Minis we would like to see (Fantasy Version)


Recommended Posts

More werecreatures. I would love to see weredragons, weretreants, werebeetles.. etc. the more strange the better!!

 

Also, for one of my darker campaings, more torture related items... person on a rack, judas cradle, brazen bull, iron maiden (the device not the band.. although....).... i know its dark, but it REALLY works for the shock factor in an older game i am planning on running again.

 

other than that, the hands and hair and more shields to choose from.

Torture chamber bits would add some very nice atmosphere to certain games - I wholeheartedly agree with the above post. I think several tables laid out with various medieval torture implements would be a good addition to the list, including chastity belts, hooks, cutting tools, and my personal 'favorite', The Pear of Anguish.

 

I'd also sell my left nut for a werebeetle or five.

I was watching the Rankin-Bass animated "Return of the King" cartoon, and I was struck at the look of the orcs, particularly in the "Where There's A Whip, There's A Way" sequence. No one has ever done orcs or goblins like that. I wouldn't mind seeing them in 28mm...

I'd love to see some 'Arabian Nights' type of figures, inspired by movies like The Thief of Baghdad (both versions) and The Golden Voyage of Sinbad. I'd recommend taking a look at Arabian Nights illustrations by Edmund Dulac for some inspiration.

 

I'd also be happy to see something inspired by the cultures of India and Southeast Asia. Some Balinese dancers, or figures inspired by illustrations from the Ramayana, for example.

 

Wow, I'm getting some funky line wrapping. It appears that the forum programming doesn't like the antique version of Internet Explorer my employer provides.

Well I would love to see more miniatures offered for both genders for the "other" fantasy races that have been emerging over the past 20 years. Dragonborn, Tieflings (fiendish touches), Aasimar/Deva (celestial touches), Shifters (humans with cat or wolf touches), Genasi (characters with elemental aspects). All of these things turn up in DnD and its derivatives now along with still others like Tengu and so on.

 

I'd love to see more pirates of both genders that do not have guns.

 

I'd love to see humans, and the other major fantasy races, representing cultures from the east (both near and far) and historical periods - Norse Elves, Gypsy Halflings, Slavic Dwarves, Arabian Humans, Chinese, Indian, Celts, Romans, Greeks - all of these things spread over the typical FRPG races.

 

For monsters I would like to see more fey creatures - not just fairies and pixies, but the Unseelie fey and other similar dark creatures from folklore.

 

Finally I would love for Reaper to get together with Open Design and make miniatures for the Midgard setting, so many cool things in the Midgard Bestiary (available for Pathfinder, AGE RPG, soon 4E, and I would not be surprised to see it for 5E should that be possible).

This. A thousand times, this.

I always loved the rankinbass orcs/goblins, and it would be fantastic to see both the fat, imposing sorts from The Hobbit and the miserable looking wretches from Return of The King.

Maybe not labeled as orcs or goblins, but some similarly silly named bugaboo.

Pig men.

 

I'm fond of those British pig faced orcs, and I wouldn't mind seeing an American source for them. Hell, I'd even like pig men HEADS, so I could kitbash police officers for Gamma World and Duke Nukem pickmeup skirmish!

I would absolutely love to see a Lizardman/Dragonman/Reptus Shadowknight/Anti Paladin/Blackguard. I realize there are several figures that could stand in for this, but I would absolutely love to see one done specifically in this vein. If you make this happen I pledge to buy at least 5.

In the Pathfinder line, I would like to see "Vorka, the goblin cannibal". While a picture of her has been produced, it isn't nearly nasty enough. It makes her look like just another goblin, when I picture her with a goblin-skin cloak (complete with faces...) and decorative bone jewelry.

Do you guys have any new dogs or wolves in the works? I have a Reaper diorama I'm planning (Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles), but your current offerings just don't work.

 

I need something like this:

And is this the kind of orc you guys are talking about?

I'd love to see some more fairies. Some more options from various fantasy interpretations.

I agree, perhaps a box set with fairies from all sorts of folk lore, not all fairies were nice :devil: could even have everything from pixies to wisps, brownies.... Would make for interesting forrest dioramas.

Also, on the were creatures, no female weresharks? Would be nice to have some female weresharks, perhaps make them different breeds than the others?

Amongst bad fairies, we should do the REALLY nasty ones that you just never see.

The nuckelavee, for instance, is a completely diabolical aberration of nature that resembles a rider mounted on a horse with a whale like mouth and black blood pumping over raw red muscles, all under translucent skin. It also has a poisonous, plant withering breath.

 

It's only recently become well know on an internet timescale, and I daresay the demand for it would be moderately high.

I can also see Kelpies, banshees (no, not the sexy screaming dead ladies), and many other fae as profitable minis.

 

Fairies don't have to be boring, and regional mythology tells us that they are anything but.
