Anyone have any proxy suggestions for the Musician and/or Standard Bearer for the Icingstead faction? I found 02271 - Bruce O'Hugh (highland bagpiper looking figure) to possibly use as a Barbarian Musician, but haven't found anything else to use as proxies for the desired pieces. Thanks!!
So I've recently been getting involved in Heroscape which is a game which the company killed 5 years ago but has a thriving after market community ( heroscapers.com ). Since it was very popular and it's out of print the game minis are selling on Ebay. Many of them are reasonably priced but many are pretty outrageous. So proxies are generally widely accepted. But I began noticing some similarities between the Reaper Bones offerings and some of the Heroscape stuff. For example Zelrig is a Heroscape dragon that is now on ebay in the $80 range. Zelrig: Who looks remarkably similar to 77109: Fire Dragon: Here are the Heroscape DzuTeh (currently around $25 for the squad on ebay): And conveniently, in Reaper KS 3 here's the chill out set: In Heroscape there are the Knights of Weston (also around $25 for a squad on ebay): And here in KS3 again there are the crusaders: well, the crusaders are 12th century and the knights of west are closer to 15th or 16th century, but close enough.... And there are others..... Coincidence? IDK, but it's cool that reaper is making these available so cheaply and we can take advantage of them. Also, they are certainly much better quality molds than the original heroscape minis. Just thought I'd mention this in case anyone else might be interested.
