In this second part of my review of my Apathetic Anarchists street gang I'm highlighting the punks, who make up the bulk of the gang. All of these figures were produced by Mongoose Publishing for their Gangs of Mega City One game. They proved quite controversial at the time they were released, due to the fact that they were made of a strange, hard plastic that proved resistant to polystyrene cement. I had to glue mine together with superglue. This made them unpopular with a lot of gamers and when Warlord Games started selling the GOMC1 figure range, this set was dropped. The idea of making multi-part perps is a great one, but if they were made from the same plastic as say for example, that used by Games Workshop or Mantic Games, I'm sure they would have been more popular. My own feelings on them is that I found them quite acceptable once made and I'm glad I have them but they were such a pain to glue together.
Next to him is Barry "Bazza" Blase, who is identical in every respect to Dougie Dull. Note how similar these Spit Guns are to the German WW2 MP40 Sub-Machine Gun.
At the far right is Pascal Passive, the gang's sniper. He is armed with a Laser Rifle (taken from a set of plastic Games Workshop Imperial Guardsmen) and he wears Pad Armour. He is also a Level:2 Punk Infantry Hero and has the following three Talents - Accurate, Brave and Crackshot. He is worth 175 Credits.
Standing alongside him is "Sluggish Sil" Slugg, who is also a Level:0 Punk Infantry Minion armed with a Handgun Pistol and a Knife. He wears no armour and he costs 35 Credits.
Finally, is Lester Listless, yet another Level:0 Punk Infantry Minion. He is armed with a Handgun Pistol and a Cleaver. He is unarmoured and he is worth 40 Credits.
For these figures I kept my paint palette to blues, browns and greens, which ties them in with the rest of the gang. I do not expect the Apathetic Anarchists to perform well against a team of Judges. I will make sure they outnumber the Judges both in terms of figures and Credits ratings but with so many Minions in their gang they ought to crumble easily. However, Major Apathy and the three heavy weapons specialists will prove to be dangerous and therefore, should be treated with caution. Expect to see this gang in action soon.
