Nexus Miniatures SDZA British Agent no 2

Yep couldn't wait to get started on these guys. I found working with the resin surprisingly easy. I was a bit more careful preparing the figures than normal especially when filing/removing the odd mouldline. I had to spending longer washing them though as it once in soapy water it felt slimy. I guess there is either more of a release agent found on resin stuff than there is on normal metal/plastic but its really no bother. Undercoated easily enough and once decided on a theme I started on the British agent No 2. Besides doing the eyes I haven't started the others as yet. I need to decide how I'm doing the other suit and how the F.O.N jump suit colours are going to be.

Originally I planned for this chap to be blonde and even painted it so at first but I changed my mind to a sort of mousey brown colour instead.

  2. Ha, he even has one eyebrow raised! Lovely job on an excellent miniature. I still think that your bases are a bit plain, mind you :-) .

    1. Thank you. My bases are done intentionally simple in order to fit in multiple settings

  3. Excellent figure and paint job. I also like the raised eyebrow. I think your bases are just fine as they are. There is nothing wrong with them as far as I can see.

  8. Quite a character - his face is all attitude; and the black attire only adds to the flavor.

  10. The eighties still don't do it for me personally, but I love Ian Mountain's style.
    Great paintjob, as usual. I like the brown hair, they pop out more than blonde would.
