From JuanM - Special Agents (10 Points)


 Here is my second entry for The Challenge, in the first week! I have been able to paint two 28mm models from Crooked Dice, very nice figures:



The little girl, from Haslefree Miniatures, is a veteran from a previous Challenge and is here only to compare her with the Crooked Dice models. Perfectly compatible, I think.

These figures, Melody Lake and Mr Killan, are very easy to paint, and a pleasure to do it, clean and simple, so they have been a perfect side distraction from my main objectives... I could use them in a Zombie game or in a 7TV game if I buy that ruleset, but not at the moment. Now, they have been only a test about painting civilians (and more white clothes), and 10 points.

Cheers!!!
You've done great work on these Juan!  I particularly like the face on Mr. Killan - he has a very pensive expression. Where are these character from? I'm assuming they must be from a TV series. Anyway, they are very cool.

Now, we seem to be experiencing a long silence from your dueling partner Mr. Hawkins... When will he give fire?
