Regular Guys


Last night I was digging through my unpainted figure boxes and happened across my unpainted Harook. As it happened, I had just finished watching the last episode of Regular Show season 4 (I love Regular show)... I saw Mordecai.
I kept digging, feverishly looking for other figures I had that I could paint up to represent other characters...

Rigby is a RAFM Traveller Vagr, painted like a raccoon.
Benson is an Artcrime Nationlist trooper with a blob of putty to embiggen and en-rounden his head.
High Five Ghost is a Harook drone from the sniper pack, with the original flight pole removed and a paperclip in it's place.
Muscleman is a GZG Alien Merc, with hair sculpted with Pro-create.

I have a figure on order for Skips, and am currently converting Pops. If none of this means anything to you I apologize, but I had a lot of fun converting and painting this lot. Happy Easter Weekend folks!

    1. Thanks Fjodin! Each one is totally different in scheme, so it took a bit longer then normal to get them all completed, but I had a very productive day all around.

  2. Excellent!!!! OHHHHHHHH!!!!
    I love the regular show! They will make a great motley band of adventuring slackers.

  4. Hope you like the 80s, cartoons and weird!

  5. "High Five Ghost"... Hmm, that feels almost like the kind of name a Culture drone would give itself. So there you go, some cross-cross-pop-culture synergy ;)

    I too had to look up the Regular Show to understand the characters, but anyway I like the bluejay version of the Harook here. This is a fun little Scooby Gang (ooh, there's an idea!) and definitely up to your standards!

    1. Thanks Allison! I wanted them to work as a sci fi crew regardless of the inspiration, so the goal wasn't total accuracy, but a sly nod.

  6. Even if I didn't know the show I'd love this crew. Great job!

  7. Absolutely fantastic! Unfortunately I made the mistake of showing this to my son and now he is insisting I make up a set too. Going to need to find a suitable Rigby as not sure I can get the old Traveller figure anywhere. What are you using for Skips? Have you thought about the Wildthingians from 15mm.co.uk? Anyway, keep up the great work.

    1. Traveller fig should be available from RAFM.

    2. Just checked there, I'm UK based so may well have to order some more stuff to make it worthwhile. Thanks for the heads up.

    3. Thanks Rob! Skips is going to be a Khurasan Mistri island giant ape, and pops is being converted from a Rebel minis Irish hitman

  8. Absolutely awesome. I initially saw the paint jobs and hadn't read the text and saw the raccoon and blue jay and immediately thought, "Regular Show".

    Great project and a lot of fun.

  9. This is fun. I never thought of doing something like that. Not a big fan of the Regular show though. But well executed and neat paintjob anyway.
    Love the drone.

    1. Thanks Wouter! I used to have a reputation for doing offbeat themed forces. I guess it's coming back...

  11. Super swell nice really fine character cogitations and painting, Jacker! The little conversions are a sweet touch, Sir.

    1. Thanks Jay! The little conversions are for some reason the most satisfying. I wonder why that is?

  12. I don't know the show, but I love the selection of minis, each one a little masterpiece! A wonderful diverse set of figures, with great execution of painting. Does my raving jealousy show through?!

    1. Ha ha... Thanks GR! Having a strong simple color theme to stick to for each mini made it quite easy. I imagine there is a lot of scope in the world of cartoons to do this. I know Chris K did a bunch of figures based on GI Joe's Cobra...

    1. I have been away from the paint table since the weekend, but he's about 75% puttied. I'm still agonising over going for a helmet that he would fir into or his actual face.

  17. So great as always man! Can I ask what do you base the 15mm minis on?

    1. Just saw your comment... Oops! I base them on 20mm round plastic slotta bases from em-4 miniatures in the UK (available elsewhere, that's just where I buy them).
