Bones You'd Like To See

Recommended Posts

More bugbears and more of the Ben Siens style lizardmen.

 

I get the feeling that the Van Horne lizardmen are more likely to be the style for Bones, and the Siens lizardman was kind of a stop-gap. There's still hope that the Siens one will sell well enough at it's lower price that they'll make more; at the very least I'd love to see one of the tyrants in Bones.

How about some figures drawing from various world mythologies? It seems like there's a lot of interesting diversity there (winged giant cats, multi-armed things from various cultures, the persian djinns/efreets, lots of hybrid human/animal combinations) while also filling the 'large minis that can be used as monsters' that has been oft-requested.

I know, I know, it's been said before, but maaaaaaan....Mouslings. I'm completely (COMPLETELY) new to minis, and I realize that, as a guy, I should be all into super-scary monsters or ridiculously underclad wannabe Barbie Warriors or something, but meh to all of that. I live for adorable and them things is adorable. I will make a Candy Land world to display them in. CUPCAKE HOUSES! How could Mouslings not shoot to the top of the Reaper Official Priority List with an idea like that floating out there?!?!

 

Also, Legion of Justice and Caeke. I will pay a hefty charitable markup. Twice.

Aw, that's adorable.

 

Please don't be constrained by stereotypes of gender. Me, I've been known to appreciate a pin-up or two. Within reason, anyway. And Mouslings are my little boy's favorites.

 

You like what you like, you know?

Exactly. I am a 240 pound Brown belt in karate, living and (sometimes) working on a farm. I just about squeed when I found the mousling adventurers ( wizard warrior archer & barbarian pirate duelist) packs, Valentine's mousling and mouseling Santa on the shelf at my game store last week. Stereotype? Bah, who needs that

Heh. I'm a tattooed, head-shaved, chain-smoking, hard-drinking guitar player in a punk band. The looks I get when I go all squishy over baby pictures or when I'm talking up some girly pop song that is JUST PERFECTLY WRITTEN (get down witcha bad self, T.Swift) are priceless.

 

Anyway. Mouslings. Gimme.

I loves me some adorable badass men ^_^

 

I would like fantasical scenery in bones. Like, trees that look like they might eat you, or giant flowers with children in them. Elven buildings, Dwarven gates, big evil looking towers. That sort of thing.

With plastic molds being expensive, I'd like to someday see Reaper partner up with other companies to mass-produce plastic miniatures, or provide an "orphanage" for popular plastic lines. For example, with Cthulhu Wars, Fenris Games sculpts the miniatures, and Reaper produces them, for the game or for the miniatures-only market. Or, with Descent 1st edition, Reaper gets ahold on the metal molds and puts out Bones versions of the plastics. (Thanks to the FFG Descent 2nd edition Conversion Kit, quite a few BoardGameGeek'ers backed the Reaper KS for the bulk proxy miniatures!) Seems a waste of metal molds if they're not used because of the game, rather than the sculpt. Trollforge is already doing something similar for small-scale miniature sculptors who don't want the work of casting mini's. It's a shame that longtime hobby companies aren't coordinating their strengths in putting out an "all in one" product of an RPG, game, and miniatures. (OTOH, If Wizards can't even write an adventure that uses their *current* lines of dungeon tiles and miniatures, we're not going to see something like this anytime soon!)

 

Bases: Sinces Bones plastic is softer than previous plastic, they're *much* easier to rebase. So why not have Reaper make textured bases? Bones bases would be softer than hard plastic bases, so would be easier to pin. The Happy Seppuku KS also shows that hobbyists will pay $25 and up for texture stamps, and I bet these stamps can be made from Bones plastic as well.

 

Terrain: Also, with Bones making bigger models, why not terrain? Dwarven Forge's KS for dungeon tiles pulled in $1.9M and was followed by three dungeon tile KS. Several small companies have made laser-cut buildings, and SF terrain was one of the selling points of the $1.2M Mantic Games Deadzone KS. I'd like to see some modular medieval buildings so my mini's can fight above ground or have a tavern fight! Or a lake that you could paint then pour in some Woodland Scenic water resin.

 

+1 for more mythos monsters, and mouselings!

Ooh -- That's a great idea! I wonder what old plastic figure molds are available? I'd certainly like to see some of the nice Dreamblade sculpts reappear.

 

For that matter, as a boardgamer, I'd love to see Reaper license some of their existing plastic minis for use in games. That would reduce the costs for the board game companies (compared with making new molds), make a bit for Reaper, and give us game players some cool miniatures for our games.

I would love to see the Descent lieutenants in Bones plastic!

 

Also, I'd like to see more weaponless characters... characters who are sorcerers/warlocks/witches/wizards who don't require weapons to battle. Particularly men... I don't think there are any male character in the KS bones that don't use a weapon (or aren't incredibly old/unattractive).

After searching for bases so that I could try some simple re-basing projects on my Bones, most of what I could find was resin. And I'd really like some plastic ones, even if they were plain, because of the ease of gluing my Bones guys right onto the plastic.

 

A friend of mine bought the Ravenloft board game for the minis because he was planning to run us through the Ravenloft adventure. Making those minis out of Bones plastic would be amazing. :D

Some cat-people minis would be nice - ones that look like EverQuest's Vah Shir in particular.

 

(ideally I'd like to see a whole line of EverQuest (the original) minis because I like the game models, but that'll never happen I'm afraid - the game is no longer as popular as it once was).

 

If some terrain pieces such as a variation of trees is possible without costing too much that'd be pretty neat too.
