Rogue Miniatures Riggs and Murtagh

So first up in this month hero theme is Riggs and Murtaugh of course from Lethal Weapon (Also a Christmas movie Die Hard fans) These are sold by Rogue miniatures. (There are issue with the website currently but you can contact them through there Facebook Page to Order)

These are both really nicely detailed sculpts to paint from the details on Riggs Jacket to the little touches like the belt holster, wedding band and tie pin on Murtaugh. At first I thought Murtaugh was perhaps a bit to tall but looking it up he is 6 ft 4 inches!! So fits well really.

I have ideas now for some 8TV using these guys it would make a fun cast with some regular cops as back up. Just need a beat up station wagon for them to ride around in.

  4. Brilliant Simon! I've not heard of this company before, definitely going to check them out.
    With the station wagon you're going to have to proxy a Joe Pesci figure 😃

    1. Ha yeah that would be a cool idea. Will have to see whats out there for me to use. I could use him as a Danger Magnet Co Star. The Station wagon is proving tricky to find and they aren't cheap!

      Thanks very much they were so cool todo.

  14. Okay Simon, these are frikken cool. Didn't realise someone had made this pair and these look spot on.

    Now you need some Afrikaans blonde blokes for them to have a shoot-out with.
