Scale75 continue to expand upon their chibi-style miniatures for Smog Riders with two rather different sculpts. The first of these is the creepy Clawfinger Jack who is matched up against Mirabella Miller who is much cuter by comparison.
A Murderous Jester
Now, you can’t tell me that this chap is anything other than creepy! I don’t quite know what the cogs are for on the front of his outfit but other than that I think the sculpt does the job of just being weird and off putting very well indeed.
I don’t know whether or not it was on purpose but I do like the call back to the Green/Hobgoblin from Spider-Man with the little bomb he’s carrying and the outfit as a whole. Is that a mine he’s standing on too?
Travel In Steampunk Style
Zipping around, probably trying to avoid Clawfinger, is Mirabella Miller. She is a much more welcoming sight! While I do like what they’re trying to do with this range the chibi look has never really been for me, even as cute as Mirabella looks. I think they make great painting projects though…
I like that with this particular paint job the studio artist has tried to give her some freckles to match the fiery red hair. The Smog Riders remind me of old cartoon shows as each of them would make perfect characters for the screen.
I could see them having to deal with the dastardly Clawfinger and more villains.
What do you think of chibi?
