That is awesome…what a wonderful sculpt.

I used to think that 15mm limited the sculptor's ability to create recognizable characters. Humbly, I stand corrected.

Sort of a not-Hit Girl?

McWong7323 May 2012 8:50 p.m. PST

Nice one

Thornhammer23 May 2012 9:47 p.m. PST

That's amazing detail for 15mm. I can put her to good use!

Lfseeney23 May 2012 11:02 p.m. PST

Nice, but have 40 bucks on order already.

Maybe after the July trip to Ireland.

Wow, thats tiny, great sculpt.

infojunky23 May 2012 11:25 p.m. PST

Great sculpt, too energetic for a miniature figure.

khurasanminiatures24 May 2012 4:54 a.m. PST

No such thing as too energetic, not if done correctly. grin

Eli Arndt24 May 2012 6:07 a.m. PST

Too energetic?

Gunbird24 May 2012 7:49 a.m. PST

Damn! And a great story as well.

I hope that's a giant penny in the photo, like the size of a frisbee!

Redroom24 May 2012 3:06 p.m. PST

well done

infojunky24 May 2012 4:30 p.m. PST

Too Energetic, yes.

I avoid figures that are in the act of falling over, or other large actions in the same way a lot of people avoid prone figures. The tend to take up more room than they should.

Save the energetic poses for those who only paint their figures for show. I play with mine and find more generic poses look better in the variety of situations my short little fellows find themselves in.

Dragon Gunner24 May 2012 5:51 p.m. PST

I agree with Infojunky.

Nice sculpt by the way.

Farstar24 May 2012 5:57 p.m. PST

Though she might be small enough that even at a comic book dodge she won't have any more table footprint than the adults.

khurasanminiatures24 May 2012 6:39 p.m. PST

The tend to take up more room than they should.

The model's base is exactly the same size as that on my other 15mm figures.

BlackWidowPilot Fezian24 May 2012 7:46 p.m. PST

This is a brilliantly executed figure IMHO, the wet blanket nay-sayers comments carry no weight with me, not even a penny's worth…evil grin

Tagged for acquisition when the JTFB is finally released; I need a plucky princess stand-in to lead at least one brigade's worth of troops…evil grin

Not Nay saying just using an example…..

As I ALSO Said Great Figure. And I probably will get one, when the cash presents itself.

khurasanminiatures24 May 2012 8:28 p.m. PST

Well actually BWP I don't think it's naysaying, like Eyvn says there are just customer preferences. I just responded to let him know that the more dynamic pose did not result in a big base.

And if you want a princess to lead the JTFB, I've got a queen! Sculpted by the same sculpy magician BTW….

BAH. They dared question Khurasan Miniatures and are therefore heretics I say, and I say BURN THEM! BURN THEM!!

And an august and regal personage for which I have been patiently waiting for for how long now…? Lessee, the Queen Herself, at least one of each JTFB fire team, at least enough sets of the Strapal levies to fill out a full-strength rifle platoon, nobles riding in grav chariots sufficient for at least a frontline command/support detachment, with plans to expand the quantities accordingly depending upon what is released and what the final price points add up to… <sigh> Ah, well, some day…evil grin

P.S. Took some shots of my finished Polecat earlier this evening. I'll post them in my online album along with other bits later today; the Polecat is finished in a two-tone desert camo spec, since everyone else has done theirs apparently in a temperate zone green spec, so I naturally just had to play the contrarian…evil grin
