The Advetures of Missouri Boone - Pulp

Hello fellow adventurers. I have finally taken some pics of a long dormant project that I have gotten the bug for again. The Adventures of Missouri Boone. A blatant rip-off of Indiana Jones and his assorted adventures, anlong with all the pulpy goodness of the Mummy movies, and the Rocketeer, and the diabolical machinations of the pre-war super-science of the Third Reich and their quest for power.
Pics are not great, but are of my painting table in full swing of painting, constructing, and assembling things.

First up, is a series of Adventures in Egypt. I am making a large collection of tomb chamber pieces and accessories. I use Hirst Arts molds, mount them on foam, then paint and detail. the amount of variety in Hirst Arts molds os unbelieveable, and they look great assembled.

Rooms and passages are about half done, with some feature rooms with pools, fire coals, etc. And tons of accessories, pillars, doorways, statues, altars, and a throne. Also added walls and stairs this last go round.

Once the scenery is complete (about 250 pieces) I will finish the first round of intrepid adventurers. Mostly Copplestone and Foundry DA, BoB, but Artizan makes some great stuff as well. And of course all kinds of ressurected bad guys to fight.
Games will be played fully on table top. Probably the game I am bringing to Recruits Convention this spring. http://recruits.mtswebsites.com/.
Next Chapter will be China and all the BoB goodness, and the great John Jenkins Design Zombie Terra Cotta Warriors, Dragons, and the mysteries of the far east. And maybe some Axis Menace from Japan thrown in. Got a pretty nice group of Brits already to go.
From there, who knows. Maybe the crypts of Transylvannia to thwart the Reich from getting a hold of a still staked in his coffin Dracula for their experimentation.
If only there were an Abbott and Costello set of minis.
