In case someone didn't link already, they made a special edition one a while ago (http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Special Edition Figures/sku-down/01520)

 

I got him off a 12 days of Reaper so keep your eyes peeled during events like that.

There's also a more simply dressed pirate mousling in the (metal) mousling boxed set. He's got an eye patch, peg leg, bandanna and cutlass.

 

Edit: he's also sold in this trio:

Reaper does have some of these in metal (though the platypus is not dire nor is the bear dropping):

Those look really good. I forget, who sculpted them again?

This is especially funny to me, because I have the previous Agramon (#77112) sitting on my desk slowly getting painted.  The new one looks much more detailed with better wings.  i suspect Reaper has learned a lot about casting in Bones since this one was made.

 

Sorry for Photo taken with Potato and Sir Knott ForScale

Agramon.jpg

 

I have used mine for two very different non-player characters.

 

One is typically closer in appearance to a Victorian clerk than a demon... until he isn't. (Don't tick him off.)

 

The other is a character for a supers game - a hero named Balrog.

 

Balrog operates in the UK - doing good deeds, and rescuing kittens out of trees.

 

In reality he has two souls - one is a young boy that was dying from cancer - and was offered a 'Deal' to survive.

 

The other is indeed a demon from Hell, that has a secret agenda to... do good deeds, and rescue kittens out of trees.

 

He wants out of Hell, and the best way to stay off Hell and Heaven's radar is to, well, play nice with others.

 

And, his plan is working - in part because Lucifer has also taken a leave from Hell - and both Heaven and Hell are too busy looking for Lucifer to waste time on a demon that is doing good deeds, and rescuing kittens out of trees. He will, in the long run, get back into Heaven's good graces, and will be offered a second Choice.

 

(Lucifer, for what it is worth, has just plain quit the game. Heaven? Hell? They can both go hang. He is working as a PI in Boston. (Because it's funny, that's why.))

 

Pretty sure what they mean by 'fit on a 2" base' is just that the original isn't a great fit on a 2" round base.

our games never reach super-extremely high levels of character level, so we never have them face off against the biggest and baddest CR monsters. 

That said, my husband will use small demons, like the ones in the core. We have 2 large demons in bones already, and we've yet ot use them

 

so the demons aren't for us, because we run low-level games starting at lvl 1, with heavy roleplay and story and very slow actual leveling. They never reach the level required to face giant monsters, because by then we usually have to move away and find a new group

I don't know when or where, but I may need to steal some of this someday...

I know how that feels. My current Pathfinder game started at level 1, with lots of investigation and roleplay. We've only just cracked 8 after about 2 years of fortnightly play (with several missed sessions). Also, yay for bones providing a bunch of Pathfinder iconic minis. I've used every single pathfinder goblin that has shown up in Bones.

Yes I have the platy/familiars pack there but I need a dire sized one to show off its ferociousness, a dire komodo would be handy as well.  and yes we need a drop bear in attack position

I totally understand why the old line can't be made and also that it's probably still a little too niche for Reaper. But Mouslings need good villains too!

Mice have lots of predators...

 

I know that so many of us are anxious for a cat-dragon, but really it could be almost any predator: owl (dragon), snake (dragon), even wolf (dragon).

Well it also has to be cute.  Don't forget the cute.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
