It was getting along for sundown when the turtle moseyed into town.

Now, round these parts, we don't ask questions about a man's past. But every man's got a past, and sometimes the past got a long shadow.
(Special guest appearances by Bombshell's Raferu-san and some modified Troglodytes.)
I will glue a grommet top hat to anything, anything.
Something about the poncho made me think of old Spaghetti westerns, and things snowballed from there.
Hope you enjoy!
This in The Girl from Bombshell Miniatures and was one of my entries in the Painter's category at ReaperCon. I started painting her a couple of years ago, mainly to test the peachy color of the cloth. I decided to quickly finish her for ReaperCon as I wanted to have a Bombshell entry. She was not the figure chosen for judging in the main contest but she did receive a silver medal (dog tag) in Bombshell's manufacturer awards.
This little guy was a freebie from Bombshell Miniatures given out at Reapercon 2019. He is also available on their website. I put him on a jungle base from Microarts. Tried for some dark blue/grey coloration, wasn't happy with it, tried some green washes, but he kept turning blue again. Brushed a little green metallic on and he turned silver, did the green wash again with a different brand. Decided I had messed around with it long enough.
In the background is a 3-d printed stone bridge my husband made for me. Tabletop drybrush in shades of brown over a black base coat.
Now these are some absolutely fantastic sculpts. The bloodthirsty fanaticism really shows in every line and detail. 02681, Abram Duskwalker, is the perfect Solomon Kane / Witchfinder Pursuivant / Inquisitor-general / Puritan regicide sculpt. Toned down his sword a bit; the brass knuckles seemed a bit much (though perhaps I have run into another "Tiffany paradox" here; I'm not a weapons historian). Lots of detail, all delightfully accessible and easy to paint.
Mira the Inquisitor, from Bombshell's Babes line, is every bit his counterpart. Decided to go with a red color scheme, which confers the added side-benefit of making her a Jacobean-era Carmen Sandiego.
But we all know what you came here for: Hammer horror-style ACTION SHOTS!
