Nexus Miniatures. British Agents and Freaks of Nature Operatives Review


Postman arrived yesterday with my order from Nexus Miniatures. The First two British Agents and both Freak of Nature Operatives. Ordered Thursday night and received on Saturday great service. The figures came in a sturdy box wrapped in bubble wrap in there own individual bags. Included with each miniatures is a 30mm lipped base.



They are all amazing looking sculpts the British Agents are my favourites from the first release with my love of spies but the F.O.N Agents are also just so nicely done I really can't wait to get stuck into them all.

First up the two British Agents. I really like the style of Ian Mountains sculpting and these will fit in well with the rest of my collection. The guy in the Tuxedo suit is armed with automatic pistol and can be used for many genre's. He'll be extremely useful I can think of a few head swaps already as well as different paint schemes! The guy in the roll neck shirt is armed with a very nice looking revolver and the shoulder holster just screams 60s/70s spy from the movies/tv series of that era. It is by far my favourite from the range so far and possibly my favourite from my whole collection of spies and agents I already own. I have been after a figure dressed like this for a long time. There are figures like him but they aren't to the same quality as this one. I want to do a version of one with a silenced pistol and again I have several heads I want to swap onto him. Will have to wait until he comes out in metal for that though. I'm on the hunt for pistols like those used in the man from U.N.C.L.E as I think both of these with a little bit of work will make great versions of Napolean and Kuryakin.



The Two F.O.N Operatives both come with there heads on a tab and I bought the Bonus pack which comes with the alt head sprue. I'm not sure which I'm going to be using yet. I shall have to pick up some more of these to use the alt heads on at some point. I think the jump suited nature of these guys gives a lot of choice for conversions with simple head swaps and different paint schemes I can think of a ton of different figures that can be created with these two and a couple more (One female) are planned so even more potential. Dammit why aren't they out in metal already! I already want a team of extra ordinary agents for 7TV all with special genetic powers.




The Bonus head sprue I think I shall have to just order another set of figures I think.

    1. There more agents both normal and F.O.N planned as well but they need to pay for themselves!

  8. Hah ... how appropriate ... a Bond banner (I am assuming that's what it is) for a secret agent miniature. :)

  9. I totally agree on sculptor's style, it fits this seventies - eighties theme really well somehow. Drew couldn't find a better sculptor for his project as they compliment 7TV so nicely.
