Who Dares WIP

some g/s'ing has been afoot while waiting for Tudor cottage things to set/dry...

finally found some 80's SAS I can live with:

TAG Modern SWAT with gasmask heads from Eureka and some g/s - I did buy some of the Urban Beat SAS from North Star, but they are so skinny they looked silly next to normal 28mm figs... these will be doing duty as special forces back up obviously...

Lewis Collins in waiting:

a Rogue miniatures not-DieHard terrorist with new feet, soon to get some new hands and when I get my head order a new head... undecided which one, may be the Man from 2000...

and my super spy:


another Rogue Miniatures figure, this time a not Steve McQueen - I'm torn when it comes to Rogue minis, they have some nice ideas, but some odd sculpts... off came the small head and the small hand with a vague blobby revolver, some g's to give him some bigger feet (why the Rogue minis all have such small extremities I have no idea, they just look weird) and his remaining hand was bulked out... the shoulder holster was sculpted very oddly at the rear, I get that they were aiming for tight and elasticated, but the thing was sculpted so deep into his back it looked like something from a Saw movie, so g/s over that and a new rear holster made... the head is from the Man from 2000 from Crooked Dice, as is the gun (made less sci-fi and more silencer) - this head is quite close to the original in style, just bigger and better... sadly the Hasslefree heads are a little too large for the slighter Rogue Mini's, but the Crooked Dice heads work just fine... I almost went with the beardy Tweedy for this chap, but the MF2000 seemed more in keeping...

Nicely done dude. I've been umming and aaahing over getting the Urban beat ones. Do you have any of the other police? Been considering getting the ones with MP5's

no, I had hoped the SAS would work, but really weird proportions, not a fan of the other coppers they do...

"The bomb has been planted". That SAS guy is gonna wish he'd spent some cash on a defuse kit and some smoke...
