Yeah, just insert tactical crate and she's good to go.
Or since she's an inquisitor, find a hunchback to shove under her boot and say it's an acolyte or somesuch.

I was thinking more of Irina's Thousand Sons pieces, she vanished a while back. Or the Russian Sororitas, which have been doing the rounds on Ebay for a while. Both of those have popped up on recasters sites before.

Like I said, it is possible the stock is all licensed. I would just be surprised if that was the case, purely on the basis that they would seem to have tracked down some extremely obscure third party producers. If they managed to do all that, they have some serious networking skills.

On their website linked earlier, there is a spot where they say the sculpts are all licensed/approved.

Not really.. I mean.. all it takes is for them to have a forum and then whenever someone meets a new sculptor at a show or whatever, get them in. Some of them are also sculptors that work for a company like Raging Heroes or Maxmini or Puppetswar and then branch off. Titan-Forge mentioned that they were friends with Puppetswar and the guys that were showing off those awesome Dwarves are sculptors from Ragingheroes. That's not really any weirder than Mark Moondragon being friends with Paulsongames or John Bear Ross or Harold Crossley from Clear Horizon.. which, as far as I know they all at least somewhat know each other.

I've been meaning to order from these guys for a while. sure they may be a little IP-infringey but the sculpts are unique and the cast quality is fantastic from what I've heard.

Still, even if they have licensed the sculpts, that doesn't mean the sculpts themselves are free of issues - recognise the front of this guy's gun from anywhere?

Regardless, I'm going to have to order some of their products soon, there are almost no manufacturers for Gothic-future vehicles out there, most companies even doing sci-fi 28mm vehicles are going for the very clean Fifth Element/Infinity style.

Looks like they updated their site since I visited it one or two weeks ago.

The 28mm version of the 48mm Tech-priest is new - I guess I'll order one (the pin-up alternative may be funny but it's not something I'd actually put on the table).

Well, the DKoK zombies are converted original models too. There are... MANY issues.

See, I'm just not sure I buy it. Anyone can write anything on a website. And given the IP issues stated above, the authenticity of the IP of some of the models isn't exactly without question.

More specifically, I've recently seen most of this particular range pop up for sale recently twice before (on ebay and on a separate webstore), before being shut down (I assume due to being recasters). So when that particularly unique assembly of third party pieces pops up yet again under a new webstore name, well, you can understand my skepticism.

Having said that, I'm not saying I have a massive problem with it, so long as it stays as being hard to find pieces, like Irina's. If the original sculptor hasn't sold them in years, nobody is being hurt. And they seem to be commissioning their own stuff as well, so it adds to the market. I just don't necessarily believe it's all been licensed appropriately.

Absolutely. I like powerful ladies, but unless their power is stored in their gravity defying cleavage, I'm happy with realism.
Just as some of the most characterful male figures out there are not Herculean perfection, I'm happy with female figures that could be actual people I know.

So basically they invent some suspender tech to levitate saggy breasts that have been filled with what looks like actual melons or coconuts.

Yet for some reason they can't invent some rejuvenating treatment to ensure everything just stays tight and young?

Sounds like lazy design/sculpting to me, which is a bummer since the rest of the model is quite decent.

There's juvenat treatments, once common enough that soldiers of the Crusade got them, but now only reserved for the rich and powerful.
