My pulp project set in Western Canada in the 1930s needs some baddies, and I found the perfect pair in two of Bob Murch's Pulp Figures sculpts, from his "Mad Trappers of Rat River" set from the Yukon Peril range.
On the left, Phil Turcotte was never the same when he got home from Passchendaele, and doesn't say much except "Get off my land!" On the right, Sven "The Hatchet" Olsen shows up in the trading post once every three months with a sack of furs and a baleful stare. According to local legend, he once killed a man in Pincher Creek for suggesting he needed a bath and a haircut.
As always with Bob's figures, these were a delight to paint. As I see it, besides being ornery, smelly, armed and barking mad, they will have some special abilities, like possibly being able to turn into wolves or bears, which is why the German zeppelin might be looking for specimens. I am sure there will be wild doings afoot.
I discovered this white texture gel at a local art supply shop, which being white, takes paint and Woodlands Scenics snow quite well, for a pleasing final effect.
They look like trouble.
