Internal Security Henchmen

These are Anvil Industries figures - on the brick of scrutiny as I didn't intend to do anything more with them.  (I've put them away already).  But photography in daylight shows up some defects which I didn't spot in the soft mood lighting which I'm painting in atm. 

Some of the people I work with use blue cut proof gloves.  Threw one on, more or less on a whim and decided that it looked OK and provided a point of visual interest.  But there's splodges where the blue is on the firearms and then there's grey on some boots which is way too much to be dust from the ground they're walking over.

and there's a couple of visors which are a bit sloppy.  And the camera has made the washes look a bit harsh at the hem of the trench coats, I was aiming for leather(y).

Aside from all that, they'll make for a decent bunch internal security types for some mover or shaker somewhere mid hive in the Grim Dark of the far future.


  1. That's the problem with cameras, they see needed touchups that the naked eye cannot (meaning you can most likely just skip em).

  2. Agree with Da Cheef - the camera makes mountains out of mole hills.

    Those are some superb figures though - love the high collared, button up look. Very much the dark menacing enforcer look.

  3. Yes, cameras and lighting is the bane of good painting. That aside, I like the leather coats. The boots could have been a bit darker or black. Otherwise, really nice models.

  4. Ha, the Brick of Scrutiny. Lovely stuff there!

  5. They look suitably efficient and lacking in humour - perfect for ISB.
