Isabella



































New release time!

I have just updated the main website, and added Isabella to the Studio Store. We previewed her to mailing list subscribers yesterday, and we pretty thrilled with how she's been received. Ali drew the concept for this one (we'll be showing it here in the next couple of days), and it was brought to life by Jacques-Alexandre Gillois, it's his 4th sculpt for us and there are more to come later in the year.

We're absolutely delighted with this miniature - it's amazingly true to the original idea and concept. We wanted something between Mrs Coulter (from the His Dark Materials books), and Blade Runner - and that's pretty much exactly what we got. The character in the sculpt is just amazing - I especially love the interplay between Isabella and her little companion. The monkey is just tiny - JAG sculpts figures with very realistic proportions, so even though she is 34mm tall, her head is smaller than most 28mm miniatures. So the monkey's head is just impossibly small...

Great paint job by Ali too. She always beats me to the punch with painting these miniatures, and it's a hard act to follow! I've nearly finished my version of Kara, and Seraphine in underway (I'm doing quite a different take on that particular miniature!). I'll post them here once they're done.

Hope you like Isabella.

cheers

I really need to get my painting table out again. It's these type of miniatures and paint jobs that really inspire me.

Interesting. Mrs. Coulter was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw her. Although she seems more sci-fi than steampunk. I guess that's the Blade Runner influence. Do you have plans to do more steampunk minis?

That jacket is just outrageous!

Both sculpting and painting are just amazing. The problem with your minis is that I don't dre putting paint on it...

I'm truly impressed by Isabella. I have every intention to use her as my Madelyn Corbeau.

May I ask if her scale will fit Privateer Press' Warmachine line?
