Battle ready minis.

Made the right choice to lead with the gratuitous butt shot first.
I might not like it, but it did get me to stop in and comment about it.
They definitely spent some extra time modeling that booty.
I appreciate that. Wish there wasn't a butt cape, though.
I'll wear armor that completley protects me, except for my butt.
And a boob window, so you can take a random arrow to the heart.
The high heels and nipple spikes are also extremely important.
Actually it's r/impracticalarmour
Had no idea taht was a subreddit. Thanks.
It's OK whatever hits that is gonna bounce right off
Came here to say the same thing, just why?
Beautifully designed mini, that's the only [drum roll] "but".
Same here. I get that some people like to be titillated, but when you're just looking for a badass mini for your female character it can get really depressing how they're all just soft porn for 13yr old boys.
And here I am having a hard time finding minis like this. Where are you guys looking that you see them so often? Help a brother out.
I see people are complaining on how cool this mini is! To fix that I suggest you op to design a full body plate armor that is so tight it doesn't change normal body shapes. This way both the functional armor fans and sexy pinup thiccness enjoyers can find a middle ground. Maybe do some "monthly mini" stuff where you desing something different each time as a test and check the community's reaction? But being honest, this is so good I'd just keep going. Btw do you have any muscular snake ladies?
The high heels... I know y'all are commenting higher up but(t)... Going to battle with high heels? Not really...
The sculptor (OP?) is clearly a leg guy/girl.
And/or too young to remember the "Power is nothing without control" ad
Why the hell is her ass out like That
Skeletons Haven't dropped any butt armor yet. Bad rng I suppose.
The next time my players fight undead, they'll be exclusively wearing assless chaps, in you honor.
The undead will, not my players. Unless they want to, I don't kinkshame.
I thought it was pants tbh
I'm pretty certain she has pants. You can see clothing wrinkles on the back of her knees.
Boots, my man. Those are boots, notpants. Thigh high boots.
Why the hell does the armor on most minis look like it does? 99.9% of minis don't have functional historical armor, or even anything close. Its just how the designer wanted it to look.
It's almost like, "It's just how the designer wanted it to look".
It just looks so clearly sexual. I don't paint minis to jack my meat off to
Personally, I like both camps, but in the far ends. I want fully clad armored up minis that look badass, and I also want my succubus to actually be (fully) naked and fully sculpted because that's what it should be.
The whole armored bikini thing is just ridiculous, like the sculpter clearly wants to make sexy models but isn't going through with it, and they clearly put time and effort into the armor and weapons but don't commit to making that as good as it could be either.
Like cmon. Either give me somewhat realistic armored models, or realistically alluring models. Nobody chooses to do pinup in full plate male, and nobody is going into battle in a battle bra and panties.
To make it equally fair, give me a big armored man with a crusader helmet, or give me that same man completely naked with his schlong hanging out. Hell, id print both versions, that would be awesome
Succubi are inherently meant to be sexy, so it's totally different.
But on one Kickstarter, their monthly collection included women and men, but only the women minis had two versions: one clothed/armour on, one with their tits hangin' out there. Literally full frontal. They're rogues and mages, not fuckin succubi or pinups lmao
I designed a gladiator orc with open chest, abs and thighs. No one said a thing about it
Because gladiators typically wore very little armor, so you were on target there?
I guess the point of most people in this thread (mine included) is that the woman is *heavily* armored, it's just her butt hanging out. [It's pretty much the armored version of this](https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/06/27/06/35B4FA6300000578-3661645-image-m-131_1467006071933.jpg).
It's a beautiful sculpt but the assless armor kills it.
I'll be rocking this to my next sword fight ngl
Ah, where you went wrong was having a *mostly* naked model. Theres a big difference between mostly naked, and all naked. I guarantee that if you had sculpted him completely naked, and didn't shy away from sculpting his massive orc schlong, people would have something to say.
It's clearly well made, but when I look at the mini above I'm confused. I dont think I could use that mini in a game, because a player would never choose less armor to have their butt exposed, and neither would an npc. You either need the armor, so you wear as much as you can, or you have magical protection like a succubus and don't need any armor at all.
I'd buy the orc tho, he'd be great
> You either need the armor, so you wear as much as you can, or you have magical protection like a succubus and don't need any armor at all.
Except you can be in-between. Take your magical protection schtick. In a fantasy setting, you wear the armor because it looks cool or has other properties to make wearing it meaningful. Or, the character just likes to wear armor, jus not totally clad in it. I don't see the problem with both sides getting what they want. Its not JUST the females. I have been trying to find armored dudes in full plate armor WITHOUT cloaks or crotch/butt capes. Its a pain in the ass.
