The latest thing from Q branch; called a radio.

As soon as I saw the greens on Hasslefree Facebook page this guy was just a 'MUST' get! I love Bond films anyway and Skyfall is by far the best Craig Bond Film. This 'not' Mr.Craig sculpt is as always fantastic work from the super talented Mr.Kevin White. It really is a fantastic sculpt and captures the character portrayed perfectly.

So saving up some dosh and taking advantage of the Salute offer (those not going) I ordered Alexander, Finn and chose another version of Morgan as my freebie only to decide she would make quite a good sidekick for Alexander.

The blue turned out lighter than I wanted but I still really like it this has got to be my all time favourite Hasslefree sculpt.










Scale Comparison shot as you can see Morgan is a short lady though she's not wearing heels either!

    1. Its a lovely figure, I hope they do some more spy type figures. Le Chiffre would be awesome.

  2. I think the blue is just right mate and they are a lovely couple (of minis). I know what you mean about Kev Whites sculpts and especially this "not" James Bond. Top work btw

  4. Nice figure and painting!
    I used to prefer Sean, but Daniel Craig and the last three Bond films have been amazing. Skyfall is now my favorite Bond film!
    I'll have to track this fig down, and it'll be a good reason to snatch up the hasslefree spec op boys too!

    1. Thanks David, I like most of the bonds tbh Pierce Brosnan is the only one I'm not so sure about. Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace where ok for and I've watched them a couple of times its not so much the actor but the stories.

      Skyfall is just awesome in so many ways the little quips, the classic bond car. Silva is just an awesome villain character as well. I've watched Skyfall at least 6 times and never tire of it.

  5. The not-Daniel Craig figure is a superb sculpt. Morgan isn't bad either. She was one of the very first HF figures I bought and painted. The two go together very well, Simon.

    1. Thanks Bryan, I hadn't intended on using them just put them next to each other when doing the bases and I though ooo the look good together.

  6. Great figure. What do you mean, not Daniel Craig.... are you sure? It looks like it to me. Maybe he has a twin brother or something. I agree with Pete (panzerkaput) the blue is just right. Excellent brush work as always.

    2. Just noticed the NEW banner. I like it. Looks really good and about as James Bond as you can get using miniatures. Maybe it needs a film title

      "GoldBlogger!" or "Live and Let Blog" or "On her Majesty's Blogging Service" I know you'll come up with the Right title.! Just for the picture not the whole Blog.

    1. My latest post. Was a sort of mini AAR. I will do a proper one once i'm more familiar with the rules. It takes along time to do batrep taking notes and photos. Whilst learning the rules I don't tend to bother.
