Obviously, the circus doesn't want or need the regular police, even if they could help with spooky crimes.)
Shaggy would immediately volunteer to check out the midway, I think.
"Hey Scoob! You ever had a turkey leg...wrapped in cotton candy?"
*doglike sounds vaguely approximating the phrase "Not yet!"*
Daphne splits off to search for clues (there are plenty),
Behold! A performer about to take a Louisville Slugger straight to the groin!
Somebody has released the animals from the Beast-Tamer's act!
Good thing Barney knows how to make himself look big and loud, not like panther prey! That'll scare them off.
Nothing beats legwork and research for getting to the bottom of a problem. Somebody's been embezzling and cooking the books, if Velma's calculations are correct (they are).
Hope you enjoy...I certainly did!
Hasslefree specializes in characterful badasses, and I thought it good to paint a few of them up like my merc Frank Russo. Meet the Major, Ekaterina, Rowen, Alex, and Tank, along with their previously posted colleagues:
In several cases they have been modified or accessorized. My FLGS had some leftover GW Bitz they were kind enough to let me plunder, and between that, a GW scout walker's leftover bitz, and Bombshell tool sprues there were plenty of canisters and accessories to go around.
Here is the Major. (Hasslefree designation Major Hoare.) I added the gas tanks and the hose to his weapon. One canister is pyrophoric, the other, an extinguisher. The Major is acutely aware of which is connected at all times. I assume the cigar is a futuristic electronic device, for that would be most unsafe otherwise.
Ekaterina appears to be one of Hasslefree's analogues to Black Widow. I added some canisters and a Bombshell machete.
Rowen here really sold me on this project. Love that dynamic and confident stroll, and the flippy hairstyle. They are very secure in who they are, even more so with a portable GW missile strapped to their back.
Alex has access to guns and grenades but prefers sharp blades. [This mini, unlike his colleagues, comes in like six pieces; pin and glue accordingly.]
And of course there is Tank. Tank is not Hasslefree, but rather a leftover GW scout walker pilot. I've posted in the past about diversity in minis, and resolved to follow through on that by giving him a souped-up wheelchair/personal mobility device with some extra bells and whistles. Tank sees your wheelchair-inaccessible stairs and is prepared to turn them into an accessible ramp of smoking rubble. GW parts plus parts from a toy car I found under a refrigerator.
And lastly, a repaint of Bombshell's Maelee, to get her in line with the Task Force dress code. Also added a couple pouches and canisters.
Together they make a formidable team, good for spacefuture or cyberpunk settings. What sorts of mayhem mightn't they get up to...for the right price, of course?
When I was taking pictures of my Samedi yesterday I realised that I've never gotten around to taking pictures of the Tick Queen. Since she's a Reaper mini, she definitely belongs here.
Painted her up in 2016. At that time I just bought some fluorescent paints and I liked to paint eyes with them. Enjoy.
The new student assistant at Miskatonic's Orne Library! Already Ms Dinklage (Hasslefree's "Louise") has proven to be adept at scholarship and library science, and not easily frightened (this latter being a VERY useful job skill at Ol' Misk). When asked about her tremendous sang-froid she was evasive, mentioning 'friends from [her] summer job' and 'travels in dark corners of the earth.'
With some of her fellow-students:
And with others on the library faculty:
