From PhilH: 28mm Pulp Action Femme Fatale and Pink-Arsed Baboons (36 points)

These baboons show to le Femme their collective opinion of 'Le Societe Archaelogique'.
Phil sends in this eclectic selection of figures: six baboons and a French femme fatale for his Pulp adventures.


Phil wanted Rhesus monkeys but happily made do with these baboons from Obelisk Miniatures in Germany. I really like them! They look suitably ferocious and very animated. Phil says he's never had to ponder the shade of pink that should be used for baboon arses...


Next up is a 'femme fatale' from the 'Societe Archaelogique'. Made complete with a jaunty beret, ubiquitous scarf and a small yet businesslike automatic pistol, one cannot help but look at her and say 'Allo Allo!'. She is a West Wind Production sculpt from their French Resistance range. Great plaid pattern on the skirt! Sarah quite liked the self-possession that this lass shows (speculating that her handbag must hold a bottle of Chanel, a make-up compact and an extra 9mm clip).

These seven will give Phil 35 points but I'll nudge it up to 36 for the nice pattern on le femme's skirt.

  2. Deep pink - essentially red - is the way to go with baboon's arses.

  5. A mistake.

    A new bit of knowledge...
    Very nice models, Phil, and the painting in all of them is wonderful.
