    @Golem2God Och well i made a bit of minis but mostly non CB realated - Marvel Crisis Proctolog
    bit Back to CB
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    so it is a bit an effect of an actident that turn out to a 3 light neon glow study that turn out like a photo below ..
    [​IMG]
    yes i know who is on photo and what include full session (in case of this session actualy nice photos ) and what this performer do in move industry for years

    So you can c what going on on mini - Teal (actualy Aqua or azure blue or Printers Cyan )and Magenta half split and from back yellow orange glow light :) - would post a full body shot for better ilustrating look on a mini but Holly don't wont to work to much in SFW part of post so search on your own risk
    Skye Blue - Psychedelic
    With a correct Vinerte i could tell a story with this mini as a character go thrue a thight shop alley lit with owerwhelming neon signs - if i i get way to much time i may do it - it would be easy thing ;) - just 3 colours

    Gurls power - i mean shot :) - ols one looks like Kid :) - or just like 1.5 m with 1.75 cm group XD ... like they say strongest poisons comes in smallest bottles ;)

    so they looks a bit similar like the progres on HAQQ minis ghulams when you can track certain design over edicions - and ye a new one looksa bit GITS charactr - but never less :)
    ok from JSA army pack lest Biker and Riyken 9 unit .. currently on the table - i need to find some idea for them ... duno if i just whant to paint Motoko and Batou or go for something interesting .. and Biker .. o it is already in colours :)

    Hym now when you mentioned it .. Japan used a soldiers from 14 age and above in Okinawa battle and Kamikaze Pilots 17 and above . and JSA now stands for Japan Secession Army so this things could be possible. This adds an new unexpected flawor to this minis.

    Those two pics is where the size difference shows, the models in the extremes have the same leg pose. And specially in the back view, because the torso bulk is clear.

    Great work on those minis, @maru :)
    I really like the colours and the details - the look of missile launcher girl is really perfect ;)

    TBH I don't mind having minis from different editions and "scales" in Infinity and I think your full set of Keisotsu looks great. One problem is that weapons changed a bit.
    People are so varied in sizes that the differences doesn't bother me.
    For example:
    [​IMG]
    or ...
    [​IMG]

    And that's also why I like my older Janissaries with the new, big Missile-Launcher girl. And she's named Brienne ;)

    Cut all the heads and compare again. Oh, pardon, too much series influence.
    Align all them from the top of head instead of the feet, pay attention to the heads.

    Some miniatures work, some do not. Like that big brand that does miniatures without pelvis and huge boots, no match ever.

    Ha minatures go up but guns go smaller - old minis hold huge weapons , thing with faces is it is hard to paint well badly sculpted faces i got huge problems to paint nice oop Aleph minis from Steal phalanks especialy Torakitais - JSA got mostly nice faces from the beggining.
    @Mob of Blondes Cut minis or Actors ??
    if minis maind that old Keisotsu tend to be in a crouching pose
    if it gets to old Vs new i can get you a funn progres of Ghulams Minis - i think i lack only one box of Ghulams the SWC box (or even not need to check ) - they change proportions get bigget then smaler then thiner then biger again
    and if you look at actres that portrayed Brienn - she got small head even fot a 5.3 and she is like way bigger XD

    Cut actors, the heads vary less than the bodies. The minis do not look too bad in your picture, the corner ones in first and second picture (both with legs spread) could be Maise Williams (wearing heels in the picture, so >1.55) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (1.88) if played by actors.

    Nah, Faye is way more slutty than Motoko.

    Classic Shirrow GITS or SAC GITS (best version IMHO)?

    Thing is ppl recognize mostly a specyfic outfit for Motoko - aka iconic one - vest , Swimsuit and high boots / pantyhos - all grey purple with skin exposed on sides - it ia actual recoloring of original tagikoma driver outfit - a milky white one
    Butt - Ryuken 9 mini is not sculpted like this it is almost exact copy of image below just with unzipped west
    [​IMG]
    end with lest Dallas / Dynasty style shoulders padding XD
    and a mix of this bellow minature
    [​IMG]

    so the armour parts - the round elements (ports ? or just impact armour ) is stright from Shirow design - but with more modern cut of the mini below
    Yes it is possible to paint it with skin exposed but for nice look it would require converting - or just painting parts that are cloths as skin and then cheating by painting shadows as it was cut in instade even - this could took way to long.
    O and there is famous Red Motoko but this would clash way to much to my jade green Theme of JSA
    End yes i spend way more time in concept phase then most of ppl - this helps avoid stiupid errors when you at last sit to paint and allows to doge out of traps on the way way ahead as you can predict them.
    I encountered so many painters that paint them selves in to corner as they start then get to a point and get stuck as they do not predict something or make a stiopid error at beggining (colour selection or deciding focal points ) but decide to continue and c how it would end - this works for simple forms you can paint in this way simple Bust or "flat mini " - but more complicated things can be nasty.
    if someone whant to improvise good idea is to skech things as this can be easy washed out / repainted - but over all Good plan what to do before you even start to do and ten adjusting things as you go ends with most efficient time spend with brush and lest errors.

    Maybe I am being distracted by the girl's blueish hair compared to the guy's blackish, both against the black background.
