Minis we would like to see (fantasy version)

Recommended Posts

Two figures I'd love to see made:

 

Bulette

 

Ankheg

 

 

Some of my reasons:

1. I hate the cheap plastic figures and won't buy the versions of these that exist.

2. As far as I know, the ankheg has never appeared in metal. I'd dearly like one of these.

3. The bulette did have a metal version once upon a time put out by Ral Partha. However, Iron Wind appears to be unable to re-release this figure. This leaves e-bay as about the only source for a decent bulette figure. I have tried repeatedly to obtain one from there, to no avail, with the item typically going for $20-$25.

I think that Reaper did make a bulette... They called it a Burrowing Horror, however. 02919, if I remember the number correctly.

 

That said, a fully emerged bulette at the least would be cool.

Sophie the Succubus sculpted by Kev White of Hasslefree Miniatures. =)

 

I'd love to see a Kev White 54mm or 72mm version of the Sophie art from the blister packs (although any Kev Sophie would be great)

 

Dire animals (all the popular ones that Druids like to throw at people - dire badgers, dire wolves, dire polar bears, etc)

 

More Dwarven bear riders and some Dwarven moose riders.

More humorous figures or figures doing humorous things. Oswald the Overladen Henchman is all by himself.

 

A headless horseman

 

Crocadiles and snakes for swamp adventures

1. Clerics/heavy armored types with long spears.

 

2. Barbarians with mail hauberks /breastplates.

 

 

 

There is a surprising shortage of spear-wielders in the reaper line, and virtually no long spear/pike types. Yet in the D&D 3.5, virtually every standard cleric uses a longspear. I know clerics with longspears doesn't exactly conform to any historical OR fantasy archetype, but it is the most common cleric weapon in the game. Yes I know reaper doesnt make stuff specific for the game, but they sure do dance around it awwww-ful close. Its like refusing to make Gnome minis, because the world/setting Reaper minis are supposed to represent (Taltos) for whatever reason doesn't have gnomes.

 

Same for barbarians-most wear chainmail or breastplates (mithril breastplates being the holy grail of barbarian armor). Some like my half-orc barbarian/cleric wear full plate. A barbarian in full plate (with requisite wild hair, furs, and wolf's-head hilted greatsword) would rock.

 

While I am at it:

 

3. Tusk-less half orc; in full plate-under-(Werner Klock bathalian pirate style)-sleeveless overcoat (cleric's adventuring vestments), and a wolf-skull pommeled greatsword in his right hand , pointing his finger (his left hand) as if rebuking, wearing a war-hat style helm, with a big rapper-type double-finger ring as his holy symbol (sun god please).

 

Hey, it could happen. But Dang wouldn't it make a great looking mini!

1) MORE 72mm minis (some Warlord or DHA characters ;) )

 

2) Siege stuff (oil pots, battering rams, petards)

 

one) I think picking a handful of Warlord characters of different factions and sculpting them larger would be popular among all of the squeeing Warlord fans (myself included)

 

two) One never knows when one might need specialized siege equipment for one's webcomic.

Just a few requests :poke: :

 

Female halfling rogue

 

Female halfling wizard

 

Male & female halfling clerics

(edit) And barbarians!

 

Female dwarf wizard

 

Male & female gnomes of all types. Need more gnomes. And I would respectfully request that they be differentiated more from the halfling minis by their clothing or physical features. Currently the halflings and gnomes are almost interchangeable except that the halflings are always barefoot.

 

Male & female elf monks and barbarians.

 

Half-orcs that look more human. More half-orcs of all types.

 

Less dramatic 'action' poses. Those do look gorgeous and are great when painted as display pieces, but they are awkward as tabletop minis. They take up more space when they have protruding swords or flaring cloaks.

 

Packs of mounted and unmounted versions of the same figure.

 

Mounts for the smaller races - dogs, lizards, giant birds, etc.

 

Fewer minis that require assembly.

 

Minis with empty hands sculpted to receive weapons, similar to what Thunderbolt Mountain does. I'd like to be able to use my weapon packs without all the labor that's involved in a weapon swap. ::):

 

Ladystorm, there's not a thread in the Warlord forums for "Warlord minis we would like to see". Where shall we post such requests?

Bard Musical Instruments

 

Similar to the weapons packs, but things like lutes, harps, drums, etc. A lot of mini's make decent bards, a simple add of an instrument would really allow those figures to say "Hey, I'm a bard"

Something like this?

A blindfolded Celestial holding Scales and Sword.

 

I'm being lazy today and don't want to scratchbuild/kitbash a Battle Totem for Crusaders like I did for the Reven Throne of Skulls.
