Placoderms!

 

I just spent some time at a museum drawing fossils and recreations of little cute ones like this one, which was an antiarch placoderm, a little eight-incher with close-set eyes, almost crab-like spiked front fins, heavy armor at the front, and a wriggly smooth tail at the back.

 

There are also the slightly later giant scary placoderms, like this charmer,, Dunkleosteus, ten meters long.

 

But I think the earlier, smaller ones look neater, and weirder.

Little boy with a VERY large robot.  One might say, an "iron giant."

 

Also: space raccoon, I-am-not-Groot, green assassin girl, striped wrestler-turned-actor, and space thief in trenchcoat (with and without mask).

 

Perhaps even: not-Appleseed minis, not-Bubblegum Crisis minis, or some not-Outlaw Star minis. Manga heroes and heroines, BESM-style.

Wouldn't the colour of said girl be entirely imaginary until one painted her? And shouldn't the surprisingly talented wrestler-turned-actor be scarred, not striped?

It was late, and words are hard.  :;):

It's interesting to contemplate how a creature as large as Dunkleosteus could have survived in the low O2 environment of the warm oceans of the Late Devonian. It's scary looking, but it would almost have to be slow-moving. And then how would it catch its prey?

When Lord of the Rings came out with Hugo Weaving as Elrond, my friends and I jokingly referred to him as "Agent Elrond". I think that that would make a cool Shadowrun type figure so...

 

An elven agent in a suit and diadem-crown wielding a Lord of the Rings-esque sword and a Glock. That looks like Hugo Weaving.

I would like to see a few more terrain pieces that are common to my games.  Gas Pumps would be a great piece of scenery.  In fact any large pieces of fuel depot or refining equipment would be useful.  Gunfights and such at gas stations or refineries are great action scenes, since the whole place is highly flammable and reasonably explosive.

This has probably been mentioned somewhere within the 82 pages but how about some aliens inspired by Mass Effect?  I would love to have some NOT Asari, Krogan, Quarians, Taurians, Salarians, and Geth.  Even a few NOT Volus and Elcor would be nice.  Plus, Reaper inspired creations like NOT Husks, Brutes, Cannibals, Banshees, and Marauders.
