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!
Coincidentally, I had this figure very nearly done two days ago when the sad news of Diana Rigg’s passing was made public.
It always was a tribute to her incandescent portrayal of Emma Peel in the old British TV show “The Avengers”, but now it’s a memorial as well. Requiescas in pacem, Ms. Rigg.
The figure is “Pandora King (Classic)” from Crooked Dice miniatures. Crooked Dice has a minis game based on cult TV and they’ve produced a lot of different figures suitable for that sort of storytelling.
Happy birthday, @TheAuldGrump and @Inarah. I hope you enjoy this. Notes follow after the photos.
This is Grenadier’s Hippogriff, #138 from the Fantasy Lords series way back in 1983, now sold in lead-free pewter by Mirliton Miniatures, Italy. It’s well sculpted, with securely fitting wings.
I wanted to paint something different from the common hippogriff colorings, something with a little challenge to it. So I decided to go with several black and white patterned creatures. The front end is based on an osprey, the wings on a hoopoe’s, and the hindquarters on a zebra, all somewhat modified to suit the figure and to blend where the shifts happen.
Whenever you’re going to paint a chimeric model, a creature made up of the parts of other creatures, it’s a good idea to go look at real animals to see how their colors and feathers and skins look, and also how they blend into other things. If nothing else, there are excellent visual resources on the internet.
