NorthStar's Gagan Kayal AKA Mohan Singh--Pulp Sikh with Machine Gun

Recommended Posts

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.

Fun sculpt. He looks like he's ready to shoot whoever woke him up early.

Wonderful mini - and nice job in the skin. He looks like he could use that gun as a bludgeons weapon if he runs out of ammo....

To be sure. A strong man with strong opinions about a strong cup of tea in the morning.

Thank you! And to be sure. You get hit with that monster barrel, you stay hit. Two-fisted AND bare-chested men in pulp settings = do not engage at close range.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      A truly superb journalist sculpt from Cold War Miniatures, this is Earthling Gail (a retro Dale-from-Flash-Gordon homage). Crisp pulp-era fashion sense and a great air of determination.  Guest-starring RatTrap's Bridget O'Rourke and Grenadier's Vile Villain (Caspar Gutman).  Afflict the comfortable, comfort the afflicted, spell it RIGHT, and get a SOURCE!



      And the intrepid reporters and editor at the Arkham Advertiser:

      Sorry for the late yell, been the busiest month of life...ever!
       
      TooFatLardies collaboration - last few hours of my KS for British Home Front. They're working on a FREE supplement with rules and scenarios for all the minis, not just for the women, rules that will fit with your male and existing figures too for Chain of Command. But of course there are many games and eras you can use em in.
       
      As well as women there's hero dogs, pigeons and other critters!
       
      Bad Squiddo is just me and I've been working my arrrrse off getting this off the ground, so even a cheeky peek and share would be amazing. And thank you everyone who has backed so far, we've made some really incredible things happen.
