After realising that I'd not post anything of my own lately, because I'm too busy(which I am)but simply a severe bought of CBA.
So here's a work bench thread to keep me motivated and to show the odd bit as I plod a long.

Cheers  Helen,

I suppose it'd make more sense ,if I made more sense. So here we go.

The Chinese figures are a combination of musings. whole league (foreground) is a combination of three real people and a sketch from 'Fram' ,The Chinese cannon fodder are inspired by Lon's back of beyond thread. Then all wrapped up in a out line for a Pulp Alley supplement.
The Mummy us for a Pulp sarcophagus. As my six year old thought it'd be funny if the mummy did an Egyptian 'Dab' as it stood up.

The Green man alter is a cancellation ( found the sculpt a little uncomfortable for gaming in his church hall.So I made him something less English and more American .So he's a happy bunny) I'm just plodding along adding left over clay to finish it off . As it seemed a shame to waste the work this far on.
The Matilda tank turret is a Blitzkrieg product. (I think.) 1st corps have me making crews for English and Germans Simon sent this and a mk iv turret to scale the crews on. I've a four piece English crew done so far.
The nurses are for Sally 4th. As is the Golden Monkey set.
It's an interesting range figures that nod at characters not the Actors.(in the case of the tales of the golden monkey,that's not a bad thing.) rather than doing  'Not' figures.
Once you take a step back its an idea that works. How many actors have played, Sherlock Holmes?,or Batman,or Buck Rodgers,and so on. Always the same character just different faces.(plus there's no stepping on toes )
Don't get me wrong I'm dropping real people in amongst the characters. The Casablanca nods have Johnny Vegas hidden in they're ranks.

Mark.

It's been a while since I've had anything that isn't Hush,Hush.
Here's one I can mention. Three bespoke role-play items that had to be multifunctional,and not commercially available.

A flat bottomed row boat with seating option and capable of holding figure. A wagon and a cart that can represent both functional and destroyed.

The boat looks especially good, and a nice tatty paint job or should I say a nice paint job to make it look tatty. :)
