Newbie (1/8)



  1. I'll probably edit this several times, so bear with me. First, stuff I'm just reiterating from other people (sometimes with added commentary) More of the new, larger-scale giants as noted above (stone, cloud, storm) but also more varieties of previously produced (esp. hill) especially agree more humanoid casters, especially shaman types, everything from kobolds to ogres, trolls, giants More female humanoids, from kobolds to giants, and in more active roles, as in a female ogre who isn't just there to be the mate of the chief or whatever, but looks like she'd bash your head in Lots of people said giant eagles. YES, giant eagles! Preferably without mounts. Yuan-Ti/Naga/serpentfolk More halflings in general but especially adventurer types And then the stuff that I personally really want: More like the KS2 Mountain Troll--same style, different poses, armaments (perfect for new D&D Middle-earth game) More ogres like in KS3 (perfect for new D&D Middle-earth game as hill trolls) More orcs like KS3 (same) More giant spiders Half-ogres More barrow wardens More giant treemen
  2. Sure there's licensed stuff--licensed, overpriced styrene GW stuff that looks like Peter Jackson, and licensed, overpriced Mithril stuff that looks like it was designed in the early eighties (because it was designed in the early 80s). Also, people in licensed-setting RPGs don't generally tend to play the main characters from that setting. I'm sure that ridiculing my question makes you feel good, but: how does that help Reaper sell their existing line now or develop their line on the future? How does your reply answer my question?
  3. As you are probably already aware, there is an official Middle-earth D&D 5e setting being released this Summer by Cubicle 7. This will no doubt create strong demand for figures for people's campaigns. I've noticed there are numerous figures already in production that will adapt well. The orcs in KS3, the Mountain Troll in KS2 (a tad Jackson-esque, but perfect for a big Olog-Hai or the like: MORE OF THESE!), the ogres in KS3 (perfect Tom, Bert, and William-MORE PLEASE!), the Balor from KS2 makes a passable Balrog (assuming Balrogs have wings), many dwarves, etc. This is only natural, as D&D is substantially derivative of Tolkien and Reaper's choice of subject matter is substantially derivative of D&D. Now obviously, lacking a license, nothing would be official, and trademarked names would be verboten. However, with this firmly in mind, my question is this: a) which figures already in production do you think work best as Middle-earth characters, monsters, etc., and b) what would you like to see to fill out the traditional Middle-earth bestiary in any potential KS4 or LE KS, bearing in mind that as the actual number of different species of monsters will be more limited, a variety of weaponry, poses, armour, sexes, and the like will be important
  4. LOL... I was not a fan and kind of ignored 4E in favour of Pathfinder.
  5. And, sorry, forgot: More Cthulhu Mythos. The original HPL stuff is all public domain now. And I love it, and the numbers on the KS1 Cthulhu and KS2 Masha'af should bear me out when I say I am not the only one.
  6. Hopefully noone has pointed this out before, but a good way to handle the size discrepancy for giants between Pathfinder and 5E is to base them on a large base, place a magnet at the center of the base, underneath, invert a huge base, place another magnet at the centre of it as well, and simply add it when needed for 5E. Not much of an issue for the new Hill Giants, but will enable you to switch back and forth between editions with just one figure for Stone, Fire, and Frost.
  7. More female monstrous humanoids across all lines. More female figures that are not just T&A with feet. More lizardmen (lots more lizardmen, especially Gene Van Horne lizardmen) Stormwing, to fill out the Chromatics. Narthrax is not a Blue. Yes, he can be painted blue. But he isn't. Different-sized Chromatics, especially large and gargantuan. Giants that are Huge ( Hill Giants accomplished!), as the new Hill Giants make your Fire and Frost Giants look like well-dressed ogres. Hobgoblins. Preferably the old-school Japanese ones. More half-orcs across all lines: female, male, different classes. None of my players prefer Bones to pewter for PC figures, so less PC figures (as a percentage of KS3). The Moor Troll ( the only Reaper Troll that looks like a proper Poul Anderson D&D Troll) In general, more larger figures that are native to the Bones material.
