Miskatonic Faculty: Ervin Friedman, Marine Biology, and NorthStar Professor

Recommended Posts

A return to the hallowed, mouldering halls of Miskatonic University, this time to check in on the professors of Marine Science and Oriental Studies!
Here's 50046, Dr. Ervin Friedman. A classic mad scientist sculpt; love the dynamic "Eureka!/I'll show them, I'll show them ALL!" pose. Friedman looks like a chemist, but I had the tank from 77493, Brain-in-a-Jar and some little fish from a craft store lying around and made another fishtank

I imagine he gets on well with his colleague Dr. Froschmeister.

Next up, the Professor from NorthStar's "In Her Majesty's Name" line. An academic in the humanities, an eccentric genius with very good fashion sense. I will fix that smoking jacket one day, but it's tabletop ready for now. He's got a very expressive pose and I can just imagine him dilating on abstruse facets of the art traditions of forgotten empires and smell the pipe-tobacco and old leather.

I love it, and don't you dare chance that jacket!

It suits him!

 

Love the fishtank, creative thinking!

Wonderful, though I detect a bit of rivalry between the two scientists. Is one up for tenure, perhaps?

Dr. Friedman is wonderful -but his fish tanks steal the sceen.... And the professor's smoking jacket... perfect! And I really like the chalkboard...

Thank you! The quilted squares on the jacket look better at some distance; should have been more patient but not bad for a first attempt. 
I was pretty stoked about the fishtank--love using old bitz for set dressing. 
Chalkboard was one of my first props from scratch--just matchsticks, pins, and a rectangle of plastic. The good faculty have gotten plenty of use out of it!

A clash of personalities? In academia? Perish forbid! :lol: 
Office politics can be especially cutthroat at Miskatonic, where one party might render your corpse into essential saltes and the other induce atavistic reversion into some kind of horrible fishman. You don't even want to think about the annual performance reviews.

      The new student assistant at Miskatonic's Orne Library! Already Ms Dinklage (Hasslefree's "Louise") has proven to be adept at scholarship and library science, and not easily frightened (this latter being a VERY useful job skill at Ol' Misk). When asked about her tremendous sang-froid she was evasive, mentioning 'friends from [her] summer job' and 'travels in dark corners of the earth.'  


      With some of her fellow-students:


      And with others on the library faculty:

      I've had this one in the works for a while. She's a little more cheerful and Art Noveau than most of the rest of my Miskatonic staff, but that's okay! Misk.U. cultivates eccentrics of all types. She seems to be handling the job just fine. And those pointed ears indicate she's already survived a brush with chaos, or perhaps has a little bit of eldritch in her. 
       

       

       

       

       
      Her colleagues are a Stonehaven halfling librarian and a Black Cat librarian/cultist. Gave them both a minor touch-up for this shoot.

      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:

      My FLGS had a Brain-in-a-Jar, 77493, some months back, and of COURSE it came home with me. But then I hit a wall. The brain was enormous, far too large to fit inside a humanoid's head unless they were of giant size. Then, an epiphany! Inspired by this old pulp illustration and Wells's Selenites. 


      I also had an old grab-bag Pickled Punk from Paizo: a wretched, foetal thing in a broken jar. So, discarding the jar component of both minis, I did some minor brain surgery and put together this tripod-borne Martian, inerrant in its calculations, an intellect vast and cool and unsympathetic, its distended cranium overshadowing its feeble frame:

      From the Villains 3 pack from Crooked Dice: a mad scientist's mad scientist. Shock of hair, beady spectacles, manic grin, pet baby shoggoth.  I'd long lamented the fact that none of my mad scientists were specifically mad zoologists, but NO LONGER. 
      Again, kudos to @lexomatic and @paintybeard for the tips.
