Hi all. Was hoping you could help me find a mini.
I have a player in an upcoming game of D&D who wants a flying monkey as a familiar.
I'm having trouble finding a good option. I'm surprised how few options there are.
I'm looking for one with feathered wings as opposed to bat wings. And something without a fez. Minimal clothing is okay (a vest or some bracelets) but in general looking for something that's more like a wild animal.
STLs are okay. But physical is better.
Thanks in advance!
I cant find any of my old threads. I used to have links in my signature which doesnt display in mobile, and I'm rarely on a computer and its awkward on a phone (like I havent been able to make it work, but I'm assuming its possible).
I can't search just my topics with an empty search term. So how am I supposed to find things now? How does everybody else do it.
I think a modern can lock this file. I've gotten desktop working better since I posted.
I always have trouble with finishing minis if they take too long. Groups of minis are a frequent struggle for me. What kind of advice do you have to avoid burnout?
I try to mix things up to stave off the exhaustion and tedium. I typically switch off between working on groups of minis, to just doing one at a time. Small minis to big minis. Detailed minis to simple minis. I'll even avoid things that are the same color back-to-back. Anything to help avoid getting sick of painting.
But I have a harder time just getting through a group of minis. I'll try breaking them into sub groups, or just focusing on painting everything of the same color like all of the wood, or all the leather.
Maybe I'm just tired in general, but I'm definitely feeling worn down on my current set, which is a shame because I am excited to see them finished.
What advice do you have?
How do you avoid burnout?
How do you get yourself to just keep painting?

I'm wanting to do a little market research and I'm hoping I can get your help.
For Bones V I sculpted a bunch of kids heroes and their pet companions. These were some of my favorite figures to work on and I'd like to do more. To be very very clear I have NO indication that Reaper will be producing any more of those types of figures and I'm in no way promising to create anything we discuss here. I have no shortage of ideas when it comes to new kid heroes but I'm wanting to see what types of figures people would want if hypothetically I decided to create more.
I really like the idea of doing brother/sister sets, offering male and female options for particular races or themes. Simply from a design perspective it allows me to explore an idea more fully. Again, this is purely for my personal side projects and fun, not related to any official releases. That said, it's nice to know what the thoughts were about the ones I've already made and what holes people may want filled within that genre.
My questions are:
•What did you like/love/hate/ignore about the kid heroes from Bones V?
•What themes or types of kid heroes would you be interested in?
•What purpose would they serve for you? Just fun to paint? Have kids who want to play but struggle to find a figure that represents them? Using them as stand ins for hobbits/halflings/gnomes or other vertically challenged races?
•What themes would you like to see explore in this context? Steampunk, modern, arthurian, more "random fun" types, traditional villager or starting hero types? Dragonkin, Genasi or other less popular fantasy races?
Anyone have any useful leads on a set of elves in tribal garb? I'm specifically looking for elves that would fit in a jungle, tropic, or coastal setting. Not looking for heavy armor. If there's some gender diversity in the set that's even more ideal.
I could kit bash if needed, but trying to avoid that. Also looking for things that would fit well in scale with Reaper Bones' offerings.
Have I made this easy enough for you all?
