I recently painted some 15mm Minifigs from the early 90's,and most probably made in the 80's. By todays standard,they probably lean toward mediocre,but when painted the same way as my Essex(which,while probably from the same time period,are excellent sculpts)they look pretty sharp. As others have said,I have seen some excellent figures whose paint left much to be desired,with the overall effect that I would think the paint is at least as important as the sculpt. I'm not trying to put down anyones painting ability,but there definately is a difference,IMHO.

To me, quite frankly, I'm not all that concerned. My figs run the gamut from very primitive sculpts to a few modern and rather exotic ones. For me, as long as they are painted reasonably, I have never been concerned too much about sculpting.

I know that a lot of people on TMP really get bent out of shape about this issue, but, frankly, I wonder how many of them are sculptors and minis manufacturers who are really just trying to push their product. I started gaming in 1980, and had enormous fun with Heritage and Minifigs. I wish I could find some of those old figures now, and especially the Rankin-Bass inspired goblins. They were primitive, but gaming was grand in those days.

On a scale of 0 (doesn't matter at all) to 10 (it's the only thing that matters), how much does a good sculpt matter to you?
