Drone Sweet Drones

Two years ago, while travelling through upper Cali, I found these little guys inside the glass case of a comic/gaming/general nerdery shoppe called Bat Comics and Games.  At only a buck each and perfect for drones in 15mm scale, I snatched them up.  They had no identifiers, but that's not a problem for the hivemind over at the Lead Adventure Forum, and within a day they were IDed as Boppers.
 

According to the ancient texts, these little guys go way back to the METAGAMING days.  They were originally designed for use with a game called RIVETS - one I've never played, but one that looks fun nonetheless.  Looks like I got a Jack Bopper, two Rocket Boppers, and a Tiny Bopper.  Cute little guys, and the perfect size for drones or even as parked 'bots usable as cover.

 
These four little guys will probably be pressed into service as some sort of automated security or cleaning drones for use with my next project.  It's a real doozy, and you're going to be suitably impressed.  If the holidays are quiet, I hope to show you a whole new gaming board the first week of January.
 
The lovely spokesmodels shown for scale are Khurasan's Grav Armor crew with the ridiculously long silencers at the end of their barrels snipped down to a more reasonable length.

    1. Had to go and take a look and it's the 2mm range that has some interesting stuff.
