Strontium Dogs - Evans the Fist

Whilst most of the now OOP Wargames Foundry 2000AD range are too large to work comfortably alongside Citadel's earlier range, there are a couple that are just about scale-compatible. Like Torso from the last post, Evans the Fist fits in with my other Strontium Dogs. Plus the grumpy looking sod is a cool sculpt!

Evans the Fist tracks down Mad Jack and Hilly Bill.


I gave Evans another simple comic-styled paint job based on a coloured image I found on Comic Vine. Like other Strontium Dog characters, there's no real consistency in costume configuration or colours - Evans is shown in khaki or lime green or blue and white, or this natty grey and terracotta.



Like Torso, Evans was also a general in the mutant army who later became a Search/Destroy agent AKA Strontium Dog. I like the colour scheme - probably not one I'd have thought of, but it looks pretty cool.



Pretty much compatible scales. L-R: Citadel, Foundry, Osprey.

  1. Nice work he looks rather cool. I do think these make good henchmen in any sort of Sci Fi game.

    1. Thanks Simon. I absolutely agree, brutish ugly henchmen are perfect for any crime boss type!

  2. These all look fine together to me. People are frequently a head or two shorter or taller than other people in real life.

    1. Absolutely agree, although there's definitely a range that my eye considers to be acceptable. Beyond that I struggle!

    2. I think it's psychological - I get it a lot with 15mm. Whilst in real life things vary it doesn't work with scale models. Your brain sees it different.

      These are fantastic by the way - love SD.

    3. It might well be psychological! We expect uniformity at scale, even though real life doesn't have that uniformity at all.

      Glad you like them!
