 I would like to post some ideas for Bruegelburg. a pack of street vendors, maybe a pack with some vendors and thier carts. Town administrative types, judges, heralds, the mayor a tax collector. Town Cryers, more beggers, packs of runnaway kids (pickpockets). I'd really like to see street preformers and festival participants. How about mounted knights or knights on foot. The city watch / police maybe? aristocrats and normal towns folk walking down the street. I know that was a lot, but I really like the scuplts you've done and thought that filling out the town would be cool

(*For a part* already posted as a comment to the 'new pirates' thread)

=> http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=250199
a rather appealing 18th C. 'female pirate captain / adventuress' and an even more... fanciful 18th C. female Assassin: both could have their way in any Pirate / Swashbuckling ('Gloire') / Gothic Horror (Carnevale http://vesper-on.com/index.php / A Touch of Evil http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/35815/a-touch-of-evil-the-supernatural-game) / Horror  http://anatolisgameroom.blogspot.fr/search/label/Strange%20Aeons%2018th%20century / Pulp / Science Fiction http://www.drunkendragoonproductions.com/18thcentimagi-nation/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=81 game set in the Lace Wars era,



=> http://www.drunkendragoonproductions.com/18thcentimagi-nation/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=79
 an unit of Lace Wars 'she-dragoons': not only they could be fielded in Imagi-Nation armies, but they could appear as 'Marinettes' in Pirates games, as well as in Petite Guerre skirmish games (such as e.g. the episodes of the never ending struggle between Lady Pettygree and Milady de Winter played by Bill Protz -BAR and D.A.F. -Minden Miniatures-  http://campaignsingermania.blogspot.fr/search?q=pettygree: so far Bill Protz has to resort to inappropriate Hinterland Victorian Hussarettes).



=> give her

(from <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/E_zjXvmyLWg&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/E_zjXvmyLWg&rel=1</a>)
a tricorne over a 'period' haircut

 a rapier and a pistol and you'll have a stunning (http://tinminis.com/Delia2010.jpg Cheesy)'pirette captain'.
A Steampunk variant could easily be obtained with an alternate head http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-4QfNLjPi3yc/Tq0BN2UdOyI/AAAAAAAAAnw/6yxgfKV11Yo/s1600/robida+le+vingtieme+siecle.JPG (perhaps with goggles?) and VSF weapons.


Ideally the 3 'characters' should be available on foot and riding (horses to be obtained elsewhere) as at a time it was practically the norm for minis of 'dungeon adventurers'.

All in 28mm: even if it makes them slightly smaller than, say, Minden miniatures, all the better, women are on the average more petite than men.


PS: Don't forget wargaming minis are NOT intended to be display case figurines to be scrutinized individually, but are intended to be used as playing pieces seen en masse from a distance: their most distinguishing features are to be... emphasized / underlined  Cheesy

 (as a form of poetic licence, let's forget that gravity is lower on Barsoom...)



Really *odd* how -while our hobby basically invites everyone -children included- to simulate wounding, killing, the maiming of human bodies- some prefer female miniatures to look androgynous. As if it was feminine beauty which was 'shocking', obscene, had to be toned down / hidden (from children?). On TMP vignettes of 'finishing off' a helpless wounded foe are displayed for all, children included, to see; but bits of unpainted metal or plastic 28mm high are concealed behind an 'adult filter'. Seems to reflect a bizarre perversion of aesthetic / ethical values, of what is really ugly / obscene, of what type of images children have to be protected, if that is the underlying reason of such censorship.

Thought some of those might make for some interesting Bruegelburg characters

A military type stalker with an gasmask/shield like this.
And more around 3:28 from METRO Lastlight.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/mON5WmA5REk&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/mON5WmA5REk&rel=1</a>
armed with an VSS Vintorez

(The scoped one)
Also I'm thinking a knife in the left hand ready to strike and the gun in a "holstered"position on the right.

The past is the future. DDR nostalgia. NVA, Vopos, KdA, young pioneeers and a token Trabant saloon. Would work well with the popularity of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and the Crooked Dice game. I'm sure the existing KGB types would double as the Stasi.

Ehm, er...well. What about sculpting some reinassance zombies, Ratnik? Cheesy
Let's say something like an undead-Landskenecht! It would be GREAT. And no one is doing something similar...I'm wondering why...  Grin

I would love to have a bagpipe player for the VSF range!

I guess most ranges have musicians, but I'm sure one with a Ratnik twist would be something really different!

It could double as some kind of experimental weapon...

Maybe it could shoot electromagnetic beams from the pipes?

I like the idea of street performers that elendil151 suggested for Bruegelburg ...

For the PA-Range I hope for this:

- Mean-eating Hunters (as evil guys)
- radioactive-tranformed Mutants
- radiactive-transformed Animals
- Kind of evil Cultists and followers

By the way, Igor, next week is christmas and this is my wishlist Laugh
