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!)

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.

      I have now completed a squad of these minis. I just really like the style of the power armour for each type of soldier. Nearly all the parts are Reaper and come on the sprues for the actual minis. However I did head swap the alien chap, taking a head from a space soldier from Bones 4. And the older gentleman ("everything on this damn Battlefield beeps...") has a head from Victrix Limited, who make ancient and dark age figures. 
      Paint scheme was ultra simple, a primer layer with Vallejo Early Green, a wash with GW camoshade, and black templar contrast paint for the guns. Scale 75 Viking Gold for the visors. I am playing around with free hand, for the numbers and decoration, am not very good at it but can always paint the areas white again.

      I haven't painted a scifi mini for about 20 years, with the exception of the Zombicide Invaders game.
      I really liked the look of the Bulldog and Corsair power armour from Chronoscope, and because I can't help myself did both of them as female conversions.
      I did an ultra simple scheme for the armour (Vallejo "Earth Green - early") and then a GW camo shade wash. The heads are from Statuesque miniatures. The Bulldog pilot has Scale 75 African shadow as a base coat, highlighted up with Scale 75 Iroko (yellow/cream) and a final highlight of just Iroko. The textured base for the Bulldog is wall paper. 
      There is going to be a Scifi version of Frostgrave in the new year and am probably angling for that.

      This one I painted a few years ago.
      I'm pretty happy with the stones on the base.
       
      I wouldn't trust her when I got sick though.

      Finished up Tess McFadden to give me the minimum I need to form a Zona Alfa crew.
      She is also sculpted by Kev White who also did the Hasslefree sculpts, so they mix well together.
       
      So my Karolina's Angels crew is:
      Hasslefree Widow as Luce Loo
      Hesslefree Harlequin as Cammy D.
      Hasslefree Summer as Dru
      Tess McFadden as Demmy Mohr
       
      Wasn't planning to post Tess in show off since she is very similar to my previous Mini, but since it's a Reaper...
       
      Thanks for looking.
       

       

      Zona Alfa Crew L-R, Reaper's Tess, Hasslefree's Harlequin, Hasslefree's Widow
