More 15mm Hazmat Troopers for Zombie or even Modern Gaming.......

....and I see some of you are on SiteHoundSniffs.com 

Been a while but motivation is lacking a bit.........

I've had these for a while but you can't beat an old classic from Khurasan, these are more a military unit rather than the previous private contractor unit, I've always liked the fact they have mostly silenced weapons and flamethrowers!

They also remind me of the sardaukar from the movie Dune!









A site that is listing worthy sites and blogs under one of the headers Miniatures and Modeling, famous names are listed like Simon Miller, Loki, Anne O'Leary, Johnny Frandsen etc...... but then I  saw Ray's name and was a little disappointed to be honest...........they'll let anybody in!

  10. No Idea what Site hound sniffs. Perhaps I had best not enquire!
    The Hazmat troops do look good. Everyone (well apart from Ray) has a use for Hazmat troops.

  13. "This person, this traitor, will be worth more to us than ten legions of Sardaukar!" - Great painting Fran, and a genuinely tempting post... Do they do a range which could be used as Fremen perchance?

  14. These look great, especailly when I realised they were 15mms!

  15. Nicely done! I love the fact you chose some more unusual colours (most of the suits are either yellow or a dirty white). The colour reminds me a bit of those chemical protection working gear.

  16. Do you loan these guys out to clean 1/1 scale bathrooms? I bet they could get into all the hard to reach places!

    Nice work as always, Fran (and congrats to your boys for their brilliant win over a certain rugby team a couple of weeks ago...)

    Cheers,
    Aaron

  19. Flamethrowers and silenced pistols seems like a strange combination to me. Flamethrowers are kinda noticeable.

    1. Reasonably silent though......

    2. Apart from the screaming when people get burnt to death.

  23. They appear to present some certain dread, can't put my finger on it. They look good tho :)

  24. They totally look like Sardaukar troopers! (You need a few with cracked faceplates.) Great work Francis.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Awesome work! The answer is zombies. Always zombies. And hey, we're on SiteHoundSniffs too, so sorry if we stink the joint up.

  26. Fantastic. I love these. I've only ever seen these in yellow. This color selection really makes these stand out.
