7TV Female Agent

Another random figure I picked up to use for 7TV gaming a female spy with an MP40 a bit WW2 you might say and you'd be partially right as the figure is from Warm Acre Games Hour of Glory Range a Female Partizan figure. however I imagine a lot of WW2 weapons where still around and available so i've change the clothing colours so they are more 70's. I think she will fit in well with all sorts of casts.

Thats it for this week the lurgy from the week before has developed into a really annoying cough and cold so have not felt like doing much at all this week. Hopefully things will pick up next week.

  2. You could also argue that you were going for a realistic depiction of spy *movies* - and everyone knows that film producers in the '70s weren't at all bothered with historical realism!

    After all, if an Imperial stormtrooper can run around with an MG34 then your female spy's weapon looks completely appropriate :-) .

  5. Looks good. That model fits in well with the 7TV/KKBB feel. A good spot, and a good paint job.

  7. Don't worry about the MP40. As long as you are happy with it sod everyone else! Nicely painted figure and no doubt a versatile figure with many spy-fi uses.

    There is a nasty bug going around hope you get well soon.

  9. I can remember seeing MP40s being used by the bad guys in 1970's shows like "The Champions" and "Department S" so I wouldn't sweat it too much, Simon.

  10. I guess the props department probably had loads hanging around from all the war movies in the 60's and 70's, or maybe even decommissioned ones from the war?

  14. Looking forward to a bat rep on this. I do like the era and would like to see how the game mechanic operates. Also think I could re-use my EOTD urban landscape for it. Will keep watching with interest.
