Shut it!

Shut it!

Stop! You are surrounded by Armed Bastards!
- DCI Gene Hunt

Would anybody interested in contributing to a set of British cops & robbers. These chaps would be useful for Cops & Robbers game, Winter of '79 and as armed civilians for the more usual Cold War stuff. Elheim already produce a set of 70s detectives that are a good match for the Professionals.

Regan & Carter

Trying to find an image of Regan with a pickaxe handle, can't seem to track it down.

Carter II
Image

Something slightly differant from the blagger with sawnoff pose.

Krays
Image

Again, a slightly unusual pose.

Painting paisley would be a bit of challenge.

A couple of nice sculpts of Bolly and Chaz for Michi to paint would be sweet too... But perhaps off topic. :roll:

An 'all bastards' set would be tops.

Would defintiely find a use (probably many uses) for them :D Not sure that funds are such that I could put much towards a comission though!

Well, I could put in £40 in, which is two figures. If you could put in £20, that's another. At which point we're half way there.

Unless we use the same figure for the Krays - I mean they were twins.

In which case we're more than half way.

I'd say to go for 2 kray twins - 1 with thee sword, and one with a sterling looking a bit like this

I'll have to have a think about the £20, but I might be able to go for it...

Always liked the Guv! I already have a few figures in 28mm but 20mm sounds really tempting to me. Worth a think. How many sculpts were you thinking of?

Well, I think 5 figures have been proposed so far (with 4 'funded' to use a kick-starterism), I'd certainly be interested in more but it all comes down to how many people are prepared to fund... If anything takes your fancy in particular (especially to the extent you're prepared to put £20 in to see the fgure sculpted!), post some pictures up and see what folks think :)

So far I see it the poses that have been suggested so far are.

1. Kray twin with sword
2. Kray twin with sterling - CL Decker
3. Gene Hunt in overcoat and gloves - CL Decker
4. DI Regan with pickaxe handle - The Questing Vole
5. DS Carter (no firm pose) - ideas chaps?
6. Carter of Get Carter with shotgun - CL Decker

7. Bill Savage in leather jacket with shotgun - The Questing Vole

I would be eager to add Bill Savage of Invasion! (2000AD strip where a shot wielding truck driver leads Resistance against invading Soviets)

Image

I think that would be a figure set to be proud of and that would offer a lot of possibilities for games. I'm in for £40, but I'm not ties to specific figures. If you're interested in this set, could we get a firm commitment in this thread? Also not every figure may get funded so if you're interested in a particular figure indicate a preference. I'm more interested in the set as a whole so, so I'll find whatever doesn't get funded to the tune of £40.

Yours

The Vole

Well, I reckon I can go the 40 too. :thumbsup: If I had to make a preference it would be Gene Genie but I would buy all of them except the sword toting Kray brothers. Where and when do I ante up?

Seven figures total.

CL Decker is in for the Gene Jeanie. Six left.

CL Decker is in for one additional figure (yet to be determined). Five left.

I'm in for two (yet to be determined) Three left.

MajorMike is in for one other figures (yet to be determined) Two left.

LazyDragon are you in or out?

I'll go another 20 to make "Get Carter w/ Shotgun" a reality also.

Splendid - I'm plumping for DI Regan and Bill Savage, which leaves us with two figures left.

1. Kray twin with sabre
2. DS Carter

Major Mike has declared his intention to put himself down for £20, so he'll have the choice of completing either the Krays set or the Sweeney.

I'm not quite grasping this if someone puts £20 in what are they gonna get figure wise, just the 1 or 1 of each ? Dougie
