Pulp Figures: Released, painted Melanesians
« on: January 14, 2011, 09:45:02 AM »
These look particularly good, I think, but I have no current use for them:



I wonder if Bob Murch has a new studio painter or photographer. Like the Delancy street minis these are just vibrant.

The painting's superb, not as chalky as the old stuff, maybe the painter's changed his process.  :-*

Looking good. The problem now with Pulp Figures range is that it has too many nice figures… I can’t keep up with Bob’s outtake ;D

Could these be used as Maori with the addition of tattoo's or do the Maori look quite a bit different?

I think they would work, at least if you take a look on these modern versions of Maori :)

They look very Melanesian to me (afro-style hair, bones in their noses, beards, their outfits), but if you painted them with lighter skin and tattoos I think they could count as 'near enough.'

I can hear the haka in the background...

I really like the patterns on the sarongs but I will echo others on the fact that I also have no current use for these models.  Too bad really, as these figs are quite nice.
