Statuesque Miniatures Golgo Satana

Well I finished this figure twice this week. Originally I painted her up with the intention of starting a new faction completely. But unable to find some feisty catsuit minions I have had to rethink my plans. So ended up changing the blue for orange to match my Wild Ducks cast I did before. My thinking coming mainly from the fact the Crooked Dice have just released and plan to release some of there own Soldiers (armed with Sterlings and SLR's) there fantastic minis and I want a force of these two which then leaves out my Wild Ducks as going spare so they are going to be converted into a Despotic Dictator's minion cast instead with Golgo as Co star as a jack booted sadist or Double agent character. The Wild Ducks will get a bit of restructuring they will get new attack dogs (Dobermans I think) and some new additions such as machine gun and bazooka teams.

The Resurrection cast I mentioned before the Rising Eagle Society or R.E.S has been sidelined for now mainly because not being happy with any lady minions I can find for it. I'd love some similar to Golgo with normal heads or field caps with mp40 or a similar smg but can't find any that I like. The Ones I made look ok but they don't scratch the itch for it so the hunt will continue.

First off in blue!




Now in Orange and with the Wild Ducks :)



Some Pics for those that requested it of my whole Batman Crew and the one facing Pulp Citizen in a few weeks time.



Also this week the kickstarter has began for the Stag Riders and Warbears for the Shattered Crown game. (Or whichever Fantasy game you want to use them for) There an awesome price as well Stag riders are £5 Warbears £8 with various great deals for multiples as well as add ons for the heroes and infantry they have got made already go take a look!

  1. I love the paintjob Simon and actually I prefer the blue to the orange. As for lovely catsuit lasses have you looked at Wargame Foundry's Street Violent range as there a few catsuit ladies there

  2. Smokingly hot painting Simon, and I like both versions personally. She looks awesome. Thanks for the group shot. Well worth the wait imho and its clear just how very well you've consistently painted these minis. Terrific stuff and I'll wager they scare PulpCitizen every time you place them on the tabletop :-)

  11. I agree with others: the group shots are excellent. However, I do wonder if your search for perfection is getting in the way of playing games, perhaps?

    1. Thanks Hugh. Not really getting in the way at all as I have tons of ideas that get sparked off from the release off figures but never come to fruition. Besides this is just one cast choice from probably about 10-12 I can make out of my collection :D
