Chapterhouse Studios have released their Doomseer Iyanar miniature.

Doomseer Iyanar

From their announcement:

Doomseer Iyanar-Duanna is cursed with the ability to forsee the slow death of her race. She shares the ability of all seers to see the paths of her race, but is only able to see the deaths of her people and nothing else. She was psychically scarred when she witnessed the death of the people of Malantai, she is now doomed to spend every moment of her life tracking down the creature responsible.

The “Doomseer” is only available from Chapterhouse Studios. The unpainted 28mm scale pewter model consist of 5 pieces – body and 4 variant arms. A 25mm slotted base is included.

    Just a note folks, I don’t want to have every second comment on this miniature be a comment about IP and copyright.

    If you want to comment about the figure then please do so but lets leave IP issues to the lawyers or to posts specifically about it.

    • Basileus

      Right, okay then. But can I just say that this miniature is a blatant rip-off of an existing design and nothing original at all, please? It’s sad IMHO.

        Yes. That is perfectly acceptable. 🙂

    Sure thing, Zac. Great looking, Eldar inspired miniature. Great paint job. Would make a great addition to an Eldar army.

    If it wasn’t because they claim it, I wouldn’t know this is supposed to be a female model. The armor chest is not different than that of any male model and waists are tight. Other than the lack of any female forms there’s also a clear disproportion between the upper part of the body (torso and arms)and the lower part (waist and legs). The arms are larger and thicker that the legs, the torso too. Actually the legs need to redone. If proportions were right then it would be a nice miniature (nothing astoundishing but a miniature worth the buy for any eldar player).

  • First note: nicely painted. That’s usually what I notice first. The painting gives a good first impression of the miniature.

    On closer inspection, the arms seem much too long and the legs too short. Looks like if the arms were at rest the fingers would touch the knees. If they wouldn’t, it does look like they would, so something is odd there. Also while it doesn’t seem so from the front, from the side it looks very 2-D: looks like the shoulders should have been thickened, maybe allow for some thicker armor under the cloak: just looks very thin & flat in the 4th picture on the site.

    Both weapon options look great: nicely sculpted & the detail on the cuirass is very nice. I think they indication of female form is spot on: nice to see not every female mini being a busty pin-up.

    It seems to me posts should be organic. If someone wants to talk IP, so be it. Not sure there is much harm in the free flow of ideas and what have you if they are not offensive. Just saying . . .

    • Zac

      The problem is that people often have no real idea of what trademark and copyright protections actually cover and the discussions quite often veer off into the bitter and acrimonious.

  • Haibane

    Aren’t you a little short to be an Eldar? O__o

  • Haibane

    (looking closer, and reading Janzerker’s comments, I quite agree – it’s not just that the model looks too short, but the proportions are all wrong – the torso is as long as the legs, and the arms are way too long. Bit of a shame as the actual sculpting looks pretty good)

  • cybogoblin

    And now I can’t see anything else!

    That’s a good looking upper body/head, such a shame about the legs.

  • angora

    I think it’s an awful model. Static posing and poor proportions. As with much of Chapterhouse’s stuff it appears to be an average conversion rather than a good alternative model. If it were an original piece I’d be happy to compliment them on having a go but as it is such derivative tat…
    Very nicely painted mind you (Angel is great) – but, as they say, “You can’t make a Silk purse out of a sow’s ear”
