Shades of Grey

I know my activity here has been very limited. Running the LoA blog has been quite a bit of fun but it's also been fairly time consuming. I am trying to finish Donnybrook, add to the range of Quindia Studios flags (almost have all of the Swedish foot for Poltava ready to go), and still piddling around with other projects.

One of these projects is a collection of adventurers for pulp era games, destined for an H.P. Lovecraft style setting. I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do with them - I envision a skirmish game with several groups of adventurers (possibly rivals) and 1920's era policemen facing off against cultists, deep ones, and other Things That Should Not Be. My Donnybrook rules will work perfectly well with a few modern additions like vehicles and SMGs and some rules for madness and giant gribbly monsters.

Anyway, more on that at a later time. I decided pulp horror is best in black and white and so I set out to try my hand at a few noir minis...

I've got lots of these characters painted and I'll post some more in a few days. They have all been painted with various Foundry triads. The models are all from Artizan and Copplestone.


  1. Great work! This grey scale thing is really amazing.

  2. great work on the grey scale

  3. very nice, I really like this style and it so well fits the era.


  4. Clarence,

    I presume that you know about Bob Murch's Pulp Figures . . . but in case you don't, here is a link:

    And, yes, I agree that "black & white" (i.e., grey scale) gives the pulp era a nice feel for those of us who enjoy the "film noir" and "Saturday Serials" periods.

    I look forward to seeing more from you on this project.

  5. Love the greyscale figures, this does seem to be gaining an interest this painting style.

  6. Wonderful execution of these in greyscale. I too would love to see more.
