Resident Evil 6

I tend to only post miniatures related stuff here.  Even then its really only miniatures stuff that is directly connected to me: my miniatures in other words, not notes about upcoming releases from X company or reviews of a TV show or whatever.  There is nothing wrong with doing that sort of thing of course, its just not what I want to do here.

So I am making a little bit of an exception with this post.

I have enjoyed video games for my whole life.  Video games have often been a large part of the inspiration for various miniatures related projects.

Of all of those influences the Resident Evil video game series (not the sub-par movies) has probably had the most impact on my toy soldiers, some of which can be seen here.  Of course the majority of my zombie stuff is connected too.

Therefore news that Resident Evil 6 is to be released in November is definitely worthy of note.

The viral marketing campaign site is nohopeleft.  The big release trailer, in all of its cheesy Bruckheimer glory is below.

That this game finally pairs up Leon (a man whose pithy lines are the only thing limper than his fringe) with Chris (the most frequently appearing male meatball character) is cheesy, bromantic, soap-opera gravy.

Leon has been re-based since this shot. He still has nightmares though.

With RE6 out in November, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City out exactly one month from today plus Resident Evil Revelations out on Feb 7th (only on 3DS.  Boo!)  it looks like 2012 will be annus horribilis, for all the right reasons.

  1. Where did you get that fig from? Or do you have any recommendations for Resident Evil figures out there? I’d love to hear your opinion.


    • The Licker shown is a conversion of a Horrorclix. More details here.

      The Leon figure is part of a range from Recreational Conflict under their “Lead Bones” title.

      They have figures for Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Barry Burton, Joseph Frost (RE1 outfits), Leon Kennedy x 2, Ashley Graham (RE4), Rebecca Chambers (RE0), Carlos Oliveria (RE3?).

      The figures are not the best sculpted figures out there, but they have some charm. The fact that they are recognisable as RE figures is a big deal to me.

      Progress that I have made with Resident Evil related figures can be found here.


  2. Hey Cheetor, could you give me anymore info on the horrorclix licker? I can’t seem to find one anywhere. Cheers

    • Hi Joshua.

      The Licker body, arms and legs were made out of a Horrorclix “Tickler” figure.
      The brain was sculpted onto a Marvel Heroclix “Venom”.

      I hope that helps!
