  1. Probably been mentioned before, but here's my vote for several treasure/doo-dad sets.  Things to put on shelves and tables, or to add to existing minis.  Like the current adventurer gear, weapons and musical instrument sets. 


    Armor pieces (Separate bits and armor stands)

    Books and tomes (LOTS of books, papers, scrolls, book stand, podium)

    Magical implements (Crystal ball, mortar and pestle, burner, alchemy gear (in clear?), summoning circle, bottles and jars, piles of components)

    Backpacks and saddle bags (Various backpacks, bags, pouches, wine skins, saddle bags

    Kitchen/Tavern/Feast implements ('nuf said)

    Tools Of The Trade (Tradesmen's tools for carpentry, smithy, etc.)

    Farm set (Plow, hand tools, feed bags, baskets of produce/eggs, chicken coop, rope, saddle and stand, stable bits)

  2. Always going to go for the Mythos critters.  CoC players are paying big bucks for them everywhere else.  Second any 1920's gangsters, flappers, jazz musicians, newspaper boy, basic vehicles (Model A, T and TT in particular).

    Also add in my vote for crab swarms, I've used them before on beach encounters with aquatic Druids.

    The more swarms the better: Flying insects (in clear?), birds, fish, jelly fish, cats (half joke, thinking of the Cat Lord from the AD&D books), etc.

    Alternate mounts: goat, boar, lizard, Unicorn, riding dog,  dog sled team to go with the Artic Explorer?

    Barnyard animals to go with all the fantastic commoners we've got: Goat, chickens, ox, 

    How about a full expansion for a small farm?  Shed, A-frame cottage, stable, out house, watering tough, tools, plow, well, maybe fences with a gate.

    (I just realized, there's no well mini...)

    Casualty minis.  Lots of dead/down options for commoners, adventurers, soldiers/orcs/goblins/kobolds, etc.

    After I suggested the idea on the Bones 5 thread, the idea was brought up on Reaper's Facebook page.


    We need a LEVIATHAN! i.e. a giant monster whale, or sea serpent. Reaper needs it's own Moby Dick.

    If the whale path is chosen, instead of a single massive whale, segments breaching above the water would be a nice idea.

    Same deal with sea serpents. A large head(s) poking out of the water with several tails/tentacles and boom! you got a nasty encounter.


    P.S. Ninjaed! :ph34r:


    With any whales or leviathans, we would need a crew of whalers.  Minis that would work with upcoming pirate ship, usable for either fantasy or Victorian era.

  4. You know, we have all these great kids sets coming up in BONES 5.  Now all we need is the Evil Toy Set (02887).  And you could add a new toy to it that would make everyone happy: the frickin' Pirate Ship.  (Hey, nobody said how big it needed to be, did they? <grin>)

    I'd like a bones Rakshasa . . . Do we already have a Bones Rakshasa? If we don't we really need on . . . A male and a female one . .


    I'ld like to second the Rakshasa. Earlier editions had them with the heads of any kind of animal, not just tigers.  So making a kit that has several types of heads would be REALLY cool.  (Tiger, horse, wolf, boar, bear, elephant, croc, etc.)

    Small Constructs

    Lovcraft monsters 


    Second these, too, espeically the Zoogs!!!  (I would LOVE to drop about 40 Zoogs on the table next time someone steps off the road and into the forest!!! <evil grin>

    And, seriously, some of the more common Lovecraft beasties should be great sellers.  Elder Things, Tcho Tcho men, Men of Leng,  Byakhee, Gnophkeh (the D&D Girallon, but with a horn and tail), etc.  The Call of Cuthulu gaming seems to be really picking up.

  5. Aquatic Swarms (regular fish, jellyfish, etc)


    Julie's Murder of Crows and other flying/bird swarms


    Townfolk's children


    Sprues of adventuring accessories: Backpacks, saddlebags, pouches and bags, tents and lean-to's, camp fire, general equipment piles, hunted/dressed animals, traps, saddles, etc.  (REALLY stressing the backpacks and saddlebags.)

  6. To reinforce a lot of the previous requests:


    Wagons and carts in hard plastic, in the standard sizes and designs that Pathfinder uses.


    Mounts of all kinds, with both saddle (empty) and pack options: Horses and mules, dogs, rats (again, for Pathfinder), donkeys and ponies, riding lizards, insects, etc.  Design them with the idea of being able to put them on a base that's big enough to place a mini next to it on the same base. (IE: A "ride along" base)


    A few more bards with options for instruments.


    Robots and robot kits.


    All the current conversion sets already done in metal (Hats, Creature components, Musical instruments,  Adventuring Accessories , etc.)


    Commoners/farmers/townsfolk and non-combatants for the main races.

  7.   Exactly what I've been begging for, especially since Star Wars is coming out.  Robot "kits", lots of pieces for lots of variations.


      (And a Not-Magnus would be sooooo cool...)



    Retro 50's robots would be awesome! Especially if they were mix and match parts! 3 different heads, bodies, and legs, with an assortment of arms!


    And a NOT Magnus.



      Second any requests for Shadow Run tech/drones/characters, and the bank robbers.  Easily used for Star Wars games.


      REMEMBER: The theme for next year's ORIGINS 2016 is ROBOTS!!!  (Seriously, go look.)

  8. Funny how many other people are begging for dogs, which is exactly what I logged in for.  Specifically, dog sled set, your choice of either Inuit (Eskimo) or Victorian-style, probably the latter would do best for most fantasy games.


    A wagon or two would be nice, but those get large and expensive.


    Also want to second these requests: Dogs, Casualties, Cattle and farm animals, Rural bandits and highway men, Beggars.

  9. I'd love to see some Sci-Fi miniatures.  Heroes, Monsters, Aliens, Robots & Vehicles of all shapes & sizes.  Perhaps some sci-fi game mat dressing as well.


    Perhaps looking at the Eclipse Phase, Numenera/The Strange, Alpha Omega, or ShadowRun universes for ideas.


    I'm still in favor of a robot "kit", with lots of parts that can be assembled to create whatever you want, as needed.  Not sure how that would go over for a Kickstarter add-on, but I'd love it for our own games.

    You know, we could make almost any BONES fig into a Mimic by simply heating it over a candle and pulling pseudopods from random locations on it.  Hmm...


    You're probably not serious about this, but putting Bones plastic over a candle is not a particularly good idea. Potential for nasty fumes.


    I actually was being serious.  I've been doing scratch-building since the early '70's and know to use a well ventilated room as a standard, not as an exception.  All those 1/72 and 1/87th scale antennas were all made from taking a piece of extra sprue and a candle.  Still do it in a very well ventilated room.  (Some of my ex girlfriends might agree there was some brain damage in there somewhere, but I'll guarantee it wasn't from that... <grin>)
