Giant pangolins, and a giant war pangolin.

 

The war pangolin could have a spiky harness and an eye patch (armor would be useless as its scales do the job). The scales would be worn out, but the claws sharpened.

 

A saddle and several goblins or a gnoll riding it would be fun too.

I would just like to note that earlier in the thread I requested sprues full of hats ... which is something that Reaper has already, at 03202.  Whoops!  Maybe I should check first.  :unsure:  They're in my next order.

 

That said, I wouldn't so "no" to more hats.  Allll the hats.

 

Translucent minis: I like the ones you've got now and have purchased all of them (whether via Kickstarter or the store), and I have a request: please stop using colored plastic for these!  When the base color of the mini is pre-set, it really limits what the painter can do with it while still using the transparency.  For example, the Water Wyrd is made of translucent blue plastic.  That assumes that the painter wants to use it as a water creature.  Suppose I wanted to paint it red because it's actually a horrific creature made of sacrificial blood?  I can't really do that, because if you combine the translucent blue plastic with translucent red paint, what you wind up with is purple, which isn't at all blood-like unless your sacrifices were all Klingons.

 

Similarly, all those green ghosts!  What if my spectres are pale blue?  The green material makes that awfully problematic.  I mean, I could always just paint over the whole thing as if it were a normal mini -- but then, what's the point of the translucent plastic?

 

Using plain, clear plastic lets the painter choose how to use the model.  So please consider avoiding colored plastics in future.  Thanks.

I just picked up 2 squads of 5 space mouslings by Gene Van Horne and they are awsome ... but a lil flushing out could go a very long way with them so with modular weapon mixing in mind might I suggest ...

 

 A mousling light attack vehicle , a small reverse trike , 2 smaller wheels/skimmers infront to ether side and a single larger wheel/skimmer to the rear with a single (or double) mousling pilot with his set rising up to meet the rear wheel/thruster with the over head ... modular ... weapon mount, with 2 chunky short range plasma blasters that fit the already in probuction 'mousling heavy' backpack mounts making them interchangeable ...

 

And, a smallish mousling walking tank/mecha ... 2 legs and 2 (or one) pilot , front pilot controlling the short range/melee weapon combos ... a pincher and flamer , a buzz saw and twins hot guns , ect ... the back pilot would control the twin chunky long range ion cannons , again modular mount to the mousling heavy making all 3 chunky twin weapons mountable to all 3 platforms ...

 

And a half cyborg space mousling as well as a psychic space mousling characters could not hurt ether ...

Meditating monks. Male and female, all races. Think like shaolin or Tibetan style monks, unarmed. I’d like some for monasteries in my campaign settings. Maybe one standing on one hand, perhaps some doing other monk like things. Non-combat poses.

Sometimes, it is the simplest things you have the hardest time finding.  There are two that I'm going nuts looking for:

~A wolf.  Not a warg, not a winter wolf, just a plain old medium-base wolf.  You actually have one, but it is only available as part of a set (60181: Adowyn & Leryn (Iconic Hunter & Wolf), and with the Boneyard AFK, there aren't really any other options.

 

~A small humanoid flier.  I regularly need mephits, I regularly need imps, and I regularly need quasits.  They're similar enough that a generic piece could fit any of the three with the right paint job, but absolutely nobody seems to make them (except WizKids for a gazillion dollars on Ebay.)

Half-dragon monk, male and female

 

These can be used for any npc or if people want them to be for their own character that would be great to have too. What I’m looking for is basically just a standard half-Dragon miniature with all the scales but in a monk garb (short or long sleeves) and maybe holding a staff for their weapon

I'd personally like to see Ratling type miniatures, great for sewer adventures.

 

And Wolfen, I get asked for them a lot by my players, and have a hard time finding miniatures.  The reaper warlord ones are cool, but 1 inch based size figures would be awesome (if I remember the warlord ones are larger figures are they not?)
