Sigh...can anyone please do some Kender minis?

Recommended Posts

Can someone PLEASE do some kender minis?  (You can call them "sprites" if you're worried about copyrights, but for some reason, I don't think WoTC will mind the free advertising for their novels and such!)

 

Also, I've looked high and low, and can't find TINKER GNOMES!

 

And, I would dearly love to find some (gasp!  Out of Stock) farm animals, goats, sheep, chickens, cows, to put on the gaming mat outside the Inn I just purchased!

Pretty sure there are some animals from the nativity set. I'm not sure how large. Hobby lobby has tons of miniature animals. Not pewter though. And while sifting through reaper boneyard I'm sure I saw a chicken. There's a pug, hawks, parrots.

I haven't dusted off my Hoopak in years! If I could model, I'd make a few Kenders, with girdles of titan strength, boots of speed, and a ginormous bag of holding.... There is no insurance company in the world that could cover a herd of Kenders with that assortment of items...

Reaper has a sheep in the nativity set and chickens in the Townsfolk: Children set.

I feel your pain as a Dragonlance fan.  The only halflings I generally run across are more Hobbit in appearance than Kender.  I was lucky to pick up Ral Partha's Kender 2-pack back in the day along with a handful of other Kender-looking minis in the 90s.  Yesterday I also won an auction for 19 minis including the original boxed set of Dragonlance characters (Tas, Raistlin, Tanis, etc.) along with a few other minis for under $50.  Can't wait for those to come in.

 

As an aside, I wasn't aware until recently that there Kenders in the Ravenloft line of minis (a Kender Vampire, believe it or not.)

I am NOT a kender! My name clearly has "goblin" in it. Stoopid dworf.

As I said, identity problems.

 

 

And besides your name clearly says *the* goblin. And since there is no *the* goblin, because that would imply a paragon of sorts, something that is impossible for goblinkind, you are clearly a kender.

And really in a word no. To produce a Kender mini and call it a Kender would require a license, you have to convince someone that the license is worth it and if WoTC /Hasbro would even be interested in selling a license for it.

I'll give you a kender.  A kender surprise. 

 

Heh heh heh.

WotC will be putting out new D&D minis this summer (I think).  Maybe they'll do a few new kenders.  Otherwise, picking up a used one may be your only option.  Or maybe picking up a 15 or 20mm elf as a stand-in.

      Hey guys! I am looking to recreate The Heroes of the Lance from the Dragonlance books. I was wondering which miniatures people would suggest ( from Reaper only ) and why?
       
       
      Thanks!

      So with my obsession with My Dark Lady, I have painted up the old Ral Partha Takhisis mini from the Dragonlance Villains box.
      But since I had previously painted up the DSM version as the human version of her avatar, I was at a loss as to what I should do when I fell into an old Ral Partha mini from Evilbay cheap...
       
      Well, She is a Deity, so why should Her Avatar be limited to human? And as my avatar is a Drow....
       
      So I give you The Queen of Darkness as a Drow...
       
              
       
      Not as happy with her as I was with my DSM, but....
       
      Thanks for looking!

      ***In another bout of insanity, I had started this mini as well....***
       
      ***And it's about time too....***
       
      ***Yes my Queen of Darkness....***
       
      So while hunting the Bay of all Evil, I ran across the 'human' Avatar of Takhisis from the box set for a good price, and bought her. After she made her way here from Denmark, and got cleaned up and primed, she has been getting som paint here and there...
      Decay Black base coat for the skin, followed by MSP Dark elf triad...(incomplete) Eyes were White Sands and Aldebaran Red Bikini with Sunset Purple       
       
      ***I mean I already painted her Awesomness' Human Avatar, (DSM Barbarian Queen), so I thought that MY people would be fitting for an Avatar of the Queen of Chaos....***
       
      ***I will reserve my judgement until I see what you have done with my other mortal form.....***
       
      ***Yes my Queen! I will do my finest work!***
       
      ***You had Better!***
       
      (Ma'al Drakkar....)
       
      ****AAAAAAhhhhh Dreamy.........****

      Allright Reaperites! This is what took me so dang long to get finished and shipped out to Marsya, which was supposed to go out last fall, I believe. At any rate, the crazy whirlwind that is life delayed the project by several months, and I am happy to report that she had received it! At any rate, I knew it would have to be special as she'd requested something along the lines of fall in Krynn. I was able to track down this: 
       
      Goldmoon:

       
      And this:
       
      Riverwind:

       
      These two are a couple of the main characters out of the Dragonlance novels, and I figured they would be a great pair for the nature scene that I was planning to prepare. So I purchased them, stripped the old paint that was left from God knows when (these minis are from 1989), and proceeded to paint them up!
       
      The base is a simple birch section from Michael's. The leaves and tree trunk are from Secret Weapons, the plants and such are Army Painter (I think) and everything else is sand and paint from various places. The bowstring is from my little girl's hairbrush. 
       
      One thing that was driving me nuts as these were the first two minis that I started painting once I started up again, and they seemed so small! Turned out that they were smaller than what I was used to. They gave me fits for a while as I readjusted to painting. At any rate, here's the result:
       

       
      And a collage:

       
      So I finished my exchange! I hate that it took so long, and I'm going to do my best to never allow that to happen again! LOL! 
       
      Questions and Comments are definitely appreciated! Thank you all for viewing!

      This is an old Ral Partha miniature that has been re-purposed into a Blood Bowl coach (this one was for a client, but I've definitely considered getting one of her myself).
       
      She has a certain Elmore style about her that really works, and the sculpting was better than I expect from minis the same age (especially on the face).
       
      Anyway, here she is:
