Normally, Citadel seems to have entrusted one sculptor with getting a range started; with setting the tone and creating the atmosphere that would define it forever after: Bob Naismith gave space knights bascinet beaks. Mark Copplestone taught us the army of the future needed spats. Bob Olley gave dwarves giant noses and cigars and pirates a perennial hunch. Jes Goodwin gave elves shiny space chainmail and a dancer's poise. But when it came time for extra arms . . . we got the Olley hunchbacks and big noses, oh yes we did, but also Goodwin's dancers. I'm not sure I can think of another iconic sci-fi trope where two such different artists had such a dramatic impact so early. But you really can't have genestealers without both. And so far, my collection was a little wanting for the dancier hybrids. I have fixed that.
Thank you for joining me. May your gaming bring you joy and may you find your treasures without turning too much gold into lead. ;-)
