"Alright. You Know The Drill."
This 28mm scale model of a Corporate Security Force operative is produced by "Anvil Industry" and can be downloaded for free as part of their Corporate Security Security Force bundle of STL (Standard Triangle Language) files from the "Anvil Digital Forge" "Patreon" subscription service. Consisting of a multi-shelled male body standing to attention armed with a shotgun close to the chest, with standard Regiments neck joint and closed visors male helmeted head, the miniature was produced using "Elegoo" Water Washable Resin on a Mars 3 Pro 3D Printer.
Initally primed using a couple of layers of "Vallejo" Stormy Blue and shaded with "Citadel" Nuln Oil, all of the figure's boots, body armour, firearm and visor were later base-coated with Abaddon Black. The policeman's footwear and protective plates were then dry-brushed with "Vallejo" Heavy Charcoal and shaded with a splash of "Citadel" Nuln Oil.
So as to add some colour to the distinctly dark-looking model, I applied a combination of "Vallejo" Gunmetal and "Citadel" Nuln Oil to the operative's shotgun and parts of his helmet. In addition, I used some "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna and "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade on his belt, as well as "Vallejo" Heavy Red and "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson on two large cartridges positioned at the back of the lawman's belt.
To be honest this miniature has been close to being binned a number of times as I've really struggled to find a palette I liked for him. At one point I had actually 'picked out' a number of the model's armour plates in "Vallejo" Gunmetal, "Citadel" Nuln Oil and the Contrast paint Skeleton Horde. But I didn't think this looked right so eventually went with the tried and tested dark blue/black uniform worn by the majority of modern-day Police specialist riot teams.
Alongside the first of several planned Corporate Security Force operatives by "Anvil Industry" I have also completed another 28mm scale metal SpyBot by "Crooked Dice Game Design Studio". This tentacled mechanoid can be bought individually as SKU: MINI 649 or as part of the four-figure deal - DEAL 193. The single-cast model was predominantly pigmented using "Vallejo" Heavy Grey, "Citadel" Biel-Tan Green, "Vallejo" Gunmetal, "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade and "Mig Productions" Extreme Rust Wash so as to tie them in with my previously painted automatons.
Lastly, I've been busy printing and prepping many of the "Big Mr Tong". miniatures I want to get tabletop ready during the forthcoming Thirteenth Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge (AHPC). As I plan on ignoring all the event's side-quests this time around, I plan to work on several of the prolific sculptor's ten-figure ranges, including a wonderful troop of Village Militia who remind me of Terry Pratchett's Ankh-Morpork City Watch...
