Something Wild

"New Barbies"? Nah, t was just a marketing scam to increase sales. It is scary that the standard of beauty is an unrealistic stanard set by a toy company. No wonder there are girls as young as ten starving themselves into anorexia in our looks obsessed society. I went through that as a body builder in the early 90's where I was obsessed with what I ate, how I looked and aside from an insane workout schedule was doing hundreds of sit ups every day. It was nerve wracking.

Hollywood doesn't help much either. They want Liv Tyler to drop weight so she can get more roles in movies. SHEESH!!!

I would like to know if anyone makes a few female miniatures that are a bit on the heavier side.

As for female minis that are attractive yet not wafer-stick-thin, a good example is Reaper's Alura the Succubus. She's curvy, not fat, but not skinny. The sculpt kinda reminds me of how Frazetta paints women. Not supermodel thin, not steroidally muscular, not fat, but curvacious . Personally, I'll take a curvy beauty over a skinny supermodel-type any day. :B): All those sharp edges...ouch!

That type of proportioning (Frazetta-esque) is also used by i-Kore on their Celtos females. It's a bit more realistic than the Fiannas.

What about elmore's line of minis?? they don't all look like twig's.

 

Or even hasslefree. I like that chick with the big butt and axe ::P:

 

Baby's got back.....

 

As for the male fig.s...well sometimes the muscles are a little over developed.

 

But.A beer gut can be sculpted on with some green stuff with no problem.

 

just grind off the sword and replace with a twinkie and you have realisim in it's full glory.

 

 

As for the female fig.s again use green stuff. Put some meat and cheese on those thighs.

 

add a little extra to the boobies and make them sag....ohhh and don't forget to make one fall out of the really tiny skimpy bikini.

 

Go to the dollhouse supplies and get a few kids to put at her feet,and alos an apron.

 

For the liberal woman: just get a really skinny model,add glasses,put hair up in bun.Add stilleto 6inch heels and have a man slave under her foot.

 

put pencil in one hand and the bill of right's in the other....ohhh also don't forget to re-sculpt the nose so that it is pointing up in an arua of highh majestic-ness

Now would any of you buy those chicks if the Scupltors made them with crooked,yellow buck teeth,scraggly hair,sagging boobs,and chin and under arm hair???

 

ohhh,and don't forget the familiar.......a water bladder over one shoulder and a baby on her large cottage cheesse looking hip.

hahahaha I know that I certainly would! I love models that are different and that would certainly count as different to me!

 

 

I would LOVE to have some models like that!

7thunders: are you implying that there can only be Fianna one one side, Fugley on the other, and no in between? Hmmm?? I mean, boobs like half-empty shopping bags is hardly the only alternative to levitating watermelons, wouldn't you say? On the other hand, if that's how you see the world, then who am I to stifle a giggle at your expense? :poke: Besides, what you want there has been done. Check out the troll matron. Rrrrrrrowrrrrr!

 

Personally I think Reaper is about right, and the Celtos line had some minis I'd consider very attractive. The Fianna models are just IMO so stupidly out of proportion it's hard to discern if they're even human, or just some sort of badly botched experiment in wizard's constructs- that said, ALL the Rackham line is wildly (dis)proportioned, it's a cartoon line, and hurrah for cartoons, so one could always just chalk the whole thing up to a strongly stylised representation. One that simply fails to do much for my own, personal, you-don't-have-to-share-it, aesthetic

 

Me, I like variety. Put out a short curvy female mini. I'll buy it. Put out a tall thin female mini with small breasts. I'll buy it.... even if it makes the elven males feel a little insecure. Sure, this is fantasy, but fantasy is diverse. Did not Polgara, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World, have big hips? Huh? Huh? Didn't she? Huh? :upside: Some of us are a TAD more widely read than "Heavy Metal" magazine.

 

Vaguely on-topic; I was playing Neverwinter Nights, see, and the time comes to pick my (male) character's body type- I'm expecting three or four options, right? I got two. Blocky, and blocky as an outhouse on its side. What? Why can't my character be tall, lean, and athletic?? So yeah, give me some lean, mean male fighters too. heck, give me a big powerful guy with a gut. What about portly wizards? Jolly clerics? A fat nun with pants on?

"Baby Got Back"

 

[intro]

Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her butt.

It is so big. *scoff* She looks like,

one of those rap guys' girlfriends.

But, y'know, who understands those rap guys? *scoff*

They only talk to her, because,

she looks like a total prostitute, 'kay?

