    Minis we would like to see

    I'd love to see a pretty accurate Japanese Miko type mini. Would work for Chronoscope stuff or even for a more fantasy end with it.

    Chronscope minis we'd like to see thread 2

    And could that IMEF squad please have at least one female member who is armored and acts like one of the male members? That is, a reasonably burly woman in standard IMEF armor with female modifications but not breast cups who is running, shooting, or otherwise engaged in combat. The current female IMEF soldier is cute, but she looks like the team mascot rather than one of the soldiers. I saw her as more of in a stripped down armor for mobility options. She's the stay pretty damn far away and provide cover with the anti-material rifle she's got. There are also a few other minis that kind of match her for other lightly armored characters though by other companies (CMON: Mech Pilot and MicroArts: Sarah Anderson) that are pretty simple to convert into other specialists (Medic and Tech). Okay, sure, that's a fine role to have a figure fill, but why is it filled by the only female on the squad, and why is she wearing space-boob-plate? She's fine in a vacuum, but you have to acknowledge that (a) there is only one woman on the squad, (b) she is clearly sexed up, when none of the men are, and © she's in an extremely passive pose, when all the men are in action poses. The issue isn't the one figure, it's the fact that she is the only woman. Thus, Pingo's request for more female IMEF soldiers. Context is important! She looks like pre-Qeen of Blades Kerrigan... But for something I'd love to see, an IMEF conversion kit with various things having the logo, a couple of the guns, and bits of gear. I'm considering getting a few M113 kits for my use of the squad and a few extras from other sources (Think of them as something akin to X-Com)
  3. One thing with the crane, you might want to modify where the latter loops are/adjust the entire height so that each one is the right size and height for someone to place a mini on for RP or wargaming on it to make things easier there.
  4. While not prepainted, some of the old plasticville kits might work for you and their colors do tend to be designed to look okay out of the box. Mainly their farm and a few others have stuff you could use with very little work, though if you take time to actually paint them, they look rather good. Most of their stuff, however, would still be a great option for chronoscope or similar minis with a modern setting

But more IMEF troops would be nice (Hopefully we'll get a bit more than teasing about Bulldog). I'd like a few similar to the "standard" trooper armed with combat shotguns. Another big thing would be a set that had a bunch of the IMEF rifle in the future weapons kit put into a single pack. Rather than $4 a piece and ones that would be useless if you want a force using them.
  6. Same here about digging through the thread. While weapons would be easier than the body part ones, even the modern ones would be far easier to modify or work out properly for the specific mini in plastic.
  7. I'd love to see the conversion kits getting added to the bones stuff. Plastic is much easier to work with when you need to work bits of them down to fit right.

    The Gloomy Forest

    Floral wire does that, an easy fix is to get some of the gel superglue and an old brush (Or do what I did and stop at the craft isle of walmart and buy a large package of the kids brushes of the type included with kids watercolor or other painting kits), give it a nice layer overtop the wire and let it set and then give it a second layer. The end result is clear and makes the entire thing a lot more solid.
  9. I used that once, then I discovered that it tended to be easier to find and often cheaper to just go to a hardware store and look at the vinyl flooring tiles that have the right texture. Either grab black ones or spray then drybrush as stone. Then cut to shape and peel the back and apply to the base. If you want something a few steps up, use some of the fake leather options at a craft store, the alligator ones tend to work the best for it. Do the same thing and use super glue.

    The mutant thing could probably be done by a "mutation" conversion kit, that would be pretty fun and useful in a lot of ways. Stray tentacles can be useful in other ways than just as parts of a whole with even just the classic of a piece of scenery with one reaching out a grating to snatch the unwary Reap already has this, which my eldest has used to good effect: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/tentacles/latest/03334 Was thinking one with extra heads and other mutations as well.

    Doctor Who stand-ins

    There are also the plastic daleks that the UK seems to have in abundance from the Dr. Who magazine that I see a lot of people with.

    Bones IMEF

    yeah it is, mainly because I've used it with the ones I currently have (And a couple other minis I've found that seem to fit the aesthetics of the IMEF troops for specialists as a medic and tech). Hoping we'll get both a Bones and Chronoscope version of Bulldog whenever he comes out

    Bones IMEF

    I'm kind of more concerned about them being a bit small and needing to match the base because they actually look like they've got some rather decent details.
