Scibor Miniatures posts up their new warrior Dwarf green here on their facebook.
From their preview:
New Dwarf green
While I really like the look of this dwarf, there are some flaws (IMO) that I just can’t overlook :
1 – The cloak is almost too static in a horizontal position. You’d see more billow and with that, more lifting of the fur at the shoulders. Also, his beard should be moved by the wind, as well. Too many good miniatures fall short once a generic wind-whipped cloak is added that doesn’t relate to motion sculpted (or not sculpted) on the main body of the miniature.
2 – I can’t see him wielding a two-handed great hammer while carrying an over-sized shield at the same time.
Those points, personal perceptions, being said, I think this is an almost perfect sculpt of what I envision a Dwarf Hero to look like.
The biggest issue I have with Scibor minis (which I thought they’d started to overcome) is that on just about every model, the legs and tabard/robe/whatever are all a single piece. I assume it’s to prevent casting issues, but it’s something that has always bugged me about the minis.
Of course, I can understand it on this model, his feet are sprouting directly from his groin 🙂
Hm, I should clarify. By “single piece” I don’t mean multiple bits, just that there’s no gap between them, it’s solid. Yeah.
