What Mini's would you like to see in a Boxed set??


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone - in the time I have left to wait for my e-mail for my Bones KS... :devil:

 

I'm trying to stay busy going through the forums and making paint lists and all that I started to look at some superhero mini's for an upcoming Champions campaing i might get into.

 

In looking for the superherop mini's I saw Reaper had 28 of them - if I got them all I'd pay a whopping $187+ tax. That got me thinking - "MAN, I wish they had a Boxed Set of these!!!"

 

That spun up this question - what mini's would other's like to see in a boxed set??

 

Would these ever be in a boxed set?

 

Could we get them in a boxed set?

 

 

Just thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone else has given it some thought!

I love boxed sets. Even if I don't like certain minis, if you put them in a boxed set the suddenly become 26.37% more attractive to me. I would kind of like to see a villains boxed set. Something kind of like the flip side of the dungeon adventurers boxed set, nifty overlord bad guy evil types.

I'd kinda like to see some Reaper sculptor collections. Boxes that contain a selection of a particular sculptors works.

 

Also would like to see boxed sets of "adventurers" classes. A box of Thieves of mixed races and sexes, fighters, clerics, spellcasters.

Interesting, as I've never seen those boxed sets of adventures at any of my local game stores, and one of them does carry a rather large selection of Reaper.

 

I have seen boxed sets of monsters and dragons. Pirates I think. A couple of other things too, but never the adventurers.

Those sets aren't boxed, I think. Or at least the one I have, one of the female wizards sets, came in a single blister pack, slightly more crowded than usual.

 

My FLGS didn't carry it, although they are normally very good about keeping all of Reaper's current minis in stock. I had to order it directly from Reaper.

 

I suspect you need more than three figures to make a boxed set.

Ya, DHL Classics line comes in blisters.

 

How about a box of demons? We have a box of angels, a box of demons comparable to that would be spiffy. A boxed set of the gnolls, including the female ones. Make a couple more mushrooms guys (maybe, I dunno how big they are) and make a boxed set of them. A box of the bathalians, maybe with some of the alien looking ones. A second dungeon horrors boxed set with the Mind Eater 03582, Blabbering Horrors 03583, Oxidation Beast 03585, Gug Eldritch Horror 50039, Shoggoth 50248, and the Astral Mauler 02976. Lastly, a box of sea monsters.

      Hour of Need is a cooperative game of comic book action inspired by the costumed heroes that many of us grew up with. Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), also featured in Street Masters, Brook City, and Altar Quest, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, villain decks, and issue decks can all be mixed and matched to create countless combinations of unique play experiences.
      Miniatures
      Each hero in Hour of Need is represented by a highly-detailed miniature, as well as each villain and their associated lackeys.
      Hero Decks
      Each hero in Hour of Need is defined by their unique deck of cards, representing their crime-fighting abilities. While each hero has their own playstyle, all hero decks share something in common in the form of heroic feats which make certain cards multi-purpose—do you want to play a card for its ability, or keep it in your hand to use its “toughness” heroic feat icon to protect yourself from damage? Managing your hand is crucial in avoiding crises!
      Villain Decks
      Villain decks are the primary opposition in Hour of Need. During the villain turn, each player draws a villain card and resolves its icons—these will spawn minions in scheme panels, trigger special villain abilities, or spawn perils & lackeys on the map. Additionally, villain cards feature “Showdown” effects that are resolved whenever a villain is attacked by a hero—if the heroes can first reveal the villain!
      Issue Decks and Issue Boards
      Like any good comic book series, Hour of Need tells its stories through issues—issue decks, in this case. Each issue deck is accompanied by an issue board that sets the scene for the conflict. The issue deck details the overall story and special rules for the game. Whether the heroes are attempting to thwart a bank robbery or prevent advanced weaponry from being stolen, the issue deck will provide the villain with their overall goal, which the heroes must prevent in order to win!
      Issue Guides
      The issue guide provides all the narrative and rules clarifications for each issue in the game. Players can choose to play a more story-based experience by reading each story point as its cue effects are triggered.
      Hero Dice
      Heroes must fight and solve their way through their enemies’ various machinations. Hero dice are used to resolve each fight and solve action, while focus tokens are used to mitigate these rolls.
      Tokens
      Tokens are used to track various game elements, such as how much damage a character has suffered, how much justice has been dealt to a problem, as well as where minions and bystanders appear on the board. Additionally, each issue introduces unique tokens to add another level of thematic immersion.

      We have all had brushes with the hard to explain , the apparent impossible , the out of this world ... here's a chance to share a memory or few ...
       
       So way back in my younger days me, my brother and two friends we coming home from an all day "monsters of rock" concert in San Francisco,  we stoped at a store to pick up some liquids refreshments and snaks for the ride home when I saw them ... coming down the street was a largish gang "wilding" , basically thumping everyone that came across their path ... they were a block away and I was the last one to get into my car ... "hay guys get out" , I said, "let's teach these punks a lesson" ... now I was the assistant wrestling coach at the local college wail I was still in high school and have had a wide range of training over the years so this wad kind of a natural response for me ... the other three had way more common sense, asking me to get in so we can go , this went on as the gang kept coming down the block beating up all who crossed their path ...
       
       Just then I herd a car screech to a stop, out of it flew a figure dressed all in black with the bat man emblem on his chest , he dashed across the street in short order armed only with two sawed off baseball bats and laid into the gang ... after over ten years of hand to hand combat training I can tell you, he knew what he was doing and executed every move with impressive precision ... after one of the best fight scenes I have seen in any bat man movie he dashed back to the bat mobile (A primer black ElComeno) and was gone ... leaving a mess of moaning thugs and cheering fans ... 
       
       What a day, Monsters of rock and Bat man ... hard to say witch was more intense.

      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)

      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      Couple of tabletop Bones figures I painted over the winter and have been able to finally finish now that spring is here. 
       

       
      The Black Mist is actually done in shades of blue and purple, but the subtleties don't show on my cheap camera.
