After a great deal of thought on what species to do for our next project, Anna and I have made up a list.  We thought we'd put it over to you to choose/vote which species you'd like us to make from this list.

This project will be slightly different from our previous one; there will be a choice of ordering either a raw (straight from the mould), prepped (mould lines removed and holes filled) or painted castings.

All will be made in 1:22 scale except the Asian Golden Cat which will be made in a larger scale 1:10

The list of animals are as follows:

Forest Buffalo ~ pair
Hirola ~ pair
Bontebok ~ pair
African Wild Ass ~ pair
Asian Golden cat ~ pair
Grevy's Zebra ~ pair with foal

Please Note: a painted Grevy's zebra will be more expensive due to it's complicated pattern.

I love all of the species, what fantastic choices! The only one I would not choose is the golden cat, just too large a scale for my model, sorry PeGe! Other then that I love them all, i think in order I would vote:
Grevy's zebra
African wild ass
Forest buffalo
Hirola
Bontebok (even though this is one of my favorite antelope sp, Ana has done three for me already)
Golden cat (I love cats, but the scale is just too big for my diorama and the cat too small to work in 1:22)

With that list my vote for Harriet and Ana to make was the forest buffalo, it would be a figure that isn't available from the brand names, even though it isn't my favorite species.

Dear Harriet and Ana,

I love these polls! I just saw on you tube a documentary about the hirola : only 250 animals survive in the world and no one is in captivity ! I was looking at them , how beautiful these creatures are and how precious...and was thinking " how wonderful it would be if one of our skilled masters in sts forum could reproduce them"...and now my dreams come true !! I just voted for the hirola of course even though all the others are just fabulous...hope anyway that hirola will win !

Wow, that's really hard. The Forest Buffalo jumps out at me initially. But both antelopes sound amazing too. And of course the Golden cat would be extremely desirable as well. I think I may need to think about it some more and return.

Very difficult to choose just one animal. I like them all, but for some time I expect to see some brand make a wild ass figure.Very Happy Very Happy cheers

I love them all (but only like the golden cat--sorry hooves haters cat ), but after much consideration I went for the Hirola. It is a unique antelope. My second was the forest buffalo--a great species!

It's not often that I have to look up an animal to see what is being talked about, and I had to do that with one of these... Anyways, I voted for three, the buffalo, cat, and wild ass. It doesn't matter who wins this for me, I know they will be beautifully mastered anyways!

Me too. I think I am a big animal know-it-all but had no idea what a Hirola was. I thought it was a big-time gambler--get it, High-Roller?? lol! (cricket sounds)

Ha! I got your joke, even before you explained it. Laughing Not many people can catch me unawares on an animal species, so that was a rare event. Most people see me as a know-it-all when it comes to animals, and many I haven't even really blabbed about different species too! Maybe animal collecting can give off vibes...

Oh, I was sleeping while an exciting partnership was restarting. Sleep
I voted in the buffalo and also the cat. It looks buffalo will win, anything with hooves and horns is always best appreciated at this forum. Very Happy
Though, the figure I am sure would make a bigger contrast in quality with any hypothetic future release from a toy brand, is the zebra. I am sure you would give a painting to it that no brand will ever be able of approach.
Though, my votes go to the forest buffalo because I believe it will be only ignored because of the main importance of cape buffalos and for the golden cat because it will also be ahrdly released and surely the final result will be much cheaper than grevy's zebra. Idea bounce

If forest buffalo wins the scale will be 1:22. All others too except the Golden cat this would be 1:10. Very Happy

hmm, i think it was unfair competition for the cats,.. Just african hoove-life. but interesting species. So it just HAD to become one of them. For me, there are more spectacular species than the forest buffalo i the list, but it's also unusual and very beautiful of course,....

Thank you for voting and commenting everyone cheers

BTW, anyone knows is there any zoo in Holland (or Belgium) keeping Forest Buffalos? I remember website with index of animals where it was possible to check which zoo keeps certain species but I don't have address of this website anymore Rolling Eyes

Oh, and I would like to ask you friends for a help in this project. If any of you took photos of these buffalos in the zoo, would you be so kind to post it please? For example to this topic? It will be very helpful for reference. Thank you! sunny

Oh, and I would like to ask you friends for a help in this project. If any of you took photos of these buffalos in the zoo, would you be so kind to post it please? For example to this topic? It will be very helpful for reference. Thank you!  sunny
That would be helpful! Great idea Anna cheers

Thank you for voting and commenting everyone cheers

BTW, anyone knows is there any zoo in Holland (or Belgium) keeping Forest Buffalos? I remember website with index of animals where it was possible to check which zoo keeps certain species but I don't have address of this website anymore Rolling Eyes
I found that the Safaripark Beekse Bergen in Hilvarenbeek, in the Netherlands have a group.

Look here you can finde all animal species who are in european Zoos, but it's only german.

Dear Harriet & Ana

Whilst you make a male and female, any chance someone could make a calf and complete the family?  How about a calf in a pose like the following examples which I adore:

Also whilst on the subject of suggestions may I offer a few pose suggestions for either male or female or both? I had hoped CollectA would make this but really nice to know both of you will do this instead.  Attached are a few images I collated a long time back which I absolutely adore - I have placed them in order of preference starting with my most favourite image first although the first two shown are my absolute favourite poses.  Just some ideas:

Thank you Bryan and Numaan!! cheers cheers cheers 

@Bryan, that's exactly the website I knew and couldn't find again. Thank you very much for link!!!

@Numaan, one of these poses will be for male as far as I know Wink Very Happy  But female will be grazing, you think it's a good idea? Standing and grazing animals will make nice pair I think Very Happy
About calf, we will see Wink

Hi Ana

I think one animal should be 'walking' and one should be standing, grazing is nice but it can take away from the excitement of a model because the head is lowered too far down - either have the head lowered but not too down or go for the first picture with the animal look upwards which is different.

just an idea. :-)

Even though I've already started sculpting it in grazing pose I will consider changing the pose for the one with head slightly upper. I thought about it earlier today too actually. I will see.
