Bombshell's Liberty 2020 as Capitan Mexica

Recommended Posts

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!

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:

Awesome!

Love the meso-american style shield

Thanks! Took it from a feather-suited warrior and repainted it. The red-white-green color scheme needed a cultural signifier that she wasn't a Christmas commando.

Fantastic pulpy goodness. Love the shield, her skin, and the make-up.

Thank you! Probably the best skin highlighting I've done so far.

      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!

      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.

      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!

      This is a figure that I painted during a 'Sophie says' at Reapercon last year.  It was a fairly decent paint job that didn't take too much time to clean up, so I did. 
      I'll be using him as a flunky for various different gangs/crews/whatever. 
      Just look at his face; he very obviously has no idea what he's gotten himself wrapped up in.

      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.

      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!

      I've been having fun lately painting base discs up as planets and moons. Hard to have too many of those for space pulp backdrops.

      Also! here's Princess Auriate, from Bombshell's Babes line. The elaborate headdress and boots, plus the saber, make her a perfect fit with her imperial sisters Azeemah and Khoshta. 


       
      Turnaround, but not in great focus, sorry. 
       
      Here are the sisters together:

       

       
      An Imperial Princess lives a life of extreme luxury, but not one of ease. She must be prepared to prove her superiority over any subordinate humanoid (trivial) or savage beast (depends on the beast).
      This is a challenge: a poisonous Desert Worm. It's also venomous!
       
      Noblesse oblige!
