    Those seem lovely, but they are metal, right? 

    Apparently Wargames Atlantic has some plastic Conquistadores and Aztecs in the pipeline, but no idea about their quality or release schedule. 

     

    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. 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

    and this one comes with a rider and saddle already

    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.

    Squigs by GW look sorta, kinda like that.

     

    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. 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.

  7. 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.

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
