Vinni is in Slovakia.

I don’t think he’s worried?

Were I more of a TMNT fan, i'd jump right on these, as they're pretty fantastic sculpts.

Small update for anyone waiting for a Black Friday order.

I got an email on the 9th (4 days ago now) that my order had been shipped. Expected travel time was 10 days. So keep an eye out people.

They are beautiful.

I may have to see which SAGA army uses them. I guess it is the Last Romans or whatever faction is the Byzantine Empire.

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'm not opposed to nudity or nude minis, but what's the deal with the comically large breasts? If 11 years with my ex-wife taught me anything, it's that women with large breasts (comic or otherwise) aren't engaging in combat (or most physical activity) without some form of support, to say nothing of, I dunno... armor?

There's a certain, I believe largely anime-inspired, section of the community that seems to think that boobs are better the bigger they are, regardless of how absurd it looks.

The thing that always gets me about this sort of model/figurine/etc, is the heels. Like, I can understand the oversized breasts. Were you to find yourself in a combat situation with them, then I'm sure you could just walk up and stab whoever you're fighting, as they'd likely be a bit on the distracted side.
But why bollocks are you going into combat 5 inch heels? Can't stab no one (distracted or otherwise) if you've got a sprained ankle.



Despite all that, Vinni does make excellent minis. I've bought a few of them and while i've only painted up one, the others are all perfect quality and really nice in size and form.
If you're thinking of placing an order, I do recommend it!

You must be too young to remember the Solid Gold Dancers then!

A lot of people enjoy Combat Heels - statistically significantly more then those who enjoy Tactical Rocks.

Pretty sure they're mithril boobs and lighter than you'd expect them to be.

It's a fantasy pinup miniature. Why bother nitpicking where it's pointless ?

Yep, she's fully sexualized and that's her appeal. If you want realist female warriors, may I suggest you to look elsewhere ?

Being a pinup doesn't make it immune to cricisim. It looks absurd, even by pinup standards.

It's only 'sexualised' if you're attracted to balloons full of water.

The complaints aren't that it's overly sexual. The complaints are that it looks ridiculous.

Well, leave that pleasure to them and keep moving. Most of the criticism about it is just a matter of taste, actually. You know realism isn't the real issue here, it's just an excuse to complain it exists.

In the end, Brother Vinni does what Brother Vinni always did. That there are still people moaning the same complaint and wasting their time to do it here is actually the amazing part to me.

As for myself, I don't mind ridiculous big boobs on a naked elf fighting with two oriental swords. It's fantasy, anyway, and I've seen similar silly yet sexy stuff in video games anyway.

If he ever made the male version with a barbarian with a 2-foot long erection I might just get it for the lulz.

I picked up the fornicating river monsters just for the looks on their faces. The missus didn't see what was quite so amusing about it, that's not my problem.

There are a fair few models in BV's range that are both sensibly dressed and proportioned, so that comment hardly holds. If Vinni only produced figures like this, many people would indeed not bother checking in on new releases, as they wouldn't be of much interest to them. As other parts of the line are the type of models they might enjoy (e.g the shieldmaidens http://www.brother-vinni.com/shop.htm#!/Shieldmaidens/p/53693944/category=14147797 and archers http://www.brother-vinni.com/shop.htm#!/Arrow-Wives/p/83656340/category=14147797), they do. In addition, I can't remember the last time I saw a figure of this company that looked quite so ridiculous. Others are either merely naked, or pin-up style unrealistically dressed so as to be more sexualized, but there aren't many, if any, others that look so silly.

If the unrealistic part is not to people's taste, how is it not a valid complaint?

Because it's just not to their taste and they want it removed for everyone. That's why.

And yeah, Brother Vinni does covered miniatures as well. He also does the Victim Girls : http://www.brother-vinni.com/shop.htm#!/Victim-Girls/c/5965007/offset=0&sort=normal (link to NSFW stuff, naked girls in various troubles).

He's not really focused on one thing, since he's working for a lot of various projects. This is his thread for all of his news, can be safe, can't be as well. Hell he even made turtles out of nowhere. I'm pretty sure the ones interested in his miniatures already know about that, so the fake outrage here is really getting boring in the end.

I’m not outraged , I don’t want it removed from existence, I just think it’s silly and I’m expressing that. The only censoring here is you telling us we cannot express ourselves or our opinions. Get your facts straight. I also make fun of silly designs by GW and other manufacturers.

As opposed to wanting the complaints removed for everyone?

I've noticed something when there's an argument about divisive minis: there's the people who don't like it, and the people who don't like that people don't like it. The people who read someone else's criticism of someone else's mini and take it far too personally. Don't worry, I'm sure Vinni has plenty of customers lined up for this mini. He's alright.

But it's weird, Sarouan, and it's obvious why. Normally you'll find the responses to a well-sculpted mini to skew positive, but when most of the visible 'subjective opinions' are "er, that's a bit much", you've got to wonder if there's a point in there. It can't just be a conspiracy of church ladies and Jezebel writers.
And that's it: people aren't shouting for it to be removed. People aren't screaming for Vinni to be cancelled. They're just saying that they find the mini unrealistic and ridiculous, and poking fun. It's a thing that invites fun-poking. They've expressed why the mini isn't worth their money, or something they want in their collection. Can you express why someone would have it on their shelf, rather than ironically labelling other posters 'censors' who shouldn't speak?


Automatically Appended Next Post:
And yeah, those Saga minis are nice. I won't buy them because I gave up on dark age historicals. Is that okay with everyone? Just checking.
