Grizzly "Sand" Castle

Here's an Old West rifleman scanning the horizon for varmints.

Small Gargoyle

I am a gargoyle--here I lurk
Barely suppressing a basilisk smirk
At the visiting ghost hunters
And their silly butterfly nets

Bigfoot

In my mind, this sasquatch is the alien robotic Bigfoot from The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. I think he looks pretty good, and I even managed eyes with pupils.

Cliff Horse

Of the half-dozen or so horses I've painted so far, I think this one has the most natural colouring. Giddyup!

The Way I Consume Eggo Waffles

Today I had a couple of Eggo waffles for breakfast. As is my usual method, I ate each waffle by nibbling off the rounded edges, leaving behind a square grid of waffle cells. I then ate a row of squares from each edge, leaving a smaller square, and so on and so on until I swallowed the last cell.

Does anyone else eat their waffles this way?

Night of the Nightstick

Here's a policeman who looks like he came straight out of a 1930s Warner Brothers gangster flick. He even looks a little like Ward Bond.

Barnabas Thugg

I see this fellow as a surly, skinflint merchant.

Villainous Vixen

With a bad attitude and abhorrent beliefs, she's the kind of villain you love to defeat. If only beating back fascism was as easy in the real world.

If This Be Doomsday

Within the Great Game, many rolls of the dice
The end of the world in a single device
Why not take a chance with the fate of the Earth
Surely the Turtle is tired of our girth
Better the bang than the depressing whimper
Let's die in the fire of a nuclear winter

Theda Lane

What started as yet another attempt to paint 28mm scale eyes has turned into sunglasses once again. Ah well, at least there's a hint of lip colour this time. 

Like Tim Chan, Theda Lane is one of the Student Investigators from Pulp Figures. What strange mystery is she about to solve?

Leaping into Action

This Pulp Figures miniature is posed quite dynamically, and I'm pretty happy with my paint job, though my photo hasn't captured it very well. The sculpt is clearly inspired by the Spirit and the Shadow, and so I feel this character's name should evoke those inspirations. Spirit Shadow? Shadow Spirit? Shazure Sprite?

Sgt. Prestown and Bark

I've been painting many minis lately, and Canada Day seems the right time to show off Sgt Prestown of the Yukon and his trusty Husky, Bark - so named for the sound and the skin of trees, of which there are many in the Yukon. It's a pun! 

This miniature set was created by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures, a Canadian company based in Kelowna, BC. Bonus points!
