Perhaps the biggest issue I had was the color I wanted. Either the uniforms came out too light blue or were too dark blue (almost black).
I finally went with Vallejo Cobalt/Intense blue and the Reaper Navy Blue as a deep base.
Badges are brass and black is Gloss Black by Apple Barrel.
I'm keeping the bases gray to resemble dirty concrete, and to give it a stark, harsher appearance...
And now I present to you; The 13th Precinct....
*insert late 1930's- 1940's police/gumshoe theme music*
"Working on the streets of the city, the boys from The 13th Precinct do their best to keep the streets safe for all the good citizens and keep the bad guys down.
Keen eyes will note that ALL of the foot officers of the 13th are "Irish". The precinct is primarily Irish (except for Roz), and they are effective on the street despite the "Paddy/Mick" stereotyping. There is a rumor though that is currently going around that 1-2 of them (at least) may be on the take (or involved in other things); however there is currently no evidence to support this rumor for now...."

|Sgt. O'Hara and his ever present and seemingly all knowing clipboard...|
|Officer O'Doyle is the newest member of the Precinct. Due to his lack of "Street Smarts" and still being a bit wet behind the ears, Sgt. O'Hara has him working the station house as he learns the ropes.|
|From L to R: Senior Officers Quinn and Sullivan lead the two teams that make up The 13th Precinct...|
|First Squad; From L to R: Officers Officers Kirkpatrick, O'Connell, and O'Reilly. Senior Officer Quinn is in front.|
|Second Squad: From L to R: Officers McGuire (with rifle), O'Hoolihan (with pump shotgun), and O'Connor (with Tommy Gun). Senior Officer Sullivan is in front.|
