Ranged weapons certainly exist, vehicles being the easiest example. They are in the minority though.
So many projects..... so little time.......

I dont think that anyone has suggested this yet, but surely no miniature TRON project - Legacy or otherwise - is complete without this Hasslefree figure:



Possibly not consistent with the rather stern sounding techno buddhist zen descarté utopian (TBZDU) tone that you described, but I know that I couldnt resist sticking a fat guy with a 'tache in the middle of it all.

Heh.  That model makes me laugh  lol

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.

I recently painted my DB Asterians in a quick, not-too-fiddly TRON-ish scheme.  



The heads are goofy, but they are separate on the restic models.  There are metal models in the Asterian DB range (the team booster pack is all metal), but the castings that I got were usable, but not great.

The humans are all restic and all a bit goofy in pose IMO.  Either or both teams could definitely work in your TBZDU context, but you will have your patience tested by the restic for sure, particularly on the humans (made with an earlier restic formula and .


I'll have to grab it on dvd.

I have seen a number of episodes.  Its not bad, but its not really great either.  Definitely required viewing if you are planning a project like this though.

How are your OSL skills Mark (mine are non-existent)?  This sounds like a project to hone them on.  Its an ambitious, but very cool sounding project overall.  Good luck :)

I was talking about carbines and lasers.

Ordered a few m2 and m3 nylon washers, been playing with a load of puppets of war eldar heads that Dwartist gave me a while back and a few clix supers have sacrificed themselves to the GRID.

;)


More later programmes!
