Looking for a few odd minis

Recommended Posts

I've got a new gaming group and they have expressed strong interest in using minis and maps on the table. So I'm looking for figures that fit our characters. We're playing GURPS in a modern alternate universe where magic is real, things are weird, and slightly silly. We've got:

 

-- the genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist

-- the sexy female cat burglar with a cat fetish

-- a dwarf minotaur, with an axe

-- an anthropomorphic cat-man who plays football

-- a teenage witch

-- a caveman

 

And we're all college students.

 

I'm willing to do basic conversions, in fact I already started chopping up 14131: Elsabeth for the cat burglar (she uses a whip) and I pulled Juliet the mage out of my Bones pile to use for the witch.

 

I'm taking suggestions for the rest, looking for Bones to keep it cheap and easy to do conversions. The minotaur and the cat-man are the ones I think I'll have problems with.

The character stands about 4 ft tall, so needs to be smaller than human sized. I may have to find a 25mm figure.

Inarah. I would recommend hasslefree for 1, 2, and 5. Hasslefree has a great selection for modern types. The teenage witch especially.

For a cat-man using Bones, could the body of Sam Ayers with the head of the male lion from the lion couple do?

Look at 15mm ranges as well.

For the cat folks, maybe parts from:

02575_w_1.jpg

02575: Cleo, Weretigress

or

02140_w_1.jpg

02140: Cleo, Weretigress

 

The heads and other parts might be worth using?

 

I know that they are not Bones but neither came up on the search...

 

And this search as well

 Not sure if the scale works, but you might be able to headswap the head from TaleSpinner's cow onto a dwarf mini for the minotaur... Also, Ral Partha/Ironwind Metals has some old minotaurs that were on the smaller side back in the day that might work for a headswap.

 

Edit: Magister Militum's Blood Dawn fantasy line has 15mm minotaurs (item # BMN2) - they stand 22mm to the top of their heads, and they're pretty cheap even after being shipped from the UK, so you might be able to modify the clothing to be more modern or headswap onto a modern body.

That was going to be my suggestion as well.

Wargods of Aegyptus have a fairly extensive "cat people" stock.

You could trim off the bow, model a football on his other hand, & greenstuff a jersey on him & he's a jock.

Weirdly enough, I can think of old HeroClix that match all of them except the minotaur... and he'd be well done with D&D Miniatures' first minotaur in plastic; he was a tad on the short side.

      Is there anyone who might be interested  in a PBP 4e GURPS lite (rules light, no crazy math) portal horror/ mystery modern day adventure.
      1) Gurps 4e is published by Steve Jackson Games, and the free "lite" version of the rules is available online here.
      2) This world is adapted by me from the fiction of Ian Rogers with my own additions.
      3) Character creation rules
      NO MAGIC OR SUPER POWERS or cinematic skills/abilities
      100 points available up to 50 points in disadvantages and 5 quirks as well. If your character concept is disabled, then there's leeway to go over this, but needs discussion with me first
      If you have 4e books or the character creator app, feel free to go for it. Otherwise I will post a list of templates and where they're located that I've vetted to guide you beyond the lite rules.
      A skill at 12/13 is considered professional quality. higher gets you a better ability to handle tough situations and improve chance at a critical. Really high skills might get notoriety (could be good or bad).
      Useful guidance http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?p=369148
      Also this free pdf condensing skills info should be useful
       
      4) This is set in Toronto and Ontario Canada primarily. Your character doesn't need to be from there, you just need to have an idea of what you're doing there, and specifically to start, what you're doing in the PATH specifically (this will be how you are all introduced). After reading about the world basics, you will also need to think about any supernatural/ blacklands experience your character has had... if any, and if/how they were affected by it.
      The World Basics
      I'm hoping to be able to do a few posts a week, but because I'm new to this, and have limited availability it might be slower than I want. I'm unsure about the number of players - this could work with only a few.
      More later. Feel free to ask questions or express interest.
      If you have and use a skill that will allow you to obtain info/ achieve goal to advance plot, that will happen. I won't make people roll until something happens or things end.
       
