I almost backed for ROME and JAPAN, but somehow the proportions of the humans seem a bit off?

They look like their legs are too long?

I'm in doubt, I like a lot of it, but something looks odd about them.

 

Is this just me or am I right?

Maybe a sculptor like @TaleSpinner can tell me if I'm right?

 

Examples

I'm not sure what it is, but the propotions look off to me as well.

 

It may be that they've been sculpted to realistic proportions, which just don't work for miniatures, but it definitely seems like the legs are too long and the arms are too short

I haven't plegded (yet) because of it.

I did ask and I got a response but not sure if this is enough to change my mind,

Petty, because I could use a Legendary Roman Set and Mythological Japanese stuff is always my thing.

@ratsmitglied

I asked them again and told them what you said.

 

They are friendly and all but it seems they will keep it this way.

Unfortunate, because I really would have wanted them if the proportions were right.

Even with 'realistic' proportions their legs and arms seem out  to me

 

 

Probably because you need to exaggerate the fine detail to get it to print, but then they haven't exaggerated the arms and legs to keep the look right

 

Victrix are known for having almost realistic proportions to thier plastics and they don't look out of whack like these do

There was also a comment from a guy who wrote historical books about Roman Legions etc.

 

It seems they are friendly in their answers, but it will not lead to changes.

It's all : we like how our models look and more like that.

There are enough people liking them to make the KS a succes so why bother making changes to attract even more buyers?

 

I'm not going in.

I don't mind realistic proportions - I do think they can work for minis. Look at some of Dark Sword's figures as examples.

 

The poses on these are really awkward and limbs aren't quite right. They remind me of Lego people with stiff joints.

You are just not used to looking at humans…

I worked out why they look wrong - because they've exaggerated the detail on the armour, but the legs and arms have been kept at realistic sizes

So they look like 5ft people in armour designed for people who are 7ft tall

      Another KS by 3dprintingDM Danny Herrero. In my opinion a vastly better deal than his last KS (which wasn't that bad to be honest).
      Just compare thisto this (and that's after less than 24h, there have already been lots of extra minis unlocked).
      There's also a Tier inbcluding the physical book (70$ as an EB, 80$ later).

      Story
      Welcome everyone to the Kickstarter campaign for Sun & Moon. Two highly detailed 1:20 scale (90mm) resin kits  cast in high quality resin. Sun Is roughly 100mm to the top of his head!
      Sun & Moon comparisment: Sun stands at nearly 100mm!!!
      This has been the project that has been the longest in the works and also our most expensive one to date! We could really use your help to bring these two kits onto the market so we do hope that you like what you see and will be able to back us and help us spread the word! :)
      Story
      Many years back, the idea to do some themed knights popped into my head and out of all of those, Sun & Moon were the ones that really stuck and kept coming back in my thoughts.  The idea to do two characters that are opposites of each other in every way really appealed to me. 
      Sun
      You have the Sun Knight, devout follower of the Sun God, a fiery and strong warrior with everything about him representing his deity. I can just see him painted in bright and warm colours that embody the very essence of the Sun!
      Moon
      And then you have the Moon Knight, a cool and brooding figure that operates under the cover of darkness, guided by the wisdom of the Moon Goddess. Very much a deadly warrior in her own right! Painted in moody hues that represent the colours that only moonlight can shower the world in.
