I love the figures and your painting is outstanding!

I have a soft spot for Bladerunner-y stuff, it was one of my first introductions to the future noire genre and grabbed my imagination.

WOW !!!!  Got to love those reflections.
The City backdrop greatly adds to the effect. Where did that come from?

Those figures are amazing and as noted before - the reflections are incredible.  What a great collection.

That's certain. Both of it!  :)

@Daeothar: Thanks very much! Yeah, the car is very nicely designed in that it looks like something regular people would actually drive. It  looks neither too 'sci-fi', nor 'forced cartoony retro-futuristic'.

@Bloggard: Goodie. :)

@OSHIROmodels: Thanks very much, Sir!

@Elk101: Cheers! A collection (ie more than four :P ) civilian figures in any setting is something I enjoy a lot. Especially if they are as colourful as these here.

@Grumpy Gnome: Thanks!

@Pattus Magnus: Thank you very much! These figures are pretty big, but also got that pretty much impeccable casting quality. So they're rather fun to paint, albeit time intensive since each and every one of them is a character. So batch painting is a no-go in this case.

@Dags:  8)

@majorsmith: Oh, thanks. :)

@Ockman: Cheers!

@has.been: Thank you. The backdrop is a royalty-free stock picture off the internet.

@Gunner Dunbar: Thanks. :-)

@syrinx0: Thanks. Yus, I'm rather smugly satisfied with the reflections. :D Just feels right for the setting, and they make the cars a ton more interesting. Of course they don't make much sense (back when I painted the first few cars I looked at photos of reflections on cars and other things a LOT), but in a sort of stylized, slightly-cartoon-ish way I think they work. Which of course is always the cheap way out. :D If I'd gone for proper realistic reflections all across the cars the time invested would have gone up way more, the enjoyment of just mucking about would have diminished, and it probably would never have looked quite right unless there's terrain to match. It's kinda like with some OSL or NMM (the way we see it now on mostly 40k figures makes very, very little sense, but it looks cool. :D ). Last but not least, I just did it because few months prior I'd seen a paintjob on one of the Colony87(?) range cars by Crooked Dice doing a very similar thing, which just looked just immensely appealing to me and which just made me smile. Which happens rarely with looking at paintjobs, especially back last winter.

@Andym: :D A party that results in "I should go home and knit instead" sounds horrible. Thanks for the comment though. Maybe that helps: I'm not allowed to keep the figures either. :P

@Malebolgia: Cheers! Yeah, they're a colourful bunch, in every regard. :)

@hubbabubba, Michi: Funny you should mention that. Daeothar cited the same model before. Given with how many film references Black Site Studios work with that range I can't rule out that this is a film car with a Renault 5 used as a basis and I just didn't get the reference. :D Or the model (which obviously is drawn up on a computer) itself was just based on a Renault 5 and they drew things on.

@BillK: Thanks. :)


Well, the figures have been handed over, the gentleman is very happy with what they look like. Job's a good'un. :)
