After last couple of weeks making statues (and building scenery and vehicles before that) I needed a change. I just wanted to paint something; something easy, a few minis, preferably living people!
Fortunately, the lead mountain provides anything you may need in such a case. I had the Deck Department from Statuesque Miniatures waiting for a looong time. Wow, what a bunch of minis. They are gorgeous. They have a quality in their design that makes them useful both for a kind of pulp-ish ambientation as well for a sci-fi setting. So I knew I wanted them to configure a Spaceport crew.
Enough chat, here you have them:
I can't praise the sculpts enough, they are certainly sweet. These are my first minis from Statuesque and I'm delighted. It's a shame the pic's are awful as usual, most of the tones and highlights are lost; my bad. They don't wear extremely high boots, promise, it's the kneepad on the jumpsuits, and it's supposed to look in a different black than the boots. Sigh.
Here you have the four of them:
A size comparison shot, which I always find interesting:
Those in between are Colony 87, Hasslefree and Colony 87 again. They match perfectly, so I'm most definitely happy with the purchase :)

Not only the minis are great, but it was the right time for me, if you know what I mean. A small, closed project, easy to take on and some fresh air after my latest stuff. I think I'll be delving into the lead mountain for some more stuff of the like :)
