Apparently I have a few different genres of Sci-Fi I paint miniatures for... Warhammer 40K, Atomic Age Retro, and something near future sci-fi/cyberpunk a la Ghost in the Shell.

Anyway, this figure doesn't fit in my established threads so I might as well start a dedicated one.



"The Major" from MDP, apparently sculpted by Steve Buddle for a company called Elodie May. Closest miniature to the Stand Alone Complex version of Motoko Kusanagi.



Urban War militia figure (formerly VOID), an Antenociti's bot with a Statuesque head swap, and a Reaper spy, "Astrid".
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

Splendid painting and I'm surprised no one else has done one yet, what with the new film coming out and all  8) 8)

(apologies if someone has and I've missed it)

cheers

Statuesque heads are my favorite- I've used them on quite a few different things :)

Lovely! The bot is a very clever and subtle conversion indeed. Which scale head did you use (I have some of the Pulp scale heads sitting waiting to be used).

That Motoko is perfect. I'm also a fan of the Hasslefree one, but this one sure is more in line with SAC1. Excellent job.

Some nice work and good to see more cyberpunk stuff.

Zealot miniatures have the range now.

I know I could be quite 'dedicated' to her, myself.  ;)

Well done, Matt!

So consistent[ly] brilliant, one could come to take your work for granted, but one would be an arse.

Pulp Alley, but I'm hoping that Rogue Stars will work as well.

 lol That's interesting, after seeing this pic a friend of mine asked if my wife allowed me to spend time around women like her ;)

Great painting. The outfit is a little bit too... skimpy for my tastes ;)

Hasslefree's Hellboy/Marv could be a good base for a Batou conversion, no?
