Hellllo Ladies! Modern Female Operators


In the interest of equal opportunity, here are five female operators working towards gender-balancing my ACWII collection.


Similar to the Russians from my previous post, all of these figures are from Spectre Miniatures. 


I quite like the mix of both civilian and paramilitary gear on these figures as it allows them to fit in with a wide variation of settings. 



I also appreciate the sculptor's effort to model these women on realistic forms and poses, as opposed to some of the fantastical spotty-faced-boy-in-the-basement stuff you often see in the market.

They are armed with a variety of weapons including a Glock holdout pistol, PP-2000 SMG,  HK416 assault carbine, a Kriss Vector SMG and a Kel-Tec assault shotgun.  Yup, definitely NOT damsels in distress.



There is at least one more pack of female operatives I'd like to add to these, but they'll have to wait as future reinforcements.

Next up: Some vehicles!

  4. Lovely work in many ways Curt. However, for the true 'Murica effect you'll need at least one bikini clad buxom blond toting an AR-15!

    1. I may have to succumb to a few of those to help with the 'in country' theme, when required.

  5. Fab job Curt. I love the sculpts of these figures just wish they were a smidge chunkier to fit in with other figures in my collection!

    1. Yeah, they're a bit slighter for sure. It's the weapons that make me a bit mental. I wish they were a bit bulkier, more like the stuff from Empress and Eureka. Thanks for the comment!

  7. These are great! Is it me, or is there something really grungy about them? I can almost imagine the brick dust on the boots and mud stains on the combat fatigues. I particularly love the one with the green jacket leaning forward with the automatic weapon. Chilling...and most definately not chillin'.

    Really well done, Curt - and perfect for the next American Civil War. Crikey!

    1. Thanks very much Sidney! Yes, she's one of my favourite figures as well. The lass exudes lethal capability.

  8. Nicely done Curt. Clear bases are really taking off for miniatures. I see more & more people using them.

    1. Thanks Terry. Yes, the clear bases definitely work well for skirmish type games and take the guesswork out of deciding what basing theme you want to sync with.
