The ratmen are being physically sculpted, same sculptor as the Renaissance. Its been almost 4 months, so I am hoping to get some pics soon.

Yeah, like I said, I'm going to have a few test printed so I can do some side by side comparisons. My gut is saying maybe like a 33% reduction on the weapons, but we will see when I get the test prints.

Cool. Hopefully that will get the look right whilst still giving you sufficient thickness to avoid casting problems.

I still need to clean off some of the supports from the prints, but I thought I would snap some shots of them and do some size comparisons. Honestly...the weapons look absurd in the renders, but in physical form, next to my existing ranges, I think they fit quite well. Maybe the thickest part of the bow could be reduced slightly, but it looks extremely comparable to the bow size of some of my other stuff.

I'm super happy with how they turned out overall. The gap on the helmets is a wee bit small, but not sure I want to have him mess with the dimensions and depths, since I like the figs overall. I balked a bit at the price of sculpts+prints...but these look pretty nice

Extreme zoom, in of the helmet opening. Again, it is a little small, but I think I may have him leave it:

Comparison with some Onslaught from my (tremendous) pile of shame. The Athena suits incidentally look great for 6mm Fantasy also:

The figures look good overall but seem to have, as kenneth williams might have said, infeasibley large choppers!

Yes the weapons look a little on the large size atm, but when painted and based on mass i think they should look fine imo. Great sculpts byw ;)

I have one word to say though, goblins ;D

I like a lot of what you do, but I honestly think that archer 'at rest' is one of your best infantry figures to date. The main stem of the bow is still just a tad too big though. I would agree that you need to reduce it by 33%, as it currently looks as thick as his head.
His head and quiver are very good.

The guy with the slightly lowered sword, again, is fantastic. However it looks like a great weapon. Which is good in my opinion, but coupled with a shield, it would be a bit too big.

I got the prints of the first wyrmling sculpt today, they came out awesome. The only thing that may need tweaking is the hero's sword. As is, it is a bit thin, I am afraid it either won't cast well, or will be easily broken off.

The dragon fell apart seconds after taking the pic.

I also got the first heavy cav sculpt printed to see how it looked in the flesh. I am definitely happy with the rider and the overall sculpt, but the horse is a couple millimeters too tall, even taking into account the slightly thicker base. Other than that, the proportions are good I think. Here is a comparison with aa wood elf light cav and a Renaissance gendarme:

So if the height to the horse's shoulder is brought down, I think we will be in good shape.
