As promised last time, I'm going to review Black Cat Bases' 28mm scale female gangstas - the Sun Valley Bulldog Babes.These will perfectly complement BCB's Da Dowgs gang or Bobby Jackson's Thugz.
Next to her is Sita Farah and you don't often see bald females. She has quite a butch look going on, with her black vest, urban camouflage combat pants and boots. She casually carries a sawn-off pump-action shotgun. I'm betting she's as hard as nails. She just looks like someone you don't want to mess with.
The same can be said about the gangsta bitch in the centre of the group. This is Missy Maffia. Missy is short for Melissa. This woman is full of bad attitude. Her hair has been cut short and styled into corn rows. She's into her gold jewellry with her bracelets, necklace and ear-rings all on display. She also carries a revolver but hers is a much larger one than Ebony's, possibly a .44 Magnum. I'd class it as a Big Ass Pistol. She is one big bad momma!
Moving on, we come to Melesha James, the babe of the group. She is nicely posed fitting a new ammo clip into her 9mm pistol. You very rarely see armed figures reloading. Melesha would appear to be a keep fit fanatic, going off her sporty appearance. It's a nice touch that the straps of her T-shirt are sliding down her arms, to give a flash of her bra. She appears to be the least intimidating member of the gang... but be aware, appearances can be deceptive!
Last in line is Beverley "Bang Bang" Osoteku, whom I have appointed as leader of this gang. She has been sculpted in a very dynamic pose that is full of movement. For that reason alone, she is my favourite figure in this set. "Bang Bang" is so named for her choice of using two pistols in combat. She is firing one of them gangsta style, which isn't a very clever move, as I explained last time. Even so, I like this figure a lot!
This set is just as good as the "Da Dowgs" gangstas that I reviewed last time and they fit together so well. The sculpting of them is just spot on and there's not one bad figure amongst them. Even the Bulldog is a cracking good sculpt. Thanks to these sets I'm building up a nice collection of dogs of different breeds. As with "Da Dowgs" you can buy the humans for £3.00 each and the dog for £2.00, but by far and away, your best bet is to buy all six as a set for just £12.00. It's another winner from Black Cat Bases.
