Bones You'd Like to See, thread #2


Recommended Posts

How about a pedestal to set your mini on while in game play? For PCs or NPCs that can fly. Like this.

It would be cool in clear translucent or blue tinted translucent BONES. Then you could just put a little ball of blue tack and stick you mini on it when they use the fly spell. Right now we are just using what ever is handy to set the mini on to illustrate the spell is active. But it would be nice to have an accessory that is specifically designed for the purpose.

After sifting through the pile for some dungeon crawlers, I noticed two things that seem lacking in this KS:

 

1) Low-level adventurers.

I mean like poor, desperate, old-school D&D starter characters. "I'm new at this, so all I can afford is a longsword and leather armor." Every figure looks like the captain of the king's guard, or the wizard lord of Forgotten Tower. What happened to the loser with robes and a dagger and a book with "Read Magic"?

 

2) Clerics

Lots of fighters and wizards, but not many priestly types. Maybe modern clerics just look like warriors or mages? Where's the guy with a mace and holy symbol?

DCM is releasing 1" flight bases with a clear shaft attached.

Dixon was actually asking for a platform that could be placed underneath any mini, rather than a separate set of bases.

I'm not super keen on more gnolls. I get that people want variety, and variety is good, but for rank baddies so long as melee and ranged are present then I'd sooner give the slot to an all-new type. We have morning star gnoll and archer gnoll now.

 

I would be down with 02704 Manganaw, though.

I've inventoried my Vampire box and, since I had no miniatures at all before it arrived, I've now identified some gaps that the GM in me would like to see filled:

 

Beasts (animal companions, forest encounters)

- Wolves, horses, bears, boars, stags, panthers etc.

 

Dire Beasts (spikey version of above)

 

Brigands (low-level generic hostile NPCs)

- Archers, rogues, hand-axemen, slingers etc.

 

Urban NPCs (townsfolk ready for combat)

- Town Guards, thieves, pickpockets, caravan escorts etc.

 

Set pieces (obstacles for players to fight around)

- Wagons, carts, crates, barrells, tree stumps, bushes, debris piles, corpses

 

Gnomes (any and all!)

I think someone touched on this already, but I'd like to see a set similar to the Dungeon Adventurers where you have one of each class included (cleric, fighter, mage, etc.) except that they are all rookie-type adventurers that could pass as 1st level characters (young, basic gear, not a "veteran" look to them.)

I'd like to see this too, I think the Sir Justin figure is a prime example if a low level fighter (simple armor, basic sword, giant backpack and bedroll on his back.)

 

I'd also like to see some sci-fi alien types in the Bones line, I'm about to begin a Mars campaign, and while I can use the Reaper yetis as the Martian great apes, there is nothing to use that could approximate the four-armed green Martian Tharks.

This is a cool idea and I really like your sketch - I think it is beautiful and looks great!

I'd like to get some Shark men. I've yet to pick up any of those but they look great I think there are six in the metal catalog and with there organic shapes would translate well to the bones material.

 

perhaps a translucent bones jellyfish monster, to supplement my aquatic warband.

 

or a giant megladon sharkman

Personally, I would like to see some discrete groups or warbands. Themed bulk packs of 10+ minis. Hope the main set in KS2 has the kind of groups just about everyone can use, and some of the more specialized ones as add ons.

 

For main I am thinking...

1) a cult

2) brigands

3) orcs (could alwats use more)

4) Introductory adventurers

5) Town militia

6) combat townsfolk (cowering/ hiding, or doing the best they can)

7) normal animals

8) dire animals

 

For add ons... sky is the limit, however, some of these groups would really please

-mounted humans -wolf mounted orcs/gobbos -evil(or angry) flora -set of elementals (translucents 3/4) (or maybe just the other 3)

-more crosstime adventurers -reich of the dead -townsfolk zombies (esp. of identifiable minis.) -mounted lower-halves for a wide variety of folk, -Pack animals/ wagon train -different oceanic threats natural as well as merfolk, and others (some blue translucent) -shadow creatures(grey translucent) -cyberpunk characters*** (for the win) -different IMEF -mechs (sure toss 'em in) -modern, -set of assorted wings (some translucent)...
