"I Better Drive..."

"...Until you know your way around."

This 32mm scale FKMSA Battle Police Series 5 Sexycop is produced by "Papsikels Miniatures" and was downloaded for free as part of a set of STL (Standard Triangle Language) files from their "Patreon" RoboCorps March 2023 subscription service, The model was produced using "Elegoo" Water Washable Resin on a Mars 3 Pro 3D Printer and is clearly inspired by the "cybernetically-enhanced Detroit Police Department officer" in Paul Verhoeven's 1987 science fiction film "RoboCop".

The miniature was primed with "Citadel" Abaddon Black, and base coated in Sir Coates Silver from "Duncan Rhodes' Two Thin Coats" paint range. She was then shaded using Oblivion Black Wash and given a dry-brush of (more) Sir Coates Silver to help pick out all the female robot's detail. I next treated the entire figure to a watered down wash of "Citadel" Drakenhof Nightshade and a little Druchii Violet, before tying the entire colour scheme together with a second (lighter) dry-brush of Sir Coates Silver.

"The M4 tank went into combat in North Africa with the British Army at the Second Battle of El Alamein in 1942."

Due to wanting the Sexycop's pistol to stand out somewhat from the majority of the miniature's other metallic areas, I applied an additional splash of Oblivion Black Wash over the firearm. I also dabbed a little "Duncan Rhodes' Two Thin Coats" Ivory Tusk across the model's visible mouth, and later gave this tiny area a dash of "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade and Carroburg Crimson. Finally, the rest of the figure was blocked out with Doom Death Black.

Alongside the latest addition to my ever-growing collection of science-fiction film-based "Papsikels Miniatures", I have also finished a fifth 10mm metal American medium tank which used to be sold by “Pendraken Miniatures” as Code A10 - Sherman M4A4, no skirts, 75mm gun. As memory serves I bought half a dozen of these armoured vehicles so as to game "The Battle Of The Bulge" using an old version of the "Blitzkrieg Commander" rule-set. However, I now plan to simply use them for either some solo "Flames Of War" learning/familiarisation scenarios or a few fast-play tank battles using my 'tried & tested' homemade rules.

"Artisan Guild" WIPs - This pair of Orr'ugs Wolves have been primed and based layered

The model was initially treated to a mixture of "Vallejo" Surface Primer Black and "Citadel" Abaddon Black, before receiving two layers of "Vallejo" USA Olive Drab, a wash of "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade, and a dry-brush of (more) "Vallejo" USA Olive Drab. I then applied a combination of "Vallejo" Gunmetal and "Citadel" Nuln Oil to its tracks, before repainting some of its prominent wheel mechanisms with (even more) "Vallejo" USA Olive Drab and "Citadel" Reikland Fleshshade.

Lastly, I have impulsively 3D printed and primed two huge Orr'ugs Wolves by "Artisan Guild". These specimens of Canis lupus are 80mm from nose to tail, and have been attached to "Citadel" 50mm plastic circular bases. I don't admittedly have any plans for a Nomad Orr'ugs (or rather Wild Orc) army in "Age Of Fantasy" by "One Page Rules". But might be tempted to use the (15-point apiece) figures as Dire Wolves for an Undead force at some point. Furthermore, I'm hoping to use the miniatures as test-pieces for my fur dry-brushing/blending technique before I return to a unit of "Games Workshop" Warg Riders I started pigmenting late last year...
