One of the things that I really enjoy doing with chibi miniatures is creating tributes to classic video games.

The style lends itself to this so well that often all that I really need to do is pick a color scheme that fits. For others, I create more elaborate conversions.

When I decided to create the Light Warriors from the first Final Fantasy game, I did both. Some of the characters worked by just putting the proper color scheme onto existing minis, some required a little conversion, while others required lots of sculpting and customization.

Fighter and Thief are just stock minis. Black Belt has only a little conversion for his hair. But the three mages are all heavily converted custom minis, using bits from Super Dungeon, Ninja All Stars and even Rail Raiders to get the look they have here.
