Moonraker minis for gangs and.. stuff.

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I got a bunch of Moonrakers almost free minis. Didn't expect much, but these are really not getting the credit they are due on the website images. 

Here they are:

It's time to slap some paint on them, and I sort of want these fellows to be more colourful than my existing gangs. Here are some hair color testing on the first few lucky ones.:

I wondered if these were maybe molds purchased from another company because some look really familiar.

 

Went to the site and realized, most of this must be Mark Copplestone's work. His style is very recognizable.

 

Some of these look like slightly less refined versions of things he seems to have perfected for his own store. Nonetheless, it's very cool stuff.

Em4, moonraker and copplestone sell a lot of the same sculpts. Not sure what the connections is.

Their "Suits" minis "Female Reporter" and "Handycam Operator" are old Grenadier Shadowrun figures. 

 

I recognize them from Mirliton Miniatures, in Italy, which sells a lot of old Grenadier figures.  Mirliton sells those two as part of a set called (in their quaint, not-quite-properly-translated English) "Interview to Rebels".

Mark has done work with Artizan and Foundry in the past. He's a go-to guy for UK makers, so not surprised.

 

I've always liked his stuff. It's simple, but it's got character.

Before and after washing. some highlights yet to be done. For some reason this ganger reminds me of the gangster from the movie Chappie. :)

Wow, those make great Necromunda figures. I'd be glad to get them for 'almost free'!

Don't get much cheaper than £1.50 a mini.

And here's Christmas with his green haired buddy. He's called that because he dresses like a Christmas tree.. And likes to hang colourful Escher hair in his belt. All, apart from the flamer, still need a good drybrush and some highlights:

Another WIP pic. The shotgunner has been drybrushed and highlighted. The other two still need that. And they all need to be dirtied up a bit. Then they're done, ready for basing.:
