I don't know what the hell to say. I'm sorry that this greyscale thing has gotten a little out of hand.
We've been playing some more 'Strange Aeons' and so I picked up a bunch of figures to stand in as suitable heroes, villains and associated horrors. Shown here are a bunch of nefarious cultists from Bob Murch's excellent range of 28mm Pulp Figures.
As you can see these Foul Minions of the Elder Gods are armed with everything from spell books to flame throwers (with a heavy machine gun thrown in for good measure).

Similar to my WWI project, I've done these mainly in greyscale as a nod to the vintage horror / film noir feel of the game. Based on some of the feedback I received from my first efforts I decided to add some colour to the baddies in order to make them stand out. These cultists are from my self described 'Order of the Yellow Hand' and accordingly I've given them a single yellow glove for a bit of fun.
I really like how over-accentuated some of the poses are. They seem to have that campy silent film quality about them.
I also picked up a set of damsels in distress to be rescued or sacrificed, depending on the outcome of the scenarios.
To me the one above looks a little like Fay Wray in the 1933 version of 'King Kong'. Very cool.
I also quite like the pose of this last lass - very Betty Page I think.
In the future I'll post up some of the heroes that are sitting on the workbench.
