Statuesque Miniatures--Pulp Alley, Apophis, Shadow of Chaos

Recommended Posts

Statuesque's Pulp Alley line is going away forever, but when I saw this figure I knew it was non-negotiable! There's a recurring character in my Weird West games, a yuan-ti pureblood and snake cultist called Doctor Apophis. I had been using the Deadlands Noir Houngan mini for this, but hoo boy.

The serpentine features, from the smoothed-out ears to the wide-set eyes and fangs! The precision-incised hieroglyphs!

"He...he says he is very pleased to meet you and looks forward to working with you, O Farouk!"

Great job!

I have a feeling Aziz and Farouk will be in for a surprise, business will not go as expected!

 

A little note:

I see that large toy snake.

If you're up to it, those can easily be repainted, I did that with my Tanith's Awakening piece, both the Anaconda and the Python embedded into the wall are repainted toys.

Wash them first, then prime in Reaper Brown ( or other) Liner and paint away.

 

Here is the pattern of an Egyptian Cobra, it might suit your theme:

Wonderful!  Nice to see that Farouk and Aziz have survived to this point.  ;-)

Thanks! They do lead lives of thrilling adventure, which is bad for long-term survival.
 I imagine they make a point to recruit sedentary, easily winded Egyptologists for their schemes. You don't have to outrun the eldritch monstrosity; you just need to outrun your slowest colleagues!

      I got this one as an STL file from Titan Forge, printed her on my Elegoo Mars.
      Background is blue foam, I used the GreenstuffWorld Egyptian Roller Pin on that.
      The two Canopy Jars are from Reaper's Nefsokhar Weapon Pack.
      Base is from a BOGW.
       
      She's part of my Shifting Sands Project.
      Meet Zafira, Raider of Tombs and Pyramids.

      So for my Shifting Sands Project I would like a photobackdrop like I did for my Lost World.
      Sort of a little diorama/terrain piece on its own but also a nice backdrop.
       
      I'll present to you:
       
      The Temple of Apophis ( or Apep) the Forbidden God.
      Nobody in his right mind would worship the Suneater, or would they?
       
      Start and some shuffling around with pieces to get ideas.
      I already have some stuff in mind, still possible to change/add stuff.
       
      Printing the Artisan Guild Snake Statues that go with that altar as we speak.
      Need more of those braziers, and I will print up some Egyptian torches, maybe columns etc...
       
      Now! KNEEL before Apophis!!!

      For my Shifting Sands Project I wanted a Casket of Souls / Altar of the Damned.
       
      I scratchbuilt the altar from foam with the help of a Greenstuffworld rollerpin I gave it an Egyptian look.
       
      The bones/skulls are from the Greenstuffworld Crunchplates
       
      Then I added:
       
      The Caster:

      Finished the Bones Version of the Avatar of Thoth.
      Sculptes a bit of ruins with a Greenstuffworld Rollerpin.
       
      Thoth is often depicted as an Ibis, I choose the Red Ibis as inspiration.

      This is Reaper's 14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric.
       
      Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back.
       
      CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PAINTED FIGURE FATIMA, NEFSOKAR CLERIC.
       
      There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated.
       
      The images are hosted on Instagram so you can post comments there too if you like.
