  1. Dollar General is not a dollar store.. it's kinda like Big Lots. It depends where you are in SoCal. I'm closer to central Cali but I saw a Dollar General out at Fresno. In San Diego I had the best luck finding 1/43 Diecast at Rite-Aid and other general purpose drug stores. They usually have a display on a toy aisle or at the front. Dollar Tree rarely has appropriately sized cars and when they do it tends to be a plastic kinda like tupperware sorta. I picked up a pair of SUVs from an actual Dollar Tree and they're not anywhere near the quality of most diecast. The doors don't open, the wheels a
  2. I'm hoping someone with clout at Reaper sees this. https://www.facebook.com/pigironproductions/posts/962402717186874 They have a big following and the aesthetic is in the ballpark of Reapers' other Sci-Fi troops.. I'm honestly hoping Reaper will buy these guys out.. and I'm not alone. I know it's a long shot but I thought I would post it up and see if it gets any attention.
  3. Coral, cave, lava, crystal, and rubble walls in sections similar to the ones on the Mr Dandy store would be cool. I would just worry that outside of the KS, the prices might get kinda kooky. I would like to see a modular building set too.. similar to the one offered by Escenorama. From all the things I've seen from Bones so far, the vinyl bonesium would work fine for a nice chunky kit like that. (no I'm not saying Reaper should recast Escenorama stuff btw.. but if they looked at those for inspiration it would be pretty obvious what I am talking about.. same 2 pairs of building "bottoms" an
  4. While I do completely and totally agree with this (and ground based drones too as well as drone operators), I would like to point out that some of the things from CAV can be used as drones. It's not a perfect solution but I thought I'd point it out in case you hadn't thought of that.
  5. The police cars are a good call. I use a lot of diecast vehicles and affordable cop cars that are not specific are a little tricky to find. Armoured trucks like a bank truck are even harder to find and are so useful for RPGs in modern era as well as tabletop gaming. Pretty much everything in your list is stuff I'd love to see.
  6. Modern police in regular patrol uniforms and riot gear.
  7. Just watched the Neverending Story with my kids. It occured to me that an elderly couple like the smaller couple in that film or Princess Bride or a few others would be awesome.
  8. This reminds me of the Wolfram and Heart stuff from Angel. Haven't watched that in forever. Some evil business executive stuff would be insanely cool and I'm not sure anyone is doing stuff like "Conference Table with Pentagram" or "Prison Cubicle". Some other ideas came to mind involving elevators to hell and sacrificial receptionist desks and stuff but trying to think of ways to translate that into miniature scenery makes me feel like a bit of a creeper.
  9. A gang of masked bank robbers. Rubber masks (maybe offer 2 heads to choose... rubber clown or animal mask and regular ski mask). Some with bags or duffles of money. The Joker's gang at the beginning of Dark Knight, Banes' gang in Dark Knight rises, the robbers in Heat, Point Break.. etc.. A drone controller. Probably a person kneeling with some sort of datapad or wrist mounted device and some crazy looking goggles over the eyes like the guy in Elysium with the machinegun during the data theft. Robot police. I don't mean cheesy looking 50s' hyrdraulics or steampunk. I mean like the EM
  10. The sacrificial altar thing coming out with the Mythos expansion in Bones 3 is closer to this type of thing.
  11. Not even joking.. I've used it for tokens for games like Mordheim or in D&D if the heroes need to search for treasure. Pulling a sword or potion or something out of there always has my players like "wha?"
  12. Shadowrun type figures... cyberpunk in general. Mass effect type stuff. Robots and tech stuff.. drones and whatnot.. but.. preferably with details. Stuff like the bulldog mech feels very underdetailed and when you compare larger kits for sci-fi to things like giants and dragons, you shouldn't be surprised if you put out a big sci-fi kit with detail that doesn't match the fantasy stuff in quality and people don't buy it. Some of your sci-fi stuff is great but a lot of it is nowhere near as good as your fantasy figures. This usually results in me passing your Chronoscope figures over and
  13. Happy to see this stuff get released but disappointed at the price of Lemures. I've been waiting on these for a while and at $5 a pair I'll have to keep waiting. They don't show up as one or two.. they show up by the dozen. Perhaps I will just have to try my hand at sculpting melted blobby demons :/
  14. Oh yeah.. an Erinyes too. Sooo many Succubi but no Erinyes that I can see. Sure we could just paint an angel up "evil" but we all know that's not really the same thing.
