Soda Pop Miniatures have posted the concept art for their latest Relic Knights figure – One Shot.

One Shot concept art

From their announcement:

Formerly a gunnery sergeant on one of the Alliance’s massive Goliath Siege Walkers, Jessi Bancroft, was well respected among her crew for her unerring accuracy with the enormous mech’s weapon systems. Upon binding with her cypher, Fritz, and the discovery of her knight she was granted dispensation as a special operations agent. Adopting the moniker, One Shot, she acted as a unique target “sniper” for the UPA military. It was not long before she was approached by the security firm, Black Diamond. Their promise of wealth proved too irresistible to deny and at the conclusion of her term of service she immediately moved to their employ. The decision has proven lucrative for both her and Black Diamond; the Guild being more than willing to pay large sums to have their precious ships’ cargoes protected by a Relic Knight.

One Shot and her cypher, Fritz, will be available to order in just a couple of weeks.

    What a great looking concept. I hope the mini resembles the art exactly. Although, and I’m a little disturbed to even think this…that little guy on the mech is the most adorable Nazi I’ve ever seen.

    With that spike, I’d say it’s a WWI German helmet, so he’s not a Nazi, just German. I absolutely love the model, but the little hand on the relic knight reminds me of Hanson from Scary Movie.

      Doh. You’re right. I stand corrected.

    It’s a Prussian pickelhaube or Prussian pickle helmet to be precise.
    Originally designed back in 1842.

    Cool, another hot chick with mecha from our favourite hentai models firm SodaPants Miniatures. Seriously, they should reconsider changing to such a name. I love their minis but 12 girls out of the current 15 miniatures range (16 characters) is starting to become ridiculous. Heck, granted Infinity and Anima have abundance of female models but they keep a logical proportion. In Anima, which also has many seminaked chicks like Soda, there’s barely a proportion 50% male 50% female characters, in Infinity female proportion is even slightly lower. But in Soda’s currently Relic Knights range it reachs 75-80%. Hey Soda guys, we customers are willing to buy you male characters too if you do them. Focusing mainly on chicks will grant you another reputation.

    • If you don’t like it, you’re welcome to not buy it.

      Hentai is used to refer to sexually explicit material and not T&A.

      No one is forcing you to buy anything from Soda Pop. And this mini and the others are certainly NOT examples of hentai.

      The guys at Soda Pop have a unique point of view and artistic vision for their line. The figs are fun to paint, and you can honestly say there’s nothing else out there like them. Besides, with all of the other companies making mainly male figures, it’s kind of refreshing to see a line that has mostly female characters.

      I’m really looking forward to the release of the relic knights rules.

      Calling this hentai just because they focus mainly on chicks will grant YOU another reputation sir 🙂

      The Janzerker doth protest too much, methinks.

      There might also be a fluff reason for why most of the models are female. Maybe women make better mech pilots in this universe, or the men are all off doing other things. Your argument is a bit like looking at the 40k Sisters of Battle range and complaining that there aren’t enough men.

      Maybe you should hop over to Soda Pop’s Facebook page and ask them directly (in a nicer way, perhaps). You might even get an answer as to why, one that might be worth bringing back here and sharing with all of us. Just a though, y’know.
