Lead Bones 28mm "Hardsuit" review

Found a picture of this miniature on the internet and got so excited that I tracked it down to the retailer - Recreational Conflict. They have these in both 15mm and 28mm scale, I got one in 28mm to use for my pulp/horror games.

The miniature is pretty much an identical replica of the "Big daddy" creatures in the PC game Bioshock. It comes with two arms with clenched fists, and one arm that you can custom fit with either a machinegun or a drill. I wanted both options so I attached the drill to one of the clenched fist arms. The casting quality is very good, and the metal quality as well. Good fit with all the parts, no greenstuff gap filling necessary.

The miniature is quite huge, it is shown here on a 40mm base and the comparison pictures show it next to the Grindhouse Games Incursion "Hans von X" and some 28mm human sized miniatures that I have in my collection.

It's easily worth the 10USD Recreational Conflict charges for these beasts. The problem with Recreational Conflict however is the shipping outside of US which is most likely causing many people to have a change of mind. You can however do what I did, and get into contact with Richard over atrichard@recreationalconflict.com and ask if he can arrange an alternative shipping method like he has done for others and like he did for me. It's a bit of a hassle, but definitely worth it if you want to get hold of one of these awesome miniatures.

  1. Remember seeing this one ... do I sense one of your gentleman clubmembers lumbering around in this and dealing pain some time in the future? ;)

    1. Ha! You know what, I had not thought about that - but a cross between the steam powered exo-skeleton and the plate armor might be just what this could represent!
