Heroes & Villains Miniatures News

Discussion in 'Figure News' started by H&V Miniatures, Mar 13, 2013.

    Hi all!
    As we told you in our blog last week, we are pleased to announce that Heroes and Villains Miniatures has reached to collaboration agreements with two incredibly talented independent sculptors.
    Under these agreements, each one of them will have his own line of figure integrated into our company, and we will release miniatures of diverse scale and theme in which the own author will be the main thread.
    Once said that, let us give you some details about each initiative and present the two first releases that are already available in our website.

    First of all, we'll talk about Fahrenheit Miniature Project. Eduard Pérez is in charge of this line. We believe that this sculptor needs no presentation at all, as he has done impressive works for companies like Élite Miniaturas, La Meridiana, or Alexandros Models. As first release of this line we have a german fallschirmjäger from Crete, in 75 mm, that our good friend Jaume Ortiz is finishing to paint right now. It is a LIMITED and NUMBERED edition of 300 copies:

    Last but not least, we have Peter Punk Produktions, the venture of Jonatán Monerris. We talk about one of the most talented sculptors of the Spanish scene. He has collaborated with companies such as Latorre Models, Enigma Miniatures o Nocturna Models. His first release is a bust with a accentuated Celtic inspiration in 1/12 scale, painted by Fernando Ruiz. Also, it is a LIMITED and NUMBERED edition of 300 copies:

    The Chieftain

    I am trying to buy the fallschirmjager at the website, but the shipping method do not appear, so, i cant process the order.

    That is strange, since i bought the previous busts.

    Any help? :)

    The fallschirmjager look strange! Porportion, baby face ??? I really do not know what, but for me it's a good figure but not a great like Diegoff made in 75mm

    Edit: It is polite not to spoil a post other news images within a news post. —gordy

    Taking another look, is anyone else also thinking that the suspenders of the fallschirmjager are a little oversized?

    Hi Guys ,

    Hush now. Constructive feedback (or any but positive feedback and adoration) is frowned upon on PF.

    Read the unwritten rules, please.

    You could start however by making something better yourself. Then its OK...may be

    Two great sculpts to my mind
    I thinke are numerous replacement heads availiable if needed.
    I think the para has a good face with a lot of character!
    Well done!:)

    Although not in my sphere of interest two very nice releases.

    I truly like the para's face as it is. Not the classic mug shot of the so-called perfect Aryan male we often see (expect?) with these kind of subjects. Finaly, I would dare to say...

    Congrats!

    I like the sculpting on the Fallschirmjäger overall, although I think the hands are a little massy for the overall build. Combined with the large head this gives an odd look to the proportions for an adult - in the left 3/4 view where the face is in profile it looks a bit like a child dressed in a costume.

    Can't say for sure about the bust, I'd like to see pics of it just primed or the bare resin; the paintjob makes it hard to get a proper read on the sculpting.
