Hey, I have built almost the entire crew of Public Security Section 9 for Infinity games, tachikomas and all. I have several models for the Major, Togusa, Batou, Saito, Pazu, Boma, and Ishikawa. But no Aramaki, since he's never in the field.

One of the things that Infinity usually needs is one or two "High Value Targets", and since Aramaki never goes into the field, he'd make a perfect HVT.

The problem I'm having is finding a good model to use for Aramaki. He is very short in the manga and anime, as you can see here:

So I'm looking for probably a true 25mm dude in a suit, with a pretty high level of detail on the model (to match Infinity minis).

Help me, TMP, you're my only hope!

Useless tip…somebody makes a scientist head that would work. Thought it was Crooked Dice but cannot find it.

Great project! Do you have photos to share of the crew so far assembled?

Thanks!

How about the old "Corporate Fugitive" mini, possibly with the headswap MC MonkeyDew suggests? Painted example here:

How about the head from this guy on a suitable suited body?

Beard would probably need a bit of trimming …

"Lion in the Stars" no photos of your crew means it ain't so

Links?

This is Iron Winds Bureau Chief. He is Alexander Waverly from the 1960s Mam from UNCLE series in 25mm. Or Leo G. Carroll

Sorry, been distracted.

I've been working on a set, have most of the team at least in combat uniforms. Some I also have in civvies.

Bottom of page 1, top of page 2, since BotoBleeped textit has gone full suicidal in their business model: link

A specific (if dark) photo: link

From left to right: Saito is a Guilang sniper with a head from an Anima Tactics agent. Togusa in the Trench coat is a conversion of an Infinity Guilang with a Reaper head. Major in civvies is a conversion of the Infinity mini Zoe (and Pi-Well). Batou in the assault suit is a converted old Wu Ming, forget where the head came from (probably from an Anima Tactics agent). Boma is an old Tiger Soldier with a head from an Anima Tactics mini. Ishikawa is an Infinity Najjarun engineer with a head swap from an Anima Tactics mini and a weapon from Hasslefree.

Major in the assault suit is from Hasslefree. Batou in civvies is from Hasslefree.

Maybe a 25mm Vladimir Lenin miniature? You'd have to file off the 'stache & sculpt on the weird hair (though he'd have that angry look.) Couldn't find one in a search (for some reason AOL/Google took it upon itself to decide that I was really looking for Hershey's miniatures… >:-(

Crooked Dice's Tiny Templeton with a head swap might work:

Plus I've been meaning to get some dogs to use as sensor markers.
