Very good work, paulm. Now it seems I'm going to have to paint my figurines. I was thinking of just leaving them as is, but yours look so nice I had better get the paint and brushes out now. -Paula

paulm
thank you. I have ordered Tarrant and Dayna as i have been so pleased with these ones
 
Space Chopper
Nice work, paulm. I've put my figures on their bases, and decided to do Dayna in her Ultraworld outfit. I filed the thigh-boot tops off, and used greenstuff to look like her trousers are tucked into knee-length boots, which I think are closer to her outfit. I've also wound fine fuse wire around an opened paperclip to create coiled wire to put on the Liberator guns, connecting to their battery packs. They were the very devil to get on! As soon as I've painted them, I'll put up pics- it may take me a while!

sounds like yours will be spot on. Think i will get the file out for Dayna as well and go for the ultraworld outfit

Here's a link to a handy site that gives a costume guide to the characters.

http://www.hermit...tumes.html

From what I've been able to see, the figures' costumes are as follows:

Blake: As seen in The Way Back, Space Fall, Cygnus Alpha, Time Squad.
Avon: As seen in The Web, Seek-Locate-Destroy, Mission to destiny, Duel, Project Avalon, Breakdown, Deliverance.
Jenna: As seen in Cygnus Alpha, Time Squad, Seek-Locate-Destroy, Breakdown., although the neckline looks more like the costume in The Web, Mission to destiny. The fact that this one is a dress rather than a blouse makes me plump for the former.
Vila: As seen in The Way Back, Space Fall, Cygnus Alpha, Time Squad.
Cally: As seen in Trial, Countdown, Star One, Aftermath, Powerplay., although you could get away with the red suit from Time Squad.
Gan: As seen in The Web, Seek-Locate-Destroy, Mission to destiny, Duel, Project Avalon, Breakdown, Bounty, Deliverance, Orac.
Tarrant: As seen in City at the Edge of the World, Children of Auron.
Dayna: As seen in Ultraworld, Terminal, Rescue. Although the thigh boots will need filing down.

Thats a very useful list, i wish i had that when i was painting!

Crooked Dice now have two more figures in the Future Freedom Fighters range, listed as 'female gunfighter' and 'weary bounty hunter'- basically, Soolin and Blake from the final episode. Below is a pic of the minis from Crooked Dice.

I've ordered mine, and will post pics of them as and when I've painted them all up. I'm a bit tied up with work and a Liberator refit at the moment!

So great to see, thanks for sharing the figure painting too Paulm, there terrific.

Now all that is needed is a Season 4 Avon and Season 4 Servalon to complete a terrific collection. (Well that is unless they would like to do each and every character in the entire series. Anyone for Zill, Moloch and a certain robot to seek out Orac?). Smile
 
Coser
Don't forget there are the opposition too!

http://www.crooke...-security/

And although not actually a season 4, there is a Servalan

http://www.crooke...y-travers/.

Must admit, I'm not that struck on the http://www.crooke...vy-weapon/ which is pretty much made up of whole cloth (as in was never seen on screen and is made up for the purposes of their game, not as a model for us appreciators.).

I am on holiday next week and will be spending a week at home doing jobs around the house. I'll see if I can't get to putting up a painting blog afterwards on working on one of these figures. does anyone have a particular one they want me to concentrate on? I have the last 2 on order to be delivered home so I should have all of them next week, and I am preparred to put up a detailed walk through on painting them to a fairly high standard, including using primer as pre-shader.

I know I have a really dirty mind, and it doesn't half make normal conversations much more interesting when at work, but was that the best picture they could do? I mean, should Blake really be pointing his weapon there?

Hello All,

In their January 2016 newsletter, released today, Crooked Dice have announced four new Blake's 7 figures are upcoming:

'March should see four additions to the Future Freedom Fighters range with new versions of both heroes and villains.'

Maybe a season D version of Avon will be included?

Smile

That's terrific news. There was a Season 4 Avon figure published many years ago (just a second while I check the official 'Blakes 7 The Merchandise Guide."Wink, oh yes in 1998 by Imar models. Smile I still look for these figures with growing sadness as there nearly impossible to find and when they do, there snapped up almost immediately on collector sites.

So in short, I think a Season 4 Avon figure would be a massive seller for them.

As for copyright, it has caused far to many missed opportunities for Blakes 7 as it is. If only people who actually care about Blakes 7 could have a chance to own the license. I'm glad Big Finish at the very least was given the rights or we'd still be crossing our fingers for this alleged TV 're-boot', which not surprisingly has died off as usual.

So way to go Crooked Dice for bringing out some terrific figures that look a lot like our favourite heroes in Blakes 7. Smile

Some news from Crooked Dice is that four new minis are due out in March. They now do 3D printing based on renders, and the models are incredibly detailed. Shown below are the renders for the new batch of Future Freedom Fighters, from L-R: Servalan/Commisioner Sleer, Travis 2 (Brian Croucher version) and series 4 Avon and Vila. The facial likenesses look incredible.

Slightly chunkier than the actors would have wished but amazingly recognisable - especially Vila.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.
 
Spaceresearcher
Thanks for the update Space Chopper. Does this mean that they will now become plastic figures instead of classic metal miniature figures?
 
markab2
These little things look really good! The closest I've ever came to having any kind of figure from B7 was when I converted my action man into Blake and my sisters cindy doll into Jenna (This was the 70s not now). I actually kitted them out with tele-port bracelets and weapons - until the fateful day when Blake was stripped away and turned into a Cyberman with tin foil.
