Pretty Deadly (256 and 258 or 77488 and 77490)

7 posts in this topic

So question about two of the figures from the Pretty Deadly group from the Bones III core set. 

#256 on core set picture (part number 77488) Skara, Female Skoli

#258 on core set picture (part number 77490) Mara Frostblade, Antipaladin

 

So on the core set picture, Skara seems to be holding a halberd(?) pointing down and her sword sheathed, but the mini I have, she is holding the halberd up and her sword in her opposite hand.

 

and on Mara, the shield is the same more or less, but she has just a regular/short sword, not the bigger (possibly falchion?) weapon as in the picture.

 

Did these two figures have a last minute change after the conceptual artwork was done?

the concepts weren't 100% of what made it into the sculpt. Happens to a bunch of minis (not just reaper) in the store they'll often have the concept sketches in the preview pictures and you can see tweaks done in a ton of them.

Concept art often looks good on 2d paper, but is impractical for either 3d appearance, or casting purposes.    There are a variety of other possible reasons, but concept art rarely makes  it to finished product completely unchanged.

We wondered about this too. We bought that set because of the concept art, and DH was disappointed by the sculpts that resulted.

I wasn't disappointed per se, because they are still pretty good sculpts, but they weren't what i was hoping for. i was really excited about the pole arm and the position seemed much more natural in the concept art. might do some converting on this.

Yes I wasn't disappointed per se either, but I did like the way she held the weapon in the concept art. Plus, gave me some trouble when I was trying to match everything up and make sure it was all there:)