I just want me some schlongs, nips, and front butts. Whether they're male or female I'm not too bothered, hell I'd take a naked shemale too.
I'm just not a fan of minis with specifically revealing armor that doesn't actually reveal anything, like the model above.
I dont even want to jerk it to them or anything, I just want to have them, paint them, and sometimes use them in my games. I'm an adult, I don't think it's weird to expect *some* amount of adult miniatures
Especially schlongs. I love saying that word, and if I had some minis with their schlongs out I'd also have a better excuse to say it more often
Kingdom death has you covered for schlongs.
Imma look into it asap, thanks friend!
Edit: there's not a whole lot of schlongs, but I like this guy's models, they're pretty cool!
This set of minis is pretty sweet if you want a mostly nude buff guy to paint, good price too.
I printed this guy to be a Hercules style high level barbarian NPC with perfect physical stats.
The one where he is surrounded by servants has a gratuitous butt shot and the one where he’s laying on the lounge is the most overtly sexual.
Okay. Other people might like it. Maybe you shouldn't buy this one. You get upset every time a mini exists that isn't to your taste? C'mon. Let other people enjoy what they enjoy. This isn't hurting you.
Uh, I have no clue why you think I'm upset at every mini I see. I've been fairly relaxed here. I just dislike it when a range of minis has women that are quite clearly sculpted to be sexy and only sexy. It's a big problem with miniature sculptors, namely 3D-printable ones.
Because your opening statement was "Why the hell is her ass out like that?" Its pretty clearly a statement that comes from a place of being upset. In a setting where Barbarians get more AC for wearing less armour, you find a lot of dudes with butts and chests out too.
1. You misunderstood my initial post.
2. There's a major difference between half-naked men and half-naked women in fantasy media. It's been explored quite a bit and I encourage you to do some reading/watching on the topic – it's quite eye-opening!
Please feel free to explain in detail then.
I've read much of that material and am unmoved by it. Please feel free to read counter arguments about how men and women are interpreted in fantasy media directed at women.
Lyla the mini witch has a good video on this. Honestly I don’t mind the sexy models. Do they look unrealistic? Yeah. Would I use them in game? Definitely not. Sometimes I do paint them though because occasionally they look very nice.
But people get upset at the lack of fully armored women. And it’s a valid point when the standard is this. This isn’t a bad model by any means at all, but it can be a real drag when you’re seeking out minis to paint that are fully armored and a bit more realistic battle wise. The market is over saturated to appeal one way.
This model in particular is so damn good. Like it’s beautiful. I’ll be buying it probably myself, but I think why people get heated is it ticks off so many things and then the butt window just looks.... out of place. Kind of odd compared to the gorgeous sculpted armor.
Hey, thank you for the full and cogent response! I'm actually a big fan of Lyla and am subscribed to her channel, and would recommend others do the same. I do agree with a lot of what she said in that particular video, but my singular issue with it is thus . . .
I play D&D with majority female players. And we've never, ever had an issue finding models that are fully armoured, fully clothed, etc., when that's what they've sought out. Not of any heritage, class, etc. I've also had players who prefer models closer to this one for their PCs, and have sometimes used models like this for NPCs. To complain about this model existing, and to imply that its use is somehow immoral/sexist, or even that immoral or sexist themes/ideas have no place *with villains* in story-telling is ridiculous.
If this were the only female D&D model available then I'd 100% agree it shouldn't look like this. But there are thousands! This one isn't a problem.
Then, in a lot of cases, those 'women' end up looking indistinguishable from the men. Expescially if we are going from a protection first realism standpoint. Why wouldn't a woman wear the exact same shape of armor as a dude? I asked on another post where the females were supposed to be. Why? because I literally couldn't tell the two females apart from teh men in the picture of the minis. They looked identical except for having a slightly thinner frame. Tons of skinny dudes out there.
Its way to easy to go in the opposite direction and make them look like dudes in armor. I'd much rather have a silhouette that easily tells me its a male or female at first glance. I'll take that any day. I do have a few that are sexy AND armored. ARcadia from signum games. Totally armored up, head to toe. Still has armor that lets you know its a female. A 'breastplate' if you will and the heels.
I can enjoy both ends of the spectrum. I, personally, enjoy the bikini armor types a lot more, especially for painting.
