Hi, continuing my quest to create female versions of my Galaxy's Finest Guard range, here is the latest photo update:
I very much appreciate the feedback I received on the initial WIP image. I have taken on much of the comments and am now showing a more complete version of these sculpts, they are still a little rough around the edges but I hope you can get the general idea and proportions. I'll get some more close up shots loaded asap.
All comments welcome.
Many thanks, V

ps. if you never hear from me again, it is because the GW hit squad took me out for including a Cadian in the pic

Those look great!

So glad to see a manufacturer who understands that female minis need different legs as well as torsos. Subtle difference, but it matters.

GW has a pretty bad habit of using the male legs for both men and women (or in the case of dark eldar it looks more like using the female legs for men).

The woman in flak armor looks awesome. I will definitely have to get some if I'm not in the poorhouse by then.

I like the head on the tannenburg lass as well. That hair style "fits" their uniformed look well. I probably wouldn't order any, but they still look good, and I'm sure others will snatch them up.

Great job as always. My only complaint is that they'll be in resin and all my men will be metal

Great proportions on those fems, I think you nailed it. The flak armour lady stands out as superior to me, but that could just be taste in the design.

I agree with Moustaffa on both counts, The woman in flak armour looks superb and i would certainly buy many. I think it's the rolled up sleeves and pulled back hair with goggles works really well together. Kinda make her look like a mechanic.

Hi i agree, the flak armor girl is outstanding! Think thats definately on the right track proportionwise. I am already looking forward to try paint them.

Now these are what I'm talking about. Excellent work here, Vic. I look forward to their release. Interestingly, the Tannenburger legs look very similar to the male ones? I can't quite tell with the rifle obscuring the waist area.

I agree with the above the girl in Flak is great she has that real rough and tumble look but still keeping a look of the female, the Tannenburg woman looks better but something is just not quite right as to what I cant put my finger on it though.

Maybe once we get the close up my help as to work out the issue.

Many thanks for all the comments. No, this regiment does not have a name or background, I'm open to suggestions

I hadn't been in dire need of female troops for my regiment before, but your sculpts are changing my mind, Vic. These looks great - both of them. And both are an improvement on the earlier one you posted.

Cheers. I have re-sculpted the feet and heads, and obviously added arms. Looking at these pics, I want to rework the Tannenburger torso too.

Loving the goggles headed lass. Looks female just by facial features alone, amazing stuff.

I'm not sure which of the many sculptors plying their trades out there are friends - or if so, how close, but I was thinking the other day that if you got Kev White or Tre' Manor to sculpt a few female heads in excahange for something you could do for them, it would potentially be quite a nice win-win-win for both sculptors and the buying public...

To be honest the torso on the Tannenburger is fine a bit bulky but some woman are in RL, I think it's the leg pose more than anything it just does not look right for a woman to stand like that

I put my hand across the legs blocking them out and the top half looks great no issues their at all, I think the pose itself needs to be reworked a little less spread if you get my drift.

You definitely have a seller here in both just a little tweak and they will be perfect.

These are the best female heads I've seen around (maybe pre RH?), by Brother Vinni. It's just a shame they're mostly masked and so few sculpts. I bought some and they're a tad off on scale though, a touch too small. Must be hard getting the faces right. He does commission work iirc if you wanted to outsource head sculpts to him.

Nice one, Victoria, much better! I think you're going to make quite a bit of money out of those! I sell so many bloody Cracking Hairdo sprues it would seem there's quite a market for lady soldiers - and mine aren't even GW scale!

Hey Vic, two questions.
1- The flak armoured regiment, will it be an all women regiment? If so i have a few background ideas if you're interested.

2- Seeing as the Victorian guard have commander Caine and the Broolians have Torgo, do you have any plans to give each regiment a "hero"?

*Crosses fingers for a Statuesque/Victoria team-up*

Regarding a name, perhaps the Blenheimmers? Thought it might be fun to continue the famous battle theme you've got going with the Tannenburg troops.

Plus, 'Blenheim Blithes' and the 'Blenheim Boys' would be fun WWII-style nickname for the female and male squads, respectively. P'raps Blenheim Braves for a mix?

Those are absolutely perfect, and, as everyone's said, the flak armoured soldier is especially fantastic.
I can't wait to pick some of these up!

Now just get a rounded type shoulder pad and we are in business! That way I can fit these models into my Cadian army.

The reworked legs are good. The arms tend to be most noticeable as most female soldiers wear baggy pants. I would welcome slightly thinner arms. Women, on the whole, are less bulky then men. There are exceptions.

I like the rolled up sleeves. Will you be doing an empty arms set so we can put in the weapon of our choice in the arms?

Will there be a slightly wider arm stance to hold special weapons like heat weapons or fusion guns?

Will there be a sprue of female heads?

Not your product, but still the same idea:




Are the arms female arms, or are your arms unisex? I ask because I got a twenty of your metal arms for a different project, and it didn't work out, but if the arms are the same, it saves me from re-buying them.

And I'd like to echo the call for a female commander. I'd so buy that as a CO for my force I'm building.

I think the new legs and waist look fantastic. It's really a subtle change, but it adds a ton to the model and makes them feel "right."

Will these be available in Resin, hopefully?
