SW1 Bug Warriors Scale Comparison Shots

Ok, as promised, here are some scale comparison shots for SW1 Bug Warriors.

Here we can see a trio of Bug Warriors facing off against some hardened adventurers. 

A bug-monk battles against a female half-giant. This converted Mage Knight figure is 39mm tall.

Here we can see the same mini next to a converted GW Chaos Marauder.

And another Bug Warrior standing next to a converted Old Glory Ghost Miniatures orc.
Another Bug Warrior build next to our friendly half-giant!
I'll be showing off some of the other painted pics on the Four-Color Figures blog this weekend as well, so check it out if you have a moment.

I hope to have news on prices and packing this coming week.

SW1 Bug Warriors Full Preview

Well, after languishing in U.S. Customs limbo for a week or so, we got the greens in and turned them over! So far we have masters, and production will soon follow! This code is now called SW1 Bug Warriors, as I feel its a more appropriate title for the figures. The "SW" stands for Savage Wastes, and we'll be releasing more fantasy figures in this line--all denizens of a blasted, post-apocalyptic fantasy world called the Cynder.

Anyway, here are some unpainted shots of the 28mm Bug Warriors!

Here at left you can see the two bug warriors and their component parts. The pack will contain 14 total pieces.

Here's a closer look at the first of the 2 Bug Warriors. He's got arm options for a spear, throwing chakram, crystal sword, club, and closed fist.

Bug Warrior 2 includes a battle harness, bow arm, spear, bone sword, and open hand. He also gets a quiver full of arrows. 
Here they are assembled and ready for basing.

We'll offer more shots of the figures coming up this weekend, including some painted views and a scale comparison with a popular fantasy line.

Thanks for looking!

Preview: Mantis-Men!

I've always loved bug-guys, and our first offering will be 28mm Mantis-Men suitable for use with any fantasy or sci-fi RPG or skirmish game. Bob Naismith has created 2 distinct bodies, 2 heads, 9 arms, and a quiver for the bow arm (not pictured in these preview shots). The second body will include a battle harness where modelers can attach the quiver and any other accessories they may want to add themselves.

Take a look at the first preview shots, then see below for more details.

All arms will be cast with a nice tab so that they can be easily plugged into the body.

Here you can see the individual parts of the first Mantis-Man warrior. One of those spear arms was turned into a throwing disc in the final product.

Also not pictured is the new bow arm and quiver.

Now I am keen selling a two-pack including all of the components (2 distinct bodies, 2 distinct heads, 9 arms, and the quiver). We'll likely cast it up with all the right arms on one tab and all the left on the other, except for the bow and quiver, which will go on their own small tab. The two heads would also get a tab of their own.

Since we're in the early stages of planning, I'd like to ask folks how they might want to buy singles. Would prefer a body, 1 head, and all 9 arms for your single pack, or some other combination? I will have better information on prices once I get the masters made up and figure out what we can sneak into a production mold, space-wise.

In the meantime, write me at and let me know what you think. Thanks!
