Chronscope minis we'd like to see thread 2

Recommended Posts

This may have already come up, but I have it on the brain again: I'd really love some mounted cowboys. Reaper has a huge line of western figures, but not one of them is on horseback. I'd even settle for a rearing horse in appropriate gear (reins, saddle, stirrups, etc). The only other horses are either underdressed (Nefsokar riders seem to ride bareback on little carpets) or overdressed, in the case of knights and such.

 

Bones, of course, would make this way more affordable, as opposed to the $10+ for metal horses, and easier to cut the riders off and put the cowpoke of your choosing up there.

There is at least one other miniatures company I know who do Wild West figures, with a mounted and on foot version of each figure sold together.  It would be great to see something like that from Reaper!

Gorgonopsids or similar biggish pre-dinosaur riding-suitable reptiles.  I hear a certain TaleSpinner might be interested in sculpting them too.

From the Travels of Sir ForScale:

 

not-Bunnicula

undead vegetables

...

...

And pretty much the rest of the books I grew up on.

 

EDIT: Also resin vignette bases for sci-fi, steampunk, modern, and wild west.

I agree with both of the above ideas.

Hmm, i guess you can't post pictures in this thread. Oh well, I"d love to see the mounted Enclave looking guy on the big cat mount from the Gamma World 3rd edition cover. How cool would that be?!!!

 Also, I wouldnt mind some Warrior Rabbits, and again, a werewolf wearing a tuxedo.

Someone (Ralpartha I think) did a large collectible one of that guy.  I think my FLGS still has one on the shelf.

Also since everyother line has it we need a not Laura Croft mini too.

 

(Sorry for accidental "post necromancy," but....)  You could just about take every other Sophie 32mm figure minus the wings, and it'd make a great Chronoscope addition.

 

#01502 "Cowgirl Sophie" (https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/sophie/latest/01502)

Okay, no pretense of "historical accuracy" here, but I SUPPOSE with a little clever painting (and minus those wings), this could work for a Wild West character.  But then, if #50216 "Sheila Silver, Cowgirl" can get in the line, that might not matter ( https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/cowgirl/latest/50216).

 

#01504 "Sci-Fi Sophie" (https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/sophie/latest/01504)

This is my favorite example.  Minus the bat-wings -- and, better yet, give her some sort of rocket-pack/grav-pack/flying-nacelles/techno-wings -- this works well as a sci-fi action pose.  One of these days, I've got to pick one of these up to convert, but I keep missing the "12 Days of Christmas" chances.

 

#01513 "Biker Sophie" (https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/sophie/latest/01513)

If not for the wings, we've got a pretty straightforward "biker" type who'd fit in the Chronoscope line.

 

#01514 "Adventure Sophie" ( https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/sophie/latest/01514 )

This is pretty much perfect as a "not-Laura-Croft" adventurer type.  If a "sans-wings" version were available for the Chronoscope line, I'm sure it'd see plenty of action.

 

#01519 "Pirate Sophie" (https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/sophie/latest/01519)

Okay, there are probably plenty of female-pirate-captain figures available already, but again, if not for the demon wings, this would make for a perfect regular-use mini.  (I think pirate types have ended up classified as "fantasy" rather than fitting under Chronoscope, however, so maybe this doesn't fit my case.)  #01420 (which is still available in "Pirates of the Dragonspine Sea") fits in the same category.

 

#01523 "Reaper Con Sophie 2013" (https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/sophie/latest/01523)

This was with the circus/carnival theme.  Minus the wings, she works as some sort of barker/ringmaster/showgirl type for some sort of steampunk setting.  (I don't suppose the "hot pants" would be entirely period-appropriate for a more conventional Victorian-era setting.)

  The "Ultimate ATV" model is riding a giant mutated ferret/weasel/mustelid, actually. The body's too long to be feline.

(I bought the one that was at the store.)

 

 But I'll second/third/fourth the suggestion for some not-Hoops, not-Carrin and not-Grens... Or even just straight-up character types, especially mutated plants, lol.

I'd love any sort of "Not Gamma World" miniatures.  Mutant humans, barbarians w/high tech equipment, mutant animals (both monsters and characters).
