monsters, mooks, and dungeon dressing. I for one would love to see a line of dungeon dressing pieces, that included all sorts of things from torture equipment (racks, cages, stocks, whipping posts with manacles, etc.) to furniture (beds, tables, chairs etc.) the problem however is initial cost vs sales and I fear it would not be cost effective for Reaper

Not sure if this has been said already (or if I even said it) since this threads been going for a while and I haven't read it from the start in a while, but I'd love to see Mouslings in the Bones line. My daughter has most of the metal ones, but to me, the Bones minis are easier to customize and I'd like to give that a shot.

Personally I think you should change the topic to 'What would you NOT want converted into bones'

I have been painting a lot of bones over the last few months and I think it works better for some things than others. So far the monsters have been the best. The character pieces tend to be a little hit and miss. This makes sense though. If a ghoul comes out a little warped with his arm in a funny position its ok. He is a ghoul, maybe its supposed to look that way. The same is true of a troll or a beholder. Heck a zombie can have a melted face and it looks cool. Warping, moldlines and excess flash can sometimes be worked into the figure. But if a paladin has even one finger out of place it will show. People know what a paladin is supposed to look like. Also if someone is using a miniature as their character in a game they want it to look really good. But if a GM is using figures for monsters, they are really just 3D game tokens (unless it is the boss monster). So I would encourage you to consider doing more monsters and dungeon accessories and less character pieces. Save those for pewter.

 

just my two cents

Fairy tale miniatures! (:

 

Fairytale Games offered 40 fairy tale mini's in their last KS, but I didn't pledge because I didn't see sculpts. If anyone know more about these mini's (not the current KS) send me a PM.

 

Reaper has a *really* nice Cinderalla miniature and I'd like to see her and others in the KS!

EDIT: Sure, Numenera! http://www.beastsofwar.com/reaper-miniatures/reaper-miniatures-bring-numenera-figure-set/

 

 

Also: Mouselings, Cthulhu investigators, and Cthulhu figures!

To throw in two more of my cents, I'd like to see more "not" type minis. In the previous KS it was nice to get a ton of zombies, skeletons, goblins, etc., but at this point my collection of monsters and generic Elves, Dwarves, etc. is getting pretty out of hand. I'd like to see characters like not-Conan, not-Drizzt, not-Tanis, etc. The not-the-Shadow from this KS was a nice addition in my opinion. Of course, if the next set of Bones will just be existing minis converted to Bones, it would be great to see "not" characters in metal.

I'd like to see a Bones starter set. By that I mean, a set similar to the How to paint, in that it includes a pc mini and two others such as a rat, skeleton, orc etc. Included in the set would be a small pamphlet that describes proper ways to boil and reset them, along with a few other details like dealing with mold lines and all that jazz, maybe ways to convert them.

 

This thought came to me while driving home, as I was dealing with minis well before I ever went online for help of any kind. I figure something like this might help very new folks to the hobby.

Now that Bones has gotten me hooked on painting minis I would like to try my hand at basing. I think it would be great if we could get all of our basing supplies from Reaper too. I have not based anything yet so I'd like to hear what some of the more knowledgeable people think about it. While I love the bones minis it seems to me that some of the bases are a little lacking. It would be nice to have a wide array of base sizes and shapes made of bones materials, either with a terrain made directly into the base or separately that could be added as an insert between the base and the mini. Then maybe we could get some sprues with base dressings. Things like weapons, shields, skulls, treasure, etc. Of course these things could be used for other things besides bases like conversions and dungeon dressing. I'm not sure what all kinds of materials are frequently used but maybe we could also get a range of different kinds of flock directly from Reaper. Seems like it would be handy to have a source of consistent material that comes in standard containers for easy storage that are clearly labeled.

 

I'm also a sucker for paint now too. The only thing I didn't grab from the last kickstarter was one of the paint sets and I really regret it. Hopefully we'll see some more paint in the next one.

 

One more thing that I think would be great. I would love the option to do addons for existing Reaper items at normal prices just so I could save a bit on shipping. I realize that someone could abuse this but surely some sort of limits could be put in place for weight and or size of addons. This way I could grab the few Bones that are missing from my collection and some more paint.
