Hello all. I've been scouring the internet for miniatures to use in a solo modern skirmish game. I picked up 21st century heroes from Micro Tactix which has some swat models and a few people that will work as criminals for them to fight. I've also found junior general which I'll use when I want to branch out into some more varied settings. I've also found tomoko's steel warriors line that I'll probably use at some point. It's not exactly modern but I like the look of it and I've been playing with some ideas for ways to organize a campaign for it in my head. I also found tomoko's free caliber fanart which is pretty much exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for (just sans a criminal element for the soldiers to fight).
Anyway, long story short, while I pretty much have what I need it would still be cool to have some more stylized modern special forces units and some matching bad guys for them to fight.

Honestly, many forums have search functions that are bad. When I discovered how good this one is, I knew I would be around for a while. hackbarth had the Caviero de Bope, or something like that, and some figures, too. TerraForce could give you some good results, too. Are you set for a game mat or tiles, buildings and props?
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

Thank you very much, I found the Bope figures on the swat search and I really like those. Next thing'll be to find some crims in a similar enough style and I think I'll be pretty much set.
I've found a bunch of vehicles and settings things that look really cool, but I'm a complete noob, so right now my main focus is to just get models I like and get practiced running the games, make sure I really enjoy it. I'm just using household items and my imagination for cover and props and such. I wanna build up my collection of setting things over time, as my understanding of the game(s) themselves becomes more complex and I wanna introduce more complex things into them.
That said I'd appreciate any suggestions you have for things like that. Anything I can reference in the future would be a tremendous help.

I wanna point out how awesome it is that a new guy can rock up on the forum with a request and within a few hours be directed to free resources that do exactly what he was looking for and do it well. This really is one of the best communities on the internet. Thank cowboyleland and Vermin King for helping me and thank you hackbarth as I believe you're the artist that made both of these sets.

okumarts Those are awesome. I had come across the set at some point I believe but I didn't know how extensive the riot police would be covered. I really like your art style so I'm gonna need to go through all your collection I think.

Gentleman Ranker I have no idea how I missed the slick miniatures modern troops on my first search of drivethru but thank you. and mesper those Urban gunslingers are exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for for crims thank you as well.
cowboyleland: I am thinking now that it coincides with about the time I downloaded an add blocker. I wonder if it is killing the cookies that used to keep me logged in. Anyway, not really a problem.

Vermin King: I use CCleaner every day to clean the oddball stuff that collects on my computer, which would clear out things like that any way. But usually, I stay logged on all day until I do the clean-up

cowboyleland: Did Proboards get rid of the "Leave me logged in" button?
