Hasslefree Miniatures does an excellent not-Snake Plissken. No need to duplicate their work.

Plainly, I need to pay more attention to Hasslefree; this is the second time I've been told they do a figure I want!

But do they do werechickens?


Well, no. But they do this: Goat Boy

the not-Snake is in their advertising on TMP and I think it's in their header (or whatever the top of the page is called) on their website. But I've never seen it in their store. Or I would already own one.

I am pretty sure they don't have werechickens or wereturkeys, sorry.


He's there now. I've had one for a long time. A very nice miniature.

How about a "set" of figures to represent a size changing superhero? One normal (25mm) size, one tiny (5-10mm) and one big (50-80mm). Superfigs does something similar, but their figures just aren't quite the same quality as Reaper.

I would like to see a Hooper. That is, a dancer that uses a hula-hoop instead of a ribbon.

I would very much like to have figures that represent the typical "space adventurer" PCs of games like Traveller, Star Frontiers, Star Wars, etc. There are plenty of armored space marines, and exotic gothic space-fantasy figures, but if you just want to depict the crew of a tramp freighter, there's not a whole lot to choose from out there.

The science fiction I grew up with had a particular look: a usually tight spandex-looking jumpsuit or pants, but not the perfectly smooth ones of the earlier pulp SF era; they were textured with seams, pockets, zip fronts, or ribbed detailing. Tall boots, often a jacket or vest, and/or a belt with pouches or electronic gizmos. Long gloves or forearm guards were popular, often with a wrist computer or communicator built in.

And ideally, not just one or two such miniatures, but at least 4-6, enough for a full crew/adventuring party.

Some examples of the kind of look I'm talking about:

I'd like to see as many Traveller based minis as possible without breaking copyright.


Same here, generic sci-fi,

I've REALLY enjoyed the 3 sets of Ridolfi 'Gray Aliens' and the one set by Michael Brower....(as well as the other 'Alien Overlord' series by Gene Van Horne, among others)....but I'm HOPING that 2012 will see the release of some MORE of the Ridolfi-style...maybe with MORE accessories/small walker/hover-platform/saucer????? Maybe even an 'exam' set with male/female human subjects!?

(and I'd STILL like to see a 'Space-mousling bot'.....as long as I'm putting my 'wish list' out there!!! mwah-hah-hah!)

Hey, it NEVER hurts to 'ask???'

Slishfully,
Sgt DWW-btod aka pondman1955/aka David (and yes, I've cobbled together my OWN 'mousebot'...well two versions...and am working on modifying a set of the space mouslings as SPACE PIRATE 'mouslings'.....one has cyber-eye, new raygun and sword....the female has a new gun and 'hook' hand...the one with rifle is wearing a ski cap....(ala 'Jayne' in FIREFLY....'a man wears a hat like that, isn't afraid of nothing!!!!'

Until Reaper gets going with this, Ground Zero Games makes some ship crew minis.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

Yeah, they're better than nothing, but they aren't very good. Nowhere near as detailed as Reaper's. Plus, they're 25mm, not 28mm, so they can't be used with anyone else's stuff.

I totally agree. I like the Chronoscope SF figures that have been done so far, but I would love to see some "classic" SF figures like that. ST:TOS era stuff (although not necessarily not-ST stiff). I'd be all over anything like that.

So, I didn't see a general topic for suggestion minis (outside of the fantasy one), and I figure I would make a one about some that me and some friends were talking about.

Looking around online, we found a disturbing lack of Firefighter miniatures, and emergency services (Police, Paramedics, Firefighters) minis in general (and S.W.A.T. minis). I would think that would be more common for modern-rpgs and such. Another thing I was also puzzled to find a lack of, were luchador minis. Granted, you have the El Diablo mini, and it's a nice figure, but Luchadors are so varied in terms of design that I think there should be more.

Also, I love the mouseling minis, and I think there should be more and general. Like EMS mouslings, and luchador mouslings.

And I thought I had more to say, but I apparently, don't. I don't expect my suggestions to be taken seriously, but I felt like I should, at least, put the ideas out there. Sorry if there was a thread for this already, but I didn't see one.

Gangs of New York models. They would fit into other eras as well. I'd love to see Bill the Butcher in pewter.
