Yep. It's on the table. Not saying when, but we know what to ask for when we're ready to make that step.

I would've thought that'd be expensive. But reasonably priced clear and/or translucent colored plastic spell effects? I'd buy those.
I don't look like Haldir's avatar, either

Now waitaminit!

We get Bones, but the ghost ain't clear or clouded plastic??
Paizo/WizKids/NECA dropped the ball on their Spectre.
Reaper, please rectify this issue.
I want incorporeals that look incorporeal gosh darnit!
I did manage to pick up an old old old Fortress clear resin ghost, It arrived today. :)

Count me in!


Though in the mean time, if they delay in taking that step, one could always make their own mold of a fig and cast it in clear resin - for personal use only, of course. This would have the added benefit of being able to tint it whatever color you wanted...

Though it certainly wouldn't be cheap.
"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)

Having generic "class-based" figures (ie mini with heavy armor holding a longsword & shield, might say fighter) would be great as a clear mini. It would represent a invisible character.

I made a couple slimes and a cube that wasn't that expensive. The problem I had is that some of the surfaces that were on the mold came out cloudy instead of shiny and clear... and the bubbles. millions of tiny bubbles. I think it was the crappy latex mold and mold release I used though. Keep meaning to get a nice RTV and try again.

Picked up Bones ghost to go with my 2 other LE ghosts and Warlord metal one.
Clear plastic would have totally sold me on a handful.
Spectres and haunt need to be in clear plastic or even resin.
CLEAR PLASTICS PLS!!!

Go check out the Reaper Kickstarter. Transparent spell effects are locked in (fire elementals, fire ball, fire wall) and transparent ghosts/ wraiths/ undead are coming up!

 It's the perfect time to put on  your yellow boots and go meandering around the woods looking for...well stuff. In my experience looking for stuff is the best way to find it. -Loim
