I just don't think these minis are in good taste and 2. They are the objectification of women (ever seen a naked male figure from GW?)
    RE: point 2, yes. Any garden variety barbarian figure you'll find as a standard pretty much anywhere, a nekid man wearing nothing more than a rag to cover his modesty. Maybe the standard has made it less objectionable, much in the same way much fewer people seem to object to semi naked females in any given genre these days. You could , however, reasonably argue that the afore mentioned barbarianesque models are quite objectifying toward men.
    I respect your viewpoint of course, one mans meat is anothers poison and all that. Just food for thought.

    Speakign of which, those burgers are overdue...

    I have also had a thought about wargaming not being for kids. Call of Duty 4 has a huge 18 rated logo on the front and back of the box due to the scenes of violence and war. Manhunt has a Warning Parental Advisory logo on the front of it due to the torture/murder porn. Assault on Black Reach has a 3+ logo on it due to small parts.
    And yet the afore mentioned computer games still find themselves into the hands of kids the same age as gamer kids. The kid doesn't (or shouldn't) control censorship, the parent should. That aside, how many of the blokes in here grew up playing at soldiers? We grew up watching the likes of Hogans Heros and the Great Escape at xmas, war was brilliant, wasn't it? Now think how many of you thought past the blaze of glory to rape, murder, massive violence, blood , guts and the reality that it could quite easily be your blood and/or guts in a heartbeat?

    More food for thought.

    But that's my point.....
    the male barbarians are covered in the most specific area, but females seldom cover up. Apparently, only men are modest in barbarian society.

    Also, I do not consider 'half-naked' offensive, as it is impossible to not be desensitized to that aspect in a society which covets the bikini. I do, however, think certain things shouldn't be seen by everyone...

    Sculpting and casting a wang is difficult.
    The market is driven toward nerdy, generally girlfriend-less, virgin, pubescent males...surprise, slap a set o' tits on a piece o' lead and you just made a SALE!
    Nekkid females require LESS sculpting and material, while nekkid males require more!
    Nekkid men are gross, all hanging out and protrude-y, while nekkid femmes are beautious all prettified, neat and tidy.

    just some thoughts that bounce and jiggle in my head.

    I dunno, there are actually nekid man minis kicking about. Bugger if I remember who does them.
    There is also the cost of resource, and time. Time is money! Resource is money!

    How is it though, that no one is drawing nekid chicks in the snow? I've lost count of the amount of penises i've seen scrawled on car roofs these past few weeks...My mate drove to work with one on his for 2 days before he noticed lol!

    I didn't know where to look. It's understandable.

    @Cannonfodder

    Truthfully, I cant stand when people say showing boobs is objectifying women. They are boobs on a metal model, boobs are for all intents and purposes, an attractive shape. A penis is not, and most girls agree that it is not, regardless of whether they like them or not.

    However a man baring full chest and showing off some leg is quite attractive, and to be honest possibly even more so because the "bits" are hidden. You dont see many nude male models because women arent generally as into that, they like the concepts.

    So objectifying of men would not look the same (to us all) as women because men are visual and women are conceptual.

    The fact is, that while this diorama suggests a concept, it does not SHOW it occuring


    That is what makes it great, without going "too far" in my opinion
