I'm not entirely sure what the name of the blister pack is for these guys from the Future Wars line, but I think it was something like "skateboarders with guns".
In any case, I needed game members for my ATZ campaign, and thought these looked interesting. I did, however, totally lose my mind when it came to prepping them for painting. Here's a catalog of my mistakes:
- Glueing the figures to bases first, so that painting the underside of the skateboards would be nigh impossible.
- Basing the figures like they were on dirt, which would be impossible to skate on.
- Priming them white, so that I really did have to try to paint the undersides of the skateboards, which is about as easy as doing your own dentistry.
But, they are done now, thank God. Four more towards the painting goal, and I at least have some guys to break out should I roll for them.
