The other reason I thought of these this week is that local game designer Taran will be using them at his Infected Dead launch event in a few weeks time - check out the link and come face the zombies if you can make it! My own legions of zombies from a little while ago are going to join in the carnage, as well as the lady troopers from way back.
Taran is also responsible for the splendid new banner at the top of the blog, many thanks!
Taken from their wide range of adventurers and other ranges, these figures are destined to be members of my henchmen squads. Where the troopers I have from Heresy and Hasslfree are somewhat regimented, this figures are a more rag tag bunch, deliberately so as they are going to be on more dangerous missions, whether embarked in a flyer or acting as melee troops.
This first lady is, I believe a reference to Seline in Underworld, played by Kate Beckinsale. Regardless, she's a tough looking one in a trenchcoat, bodyglove and packing 2 pistols.
Where these characters had shiny leather elements on them, I've used some clear gloss finish acrylic to make them look the part, I think it works well and I've made sure I have a pot handy now for anything I do - although I have to paint it after varnishing as I use anti-shine spray!
This is only the first 5 I've completed, I have a bunch more ready to go at some point and Hasslefree have released a whole load more characters since my last order who are great as well!
