The Old Bill & the New Firm

The Old Bill

These arrived the other day, but I've been too busy to really do anything with them. These were sculpted by Matt over at Elheim miniatures as part of his commission a range programme. The thinking behind it is that Matt is willing to sculpt and put into production a single 20mm figure for £20. Your twenty guineas (less one pound new money) gets you two copies of a bespoke sculpt and the satisfaction of having a unique and otherwise unobtainable figure. 

Now see if you can identity (from my admittedly ham fisted camera phone effort) these three thief takers. 

...and the New Firm

A bright shiny sixpence to the smart lad who can identify these four menaces to society. 

Of course, the best way to go about it is to put together a consortium, as we did on the Guild and get a number of people to chip in. We managed to do that and assemble a seven figure set without anybody breaking the bank. I think the quality of Matt's work is inarguable. My mother in law was able to identify six out of seven figures without any difficulty. 

But if you want to get some figures made, you could do a lot worse than get in touch with Mat. 


  1. I have nominated you for an award:

  2. There are - I think they're made by Tumbling Dice. irregular do some armed woodentops for VBCW, but there was a fella on The Guild who put up some pictures of unarmed Plod. I'll double check that.

  3. Thanks! I have the Geezer's figures from Killer B and love them but 20mm seems a good fit with toy cars and scenic items.

    If you are looking for rules for blagging as opposed to civil war you should give "Geezers! Shut It!" a butchers.
