15mm 'The Department' figures

Effigy Miniatures- excellent casting and sculpting.
"Rick, show this rookie around. I'm going to chat up that new nightclub singer."
"Vanessa! You're a fembot!"
I see the, well, fat detective as mostly Lieutenant Eckhardt from the 1989 Batman with a little of Blade Runner's Captain Bryant.
"Hey, Eckhardt! Think about the future!"
"If you're not cop, you're little people."
I was originally going to have the fabricants in different colours (like the 1990s iMacs!), but went for white instead, similar to the I, Robot and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence films.

My cops need transport. Also, my wishlist for future miniatures would have to include a Roy Batty, Pris, Leon, Rachel and Eldon Tyrell. And a GitS range. And I'm going to have to make some roof fans. And a lot of signs. This is why I shouldn't do new periods.


  1. I found some paper models online for cars from the movie "Blade Runner".
    I just did a simple Google search.

    1. UHHH. It helps if you include the link so here it is.
      Lots of neat sci fi and older cars to make as props.


    2. Thanks for the link- I'm yet to try paper models.

  2. Nice start, Sir. You might want to saunter over to
    and take a look at these 15mm vehicles.

    1. No way, looking at that page makes me want to give up for not being good enough! :-)
