Mr. James John, a.k.a. Jimmy the Smirker, a.k.a. Smirking Jimmy, a.k.a. Smirking John, a.k.a. “the Smirker”, and numerous other handles not fit for polite society is a “fixer.” A fixer is a logistics problem solver – he or she can procure, fence, hire personnel or broker a deal whether legit or not so legal.
He’s known for his contemptuous smirk. He began as a well-paid attorney, who was disbarred when implicated in a scheme providing drugs and prostitutes to spoiled neer-do-well children of wealthy corporate execs. Now, he sells anything and everything to anybody – for a price. Need a military grade pulse rifle? He can get that. Need to plant incriminating evidence on your corporate rival? He can arrange that.
Smirking John is usually listed as a Cyberpunk Dealer and is a 3D Printed Miniature sold by several boutique miniature companies found on Etsy & eBay. These figures fluctuate in scale from 28mm to 35mm depending on how the miniature company prints the figure. The quality of resin also varies between the companies. So, buyer beware, talk to the printer and get enough information to feel comfortable ordering.
Now, if I were a serious mini-painter, I would have done some object source lighting effects around his face in color, it’s a thing in Cyberpunk now for people to line their collars with LED neon lights. But, my painting pile is much too large and I must move on to other miniatures.
I’m really enjoying painting the Cyberpunk miniatures I’m finding on Etsy, they fill a gaming niche that’s often hard to find. What do you think of 3D printed resin minis?
