  1. These have just been put up for preorder on their site. I haven't bought any WA miniatures but I haven't heard anything at all about them being bad value for the money.
  2. I would like to see more mounted models in general. They don't have to include a horse or other mount, actually, it'd just be nice to have riding miniatures available that you could put on stuff yourself. Wizards, vampires, wraiths, orcs... It'd be very useful. Reaper makes a lot of monsters but not a lot of models to ride them which seems like a clear niche to fill.
  3. I'd like to see more demons in a similar style and size as https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/02532 and https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/03037 a bat demon with a spiked mace, maybe, there's a lot of stuff you could do
  4. The nail polish, necklace and the... cufflinks or buttons or whatever they are matching is a nice little detail. Also good work on the denim texture.
  5. Would it be acceptable to also look at dragon-themed armour? There's a certain overlap between the creatures in historical art so you might find something that works.
  6. This one should work well enough, tho you might have to repose the tail and wrestle the wings a little to fit in base contact with others https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/dragon bones/price/89001 and this one comes with a rider and saddle already https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/dragon bones/price/77557 both in the classic GW-style "upright-so-it-fits-on-a-50mm-base" pose edit: woopse, just saw the date. well, hope the project went well for you.
  7. As far as Reaper goes, the mouslings fit the bill. There's a fair amount of just regular animals, too, although a lot of them aren't what you'd call traditionally cute. They're just... animals. Maybe some of the gnomes will do the trick? They're not all explicitly silly but they are gnomes.
  8. I was also going to suggest that. Squigs are less leechlike and a lot more charming but they've got the basic profile down. Depending on how small "small" is the models might be too large, though. The lesser mawes also look like a good option. They've got more limbs but they have less pleasant faces. And who knows, they might be cheaper for you.
  9. Full plastic sets tend to be a lot cheaper, though. 30 Bones spearmen is 60 euro, which is nearly twice as much as an Oathmark box. Bones is great value for ogres and up, individual characters and swarm-style figures but a little iffier for mass infantry from what I've seen.
  10. That would explain why I didn't recognise it at all, I know like nothing about Skulz. Now that's a neat find.
  11. I'm looking through the catalogues on Stuff of Legends and no luck so far. Currently I'm leaning towards it not being a 40k model at all. It just lacks the iconography you'd associate with anything inquisitorial or ecclesiarchal, it isn't cyborged enough to be AM and it's just a tiny dude with a chastity cage tank top. Sure, various inquisitors have had some cyborg cherubs but this is a halfling or shaven dwarf, neither of which fits with the range of aesthetics that Citadel has used since like the mid-90's. Even if it was an obscure 40k ratling, I don't think it would have boots. Too bad the tab is gone.
  12. Are there any symbols on the book? Any idea how old the miniature is or at least how long you've had it? He's kinda 40kish but I don't immediately recognise him nor am I sure he fits exactly with the aesthetic of servitors since like the turn of the millenium. He's not cyborged up enough with quill arms or printer ribcages to fit in with the inquisitorial servitors that were made back in 3rd-4th edition and generally lacks the kind of specific detail they had. If he is a 40k mini then he's probably from the 80's? And/or some kind of special edition? I'm giving it a shot, looking things up, anyway.
  13. The tricky thing with crews would be uniforms, but what I've seen of the setting so far provides every excuse for diverse models of space undies. You just have to quell your burning desire for conformity.
  14. Well dang, maybe we'll get plastic space mutants after all?
  15. https://www.reapermini.com/search/weapons/latest/50025 https://www.reapermini.com/search/weapons/latest/50026 https://www.reapermini.com/search/weapons/latest/14295 and similar weapon packs https://www.reapermini.com/search/weapons would all be great to have in some kind of plastic. Extra weapons are always super useful and there's a decent variety here. Again, making them in a lighter material would be great for practical purposes. I'm not sure whether regular bones or bones black would be the best choice. Regular is cheaper and easier to bend into shape but that might only be relevant for chains and tubing, while guns and swords would benefit more from being made out of a stiffer material. Either way, weapon packs would be appreciated.
