I'd say he's a little bit on the large side. in particular his head. I'm using Ed's pirate as a scale guide for wastelander figures. obviously it's early days.
i wouldn't take the comic book styling too far on the miniatures (though a little exageration is ok). as he is going to be a character its not so much of an issue. as i said in my PM to you, I'm hoping to do many of the followres myself and they will be the same height as Eds pirate.
I'm leaving the door open for community members to let thier creativity loose on characters, I'll be doing a few myself as well.
What style of clothing are you thinking of going with?
The head at the moment is just a reference point. The final size can be smaller without any problem.
As for the clothes ... Big boots with some protection from metal, rivets, etc. Jeans or trousers, battered by the use and patchy. A tank top that reveals the stomach. In the back a big bag of hanging things (some dead vermin, pans and the like) He could have a bandage on his arms or armor made from scrap metal and that sort of thing typical of post-apocalypse.
Thats, why i said early day lol. i was meaning that as is the head would end up too large if you added detail on to of it. i suspected it might just be a place holder. body size is good. he's tall but i suspect that due to his weight he's probably a second or third generation guild member of higher rank. he's eaten well throughout his life so he had good skeletal growth and thus height compared to the average
re: clothes, instead of jeans have you thought of doing a bib overall/dungeree style garment (probably of leather or coarse animal hair/wool or wasteland plant fibre based fabric) tied at the waist like an apron because his gut nolonger fits within it?
There will be some 'special characters' one of which is the current leader of one of the settlements, he doesn't have a name yet only a title 'The Gourmet of Dogpit' if this guys going to be a cook and trader then it might be possible tie it in with that idea.
dogpit is a nest of brothels, drinking dens, gambling houses and fighting pits. it is frequented by both the bloody dawn and the guild so only the guards are allowed to carry weapons, everyone else must check them at the gates. it is a place that boasts to cater to any appetite and is an important and popular stop on the trade routes. a vaulble source of supplies and respite for the bandits and a sanctury for trade caravans in a region thats close the the bloddy dawns biggest stronghold.
Dogpit gre from an inn and a few shanty huts, made rich by passing traders. they sold what they could, thier skills, thier time and even thier bodies. the current Gourmet is descended from the propriator of that first in and as familly tradition dictates he holds court from his kitchen, issuing orders amongst bubling cauldrons and vast stone ovens. as well as overseeing the settlement he personally cooks for his most important customers and diplomatic contacts.
his wealth affords a well equiped militia which police the trade route for miles around, enforcing the gourmet's policy of no violence withing sight of Dogpit (except when its been paid for). The gourmet never leaves Dogpits walls except in the event of a threat he deems worrisome enough to require his personal oversight. on these rare occasions the gourmet is expected to lead the countercharge personally.
So will the guy get a normal face or a mask? For some reason I really dig the idea that he has some sort of plate in front of his face because the thing got burnt off in the past. It might even be that extreme that his face melted together with the mask, meaning the mask is a sign of some old gang or faction.

I have not yet decided on the face of the miniature. There are a few ideas in the air, but nothing definitive XD As the head will be a separate piece, I had thought of doing more than one. I'm looking for ideas in old yakuza films and manga Grappler Baki. "I would like to make an expressive face and strong.
Add the options for a mask and some protections made from scrap metal, may be a good idea.
