Wild In The Streets - Skinheads, crusty punks, goths and more!
« on: October 17, 2014, 10:26:40 PM »
I'm working on a new vanity project of miniatures based on friends for a skirmish gang game. I've been contracting out the sculpting work and currently have three skinheads, a crusty punk and a sort of goth girl. I've got plans for more skinheads, crusties, goths, black metal dudes and straight edge dudes. As I've said, each miniature is based on a real friend, except for two, and I plan to do more as I get people to commit to doing a photo session with me. The minis are slightly larger than most being 32mm to the eyes. Please see the pictures below.

Interesting - that IS a vanity project. Very nice sculpts, full of character.

Cool any reason in particular that you chose this subject and scale of figs?

Looks really interesting.
Curious how this will develop, like the goth and skins so far.
The punks face looks a little weird, are the lines supposed to be his beard?

I'm happy to hear that you like them. 32 to the eyes isn't much larger than the other figures my group uses for gaming now. I know its a little big for most people but hopefully someone else will find use for them or will be interested in trying out the game my group made and has been playing for about a year in my garage. The subject matter was chosen because I've been involved in the punk/hardcore scene for 30ish years, I thought it would make an interesting set up for a gang fight game and I don't care for the Mad Max/Quincy/CHIPs types of punk figures others are releasing. Here is a scale shot with a Rackham, Games Workshop and Privateer Press figure.

Thanks! I'm hoping to finish a dozen to twenty miniatures.

This is seriously impressive, vanity project or otherwise.
Great sculpts.

Hey s00p, I was one of the people asking about the project on IG. Another thing has occured to me. I was at a show in NYC when a crust punk ran into a pit with a giant back pack, with their dog sitting on top of it. Could make for an interesting mini.

Love the range! :-*
Not enough skinny vegan crust punkers though. And the opposite; fat vegan crust punks having a sole diet of Chips and bread...
