Statuesque miniatures Sky Pirates

Ha told you my painting was a bit random at the moment. I have loved these minis since they were sneak peeked in September 2016. They didn't come out until Early last year but I snagged them straight away. I assembled them pretty quickly but as usual drifted off onto other things. So having a nothing urgentl needing painted I had a mooch in the to do box last week and dug these out spending an hour or so each day and they have trundled along at a fair clip finishing them off yesterday afternoon.

I picked up two copies of pack 2 and one copy of Pack 1. As you can see I added in Minerva who I painted in December last year (the Blond one with the eye patch). Minerva seems to fit in as a sort of senior trooper leader.

Plans at the moment are to them for 7TV though I will need to flesh them out with some more characters. The idea at the minute is that they are an Aerial/Acrobat travelling show But really this is a front and there true nature is that they are spies/mercenaries for hire.

I am going to try and use as many female Statuesque models as possible. So Pulp Girl, and Gauge will be added. I am tempted to squeeze in Bosun but will need somone for her to lead as otherwise may seem out of place I think however that the Classic Daughters of Shiva from Crooked Dice will fit in nicely.

Plans for them 'Heroic' cast wise are as follows

Pulp Girl (Tomorrow Person) Star and obviously the leader of the aerial troupe.
Has Psychic powers uses her powers to stun enemies.

Gauge (Crackpot inventor) obviously makes gadgets and maintains the planes etc

Minerva (Dependable Deputy) Leads the troopers

Troopers I am undecided on Soldiers seems to much. So most likely they will use Security Guard Profiles.

Bosun (Angel of Justice) will use her martial arts and I will swap her pistol for throwing stars or something.

Daughters of Shiva (Ninja) will be the acrobats/stunt ladies.

  11. I have been looking at these for a while and now thanks to you I REALLY need to get these. Statuesque Miniatures are very nice and I hope they will fit in with the Artizan Sky Pirates. *He twiddles with his moustache* "My evil plan is slowly coming together" (Insane cackling is hard of camera).

    1. They would fit in perfect with the Artizan ones. Funny you should mention those a friend of mine has the Artizan ones and we hope to have a Pulp cast off mine vs his.

  12. That's excellent work Simon ... and is it just me or is the 'eye-patch' girl a dead ringer for Kim Basinger.