I don't have the time, sorry? Although it's good that you admitted that you're not willing to listen to women and have your mind changed, so I guess we can end the conversation here 😘
I see you're not going to respond. How terrible that you should be unwilling to listen to someone and have your mind changed. I guess we'll end the conversation there. 😘
What are you talking about? I said I've already read on the subject. You're the one saying you don't have time, and aren't willing. I never said any such thing. You reveal yourself in your assumptions. Just because I don't take everything YOU say as gospel doesn't mean I'm not willing to listen to women. How ridiculous.
Edit to add: How dare you tell people to look up literature on a subject and then - when they respond that you should look up the counter-points - say you don't have time and act like its a ridiculous request, then call them sexist. You're toxic.
Bruh, I agree with you on the point of sexy minis being distasteful, but the "ok sweaty, educate yourself" attitude is unfruitful beyond belief. You say you don't have the time to drop an essay or two which influenced your thinking or highlights the problems of the sexualized nature of male-dominated fandoms, nor do you have the time to ask "oh, its interesting that you didn't find the criticism of sexualized media to be valid, how come?", BUT you DO have the time to be defensive about "im not on trial reeee, I don't have to answer you".
If you don't want to talk, adhere to proper internet etiquette and just don't reply.
It is hurting people though tbh. It encourages stereotypes that make people look at women as sex first agency later. No one saying sexy doesn't have its place, but when it's the norm it adds to a culture that reduces women to bodies that are nice to look at. It leads to attitudes & behaviour that harm women for real, like rape culture, harassment etc etc, I assume you've seen the news.
You're asking the person you got in to a row with to explain this to you, but it's not their job, it's your job to educate yourself & help society improve. If you're not willing to do that then you're part of the problem.
SO, tell me who is getting hurt by minis like this existing? You know something, people with your mindset are why, partially, I can't get a hold of ANY space crusaders stuff from PRODOS games. Granted, their business acumen was bad, but people bitched about them making cheesecake, look it up, secondary definition, miniatures. Like its fine for a female predator, but the moment you put a human in the same armor, its a problem. /sigh
I agree that it’s annoying when 99% of minis are hypersexualised. But it’s also a nice butt. So who can say if it’s good or not.
She's a badass warrior here to pull no punches and give no fucks. Focusing on her ass just breaks that veil and reduces her to something sexual, I feel
Idk she doesn’t have to be a badass. I mean she might be. If they’re even a she. They’re whatever they’re painted as
I just wish the bias towards sexualised female armour was more equal. Not enough sexy male armour out there and modest female armour
The difference between half-naked men and half-naked women is a big one. First off, these male characters are often designed with the male gaze in mind and aren't sexualised, per se. Women, still often created for the male gaze, are created half naked as a way to sexualise them.
This is a huuuuge topic with a lot of nuance, so instead of taking my Reddit comment as serious gospel, there are a lot of videos and writings in the subject that explain it far better than I ever could.
>I just wish the bias towards sexualised female armour was more equal. Not enough sexy male armour out there and modest female armour
If enough people wanted it, it would exist on a larger scale. Sex sells but only when its women, really. Makes sense since I'd wager the vast majority of people painting minis and playing miniature games, like warhammer, are male and straight.
So don't paint them? Whats the problem with people on both sides getting what they want? There is a stupendous amount of clothed minis out there compared to the unclothed ones. And even when i do find one that's like this, they still have butt and crotch capes or cloaks that cover the entire backside of the mini, not just the ass.
Cuz ass is great
Great design and aesthetic! But I wish the armor was covering her whole body. Imagine going to war but not protecting your thighs and rear. That femoral artery would be a prime target
This right here! Thank you.
Seriously, just turn the heels to boots and cover her with armor and it's an awesome sculpt. Guys clearly got talent.
Damn I didn’t notice the heels :,)
Yeah, I've got kind of a checklist.
You did make me think of filling in the heels woth green stuff!! Ty.
You sound like a lot of fun...
Cool looking armor with heels and nipple spikes, but lots of exposed area. And I'm pretty sure long hair would be a detriment in hand to hand combat.
The only thing stopping me from subbing is the odd base shapes, do you offer 1in circle or square base alternatives for each model?
Each release has a plain circle and or square base included in the pack. All models are available in freestanding form so you can use any base you like.
One last question and you gain me at your highest tier today. Do patrons have access to download files after the months release?

Some rewards are exclusive to Patreon so those may be restored in a direct download link if need be. Cheers!
I should have asked that question long ago.
