Original Sculpt, Plug-ugly Pulp Crook, feat. Shipping Container (80036)

Recommended Posts

Awesome!

For rust I recommend the Vallejo Special Effect sets.

Comes with chipping medium.

 

Paint original color, paint rust, apply chipping medium.

When all is dry, use a wet toothbrush and chip away.

Gives awesome rust effects.

I'mma give that a shot. Currently, I've been using the Army Painter rust effect, sometimes combined with GW Typhus Corrosion as a base, but I haven't tried chipping yet. Know of a good source for those in the U.S.?

Thank you all for the kind words and rust recommendations!

Very convincing sculpt! And the container is wonderful - love me some terrain!

It's a great container, and opens to hold dice or minis. As for Mugsy there, you can just hear the voice, can't you?! :lol:

Great work! Makes me wanna break out my old Goon comics.

Absolutely a strong inspiration. Good eye. The Goon is a lot more competent than this palooka, but they have similar skillsets (crime, punching, getting punched).

I'm Dutch so I buy it in The Netherlands or Germany.

Mine is from Vallejo, but there may be others who sell chipping medium

Ok, I'll see what I can dig up.

Off topic, but I cannot recommend Eric Powell’s “Hillbilly” enough. Stunning and I mean STUNNING art and incredible writing.

Ooo! I'll have to look into it...getting a gritty Silver John/Harrow County vibe. And I'm great fans of both of those, so this is an easy sell.

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

      Fishfolk Fisherman and Fishfolk Fishwife from Crooked Dice. The fisherman, in oilskins and sou'wester, is a perfect blend of the Gorton's mascot and his product. The bug-eyed fishwife with cleaver was a delight to paint, especially the Atlantic salmon.  

       
      A shot of some of the Waite Fish Packing Concern's employees, featuring some old friends from RatTrap and BlackCat:

       
      The Real Housewives of Innsmouth (including a repurposed Bonnie, 50293, with improvements upon her previous appearance):
       

       
      and one of just the fellas:
       

       
      Golly gee willikers I love painting fishmen. Special credit also to the Dreadmere Fishing Boat, 44032, the perfect touch for the setting.

      My love for pulp, and particularly pulp aviators and aviatrices, is well-known. So this cheesecake propaganda pinup poster Sophie had to be. I was very glad indeed to see it back in production. Love everything about this sculpt from hair to boots. But you didn't come here to read; you came for the pictures!

      Morale-boosting appearances for different branches

       
      Plus one for the Kaiju Corps...

       
      and a couple for the brainy boys in the white coats. (Hey, if we're already surfing bombs, might as well go full Strangelove.)

       
      Guest appearances by 80070 and some Artizan Thrilling Tales figs, 50075, some Murch Pulp sailors,  a Nolzur's water elemental, a Pacific Rim action figure, and a repurposed plastic egg. I also replaced Sophie's wings with some smaller wings I had lying around; I have a plan for those larger wings and a larger devil.
       
      Thanks for checking in!

      Now THIS is a Pulp Hero! An incredibly burly, fiercely-mustached Sikh with a chain-fed brass-jacketed machine gun. NorthStar UK lists him as Gagan Kayal; the American outlet Brigade Games lists him as Mohan Singh in their "Lord Curr's Company" set. Either way, a powerhouse with incredible style and devastating firepower. I roughed up the barrel of the gun with some Typhus Corrosion before painting it; the original sculpt is smoother. 



      His arm hair is sculpted on, and after that, I'd be remiss not to give him some good chest and shoulder hair.

      The time period is fairly ambiguous to one who, like me, is not a firearms historian, so the good Mr. Kayal can work from the turn of the previous century...

       
      to the middle of said century.


      Special guest appearances by 50029, British Colonial Riflemen, 50193, Thuggee Cultist, and 50221, Nazi Zombie Officer (and his Artizan co-workers).

      I have been painting these as long as the others, but have lots of photo cropping.
      Currently painting the sacrificial victim from the Islanders set of Children of the Field... it was separate from the rest of my minis from that kickstarter.
      And also a (n unofficial) time lord companion for a variety of "normal" female minis.
