    A while ago I painted some stuff for Darkest Africa. Time to show some images here.

    Today tribal warriors in hideous masks by Foundry.

    Lovely miniatures. Hope you like them. For more, please visit my blog.

    I like those, did you use Coat d’Arms for the skin tone or a Foundry paint?

    Not a group you’d like to come across in a dark jungle, or anywhere else for that matter!

    A nice paintjob, I like that you didn’t have all the masks in wooden colors, the brighter ones make the whole group pop a bit more 🙂

    Thanks, guys.

    @Mike: I used Vallejo Model Color 872 Chocolate Brown for the skin tone. The whole minis are shaded with Army Painter Quickshade (the darkest one), so they look even darker.

    @Alexander: Yes, I painted the masks more colorful because I like them to look more pulpish.

    Today some bearers from Foundry.

    I hope you like them. The miniatures are also fine as plot points for Pulp Alley.

    Nice painting, I assume of course that there will be a part of the trail where they fear to go any farther?

    @Mike. Of course. We all know how this story is going to end.  But some day the bearers will be joined by armed European explorers.

    Great looking figures. I don’t know much about the period but wouldn’t the masks be used more for ceremonial occasions rather than conflict? Of course, ‘Pulp’ has more to do with the romance and adventure of the period rather than the history so I don’t suppose it really makes much difference.

    Very cool looking!

    I suppose it depends whether those European explorers become part of the ‘ceremony’.

    @autodidact-o-saurus:  I guess you’re right. In reality, those masks would be pretty heavy and cumbersome to wear in combat.
