Okay, now I'm thinking: Reaper really needs a "gas mask pack."  :D  It seems there are so many minis that could be converted with a bunch of gas masks and a bit more brass and verdigris in the paint scheme, and -- presto! -- instant steampunk/dieselpunk.  Awesome airship in the background, too!

Jordan, you should be able to easily make gas masks using putty for the mask, thin wafers of plastic tubing (Evergreen or Plastruct) for the eye pieces, and thicker pieces of tubing for the filter canister(s). The tubing comes in a wide variety of sizes so you pick the size appropriate to your figure(s). Fill the eye pieces with putty, paint, and glosscoat for the tinted lenses. Scoop out the putty inside the eye pieces (or don't put it in there in the first place), paint the eyes and surrounding face, then fill the eye pieces with clear epoxy putty or one of the clear fluids used for making glass in airliner windows or tank periscopes.

 

X2 on the airship.

I actually used a Tamiya kit of miliatry gear which included a gas mask, and converted a reaper kobold so he looked like he was wearing it. I'd totally love actual bits from reaper though, like that as well!

 

@ Froggy - that is awesome! I LOVE them!!

      36" from tip to props, The Rim Greaper is a VSF/Steampunk Victorian SciFi flying ironclad ship built from a plastic aircraft carrier toy.
       
      In-universe, flight is achieved by electrically charging the Unobtanium plating on the hull, the arc cannons on deck work off the same principle, and the Aetheric Lance on the prow works because the Story Says It Does.
       
      She was comissioned by Her Majesty's Royal Navy, constructed by barrister-turned shipwright Sir Andrew St. George, and assisted by the local Mechanaether Guild.
       
      Construction took about three weeks of evenings, and painting took maybe five evenings. My son helped a great deal with the concepts and making sure it was a playable surface. The top comes off and attaches to the hull by magnets. The bridge fits inside the superstructure.
       
      The construction is detailed here:  http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?%2Ftopic%2F68075-sir-andrew-builds-an-aeronef%2F

      Dr TG Pendrake presents his latest experiments in Aeronef armor plating. If only suitable minions** were available for hire!

      Lord Andrew St. George, Barrister turned shipwright, ca 188--:
       
      Surveying a recovered steel hull from one of Her Majesty's Less Well-fated Projects:
       

       
      He has just received the daunting task of retrofitting the hulk for unobtanium-powered flight.

       
      It appears to have been a freighter of some sort.  The traditional steam engines are not present, though plenty of mounting space exists for their addition.

       
      ...as well as a sizeable cargo hold.

       
      The interior has the rudiments of partitioning, though he can already see much of it has to go.

       
      ...and the local Mechanaether Guild is none too happy.

       
      Here they discuss the previous deck configuration - possibly landing strips for smaller Aeronef craft?

       
      ...though structures remain on its underside that could be reused for the bridge and other desiderata.

       
      Time and budget permitting, the "HMAS Leviathan" (provisional name) could be airborne by 1910.  Who knows?

      Sometimes the paint gets away from you and you have to call them done before it gets any worse.
