Legal Team

Detective Decker Baley and DAN-33L
15 mm



In the rainy, dystopian corporate future, "if you're not a cop, you're little people".  Fortunately, Detective Baley and his cybernetic partner are on the streets, protecting the little people from gang bangers, fang gangers, hackers, crackers, spacejackers, skinjobs, whackjobs and handjobs.

These 15mm.co.uk figures are, bluntly, not what you'd call "crisp sculpts", but I kind of like them, especially the human figure's extreme versatility and the robot's weird big insectoid eyes.  And named, of course, after two iconic sci-fi detectives, and one's positronic sidekick.

"Looks like we're cornered.  How waterproof are you, exactly?"

  1. Lovely paint work Allison. Well done. Crisp perhaps not but popular yes and pleasing. SHM01 with the pistol has been re-molded twice times now and I think more than a thousand of him have left our premises to wing across the world.

    1. Depending on how he's painted, this guy could be virtually anything from a 40's private dick to a 24th century mercenary, no wonder he's popular. SHM is a great range: I've got a bag of them on my desk, including Prang and SHM18 "opinionated alien", begging to be painted.

  2. Did you really wrote police (my eyes might deceiving me) on the back of the detective, on a 15mm model.
    You must have a firm hand.
    Very well done, they are looking great!

  4. Very atmospheric final shot. Can you comment on the materials? Did you make the posters your self?

    1. Glad you like it! The basic backdrop is just color printed textures/images from the internet glued to foam core board. I created the billboard images in Photoshop, and was going to print those too but the result was poor so in the end I just composited them in Photoshop, just like the water...

  8. These are great. My own interests have veered back towards street level, robot filled dystopian cop shows a bit too recently, so I lap this sort of thing up :)

    1. I certainly can't hold a candle to your robot collection, sir :)
