This was one of the half-finished minis in my end of the year finish-it-up pile. When the news about David Bowie's death broke I pulled him out to finish him. Shadowrun first came out in 1989. This figure (originally a Ral Partha, now from Ironwind Metals) came out in 1993. At the time the future aesthetic was terribly 1980s, and all the male elves looked like Bowie's Goblin King from Jim Henson's movie "Labyrinth". He is a decker. This involves having actual computer implants in his skull and having to carry around, in his hands, a gigantic 1980s-style keyboard and computer, because the future is not wireless. Ah, well. I'm not sure how well the figures sold, since Shadowrun is not necessarily a game that lends itself to minis scale combat (being prone to car chases and virtual reality). I like them anyway, as a bit of '80s retro-futurism noir.
Looking at random stuff on Ironwind metals and I found this: http://ironwindmetals.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=7937 It's awesome, it's got bears, it's a chariot, it has bears! I know that IronWind has a lot of the older scuplts from companies which don't exist anymore, does this awesome set fall into that catagory? I'm curious about who sculpted it primarily, and to a lesser degree, who initially produced it. This one is definately going on my "must have list".
