Bones You'd Like to See, thread #2


Recommended Posts

Another nice addition to the line would be a skeletal dragon of playable size.  Kaladrax is a beautiful sculpt, and a excellent display piece, but he / she / it is a bit much to put on the tabletop.  A skeletal dragon mini, of roughly the same size as the other bones dragons that are currently available ( Deathsleet, Cinder Blightfang), would be a welcome addition to the line, speaking as a DM.  Also, I think it would be a nice touch to throw in a phylactery mini, just to make scene building and dioramas easier.

Have you considered Nethyrmaul? Not fully skeletal, but close.

More female monstrous humanoids across all lines. More female figures that are not just T&A with feet.

 

More lizardmen (lots more lizardmen, especially Gene Van Horne lizardmen)

 

Stormwing, to fill out the Chromatics. Narthrax is not a Blue. Yes, he can be painted blue. But he isn't.

 

Different-sized Chromatics, especially large and gargantuan.

 

Giants that are Huge ( Hill Giants accomplished!), as the new Hill Giants make your Fire and Frost Giants look like well-dressed ogres.

 

Hobgoblins. Preferably the old-school Japanese ones.

 

More half-orcs across all lines: female, male, different classes.

 

None of my players prefer Bones to pewter for PC figures, so less PC figures (as a percentage of KS3).

 

The Moor Troll ( the only Reaper Troll that looks like a proper Poul Anderson D&D Troll)

 

In general, more larger figures that are native to the Bones material.

I agree with all the last three post (including the second post correcting the idea of less PC characters)

 

I tried to pick up a few of the bones townsfolk from the first set and i was apart of the second KS.  So that would be great to populate a town.  At least 30 in total of townsfolk and then buying multiples become ok for me.  

 

I can totally vibe with the issue  of the giants not matching up in size.  I recently bought the 3 core 5th edition books and the giants are all labelled as huge with the hill giants being the smallest, so you can see why that is an issue in the bones line.  

 

And Dragons!!!  I am not big on large and smaller dragons, but i can understand why they are wanted.  But gargantuan dragons!  Bring them please, and a bunch!  So far Nathavarr is the only gargantuan dragon not dead and because he is made for display, he is a bit basey (i had to trim the base on mine to fit 5x5 base).  The pose is perfect, just wish we had a few more with less base.

 

I also am on the same page that we need at least each race of each class of each sex out of the way, then we can get into dynamic poses down the line after that set is met.

A skeleton horse, for two reasons:

 

1. Skeleton horse

 

2. Bones skeleton horse + Bones skeleton warrior = Skeleton centaur + Horse skull

 

What's not to like?

A really big ape or gorilla that is not a cyborg in bones. Useful for fantasy and pulp adventures. There are already two great sculpts in metal, one of those bonesified would be awesome.

Wishlist: 

 

1) More lizardmen varieties

2) More Centaur folk!

3) A greater variety of knolls, ogres and hill giants (though KS II helps here)

4) General "tough" wildlife (boars, bears, etc).

 

I think the current range expansion is coming along great, but especially for the common "baddies", I'd love to see a continued increase in model variety so we aren't fielding the same model 4-10 times over (gnoll bands, etc)!

Adding to the townsfolk idea, non-human townsfolk.

 

Elf farmers, dwarven miners and smiths, halfling children enjoying themselves under a Tree Where Parties Are Held... you get the idea.

 

More nontraditional minis, like an elven smith, would be good too, but after the generics are gotten out of the way.

A giant gorilla would be great, but also a normal-sized, mundane gorilla (fitting a 1" base) so we can have a pack of them to harass explorers.

 

What if you cut the wings off the Ape demon?

It could work in a pinch, but the back of each mini would need to be resculped after the wings were popped off (defeating the convenience factor of Bones) and, while ape-like, it clearly isn't a gorilla.  Nice thought, though.

Bones needs more mundane critters anyway. They're nice and cheap, so buying a number of them would be ideal for a bunch of horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, goats *looks at Talespinner's critters* as well as exotic animals like gorillas, apes, chimps, wildebeests, ibex, ELEPHANTS, tigers, and so forth.

 

Especially elephants. :rock:
