Very nice Bob.
I particularly like the 'Anthropologist ' . I'll also give a nod to the  'Astronomers' glasses. A very subtle detail that takes years of clay pushing to know when you can play with an under cut,(and get away with it.)
 Your 'Academica' is full of character. Im just wonderinghow I'd use it as I've already a 'Mr Porter' school master floating around with an almost identical pose ,only mirroring yours.
You'll have to forgive my ignorance or rather the lack of lateral thinking ( burning the midnight oil at the moment. ) But I can't quite place your inspiration for the forth figure.
Waffling aside . There's not much I buy these days as just as easy to make what I need.But these will be on that meagre list.

I also noticed the glasses and yes, they're a very subtle but well-placed touch, in a figure location where they won't go unnoticed once painted. Lovely idea, very well-executed.

Professor Elinore Pyncheons: I wanted a female academic, (my wife is a professor) so I thought about it and decided I would loosely base her on a younger Margaret Atwood. Then I gave her a cat.

Atwood the Canadian Environmentalist?
I vaguely remember a Canadian mentioning her once when I was merrily been eaten alive by mosquitoes also something about not anyone a moose. I'm not sure if I've got the right one. As I wasn't paying attention.  I was more interested in the notion of drying my socks at the same time as making a brew,and the serious thought of whether my tea would taste of feet.
I'll definitely get this particular set .As it has more than just your finger prints in it. ( Its no secret I do like making a mini with a subtle human connection .It'll be nice to have a similar piece from a sculptor who's work I enjoy. )

Tin Shed, sounds like good times in the Canadian bush.  ;) I used to work in  the woods - it was a great incentive to get some higher educationÖ Mosquitoes arenít even the worst biting insects out there.

These new figures look great! Iím looking forward to figuring out how to incorporate them into my collection.

Brilliant work, Bob.  Your sculpts just keep getting better and better, if thatís possible. This pack will be extremely popular.

Canadian writer, first and foremost. ;)

But also an environmentalist, yes.

Nice miniatures!
Bob, I had a mate stay with me in Australia years ago,his parents were academics from Victoria and knew all sorts of interesting people,Margaret Atwood being one (he was a writer too,though at the time it was advertising copy). I got him into Lovecraft :)
