Never thought I'd say this, but...

No. I don't like the female sculpt.

 

The fabric should have been held out from her skin a bit because of her rather generous breasts, but it's not. So it just doesn't look right to me.

 

Maybe I'll back for one of the other minis later.

As a most personal opinion, I do find the sculpting to be a bit lackluster, in particular when it concerns how the cloths are sculpted. It feels like the sculptor hasn't got a clear idea of how it naturally falls and folds, which makes it look odd at some places. And at 75 mm, you cant "hide" them as you can in smaller scale. I also have some issues with the flow of some of the poses, that also don't look natural. Kuang-Kung, for example, looks to be in a very unnatural pose. What is he supposed to do? Is he raising the hammer to attack someone? Is he recoiling with fear/disgust/surprise? In regards of Ma Tzu-Ko, I think its how the head is posed that makes it look wierd. Place yourself in that pose. The feet pointing forward, the shoulder straight to the side, and the neck slightly behind the shoulders. It's not a natural pose and I find it to be overdone. The entire pose should be twisted a bit more so that she is facing more "forward" than "backwards".

Hmm I've wanted Ch'n-Han for a while now...  I like some of the other characters and share some of the concerns raised by others.  Snagged one of the limited early bird tiers for the 5 of them but already thinking of dropping down to a lower tier...  will wait and see.  Really want some good Asian themed pieces but not sure these will be them.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
