Xiang Lung (50170) and Pulp Figures Dragon Lady

Recommended Posts

Xiang Lung, 50170, is listed as a "Chinese Villain," but can anyone with a cuddly monkey be THAT villainous?

A master of terrible sorceries, most assuredly.

Bob Murch's Pulp Figures includes a set of Dangerous Dames, and this one is a Dragon Lady. Don't take my word for it; look at the embroidery on the jacket!

They make a good Power Couple.

Very good!

I have that character he will appear in my Nippon Project soon as a Chinese Ghosthunter.

 

I like what you did there, and the Dragon Lady looks dangerous!

Oh, I'm looking forward to that Ghosthunter! 

...and yes. From the minute she walked into my to-do list, I could see that dame was Trouble. Her patience with fools was shorter than her skirt, and barely hidden better than the stiletto that said she meant business.

I love both of these - those pulp figures are too much fun!  Xiang Lung looks like the insidious Dr. Fu Manchu to me, the product of too much lurid pulp literature in the days of my youth..

TOO MUCH lurid pulp? No such thing, soldier! :lol: 
(It's certainly possible to overdose on pulp-era bigotry and bad prose, but two-fisted action and Weird Tales schemes an sich? I dunno!)

      Quick paint spread throughout the day.

      I painted this dude up as my technomancer for our Starfinder campaign. The idea is his coat is very tech-ey. I used a Bones Chronoscope miniature and modded in some antenna. Also slightly purple skin, cause this is a Lashunta.

      I had a bad day and decided to do some painting in between the terrain stuff.
      I did quick red /brown/blue liner primer coats at 920 and put stuff aside. Then did another 15-20 minutes ruddy leather on belts and boots, intense brown and oiled leather on coat, creamy ivory on shirt, red shadow and carnage red lightened with Ivory and medium. Corporea black for pants.

      Hello all, want to share the last minis I've painted: Alice and White rabbit.
      I was inspired by the color choice of the 50's Disney animated movie, so blonde air, azure dress and white apron for Alice; no more space for other colors but the jade-green vial, and the brown boots.
      Red, blue and yellow is my color choice for the White rabbit; instead of white, I opted for a more natural "leprous" looks for the fur.
      I keep my search for the "add more contrast quest"... little by little I think I'm achieving it 
      Quite Happy of the result 
      Let me know what you girls and guys think about them.
       


      As always every advice and critics is more than welcome.
      Thanks for watching.

      So after painting a bunch of fantasy adventurers, I decided I needed a bit of a change of pace.  Enter my finds of some IMEF infantrymen and a mech from something I'm not familiar with (all Reaper minis).. and combine that with my extensive experience with military model kits.  What you get is this project to paint the IMEF guys in colors inspired by the Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces; one is finished and the others are in progress.
       
      The mech is being painted up in camo inspired by Japanese army tank camo colors to make it kind of a matching set.  In the last pic you can also see my Victorian adventuress from the Raj, if you want to call it that.
