I think you'r eonto something exquisite, goo dthing about it is you can work on a level at a time and each won't require too much work. I'll be following that with a lot of interest !

Thanks - yes, that's what I was thinking. As soon as I settle on the construction of the 'background' all I need is a road, a bit of background scenery and a few obstacles (a car, rubbish bags, a skip, whatever) then a protagonist ('Ice' to begin with - see my last post) then for every 5 or so mooks I paint up, I can play - it's not like I need to finish loads of stuff for each 'leg' of the game.

Ainsty makes some facades/store fronts. Just an FYI, they might be useful.

Sorry Dr. Matt, missed the above - cheers, those could be useful. I'm moving house late July, so the terrain part of this project won't begin until after that.

Well, fresh from a resounding thrashing (and rightly so, Dr. Matt's entry was stunning) here's my first set of minis for this project:





It's been a while since I painted much 28mm, so having to tone down my aggressive 15mm highlighting took a bit of getting used to. Definitely not the best thing i've ever done, but I'm very pleased that I bashed out a group. Minis weren't all the best - love the Golgo Island ones but the casting wasn't 100% and the Casting Room ones are weird in parts (the highlight being the guy with a pink mohawk - he doesn't even have a right ear sculpted, I had to freehand one on!)

Oh now they look great! I have long harboured a similar idea for a project, after playing Shao-Lin's Road ('Kicker' in America) heaps with my mates.

I love the poses on them, nails the genre perfectly, and great job on the paint jobs. Looking forward to seeing some conveyor belt terrain too.
