Latest commission work

When I sent Geoff the Zulu Wars figures I let him know that I'd be interested in painting up small groups of figures if he wanted me too. He replied that he did indeed have some figures that he'd like to see painted, and sent me through 30 odd to work on. This is the first group - pulp adventurers from the Copplestone Castings range. These are really nice figures to paint, and I hope he is happy with the result.
The full group.
The archaeologists.
'I hope the opposition don't include mummies...'
Some splendidly adventuresome chaps.
I did take some inspiration for the colours from the Copplestone website, but there are some variations of my own in there.
Time to start on the next group which are some Perry Samurai era villagers. I'd earlier considered the possibility of a small skirmish force for Ronin, so depending on how much I enjoy painting these figures I might head down that route in the near future.
I'm also slowly painting up a secret project which is going to be a gift for a friend. I managed to do quite a bit of work on this in the last two weeks, which is why the blog has been so quiet - can't post piccies or it won't be a secret anymore! Hopefully some Samurai will be ready by next week.

  2. Great work on the pulpy figs! I recently began looking at Bob Murch's pulp figures and had completely forgotten that Copplestone made some too. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. Pulp Figures are great. Don't forget the Artizan Thrilling Tales collection too. The Pulp gamer has some fantastic figures to choose from.

  4. Excellent work! A very characterful collection. Can't wait to see what you do with the Samurai. I highly recommend Ronin, it's a great skirmish game.

    1. Thanks Paul - I'm wavering... but Lion Rampant Wars of the Roses might just get in first.
