Anvil Industry in the UK have branched out once again, this time offering a new part of their Regiments range. The Boiler-Suited Renegades are alien/human hybrids who are ready to rise from the working masses and take over.
The figures in the Regiments range make use of a variety of resin parts which may be mixed and matched to create some truly unique figures. This time, we have boiler suited torsos and legs, with a choice of different basic sci-fi slug-throwers and energy weapons.
Created using 3D sculpting software, the overall ‘look’ of the miniatures is excellent. Much of the weaponry and armour on show has an ‘adapted from’ look, perhaps industrial tools or homemade armour plates. Each head has an unusual brow ridge and bald pate, giving the appearance of a blend of humanoid and alien DNA.
Anvil Industry is pretty much the best of a series of ‘homes’ for alternative or proxy sci-fi miniatures. The so-called ‘Regiments System’ with its ‘multipose’ options approach may not be the most innovative, but it’s the quality of the parts on offer and the ease of assembly that makes this company worth a second look.
