Okay, this is pretty sweet even if your not a gamer or a mini painter. This is a local company that approached me and a bunch of other authors at LTUE about getting our heads 3D scanned so we could have minatures that look exactly like us. They are doing a Kickstarter to launch their company, and the whole idea is that they can scan anybody’s head, and then produce a mini of you on an existing body, or you can get just the head to put on some other body.
I got my sample yesterday, and it really does look like me (from our party of novelists and cartoonists, I’m the cleric. I’m thinking for Accountor, God of Fiscal Responsibility). The mini looks good. I won’t be able to paint it for at least the next 10 days, but I will post pics as I do. The sample I got was 28mm so that puts it a little on the small side, about the same size as a historical mini, like a Perry Brothers or so. But they are doing the actuals in 32 or 35mm “heroic” scale, so more in line with Warmachine or Reaper sizes. I’m getting another one in larger scale and then I’m also going to get a whole bunch of extra Larry heads, because I need Larry the pirate, and Larry the space marine, and Larry the conquistador, you get the idea.
