Crooked Dice Flamboyant Agents B

This pair of models is the second sculpt finished from the Heroes 2 blister (though two versions of the same figure). The Tough Detective in my previous post being the first.

 The left figure is obviously based on a Avenger and is the original figure as it comes in the Heroes 2 pack. It comes with an additional head and being a fan of King Arthur and his knights had to get me second one to do the alternative version. You have to cut the original head of which was the hardest part especially doing so with minimal damage.

I am still searching for a bald head with glasses to do my version of Merlin I have found the perfect body but am still searching for the head.

  1. That takes me back.... to my youth. I remember Seed (and Gambit and... can't remember character name but Joanna Lumley)

    Fantastic Nostalgia and wonderful painting.

    2. Yes indeed I loved watching the New Avengers and I have done my own versions of them. Nexus Miniatures have done the full set but i'm still waiting on mine to arrive due to some setbacks during the production of them. I do love this model though.

      Kingsman is really good I recommend a watch at least once.

  2. Tip-top stuff, Simon, on a pair of wonderfully characterful british secret servicemen. Marvellous. You really are cranking out these "Crooked Dice" minis this month :-)

  9. More C-D goodness! Hmm, a bald head with glasses shouldn't be so hard to find. I don't think there's anything like that in my bits box, but I might have a look?

    1. I can find plenty of bald heads its the glasses they seem to lack. They need to fit in with CD Sculpts as the main part is coming from Big Tam.
