On the Lamb Games posted up a green WIP of a new Zabar miniature for Brushfire.

From the preview:

Zabar needed some more love.. big love.

  • Not sure what to make of this… There is too much realism in all the wrong places if this is serious… 🙂 He can’t even tie that leather cloth with his hands, less make anything with them. What size is it?

    • He is big, 120mm base.

      There is too much realism in all the wrong places

      Exactly right.

    At first I thought this was a very early WIP, with just some putty on a wire armature to start placing the volumes… Then I realized there are already textures on this thing?! Is this a late April’s fools joke?

    I am assuming Zabar is a play on “Babar” the elephant and that being the case this is brilliant!! Just google Babar and you will get it if your not familiar with the character.

    • Nicolay

      Its still a horrid model.

        Not if your trying to capture the asthetic of Babar, if thats the case this was executed perfectly. Babar is not for everyone either, to each there own.

        • I actually wrote a reply and though fekk it… but now I have to write it. Basically what you are saying “I am assuming Zabar is a play on “Babar” the elephant and that being the case this is brilliant!!” is implying it’s crap on it’s own merit if Babar was not a thing. Obviously it’s Babar. Otherwise there would be no point in him looking like this. I would have appreciated this if it were a cool pvc toy with NO ADDED REALISM like skin texture and all that. The target audience doesn’t really watch Babar so I really don’t get this in this context. The way it’s made makes no sense as a war miniature and takes away all the charm from Babar if intended like a collectible. I understand that some people will appreciate this, but I am still not understanding who.

          This made me look up Brushfire and it makes a bit more sense, with the characters all being animal humanoids… sometimes riding animals etc.

          I am not picking on the work that went into this; don’t get me wrong – I just don’t understand or particularly enjoy the esthetic – despite liking Babar.
