Imp, do you know the Erotic ( 6000 something ) series form (s)Excalibur?

This, yes. Bondage, or penetration, or upskirts, no. Grown men playing with toy soldiers is creepy enough.

Who could not love painting the magnificent naked ladies by Kev White?
That is, as soon as I can work out a suitable palette for so much bare flesh!
Now tracking THAT down can be fairly dangerous - "Honestly Honey. It's for research!!" :wink:

Anything that is out of context, I don't mind the ?celtos mini that la posted, but I wouldn't buy it. It's crap like female assassins with their tits out or the kabuki marine women with tons of leg armour and a tiny tee which they are lifting up in order to distract the enemy?

I like to buy minis that look like they could be soldiers/fighters. I don't have any need for naked ladies...or men for that matter because I don't build dioramas or scenery. I have little need for civilians as well.

I would never buy an overtly sexualized miniature because they don't appeal to me and they are hardly a wargaming mini.
Have a look at my blog, it's really full of things: http://insosworld.blogspot.com/

I reckon you could make a mind selling furries fucking one another, as IMP sort of pointed out.

Other than that I don't care... Wild men charging into battle with their willies flopping about everywhere, topless sci fi babes being milked to fuel an alien breeding pit.

Not saying I'd buy these things, just saying I couldn't give a toss if they were sold or used in games.

What about the "dont care either way" option?

I voted ?Absolutely Not? ? the use of the term ?tasteful? is very subjective and I?m not entirely sure that wargamers/dolly collectors, as a peer group, have the best grasp of this anyway.

The fact that a lot of people seem to be equating nudity with sexuality would tend to support my caution.

Fuck the prudes and all that bollocks.
Got no problem with any depravity represented in mini form (except for that boob guillotine thing and that's only because whilst my Witch Elves would no doubt relish it for prisoners, I happen to love and adore boobies and couldn't stand to see them cut off even in toy soldier form).

Having said that, I doubt I could be bothered to buy a mini purely because it had its norks out. It normally has to fit in with the greater scheme of things. (Eg: that really rather poor piece of 70's or 80's sculpting that serves as my sacrificial offering to everything from Cthulhu to Carrotox the evil cuntish dark lord of carrots.)
