I doubt there would be any riding of coattails involved Andrew you are a very talented sculptor and have rightly made a strong name for yourself. That said I woudl personally love the company. The more sculpting in that " scale " the better I say. there are so many fantasy archetypes out there that I cannot possibly get to them all, and even if I did it is ridiculous to think that there can only be one successful version of any given archetype.
So I voted the third option. Look at it this way, there are very few sculptors working in that scale and a LOT of people who really like the scale and need mroe figrues to fit it.
Come on you know you wanna.
