Killer B Games Henchman

Well I accidentally spotted these the other day whilst searching for a figure to use for a conversion. I noticed a new section called Geezers Royale on the store so being intrigued had a look. I instantly just had to have them all with my love of bond movies, books and other spy fi stuff. Ordered on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend and arrived on the following Wednesday superb speedy service imo. I picked up one of each of the characters as well as a cool looking MJ-12 agent from the preview section and according to the owner (on a Lead Adventure forum thread) there will be some more commando types coming soon. As mentioned arrived very promptly postage was £1.50 bargain! Nice clean castings with just the usual bit of preparation to get them ready for painting. They are perhaps slightly different style sculpting wise to most 28mm minis having slightly bigger heads and being a tiny bit smaller in height but I think they stand up really well with all my other figs.

TNT Thompson is probably the next nearest to being completed but we'll see what happens the next time I pick up the brushes as I have several at a similar level of completion.

There is a set of standalone rules as well which I may have to pick up and have a try with.

But anyway enough waffling I have some Secret agent throttling to do :)









Just so you have an idea when compared with a few other ranges. I am not to fussed at mixing ranges but I know some can get bothered by it.



Crooked, Hasslefree and Killer B

  2. Yes, he's definitely a "Jaws" lookalike. Cool find, Simon.

    1. I think with Jaws you can get away with it to some extent. But I'm not fussed.

  4. Great find and paint-job Simon. What a cracking model on a top rate Bond baddie/goodie :-)

  5. You say that you have some secret agent throttling to do and yet you're waffling about it? Just do it already; enough monologuing :-) !

    1. Thanks very much. There is a great number of henchmen that I like but he is top of my list.

  8. Just by the heft and pose I had identifies this bond villain. My thought was confirmed when I clicked the pic for a close up.
    I like this figure a lot and the way he is painted is superb very much in keeping with a true (misguided) Villain.
    Excellent job mate.

    1. Thanks very much mate. I really enjoyed painting this guy I think he is one of the most iconic villains.

  9. Great work. I am not a huge fan of Killer B's stuff, but your paint job makes this look a lot better than I would expect from the range, so I think that tells me you have done a top-notch job. :)

  11. Jaws was my fav Bond Goon from the flicks. Your's is very nicely done! Do they also sell his blonde girlfriend?

    1. Thanks very much! No I don't think they do a specific figure but I could probably find one though :)

  12. He's no Oddjob, but Jaws is a top tier henchman all the same. Great job, Simon.

    1. Thanks Finch. Oddjob was another good one I have a spot on model for him though. Jaws has been more elusive.

  13. Nice figure and good painting. I always though jaws was a scary villain when I was younger :). I do like the idea of gaming James bond but not sure when I will ever get the time :(

    1. Thanks Chris. Yeah I have to agree him and Tee Hee where among the scarier villains I think its the augmentations to the bodies that do it.
