ideas for Tron Legacy minis
« on: December 14, 2013, 10:40:51 PM »
Ok looking for cyber-zen inspired minis. Clu's guard, programs and ISOs etc... thought about:

  • Governance of Technology ,
    some statuesque models,
    a few void minis,
    East riding sci-fi
    Infinity.
    Some Hasslefree
    Akula's elite troops
    Puppets of war headswops
.


Any other ideas? Generally unarmed, or at least one handed weapons or close combat. Civilians too.







Pics and websites if poss.

Cheers

Mark

Aren't the humans from Dreadball supposed to be Tron inspired? The mvp's are. I'd post pics but I'm on the move.
So many projects..... so little time.......

I'd say there have to be quite a number of fitting models in the Infinity range. Basically, everyone that wears a fancy one-piece sci-fi suit ;)

As mentioned already the humans from Dreadball will work (that's how I'll be painting them up), but also the newer Asterian team also has TRON-inspired suits. The heads on the Asterians aren't too good, imho. Dreadball minis are on the small side, so finding a head-swap in scale will be tricky. I've seen an attempt with Eldar guardian heads but they look too big to me.  I'm not sure what will work, but if anyone thinks of a good idea, I'd love to see it!

Finally, these figures are made from PVC plastic, which if you care about removing mold lines, are an absolute pain to work with. Each human Dreadball figure is taking me 7-10 hours to clean. I am a bit OCD, though, so ymmv. I have had to painstakingly resculpt most of the recessed indentations between armor plates because of the inexact spin-casting method these figures are made with. Shallow inset detail can easily be lost. That has increased my clean-up time dramatically, but I really want them to turn out right.

The ladies in that movie had a real smoldering hotness to them.

That movie was both awesome and kinda flat at the same time.

Hassle free or statuesque female headswop and a black or white plus neon pj would make a nice programme or iso.

Just out of curiosity, is this a whim or a full scale project you've got in mind?

cheers
