Saleh & Son, purveyors of fine miniatures!
« on: October 14, 2017, 01:26:31 PM »
Imagine my joy this morning when I opened a small parcel from Saleh & Son, aka Lucid Eye Publications).

As many of you may know Steve was one of the two brilliant sculptors of North Star's original IHMN figure range. His figure's clean lines and immense character were part of our success and we have oftimes saluted him for this.

So, when I saw the photographs of 'The Plot Device' range, I had to have some myself, as they are pretty perfect for the savage streets of VSF London.

Well, he has not disappointed at all. Each figure is crisp and as lovely as the promo photos. The fine detail on these white metal figures would not disgrace the best resin can offer. I expect that they shall be a joy to paint, even with my fading skills.

I shall be using them to create a villainous company for IHMN, led by the mysterious and finely dressed gentleman ape.
You can find out more about this range and his other sculpts at https://www.lucideyepublications.com or here:

Time for some name-dropping...

I met Steve and his son Joe last weekend. We went to England's oldest pub in Nottingham - the Trip to Jerusalem.

If you like what you are seeing there, you should see what is coming next - all sorts of fantastic sculpty loveliness  :D

GREAT minis with tons of character indeed! :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Shame on you, Lucid Eye, because these days there's no excuses for not having pictures of all minis gorgeously painted in the website!  :-[

There is an excuse and that is cost. When you are running a small business, and the rates charged by professional painters are high (as they have to make a living too), other things may come first.

I second how nice the figures are!
Website has also been live for about 10 seconds (or thereabouts :-) ) so I can easily excuse it not having painted figures. Even if they are added I'd still want to see then 'in the raw'.

IMHO, it's called a PROFESSIONAL INVESTMENT!  ;)
