She'll go nicely with the following mini's, already on sale:

Kev is a great sculptor and while he's done his share of the heaven-forbid-this-smut cheese cake, I've yet to see them put out a horrible sculpt.

Hasslefree had to have a fixed post here, so people could see how much awesome stuff they release

And they should do a kickstarter for plastic grimm, but that is a different matter

I'd rather not see Hasslefree get stuck in a KS and instead do what they always do: A couple of releases a month, it has been working like a charm for them for years now and I'd rather they'd keep it like that.

It's pretty rare that there's a tasteful sculpt of a woman in this hobby, and Hasslefree does great work. Good on 'em.

In due time, knowing Kev he's working on a few projects at the same time, so we can expect more moderns later down the road.

Like others have said, it's nice to see a female soldier who looks like an actual SOLDIER rather than a supermodel.

Well, she looks like a regular human being.

As far as looking like an actual female soldier, I don't know so much about that.

I don't think you have anything to worry about there. From a couple of comments I've seen on Frothers, he's really not a fan of KS.

Funny enough Sally made a post on Facebook about it all today:

So, he says knowing he's about to fuel a serious rumour mill, let's say we had a project that a Kickstarter would actually be useful for - minis, a game, more - how far into the production process would you prefer us to be before we launch such a campaign?

So many Kickstarters fail their due dates, lots are just showing artwork or renders that will never be as good in person etc. Would you be happy waiting 3 months, 6 months, longer? Would you want one big Kickstarter for everything planned or broken up into lesser ones?

(Please note we're not asking for ideas 'for' a KS, we're asking your opinion on the logistics First person to suggest that Kev starts a Kickstarter for their own personal mini fetish get's a virtual slap )

I adore all of this new stuff Hasslefree is coming out with. The attention to detail, realism and great scaling makes for an excellent miniature. Shame they take so long to get everything sculpted though!

Looks awesome to me. Can't make an army out of one model but it's a nice start at least!

This is quite possibly the best female soldier model I've seen. THough I wonder why she has two sets of goggles? One normal ballistic gogglesl, one NVG, or something?

I'm fair sure that Artemis from Artemis Black's is working with them to help run things as well. Also pretty sure he wrote the FB post.

I believe that the set on her face are actually sunglasses.

Awesome miniature, as usual from Hasslefree.

I was wondering the same thing, and only Kevin knows for sure. My theory is that she is wearing ballistic eyewear glasses and has sand/sun, wind, and dust goggles on her helmet.

Most modern ballistic eyewear looks cool and soldiers like them. They aren't much good, however, against blowing dust and sand. The goggles, OTOH, don't stop much shrapnel but they keep out sand and dust. I had pairs of both though I rarely ever used the sand, wind, and dust goggles. Later, they were replaced by ESS brand goggles which also offered some ballistic protection.

The secret to painting a really big army is to keep at it. You can't reach your destination if you never take any steps.

I'd like to see a game with the figures in there. Love the sculpt and want a few for my zombie hunter crews.

1.) It's a awesome sculpt

2.) I've seen lots of soldiers and marines wearing sunglasses/ballistic glasses with their goggles on their helmets just as shown.

I had to check twice and see any differences to the female troopers already released. But they are classified as SciFi troopers.

Looks great, and will go well with Kev's Battlefield 3 range. It'd be good to see some optics on that rifle though, and I'd also like to see some more (uniform) weapon options for the moderns, (and new sculpts!) since they really only work as PMCs at the moment. (since everyone uses railed M4s these days, and without the carrying handle.)

Wow, these are great. And I like how you have male models to mix them with and they will look like a natural cohesive unit opposed to a unit of men with a costumed stripper with them.

I love how the head and face is clearly female simply by keeping it simple. So many female heads fail because they go for crazy cheekbones, oversized lips and overdone eyes which result in scary looking faces. This head just looks human which is clearly female.

Holy Gak! I bought those already for sale, and these are must buys. As for the poster above who said one mini is not an army: true. But with, say Infinity, I can use most of Hasslefree's minis as convincing stand-ins that are completely acceptable. My FRRM is graced by three of them already, and I'll be using these for Briscards as well.

The sci-fi troopers would make great Loup-Garous.
