Minis we would like to see (Fantasy version) Thread Seven

Recommended Posts

Halflings! More Halflings!

 

Those 8 years, small ones have been not popular as PC race due to "The bigger, the better" policy of DnD 3.Xe rules.

 

But in 4e, they are good race to play (even power-gaming-wise, I mean).

 

So I say again, Halflings! More Halflings!

I would echo the call for more halflings. I love them, but I much prefer that Reaper stick with the bare-hairy-footed halfling that Reaper does so well.

More Bathalians please. I see we've got the Bathalian Exarch in the preview pipeline, and it's great. I've also got some of the plastic LE ones, and there's one for Warlord coming too. I've got the pirate Bathalian, but I think down the road we could use two newer poses to replace the older ones. Something more dynamic, like the pirate, maybe with a sword, or magic item option. I'm needing these for an upcoming campaign.

Actual Halflings, not '3/4-lings'...

 

I largely prefer 3/4-lings for 2 reasons. Fist of all, D&D halflings are actually more like 3/4-lings.

 

Also, I found "actual halfling" minis are too small and difficult to paint.

 

I like small creature minis such as familiars sets. But when painting character minis, I prefer slightly bigger minis which I can enjoy painting their faces and details.

Been awhile since i posted in this thread and I perused the postings briefly and didnt see either of my new requests so here goes...

A Werebat

A Wyrm (in my book a flightless dragon somewhat serpentine in app.) Nothing too monstrous in size something in the $20-$30 range would be sweet!

* Draconic-looking humanoids, 2.5' tall in scale (like d20 kobolds).

* Draconic-looking humanoids with wings, 2.5' tall in scale (like d20 dragonwrought kobolds).

 

The kobolds should be about 2.5' tall with legs bent the way they usually stand. If their legs are all stretched out, they can get to 3.5' to 4', but normal stance has them 2'-2.75'.

Most draconic kobold minis I see are too freaking big.

How about some old-school stuff.

 

Orcs with piggy faces

 

Dungeoneer with long pole for trap-springing

 

Henchpersons with bulging loot bags

 

Torch or lantern-bearer

 

The poor soul who has to make the map of the dungeon whilst avoiding certain death

Something I've been wanting to see for a while is a mounted DHL Templar. Essentially, what I would like to see (and add to my collection ::D: ) is a mounted figure in the same style as DHL 02119, DHL 02178, and DHL 06036. Optional weapons would be really nice (exp, choice between sword or lance)

 

Another thing I'd like to see are more mounted figures in general. What I'd really like to see are some DHL figures that are designed to be mounted, but are packaged on their own so that you can mount them on whatever you like (Reaper's existing horses, dragons, basilisks, etc). I suppose you could always simply buy the people separately from existing DHL models ( like DHL 02346 ), but I'd like to see more variety.

 

Almost forgot. Something else I'd like to see are more accessory packs, but ones with duplicates of a single type of item. For example: An assortment of nothing but swords (with matching scabbards, and either all the same sculpt or different designs), a half dozen matching spears with a weapons rack, multiple items such as lanterns (I really want to see some lanterns. Can't seem to get enough of them), bottles, torches, or dishware, a pack of just daggers, etc. I could certainly continue without end of the number of possibilities. Not that I know how to run a business, but what I think Reaper could do is to take a single sculpt, then case a sprue of 3-4 of them, and then let the customer order however many they want. You would not even have to market them as complete accessory packs, just as bits.

I like these ideas, great for scenery. Extra ballista bolts stacked in a pile would be nice also,

I agree, also would be nice for accessories like swords. In the current selections on weapons there are usually 4 or so swords, but what about a pack of just various broad swords/shorswors/scimitars/axes/spears etc? Also armor, set's of plate, half plate, scale, chain, etc? I would love the large variety for my armory rooms!

I'd like to see Fomorian giants, Ogres, etc. I've got the one that Reaper has, but I think they can do better. Of course, this is prolly a model only I would buy. : (

Not true Josh! As an unabashed monster lover the Fomorian is a favorite of mine too, and yup I have the original as well! I would go for some new giants of the frost and fire variety as well as a first Storm Giant and Titan too pleeease!

You mean I'm not alone in wanting to see more of these great monsters?? I think the one we have is now discontinued, but a new version for us would rock. I don't play D&D but I think the people who do could use this beastie.
