Foundry Miss Heaven and Miss Hell

Here are a couple of 28mm scale Foundry figures that I suspect very few of you will have seen before. They are Miss Heaven and Miss Hell and they were a promotional freebie given away to anyone who bought all eight sets of figures from the second batch of Street Violence figures, which were collectively known as "Down on the Killing Floor." Sadly, the offer is no longer in effect, and just like SWAT Sergeant Hall from the first batch of Street Violence figures and three of the Slippery Dwarfs from the third set, Miss Heaven and Miss Hell are out of production.
Miss Heaven is dressed in a skimpy white costume. Her wings are purely decorative. Note the blonde streak in her hair. Her halo is just a metal ring that she wears on her head like a pair of "Deeley Boppers" (who remembers them?). She is armed with a 5.56mm M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, also known as the FN MINIMI, the most widespread LMG at the dawn of the 21st century.
Miss Hell wears a sexy red devil's costume with horns, wings and tail. She is wearing a fishnet body suit underneath her devil's costume. She holds a 9mm Heckler and Koch MP5KA5 Machine Pistol in her right hand a small trident in her left hand.
These are two lovely figures and it is a great shame that they are no longer available. I use them as part of my large gang of Foundry Street Girls, where they fit in perfectly well.

    1. That would be quite a coincidence if Chris did buy your figures, Weird WW2.

  3. Even more figures I have no use for but would buy anyway! Although they doo seem to suffer from cellulite on the legs. (I'm picky!!)

    1. Thanks, Simon. For the body stocking, I gave her a dark flesh wash then drew on the fish net pattern with a thin nibbed Rotring pen.

  5. Nice! They're definitely outside of your normal reviews, and I have to say, I like them.

    1. Well, my last couple of posts have been about OOP figures, so it seemed appropriate to add these here, Jon.

    1. You'll be pleased to know she's currently single, Fran. Thinking of checking out her Pearly Gate, are you?

    1. Thanks, Joe. I can think of lots of uses for them. Maybe not a lot of use in ATZ but certainly in other games.

  10. I've never seen these figures before thanks for showing them. Can we get a group shot of your street girls? Nice work on the body stocking.

  12. Lovely miniatures. I guess you bought the 8 packs of foundry street violence minis just to get these two beauties! :)

    1. I must admit the chance to get these two lovely ladies was a huge deciding factor in buying all eight sets. Guilty as charged, m'lud!

  13. Very cool and unique figures. Never understood why companies just stop producing certain miniatures altogether.

    1. Yes, it is a nuisance when they do that.
