Lots of pics here, a story's worth. Turnaround pics in spoiler areas.
You should imagine Ennio Morricone playing the soundtrack, slow-paced to start with. Diegetic horse noises, hooves plodding. Scraping, dragging sound.
A glow of a cigarillo and a long inhale as we slowly zoom in on the horse's master.
The smoke exhales out of his nostrils, and the camera pans down to show it jetting from multiple holes in the Revenant's torso as well.
The rendezvous at hand, the Revenant knocks on the coffin once or twice. It is the only sound besides the horse breathing.
Panning the camera around to the other side of the tree we see a couple boys from the Red Hand posse.
"Two against one, fella. You might be too stubborn to die, but you ain't gotten any better at counting."
He retreats. Hoofbeats recede behind the mesa.
(music gets tenser, speeds up)
"Boss! Good to have you back."
"Thought we'd lost you! Now let's get back to San Cascarion and drain those vatos dry!"
Other, different hoofbeats make the Red Hand thugs stop celebrating. They look around,
This, they did not expect.
(Morricone music just goes bananas here)
[fight choreography ensues, guns shot and whipped out of undead hands, etc,]
Camera zooms in on the Revenant again holding a cigarillo to withered lips. He holds up first one cracked and flaking finger, then another, then a third and finally a fourth. The barest hint of a smile crinkles his mummified cheek. Counts just fine. Roll credits.
Ooowee these were fun to do! The Revenant, an undead Man with No Name, is from Artizan, as are Brothers Thomas and Martin and Fra Benedict, the Holy Inquisitors 3-pack. I used a pin vise to drill a few extra holes in the Revenant.
The bad hombres in red and the Nosferatu are from Dracula's America, the Red Hand coven 3-pack.
Horses are from Nolzur's Adventurer's Campsite. They've been on my Shelf of Shame for too long.
The Coffin and Skeleton are Reaper, 77633. The Tree of Despair and the signpost from Western Sophie make an appearance as well.
Here's Part 1, from a WHILE back.
Hope you enjoy!
Karla, Anime Heroine, is a beautiful sculpt with a great nurse hat. The miniskirt, while delightful, could be more pulp-era appropriate, so I sculpted a hemline extension. I also replaced a handgun with a syringe, and then gave her a couple of backup syringes and converted her other firearm to a needle gun. She is here to cure what ails you!
And with her colleagues, Anne Foster (50258) and Dr. Welby (50257):
Stay healthy, folks, and get your shots!
Bombshell just came out with a resin version of their dieselpunk pinup/supersoldier, Liberty. She's a great dynamic sculpt, zaftig and muscular with it. Now, we all know this is evoking some 'what if Haley Attewell became Captain America' vibes, but I've already painted up our red-white-and-blue hero before, as well as an Agent Carter type and even a Captain Canada. So, I might as well continue down the North American continent. Presenting: Capitan Mexica!
Click for the rest of the turnaround:
Alas, the resin gun she came with was fragile and I had to kitbash on a sturdier one. Her shield is taken from an Aztec warrior from this series.
Not so much Nazi-punching to do, but she has plenty of threats to contend with that would imperil the good folk of Mexico:
...some stranger than others!
And some downright bizarre:
Here she is with her northern counterparts:
Guest appearances by: Cactus Joe, 50318; Lobo Sanchez, 50050; Diamond Sue Dawson, 50111; El Diablo, 50035; Incredible Woman, 50212; and John Bishop, 50068.
Brothers Roberto (03561) and Louis IV (02087) are excellent sculpts suitable for multiple time periods. I've painted a couple of Nuns With Guns and a couple of priests, but not a bishop or a cardinal!
"Your Exellency, I apologize for the short notice. It's worse than we had thought."
"You are forgiven, Bishop. Is it the old Priory at St. Wulfstan's?"
"Indeed. The Creature has at last gotten loose from the bindings put down in 947 and broken through the 16th-century salt rings."
"God in Heaven. I had prayed those wards would outlast me. We knew this day would come."
"Mercifully, we have one of our best men on the scene. God willing he can contain the beast until the rest of the team arrives."
Father Sweeny, again from Artizan's 'Thrilling Tales' line, had better be a man of strong faith and iron will.
The Beast, ornery after centuries of durance :
Hold the line...
(Guest appearances by Fr. Thomas, Sr. Maria, Order of St. George Nun, and Fra Ximenez from Black Cat.)
