These five beauties dressed in bikinis and high-heeled shoes make up the first of two sets of Foundry babes with guns. Starting at the far left of the two photos is Babs. I painted her with platinum blonde hair, a pink bikini and white shoes. She holds a 5.56mm Colt M16 Assault Rifle in her right hand.
To her left is the much paler-skinned Val. Redheads tend to be pale-skinned so I didn't want her to have a bronzed flesh body. She was mainly painted using Citadel Elf Flesh, with a mix of Citadel Skull White for the highlights. Besides, giving the girls diffent skin tones provides contrast for the group. Her bikini is lime green and her shoes black. She is armed with a 7.62mm Kalashnikov AK47 Assault Rifle and she is the only one of the five girls to hold her rifle two-handed, ready to fire. Note that she is left-handed.
In the centre of the group is Twinkle. I didn't choose these names - they're the names given to them by the folk at Foundry. Twinkle's white bikini and shoes contrast well with her bronzed flesh and brown hair. She is also armed with an AK47 Assault Rifle.
Standing to her left is Latino babe Jo. Jo's dusky skin tone was achieved by painting her with Citadel Bestial Brown and highlighting with Citadel Snakebite Leather. Her pale blue bikini and shoes, once again, provide a nice contrast. She, too, is a fan of Mr. Kalashnikov, arming herself with the ubiquitous AK47 Assault Rifle.
Last in line is Carron, looking over her left shoulder. She wears a red bikini and black strappy shoes. She has chosen a different rifle to her colleagues - a 7.62mm Heckler and Koch G3 Assault Rifle. It is unusual for Foundry to produce a set of figures with no variety in the weapon types. All carry Assault Rifles, only the manufacturer differs, which makes no difference whatsoever in a game like ATZ.
Although I like these figures a lot, I just can't see much use for them. They are very well sculpted and what red-blooded male wouldn't want to be surrounded by a bevy of armed beach babes? I can accept the notion of streetwalkers arming themselves to form a gang but not a bunch of beach babes. They'd probably work in a one-off scenario like the Marsden Beach Massacre but I couldn't see them surviving in a campaign. Mind you, if you stray away from the world of horror, they'd be ideal as a group of bodyguards to an evil mastermind in a James Bond or Austin Powers type scenario! If you think you can find a use for them, they cost £10.00 for all five figures.
