I would love mini's of dead adventurer's.  I don't mean undead, I mean laying on the ground after having violently sloughed off this mortal coil.  I have mini's of generic dead townsfolk, but not of dead wizards, dead fighters, dead paladins, dead rogues, etc.  Actually, in a perfect world, I'd like a slain version of every creature ever created.  Monty Python said it best, "bring out your dead!".  Thanks.

This is an awesome idea, hopefully they make these!

I don't know anything about the Monster Blood Tattoo series, but it's true there's a fashion lacuna. Chronoscope has Victorian and modern (and future!) models, while Dark Heaven and Warlord have prehistorical through medieval and renaissance fashions, but minis dressed in styles from 1600s-1830s European fashions are in short supply except for witch-hunters and pirates. Bring on the powdered wigs and huge lapels! Enormous collars and highwayman hats! 

Note: come to think of it, a few Pathfinder minis come pretty close to the mark...Visbaronetness Delour, the Grey Gardener, and Quinn the Investigator would not be out of place in a Scarlet Pimpernel tale. 

 

Pathfinder minis do come close. The other figures I think fit are the Duskwardens of Dreadmere because of the coats and hats.

Monster Blood Tattoo has a very particular aesthetic. I suppose you could call it lacepunk but in some ways this would fall short. The writter/artist DM Cornish blends different styles into the look of his characters. Sometimes they are partially nude or may wear skin tight clothing and sometimes they have many layers of clothing. And sometimes they may be bare chested, but have heavy armor covering their thighs and legs.

Something that has a very MBT feel to it is the miniseries Gormenghast. The costumes have some non european influences and they seem to borrow styles from the renaissance to Victorian time periods.

I would like to see Reaper do the Eternal Champions from Michael Moorcock's books.  Also, we need more monster Champion style figures.

I second the motion!

So.. Was discussing my plotted Q3 Seasonal entry for RCL (I'mma do Innkeeper Sophie for Oktoberfest), and Andi says, 'she should have a couple of Oktoberfest pretzels hanging off one of her wings, and gingerbread hearts off the other, in addition to food and beer' (I'm not sure about the gingerbread, but apparently, Oktoberfest pretzels are HUGE; easily a three-person pretzel).

Who do I have to bribe to get .. well, Not!Oktoberfest Sophie? >.>

I know it exists already in metal but:

The gargoyle from this set - just him. Maybe in a 3-pack?

I have about 20 of him - I get more every Reapercon, and I cherish them all deeply. I love the many metal gargoyles that Reaper makes - but the reality is, they're all MASSIVE compared to the size I want for my games. Gargoyles are only medium-sized, and, more than that - they're not infrequently fought in groups of 10-20! So having a tall, broad-winged figure that towers over the party makes it tricky to use them in-game. Meanwhile this guy fits neatly on a 25mm base, doesn't overhang it or tip over, and is a one-piece that's super easy to paint... Basically the perfect mini. Plus it makes a great imp, too... If we could get, say, a 3-pack for 10.99, I'd be thrilled to be able to recommend it to people...

I know Reaper already makes a "gug, eldritch horror" in the Chronoscope line (and it's duplicated in the bones line), but I'd like to request a Pathfinder-style gug in the Pathfinder Miniatures metal line based on the Pathfinder artwork for the gug. 

I can't look at the current Reaper gug without thinking it looks... well...  a little vulgar.

I'd like to see the Anhurian Command minis as individuals. I'm needing some extras of one of them beyond the rest there (The drummer one matches up quite well with the Deep Cuts 2 pack of smaller ballistas)
