Steampunk Victoria

I (for once) had some time between projects, so I've taken the chance to put some paint on a Steampunk Queen Victoria (from the Wargames Illustrated Giants in Minature limited range) that I picked up at Targe in Kirriemuir last November.

I found this quite a fiddly figure to paint for some reason, despite the prominence of the black dress. Also her face (I always have trouble with painting faces!) has fallen to my ill practised inconsistencies. Should be OK on the table though (most my painting doesn't bear close scrutiny anyway!)

There is something about the armament that makes me think of a Steampunk Ghostbuster. Now there's a game!!! Maybe if they did the backpack & gun as separate pieces?...

Surely Nikola Tesla and Arthur Conan Doyle would also be in the team!

Final Cultists

Last 2 cultists for my IHMN company.
The first is from RAFM's Cultist set in their Cthulhu line. He is obviously inspired by the famous picture of Aleister Crowley. The body ratio seems to be a bit out (unless Crowley had especially short legs) but the combination of a long robe and a stone plinth (which I suspect was added onto the sculpt to make up for the short legs) brings him up to average height and looking OK.

The second figure is Ibrahim Namin from Harlequin's Doctor Who range (from the 4th Doctor story "Pyramids of Mars").

I have also quickly painted up a Grendel Summoning Circle for some occult rituals (from their Magicians Accessories set).

Once I've got the stats set up for the additional figures I'll get a group show done and profile list.
