Wonder Festival 1/6th scale Hunter Girl with wolf bust

Recommended Posts

There WAS a company making resin minis in Hong Kong, but they closed down last year because they couldn't compete with the recasters copying their stuff.  If it comes from China, it's 99% likely that it's a recast. 

I also found an eBay ad for the same kit, and they actually use the word recast in the text. but that one was from Thailand.

That's another country where copyright seems to mean 'copy this right now'.

 

Some resin casters go to the step of partially assembling their minis before selling them these days, in the hope that it will at least delay the recasters a little bit.

 

By the general feel of it, I'd assume that it was Eastern European in origin.  

(Not that I'm an expert. Far from it)

beautiful, with some very realistic details. 

I bet that a gun nutexpert could even ID the rifle the girl has on her back. 

 

The paintjob is... just beautiful.

Thanks! I could only find one listing that even claimed to be original and it was a completed model. From what I understand this was a garage kit sold at Wonder festival in Japan and limited to 300 pieces but info on garage kits seems to be spotty at best.

300 is a typical number of casts from most garage or boutique vendors.   

The molds are pretty fragile so they never last very long, and making new molds from the master eventually wears it down. Details gets rubbed off and all that. 

 

Some hobbyists never bother to put up a storefront webpage, or even sell through established resellers. Instead they just rent a table in a dealers' area at a con and sell them direct there. 

 

I found a painter A. Demidov from st. Petersburg that posted his version over on Putty&Paint in december 2017.

I'll have to look him up.

Speaking of garage kits I won this one last night Screenshot_20200510-082908.thumb.png.933583837208c8b623133c02a011cf6e.png

Seems to be some kind of promo figure it was listed as wonder fest 1990s Japanese Barbarella but I can't really find anything on it either.

That's not Barbarella. 

Barbarella was 1960s Sci-fi/soft-pr0n with Jane Fonda in skintight suits or one-piece swimsuits. 

Don't bother watching the movie. No one watches it for the acting... 

 

That one is more 'Red Sonja'.   

(Except that Red is usually portrayed with chainmaille bikini top.)

Yeah I've had the misfortune of seeing it. My guess is she's just a generic anime barbarian girl, possibly the mascot for that years wonder festival.

Barbarella was actually a comic first.  I remember seeing it sold in stores in Norway.

From the video it sounds like the only way to get a lot of these kits is via recast because they make less than 50 of them for a show

Claudine looks like a fine kit.

Can't wait to see it painted by you.

      Putting my new Photon through its paces printing some Heroforge sculpts.
       
      The halfling operative is actually a mash-up of two Heroforge sculpts in Tinkercad. (Why can't Heroforge let you have just a single cyberarm?)
       
      Didn't think to photograph her till I had the primer on:
       

      The first print of the gnome solarion didn't have enough supports on the arm with the fireball, so after cleaning the resulting lump out of the vat and trying again with more supports, here she is, supports and all:

      Hi everyone,

      Firstly I´m pleasured to take part of this forumm . My name is Alvaro Gonzalez and Im a spanish miniatures sculptor, for last year I have been sculpting some miniatures and the time has come to pre lunch my first kickstarter campaign that I will launch in two weeks around.

      This deal with 32mm scale (23mm tall to eyesline) resin fantasy miniatures for wargames, collectors and painting. It will be a small project of 9 dwarves miniatures.

      It would be great having the support of this community for carrying on my brand.

      You can keep posted about news in our facebook , I will post news every week.

      Here is a little preview of Lilyana one of our core minis for that set.

      This Bombshell Miniatures' 75mm resin Tara purchased at last year's ReaperCon. She's actually a skosh over 80mm. She's also listed as 1/24th scale, which puts her a tad over six feet. The kit is four pieces - body/legs/upper arms/head, lower arms incorporating a head and sword, and a small rocky base.  The body is well toned with noticeable muscle definition. My example had a large resin blob hanging down betwixt her legs (the one time I don't check a figure for issues/parts). Anywho, Dremel to the rescue. I routed out the blob and reshaped her thighs. Since her skirt is very short, I painted in a pair of expensive solid black tactical La Perla boyshorts. Nuthin' but the best... The rest is of the casting was fine although the sword scaled out to over 40 inches and was too thick. I took some of the length off and thinned it down. I also added a scabbard, since none was included. An odd omission... I also added a secondary weapon in the form of a boot knife. The skin tones are the new Bones colors and, since she has a barbarian look about her, I imparted a somewhat dirty and sweaty look to her - no smooth boudoir look transitions here. I also toned down the highlights in her hair - barbarian vs shampoo commercial. I did add a bit of makeup to her face (contradictory, I know). All other paints are Reaper's MSPs. The base was extended with Aves Apoxie Sculpt, stippled with an old oil painting brush with kitty litter rocks and pebbles. I added pointed ears to the severed head, and painted it using the Dark Elf Skin triad.

      On top of the Sherman Jumbo, I have a new project. This is Frozen Ninja 3D's resin bust of a cloaked gal holding a small flaming dragon. I picked it up ReaperCon last fall.
       
      There are four parts: a base, a robed torsos, a hooded head, and a pair of arms holding the dragon. Over the casting was good, but there were some issues with the resin sheaving (splitting off in layers) in the arms and the underside of the torso. These were sanded down, the given a layer of putty, then further sanded down. You can see the putty in the pics.
       
      I also hollowed out the sleeves and a portion of the hood. These were filled in almost to the opening. I used a Dremel tool and ball cutters to hollow them out and tried to match the inside with the exterior folds.
       
      One unique (to me) thing is the base; there is a two-leve' base with some symbols on it, and small stone house built on top of that. The roof structure is built into the torso's back. It sure beats the usual brass rod...
       
      Pics are where I'm at so far.
       
      Qs and Cs welcomed.
