Pulp Sci Fi Figures

I haven’t had a lot of painting time this past week, but last weekend I started on a handful of pulp science fiction figures from Wargames Supply Dump.  Many of the Dirk Garrison figure seem very inspired by the Flash Gordon comic strips.  These Disidian Yeomen resemble the warriors under Prince Barin of Arboria.

My daughter painted these robots for me while she was home for a few weeks for Summer break.  Below are her robots facing two of Disdain yeomen.

In addition to the Disidians, I also painted a unit of Aquillians.

The Web site shows them as green, but I thought that was too cliche, so I painted them in orange.  Who says the water on the Aquillian home world isn’t orange.

    They all look great!
    Maybe those Aquillians are descended from goldfish and that’s why they’re orange! 🙂

    Yes, they do have that carp look to them, don’t they?

  3. I agree with Chris – and the Disidians are well done too. Sam did a nice job on the robots – it must be nice to have an “apprentice” as it were. But robots are not intrinsically evil, unless they are crony capitalist/socialist robots.

    So do Aquilians eat Star Duck or vice versa?

    *I* didn’t say which side was good or evil in the picture. I think you are showing your xenophobic bias.
