Feedback Thread for Elf Archer of Ancient Times Concept

Post by Karak Norn Clansman »

My brother has talked me into sculpting some pointy-eared 28-32mm stuff. First out seems to be a monopose archer (because I cannot handle unit sculpting as of yet, got to practice on simpler things than demanding Elfses - make one mini and clone it with master casts for the production mould):

Based on the style established for this planned greatswordsman Elf hero:

Command group, crouching archer and reloading archer are future possibilities if the first monopose one sells well enough.

Thoughts?

Main discussion as of currently.

Concept itself looks good. Be nice to see a couple of mock ups.

Sculpt is now finished. There are flaws with the pose which I couldn't fix without ruining the miniature, and of course the scale ended up on the 32mm level rather than 28mm, but it's off to casters':

I'm looking for a good painter willing to volunteer and paint a kit of freebie monopose archers as soon as the first production casts are finished.​ To a good standard and quite quickly upon receiving the freebie. See thread for details. The painter gets a freebie kit for his collection, I get photos of his finished archers for display purposes, because bare metal or plastic/resin grey miniatures are not a very interesting way of presenting your wares.

Are you interested?

Nice sculpt by the way - what other minis have you done?
