Hey folks! Here are the first two minis I've produced. As stated before, my buddy Raph is the artist. I take his pen drawings and make them into minis with a combination of Photoshop tricks and color. These took me...forever and honestly burned me out, but I think my batteries are just about ready to finish the set. Then I just need a game to put them in...
First is Abel, leader of the Pale Riders
Second is Kane, leader of the Undertakers
Enjoy! Feedback more than welcome. (Sorry if this is the wrong forum, wasn't positive...)
They say post-apocalyptic western fantasy sci-fi to me for certain. It just occurred to me, have you ever watched an old anime called Trigun? It is also a post-apocalyptic western fantasy sci-fi series with aliens, mutants, and robots.
To me, these would look right at home in the Superfriends episode my son was watching earlier - set on the futuristic/old West planet of Texarkana. The evil posse was composed of meat men & robot men, and robot horses. Now, there was no magic users involved in that particular episode, but there's plenty in that old cartooon corner of the DC universe.
Although, come to think of it, they remind me of a book I have: "The Twist" from Richard Calder (also author of Dead Girls/Boys/Things, an offshoot of the cyberpunk movement). Post-apocalyptic weird west. I may dig that out again...
You know, I've seen a few episodes of Trigun here and there but never sat down and watched it. I'm sure I'd like it. Post-apocalyptic western fantasy sci-fi is right about where I was going, so glad that worked! LOL. Their is some Biblical-fantasy going on as well that doesn't come across with these characters without context (four horsemen et al).
Anne, I don't know that one! Which is odd because I watched that show all the time as a kid. Also have not heard of "The Twist". Will have to look it up! Was a HUGE fan of BraveStarr, though. Not many 80s shows (let alone cartoons) had a First Nations hero!
Anne, no...totally unfamiliar with that. Bizarre style!
Hehehe, it's actually a recent project done by graduating students of a media arts college, in part an homage, in part a parody of many of the strange sci-fi flavoured cartoon offerings of the 80's/early 90's. I was confused when I first saw it, thinking it was one I'd missed, but now I can only wish it was real I especially love the keytar... erm, keySWORD!
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)
