32001 – Galactic Defense Force Commander (GDF Faction) (Atlanti) – Bombshell Miniatures “Counterblast” 32mm Pewter (metal) figure

 

Here is another very nice looking figure from Bombshell Miniatures for their Counterblast game, or if you just like Sci-Fi figures. I recently received the “GDF Atlanti Commander” from Bombshell Miniatures via Modelers Social Club, MSC Review Connect to review. I wish I knew more about the Counterblast adventure battle game, but the figure has amazing detail for such a small scale and represents a male shark type character.

The Kit

20150205_170229 (800x788)

Contains 1 figure, air-pack and 1 base that sells for $9.99.


It can also be purchased in kit # 32000 – Counterblast Adventure Battle Game Galactic Defense Force Faction Core set which contains six (6) figures for $49.95 which would be great if you are building a Galactic Police Force. You just need to add his air-pack and dome to complete 32000gdfset-1 (600x600)this figure. He is armed with a Pulsar Rifle. Upon looking closer you see the incredible amount of crisp detailing that Bombshell Miniatures has put into this figure, his uniform also has great detail.  Clean up is minimal. Mold seams are barely noticeable and what flash there is, is located on the part that inserts into the base. This should make clean up very easy. The seam is light, where it can be seen at all and the pewter used is soft enough to easily remove with a light sanding. I recommend attaching the air-pack with a super-glue and the dome with white glue (Elmers) so it doesn’t craze or fog the clear glass effect.

It can also be purchased in kit # 32000Counterblast Adventure Battle Game Galactic Defense Force Faction Core set which contains six (6) figures for $49.95 which would be great if you are building a Galactic Police Force. The 32mm figure is cast in pewter and comes with a plastic dome and plastic 25mm round base. You only need to add his dome to complete this figure. He is armed with a Lazblade and Pulsar 32000gdfset-1 (600x600)Pistol. Upon looking closer you see the incredible amount of crisp detailing that Bombshell Miniatures has put into this figure, his uniform has great detail.  Clean up is minimal. (You will need to remove the excess pewter that was molded between the handle of his Lazblade and his leg). Mold seams are barely noticeable and what flash there is, is located on the part that inserts into the base. This should make clean up very easy.

As I said before, I wish I knew more about the game, however, the Galactic Space Police Enforcer and Commander are extremely cool looking figures as part of the Counterblast Game.  I highly recommend either one, or both, figures if you are into the game, or just like a cool looking Sci-Fi figures. The size of these figures are small and you will need to take care in preparing and painting them. The pricing of these figures is very reasonable at $9.99 US.  As well as for gaming, these figures would also make this a great pieces for someone starting out on figures or learning the art of figure painting.

 

Highly Recommended!!
