I especially love Alicia.  Felicity is badass.  And the clawed powered armo(u)r is also. Sweet!   :notworthy:

Also, "Trebek."

I like Alicia. Nice simple basic equipment. Not too many details. Almost similar to the Spyglass style (not sculpting style but plain and simple style). Kev should do more basic adventurer type models like this. Not every hero is fully kitted out with the latest gear

Alicia is wonderful, cant wait to see some painted ones. As Balgin said, the simplicity is lovely, and her face is beautiful  :thumbup:

I'll have to paint her up to look like my Alicia.  They've both got the same attitude, build and hair.

Alicia and the thusfar unnamed ogre are making it difficult for me to keep to my plan this year to not order any more models until I've painted what I got with the last one.

Both very nice, Alicia especially.

Further perusal of Alicia has brought up some questions.

1: Is that a rough patch behind the scabbard that'll need smoothing on the back of her left shin up near the knee?

2: Are the sleeevs an undergarment protruding from beneath an overdress? Looking at the backs of the armpits they certainly look like they're some shirt or underdress. If so then that radicaly changes the colour scheme I had in mind for her. Obviously they look like they've been done to be painted as either but I'd like to follow the sculptor's intent and be correct.

3: Are those trousers or a long skirt underneath the overdress? The lack of shadow on the front of the left shin indicates it's a skirt that meets the overmantle rather than a pair of trousers wich would curve to follow the leg.

4:If the sleeves are separate then are they the same garment as the underdress evident on the legs or a separate shirt altogether?

Also judging from the pictures I got the feeling that she's going to be 3-4mm taller than she looks. She looks like a charming 5'2" to 5'4" but I suspect she'll be closer to 5'11". The ruler at the side says she's 33mm from top to toe so I suspect I am correct but she won't be as large as I feared.

Of course it did :P

No. It's the metal leg of the casting of Taxxis B that I used as an armature.

Yes. She's wearing and lighter underdress.

3: Are those trousers or a long skirt underneath the overdress? The lack of shadow on the front of the left shin indicates it's a skirt that meets the overmantle rather than a pair of trousers wich would curve to follow the leg.

The material you can see is part of the underdress, the same garment as the arms.

The former, see above.

She's a sniff under 30mm tall.

I am not a fan of the Ogre (he seems quite amateur to me...sorry :( ) but the rest are good.  Alicia looks like a put-upon mum about to defend her family and she also has a 'don't mess with me' look on her face.

Kieran (for me) is the best of the bunch because he is likely to be the only one I get (being the only sci-fi one here).
