Battle Royale 2 child soldiers
« on: June 14, 2020, 08:54:29 AM »
Hello everyone,

First off, sorry if this is the wrong place.

I would like to make some soldiers based off the caracters in the 2nd battle royale movie, I have looked online but I am having trouble finding anywhere where I can get suitable parts and I am hoping that someone could point me in the right direction.

I have some pictures to show you what I'm looking for:


The weapons they have seem to be modified Famas guns and they seem to have some kind of lower-leg armour.


Thanks.

They're not exactly children in the movie though are they, they're high school kids, granted Japanese aren't that tall in general, Ai Maeda who played one of the lead girls is only 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in) according to her wiki, but for the boys at least I would say you could just use any modern special forces troopers that look like they carry the correct equipment, the girls might be more difficult.

Ground Zero Games 25mm Star Grunt?

That could work, I also thought the Empress miniatures Russians could be made to look the part, they don't have the correct guns but there were lots of AKs in the movie anyway.

Maybe you could use some 20mm Modern French infantry...

You might find something in Hasslefree's ranges... they tend to be a bit smaller, especially some of the females:

I thoroughly endorse the model called Alien (rest of the moderns are ok too I guess  ;) )

I guess the one called suzi would work as a hero unit. I've mostly played brikwars, so I don't know if other games have heroes too.
I could get her and a bunch of russians from empress.

Hi, it's been a long time but I've finally got to the point where I'm ready to get this stuff, I'm thinking that Eureka FFL would be best because of the guns, I just need to ask you some questions first:
Do the French come with bases already? If so, are they round ones or do I need to buy them separately? If they aren't round, then which size of base would stop them from sticking over the side?

Thanks.

My guess is that, as with most metals, they have an integral base.

I base my moderns on Renedra 25mm plastic bases, with the metal bases cropped to fit and blended in with milliput.

If I want flat bases, I use Warlord lipped bases and blend that in with milliput.

By the way, are the guns FAMAS or G36?



Empress Bundeswehr with G36.

Empress have numerous helmet styles.

The guns are Famas


I might get some Empress ones at a later date to add a bit of variety.

Sorry, I could not find the IMFDB link.

Not a FAMAS, but an alternative, there is the Empress PLA.


Armed with QBZ95 bullpup rifle and I think the figures are shorter than the general Empress etc.

You could also go with Eureka FFL. They are a shorter then Empress figs and have Famas. 
Just give them a few head changes too look like the kids. https://www.eurekamin.com.au/index.php?cPath=87_126_150_849
