Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

Recommended Posts

I would love to see some scenic dead or sleeping bodies, various races. Slumped over some rocks, propped against a fallen tree, laying half out of water/mud/quicksand, sprawled out on cobblestones, laying on a cot or bed, or slumped in a gutter. A body in a plain wooden box that is not all skellified yet.

I'd love a 1:8-1:10 gnoll bust, say of the Reaper of Kargir... In Bones Black ^_^

 

... Or pretty much any of the Koborlas figures too, theyd be nice for such I figure. 

 

That would put them at around a 4" bust wouldn't it?

Probably been mentioned before, but here's my vote for several treasure/doo-dad sets.  Things to put on shelves and tables, or to add to existing minis.  Like the current adventurer gear, weapons and musical instrument sets. 

 

Armor pieces (Separate bits and armor stands)

Books and tomes (LOTS of books, papers, scrolls, book stand, podium)

Magical implements (Crystal ball, mortar and pestle, burner, alchemy gear (in clear?), summoning circle, bottles and jars, piles of components)

Backpacks and saddle bags (Various backpacks, bags, pouches, wine skins, saddle bags

Kitchen/Tavern/Feast implements ('nuf said)

Tools Of The Trade (Tradesmen's tools for carpentry, smithy, etc.)

Farm set (Plow, hand tools, feed bags, baskets of produce/eggs, chicken coop, rope, saddle and stand, stable bits)

Cross post from the Chronoscope you'd like to see thread:

 

A biker on a motorcycle. By which I mean guys with long hair, beards, and leather jackets riding Harley Davidsons. If they were modular with 2 different torsos and a sprue of three different heads, you could have a small gang that all look unique.

Oh yeah, some freshly dead corpses would be grand. They don’t even need bases. Sure, one that’s laying on a pile of rubble has a “base” of sorts, but treat this stuff more as scatter terrain. Just a body slumped into a seated position (as if he collapsed against a wall as he died), another sprawled out. A sprawled one with a detached limb (sculpt the “torn” ends of the limb, both on the body and the limb itself). Some bodies with obvious wounds, others without.

Mummified and skeletal corpses wouldn't be an unwelcome addition, either. 

 

I do see a little of that sort of thing come up all the time in RPG adventures, where the party find the remains of dead adventurers and the like:  they tend to be clues to traps, or contain treasure (basically, a variation on treasure chests), remains that suddenly spring to life as undead, or they might be a sort of trap (one adventure I read a little earlier this week but haven't played yet had a mummified corpse in a room infested with giant mushrooms - the corpse is infested with fungi, and if disturbed, has a chance of infecting the adventurers!).  Dead characters in precarious locations can represent quest goals, too ("find out what happened to McGuffin the adventurer, rescue him if possible, and if he's dead, bring back his ring as proof....")

 

I'm also reminded of the dying adventurer from early in the original Diablo video game... a freshly dead corpse could just as easily represent a dying character to be healed or rescued, or again, a quest goal to get information or rewards from.  A "dead" character in a relaxed, resting pose might also stand in for a sleeping guard, for example.....

 

Wargamers and diorama-makers of course can make use of both fresh and skeletal/desiccated corpses as scatter terrain.  Or, copses of all sorts can be integrated by modelers into dynamic bases - picture, for example, the traditional Frazettaesque muscle-bound hero on a mound of orc corpses, surrounded by an unstoppable horde of his enemies?

I'd like to see a siege engine crew set that fits a more generic fantasy theme for trebuchets, ballista, catapults, and such (Having some of those in bones packs would be nice, the WizKids lines have done cannon and catapult). A more advanced set for cannons and such as well would also be nice.

 

Another thing I'd love would be for some of the multipose metal packs to have other sculpts added in. Things like the various Anhurian grunt sets, perhaps with Bones Black I wouldn't mind fewer in a pack to have the other sculpt the metal sets have with one of each...or even in classic bones material. Same with getting an elite guard and the command set...something that could make them into an army or skirmish force that doesn't quite have the clones issue or the heavier cost of going for metals mixed into it. Another rider or two mixed in wouldn't hurt.

It would be cool to see them in a few different races, too.  Dwarf Crew, Human Crew, Orc Crew, Halflings piggybacking to reach the rope to get the trebuchet reloaded...

One of the big things with a lot of games is that kitbashing a war machine is far easier than getting required crew for one...

More familiars (love the ones from bones I to add to bases of other miniatures) for more variation :).

 

Also: more female miniatures. In general i always have trouble finding a good choice for female characters. More variation would be great :). Also for different races ^^

Dead townsfolk. Not torn apart and gruesome, just bodies. Minis/markers that could be placed on the table to represent a party coming up to a sacked village/town, wilderness encounter/campsite, etc. 

 

Horses, Cattle, Goats, Pigs, Chickens, etc to help "populate" a town during a game, or a diorama. Horses with and without saddles. And maybe some dead horses to add to the dead towns people? Maybe dead with and without saddles so it could represent the town guard hearing the immenent attack and getting suited up and ready for battle, but they were over run? 

 

 There might already be some minis that can be used to represent these things, but I have not seen them.

Perhaps a thing with a lot of skulls and bones, not a single big pile, but a lot of them to be put into things and for basing options.

In these pre-Bones 6: Bones to be Wild days I want to put forth another request for superbeings. Generic supers with capes, alternate heads, and power effects all optional.

This, but new sculpts. And some matching werewolves that aren't as big as the current ones.
