Hi there to all.
This poll is for research purposes, it is very serious in nature and I would appreciate it if you give your imput on figures that you would actually want to buy.
Since I have lost my regular day job due to a corporate downsizing I am now doing the business full time and I am looking to expand the figure range by creating and offering different civilians in resin.
I am looking at doing civilians in 1/35, 54mm, and 1/48 scales. Most of these releases will be simple individual figures or small sets. Most of the figures will be one piece castings all the way to 3 piece castings (arms separate). I want to be able to sell these resin figures at around $10.00USD per figure if not lower. I want to make them very affordable and cost effective to produce and market. I am not looking to get rich at this just want to be able to pay the bills.
I will compile a list of the most popular themes and give my sculptor the go ahead to start the mastering process.
Any research help, photos, etc that you can also provide would be most welcomed. You can send any photos, or research help such as drawings, paintings, etc to email@example.com
I sincerely thank you all for your honest and informative participation with this poll. In the end it will benefit us all. You will get some nice resin civilians at a cheap and affordable price and I get to produce more of them as well.
Sorry to hear about your job loss. Hope things work out. As far as civilians go I would like to see more refugee types especially winter late WW II Eastern front. You know people you could mix in with retreating German Units fleeing the Russians. The same goes for Western Europe 1940. Also civilians scrounging stuff off of old battlefields. I know the Arabs were infamous for doing it in North Africa,but they weren't the only ones. A lot of good stuff left behind after the fights over. We're getting some new sets now from Miniart and Masterbox,but they're mostly just people standing around,I would like to see more active figures. Just my two cents worth,hope it helps.
