Earth Elemental figs

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find some varied earth elemental figs for a potential dwarf summoner character I want to roll up someday. He'll specialize in summoning earth-based creatures, especially elementals.

 

Problem is, the smaller-size classes of earth elementals (those of Small and Medium size) are poorly represented by the companies I've seen thus far. I absolutely ADORE the new Reaper earth ele, but he's too big to be a low-level summon. Anyone seen anything Small or Medium sized? I'm not a huge fan of the one Reaper has in the elemental pack.

 

Thanks for any help.

Older minis are usually smaller. There is a set of AD&D elementals (http://www.hacklopedia.com/miniatures/Ral_Partha/Ral_Partha_History.shtml for details) that has an earth elemental in it. I think it's small.

 

There's also this one: http://www.hacklopedia.com/miniatures/earth_elemental.shtml He may be a little large; I can take a measurement if you like.

 

If you can find FF1 (The Fiend) from Citadel's Fiend Factory (http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/wiki/index.php/Fiend_Factory_-_FF), he makes a great earth golem type creature (sorry, I have no pic on my website for that one yet, but maybe I'll dig one up) ::):

Thanks for all the resources, everyone. Definitely a few steps in the right direction. Barring that, I may just go to the beach, gather up a few fistfuls of pebblies, and greenstuff them into small humanoid armatures.

I gotta say (and absolutely no offense meant to anyone here, just sharing my opinion ::): ), when I think of of Dwarf-summoned earth elementals, I kinda picture something more ... hewn, I guess.

 

I think of Dwarfs as master stone workers and the summoning of an earth elemental would (again, in my own imaginings) take on the vision of the summoner. So a Dwarf earth elemental would have crisp lines, maybe a few celtic-knot ornaments and a dwarf-like visage.

 

I think that summoned critters should reflect the race that summons them; so Elf earth elementals would be thin and sinewy, Dwarf blocky but well shaped, Orc very earthen (pile of rocks), human very 'human-statue' like, etc.

 

I have never seen anything like this; had I the skill I would sculpt my own, alas...

Save your greenstuff. Superglue and whiteglue the earth material onto the wireframe.
