The first accomplishment in what can only be described as a fail of a project, the Gold Lama and his faithful yeti (Hey! I'm a yeren...grumble...mutter..) driver, Talaga, are the first league to reach full painted status since I announced this project in *sigh* August. To add insult to injury, they are a small league of only two figures - leader and sidekick. On the other hand, I should be proud because I painted them in one day.

The Gold Lama is a Superfigs miniatures available through Old Glory. He was painted with an intentional nod to Marvel's Iron Fist, one of my favorite comic book character. The golden skin was a late thought that I feel really sells the pulpy nature of this character as a mystic, versed in the ancient secrets of the East.
Talaga is a Judge Dredd miniatures Ape Gang Gorilla from Mongoose. The Gold Lama has always had a yeti as a sidekick and when I saw this gorilla, it was love at first sight. What better a pulp sidekick/driver/major domo than an ape in suspenders, trousers and a bow tie. He's packing heat in his pocket and stands ready with a crowbar.
