Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

Recommended Posts

I play a lot of Dungeons and Dragons, which is what I use my miniatures for. In D&D 5th edition there are two main things that people polymorph their allies into: a T-Rex or a Giant Ape. The T-Rex is covered by Reaper and others, but the only Giant Ape I can find is Kabaka Kwana, Ape Lord (03052), which is available in metal but too expensive. I'd really like a Bones version of that mini.

Bones 4 had 3 different gorilla/great ape miniatures. They're about "large" sized, so I'm not sure how that compares to 5.0. If it's Huge or larger, you I can definitely see a need for a Kong-style monstrous ape.

 

I really want a wide variety of non-barbarian minotaurs. Male and female, minotaur spellcasters, monks, non-evil armored figures, etc. Considering they're becoming a more common playable race, it'd be nice not to have to use HeroForge to get minotaur miniatures.

Supers that are just heroically posed, spandex-clad bodies. Separate sprues that have bare and masked faces, optional capes, and accessories like energy blasts and things. A build-a-super kit.

 

Land Terrapin alternate loads (a whole caravan of them with the same load is unappealing):

Weapons (maybe a mounted gun and gunner for a war turtle)

Foodstuff, possibly incorporating a counter (Taco Turtle franchise rights cost extra)

Bodies, digging implements, a coffin (necroterrapin)

A blank shell that we could create our own loadouts on

I want a roughly "Large" size Cat Dragon, no holiday theme.

I've been in desperate need of guard drakes/ambush drakes for a while and no miniature line has delivered. The closest substitutes are the basilisks and they're not very good ones. I also haven't seen any goliath or genasi miniatures and we need a better range of aasimar/celestials. We could also use some half-dragon miniatures that are actually half-dragons that would be clearly distinctive of dragonborn (tails and chromatic facial features are a huge difference!).

 

Outside of my in-game needs, I would love to see reaper producing more terrain pieces.

Id really like to see

 

03209 skeletal catapult

 

https://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/catapult/latest/03209

 

This is excellent for being converted to bones as its a big bulky piece so not flimsy and wouldn't need remodelling, and as metal its big and heavy and a pain to assemble!

 

There is also a set with crew (though id prefer just the catapult as dont like the crew in the set)

I'd like to see an Asian expansion. I.e. some oni, samurai and ninja, asian merchants and couriers, a pagoda, a junk, and a torii or two

The Bones 4 Core Set included a single winged dragon man / half dragon / draconian, complete with a sprue of hand selections.  This guy is great.  It took me longer to figure out which configuration of hands and equipment to give him than it did to put all the rest of my sets together.  Once he is released for general purchase, I plan on acquiring  a dozen or so more of him, and using them to run a Dragonlance revival for my daughter and her junior high friends.  In that light, I would love to see more winged dragon man options.  Different body styles to represent more dragon variants and colors.  Ones armed with two handed weapons or heavier armor.  Archers in lighter armor.  Ones in robes set up as spellcasters.  Officers.  Females.  Female Officers.  A fully realized range of these kinds of guys.  Also these guys would go great with a few Guardian Drake style minis, as attack beasts, or, as mounts.  Heck, I think you guys could score a win by turning these guys into a whole new Warlord faction.  Who wouldn't want to field an army of badass armored reptilian dragon men, armed to the teeth, complete with spell casters, all of them winged for flight, or at least jump-capable, mounted on flightless drakes the size of elephants, surrounding a dragon who is the leader of the army and the centerpiece of the collection?

I could go for this.  Even if it wasn't a complete army, and just a unit of 5 or 6 figures. 


Overall, I'd love to see some of the more specific races that only have one or two mins now expanded to have at least 4-5 variant sculpts, especially in the Chronoscope line.

 

That would be the Dragonman, the Kitsune, the Centaurs, the non human humanoid skeletons,  the Saproling, any of the mounted figures, the Spikeshell Warriors, to name just a few.

With Bones 5 looming, here are some things I would like to see.

 

Tieflings

Female goblins

Halflings being something besides rogues and some more female halflings

More gnomes

More terrain - trees, carts, etc

Horses and other animals both domesticated and wild

Cat dragon as stated above!

Mystical creatures and fairies, residents of the Feywild

Firbolgs

 

As a DM, these are things that would be useful to me in game. However, I always see hings in the kickstarters that I never realized I needed until I saw it. I can always bend the story to incorporate these new things!

I find myself on the lookout for soldiers/officers in long frock coats, that are not cast in such a way to make weapon swaps/arm reposes nearly impossible. All I've been able to find are 25mm scale revolutionary war figures that are cast with guns in one piece, and I want to arm them with rapiers....

option is the key here
we need more of the uncommon races
alternative hand set with different weapons would help without increasing the amount of necessary sculpts too much

both genders in lightly and heavilly armored version would go a long way

Beastfolk of many variety
Dragonborn
Firbolg/Goliath
Genasi
Tiefling
Warforged (small option too)

I would like to see some Koborlas in the Bones 5 Kickstarter. All of the other factions from Warlord have gotten some love, it’s time for the Lupines to get some.
