Chronoscope Minis we'd like to see, #4

The Bones Black Build-a-Pirate set - a set of generic pirate crew bodies with sprues of assorted arms and heads - is great stuff:  a great way to put together a quick mob of generic mooks for tabletop gaming, and they're kitbash-friendly besides!

 

I'd love to see much more of that sort of thing, but for Chronoscope in particular, I'd love to see a Bones Black Built-a-Suit kit in a similar vein: 

 

A handful of generic modern suit-and-tie-guy bodies, with a sprue of different suit-and-tie-guy heads (with one or two in shifty shades) with bland, smug, or threatening faces, and arms with briefcases, cups of coffee, cell-phones, handguns....  Are they modern townsfolk?  Mobsters?  Spies?  Corporate security? Men-in-Black?  White-collar criminals?  Megacorp CEO villains?  You decide!  Kitbash them with zombie heads, sci-fi gear, magic paraphenalia, hat-heads, and more, and they cross genres rather nicely, since the basic suit-and-tie hasn't changed very much in well over a century, and doesn't change much in cyberpunk and other sci-fi genres either....

 

Build-a-Suit!

Can we get a US WW2 officer that just has a pistol? I know we have the one guy in the coat (Colonel Drake?) but one in a helmet. It would also be nice to use for conversions for the weapons pack.

And more motorcycles, please? I mean, I know we've mentioned bikers but I'd love some more sci-fi/cyberpunk ones.

I may have brought this up before, but how are there no firefighter minis yet? They have nice helmets, gloves, boots, and sweet axes--already great for a modern adventurer. 

 

Fire hooks, Kelly Tools, heavy gear, jaws of life, etc.  Lots of fun stuff.

Evil. Skinny and fat. With evil teddy bears, baseball bets, sledgehammers, chains, etc.

Some kind of abandoned traveling circus setting.

 

Suggestions for a Creepy Carnival themed Bones expansion have been getting quite a few upvotes over in the "Bones You Would Like to See" thread.  And, I just re-watched the '80s Disney(!) movie Something Wicked This Way Comes a few days ago; Dark's Pandaemonium traveling circus is as scary now as it was back then - I definitely would like to see something like this, especially in Bones (there are a few evil clowns and magicians and such in Reaper's catalogue of metal minis, but a Bones expansion full, as a sort of mini-setting, would be awesome!)

 

Some metal Reaper figures that would fit the circus theme well, which would be great to have in a creepy circus Bones expansion:

Clown with "K"! Never saw those because of the "K".
Pretty cool linked figures (thank you!), but a bit different from what I had in mind.  I'm thinking more of like The Offspring - Coming For You music video, but more brutal evil?  Can't think of a better description!  If I'll think of a better reference, I'll post it here.

 

Cheers! 🙂

Yep, half of those are more normal circus performer types, not creepy at all, by default, though I bet we could do some wonders with the right approach to painting them. 

 

That said, I do especially like the two Killer Klowns, and I really like those zombie miners (who I'm envisioning as zombie carnie workmen, among other things!) 

 

It's definitely a niche that Reaper hasn't filled up yet, and if the Klowns are any indication, Reaper's sculptors could really hit an evil carnival expansion out of the park.

There is actually a third! https://www.reapermini.com/search/clown/latest/02216 Kosmo, from the Dark Heaven Legends line, a disgusting little creep. Does not have the 'circus' tag for some reason.

I've assembled a mostly-Reaper circus (should show up if you search Circus in the Painting--Show Off forum) and can recommend a few other performers: Devil Girl 50196, Lady Tiger 50169, and FireFox 50041 as acrobats; a pith-helmeted explorer like Dan McDermott (50295) or Jane Porter (50303) for a lion-tamer. Lions are 77341.

I realize this is niche and I've brought it up before, but more Weird West varmint folks. Mole prospector. Possum entertainer. Fox cardsharp. Rat schoolmaster. Badger desperado. Coyote tinkerer (with dynamite, springs, and anvil, of course).
