Messin with Sasquatch

 Bigfoots (bigfeet?) don't really play a prominent role in the world of Monster Hunter International.   They are mentioned once or twice and actually appear as the body guard of a Wendigo deep in the haunted swamps of Natchy Bottom.

But, as I had them, and they were already primed, I decided to give them some paint and get them done.

These are nice chunky models, I *think* are Pontoonier miniatures and were quite fun to paint up.

I've had a soft spot for Sasquatch since I was a little fella, so I'm glad to add them to my latest project.
Gimme some beef jerky

The reddish one was my favorite, just that striding pose and the call back to that famous walking bigfoot picture from the 60's just make him perfect.

Back in 2006 or so, I tried sculpting my own Bigfoot.  I based it on that iconic picture.
Click me to make me bigger!

The sculpt wasn't all that great, but it was incredibly fun to do.  I eventually painted it all up and based it too look like it was walking through the forest.  I gave it to my Dad, as he's probably the reason I have such a soft spot for Sasquatch as it is....

I'm not a dude in a suit.
So in other, non related, but still hairy hominid news.....WEREWOLVES!!!

Does it smell like updog in here?

Werewolves on the other hand, do play a prominent part in MHI.  Owen Z Pitt fights and kills one in the opening chapter of the first book.  That introduces both the Monster Control Bureau and the Monster Hunter International to him.  And that's just the start.  So, obviously, I'm gonna need alot of them.  Here's a WiP pic of several I cleaned, assembled, (and now primed), ready for my hamfisted paint!

Lastly for this entry, is another addition to my 'grunt' forces, designed to work for the Monster Control Bureau.  These guys are in Hazmat suits, no doubt fighting off some sort of inter dimensionary toxic creature.  Simple paint for these Hasslefree minis.  Not sure why I chose orange, other than to just make them look a bit different from Hazmat guys I've seen.

Hey are these suits claw proof?

So, after three years of no posts, I've posted three times in a bout a week....I guess when the muse calls, you have to answer.  Thanks for reading!  See you soon.

You're... back. Really back. This is good. I like your apes... sorry, Sasquatches! ;) They somehow remind me of Hyde from the "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" comics. The hazmat squad look great, clean and lethally professional. What paint is that orange?
