Crooked Dice Tough Detective

This Tough Detective is from a mixed pack of Heroes. Hero Pack 2 is a varied group containing a Flamboyant Agent, Unearthly Traveller, Military Mind and Tough Detective. I've not done much with the others yet only the Flamboyant agent has been cleaned and base so far. (I picked up an extra as he comes with an alternate head.

Anyway previously I had painted up some Officers from the Force in Manchester this time the Tough Detective is part of the Metropolitan Police's Flying Squad and his Detective Sergeant (converted from Lionel from the United Radionics cast).

I experimented a bit with the tough detective's shirt I used Army Painter Blue tone to build up the colour over the Cold Grey basecoat. It has turned out quite good I may have to experiment more with this in future.




 The clothes for the Detective Sergeant were pretty spot on and the hair would pass so in the end I just gave him a shave removing the facial hair with a file. I think he is quite passable if a little rough looking.

  12. I've always liked these figures, but felt that the mixture of archetypes in some of the character packs was a bit eclectic. Hmm, I wonder how these detectives would mix with miniatures from Killer B's "Geezers" range?

    1. There very nice. If you order direct though you can pick just the single figures. I ordered an extra copy of one of the figures from this pack just to convert.
