@Sterling Moose: Thanks very much! :)

@OSHIROmodels: Yeah, as I said: the cars should bit 28mm figures.

@Dags: Cheers!

@Bloggard: Thanks very much! Yeah, they're meant to be used for dioramas mostly.

@Grumpy Gnome: Thank you; much appreciated. :)

@JollyBob: Well, I am a ridiculous man. :D

@Blackwolf: Cheers; I try!

@Earther: Thank you!


Thanks for all the positive feedback! I was informed that I'll be painting some more figures and cars from that range. In the mean time, here's the characters with a proper background as well:

I like the miniatures
and the vehicles
and your painting!

Too bad the vehicles and figures are only available in the US.

The work you've done on those cars is awesome, the reflections work really well. Congrats.

Reflections are like little works of art one must ask how?

As with the others, super sweet painting. Nailed the look!
I have a small cyberpunk project I haven't touched in ages, this makes me want to pick it up again.


Cheers for the info mate  :)

A bit big but they might just do at a stretch.

They sell STLs of the models too, so you could size them to suit.

@Sgt_T: Dr Mathias pointed out that apparently you can buy the digital files from them as well, so that's nice. :)

@hubbabubba: Thank you!

@Golgotha: Cheers! A unique mix of start-of-the-year-depression, knowing that I'll forever regret it if I don't try this, and Bat ouf of Hell 1 did this. :D I just sat down and gave it a go. I love neon cityscape reflections on sci-fi cars. I'm the last person in the world who would refer to figure painting as art (because I think the real art happens elsewhere), but especially on the front windows of the red and the blue cars it almost goes in that direction, because physically, the reflections don't make that much sense, but much rather look like the front page of a comicbook or something. I bent the reflections a bit to make them look more reflection-y, but it's much more German expressionist film than correct reflection. :D

@Dr Mathias: Cheers! Let me know if you need the figures painted. ;)

@tancrede: Thanks very much, Sir. Much appreciated as always. Yeah, I'm rarely proud of things I do, but of those I kinda am. :D

Those reflections on the car windows are absolutely astonishing.

Just incredible and a big WOW!  you need to do a tutorial to show how to do the reflection technique

@Osmoses: Thanks very much. :)

@bandit86: Here we go: Paint the windshields in a purple-to-very-dark-purple fade, realize that this looks pretty daft on the pretty single-colour cars and that life's too short to paint something to look daft. Remember the nicest sci-fi 80s anime (those did reflections very, very well), look up reference photos in general, put on Bat Out of Hell, paint on the reflections, paint on the reflective beam-y like bright white things over everything in the end. :) The fun really starts when you got multiple windows (possibly at varying angles) facing the same direction, and you can play around with guessing how the reflection would look like in that other window. It really was one of those "just trying it and see how it turns out" kind of things. That seems to be the technique I employ the most. :D

Heyhey, here's more figures for this collection! They're more general cyberpunk civilians and one more car. But that one's flying!

These figures are all by Black Site Studios and are available via their website. They're proper tall 32mm figures although the cars will fit with 28mm figures as well. They come with tall 25mm round bases (the nun with the tv on the tea tray comes with a 30mm base or something like that) which I replaced with Renedra 25mm round bases. Because why would a non-slotta figure stand on a tall base. The packs are sold as seen in the closer-up photos. The two-figures "inventors" pack is being sold off now, so if you want to grab a very tall dude in a suit (and another dude in a kicky beret), get them now. :)

I'm in no way affiliated with Black Site Studios, I just wanted to give you all the infos in case you're interested. 


Hope you like the figures! I was a bit worried I wouldn't get the car done like the prior ones since a bunch of months have passed since I did them, but I'm rather sure it'll fit in well.

Another wonderful bunch of minis  :-*

And I'm very sure the car will fit in seamlessly with the other ones. It reminds me of a Fiat Ritmo or a Renault 5 for some reason...
