Pulp Steam Launch

Pulp Steam Launch

Postby Amalric » 13 May 2009

Lady Wigglesome hired the tall stranger because he was the only one who would brave the River of Doom. His gruff manner bothered her, but something deep inside her told her she could trust him. She just had to find Jane. How could her best friend from boarding school have been so foolish to venture inland.

He stood warily in the bow of the launch. All his senses told him something was amiss.

The Jungle Girl lept into the boat, ready to strike but something stirred in her memory.

This is the resin steam launch from Brigade games. A nice kit I put together stock, except for replacing the canopy poles with brass tubing and adding a pipe to the boiler. The females are by Foundry I believe, while the Hunter is the excellent RLBPS Allan Quartermain figure.
Image
I didn't attach the canopy, so I could have access to the interior.

Now to go T-Rex hunting!
Enjoy.

Ooh, nice. The canopy and the metal parts are standouts. The Alan Q. fig turned out a bit of a self-portrait, didn't he?

Like this one Tom, how does the boat scale to 20mm (thinking about a steam powered coaster for my Riffi) ;)

Good story too - can we skim ahead to the steamy threesome :P

Richard, I hadn't though of seeing how it scales with 20mm. Here are some pics I took to see.
There is a platoon20 dude, 2 Liberations MIB & an Elhiem Dokter for scale.
I think it loks pretty OK.

i really like the work you've done on the canopy Tom, excellent bit of painting - i just love the whole "pulp" feel of it, but you are right, it scales out pretty neatly at 20mm too!

grand job! :good:

Excellent Stuff Tom. Is a great piece.

There seems to be something of a focus on lost world stuff at the moment. Takes me back to all those old movies.