  15. More 3.x prep work turned up some more models that are frustrating to find at all, let alone at a reasonable price (not sure if any of them were mentioned) Troglodytes (the lizardfolk not the cave people that come up on Google) - I've seen some nice sculpts but they are not in abundance. More Derro and Duergar Vargouilles - Easy enough to convert but it'd be nice to be able to buy a clutch of them at once since they tend to swarm. Stirges - I thought I had mentioned this but even if not, a swarm of these would be immensely helpful. Mephits and Imps.
  16. If you're still looking for stuff that fits.. Crooked Dice has a bunch of stuff that has a SW feel. Hasslefree has some not-jedi and a few other things. Heresy has some general sci-fi that could fit. Getting more specific than that, I'd have to go back over the thread but I've been eyeballing stuff from those 3 for SW gaming so hopefully that'll also suit your needs.
  17. Very very much. I would not be opposed to him having a buddy wielding a rapier.
  18. Oh, Giralon (four armed apes). Would really like to see 2 or 3 poses of them and I think they would be great for the core set the same way we had ogres and yetis this time. Salamanders (fiery/spiny half snake types, usually with some kind of polearms) as well if I didn't mention them. I know most people might be like "well you already asked for yuan-ti" but yeah.. Salamanders would be very welcome. Spiders in clear bones to be used as glass, ice, or otherwise transparent spiders. Perhaps a clutch of eggs done in this way too.
  19. Grimlocks Chthonian worms (I want them for Wystes but whatever..) Hobgoblins in more traditional armor Beastmen Mongrelmen any pirate models that haven't been done in Bones yet and the Dark Maiden (with the ship not the weird pieces of wood) Winged hydra or 3-headed dragon.. either way (it's for a pre-made module for DnD) Umber Hulk Megaraptor pack properly sized Cloaker more Mind Flayers Scorpion Men (scorrow) Warforged adventurers more Golems (preferably variations of the more common ones in case we need 2 stone golems at a time etc) scoundrel type classes (bards, rogues, etc)
  20. Tech effects for transparent bonesium Hacking (infinity) http://belloflostsouls.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/hacker1.png Force Shields http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2015/3/23/698270_md-Force%20Field,%20Object%20Source%20Lighting,%20Riptide,%20Tau.jpg Energy Barriers http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4ENYfq4hJ1I/UefcwWCo7wI/AAAAAAAACeI/Q46Wv_usPao/s1600/Tau+Aegis.jpg
  21. Sorry for the thread necro but I'm in a position where 3 kickstarters, costing me in excess of $440 combined are all past the dates they claimed they would deliver by. 2 of them have major communication issues and the third is simply skirting around the question of actual deliveries. I have informed all 3 of them that I desire a refund along with notice that I will seek a chargeback if I don't hear back in a reasonable amount of time. I would like to know if anyone has experiences since the last posting with recouping losses. I don't think all of these were through Amazon payments, but
  22. Sorry if these are repeats.. Manticore Efreeti Flame Salamander (big snake men) Yuan-Ti types Also.. I like the Battleguard Golem.. it's got a Warforged thing going on.. would like to see more of that and a clockwork dog along the lines of an Iron Defender. (if people are feeling overly pedantic, assume that anything DnD has the obligatory "not" in front of it)
  23. I agree on this for the bits. A few of these types of things can be found in the dungeon scenery sets for Bones 2.. but I would love to see things to flesh out a dungeon. I'm personally working on creating a set to play Heroquest with and running down candlesticks and books and treasure chests (I have the one from Bones 1) is a pain. On that note.. Open and Closed Doors markers for wooden, metal, stone, and barred style doors is on my wishlist.
  24. While looking for some stand in models for Heroquest.. I decided I'd like to have an actual model for Sir Ragnar.. who is a knight that has been taken captive. While I did find some semi-unarmed knightly figures.. none of them actually look like prisoners. So.. I thought I would request a few similarly themed models for other such situations. Knight captive Knight defeated (not killed.. but bested) Drunken Knight Disarmed Knight I would also love to see this guy http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/plate/sku-down/02813#detail/02813_G and http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/d
  25. Spelljammer type stuff would be cool or do you mean futuristic fantasy space stuff (Warlord of Mars type thing)?
