Re: Favorite Faction Minis
That is pretty obvious - Darkness. Although Malia is also very "nice", Darkness is amazing as a whole.

I would have voted for Darkness, but the Trolls just ruin it for me. But I'm excited to see how it looks after they tweak that model. All of the other Darkness sculpts are amazing.

For me it's a toss up between Sky and Earth overall. Both are done really really well.

I couldn't agree more. This was the first pass 3D model and it didn't quite match my concept art. They didn't have enough time to respond to feedback before we went live. The final piece will be much more Trollish since my intention was for them to match up well with the Trolls that Fenris Games already produces.

My hope for the trolls was that while they may have a somewhat apish posture, they would not physically look like apes. I'm sure at a minimum their head will be changing quite a bit.

It's funny that I never personally had any problem with the trolls. Maybe I was blinded by the other minis' awesomeness or I have bad taste. x)

I hope this is seen as constructive criticism Mr. Petersen, but given the results of the poll I think there seems to be a notable lack of excitement for the Invisible God's miniatures; for me at least that much is true.

I really like the Invisible God in terms of concept and it'll definitely be one of the factions I'll be maining when not playing Sky, but other than the Towers' design I don't feel very inspired by any of the minis. I know you mentioned in a post that you like their buildings' designs, but the castles are actually my least favourite sculpts: when I see the castles I can't help but see big rectangles. (I suppose the ziggurats could be said to be "just" pyramids too, but they seem a lot more dynamic and interesting.) I appreciate that the faction is all about logic and reason, but maybe its designs are a tad TOO realistic. x) That being said, in real life there are many amazing castles out there....
