Miniatures for 1930s 10KB
« on: December 03, 2007, 10:20:01 PM »
Hmmm, as I recall there is a 1930s version of 10KB in the works. Ran across the Gangland series by Blue Moon Manufacturing - might work well for the setting, both gangsters and vehicles are available, the vehicles are a tad pricey, but look nice. :) Pictures are linked to some of the figures in the range.


Gangsters


The heat


Moonshiners


Highways and Byways

Vehicles in the background are not included.

Well, either thst's a 30' long car, or the presumption is each figure only controls about 2.5' ofspace.

I suspect that the car is done to a somewhat larger scale, yes. Though I compare the height rather than the base. They also avoid using specific cars, I think.

The (very) old Models of Yesteryear by Matchbox were very good, but I do not think that they are made anymore, very close to 25 mm. scale.

I'd love to know how such a little country can have such a brutal exchange rate in their favour.

You know, the guy on the top left would work well for the stereotypical Russian KGB Thug in Cheap Suit. Pretty much any period up until the Wall comes down.

Are there any U.S. distributors for Copplestone Castings?

Pulp Figures also puts out a selection of suitable models in their Gangland Justice range.
