Bombshell minis : Dr Helen Salinger & Artie the Zombie Hunter


Recommended Posts

A request for more modern female minis, Dr Helen Salinger first,  because I found her first.

I will be painting her as Cosima from Orphan Black.

Mostly base coats today, though I did a bit more on the coat. Legs are rubbing off so I may need to re prime. Skin was a weird mix of new copper, sun yellow and heavy _(I forget the Vallejo name) skin.

      The Frost Salamander from Nolzur's has a wonderful chunky head and heavy-jawed face, and that won me over. It also has six legs, so not your average Earthly amphibian. Good thing there's always room for planetary monsters! And it's a great canvas for patterns; salamanders are often brightly spotted or striped. Let's make him a denizen of the steaming swamps of Retro-Venus!
       

       

       

       
       
      More angles:
       
      Bombshell makes some amazing sci-fi ladies and this is one such! I took some liberties with my interpretation as a Venerian Amazon--the sculpt indicates that Wanda here is wearing leggings or tight pants rather than the singlet I painted, but her headgear, belt, and boots fit very nicely with Hydra's Valkeeri sculpts. 
       

       


      More angles: 
       
      Let's put the two together!

       
      Why does a huge predator need vivid warning coloration? Well, on Retro-Venus, there's always another, bigger predator.
       

       
      I *do* love putting bright colors on weird beasties. Hope you enjoy!

      Once more we return to the hallowed halls of Miskatonic University, this time to the research laboratories, where keen and possibly unhinged minds push the boundaries of interdisciplinary knowledge! 

      Helen Salinger here (dark hair, clipboard) is one of the keenest. Whether it's fauna mutated by exposure to colors out of space, or crystals growing at hypergeometrical angles, she's on the job.

       
      (Colleagues have been seen before under the Miskatonic tag, but I gave them a touch-up recently so these are Better Pictures.)

       
      Jessica in the long coat is from Brigade Games, while the tousled fellow with the tentacled horror is from Crooked Dice. The commanding lady in the pink skirt is from Black Cat.
       

       

       
      Bonus! Updated pics of Laura Pringle, 50052; 

       
      and chemists Friedman (50046) and Froschmeister (50061), with updated chemiluminescent glows. (Glowing means science, and the glowyier something is, the more science it is, as we all know).

       
      Here's our brave Science Department, ever progressing towards truth (madness). Sometimes to make an omelette you have to TRANSGRESS a few BOUNDARIES! You'll show them, you'll show the ALL!

      Also here: a Zombiesmith scientist, Reaper's Mad Scientist 59014, and Psychologist 80066.

      I did this quickly tonight while getting garbage ready to go out tomorrow.
       
      One side of the spit came undone and needs to bebgkued. There's a tab so it is steady. Thr big fire under the rabbit popped off the wood, allowing me to use inks on thr clear plastic. It fits snug.

      The Andromedan Dominion controls many cubic parsecs of the local Outer Spiral Arm, decadent hegemons given to backstabbing intrigues, convoluted politics and railgun diplomacy. Controlling the fractious populations of several suns means there's always a need for footsoldiers! 

      40927 here is a junior cadet, ready for her first off-world assignment. Yes, she's effectively a child soldier; that's the sort of thing you get from decadent hegemonies! It's a good way of cleaning up lines of succession, if nothing else. Notice the ceremonial hairpiece and digitigrade stance of the ruling caste. 

       
      The plasma jezzail is as much a cultural signifier as a weapon (and it is for sure an effective weapon). 

       
      It's time to hunt some political dissidents! Success will be rewarded with plumes of glory and silken garments of rank. Failure will be discreetly covered up by the clan matriarch.

       
      More pics: B
       
      This (Bombshell's Jamad) is the sort of rank our Huntress could aspire to: 

       
      a statuesque Battle-Chief (or Cultural Magistrate, depending on how you translate the subtilities of the language). Robed with ceremonial silks and armed with jezzail, pistol, and glaive, she has broad authority over a planetary sector and considerable influence within her clan. 

       

       
      The menfolk also have some value in Andromedan culture; an armored Dragoon (Bombshell Exile) wields heavy weaponry developed by a vassal species. Illyrian work, by the looks of it. 

       
      The heavy armor indicates he has seen several successful skirmishes, and is a valuable fighter to protect. worth the investment. 
      He 
       
      He is also authorized to grow whiskers--a sign of clan rank!

      If they all play their cards right, they might even get an audience with Her Sovereignty Messalina XVI Herself!
