Minis we would like to see

I wouldn't mind seeing cute orcs of both genders, like those found in the art of some more modern games.  But that's not what I was asking for.

 

What I object to is the depiction of female orcs as a simple binary: either sexpots or grotesque jokes, and if you object to the grotesque joke it is assumed you want the sexpot and vice versa.

 

Female orcs ought to be capable of being depicted -- as male orcs generally are -- as capable, dangerous, scary tough warriors.  Serious opponents, in other words.

 

 

My all time favorite female orc is the one from the Sensible Shoes Kickstarter - swaggering, axe on shoulder - large and in charge. I love that figure.

 

Reaper also has a female orc pirate that is pretty good.

 

But, at heart, I think that female orcs should be neither sexpots nor grotesques - I want to see some that look like female body builders - warriors, and just as hard as their male counterparts.

 

Though... I am reminded of a She Hulk cover, with She Hulk in a bikini, painted by Julie Bell - and the complaint someone gave that no one could be built like that... only to find out that Julie Bell had used a photograph of herself as the model, and, yes, she is built like that. (Her husband, Boris Vallejo, is just as bad... dammit! fantasy artists are supposed to be skinny dweebs! They should not look like barbarians from the cover of Conan! ::D: )

 

I would love to see more more defined female orcs as well. (I would link to a certain Elfwood image... but Elfwood seems to have gone away. ::(: )

Dark heaven legends:

hippogryph- any pose really

Ninetailed fox- sitting pose with tails fanned out

chronoscope:

Queen of hearts - without rediculous big head

Snow white - biting into Apple

 

If any of the above exist already I apologize and also please take my money. I love the Chronoscope stuff with the Wizard of Oz and would love to see similar things with Wonderland (I ordered Alice already).

 

So far I have Reaper minis only. They are by far my favourite in selection so please keep the great stuff coming!

I'd like to see the Hellborn (Tiefling) selection filled out a little more.  I think we have a Rogue(F), Wizard(M), 2xSorceress(F), Paladin(M), and Warrior(F).  There's obviously a lot of classes and genders we could use.

 

Likewise, we have a handful of Half Dragons (Dragonborn) figures, (two males and a female IIRC, all fighter types).  We could use some more variety in classes, here too.

  • kobolds, especially rogues and wizards
  • hobgoblins, especially shamans/druids/witches
  • dragon-people, especially spellcasters
  • orcs and goblins riding wolves and swine
  • dwarves, halflings and gnomes riding dogs and ponies
  • knight or wizard riding a giant eagle
  • wizard/witch/etc riding a dragon
  • centaurs, especially knights and spellcasters
  • monks and martial artists in general
  • more hirelings and other not-quite-adventurers, like torchbearers, squires, heralds, and civilian scouts
  • more rat-people (not necessarily wererats)
  • relatively larger mouslings, more or less dwarf-sized (they could be chibi mouslings - but if they were, could we tell the difference?)
  • Final Fantasy-style mages, dragoons, and chocobo-riding knights
  • duck people (more like the Glorantha/Runequest ducks than the Disney ducks)
  • different dog breeds (and maybe a Bones sprue of smaller breeds)
  • undead versions of animals like wolves, horses, bears, big cats, giant bats, and giant ravens (again, maybe smaller skeletal animals could fit on a sprue)
  • dinosaurs that could be used as familiars or companions, like velociraptors, deinonychus, or immature versions of bigger dinos like triceratops or t.rex
  • different sizes of mimics, which aren't necessarily disguised as treasure chests
  • standalone furnishings that could also be used as bases or terrain, like crates, altars, pillars, or tree stumps
  • huge monsters or animals (like dragons, dinosaurs, elephants, treants, or elementals) with flat/clear spaces on their backs so that they can be used as bases or terrain
  • clockwork automatons (not necessarily steampunk, more like the Dwemer machines in Skyrim)
  • sci-fi/fantasy and cyberpunk/fantasy characters - with Starfinder coming out soon, I expect there will be more demand in this sector shortly
  • dullahan (with or without its mount)
  • redcaps, quicklings, and similar evil fey creatures

Slender Man could be interesting. 

I'm really liking the new Space Marine Mouselings... and I find myself wondering precisely who they would mix it up with on the battlefield.

Mouseling space orks?

No. 

Noooooooo. 

 

Pigling space orccs. 

 

Spelled with two "cc"s  for the same reason Caeke is spelled with two "ee"s.

These two bullet points need to be combined. 

 

Mimics need to be sold two to a blister. Disguised form paired with attack form. So a plain chest that matches the existing  mocking beast needs to happen. Then gtrmp's list of plain items could all use a counterpart mocking beast (mimic) form. 

 

Pair them in blisters.

female half orc, tieflings both sexes, and sea familiars

I'm up for more female half-orcs, but is there something specific you are looking for?  There are already a female half-orc barbarian (03019), paladin (02946), ranger (02708) and wizard (02831) in Reaper's Dark Heaven line.  I'd love to see a rogue, cleric and even some generic fighters.  Treiflings are even more underrepresented than the half-orcs so I'd love more of them in any class.   There are at least two packs of aquatic familiars (03612 and 02948) already, though.  Was there something else you were hoping for?

More fully clothed cat ladies.

 

I can count the number of such available from Reaper on less than one full hand; all of the rest are...not well suited for portraying player characters. :unsure:

 

Huzzah!

I would like to see tribal Gnolls armed with short broad bladed spears (like from the classic TV series Shaka Zulu) and wearing simple Kilts, or Toga like clothing. No armour, just fur and cloth and maybe some beads or necklaces and pouches for decoration.

To expand on Redambrosia's request, I'd like to see a few more whimsical dragons. Fey dragons with butterfly looking wings or something with multiple pairs of wings, like a bees fore and hind wings.

Not asking for silly looking dragons, but some outside of the box thinking when it comes to design.

 

Such as the paintings by Dragon Lady Art Studio? Her style is very often butterfly+dragon, and her non-insect dragons are somewhat fey.
