What I want (from Reaper) for Christmas

Recommended Posts

Y'know, Reaper's been very good about Christmas miniatures lately. Jason Wiebe's Santa dwarves are great, we have Gene's original Santa (which is easily converted to Zombie Santa, btw), the Santa Mouseling, the new Elf girl, the Nativity, which continues to be expanded... yeah, Reaper's pretty much on top of their holiday promotions. I hope it's profitable. It's certainly fun.

So, naturally, I want more.

I really like the new Santa Dwarf, with candy cane and axe. The trouble is, it doesn't go far enough.

I have decided I want a completely over-the-top Simon Bisley style barbarian, with muscles on his muscles, an entire bearskin for a kilt, mighty axe in hand, foam upon his shrieking lips, eyeballs bugged so big I can paint the little veins on them... wearing a Santa hat.

Beard optional. Make it a detachable piece, even, sold with the barbarian; add it or leave it off, as you wish. 

I mean, think about it. Who wouldn't want one of THOSE in his collection, with the Ral Partha Killer Rabbits and GW Thruds?

The concept is expandable. The following year, release a Chainmail Bikini variant, also with Santa hat, sword in hand, snarl on lips, and built in such a way as to drive the feminists crazy. Over the top! And the year after THAT, just rerelease one of the Warlord Yetis, but with big cartoon eyes and sharky teeth, as a Christmas Bumble! And the year after that, an over-the-top attacking ungulate, fangs so big he can't close his mouth! Reaper would call it Dire Reindeer, of course, but WE'D know it was Dread Rudolph, and paint him accordingly...

I ask no compensation for the idea; I offer it freely and without claim. As a writer, I've been approached by those what say "Howbout I tell you my story, and you do all the work of writing the book and making it cool and readable and coherent, and then we split the $ fifty-fifty?" Yeah, right. No, take it and run with....

...what time is it?

Good lord, I haven't had my coffee and medication yet...

I want Santa, Mrs. Claus, and Elves all armed with modern weaponry. And a Lee Majors figure with a Minigun.

This cries out to be used in a wargame. Krampus and his minions unvade the North Pole...

I would hang them from a string of christmas lights and hang them over my work area.

...I rather LIKE the idea of "Strong Jawed Action Hero In Santa Disguise (with optional Santa hat) and Minigun."

 

Reaper already makes a Krampus, though. Still one of their finest business decisions.

That could be their next kickstarter!

Well, at the moment, all I wanted was a crazed barbarian in a Santa hat.

But I wouldn't say no to all the rest...

      FYI the game components graphic near the top show what you get if you go "all in" NOT what's in a standard box.

      Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers. 

      Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey.
       
      Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.

      EOE is proud to presents a Harlequin Miniatures Production - Classic Oldhammer Shadow Elves including Heroes, Assassins, Enchanters, Crossbowpersons, Siege Engines and scary Raptor Riders!
      Great Designs for the discerning Collector and Roleplayer. These Shadow Elves will bring terror to all that face them in Battle, be they namby-pamby Humans, goody two shoed Elves or the weakling Dwarves. These fantastic Miniatures, originally released in 1990’s, are being remoulded to cast in lead-free pewter by the skillful (ish) hands of John Olsen and his wonderful staff. Please peruse the figures below...

      With harsh features and a reputation to match Shadow Elves are a particularly nasty race who believe that they are the only true Elves. They do not see themselves as nasty or evil, their view is simply that it is the other races which have strayed from the correct path. A popular Shadow Elf saying which succinctly explains their philosophy is: “Those who allow others to pass will soon be left behind”. Suffice it to say that the Shadow Elves are continually pushing forward.
       
      Shadow Elves despise humans and their ways and feel that the other Elven races are far too Human in their outlook, at times ignoring their Elven Heritage. (This is not true, in any sense of the word, but that doesn't stop the Shadow Elf from believing it). It is rumored that they cut the tips off the ears of Elves that they capture, “humanizing” their appearance to match their actions, but this is believed to be apocryphal. While it is true that there are subtle and not-so-subtle color variations in the skin tones of every race, there are none so stark as the difference between the Shadow Elves of the south and those who live in the northern regions. Southern clans have deep-red skin the color of molten lava and those of the North have blue skin and often have dark blue or purple hair. There is no clear reason for this Regional difference but it is believed to date back to the time of “The Time of the Seven Trials” during the First Age. No records exist which details what the Seven Trials were or how they could have changed them in this fashion, but cave drawings and pictographs deep in the Indegahn cave system, as yet undeciphered, may hold the key.
