  1. I'd also really like to see some of the missing Planar beings. Such as... - A giant sized Angel on the same size scale as all the big demons lords and arch-devils available. - More varied Angels in general. - Some Fey-like Outsiders (Eladrin, Azats, etc.). Including a giant, butterfly-winged, "Queen of the Fey" type. - A large , winged, "Horned Devil" with a spiked chain. - A "Barbed Devil". - Imps, Quaits, Cerubs, etc. - A Medium Earth Elemental. - A Medium Water Elemental. Now that there will be a set of three Stone Giants coming out in Bones 4 I'd really like to complete my giants collection. Which would mean... - Three Storm Giants (including an up-sized version of 77163) and an animal companion (something aquatic?). - Three Cloud Giants (including an up-sized version of 77162) and an animal companion (giant eagle?). - A Female Hill Giant. Other Humanoids below that which I'd like to see would be... - Female Hellborn Armored Warrior type and Male Hellborn Rogue type. - More varied Orcs (both in class and gender). - More female and male Hobgoblins in general. - More varied Lizard-folk. As for Humans there's still a lot that I feel is missing... - Tasteful African inspired figures. Not just a bunch of crude half naked savages. - "Middle Eastern" style figures of all different classes. Including more then generic belly dancer types btw. - Human Druids. I can't think of a single Bones figure that would make for a decent Human Druid. - Lower end Human Warriors, of both genders, in armors other then full plate. Like full chain for example. Full plate covered a blip in time in one corner of the world. Lamellar was used across the breadth of the Old World over thousands of years. Yet we don't have a single figure in Lamellar. :/
  2. I tried paying the difference but it wouldn't update. Might try that idea with the bases. Thanks for the suggestion.
  3. Hello. Before the Kickstarter ended I was using the Pledge Calculator to figure out how much money I needed to pledge. It came to $230 and some change. So I rounded up to $231 and figured I was set. Sometime after the Kickstarter finished the price went up. It now says I owe 16 cents and I can't seem to figure out how to pay it? Does anybody know how to fix that?
  4. People of both sexes in lamellar armor (splint mail). It was used for thousands of years (tens of thousands of years if include the idea of mythical, Conan style, lost civilizations) all across the Old World. From North Africa to the depths of Siberia and everywhere in between. In the history of armor full plate was a brief afterthought, in one corner of the world, that was pretty much obsolete as soon as it was invented. Yet for some reason full plate has been fetishized to the point that it's all we ever see on minis. Stylistically it would be nice to have more warrior options then shirtless barbarians and knights from right at the very end of the medieval period. Full plate doesn't even exist in most of my settings (generally based on the periods between 1,200 BC to 1,066 AD for the most part). Which seriously limits my warriors options. The same applies for chain mail and scale armor. Some Norman style knights would be a nice change of pace. Even in generic D&D worlds they can be used as lower level warriors. Not everyone you meet is going to be a high level PC.
  5. Female orcs Female hobgoblins Female bugbears Female ettin Female cyclops More female giants (the "new scale" fire giant gender ratio is 5 to 1 right now... )
  6. Traditional (Conan/Mythos style) legged Serpent Folk.

    Bones 4 is Coming Soon!

    Nooo! This looks awesome but it's too much to keep up with. I'm a really slow painter. :(
  8. Nice. How did you get the Reaper Catalog Numbers?
  9. I'd love to see Arabs & Persians and a Dhow to go with them. With a range of classes therein. From armored warriors to spell casters.
  10. I would love to see a Cog, Dhow, and Junk (Western/Atlantic Ocean, Southern/Indian Ocean, and Eastern/Pacific Ocean) of comparable sizes (one main deck/hold, and a quarterdeck, at least 4 in wide and 12 in long). That would cover sailing ships for all the major Old World cultural regions of the same general time period (Medieval tech level). Ya... I know that's a picture of a Carrack (Nau). I suppose a Carrack, Caravel, and Junk could work too if you want to go more modern (Renaissance Era).
  11. More commoners, townsfolk, town guards, village priests, etc. Like http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/latest/03789 There aren't any good quality, reasonably priced, NPC types anywhere on the market. People generally don't want to spend too much on NPCs. By making them affordable this is somewhere that Bones could really excel. It's a missing need that so many of us have.

    Skill Based Fantasy RPG

    I've never heard of Mouse Guard before. Is that what all those Mousling figures are for? Chaosium's BRP looks interesting. It seems pretty straight forward and I've toyed with the idea of running a high fantasy game set in Lovecraft's Dreamlands. I've heard good things about Savage Worlds but I have no understanding of how it works. Would it be possible to do a D&D style game (setting wise) using it? Earthdawn looked really awesome when I was a kid. It had an awesome flavor. Never had the chance to play it though. It also seemed needlessly complicated. Maybe that was just because I was a kid though?

    Skill Based Fantasy RPG

    I saw a topic here asking about a good rules light fantasy RPG and it got me thinking what I really want is a good skill based fantasy RPG. In my opinion class/level/hp based systems are actually kind of ridiculous. Back when I really started getting into gaming I liked systems like White Wolf's World of Darkness, the old West End Games version of Star Wars, Cyberpunk 2020, the Call of Cthulhu, and especially Ars Magica. With that in mind what are some good skill based systems you would recommend? The only one I can think of right now is Runequest but I've never actually played it and I've heard it's a bit "fiddly". Whatever that means.

    Highlight advice

    One of the ways I like to paint what we call red hair is by shading with a more reddish color, having an orange primary color, and finishing with more blondish highlights. You don't always have to just use darker and lighter shades of the same color when shading and highlighting. Going one step over of the color wheel can provide some nice contrast. Especially with hair that tends not to be a uniform color anyways.
  15. Ugh! I hate when they come pre-glued. It makes it impossible to get in some hard to paint corners and prying them apart is such a pain. Please make them stop Reaper.
