Nice figure. But for some unknown reason, i feel your distinctive style here (oversized legs/feet) not effective as usual... while it usually bring on me a feeling of "power", of "taking the ground", here it just makes me searchin for "what is wrong?" It's an undefined feel and i'm not able to explain better.
Sorry to hear that Parduz I was rather pleased with them (despite my physical restrictions when making them). Hopefully the rest of the squad won't be too disappointing!
Oh, don't be afraid They are very well drawn and colored as usual. It is just the disproportion that, contrary to all your other figures, bother me a bit.... perhaps this time is a bit too much... i just can't tell why. Anyway i did'nt want to say that i don't like them.

I was curious, so I did a quick print on him. Looking down from above, I think he looks fine. I honestly hadn't noticed his lower legs and feet being disproportionate until Parduz's note. I guess I was just thinking bulkiness of the hazard suit.
I think this guy can be released AS IS
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Hey guys. Thanks for the criticism-the hood is meant to be pretty tight fitting to the head in my design, so I can see why you wanted it 'stretched'. I think it may be the image I posted-when compared to the same figure from my builds, the eyes and top of head (inside the black border) align fine. Again, thanks for the criticism, but as this is an example of a mini that will be in a sale set, can I please ask that you don't do any mods and wait for the finished model? Also, as this is a commercial set I would appreciate it if you asked me before modding any of the models contained in it. Cheers, A

He's in keeping with your other work..... the foreshortening gives all of your models a certain physical presence. Big stompy feet, it's kind of a signature! Gives them a real comic book feel, hard to describe what it does, but I think the best way is to say the minis seem to have real 'weight', they really stand out on the table.
Definitely crisp design with a high production value. But I can understand Parduz' concern. This guy could have a serious neck problem - or no neck at all. I would imagine him stretching his neck forwards. Then there could be a shadow under his "chin". But maybe this is much too much "could" and "would" ;D. Never mind.

Hey Hackbarth! They sketches are literally on my drawing board, I am just trying to fit them into the schedule-I have a bunch of commissioned stuff to catch up on after the back issue, but rest assured they are on the list! ;D
Hey folks-posted this in industry news but just in case... DARKMOOK MINIATURES are featured in an article on paper gaming in the April/May 2011 issue of BATTLESPACE Strategy Gaming Magazine. Check out the issue at www.gauntletmedia.com/BattlespaceAprMay2011.pdf
BATTLESPACE is a great online magazine covering all aspects of gaming and is available in both Flash and 88 page PDF formats from their website www.thebattlespace.com/ Go take a look!
Ahoy! Well, I am finally getting back to normal, so expect more sporadic postings over the coming months LOL! Work is ongoing with the Wolf pack, the game has undergone it's final updates (hopefully!) so it's now down to writing a legible rulebook and re-texturing the board. I have also been tinkering with the Urban Wizard sets for the Occult Terrors line. They are shaping up to be produced as 'mini' sets-the magic user casting and non-casting, either one large adversary or a couple of standard sized enemies, a diorama backdrop and the new 'Occult Stone' bases I have worked up. I have 3 sets in the planning stages, and did a construction test for one already-The Amazing Zandi on his flying carpet basing option:
Glad to hear your getting back into the swing of things, and this guy looks great.
Just seeing the guy int he air and thinking about what you described reminds me of Matthew Patel, from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Demon Hipster chicks FTW !! No seriously, make some Demon Hipster chicks to go with one of your wizards
Hey folks! After requests, I am planning on putting together a couple of compilation sets of my human horror figures along with some new exclusive minis. The first contenders for these are: APA Agent Freeman
APA (Agency for Paranormal Activities) Agent Freeman. Equipped with a machine gun, hand gun, Spirit Disruption Grenade and years of combat experience, he is a veteran member of the APA Special Assignment Field Team APA Agent Griffiths
APA Agent Griffiths. Equipped with a machine gun, hand gun, Spirit Disruption Grenade and her latent psychic abilities, she is a key member of the APA Special Assignment Field Team
I see the Agents from the Horror Within set as members of the APA as well...
Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
