Killer B Games TNT Thompson

Well I've got to say this week has been Feckin terrible. The lovely lady Brummie's car broke down on Monday morning. Once a mechanic looked at it the cambelt had gone so £500/600 to fix the car is now scrap metal as its more to fix it than the cars worth. What is more annoying is we shelled £150 to get it through its M.O.T 3 weeks prior ffs! So piggy banks and savings emptied and new car acquired (well new to us anyway) on Wednesday after spending most the week trawling all the car sales sites and used car forecourts. So thinking great! things can calm down a bit my own company car a Vauxhall Insignia broke down on the motorway Thursday lunch time and has been in the garage since! Feckin Cars!!!!!!!

Anyway rant over finished off a few bits and bobs here and there over the week. Another Killer B Games Geezers Royale sculpt this time TNT Thompson. I think he makes a good commando leader or action hero type. There are rumours of more troops similar to him but with wool caps rather than the balaclavas on the way from Killer B Games. I think he would make a good terrorist as well. I can't help but think he looks a little like Beachhead from G.I Joe in appearance.

The camo is based on the 80s DPM colours but not so much the pattern. Painting wise I've done very little this week. I did get a single Banished Knight for the Relics game finished though he needs varnishing before I can add all the tufts and other foliage to the base.

So TFIF! Have a good weekend folks Brummie out!

  1. Great looking mini Simon.
    He'd definitely look like a terrorist in darker colours. Pretty versatile. Sorry to hear about your car troubles, when they go wrong they can go really wrong.

  2. Sorry to hear about your car woes Simon - the joys of motoring apparently! Hopefully things will settle down once your company car returns home. That's a cracking mini you've painted there and yet again I find you tempting me with yet another company and range I was oblivious too!! Please stop :-)

  3. Oof! Cars are evil things.

    TNT Thompson could also be a fine (If painted in greys) Action Force Firefly as well.

  10. A great job mate, very splendid indeed, and I totally agree with the beachhead vibe - and funnily enough, Beachhead may be among my top 5 or even top 3 GI Joe characters. :)

    Sorry to hear about the car troubles, hopefully things a back on course ASAP. :)

    1. Cheers dude. Yes Beach head was one of my favourites along with Flint and Shipwreck.

      Well we have new car and mines back outside the house after having a sensor replaced on the exhaust. So i'm hoping after this weekend things can calm down and get back on track a bit.

  12. Went through the vehicle chaos myself! Always seems to happen when $ and schedules are tight too. Very nice figure though, he would be a good Beachhead, or Firefly too!

    1. Yes indeed its never convenient! Its more annoying that there was no warning signs it just went!

      Quite a versatile figure. Looking forward to seeing what the troopers look like when they get released.

  13. A great new character, Simon. Love the colors and the stitch working on the coat and mask. Bummer about the car expenses - something I wish I didn't have to depend on so much too.
