Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

I'd like to see more modular minis: a sprue of various torsos, limbs, heads, and items.  

 

Modular sprues would be awesome and I would like a sprue of adventuring items in Bones. They have a few metal ones that have you know, back packs, camp fire stuff, instruments etc. I would like that but in Bones, the only sprues for Bones seem to be weapons and shields.

The prices commanded for the Huge Fire Elemental currently are between $17 - $26 on the secondary market. Suggesting that an adequate and competitive price point could be found for a Bones huge fire elemental in the current market. I am aware of no other huge fire elemental on the market that is made of translucent plastic. So I would love it if there was another option for a huge fire elemental. 

 

 

As a follow up to this one, Paizo/WIzkids released a huge fire lord as a incentive mini in there last pre-painted set (Maze of Death). Thou it commands the same dollars as the others ($20 to $30). So a huge Bones fire (or any) elemental would still make sense!

I second this! Non-weapon accessories would be perfect for Bones. Campfires in clear would be great. Nolzur's has one but it's kinda tiny.

Folded wings. 

 

I'm pretty sure I've requested it before, but folded wings of various sorts would be fantastic. Bat/dragon wings, feathered wings, insect wings, all of them. Spread wings just take up so much room!

I second a few ideas presented already:

 

1. People in suits/contemporary clothing.  I would argue for unarmed as Reaper already provides the sprues to arm them.  This provides figures for many games ranging in genre and style.

 

2. Dwarven bear cavalry.  Ursula was done but a few more would be great.

 

3. More cavalry overall.  A suggestion that has come up numerous times is to try making riders/mounts separate.  This opens up many more options including exotic mounts.

 

4. More beasts of burden (including wagons).  To repeat above, removeable cargo adds to options.

 

5. More hobgoblins.  Bones 3 was good, but more is always better.

#1: At the very least, if you absolutely positively MUST put a pistol into the hand of a nun or a detective or a janitor, then please, PLEASE have it in a hand held away from the body.  When a hand is away from the body, it's not too hard for me to trim out a gun and pretend that so-and-so is just holding a fist aloft (or if I'm very careful, or use a little green-stuff, I sometimes can even manage a POINTING gesture), or do a hand-swap to have a character holding a book or some other item that doesn't pose an immediate threat.  When I run superheroic and horror games where I need "innocent bystanders," I can have any number of apparently UNARMED miniatures on the table -- and then as a GM narrate that, yes, this fellow has pulled out a GUN or a KNIFE -- and I won't get any pushback from the players.  But if a mini is standing there, brandishing a gun or a sword, no matter how many times I say, "ignore the weapon! he doesn't really have one!" the players seem to have trouble un-seeing that particular detail.

 

Toward that end, I could probably use a few more right and left hands holding non-weapon items.  Bones would be nice, but I'd settle for paying the extra for pewter (I've done it before) if I could get a decent selection.  Open hand (palm out, pointing, etc.), holding a book, holding a tool, holding a "scanner," holding a cell phone or other gizmo ... just any number of things that don't say, "SHOOT ME!  I'M A THREAT!" from the get-go.

 

#3: Ditto on this.  As it so happens, I was just commenting on Facebook that we're in a "Kingmaker" campaign that involves lots of overland travel.  The PCs acquired some riding horses, and the paladin is a long way off from acquiring his summonable warhorse.  #77355 (Count Lorenth) is the only horse-mounted Bonesium mini I've seen so far, but it's kind of over-the-top for a mere "riding horse."  (This is definitely a WAR-horse.)  Sure, I could take Silverhorn and clip off the horn for a horse (as I've done a few times with #77029 AND #2064) but then I have to work from scratch to add the saddle and tack.

 

I think the horse from #14252, #14253, #14255 (Khamsin Raider, Lancer, Archer) would make a great basic riding horse.  (As for the rider ... well, I suppose anything would do, just as long as I can swap it out with another rider.)  #14213 "Lady Devona" would be nice for a fancier option that should be fun to paint up.

 

#4: Am I just mis-remembering, or at some point wasn't there a sneak preview of a Bonesium wagon with pumpkins in it?  I think I might have seen a photo of a two-wheeled cart being pulled by a pig, in the company of some halflings, as some sort of "sneak preview" picture in greenstuff ... but I don't think I ever saw it actually come up as a stretch goal in the Kickstarter?  (I guess it was just a goal we didn't reach?)  Anyway, having a wagon full of PUMPKINS seems a little overly-specialized (unless the pumpkins are removable, in which case I'm fine with it), but even then, it would be something I could start converting from.  I just ended up making a wagon this weekend from craft wood and hydrocal castings, and now I'm worried it'll break (in storage or in use).  Nice, durable Bonesium would hold up a lot better.

It's in Bones KS IV. part of the Core Set and also separate in a civilian pack.

 

I would like to see bats hanging upside down.

Large bats in flight and also crawling on the ground.

A dragon in a relaxed pose. Perhaps the "loaf" pose that cats take. Perhaps made to look like the dragon is having a conversation with something below its nose. A nice, big dragon too. ^_^

Folded wings may be nice for the angels as much as for the dragons.

I want every kind of wing folded up. Folded wings take up so much less space and are less prone to being knocked over and starting a domino effect on the battlefield.

I am ten thousand percent behind this idea! Especially if they're dressed the way the frost giant warriors from KS4 are dressed.

More Hobgoblins - The four from Bones 3 are great and currently in use in my 5e campaign, we need more!

More Cloud and Storm Giants - Would also like to see a titan sized giant or two as well.

More Chronoscope aliens and sci fi goodness - Just started getting into Starfinder, so some bug aliens, big lizards, and ratlings would be great.

Space ships - To scale to use for Starfinder ship battles.

Scenics - Excited for the ones coming in Bones 4, want more!
