Miskatonic's most intrepid researchers go to the ends of the earth for their research projects--and some ends are more terminal than others! 
Here's Reaper's Antarctic Explorer, 80072. (Though I'm sure he could work as an Arctic explorer, too, in a pinch.) Bearded, bespectacled, and well-insulated, this guy is perfect for the Pabodie Expedition. The barrel of his rifle was unfixably bendy, so I replaced it with a portion of straight-pin. Used the same color scheme as my Zeppelin crew. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Arctic ice holds Santa's Workshop and Captain America. The Antarctic ice holds shoggoths and the THING. Don't go digging in Antarctica.

"The sun never sets in January this far south, but my chronometer indicated I had been hiking for eighteen hours. In all that time, I could see no man or beast, but the persistent cries of "Tekeli- li! Tekeli-li!" sounded bleatingly in my ears."

"The monolith must have been in this valley for uncounted ages, exposed to sub-freezing temperatures since the advent of the glaciers, yet it was warm to the touch. No snow stayed on it."

"Day 6 in frozen hell. The katabatic storms have reduced visibility to all but nil. Have concluded Man has no place in interior of this blasted continent, here at the bottom of the world."

Good work on the explorer!

I like the special guests.

 

The snow makes it impossible to see further than a few inches, moving forward is difficult.

Step by step, If I lose my compass it will all be over.

Somehow I get a feeling I'm not alone here, must be my imagination, I just thought I saw a shadow in the distance, I'm going to investigate.

      Karla, Anime Heroine, is a beautiful sculpt with a great nurse hat. The miniskirt, while delightful, could be more pulp-era appropriate, so I sculpted a hemline extension. I also replaced a handgun with a syringe, and then gave her a couple of backup syringes and converted her other firearm to a needle gun. She is here to cure what ails you! 



       
      And with her colleagues, Anne Foster (50258) and Dr. Welby (50257):

       
      Stay healthy, folks, and get your shots!

      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:

      Bombshell just came out with a resin version of their dieselpunk pinup/supersoldier, Liberty. She's a great dynamic sculpt, zaftig and muscular with it. Now, we all know this is evoking some 'what if Haley Attewell became Captain America' vibes, but I've already painted up our red-white-and-blue hero before, as well as an Agent Carter type and even a Captain Canada. So, I might as well continue down the North American continent. Presenting: Capitan Mexica! 

       Click for the rest of the turnaround: 
      Alas, the resin gun she came with was fragile and I had to kitbash on a sturdier one. Her shield is taken from an Aztec warrior from this series.
      Not so much Nazi-punching to do, but she has plenty of threats to contend with that would imperil the good folk of Mexico:



      ...some stranger than others!


      And some downright bizarre: 


      Here she is with her northern counterparts:

      My miniatures list has more varieties of pulp than a paper-mill town grocery's orange juice aisle. Mad scientists, apes, cultists, cosmic horrors, spacemen, sky pirates, zeppelineers, two-fisted heroes, etc. But not a lot of what was for several decades, the most common pulp villain. Let's paint something for our heroes to fight!

      Artizan's Thrilling Tales line comes through once again. 
      Here are two horrible and officious jerks, on a pre-dawn hunt for Resistance agents. "Oberst von Stroop" is the one with the gun; "Major Kreipe" the one with the satchel and the dueling scar.

       
      We've seen a couple of the Resistance before, but I believe this is the first time I've posted a picture of "Georges." I had fun with the argyle sweater-vest.


      Georges' briefcase contains a surprise! 


      Some more baddies: "Colonel Braun," a perfectly pompous sculpt, and the "Kaiserin" from Brigade Games. (Also Erwin Rommel, previously posted elsewhere).



      (Couple more pictures of Zenith's commandoes, from 50075, if you click below.)
       
       
       
      And on another, stranger front...
      This is "Private Trummer," an old and not particularly motivated soldier sent on special detail with a special unit. He sees nothing, he hears no-othing, and he knows NO-O-O-OTHING! 


       

      It doesn't do to see, hear, or know too much when you're out with the armored Sturm Battalion Zorn. (Pictured: Flamethrower and Rifleman III. I added an extra gas tank from Bombshell to the Flamethrower unit.)

      Battalion Zorn is led by "Captain Rohr," a merciless and ambitious creep.


      Funnily enough, for a man who sees and hears nothing, Private Trummer has a knack for not being around in a crisis...


      Finally, a group shot, as such groups should be.

      This looks pretty fun. Apologies for formatting on my phone and stuff got lost. They pay a living wage
