Oy! They’re here and they’re cheap! One badass gang of anti-authority, shotgun wielding anarchists, just waiting to terrorize the streets and underworld of your favorite Modern, Cyberpunk or Sci-Fi themed game. Cheap thugs hired by the local mob boss? Rival gangs waging war on the streets of a dark metropolis? Guarding a warehouse filled with black market firearms or narcotics? Whatever nefarious business you have in mind, these guys are down for the job.
Good figure, Ryan. I took the free copy of rpgnow and then I bought another on your site.
I'm not an artist, a producer or a designer and I don't have any specific technical skills but even so I see clear improvements compared to the soldier (which it is already a good first figure). Bravo! Imho you have found the right proportions.
About your latest project ...
they are not GW wh40k space marines. They are sci-fi space/stellar marines in heavy armor. Everything else is a accidental coincidence. ;D
Excellent for many sci-fi wargames rules. "Known" and less known.
I I like only one single pose only for characters. For squads and larger units I believe that they should be at least three or more. So when I read "different poses" I am quite confident and very happy.
There is still something, few, in the figures that puzzles me. but now I can not identify what.
Not only the legs' proportion but also their position ( for example ). But there are several tips on this topic and in other threads about correct proportions. So I am sure that your final version will be great.
But "stellar marines in heavy armor", as well as the Halo's spartans are human beings, men and women, genetically modified.
So, imho, it is also important to remember the ratio between human and modified human.

Hi Rhannon. Thank you very much for purchasing the set! And thank you for your detailed feedback! What helped with the Punk was that I relied more on using messy circles when drawing to help me work out the correct proportions. Part of the problem I had with the Future Soldier was that I added the details before the proportions were correct and then it was harder to adjust them afterwards. Every time I draw a new mini I learn something new, either on the drawing side, or on the technical side (colouring on the computer etc.).
Since they are not officially 40K marines, and I was intentionally trying to make them a little different, I think it is okay that they are not super beefy like the genetically engineered mutants that are space marines. I think I was going more for the "baseball player" sized human in power armour.
OT: who are the other two artists?
Their names are Adrian (Canada) and Gaston (Argentina). I'm from Canada, but currently living in Japan.
The shoulders are too low for the amount of metal there's on them: the armor should be higher, at least at the ears level.
Yes, I think you are right, to me this makes their necks look a little long. I think if I adjust the head a little, and lower it into the armour a bit, it will look more natural. I'll see what I can do.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

wyvern: Nah, just rewatched the 1931 Universal "Dracula" movies (the Lugosi one and the Spanish version)
