Everyone must have one in their chosen faction. No mini range from PP is perfect. Each line contains some absolutely wonderful stuff but then so many missed opportunities ranging from the bland to the outright dire. PP is slowly working through the worst. We have a new Ashlynn. If it wasn't completely clear she looked like a complete mingmong before then it is now, the new sculpt is beautiful. Everything the model should be.
However, many models are simply not popular/important enough to warrant a resculpt so there are things which we all have to live with.
PP is a nice company though and they do read the things we say so I wondered, in a purely fantasy sense, what are the things you would like to see redone, even though you know they probably never will be.
My chosen poison is Talion and here are the things which given a magic wand I would like to see:
First Mate Hawk: All of the Talion solos are IMO fantastic. Characterful and each very close to their art. But poor Hawk... She could look like a dynamic swordswoman poised to kill, full of menace and barely contained lethality. Instead she's... bland. So very very bland. What happened?
Shae: Yeah, Shae. Many don't like the Fiona sculpt but I think it's OK. This guy is the boss of the Talion Charter. Maybe Montador has the cash and the letter of Marque, but Shae has the cool and his model, again is so bland and actually technically poor (see the lack of undercut around one of his legs where it goes into the jacket. A problem worked around beautifully on the Montador model (which is a far more detailed and characterful sculpt). The art for Shae is fantastic, especially the pencil drawings in the first NQ to feature the Talion... The model we got is like a drop out from Adam and the Ants.
Alternate Riflemen: You can have three per unit of Sea Dogs and so we have three that look... the same. There's nothing wrong with the model itself, it does the job. But there's only one and it looks pretty difficult to convert.
So, if you could see anything, anything dammit, for your faction redone, in a world of dreams, what would it be?
