IntroductionThis will be just a short post tonight, as I've not been doing much recently (related to the hobby, at any rate). I've nothing new to show, so here are some older figures of mine that haven't been made public before, so far as I remember.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away I saw that Heresy Miniatures produced a set of 28mm figures that are collectively referred to as "The Inspectors". These are delightful miniatures and I bought a set just because I liked them. Having said that, they could be used for almost any modern or near future government or corporate types. I've painted mine in a style that is deliberately reminiscent of the officers of the Imperial Navy in Star Wars...

Next in like is "Knuckles". I've no idea what his real name is, but I suspect that this guy enjoys discovering minor transgressions in his job as an inspector. Woe betide the poor victim who falls foul of this giant!
In the middle, Kane is examining a data pad and listening to instructions over his headset. I imagine that he's a stickler for rules and regulations; he will check everything very thoroughly indeed.
In contrast, Bob has been in the job too long. He's not really interested in anything except making life easy for himself as he waits for retirement. Smugglers or infiltrators will find him an easy touch, I think.
Finally, Camille is the new recruit. She's still quite unsure of herself and possibly a bit naive as well.
- All of these figures have shoulder patches which display a logo; there is a larger version of this symbol at the top of this article. It's traditional to invent a fictional corporation (usually evil) and associate goons such as these with that entity, but I haven't really got round to doing that yet. I have the logo on the figures, but no names for the evil company for which they work.
- The bases are all plastic and come from Champ Industries. This is an American producer with a small, but very nice, range of 25mm bases. Individually the bases are very cheap, though as always intercontinental postage is a killer if you're not already in North America. I bought my bases many years ago, so I've no idea if this company is still operating.