I mean, her butt, is just so big. *scoff*

I can't believe it's just so round, it's like,

out there, I mean - gross. Look!

She's just so ... black!

 

[sir Mix-a-Lot]

I like big butts and I can not lie

You other brothers can't deny

That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waste

And a round thing in your face

You get sprung, wanna pull up tough

'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed

Deep in the jeans she's wearing

I'm hooked and I can't stop staring

Oh baby, I wanna get wit'cha

And take your picture

My homeboys tried to warn me

But with that butt you got makes me feel so horny

Ooh, Rump-o'-smooth-skin

You say you wanna get in my Benz?

Well, use me, use me

'Cause you ain't that average groupy

I've seen them dancin'

The heck with romancin'

She's sweat, wet,

Got it goin' like a turbo 'Vette

I'm tired of magazines

Sayin' flat butts are the thing

Take the average black man and ask him that

She gotta pack much back

So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)

Has your girlfriend got the butt? (heck yeah!)

Tell 'em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)

Shake that healthy butt!

Baby got back!

 

(LA face with Oakland booty)

Baby got back!

 

[sir Mix-a-Lot]

I like 'em round, and big

And when I'm throwin' a gig

I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like an animal

Now here's my scandal

I wanna get you home

And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh

I ain't talkin' bout Playboy

'Cause silicone parts are made for toys

I want 'em real thick and juicy

So find that juicy double

Mix-a-Lot's in trouble

Beggin' for a piece of that bubble

So I'm lookin' at rock videos

Watchin' these bimbos walkin' like hoes

You can have them bimbos

I'll keep my women like Flo Jo

A word to the thick soul sistas, I wanna get with ya

I won't cuss or hit ya

But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna ****

Til the break of dawn

Baby got it goin' on

A lot of simps won't like this song

'Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it

And I'd rather stay and play

'Cause I'm long, and I'm strong

And I'm down to get the friction on

So, ladies! {Yeah!} Ladies! {Yeah}

If you wanna role in my Mercedes {Yeah!}

Then turn around! Stick it out!

Even white boys got to shout

Baby got back!

 

Baby got back!

Yeah, baby ... when it comes to females, Cosmo ain't got nothin'

to do with my selection. 36-24-36? Ha ha, only if she's 5'3".

 

[sir Mix-a-Lot]

So your girlfriend rolls a Honda, playin' workout tapes by Fonda

But Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda

My anaconda don't want none

Unless you've got buns, hun

You can do side bends or sit-ups,

But please don't lose that butt

Some brothers wanna play that "hard" role

And tell you that the butt ain't go

So they toss it and leave it

And I pull up quick to retrieve it

So Cosmo says you're fat

Well I ain't down with that!

'Cause your waste is small and your curves are kickin'

And I'm thinkin' bout stickin'

To the beanpole dames in the magazines:

You ain't it, Miss Thing!

Give me a sista, I can't resist her

Red beans and rice didn't miss her

Some knucklehead tried to dis

'Cause his girls are on my list

He had game but he chose to hit 'em

And I pull up quick to get wit 'em

So ladies, if the butt is round,

And you want a triple X throw down,

Dial 1-900-MIXALOT

And kick them nasty thoughts

Baby got back!

 

(Little in the middle but she got much back) [4x]

Here is a little something I whipped up. I don't really see a whole lot wrong with the Fiannas other than slightly larger faces which is recommended for miniatures any way because of their size, and large breasts. The other proportions don't seem that far off to me.

 

Clearly the armor sticks out way more than it should realistically, but at that scale it's a must so we can actually paint these things.

Wasn't that just Beldin teasing her though? After all the two would rather hurl insults at each other as thier way of say "I love you"

 

I am fairly well read myself! :;):

Let me just say I think the Fianna are cool minis from an artistic perspective. If I owned them though they would probably just sit on my shelf after I painted them up as collectables.

They are out of proportion. Not their breast. They are pretty much in the range of human variation. Natural breast come in lots of shapes and sizes. However their waiste are too small and there legs are too long and skinny at the ankels. Some of the sculpts are better than others. They are stylized and cartoonish and that is fine but they do not interest me as a gamer. Only as a collector. I have minis in my collection for both reasons.

It's not just their proportions that are the problem. Many of them are also posed is fairly useless poses. It looks like their are trying to sell their swords rather than fight with them. There are one or two that look like their are in a fighting pose but most of them are in a fashion shot pose with their sword.
