15mm Painted Franonian Riot Police.

Not that there's ever a need to deploy them in the peaceful tax haven that is Franonia, but the presence of the well trained and experienced riot department is a calming influence!

Figures are from Rebel Minis and the Bulldog vehicles are from Peter Pig, I could have put more detail into them but didn't (I have no excuse!) as I believe they're intimidating enough by their plain uniform and hardware.

  2. Now that's some nasty Rubber/Gas-Robocop-Artillery :D
    I don't think they need more brush-attention. Simple and good-looking figures!

  4. I wonder if there's an irony somewhere in buying riot police from a place called Rebels.

    Fran, I'm truly impressed by your speed...and your skills!
    They look amazing!Pls don't tell me you painted them in a day's time. I'd weep in grief and despair!

  6. Hmmmm, obviously the Dear Leader is worried about his population's reaction to his benevolent policies.....

  7. Excellent Fran. They are rather intimidating.

    ReplyDelete
  8. They certainly are a riot Fran. I like the fact that they have vehicle support. Great for getting you to the trouble spots and out of them if things go pear shaped.

    Nice one.

  9. You know, there is something to be said for not adding all the detail - they are more intimidating I think.

  19. Their uniform does look unique. Vehicle does look like one of those you see in sciencefic movies against aliens. Franconia does look like dreamland and safe haven

  20. Very nice. The color scheme makes them look very menacing. Great job on the vehicles, too, but I think the vehicles should have a Franonian flag or something, just to show the colors.

  21. Very smartly painted tools of the Establishment. ;)

  22. En masse they do look intimidating, vehicles look excellent.
    How much more detail do you want/need in 15mm ? - I'm lucky to get detail anywhere close to your's with the larger 28mm figures !

    ReplyDelete
  23. Nice looking! They look like they are ready to crack some non law abiding skulls!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You will surely crush any riot should it arise.

    ReplyDelete
  25. oh, sweet Franonia! What's the capital of Franonia?

    ReplyDelete

  28. Great, now I have to behave myself in Franonia. My drunken belligerence won't be tolerated, and well, I don't want to mess with those guys.

  40. Look detailed enough to me. I reckon they look the part and do the job really well! They'll certainly stick it to those Rayonian rebels.

    ReplyDelete
  41. All hail Franonia and its wonderful free and understanding government. The are great and I dont thing you need to add to them. I love them

    ReplyDelete
  42. You do realize Rayonia have people working within your country? Trying to initialize rebellion.

    These fine gentlemen are the perfect tool for cutting these fellows down!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. These look great, just the thing for containing any social discontent those rayonians may cause

    ReplyDelete
  44. They look like they would be quite happy to crack some skulls just for the fun of it. I'd get out of their way.
    Well done.
    Cheers,

  45. The citizens of Franonia will sleep easier knowing the Thin Blue Line is there to prevent disorder!

    Lovely stuff again Fran!

  46. Franonia is really a peacefull place.

    Very nice models, Fran.

    ReplyDelete
  47. looks plenty detailed to me. Nice work!

  48. Awesome looks like an awesome team

    ReplyDelete
  49. Very necessary in the heaven that is Franonia! Or at least some snipers. These do!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I don't know why these appeal to me, but they do.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Just noticed that I am on your blog list. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hah, all the poses look intimidating enough to me.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I will happyily be the chief of police if I get these guys to command... great job fran. Time to put an end to Rays criminal gangs

    ReplyDelete
  54. I could use guys like these to help me with my Dino infestation. The bastards are out of control and they're breeding. You should see the size of the egg I came across yesterday, as big as a car. I went inside, grabbed my glock and fired an entire clip into the thing. Bullets just ricocheted right off the side of that thing. I either need to change the angle of trajectory of my shots or I'm gonna need bigger ordinance.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Do you think you have enough of them to stop the Rayonia hooligans? Franonian Battle Smurfs? You guys have a lot of imagination :-D LOL

    Very good painted figures Fran!

  56. Its good that the foreign investment flooding in to Franonia from all the tax dodgers enables it to indulge in these fripperies of state. Then again I'm sure these lads come in handy when the riff-raff fifth-columnists from Rayonia decide to cause trouble.

    (Those Bulldog vehicles are very cool, btw.)
