Revised Female Stormtroopers!

Don’t worry, I was just having a little fun with you and the industry…
On a more serious note; I posted a survey to the KS backers asking if they wanted me to shrink the size of the females at the expense of compatibility between current and future releases such as the Stormtrooper Accessory Set, the Support Weapons set and pretty much anything that is made for the male troopers, it looks like 72%, the overwhelming majority prefer the full size to keep compatibility between current and future releases.

Part of me was really wishing it would not matter and we could tweak on the scale and shoulder width but at $15k per mold I simply cannot promise that the girls would get the support they deserve in the future releases, so it is probably for the best.

It seems the main complaint is the shoulder width, I agree. Unfortunately, the shoulder width is a fixed point that cannot be modified without effecting the kits cross compatibility. With that in mind I want back in and tweaked what I could. I brought the head size down to more closely match the males, pulled the waist in slightly and made the shoulder pads smaller.

Here is a new render of the tweaked female and the original male model, when viewing these it is best to keep in mind that the way the eye perceives a real world object and a flat image is very different. What looks too fat or squat on the screen is likely to look about right when the model is in your hand or on the table. I have made numerous prints and this is always the case. When I approach a model I keep this fact in mind and adjust accordingly.


All the best!



  1. Personally I enjoy a full figured woman. Even if done a shelf piece I wouldn't mind buy 1. But I like your joke too.

  2. Will we be able to get the a-typical large breasted torso as an option in the accessory set?

    You just can't have a set of females without the mandatory big boobs- Sorry but even as a 47yr old I cannot comply with the modern- politically correct view of the world.

    Raging heroes had got it right- sex sells.

    We demand our choice of voluptuous females- Don't let us down.

  3. Sorry Wolfgang... They will not be available that way but you are welcome to convert them ;) Too many issues arise by changing the chest, the arms would no longer fit when holding a rifle and it is not the way I want to go with these.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Adams work and Raging Heroes has some great minis, but variety is the spice of life and there are already enough cheesecake, pigeon toed female troopers available through other manufacturers.

  4. Thank you for making a reasonable female model.
