Hi all!
Jungle fighters. First set of "Female Brigade"

I came into this assuming that they'd have their tits hanging out and was not surprised to see I was right.

Is it too much to ask to have a selection of female models we can use in public without making people's wives/girlfriends/mothers and in general store owners mad at us?

If i may add to this thought,

I don't quite understand you Vinni I just don't.

you do good work, let it not be said that you don't yet you spend a lot time with half or fully naked girls. I don't say that from a moral point, but a practical one.

that niche of wargameing is saturated, if i typed 'female, 28mm model' I find Chease cakes more often then not. (and once I got a picture of what i like to think of as a surprised mark V female) frankly, I don't thing your doing enough to differentiate your self, and your good enough that i feel you deserve to be differentiated and known for more then just your model pinups.

yes you make other stuff, your Landsknechts range is surprisingly extensive and well done if i had a Empire army I'd look at it for commanders (assuming it's heroic scale to mesh right), but people who play pike and shot era games would likely go to other company that sell larger kits, like warlords game Imperialist Infantry, but I'm blowing smoke, i have no idea what your sales number are like, and if you keep makeing models like this then you must be selling them, so good on you.:victory:

I'm just saying, that if you had some sisters of battle for say, double irritating since you actually made four of them for your portfolio, I (and likly a few hundred more given just how bloody hard sisters are to proxy and that your only major competition are still made of bloody metal) would get a full squad double quick!

i felt like I've said this before, lord knows I'm the kind of person who writes a post, but changes his mind before posting and walks away before saying anything so i might have but never posted it. If i have said it before, well bad on me then and i do apologize for. . . well being this guy :ireful2: but, I don't think i have so I'll say my piece and. . . fade away. . .

Is it too much to ask for a miniature producing company or individual that doesn't treat women like objects?

I appreciate the talent and workmanship that went into sculpting these, but I'd prefer seeing miniatures that can fit into the 40k universe as seamlessly as possible. I'm an adult with an active sex life and a love for porn, so perhaps I just don't need to be aroused by miniatures. I'm willing to entertain the notion that nudity in art has its place, but so many of these miniatures are just charicatures of women: huge rack, naked for some reason, in some sexual pose. I must point out that Vinni's sculpts don't have horrible looking gargantuan breasts, and they're ready to fight, which is sort of why I don't understand why the sexual aspect was included at all.

That all being said, if other people enjoy titties on the tabletop, enjoy those titties.

Look at the new releases at CMON: https://www.coolminiornot.com/shop/

Maybe this isn't perfectly indicative of all mini releases, but 9 of the new releases displayed on that page are topless women. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and read popular search phrases and find the terms "girl" "female" and "nude". The majority of search terms aren't sexual, but a chunk of them are.

Having no real data to base this on, it does seem that selling naked women minis can be somewhat lucrative... whatever that means in this situation.

"Sex sells" (or so the claim goes), especially to nerds. I prefer stuff I can share and enjoy publically without looking like I'm some kind of pervert. It's easier to explain why I have Daemons on my painting space than topless women anyways.

They are out there, though it is unfortunate you have to look so hard sometimes.

Studio Mcvey has done some nice female models as well with actual clothes on.


Christ knows who buys all these other models but i guess they sell well enough to keep churning them out.

On topic: Sculpts look good, but i'd love to see more girls who actually look like they are in a warzone rather than escaping from the set of 'Ramboner'

I really like the female sculpt you did for the post apoc citizens in the Nuclear sandlot *cough*fallout*cough* range. I'd like to see more of those.

Horah Guard, +1 for the nice ass thrown into the mix. Take that Astartes, what are all you Power Armor Noobs gonna do about it. Dare you SOB fans to try the same :p

On that note surely is interesting that this is legal, I know more than one TT player/feminist who will be making a fuss over these. Still, will make a nice addition to my collection.

Vinni... you're a great sculptor. Purely from a sculpting standpoint, these are very well done. But seriously, dude? This looks like something that crawled out of a porno forcing itself onto 40k. Nobody could actually take these models out and play with them in public, and honestly, I always found the people who are like "heh, heh, I'm gonna sit here and paint 28mm scale boobehs" to be amongst the saddest of basement trolls.

I like boobs as much as the next guy, but you might want to offer versions with at least bras on (which they'd wear if they were fighting...) if only so people can have models they can play a game in public with...

You can close your eyes when I flash my junk in public, but it doesn't change that I'm waving my dick around, just like how it doesn't change that these models are sculpted this way if you cover them with green stuff. They're well sculpted, but really have no place in gaming. I'm not a prude. Fuck, I'm as lecherous as they come. I just think being the nerd going "teehee look at the little bewbs!" on plastic spacemen is creepy. It's one thing when it makes sense on the models, like on daemonettes or the Sisters Repentia who literally only are covered in prayer vellum because the only protection they need is the Emperor's. But random Guardsmen have no business being naked.

I know. I was just making a smart ass remark. Sorry if I hit a nerve.
