Populating Havensburgh 20 (Hasslefree Miniatures Tony (b))

Just a single figure this week, but its a good one, Tony (b) from Hasslefree.  Hasslefree miniatures are known for being a cut above the competition, so its fair that I'll review them on their own I think.  Also this figure is almost certain to be featured in my eventual campaign as he is a close representation of one of my closest friends.   He's the type of friend that I wouldn't be all that surprised to find out that he had all this gear on hand "just in case".

                            

So Tony (b) is armed with a couple of Mac-10s.  Incidentally this is my least favourite Hasslefree weapon.   They look a little too SciFi for me, and are quite oversized for a sub machinegun.  Oh well, they are also passable as large calibre pistols I guess.  He is also decked out in body armour and many extra clips of ammo.   I'm pretty happy with the paintjob over all, except for the camo on the pants.  I copied a simple camo technique from the Foundry Painting Guide, and while it was simple and looks passable, I'm not completely sold on the white dots.  I won't be changing it now, but I doubt I'll use it again.


I just wanted to show a close up of the glasses, as they do transition from white to blue, though it was tough to get this to show in pics.  Now that I have a pic this close, I wish I had thinned the paints out more!

    1. He does! But the fact the he is based off of Ed from Shaun of the Dead, adds a little bit of a foolishness to him as well, I find.

  3. Wow! Nice model you've got here.
    An excellent paintjob.. If you're not convinced about the white dots, why don't you try white a "bone" color next time, being more subdued, perhaps, you'll like it more?? ;)

    1. I may try the bone colour. I've also had tips such as circling the dots in black.

  4. I do like their mini's. You have done a stellar job on painting him up and I wouldn't mind having this guy at my back during the apocalypse!

  6. Great looking figure and paintjob Adam. I'm not keen on the Mac 10 either I only have the Grant figure and I would have to agree it looks a little to sci-fi. The white dots they seem a bit bright maybe? Perhaps a thin wash of the colour underneath may blend them in better.

    1. I've had a few tips that I may try for the dots. We'll see how it comes out.

  7. He is a great figure and having the type of friend who just happens to have all this gear on hand "just in case" is exactly the sort of friend you want in a zombie apocalypse. I totally agree with you about the SMGs. Hasslefree may describe them as MAC-10s but they certainly aren't. I'd glass them as either BA Machine Pistols or BA SMGs. The stats for both appear in After The Horsemen.

  9. Nice work! I think the camo generally looks ok, and on the actual scheme it's based off the dots are pretty bright anyway. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you. I think it is just I am not so familiar with the camo in general.
