Bones You'd Like to See, thread #3

Recommended Posts

I think I've got enough, uh, well, not enough, but at least all the mouslings in Bones so far, counting the set from KS III that I'm getting, and when my granddaughters are old enough I plan to use the mouslings to introduce them to roleplaying. What I really need are a collection of other such critters like ferrets and badgers and rabbits and such.

 

I also need a collection of similar styled, yet more villainous weasels, and rats and bats and reptiles that can be used as the, well, villains!

 

I'm planning on introducing the granddaughters to Redwall . . .

 

Oh, and while I'm at it, it would be phenomenal to see Roderic Ambermead and Glitter make it into Bones for KS IV.

Rhinos. With saddles.

(It is possible that we already got our wee one this on a baby sized tee.... from The Order of the Stick.)

 

Elephants and mammoths with saddles would also be nice. ::):

So it's not really a Bones I'd like to see but what I think would be awesome would be if late comers like me could have a chance at the Kickstarter sets.

 

I just got into painting so I missed the KS3. I plan on taking part in IV but it's probably 2yrs till I get that.

 

Now I don't think late comers should be able to get all the stretch goals and add ons but it would be awesome to be able to get the core set for a descent price! Especially since the 3rd set hasn't come out yet.

 

I just watch all these unboxing vids for I and II and I don't know if I can wait 2yrs before I get to do the same!

Good news!  The entire point of the Bones Kickstarters are to bring lots of Bones minis to the retail market!  You should be able to find virtually any previously kickstarted Bones mini you want, including stretch goals and add-ons, at your FLGS and sites like Reaper's online store.  And because they're made of Bonesium, they're all available for a fraction of their metal equivalents.  How great is that? ::D:

 

Oh!  And regarding the Core Set from Bones III, Reaper has sold some leftover sets in the past, IIRC.  Once fulfillment is complete, keep an eye out on Reaper's store.  Aside from that, seems like some people like to flip theirs, so you might have some luck on the secondary market (eBay, etc.).

I would like to see a really big "giant snake".  Like "cover of a Conan novel" big.  03676: Giant Snake and 03679: Giant Cobra are both great minis, but I mean something the size of 77183: Frost Wyrm if not larger.  Something to the scale of 77395: Cadirith, Demonic Colossal Spider.  The sort of snake that could make a swallow attack on a character or his horse, and still keep fighting.  Not only would this be a great opponent for general fantasy and pulp use, but, it would be an excellent product for a villain in all those Mousling campaigns, and a lot easier and more useful than releasing a house cat to scale.

And to follow up on this, snakemen to worship it! Both bipedal and not! Maybe a set of mixed torso and bottoms?

I would in fact, like to see a number of big monsters added to the line up.  A big crab, a giant slug or snail, or, a huge, character-gulping fish.  Something big, the size of a dragon or giant, or even as big as 77375: Mashaaf .   Perhaps a roc or a giant, dragon-sized bat.  An enormous bat, possibly with a vampire or lich rider, would be a really cool, original option for a lot of campaigns or for tabletop strategy games.

I like your ideas and want to subscribe to your newsletter!

 

Also, the Roc and bats , please in a flying attack pose.

 

A gigantic snake would be awesome.

I don't mean to be a wet blanket, but "giant" (by 28mm standards) snakes, whales, leviathans, crabs, lobsters, et al. are already readily available at toy stores. What would make them worth the time to sculpt specially and sell at minis prices?

Because of the detail.

 

I have seen toy snakes , those look like..toys...not like the real thing. And those are mostly just too big!

 

Apart from Schleich perhaps, but I like something I can paint up from blank.

 

Otherworld made a giant crab, Reaper made Scuttlebones, so I guess it can be done, and then a little bigger like the Demonic Spider.

Another thought aabout Reaper giant animals vs toys is that Reaper's versions tend to be a little more fantastic than the toys. Like something from a medieval manuscript rather than a modern zoological text.
