Bones You'd Like to See, thread #2

Recommended Posts

Well either I have missed this one or no one thought of it yet...most likely missed it though, but two things. First conversion/weapons paks. it would be nice to be able to quickly and inexpensively change out weapons and parts to make unique characters. And second I loved the addition of the kobold leader and sorcerer, would Love to see a bones version of Snar Mangebelly the kobold king. Even the goblins have way more possibilities just would like to complete a kobold camp

Machine-men (Warforged) and Machine-men Titans. Anyone who plays in any DnD game that uses Warforged will be thrilled at this.

 

Gnomes

Cavalry

Horses

Horses in Barding

Undead Horses

Pegasus (didn't see one when I looked)

More variations of ghost/specter type stuff

Animated Armor (of various designs)

I'd like to see more:

  • Drow (varieties of weapons, clothing, armor, classes)
  • Female heroes (with more clothes/armor, nothing against the cheesecake, but I want more gritty and realistic)
  • Packs of Animals (things that hunt in packs such as wolves/hyenas or prides such as lions)
  • Gnomes (varieties of weapons, clothing, armor, classes)
  • Halflings (varieties of weapons, clothing, armor, classes)
  • Displacer Beasts (or equivalent)
  • Giants (more poses, more types, different weapons, and finish off the Storm/Cloud giant/giantess counterparts from KS1)
  • Flying Mounts (I see Siri said Pegasus, yep want that one for sure)

I will post this in more than one place since the Kickstarter is over.

I would real like to see some new minis with nonstandard racial and physical features. Now since thwy are small and in painted this may often be restricted to hair texture and body type. But as a black gamer it would be nice to see some minis with naturals, or cornrows or flat tops taller skinny or short round body types or armore/equipment with non standard cultural influences. A fighter in full plate with a flat top and a Zulu inspired shield for example would be great. Just a thought I know the mythology is mostly European and so are the customers but a little diversity never hurts.

I second the request. Leo and Diane Dillon painted a myriad of fantasy novel covers which featured strong, wonderful black characters. Some African-inspired identifiably black fantasy characters would be most welcome.

 

I would like to see magic users based on African mythology such as Anansi the spider or Eshu the messenger or Anynanwu the sun goddess. Or, well, fantasy versions because thinking about it you don't want to be insensitive. But identifiably African. 28mm scale is not too small for recognizable features and details.

I would love this so much! Right now the only ones I've seen have been... less than tasteful. That's the polite way to put it.

 

There's so many awesome cultures in the world to draw influence from, it's sad that most of our fantasy art is drawn from European, though more recently Eastern Asian. I would like to see some based on Anicent Meso American cultures also. As well as being good for gaming, they'd make awesome gifts for my mommy ^_^ (she's an anthropologist, totally obsessed with ancient Americas)

I agree with Stoakley Lloyd. Even with mostly European mythology (specifically Anglo saxon and Germanic) Theirs no reason characters of African descent wouldn't be around at least a little. The two continents have interacted for thousands of years. The Greeks conquered Egypt during the classical period and the Moors occupied a large part of Spain and Italy during the Medieval period. Africa was a rich source of gold and diamonds, so trade between the two continents was also common. The slave trade was also prominent, but since most fantasy nations tend to be more enlightened than real ones that may be less of a factor. Obviously in a fantasy campaign world can work however the Dm wants, but I like historical examples to provide context on how things happen.

I've been mulling the idea of starting a Warhammer Bretonian army based on a mixture of what Europeans would have though Prester John would have sent to rescue them and an actual Ethiopian look to the army. I'd have them march with the Arc of the Covenant, get some priests with processional tryptics, etc.

 

So no, I don't want to see this kind of thing happen in bones because that would make it very hard to me to resist my mad, fevered dream. What with the low prices and easy conversions. And I'm very sure my painting skills would not be up to matching my imagination and it would make me sad.

I also like the more animals. I think a lot has been done for the kickstarter II, but yes to animals.

I'd like to see more unarmed modern figures - police, firemen, hazmat, something that would be everyday for modern gaming.

I would also support diversity of cultures/historic stuff as mentioned above by Stoakley Lloyd.

 

The only stuff I can think of is the Egyptian stuff - some of which was converted for the recent kickstarter.
