In case you hadn't gotten it yet, this is the stuff right here.  Wink

(Yes, I just plugged myself.  I'm actually more embarrassed that I had to go to one of our distributors' store fronts to find that.  I'll have to talk to the boss about that Thursday.)

They also make a white putty.  White doesn't shrink as much and is easier to sand, but its porous nature also means you have to prime it to heck.  For most jobs, green fits the bill nicely.

Cool stuff on this and the terrain conversations. Thanks!

I feel that I must draw on my real life here and warn everyone to get plenty of fresh air while working with any of these adhesives. I work with chemical companies on their environmental performance and I can say that A) they work hard not to find out the toxicity and ecotoxicity profile of the product and B) they are not very good at identifying what they do know. Despite that, the toxicity of most of the adhesives includes a risky mix of carcinogenicity (cancer), sterility and reproductive mutagens, and more.

No need to panic, just try not to use them for hours on end, keep the cap on whenever possible, and make sure the hobby work area gets plenty of fresh air.

My biggest problem with terrain pieces I work on is making the base pieces  strong enough to support the latex I use to make the molds I use to make more of them with. I've considered making the base pieces out of bulsa, but it skyrockets the workload for things.

From the Miniatures Page I found a line of 1960s
Some look strangely familiar, don't they Mrs. Peel?
Indeed, Mr. Steed.


Others, less so.


And still others are familiar, but I can't quite place them.


These are all prerelease photos from Copplestone Castings.

1st figures in the 2nd and 3rd photos are Michael Caine (probably not Carter) and Roger Moore (Bond or the Saint)

In pic 2, the leftmost figure is Michael Caine's character Harry Palmer from The Ipcress File, IIRC.

In pic 2 the female looks to me like Honor Blackman aka P***y Galore.

Grrr, I misplaced an e-mail adress for a friend of mine - I wanted to send him an image of the first picture - I think he would recognize Number Six.

Is it just me, or are a bunch of companies doing recognizable figures from movies and TV these days? (I picked up a bunch of 'Modern Call of Cthulhu' figures at Chaosium's recent sale... I swan, I was able to pin almost every single figure to one film or another.)

The Auld Grump, as for Hassle Free... they have warm and fuzzy miniatures, or at least -

Hot Fuzz. (Image from The Miniatures Page.) They also have a group of adventurers that really should have a big, cowardly, talking dog with them....

Even Reaper -

One of the alternate arms is holding a whip... I may need to get this figure, just so I can keep up with the Joneses....

http://www.miniaturemarket.com/home

I just went through the star wars / hero clix singles, picking all the cheap ($0.20 - $0.75) figs that looked crafty.

Then I bought a handful of the expensive (to me - $1.00 -1.50) figs for more unique baddies.

Shipping included, 56 figs for $40.55. 

A lot of those figs, I'd like to add, have adventure hooks built into their appearances.

I've just been raiding someone's clixcollection for the REV cannon fodder and I think I made out quite nicely on the deal:

3x Henchman
3x Lackey
3x Thug
3x SWAT Specialist
3x SWAT Heavy Weapons
3x SWAT Officer
3x HDC Trooper
3x Gotham Policeman
2x Easy Company Soldier
3x Metroplis SCU
3x Criminal

32 figs (+ any unlisted extras of their types) + O/S postage to Australia = US$20

The SWAT figures in particular are really nice.

Nice find!  I only game every 2 weeks, so there's every change I will have a bag full of mooks ready for next session.  Can't wait.


 Anyone have any experience with http://www.worldworksgames.com ?

 Their terrains look *great*, they're really cheap for those with subsidized printer ink, and it looks like they're sturdy enough to support miniatures on top of stuff...

Huh.  Googled "site:http://www.worldworksgames.com/ spycraft"  Turns out our Auld Grump is a top poster on worldworksgames.  So at least someone's using their stuff for spycraft.

These figs are almost exactly the ones I've used to build the Crafty Demo Team "go-boxes" for shows...
