In my July 2012 Monthly Musings I told you about a parcel of goodies that I received from Ernie Huff in America. Amongst the stuff he sent me were five Victory Force 28mm scale Armed Office Workers with Gear from their SuburbaKnights range. He also sent me a Wizkids 28mm scale figure of Glimmer from The Hunger Games. I recently finished painting them and so, here they are.
Next up is the sole female of the group and she is depicted firing her Assault Rifle from the hip. She has a knife tucked into her right boot. Around her waist on a khaki belt are a few pouches and a water bottle. Her handbag is slung over her left shoulder.
One of the things that I love about this set is the fact that the figures are all different heights, as you would expect to find in real life. The female is obviously the smallest (28mm tall) and this guy is the tallest (35mm tall). I painted him as a dark African/American. He is carrying a fair bit of gear - two shoulder bags, a sleeping bag and a knife.
The blond guy has ditched his jacket. It must be a warm day as he is also wearing sunglasses. He is the best armed out of the group, as he also carries a pistol and a machete. He is equipped with a knapsack, a shoulder bag and a torch, which is clipped onto his shoulder bag.
The second African/American in the group is not as dark-skinned as his colleague. He is more coffee-coloured. (I love my Foundry flesh paints!) He carries a large shoulder bag, upon which is attached a water bottle and a small spade.
If Ernie hadn't sent me the armed office workers I would have bought them anyway. I think they are a terrific group of survivors to use in a zombie apocalypse game. Team Vampifan would welcome them with open arms. This set of five figures costs $17.95 from the Victory Force webstore. You can buy each figure individually at a cost of $4.00 per figure. Also, do note that these figures are available without the gear on and just carrying the firearms, both as a set and as individuals. I actually prefer them with the gear on. I have no idea of the price or availability of the Glimmer figure. I have seen her advertised on eBay for about $10.00.
