Chronoscope Minis we'd like to see, #4

Recommended Posts

I think superhero minis suffer the same fate as sci-fi minis, if there isn't a specific setting for them they kinda get ignored.

Not that many, actually, and all very specific. Unless you are playing the Legion of Reaper super hero campaign they're not very useful.

Old Glory also has a bunch of superhero game miniatures in their SuperFigs line. ISTR that Lance & Laser had a superhero miniatures line at one point as well, but that's been quite a while.

I would like to see the IMEF expand as well.  There are a decent number of troops, and a good selection of special and squad weapons, with the flamer and the heavy rotary cannon.  How about some missile launchers or grenade launchers?  There is a medic, how about a comms trooper?  How about a hand scanner, ala the Colonial Marines from Aliens?  The Bulldog is awesome, and I am dying for it to be released in Bones.  How about some arm or weapon options for the Bulldog?  The autocannon is nice, but a rotary gun, a laser, a missile pod?  And some female troopers would be a good addition.  The sniper is great, but having some front line gals to bulk up the numbers would be great, especially if they had some special weapons options.  How about some stationary guns and teams?  A machine gun nest, a mortar crew, both would be good for building battlefield encounters.  And, should all my other wishes come true, throw in a cameraman (or drone) and a press attache, like from Starship Troopers.  Got to keep that morale up!  Let the folks back home know that the fight against the Kulathi menace is going well!

Seconded, especially if these new IMEF women look like they actually have sufficient arm musculature to lift their equipment. The current lady has arms so skinny, she's either a super-strong cyborg, or its the gun holding her up, not vice versa.

Prisoners.  People in handcuffs.  Guys, and for that matter gals, in prison jumpsuits.  Myriad of uses in dozens of campaigns.  Throw in a prison guard, with a shotgun and a key chain.  Rioting prisoners would also be a great way to expand the line (shiv, molotov, shotgun).

I'm a big fan of superhero minis and the ones at Old Glory look fantastic. The only thing I'd be worried about is the heroic 33mm scale for Old Glory. Pretty much everything else I own is 28mm. Any idea if the size difference looks too weird?

To add to the IMEF idea, if some lady troopers get made, please make 'em look like the same unit. The current lady sniper doesn't have the same uniform/armor as the rest of the squad.

Actually, make a few models that have the same style of armor as the sniper, both male and female.....and a Bugbear too. ::D:

I've been looking for an unarmed slasher-type figure, like Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers, but unarmed (to represent a specific NPC in my campaign).  Unarmed with prison jumpsuits would work for that too if painted differently (as jumpsuits but not prison jumpsuits) and the figure was a bruiser type.

Interchangeable hands with weapon types, sure.

Maybe heads, too. Paper bag mask slasher!

Office workers. Both male and female with or without briefcases. As long as they are in business attire.

Mounted cowboys, optionally removable from their horses and western styled saddles.
