The American Secret Service foothold in the center of the vast British Empire could not be maintained without some solid backup in the form of veteran federal soldiers. Hank, Bill and Ulysses are three such distinguished troopers. They are no stranger to human conflict, but the foes they will face in the streets of London are something else altogether...


For the US of A!


Ulysses


Hank




Bill

All three figures are prepainted King and Country figures. Only the bases were repainted to match the rest of the collection.

And a look at the assembled members of this faction so far:

Good additions, you must have a fairly large collection now. I tried to find some of those amazing bats of yours but no luck.

Wonderful additions, especially those bats!
 :-* :-*

I must also say that the inventive basing on those flying rodents is particularly clever.

Cheers, folks. The bats fit right in size and stylewise, even though they’re intended for a wholly different scale.

Chocolate Factory Gang - Willy Wonka

Wonka's chocolate factory had been locked for many years after other candy makers, including rival Arthur Slugworth, sent in spies to steal his recipes. Willy Wonka became a recluse, seldom seen. But all that changed recently. The factory was reopened and five golden tickets were hidden in chocolate Wonka bars. Finders of the tickets were promised a factory tour and a lifetime supply of chocolate. Willy Wonka himself has been spotted on the corners of the London streets, offering candy to street urchins. But while he looks like a kindly, if somewhat eccentric gentleman, rumours start to arise. Some say not all of those who entered his factory with the golden tickets returned and that those who did have now taken up residence in Bedlam. And what about those stunted shadowy figures that are often reported around the area's he has visited?



The figure is one I had especially sculpted and then moulded and cast in resin for this project in 60mm. The size is compatible with the likes of King & Country and John Jenkins Designs. The paintjob is of course inspired by the Gene Wilder version of the character.




It's only a piece of harmless candy, constable. Try some.

A brilliant, extremely left-field, addition to the project.

If it’s not left field, I wouldn’t have it.  ;D

I've had a few requests for it, even at that size, so will see about doing a small run of them cast to order. Need to work out a pricepoint though.

Wonderful Wonka !  He certainly has that Victorian look.

He totally feels like he fits in, so I think it wasn't much of a stretch to transport him to Victorian London.

Hopefully I will have a chance to start on his little helpers soon.  ;D
