Sons of Batman), and I think the minis are pretty faithful representations, although I would have preferred crisper casts from the masters. In game terms they are pretty much one-shot flying bombs, because with Defense 2 and End 3 or 4 they won't last long if attacked. Until I give them a go on the table I am not sure how useful they are since they are unlike any other characters available right now in terms of rules. Although they have Laughing Gas attacks, using them precludes their self-detonation in the same Activation, giving your opponent opportunities to take out a Robotic Doll unless you feel confident of Activating it late in a round, then winning the Take the Lead draw to go first in the following Activation. Bobbie Mk II (far right, hands in pockets) seems the most effective of the three, and both his Attacks will affect a cluster of enemy models.
Finishing these takes me to seven Joker Henchmen, at over 165 Reputation, so I really should paint a Joker soon to consider actually playing them! In addition, I have moved past the milestone of 50 painted BMG minis with these three, so I *may* do a big 'everything so far' group shot soon to celebrate.

Wolsey is a Hasslefree Miniatures model, and I am sure any resemblance to Norville 'Shaggy' Rogers is entirely coincidental!
I have started a concerted effort this month to get non-combatant civilians painted for modern-day gaming, and so there will be something of a theme here and on the Pulp Citizen blog around that.
With relatively few colours to paint, Wolsey seemed a perfect choice for me to get some momentum. The sculpting is to Kev White's always exemplary standards and it was a really nice mini to paint.

XTRAIDOS - Yin Yang Assassins is a new crowd funding campaign to add some additional minis to the Xtraidos range, and being run on the IndieGoGo platform. I love the sculpting for this small range, so I felt I had to back it. I have the first few releases and I am looking forward to adding more to those.
