Rebel Minis for Throwdown
I've been working hard playing and writing the rules for Throwdown a lot lately. I needed some figures that weren't "space riflemen" and picked up a pack of Gang Task Force from Rebel Minis, along with some skeleton pirates and Gun Clerics.
I really like the figures, the only letdown is that they obviously have the same legs. This isn't too big an issue though as they at least have sci-fi looking kneepads etc, so overall I'm very happy with the purchase.
I have painted them as a free trader crew in military tones. I have a 2 left, one half-done with an uninspiring jacket (Charadon granite does not highlight up well at this scale) and one in a cap at undercoat stage.
The bases are a little schizophrenic, being both brown and grey. It means they don't look wrong with any of my other figures, and I'm going to stick with this style for a bit.
Thanks for looking!
