White Whale Miniature.

My basement is a scary place, somewhere down there is a complete set of the Fineous Fingers miniatures too.

 

As one of the people who helped to fill that basement, let me just say that I approve of that message. :rolleyes:

 

(And I've got a set of Fineous Fingers minis somewhere in my own scary basement, too.)

I've always wanted to complete my collection of Dragonlance figures. (I've got 3 or 4, and I'm really torn about whether or not to strip my Laurana mini to repaint her, as she was one of the first minis I painted)

I'm sure I can get them on ebay, but I'm always so hesitant to buy stuff there.

For me lately, it has become less and less about minis that I can't find, and more about, "so, just how much am I willing to fork over it get it?" While I've tracked down most of the things that I want (and am working on second copies of some things), there are two that seem to keep slipping through my hands lately, tho. Both are Ral Parthas; the 11-series AD&D Erinye demoness (thought I had that one taken care of, then it turned out to be a Rawcliff copy when it arrived), and Shadamehr Encounters Baakesh Va (while the recast parts are all available from Dark Sword, I want an original).

 

Good luck to everyone in their searches.

Don't think of it that way; it's an adventure waiting to happen... :rolleyes:

I guess you could say mine is RCon I Sophie. That is the only RCON Sophie I don't have.

Interesting topic. I just went to my FLGS yesterday after work. I should have printed this out and seen if he had any of these. Pat has quite a few old minis sitting around on the shelves. I did look for the Shire Dragon and the Psion Hunters. He had plenty of Psion impalers but no hunters. I'll keep a look out for you all the next time I go.

Thanks for the complement. I just thought sharing some stories about what people missed out on or couldn't find would be interesting. One day I hope to turn my greens into pewter and am looking for ideas for models.

 

Cheers.

Mine was the Ral Partha Adventurers pack 11-012. The male halfling was lost ages ago and I started looking to replace it well after partha was gone...

 

Ali stepped in and sold me one that had lost it's sling... and then another stroke of luck: Gus called in a favor and gave an unopened blister to me as a gift. I still haven't been able to open that one.... it's the silly collector in me ::D:

The set of male and female Frost Giants from Grenadier's Dragon Lords Giants Club...

 

The female giant is one of my favorite old miniatures that I still have, but the blade of her spear snapped off, and I've lost the antlers she's wearing on her head... :down:

 

I'd also like to find the class sets from the old TSR AD&D miniatures - I only have one piece left from the Monks, Bards & Thieves set, and two from the Magic Users & Illusionists set.

 

Those old TSR sets were some of the first minis I ever painted, using Testors' hobby enamels, hobby brushes and sharpened toothpicks... ye Gods my skills sucked back then, but I cherish those minis, lol ::D:

I have all the Elfquest miniatures somewhere, buried in yet another box in the basement. There were done by Ral Partha.

 

 

*jealous*

 

I've been trying to get ahold of those for ages.

I'd love to finish off my FASA Trek miniatures. I've only got one klingon ship.

 

Also, WEG Star Wars Storm Skimmer.

Looks like what I really need to do is an inventory of the miniatures in the basement. :blink:
