Alice - Resident Evil Miniature

Okay, so as Christmas approaches, my wait for my new Studio Miniatures bundle is as bad as that of a spoiled five year old, waiting in anticipation to see what Santa has brought them this year.

So this week, I thought I’d continue on from my last post, and show you all the other Studio Miniature sculpt I currently own.

This is Studios version of the Alice character from the Resident Evil movies, played by Mila Jovovich. This sculpt is representative of Alice, as seen in the third movie; Resident Evil Extinction.

This again, is another one of my favorite miniatures. I really feel this version portrays the character perfectly, and in my opinion, is a far superior miniature to portray the "Alice" character than that of most other miniatures I’ve seen depicting a similar character. One thing I really love about this miniature is that, being as it’s a portrayal of the character from the third movie, I can really see this miniature being a great asset in many other apocalyptic / sci-fi style games. I could quite easily see myself using her in the Mad Max, Road Warrior setting, a Blade Runner setting, or even a 2000AD Judge Dredd style game.

Anyway, hope all of you out there enjoy the miniature. I aim to post again before Santa comes, but if I don’t, have a great Christmas everybody!!!!!!!

Ash - Evil Dead Miniature

Last night I finally sat down and sorted out which miniatures I’m going to add to my collection this Christmas. This year I’ve decided on ordering a load of the survivor range from Studio Miniatures, as the two figures I currently own of theirs are amongst my prized possessions. Having said that, today I thought I’d share one of them with you, as this miniature alone is one of the reasons for my current interest into zombie wargamming.

This is Studios version of Ash Williams, epically played by the one and only Bruce Campbell in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead Trilogy.

I love the Evil Dead movies, and when I saw this miniature, I just had to have it. This is without a doubt one of my favourite minis I currently own. Both miniatures I own from this company are simply beautiful, hence why I am buying many more from them. They also sell a large range of zombie miniatures, while I don’t own any, I concur with many people out there that they are simply some of the best zombie miniatures on the market at the moment.

Finally I’d like to add, for those that are currently unaware, that while purchasing my miniatures, I noticed that their long awaited set of plastic zombies, are finally for sale on their site.
