RUDE GIRLS female orc miniatures

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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 lone light is on over the table. The players are getting their drinks, snacks, and dice ready as the GM rifles through her notes once more. Last week's map has been rolled out. Michael grabs his phone to look at the picture he took and the end of the last session so you can all get your miniatures in the right spot. Except this time is different. This time you have a new miniature, one that actually represents your character's race. As your compatriots drag out their pre-colored, plastic humans and elves you smile. Pulling out the half-orc you've been using to represent your Netherstorm character, you  flick it across the room. In the same fluid motion, you set your new miniature down on the table. A four-armed, metal monster. He has been cast. You have painted him. And now, he is ready for blood. The room goes silent with awe.
      When we created Netherstorm, we wanted to really show people who we are and how we game. Part of that was coming up with our own, non-standard player races. It was a lot of fun creating, and later playing, characters that weren't the same old elf, dwarf, or half-whatever, however there was a downside. No minis! Maybe you're the GM who likes a good, meticulously drawn map.  Maybe you're a player who enjoys finding the perfect likeness of their character, painting it exactly so, and showing it off on the hexagonal battlefield. The bottom line is, miniatures are awesome. But when you have a unique race, miniatures that encapsulate your character are thin on the ground. Finally, we are making our own minis for use with Netherstorm, as well as other systems. We are starting with our four-armed warrior race, the Kentrona. These desert-born brutes boast many great traits, whether as an impressive PC, an NPC, or a monster for the second greatest role-playing game and other
       
      and from the comments by the creator:
       
      "I can tell you that prompting from others prompted us to commission art for a second miniature, a female Kentrona soldier. We should have it early next week.
      I will update as changes are made, and rest assured, we will be making some changes very soon. (Including removing all additional shipping charges.)
      In the meantime, Netherstorm is available on Drive-thru RPG."

       Fateslayer has been an idea that has been constantly evolving, it has gone through countless names, and changes to its themes and ideas. Finally, I can say the world has started to come together and has started to come alive. It's set in a dark fantasy with a large theme of as you would guess, fate and it's constant struggle to break free from it. Each figure holds a story piece that weaves the world around each other and brings life to the world of Fateslayer. Many of the stories hold secrets and reveals what's to come in the Fateslayer universe. I hope you'll enjoy each of these crafted stories and the many characters that reside inside of it. 
       
      I wont post any of the pics. Some of them are not safe for work.

      (Note: I actually started these a while back, though they are not done yet. This is a bit less of a WIP thread than a how-I-got-here-so-far thread, which I will update as I get my old pictures organized. Questions and comments and critiques are, as always, welcome.)
       
      Last summer Bad Squiddo Games hosted a brief Kickstarter, "My Last Sunrise," of an assortment of Gothic horror minis centered around vampires. These two stood out to me as a little beyond the Hammer horror ethos of most of the other figures. While I was painting them I thought of them as "Feral Vampires," although when I just rechecked they are called "Vampire Thralls."
       
      I dunno. They don't look very thrall-like to me.
       
      Their tag line in the Kickstarter was "Float about in my night dress cooing for scraps? No way. I hunt my own meal."
       
      Anyhow, they have a fun, odd, lady pirate or highwayman look.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is a slight deviation from how I prime figures. Normally I prime them with Titanium White (which I did here) and then wash over them with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. These I wanted kind of cold-looking, so I washed them with a cold dark grey mixed from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue.
       
      That's them on the left. For a while I was including Bad Squiddo's "Dracula" in the photos, so you get a free peek at that too.

       

       
      And as per usual, the first thing I did was their skin. In contrast to the skin of living humans, I have been painting vampire skin in stark black-and-white mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. The very first layer is thinned Titanium White, then pale shadows of the lightest grey.
