 Nice sculpt.It would work well as there are no others out to use so any and all are very welcome into the Blackblood family.Might need a head swap though.

I agree there.  On frothers, some people didn't like the head at all, much less in the context of the Blackbloods.  Still, it's better than nothing.

 I put some of the Cyclopes Forge ones together last week and they are massive compared to the Chronopia ones.Mine were made from resin and a git to glue.Not sure if it might have been the release agent used on the resin.

@ Manic_Miner:  Could you post a size comparison photo of the Cyclopes Forge one and the "standard Chronopia" ( I honestly can't believe I just wrote standard Chronopia :o)ones?  I'm thinking about pushing some coin on Cyclops Forge minis and this would help in making my decision. 

@ any Forum member:  Also a size comparison of any of Franseco's(sp?) minis next to some Chronopia/Warzone minis would be a good thing to put in the Cyclopes Forge Mini Thread for other members/guests.  I would do it if I had any.   :-\

 I will try to post some pictures for size reference.The Cyclopes Forge ones are way bigger than the Chronopia ones.Very nice sculpts though.The rest of the standard miniatures from Cyclopes forge tend to be smaller scale compared to the original Chronopia ones.
 Francesco has done a very good Elf Spearman sculpt which is not yet up on his shop.Very slender compared to the Tim Prow sculpted Elves.

I'll post pics of the Lotus Guard from Cyclopes Forge next to the standard (hee hee!) Elves we know and love.

I can also do that for the Deathseekers.

Joshuaslater, can you please post those pics of size comparison.

I too would like to see them, plus any other cyclopes forge stuff you have.

Okay.  Time to get the digital camera out and rock some photos of Cyclopes Forge, and some other goodies out there.

How about Balor of the One-Eye, for Celtos, go look up that model and see what you think. He has 2 'razor swords', and is the right size and by the same sculptor (and looks like an ogre)

I dug up the Reaper ones last night in a box in the basement.  I should be able to take pics of all the models you want next to the appropriate Chronopia ones.   ;D

Color me interested too Josh. 

By the way, are the Lotus Guard figures still available for purchase?

Well I don't think they are quite big enough to be Ogre Elite, but I've got some sunshine today to take the pics.  Been busy with family and away from my toys.


Edit:  I took the photos finally.  I'll upload them to photobucket and link them tomorrow.  My computer is slow as hell tonight.
