I think a bit of gender equality is called for here, either make all the victims nude or near nude, including the male figures or allow the female figures the same amount of clothing as the males. As wargames we have no problem with nude Gauls, Vikings and Natives but for fantasy it is OK for females to be nude but not males? Perhaps the best option would be for manufacturers to make bot nude and non-nude male and female figures and let the buyer decide who racy they want their dungeon to be.

Um…
They're metal figures.
You do realize that you just called for gender equality on metal figures, right?
If you don't like them, don't buy them.
I don't have any real use for them.
If you want even more extreme, well, there is always Brother Vinni's stuff….

Murphy,

Yes I am. Female figures do not feature strongly in my games so I want a male figure in the stocks or in the pillory to add colour to my skirmish games. I don't need a figure on a rack but if I did it would almost certainly be a male character not an over developed female. The question of the state of dress is of less importance although I would probably favour clothed figures since we game in a public building and some more prudish onlookers might take offense at nude figures.

Your suggestion of Brother Vinni figures supports my point, I would like a small number of modern captured military types for a hostage rescue situation. Brother Vinni makes a set of three prisoners of war which would be suitable were it not for the fact that they are all scantily clad females, now I know modern armies can include female soldiers but seriously are they the only ones who get captured?

Thanks for your comments. I will point out these are re-mastered miniatures from the dawn of the 1980's brought back to life. We have added nothing to them nor changed them. There are a couple of totally nude African male miniatures still to come as well as three codes never seen before dating from about 1984. Brought back to the world by request from fans of Tabletop Games who wished to complete or expand what they had.

But at least..unlike on Twitter..I am not being accused of actually encouraging torture.

Most of the torture items such as the Rack and Cage and Stocks are separate from the victims and can be had as single pieces on their pages.

Andoreth…
Rebel Minis makes 28mm prisoners that are not "scantily clad". You can also google 28mm prisoners or 28mm hostages and get quite a selection. And yes while most of them are female, there are also quite a few males too. Lastly, 3d printing and customized figures are becoming quite common and popular, you can always make a request for what you need there.
