Back in April (gosh, where did the time go?) I mentioned here that I was adding some more figures to my Pulp interwar project set in Western Canada, which I've dubbed The Rockies Ablaze.
Specifically, I wanted some figures to represent British/Commonwealth troops in winter dress, suitable for the late 1930s. The closest I've come are a line of figures from Gorgon Studios, which seem designed for the Norway 1940 campaign. I found Gorgon to be easy to deal with, the figures came promptly, and only required minimal cleaning up of flash.
I have about half of them on the workbench, competing with orcs and warg riders and a few other odds and ends, and am excited enough by my spasmodic progress to want to show them off.
The figures are easy to paint and have enough detail and character that they'll fit in well with the primarily Pulp Figures casts by Bob Murch. I'll be putting them on winter bases, and they'll join my Mounties and sundry odd pulp characters in hunting for mad trappers, werewolves, bears and zeppelin troops.
Oh, and did I mention that there is an airship being assembled, with some kitbashing from parts of a 1/72nd scale B17 model?
Exciting times here at the Mad Padre's Painting Chapel.
Stay vigilant, chaps.
