Los Vesparados; El trabajo en México
« on: April 14, 2021, 02:09:55 PM »
A while back I came across the following cartoon and thought, as you do, they would make aces minis....



Thanks to LAF's own tin shed gamer my dream has come true....



This is the first one - still warm from the master mould - of 3 that Mark's done - to say I'm chuffed would be an understatement!

The other 2 to follow as I get time  o_o

That's awesome - I would probably be in for a set of just the riders so I could make the Raptor Bandits from the Dr McNinja webcomic.

Much as I hate to agree with Mad Laird Snaphaunce on anything, however Piddling, in this instance I must...

I'd imagine though that El Jeffe would prefer this model:

Thanks all (though most of the praise should go to Mark for the putty pushing)

I'm now looking at a 106mm recoiless in the bits box and thinking of  scratching something completely daft for Gaslands!

Is it bad that I want these for my post-apoc world?

No - I'll be using them for Gaslands and they'll also be making an appearance in a PA game at Salute (if it happens  o_o)

In response to the PMs regarding these; they won't be 'commercially' available - I haven't got the time or the inclination to start a miniatures business (no matter how small) and I've seen what happens to those that do  ;)  However, at some point I will make a production mould (at the moment there's only a master mould and it takes 3 spins to get a complete set of 3 scooters, handlebars, bodies, legs & hats - hardly sensible) so there might be a few spares once I have my 'fleet'! So if you are still interested and don't want them NOW drop me a message

As I already said over on facebook, I would need some of these, if commercially available
