Minis we would like to see (Fantasy Version)


Recommended Posts

A big, open can of left-handed, saber-toothed worms. For real.

 

Okay, so there probably isn't a big demand for this, but it is my standard euphemism for problems that not only go beyond norm, but will require quite a few processes and resources to handle/correct. So I would love to sneak it into a game, or just to paint it up. Maybe sneak it into a familiars pack?

 

And they're left-handed because:

1. They don't have hands

2. Everyone would expect an attack from the right-hand...

There still aren't enough disreputable bandit types out there. I'm not talking about sinister-looking rogues or lightly armored archers, of which there are plenty. I mean slovenly fighters wearing shoddy armor, suitable for low-budget caravan guards, bandits, militiamen, or city watchmen from Ankh-Morpork.

 

I've also been looking for some mites: Tiny little sneaks with large heads. Nothing I've seen has impressed me.

 

I don't recall any decent warriors armed with madu and sword.

Wow, I haven't been in here for a while.

 

I'd just like to second some of the other requests: a hippogriff, more Asian-type figures (especially non-samurai), pirates without firearms, half-elementals/genasi.

 

I'd also like to see more monks of all races, preferably with less of an Asian style since that often doesn't suit many fantasy settings. Essentially bare-fisted fighters, male and female (especially female), in nice action poses.

 

Some druids who aren't covered in fur would be nice, also. I don't see why a druid has to dress like a crazy barbarian. Maybe some druids are vegan! :lol: And how about a druid with a scythe or sickle?

Male swashbuckler

 

Two swords, normal pants (not fluffy)....something on the order of 2981 or 3130 only those are both female. And with a more refined appearance than 3452 (Culk has too much of that Conan look going on, even if his pants aren't torn)

so boudica is probably one of my favorite historical female warriors and i've always felt she was greatly underappreciated. so i think it'd be great to see a miniature or figurine of her. she was a bronze age druid priestess of the iceni tribe around the time the roman empire was trying to take over. she was married to the tribe's leader and when he died the romans flogged her, raped her daughters, and took over her tribe. she then lead one of the most successful revolts against the roman empire until finally being defeated.

 

i think a miniature of her by herself in a commanding pose with either a sword or a spear would look awesome, as long as she's not dressed like a roman. they're always painting her with roman clothing, but she wasn't roman. women in the bronze age wore tunics and long skirts and jewelery such as gold bracelets and earrings. she's also popularly depicted as riding in a chariot, which would also be really fun and cool to paint i think.

 

just an idea, i saw a figurine that reminded me of her and got to looking around and realized there were no really good miniatures of boudica

Minotaurs without weapons. I've been looking for a good unarmed minotaur figure for some time and keep coming up with nothing. (The MageKnight minotaur is ok, but I didn't paint it.)

 

And, lest I forget, non-holiday Sophies. I got Pirate Sophie, but for some reason I really don't care for any of the holiday ones. Let's get some other genre based Sophies out there.

I'd love to see figures that could serve as decent 'Aquilonians' along with a fleshing out of some of the other areas of the conan setting. Knights and such in platemail is one thing, but I wouldnt mind seeing more fantasy minis with an 'ancient' style to them, as opposed to looking like either the dark ages or something high medieval... :)

Non-dire size common animals, maybe multi-pose packs? The "rat pack", the "cat pack", etc.

 

It would be cool to have appropriately proportioned critters to use on bases instead of just the overly huge ones currently available. Mice would probably be too small to be able to pull off, but things like smaller birds, dogs, cats and rats should be do-able if you have a sculptor gutsy enough! Sell them in same flavor multi packs, with a few different poses, like laying down, sitting up, preparing to pounce, things like that.

Atlas w/ the world as a seperate bit.

 

Birth of Venus

 

Shifters (Razorclaw and longtooth)... not a werecat or werewolf less animal. More like a hairy rabid elf.

I'm still waiting for a pregnant druid.

 

Pregnant anything really. More "round" minis in general. Sumo wrestlers come to mind.
