tre wrote::lol: 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. :beer:


Thanks Tre. Just put in a wee order of some of your girlies. Should have ordered some ages ago anyway.

I guess it would make sense for independents to match scales, hopefully your stuff is fairly similar to what I'm doing already. If I do go for this size hopefully I won't be stepping on your coattails as I expect any fantasy stuff I do will be a bit silly. And there's no way I'm sculpting so many detail and flowing robes; I'd go mad!

I keep missreading the title as 'fantasy bitch'.
Anyways, I'd say make 'em compatible with Tre's miniatures size wise.

Go with the size you already work with Andrew. How about using practical ancient mediteranean influences on the arms and armour, rather than the usual mock medieval or oriental stereotypes, or ridiculous oversized shoulder plates and swords? Feel free to avoid spikes, skulls and chainmail bikinis if you can. 8)

Indeed it is though I fear my muse may be telling me to sculpt leather clad dungeon bitches and warriors of the sacred poon... :oops:

I endorse this idea. Don't forget the slaves though. You can't have dungeon bitches without slaves of both genders!
