Modern Investigators, Spies, Thugs and Amateur Cricket Players

As I knew it would be pouring rain this morning (and I thus wouldn’t be getting up early for a ride) I stayed up a bit late last night and got some painting done….

I’ve been reading a lot of Hellboy and B.P.R.D. – and even tracked down a copy of the Hellboy Role-playing Game and Sourcebook - and have been thinking about running games inspired by those… maybe use some Cthulhu Now adventures I have – but run them with the players being agents of the B.P.R.D.?

Anyway, thinking about it all got me inspired to finish up a few modern-ish figures I’ve had haunting my un-painted boxes for some time…

Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

This first chap is from Artizan Designs “Kiss-Kiss, Bang-Bang” line.

More “Kiss-Kiss, Bang-Bang” figures, but these are manufactured by Copplestone Castings.

A few investigator-types from Wargames Foundry.

And finally the "Amateur Cricket Player" from Hasslefree Miniatures.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

As I mentioned it’s been raining all day, The kids are at my folks and Amanda’s off at an all-day yoga workshop – so I’m getting some MORE painting done! Stay tuned for that action. Mostly more Modern-ish Skirmish-Role-Playing-Adventure types. I have some more from Hasslefree Miniatures.  that will be PERFECT Cthulhu Now investigators!!

Stay Tuned for that!


  1. That cricket player is so cool!

  2. Were you subtly making a reference to Mercenaries, Spies & Private Eyes? :-)
