15mm Private Security Contractor Team.

The boys from Thoinwater Security Consulting provide 15mm close protection for the discerning diplomat or news team travelling in the worlds wargaming hot spots like Franonia or Rayonia!

The figures are from Rebel Minis, they're not bad figures and you get 4 poses and get 5 of each pose so I farted about trying to make sure they're not too uniform but still giving them a certain company look? I have painted two news teams from Peter Pig to go with these and a couple of businessmen!

The vehicles (Toyota's) and gunners are from Peter Pig but I need something more modern like range rovers and may have to go 1:87 scale!

Pictures are the usual quality!













A lot of guys in my industry and some I even know have gotten their close protection licences to go into this dangerous line of work and I hope somebody got what the name of my company means!

  2. Good work... they really look the deal!

    Now you only need a Paul Bremer mini (guy with the combat boots and suit in the last photo). Every private contractor needs an *bleep*hole to protect! ;-)

  8. Hey buddy, I'm a little lost. Do you run a private security company? Or do you create the little models? They look great either way. The guy at the back in the photograph (of real people) does look like you!

  24. I'm kind of surprised you let news teams into Franonia. I imagined you had a China or North Korea style media.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Awesome, those are some mighty big guns. That guy in the back does look like you, remind me not to tick you off..haha

    ReplyDelete
  26. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a close protection license. I imagine it's not easy to get one.

  30. You did a good job of not making them look too uniformed! (I like the guy with the big gun in the pick up truck! His eyeware is a great colour!)
