You're not on Rubi-Ka unless you're surrounded by leets. The little guys are everywhere in many forms.
Since there are no existing miniatures of leets I've had to ask some sculptors to make me some.
Below are the work in progress and finished shots from the different sculptors. I asked each to make three leets in total; a standing leet, a grooming leet and a running leet.
Jason works quickly and his were the first progress pictures I got. Everything looked fine except the tails which were too fat, this was soon remedied though and my first set of leets is well on the way to becoming a reality.
Here are mike's WIP photos. A good start but needed a bigger head. I like the feet, too big for a leet but with bags of character so I'm keeping them.
The bigger head made a great difference but now the eyes needed enlarging.
And here we are, perfect. This chap stands around 15mm tall.
Curtis only sent one set of photos and the little chap was spot on and needed no changes. I like the addition of eyelids and the expression on the scratching one is priceless.

Here are the first pics I got from Steve, looking good with fantastic animation but they need to be slightly bulkier.
Here they are bulked out and with the final detailing added.
Here are the finished and cast Leets
Some of my favourite (if that's the right word) monsters are Infectors. There are many different types on both Rubi-Ka and in the Shadowlands but they all exhibit the same behaviour. They attack in packs and they're very, very viscous. They are accompanied by the sound of buzzing flies which swarm around them. Often you hear the flies before you see the Infectors.
Mike Thorp agreed to sculpt me an Infector for a very reasonable fee.
