I agree with SaintRigger (way back in the first page).

SciFi minis are tough to find in general, and generics are even harder. Weird stuff can be found or substituted for, but the generic stuff would be great.

 

The minis don't even have to be good quality. Usually, the generic civis are NPCs "in the way" or other people you should save, etc. For you centerpiece, you could always use some 40k bit or an old VOID fig, but who wants to pay through the nose for some background; I'm not Warner Brothers here, just a dork in a garage.

Hi. I was wondering if anyone at Reaper realizes that A Princess of Mars and Gods of Mars are no longer in copyright? That means John Carter, Tars Tarkis, Dejah Thoris and all the rest are freely available: all in the public domain. I would dearly love to see some Barsoomian sculpts from Reaper. Man, would that be cool!

 

 

Bronzeage currently has a beautiful Barsoom range.

 

Edit - this isn't to say we can't use more, and some of the fantasy figures would fit in, actually - BUT - there are at least two existing comapnies doing them

Went to the Bronzeage site and was impressed: is that REALLY bronze casting? No wonder they're so expensive! Anyway, who's the other mini manufacturer making Barsoomian minis?

Hehe - no they aren't bronze. ;) They usually come in packages with multiple figures and are actually quite inexpensive compared to the other mfg companies. I bought a batch of pirate girls for about $3 a figure.

 

The martians are actually really close to 54mm - so $12 isn't bad at all.

 

 

Parroom station is the other company that makes them.

I'm sure some or all of these have been listed already, but just for my own wishes:

 

Generic SciFi crew and officers (male and female) in futuristic uniforms

 

Generic SciFi crew and officers (male and female) in futuristic space suits

 

Generic SciFi civilians (male and female) in buisness and casual attire

 

(Semi)Generic aliens to match the non-human Traveller(tm) races. Aslam (feline alien), Droyne (reptillian alien), K'kree (centaur aliens), Hivers (insect aliens), Vargr (canine aliens) would all be nice to see. (These are all probably common enough SciFi sterotypes to avoid copywrite infringment and to be used in other settings, too.)
