Looks like someone needs to find a model who has a natural rack.....I hate the plastic globe look even in minis.

In theory, I agree, but in practise, when the plastic globes are resting in my hand or pressed up against my face, I haven't ever complained.

Shame how principles don't always stand up in the face of life's harsh realities...

Those are awesome looking! Like the first alien.

All are great.


Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.

If the first alien were to have some sort of wingy looking thing and a tail added, it would make a great Zenethian Soulslayer proxy!  The green thing with headwrap would be a good basis for a Golem of Darkness.

For non-WZ comments, Mr. Walky-Fish is cool, as are the Spartan-esque warriors.  The goule in the last pic is solid as well.  Overall, great work!

The first two remind me of Pumpkin Head and the creature from the Host/relic.

You are putting my never-gotten-off-the-ground Golem proxy out of business!
But for good reason-that is a better fig!

Thanks Veezcon industries for your support at Talamania!!

Back to Coal Man:  Those are cool.  The alien is ace, and the fantasy models are going to see battle.  I like the Ghoulie, but I'd paint him up as more human, at least after I buy my copy.   ;D

I love the "not-Pumpkinhead" figure.

Looking like you're building up a nice catalog, Andy!
