SisterMaryNapalm posted a topic in Works In ProgressI hope it's acceptable I post this here. All of us are double-crossed from time to time. Life is mean. Life is hard. In my case, it was later. To be precise: Late enough so I couldn’t do anything against it anymore. I have been a fan of the Kingdom Death minis ever since I knew they existed. I love the anime design and the anime poses and … errr … kyonyuu. Anyway: Some time ago I came to know that I could buy single figures instead of the whole bunch and a friend, who owns REAL Kingdom Death minis – and I mean the old resin ones, not the new hard plastic stuff – recommended me to buy some to see if I would get along with the tiny and breakable resin bits. So I said yes. Did it. Went to EBay and checked. Hell, were they expensive. I was so disappointed and stopped looking, but a few days later I got some miniatures recommended and went back to EBay finding Kingdom Death Minis for a reasonably low price. The seller had mainly perfect reviews and just a few mentioned “recast” and said, that there is nothing special about it. So I thought: Ah, those have to be the recasts my friend spoke of. Yeah. But the recast he meant was a new batch of KDM figures – not piracy ones. I have to admit: I didn’t check it. I bought five figures. 25 Euros, no shipping costs and when they arrived, the first impression was great. I was impressed … until I tried to assemble the first one and her parts crumbled underneath my fingers. I went to my friend and showed him the figures. He told me the whole thing and I was pissed. Especially because conducting a reverse transaction in such a case in Germany can be … weird some times. Not enough damage done … can’t do anything … on your own … much more money and time lost … I had that before. So I took it as “lessons learned” and put those figures away, buying the hard plastic ones from KDM Website instead … But that’s another story. A few days ago I was at hangout with the lovely, wonderful and talented @Cyradis (of course not as lovely, wonderful and talented as I am, but still a great person) and she suggested something to me I had lost over the pressure of the last few years of trying to get back into painting: Do something I like and enjoy. Maybe something that doesn’t mean much to me but is perfect for getting back into painting and all that stuff. (Something I try since two years and normally always get the same, NOT HELPFUL reactions of either practice more or take a break ... ). And when I went to my new apartment and unpacked all the miniatures there, I finally found those few figures. They were cheap, they wouldn’t be much of a loss if something went wrong, but most of them were damaged or unfished. So I thought: Why not make something out of them … creat something new. That moment it struck me: I had been a fan of the NieR franchise and last year in Japan I bought some of the Artworks of NieR: Automata. So I went through those and checked on the internet, deciding, I would make some RPG miniatures out of them … YorHa style. Well then … Let’s start!
