Over the weekend I received a pack of re-issued Metal Magic Spacelords Adventurers. Doug at EM4 Miniatures has recently been reviving some of the long out of production codes as a little sideline - you can check out what's been re-issued to date over at the Lead Adventure forums. (Note, EM4 carries others in the range in their metal unpainted miniatures line)
I picked up the 3701 Adventurers set for the princely sum of £6.00 (to go with the 3720 Starship Crew I bought the other week).

The Adventurers set comprises some nice figures, including two bounty hunter or mercenary types, plus a good looking tech figure. But it's the chap on the left that got me excited. Here's the results of my painting session (accompanying the extended action that was Germany v Algeria):
I see this guy as some sort of wealthy trader perhaps. He has enough money to enjoy the finer things in life; fine clothing, jewellery and (as demonstrated by his expansive waistline) plenty of luxery foodstuffs!
He's still very much of a hands-on character though, for all his love of the finer things in life. He still carries a pistol and comm-set and is clearly used to taking charge!
The only prep work needed for the figure was a bit of light attention to some very fine mould lines, and removal from the integral solid base with a modelling saw.
You can see above that he scales relatively well against a contemporary Citadel figure, and that's just as well, as I envisage plenty of use as a character in Necromunda (perhaps dealing with scavvies in the illegal spook racket?!).
If you like this figure, I strongly suggest you check out the other Spacelords available either through EM4, or through the LAF thread. Very useful additions for any RT, Confrontation or similar gaming!
