From the Shed: Copplestone Future War Partisans.

It should be no secret that one of my favourite sculptor is Mark Copplestone; his future War range for Grenadier in the early 90s made a big impression on me. Since then he has gone back to his SF figures and it has been nice to finally get some paint on some of them.

These 10 figures are billed as ‘Partisans’ and are available here.

The ten of them come with four different gun types, two variations of assault rifles, an LMG and a SMG. Given their Russian/ Soviet stylings I painted them in a mix of green, khaki and Russian camo. As such they’ll be making an appearance in my Zone Afla games quite often. They are probably a bit too military to be fitted into neon drenched cyberpunk streets but I’ve my eye on some other models to fulfil those needs.

Cheers,

Pete.

    They look bloody excellent! Perfect for Zone Alfa! Or really any modern or recent gaming in the former Soviet neighborhood. Great work on those. 🙂

  2. Excellent work Pete and I have to agree Mark Copplestone does some great figures.

  3. Really nice, Pete! 🙂 Quite a bit of variation in the figures as well!

  4. Totally agree with you over Mr Copplestone, Mark is one of my all time favourite sculptors too, I love his stuff!

    Lovely work on the painting too, have a great near future vibe to them,

    Cheers Roger.

  5. Great work on these Pete, I like how you tided all the guns in together with the painting even that they are different weapons.

  6. Having good flashbacks as a Cold Warrior seeing these well-painted gems. Man, Copplestone is amazing (and your paint jobs here do the figures great justice Pete!).

    Looking good. I picked up some Copplestone Sewer Scavengers for Zona Alfa. Very nice minis.

    Good stuff. I like how they thematically match your tanks.
