  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. That would explain why I didn't recognise it at all, I know like nothing about Skulz. Now that's a neat find.
  8. 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.
  9. 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, loo
  10. 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.
  11. Well dang, maybe we'll get plastic space mutants after all?
  12. 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
  13. https://www.reapermini.com/search/bird/latest/03181 https://www.reapermini.com/search/bird/latest/03797 Both of these would be very nice in light plastic because it'd be easier to put them on stuff. The wings would be easier to attach and cause fewer problems with balance. The vultures would similarily be easier to put onto weaker branches etc.
  14. It'd be great if they made mounted legs somehow so you could have them ride all sorts of weird stuff, so you'd have a use for something like the Bones raptor pack.
  15. Indeed, there's a lot of space for designing games that are based on how medieval and ancient weaponry really worked without trying to turn it into a simulation. Even just plain "properly historically accurate" equipment is a lot more evocative than much of contemporary fantasy.
  16. If they had gone for more of a campy style a box each of mutants, robots and humans would be great for all kinds of silly Masters of the Universe style characters.
  17. Obviously there's going to be a box of space humans. The boring route would be one box of hi-tech humans and one box of ragtag humans, even if those would no doubt be very practical sets for a variety of gaming. Or one box of dudes and one box of ladies. Personally I'm hoping for a box of mixed mutant aliens. That would be handy, particularly if legs and torsos were separate pieces for maximum multi-part madness. I'd also go for a box of robots.
  18. Someone probably should make single-part plastic skeletons. You don't always need skeletons to be superdynamic and if they're basically a chesspiece they should be durable enough. One sprue with like ten varieties with spears and shields, one sprue with hand weapons, then a separate mould for bows and then one for two-handed weapons. I think it could work fairly well. Should be easy to rank up, too.
  19. I do love their bronze age weaponry, and the corroded paintjob.
  20. Oof, my need for a 3rd ed WHFB wood/high elf army is flaring up.
  21. At first I thought it was weird but at this point it's just mystifying that there's no plastic musician bits on the sprue. I would gladly trade away the champion bits for it. Anyway, pretty decent wolfriders. Actually a pretty beefy wolf, got to say. Nice to see they don't have saddles so they'll make for good plastic dire wolves or something. I'm surprised to see that the legs and torsos are old school split. I still really, really want unarmoured goblins, tho. Raggedy and shirtless is the way to go. Elves will likely get mounted knights as well.
  22. Would it be doable to just write the miniature's height from the base to the top of the head on the page for it?
  23. Some unusual dragon variants Cyclopean dragon Elephantine dragon Fat dragon, not as a joke but just a particularly chunky dragon That sort of thing.
  24. Drinking horns and musical horns usually have differing numbers of holes, although I suppose they could be beer funnels that hold a note.
