Men in Black meet Bond meet Zombicide meet Yakuza

I’d painted up these fine gentlemen from Rebel Minis a few months ago. What are they? Take your pick from;

  • Men-in-Black
  • Mr Smiths (the Matrix)
  • 70’s Gangsters (or Reservoir Dogs)
  • Yakuza
  • Government agents

What prompted the photos and post was finally coming across some suitable vehicles. I’d been keeping an eye out for such and these 1964 Lincoln Continental’s (from the Bond film Goldfinger, apparently) suited the bill nicely.

A few Japanese inspired card buildings make good ‘blockers’ for the Zombicide tiles I’ve thought about using for such modern 15mm encounters (‘blocking’ building interiors where ‘scaled’ art is a bit more jarring – 28mm –  and/or ‘bloody’ – well over the top – than anything on the streets).

Bit too much bling.

I should explain I was seeing how coloured tiddlywinks worked as under-base identifiers – in this case to identify the ‘samey’ miniatures from one another but could also be used as status or level indicators (i.e. One Page Rules or Stargrunt).