She has that C A K E
I’ll probably paint her rear as having pants tho
Any plans on versions without the butt and crotch capes? perhaps also without helmets? These the closest things I have come across in my search for minis that tick off my list of aesthetics.
EDIT: looking a little close at these and they are 98% what I've been searching months for. I assume they're human, not orcs? I hate orcs
Hey 98% isn't too bad either. There will be a pose with the helmet open to see the face. Spoiler she is human. I"ll be making a bust of the open mask pose for painters as well.
Ah, shame about the bust only for the open helm. 98%. ALMOST there. I'll have to keep looking. thanks for the response. Best of luck to you.
I don't think they were saying that its bust only for the open helm. There is a separate pose with the open helm for the mini, I believe, and they'll also be making a bust of it.
Ah. I guess I misread.
Yeah, I agree with the above person-- I'd be willing to buy a version that had proper waist plates. That's literally the only deal-breaking part of this mini; she's otherwise perfect for a long-time OC of mine.
First of all, exceptional design and detail... just wow. But now I just need to say the following: Imagine being a warrior, training for years to become pretty good and then getting pretty good protection but not your crotch and butt, those just get some cloths draped over them. Is this also the male armor? If yes the image of a knight with boob plate and his schlong just hanging out of the loin cloths is funny as hell. Also, what did the blacksmith think when smithing that? Like, ok add some boob spikes so that noone touches them (there would be no other practical reason, well except maybe for extreme motorboating for torturing purposes, probably) we dont want her to get harassed...well i think we can leave the whole crotch area basicly open, noone will ever do something stupid there. Like seriously did he not have enough materials left to cover her lower body and thus decided to just tell her it was an artistic choice? The Idea of her just picking up this armor and absolutely turning imidiately into a Karen (well rightfully so in that case) is just way to funny to further think about it.
- Greetings from Germany (and seriously great design)

LOL rogues get 4x damage when backstabbing that guy.
Judging by these comments I'd say if this is your model you should maybe include pants/armour that cover the whole body in your future endeavours.
Or they could not cave in to demands to change their creation? My suggestion was for MORE cheesecake.
These are cool, but the pigeon toe on the spear knight looks a bit odd honestly.
The sword and shield one is doing a powerful step forward to battle, whilst the spear one really doesn't want to fight.
Lol, the 'Murican prudes are out in full force. Nice model OP.
Great looking designs! Keep doing you, the hobby would be a boring place if everything were a heavily armoured medieval knight just because realism demands it. If we wanted realism we wouldn't be playing with fantasy toys after all...
Thanks, I designed the armor to be alluring, like how gladiator armor shows abs and thighs but with a fantasy spin.
How we doing! I'm sharing just a couple poses from our soon to be released Puppet Slayer collection. We're offering a 5 figure collection plus a bust this month and extras. Grab a spot and download these as soon as they are available, Targeting June 15.

Dayummmm girl that's a thicc ass girllll
that's not where the hyphen goes silly bot
Oh, but it is
This stupid ass-joke
For the butt people, just paint the "non armored" parts leather.
In fact maybe it's already there o.O.....
This design looks a bit silly :p
Does the fact that the figure is only an inch and a half tall ALSO break the believability for you guys as well? Jesus, it's a fantasy setting with magic and monsters and fantastical bullshit. Not a goddamn historical documentary or recreation.
*Battle ready yams
I have a dream that one day creators will create female characters that are sold by the strength of their character design and interest, and not by the power of boners
Fr though this stuff is getting so old
Not enough of it around, if you ask me. I'm having a hard time finding more like this.
She Thicc dayum.
It don't really work for me:
1. Not because its a bad sculpt
2. Not because it shows some skin (others show much more and I appreciate the female form)
Because it's kind've just an over-done concept. Sort of like the whole substitute-a-squid for a head and call it Cthulhu thing everybody and their momma's bought into these days.
Okay, now that you have the compulsory crazy sexy deadly demon babe box checked how about you push yourself a little harder?
What if she was an insect-babe instead of a demon-babe? What if part of her was disgustingly ugly? What if, instead of an a
Here I am sick to death of orc and goblin kickstarters and patreons.
Do these print as single pieces?
The minis come delivered in a few different configurations. Attached to the base, freestanding from the base, and the detached base is included as well. The figure that is attached to the base is pre supported.
It reminds me of daedric armour from elder scrolls
I love this, only thing i would change is make my own custom terrain base. But that's just me because i like telling stories with my environment
Wow comments.. My only question is, what does it look like printed? A render is nice and all, but unless I see an actual print the render won't get me to pay for anything.
