Not enough black people.
« on: January 30, 2012, 01:03:03 PM »
I've been noticing lately that fantasy miniature lines tend to be rather... eurocentric. Seems to me someone should take a look at that, and since Hasslefree's already done a couple of lovely nubian females I thought maybe Kev's the one to do it. A couple of lads to go with the lassies, like. What do you lot think - any interest?

Being fond of the more exotic females I couldn't agree more... Not so much bothered by the lack of african men though!  :smile:

Destiny is awesome I'd love a dude to go with the 60/70's vibe. Perhaps in a long coat with a thomspon.

Destiny is gonna be painted up to go with my Soul Section

That would be a good addition. I used to watch all the Shaft reruns.

Just spotted this. Absolutely. Would be great to see more varied types of ethnicity as well - Ethiopians, Bantus, Afro-Caribbeans, Polynesians, Maoris, etc etc.

A Maori colonial marine would be cool! Or a badass black sergeant with a cigar...

Like I've been saying, a 1970s Nosferatu Pimp!  Err ... well ... perhaps he's the alternative head ...?  :erm:
