As if I didn’t have enough to do, I started playing around with the design systems on the Hero Forge web site. I finally ended up ordering a couple of figures to see how they looked when done. I’ve been reading the various Bordertown books lately, so ended up drifting into some urban fantasy territory here.

It’s a little unfortunate that their system doesn’t have a playing pose, given the availability of the violin and bow. I do seem to accumulate musicians, though...

The necromantic spell effect wasn’t my first choice, but it looked like the safest from a structural integrity view, so I went with it. 

 

Both of these were done in the higher grade plastic, and I was pleased to

see that the layer lines were pretty much invisible after painting.

That's what I've always wondered about these figures, if their lines from the printer show up after the mini is created.  I I don't want to have to "compensate" paint for a bunch of horizontal lines. 

 

Two Gencons back they handed out free samples, so I had seen and painted one before ordering these.  I wonder if I ever had it in a show off thread? It was a very spiky orcish warlord...

I don’t recall seeing him. You should post him, just in case!

      Some of y'all may remember going to school in the 80's in your brand new corduroy pants.

      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!

      I haven’t picked up a brush these past two weeks, so I wanted to do something this morning.  Since I spent the whole day yesterday tracking down some partly finished 1/72 medieval polearm men, I naturally did something else. 
       
      Last year I showed the start of my urban fantasy  project.  I’ve added a few miscellaneous figures (like last year’s Gencon Reaper preliminary speed paint entry), but I’ve been stalled for a while.  Today was my day to unstall, a least a little bit.
       


       
      Leon, on the left, is a “Bones 91010 Houngan”.  Lucia is a Hero Forge figure, of an as-yet-unnamed Fae species.  (I used the bovine legs and the long fae ears.)  I feel better now that I’ve gotten something done this month.  
       
      (The mat, by the way, is from Frontline Games.)

      So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.
