I think Reycal could look good in Alice's body. You could even dress her up and make a fine looking goth loli.

You wanted it, now here it is! :thumbsup:

Poor Reycal is intimidated by this gentleman but Howling wants none of it.

On a side note, I am building a rather massive house for use in the comic that can be found here viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1652. This thing is gonna be A. HUGE and B. SWEET!

oh boy.... I'm not sure about posting the following photo really... let's just say they are not pretty...

OK, good news first: Reycal's skintone is very similar to Annelotte, Alice and Ymir. Ymir might be very slightly lighter than Alice's skintone, but Reycal is probably right between the 2, with only minute difference that I can't really see.
Image

Then things go downhill here. When we try it on Annelotte, we can see that Reycal's neck is a little bit long, but it's not too bad because of the large chest and shoulder pieces of Annelotte.
Image

So why's this happening? It's because Reycal is using a doublejointed neck piece, with the top joint go deep into Reycal's head and bottom joint half buried in the torso. While all Queen's Blade figures use a single joint, with a portion of the neck molded to the root of the head where the joint connect to.
Image

This problem is amplified on Alice's body, with a small torso and fully exposed shoulder making the double joint neck look even longer (alright when viewed from the front, but worse from the side). And changing to the single joint is even worse..... (..urgh....)
ImageImage

not much better with Ymir's body:
ImageImage

In short, Reycal's head is not really compatible with QB figures...

But at least it look good with Annelotte's body, imho. And that's the most reasonable, proportional crossover we'll ever get }:>
Btw, saw your attempt with Alice & Annelotte.
Good job!!

Since this seems to be my only thread where I post new characters for my project, allow me if you would all be so kind to post some pics of my latest addition to my collection.

Wow. Howling is tall and Saber short.
Image

I find these exercises important for me to learn how to pose characters and best camera angles to shoot from.
Image

As stated earlier. I think I should of done a better job for Howling but she was never designed to hold a sword.
Image

And probably my favorite one of all. Reycal is analyzing Saber's Avalon as she holds Excaliber and Howling holds Avalon's scabbard up.

Aw, man! I want a Figma Saber.....All I got is that stupid Saber Alt-*Stabbed in the hand with Dark Excalibur*

And probably my favorite one of all. Reycal is analyzing Saber's Avalon as she holds Excaliber and Howling holds Avalon's scabbard up.

Wait....exactly what is Reycal analyzing? Because the sword is called Excalibur, and the scabbard is called Avalon. :biggrin:

Avalon is the scabbard for Excalibur. The other sword is Caliburn. And if you have the transparent sword, it's Excalibur, hidden by a spell called Invisible Air.
