  1. This is the best thing ever!
  2. I'm with Soundwave on the Amazon women. Would love some of those. I've been on a quest for female minis of black women. Yes, I know I can paint a mini with any skin tone I want. But 90% of the female figures out there have long straight hair. Where are the minis of women with afros, dreads, natural tight curls, rows, twists - the hairstyles of women with Black hair? I wouldn't mind seeing some long-haired females with practical hair, either. If you're going into battle you're not going to want your hair getting stuck to your mouth or flying into your eyes. How about some braids, ponytails, short hair?
  3. Thanks to everyone for the feedback. I'm hoping to get back into painting again someday, and didn't want to discover that my significant investment in MSP paints had all been ruined just because I couldn't afford a heated unit.
  4. Sorry about hijacking the thread earlier. On the actual topic of Pathfinder minis, I so desperately want to play a vanara monk, but there are no miniatures! The charau-ka just don't quite cut it. But I suppose there are no Adventure Paths with a vanara monk (or any other vanara) NPC on which to base a figure. Also, I agree with whomever mentioned the female tiefling artwork from the Advanced Race Guide. I love that artwork and would love to see someone recreate it in three dimensions.
  5. Still hoping for a riding dog with a saddle... ... and an elk with a saddle, so my elves can have that Thranduil look...
  6. I had to put my paints in storage a couple of years ago. Unfortunately the storage unit is not climate controlled. Does anyone know if the paints would still be good/usable after being kept at widely fluctuating temperatures? It has occasionally been below freezing during the winters, but usually around the 40-45 F mark. Summer can get up into the 90s at times. I could ask the same about my minis. Does being kept in the heat/cold do any harm to them?
  7. The ladies do seem to be carrying less gear than the men, I agree. Which, based on my own experience as a female, doesn't seem right. My messenger bag always has much more stuff in it than my husband's backpack. I'd also like to see some female casters who aren't wearing an ankle-length dress. That doesn't seem very practical for adventuring. Neither do the ankle-length robes many of the male wizard figures are wearing. And Gandalf notwithstanding, pointy hats are so passe'.
  8. Could we please have some spellcaster types who are: Not carrying a huge magic staff with a giant crystal on the top (or at least make the staff an add-on, so the purchaser can choose not to attach it) Not carrying a wand or rod (or make the wand/rod a detachable piece that can be left off) Not carrying a spellbook (or or make the book a detachable piece that can be left off) Wearing ordinary clothes, not robes; and/or wearing light armor Armed with simple weapons (daggers, crossbows, the option to add a spear or quarterstaff) Hands in spellcasting gestures, perhaps even holding some small item that could be interpreted as a spell component/focus, or reaching into a component pouch to get something. A set of figures that come with a selection of optional hands to add would be awesome, so the figure could be customized to the player's preference without having to know how to graft on hands from other figures / remove items / resculpt hands. Thank you for your consideration.
  9. Since I've been playing a lot of Dragon Age: Inquisition recently - a beardless male dwarf. Some Hellborn female figures that aren't showing so much exposed cleavage/midriff/thigh.
  10. I guess I've been reading too much Clark Ashton Smith lately. I'd really like to see some minis that would be appropriate for a Hyborean Age or Zothique setting. If they looked like characters who walked out of one of the Schwarzenegger 'Conan' movies, that's what I'm aiming at. I know Reaper's done tons of Conan-esque barbarian figures, but I'm looking for something to populate the world other than big muscley fighters with enormous swords and babes in chainmail bikinis. I'd like to see some wizards and priestesses with crazy headgear that doesn't look like anything historical, warriors in sandals instead of furry boots, armor that doesn't look like medieval plate. Conan mixed with a little bit of Flash Gordon, perhaps. Does that description make sense to anyone besides me?
  11. Yes, please! I've wanted one for years. Actually, a whole set of Journey to the West characters would be fantastic. With multiple versions of Monkey - flying on a cloud, wielding his staff, in his iconic pose scouting for trouble with his leg hooked around the staff... Plus some Chinese-style demons for him to fight. If you need reference materials, I have a huge collection. (wink wink)
  12. What a handsome group! I like your color choices. I'm painting three figures for our gaming group's new campaign, and I can only dream that mine will turn out as well.
  13. I've always thought this guy would make a good halfling paladin: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/dobbin/latest/02531 This guy could too, if you like your halfling paladin a bit more rugged: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/halfling/latest/14047 I concur with Doug Sundseth's hands suggestion. I'm sure I've asked for this long ago, but a bigger variety of riding animals would be nice. A ram with a saddle other than the rearing one that comes with the dwarf king. Maybe a boar with a saddle. A stag, as Slendertroll mentioned. A halfling riding dog. An axebeak with a saddle pad. That leads me to another thought: How about some spare legs for making our own custom mounted figures?
  14. I'd love to see some 'Arabian Nights' type of figures, inspired by movies like The Thief of Baghdad (both versions) and The Golden Voyage of Sinbad. I'd recommend taking a look at Arabian Nights illustrations by Edmund Dulac for some inspiration. I'd also be happy to see something inspired by the cultures of India and Southeast Asia. Some Balinese dancers, or figures inspired by illustrations from the Ramayana, for example. Wow, I'm getting some funky line wrapping. It appears that the forum programming doesn't like the antique version of Internet Explorer my employer provides.
  15. Prepainted plastic stuff would be good too. Our group loves dungeon decor, but we don't want to paint it. One of my gaming buddies has an enormous collection of every kind of prop he can get his hands on, like the Wizkids and Hero Quest pieces, but there's always stuff that's disproportionately large for 28mm, or it comes on click bases that take up too much space on the gaming mat. We also buy props for Christmas villages and that sort of thing, but a lot of those are too big, and everything tends to come covered in fake snow. It would be great if Reaper made stuff that was compatible with their minis and usable on either square or hex mats.
