I would love to see a 1:1 scale life-sized fairie dragon, and a Norse expansion complete with a viking longship with changeable figureheads(Raven, Dragon, Wolf, etc.)

+1 for Norse expansion.

A RETRIEVER. Giant mechanical spider demon things from the demonweb pits. they were a big part of the latest drizzt trilogy

 

DEEP GNOME with prosthetic mining pick and hammer for hands please. (Based on a character from legend of drizzt-exile)

 

SASSY OCTOPUS'S in different poses like guarding treasure or hiding amongst a scenic base, or wielding shipwreck debris like a knight or fighter. Maybe one stealing items from a mermaid

CELTIC MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES. i think the MORRIGAN in particular could be an amazing sculpt. But a liytle set of the tuatha de danon could be something special.

 

 

A hevily armored DWARF BATTLERAGER, no weapons just lots of jagged spiked armor

 

GUAN YU/GENERAL QUAN. a well known iconic figure. Im sure itd sell well as a 28mm figure, blown up to a bigger scale and modeled like a statue, or as a bust.

 

A GIANT TREASURE CRAB. Like from moanna except scary

 

A HALFLING WANNABE KNIGHT RIDING A PONY/MULE

 

A GIANT RIDABLE DRAGONFLY,

After Bones V, I'd love to see Reaper branch out even more into terrain.  They make great stuff!

 

Just because I wanted "MOAR" but wasn't feeling creative enough to actually come up with examples the other day:

 

A bit of natural terrain like trees and rocks would be great.  As would campsites.  The Yeti temple was neat, but a similar and more generic cave entrance would be a lot more versatile.

 

Festival tents and market stalls/troughs. 

 

Farm stuff- fencing, hay bales, maybe even some rows of crop.

 

Town square fare- sign posts, job boards, town crier platforms or stages (in fact, an encounter with a traveling theater troupe would be fantastic!)

 

A smaller wooden bridge.

 

Statues and fountains.

 

Hear me out- city walls.  Now, I do have my own that I've made, but Reaper could make a pretty fantastic wall/gate/tower set.

I'd like to see Sophie the Sage re-done in a slightly larger size in Bones USA or Bones black.. I don't feel that original Bones material really worked well for that sculpt..

Thieves guild, like RP did back in the day, a juicy selection of Thieves 4 or 5, in masked readying a ambush with a guild master.

 

Carnival performers, once again RP did one years ago that is dated, With that new D&D Feywild book coming out, sooner that better  

 

Vampire spawn, you have lots of singles Vamps and two spawns now, but a 5 mooks minions to serve the "Master" would be great.   Vampire heads with with wings.  

A giant bat that the master can ride and fly on would be cool, and not so giant bats for support.

 

City watch, about 5 to 6 figures with clubs, halberds, "Big" crossbows. use the "Spanish helmet"  You want to impress PC's that the watch means business, have the watch show up with massive crossbow.  

 

A Dragon Rider 

 

Mounted knights or men at arms, this is tricky, since Perry Brothers has great kits

 

Zombie line is kinda weak, for fantasy, I think you have more zombies for Chronoscope then Fantasy

 

More Demons, you have a lot of singles, but Barbed demons or devils , or Bearded devils, troops types. Spine devils, Manes. keep in mind that sooner or later WOTC will do redo Planescape. 

 

More themed sets, with scenery, like an Idol of Morlock in a siting and then attacking stance, add any of the sets mentioned above.  For instance: the Thieves Guild pack of Figures(5) and a terrain scene, with additional enemy's attacking and some McGuffin, a alter or treasure pile   

 

 

 

 

Trends, you know the industry, But with the trend of small skirmish games from GW and star grave and frost/mordhiem

On the top of my personal wish list:

 

-Fairytale-themed set for games that have more of a lighter genre. Can dig into some nursery-rhyme-inspired figures, and other light-hearted, whimsical creatures and heroes.

-Nobility/Courtly intrigue miniatures/set. Dashing nobles, princes and princesses, masquerade, musicians, etc. Something to really lean into a game of high intrigue, romance, or just simply have some good upper class character options.

-Beasts/polymorph miniatures to fill in some of the more common animals PCs polymorph into, and maybe some other random fun beasts not yet in the Reaper catalog. Giant eagle/owl, rhino, whale (maybe orca instead of blue whale for scale), etc.

-Keep up on sets that hit different mythologies around the world. Loved the Daimyo and Greek Odyssey sets, and looking forward to bringing in more diversity into my collection.

Player characters: 

- Beardless Male Human wizard in a classic robe and pointy hat

- Male Dwarven Druid. A less aggressive stance than SKU 03216 and without the silly antlers

- Uncommon class/race combinations, like Dwarven or Goliath spellcasters or Gnomish barbarians

- Loxodon Elephant-folk in multiple classes.

Tortle Turtle-folk in multiple classes.

 

Beasties:

- A big octopus or squid that looks like it's "standing" like a bipedal creature, in the style of The Kraken from Final Fantasy I

Fierce dire/giant versions of regular animals that are common in low-level adventures

- A large "turtle demon", basically Cagnazzo from Final Fantasy IV

 

General:

- Nordic themed characters and monsters to go with the Bones V "Greek Odyssey" set and the existing Egyptian themed figures.

Now that Reaper has dabbled with offering small units of like troops in Bones 5, I'd like to see them expand on the idea and offer some sort of Army or Platoon Expansion in Bones 6

 

They could use existing figures, like the Anhurians perhaps,  and offer each troop type: swordsman, spearman, crossbowman, in a unit of 12 and add a new special officer sculpt to each unit. Then add a unit of 6-9  Anhurian Cavalry, and lastly add a special mounted officer to act as over all commander.  Maybe even add the commander in both mounted and dismounted variants. 

 

Then they could also do an Orc version of the same thing using existing Orc sculpts with the addition of dedicated officer figures.

THIS!  So Much This.

And now that we have the B5 siege engines, give us some Anhurian siege engine crews. 


Do it for Chronoscope, too.  There are enough IMEF and NOVA Corp figures to build a respectable skirmish force, or even a small army, but there are so many other nice sculpts in Chronoscope that would be cool to have units of.
