I'd love to see a conversion pack, with wings and heads (dragonman, birdman, orcman) in bonesium, and lots of weapons in wyrmgear-wing-grade plastic.


I'd also like to see more unarmed, monk-type character models. Really the only thing missing, though that's perhaps the easiest conversion to make overall.


My favorite Reaper mini I don't own is 60090 Degenerate Serpentfolk. I'm a fan of the serpentfolk in general, and think Khavith the serpentfolk evoker would be a good add, too.


Favorite things that have shown up so far are: Dragoth and the Sea Priest, Thoth, water elemental and snotcube, and all of the monstrous humanoids (new gnolls and bugbears, turtlemen, goatmen, frogmen, ratmen...)

Nefsokar horseback guys and some Anubiii warrior guys.


Other than that, more themed sets like the sylvan ones were. Underwater would be fantastic and there are so many options.. also would like a cold-weather set, a desert one, etc. Not everyone plays games in middle-latitude deciduous forests. :)


Oh and I think I heard some requests on /tg/ for "cavalry cavalry" and "modern/scifi props." I'll go ahead and second those!

Lantern archons. One of the most common summoned monsters at my tabletop game (and many others I suspect) but I've never been able to find a decent proxy. I'd love to stop using fire mephits and small fire elementals as stand-ins.

I would like to see some war machines at some point. Might I suggest something I could proxy in for an Arbalester.

The arbalester makes a bolt attack against two different targets within 5 squares of each other.

As far as more translucent minis go, here's a couple sets I think would be awesome:

One set of clear/smoky figures:

- ghost / wraith

- air elemental

- invisible stalker / aerial servant

- wall of air

- 1 or 2 invisible heroes

One set of translucent yellow figures:

- will-o-wisp / lantern archon

- radiant angel

- yellow mold / ochre jelly

- amber golem

- crystal terrain

I love gigantic monster miniatures, and it makes a lot of sense to make them in Bones. That said, I usually will only be able to use them once or twice before they become old hat.


Here are some ideas for big(ish) things that aren't creatures:

- A sailing/flying ship (with removable masts, one side of the hull exposed so you can put minis inside, and cast in modular sections so you can remove the middle section for a smaller ship)

- A set of wagons, carriages, and carts (use them all together as a caravan)

- Big ruins (one side more wild/natural and the other side more built up/wall-like so you can flip it around depending on what you want to show, sculpted so it can double as a cave or dungeony entrance, and perhaps designed to be modular so you can rearrange the component parts into a couple different basic layouts)

- A set of seige towers, seige engines, cannons, and other big mobile constructs commonly used in war. (Bones ballistas for Dragons Night Out!)

Off the top of my head, and these are in no particular order, with the exception of the Giants, which I really want to see more of:


More Giants (I really missed out by not being in the first Bones KS)



Umber Hulk

Bathalians (Illithd / Mind Flayers)

Dungeon Decor additions

Dark Elves / Drow






Beholder (Eyebeast)



Yeah. I like fantasy stuff. :)


Off topic, it is my personal feeling that we are not seeing more pledges because the 3rd "section" of the core expansion has not officially been unlocked yet. I think a lot of people are waiting for that to happen, and then we will see a surge - not that I have problems with rate of progression - I think we are making decent headway, and still have a lot of time left.

I'm weird, in that I'm using Bones for 1/72 scale gaming (see my sig!), so to that end, I'd love to see more small-sized minis. Kobolds are the exact size I'm talking about. The Dragon Hatchlings in the Core set, and the Hordlings in the Core Expansion are also good examples, as are the Familiars from Kickstarter I. Other possibilities I've stumbled upon are these:




or these:




Any other similar possibilities?
