    As you can see we have a demonic looking female....... but what is the succubus?

    Succubus (Sucubi) are powerful female Demons who use their sexuality to appear through the dreams of victims, then seduce and prey on young men, whose souls they slowly drain with each encounter.

    Succubi in traditional fantasy form may comprise of various sexually appealing forms. From long haired, to lithe and winged.

    Succubi appear in whatever form is most pleasing to its intended victim. Though they commonly appearing as scantily clad, shapely, winged demons.

    The origins of Succubi lay steeped in occult mysteries and various sleep disturbances.

    Victims of 'Succubi' described their visits to the men as 'a feeling of someone sitting on my chest or pelvic area.' and when they awoke, they would feel drained.

    Powers and Abilities

    Super Speed - They can move faster than the eye can see, able to appear and disappear in an instant.

    Super Strength - A succubus has greater strength than a human and is able to lift a grown man with one hand.

    Kiss of Death - A succubus has the ability to steal life force energy from victims via a kiss. This action usually results in the death of normal humans if the succubus is a novice, but overtime, it can be controlled.

    Healing Factor - They fully heal from most wounds, including stabs and gunshots.
    Lust Empowerment - By having sexual soiree's , a succubus is able to grow stronger and heal faster due to stealing life force energy.

    Dream Walking - Throughout lore, succubi have been able to appear in the dreams of men in order to seduce them.

    Supernatural Beauty - The succubus will be beyond the beauty of a normal human woman and is completely irresistible to men.

    Immortality - As demons, Succubi are immortal.

    Their male counterpart is called an Incubus.

    Prep

    Main Torso ...Casting block and support posts to remove , on the review piece there was a small piece of mould in one of the horn location cutouts

    Wings ...Small excess resin to cut away from the edges

    Horns... Remove small casting pieces from ends and fit in place

    Arm Casting line and piece of resin to take away from rear of arm ...then fit

    Tail...Small casting remnant from along tail and at point

    General comments

    Nuts Planet casting quality is right up there , the resin showed no blemishes , and this is something we can expect from all releases both past , present and future

    The pose is quite seductive with the wings wrapped round the front , perhaps not to everyone's taste , with the piece having a little like a anime character and look about it .

    On the review box it states 1/10th but this is certainly 1/12th in scale

    Main Torso

    The largest of the pieces with the subject looking over to her right hair sept back on the left revealing a pointed ear .

    Seccubus 0.jpg

    Wearing the minimal of clothing her lovely female form is enclosed with supports wrapping around her body and back almost flame like in design and style.

    Seccubus 006.jpg

    Detail work is very sharply done on her hair this as said is swept back on her left with the hair then flowing like a torrent down her back and over the shoulders on both sides

    . Seccubus 013.jpg

    On each side of the head there is a cutout ...ready to take the horns

    At the back we have 3 cutouts to fit the wings and the tail.

    Seccubus 009.jpg

    The body shape is very sensually done , well toned with here female form not being over emphasised

    Seccubus 005.jpg Seccubus 008.jpg Seccubus 010.jpg Seccubus 011.jpg Seccubus 012.jpg

    Facial features are delicate and again these send out a very sensula feeling whaile I am looking at her , mouth slightly open , pouting , a cute nose , eyes are well defined .

    The lower edge is angled to a "V" .

    Arm

    This is a easy fit to the cutout on the arm on torso , again its a delicate sculpt , the hand is nicely done , the fingers are open with the palm facing to the body when in place . but the fingers do look a little long ...but hey ...has anyone ever seen a succubus ...I think not !!!.

    On the upper arm we seen a torc , with a small amount of decoration on it , when in position you can see no join.

    Seccubus 017.jpg Seccubus 018.jpg Seccubus 019.jpg

    Tail

    This is a long and flowing piece almost serpent like twisting , and bending at the rear of the torso , the tails end is shaped spear like .

    Fit is by a locating lug into a matching cutout , I would pin this rather than just glue .

    When in place it is quite open and perhaps there could have been more interaction with the torso .

    Seccubus 023.jpg Seccubus 022.jpg

    Horns

    One for each side of the head , fit is the same as the tail with the horns slightly textured , and spiral in style , when in place they add a interesting look to the piece albeit it being demonic

    Seccubus 020.jpg Seccubus 021.jpg

    Wings

    These are a delicate sculpt with them being rather small and petite but at the same time the detail work is all there the wing bones are clearly seen with the wings membranes joining each , the membranes themselves are textured.

    In position they are drawn in towards the lower body in an almost protective look

    Seccubus 014.jpg

    Seccubus 015.jpg Seccubus 016.jpg

    Final Thoughts

    As we expected the quality is very good indeed , its another fantasy subject something that Nuts Planet seen very keen on continuing but I for one would like to see something military in the bust releases again.

    The prep is minimal and it is a striking model allowing the painter to go mad with textures , with the challenge of the wings and of course we have the female flesh to consider as well.

    If Fantasy is your thing then this is for you . Nuts Planet has a very large following and this will please them I am sure

    One of the less successful NP fantasy pieces..lacks coherence and character. There isn’t the power associated with the mythical personality ...in spite of best attempts by box art painter it’s still looking like a juvenile playing dress up.

    In fantasy right now the female personalities are coming forward but not always with confidence...this misses..the review supports NP quality, although sometimes resin a bit brittle..and they have global distribution which is good.

    I looked at this when it came out..and can actually buy it in Canada..but passed..there are better

    It looks well cast,and the front pose has an alluring look,but the tail is a real turn off for me!
