Wow! I thought you all were kidding about how bad they are. I mean, I want more female orcs, and I'm not squeamish about nudity, but these are just not that great, especially given the price point (which I'm sure is reasonable for resin figures, but not enough to make me casual about buying them).

 

Pledging, not buying! I mean pledging at these particular "Thank you gift" levels. Kickstarter is like PBS, not shopping. (nudge nudge, wink wink)

To me, it appears like Benoit Cosse is aiming to achieve an effect that looks "poor". For example, look at the sculpt with the female holding the carcass/skeleton into the air. The skull and the ribcage look amateurish. The feathers of the vulture don't look at feathers at all. Look at all the fur details on the other sculpts. Also amateurish. If he is aiming to sculpt "ugly" figures, it would look a lot better if the details are at least sculpted decently. 


There's a demand out there for female orcs, and I can see where he's trying to fill the demand... and nudity does not bother me... but when I honestly think I could sculpt better myself, or convincingly kitbash plastic miniature segments together to make a better product?

Grefven's remark above in regard to the skeleton is spot on, tho I did not read his commentary until after I saw the Kickstarter. I'll not be participating.

I have no need for these minis and have no plans to be a part of this KS.

 

But I think you all maybe wrong about them being bad sculpts.  I believe they are sculpt the way they are on purpose.

 

If you look at the orcs as depicted in lets say the Hobbit movies their faces are by human standards ugly.

 

I believe the sculptor wanted to invoke a old Movie tribal feeling with female orcs that showed that while these are defiantly female they are defiantly orcs of the ugly kind.

 

I think the vulture orc while over the top is meant as a shaman and the unreal skelly is very Hollywood (think Indian Jones and the temple of doom) 

 

They are not my style and they are obviously not many of your styles but I do not think they are bad sculpts.

 

I think they are orcs that are not just humans with green skin and standard Hollywood hair.

I would like to see female orcs who are equally as ugly as male orcs and equally equipped and equally as carefully sculpted.

 

I am sure there is a market for such.

I like the Cyclops (Troll) a lot, but the others are a mixed bag.  They remind me of Rat Fink and the other Kustom Kulture characters.

While I do like some of the poses in these sculpts, the quality just isn't there. The rhino seems to have the most detail done to it, and even then it could use some improvement. I like the moxie of this kickstarter, but the ambition outweighs the skill in this one.

I'm kind of with you on this.

The thing is that Benoit Cosse is an extremely talented sculptor, and has worked for several major companies. He was one of the iconic sculptors for Rackham's Confrontation. So he IS skilled, there is no doubt about it. It's just that I don't get what he wants to achieve here.

 

Otherwise, here is some other sculpts that he has done for various companies. In the last picture, the figure is, like, 2,5 meters tall. It's huge... So, again.. he is so skillful, but I think that this "rude girls" project could potentially do better if he conveyed what he wants to achieve, because the look of those sculpts are nothing compared to these below.

That's ... quite a contrast.   o.O

 

It seems all the more disappointing given how good his male figures are.

Hard to believe that's the same sculptor (mind you, I'm not doubting you, but there is a world of a difference between those orc girls and the sculpts for Rackham).

Yes, a lot of those are "ugly prett". They are supposed to be ugly creatures, but well sculpted.

That's what I'd like to see with the girls as well, ofc they have to be some degree of "ugly", not some sexy half-orc chicks, but still well made.

I have to agree with you on that. If these female figures were made to that quality, I'd be more inclined to get them.

I have a hard time believing this is the same sculptor. The work above is certainly at least acceptable. But the skeleton the orc is holding in the KS picture looks half melted. Whathehell?

      A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
      The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

      The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

      A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.