      This site seems to have a decent character generator. There`s step-by-step at the top of the page, and it auto-calculates. Please print to pdf or printscreen or recopy.  so I can review. If you need a template, please let me know. Please set point maximum to 100 (it defaulted to 300 for me).
       
      Current Characters list:
      1)Magnus Albertson @Dilvish the Deliverer
      2)Sammy @Arkady
      3) Sam Travis @Corsair
      4)TBD @Chaoswolf
      5) Raoul @Colonel Kane
       
      6) Morgan Faustus @Kangaroorex
      There will be a hard cap at 6 players. And maybe only 5 total. We're closing in on being able to start things.

      Long time I did not post a little painted guy :)
      That’s the left over figure from the diorama, so I finally got him paint.

      Okay, I couldn't really resist the silly title that had a touch of alliteration...  Guess it's a thing for me or something.  Anyways, I figured I'd want to do up a long-term WIP thread featuring a themed army that has the goal of being made mostly of Reaper miniatures...  That and hey, I like gnolls and minotaurs, so... Why no!  Not quite certain what the precise theme is just yet, but we'll roll with "spots and stripes are awesome, as is a love for axes and mythology in general" as the starter of it all.  Initially, this army will be made mostly (if not all) with Bones figures, but eventually metal minis will find their way in.  Bones are rather convenient with their pricing, and there is a wide selection on offer!
       
      It's also something to paint other than my various Games Workshop armies (Tau, Catachans, a scattered amount of Space Marines, a few Tyranids (for now), Skaven, as well as (fantasy) Orcs, although I have nowhere near as many greenskins), and my main focus is purely on fun, with fluff to come as things go.  That and I very much so plan on spending a good amount of time on each mini, not just for detail, but to improve my own skills in general.  One could potentially argue that I intend on making these guys more of my "showpieces", which is something I don't mind the thought of at all
       
      I like how @Glitterwolf formats their posts, so...  I'm thiefing parts of it, as it's a nice formatting, and of course provides a reasonable amount of detail for it all, so why not
       
      Pictures were taken with my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) because at the time I didn't quite feel like messing around with my G85 - or something to that effect ~_^
       

      First and foremost, we have double trouble with a handsome hunk, I mean a minotaur who means business!  77012 Gnoll Warrior, 77013 Minotaur, and 77236 Bloodmane.  White bones doesn't quite look appropriate in my eyes as it's "naked", so let's fix that...
       

      ^Both gnolls now have primer on them...  And of course the couple of mold lines I missed are blatantly visible... Not that I mind, it's always nice to find them NOW other than a few hours into things...
       
      I'm planning on going somewhat darker for their fur, hence why the medium-ish grey priming job.
       
      Paint used:
      09108 Brush-on Primer
      09065 Grey Liner
       
      Two parts primer, three parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow.
       

       
      ^Not to be outdone, our fearless minotaur jumps into the fray as well, although somewhat lighter than the gnolls.  Something about how a fox is thinking about going with a more "traditional" medium brown.  Would have used brown liner, but, uhm, don't have that, so grey liner it is.
       
      Paint used:
      09108 Brush-on Primer
      09065 Grey Liner
       
      Three parts primer, two parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow.
       

      ^And since I just had to have him on my last order, here we have most of what I'll call our first leader, or even general of it all, 77376 Minotaur Demon Lord, partially test-fit.  I ran out of time to get the mold lines on the other six parts, but I'll be working on that today.  Goal is to have him assembled today, and quite possibly primered as well.  I'm not quite certain as to precisely what colour I'll be going with on him, but for some reason an almost "aflame" reddish-coppery-orange with hints of brown in it come to mind.

      Finished this guy up as part of my son's Dragon Rampant army I'm buying and painting for him for Christmas this year. Super quick, by my standards - 2 hours, including a bunch of time spent messaging a friend. And yeah, I know things are rough and I missed a bunch of mold lines... I'm trying to paint an army, not a competition piece.  Comments and criticism welcome!
