Alright, I've got a brilliant idea. It may sound crazy, and people might react to it, but hear me out:

 

Dinosaur Sophie. :B):

Why.

How about Sophie riding a dinosaur?

This is better.

Prehistoric Legend Sophie?

Yes. Riding a t-rex (with or without howdah) with a pack of velociraptors. 

At that point, you might as well go crazy.

I think my ideal Chronoscope expansion would be something like...

 

Part 1:

3 WWII American Infantry (50075)
1 Sgt. Mack Torrey (50120)
3 WWII German Soldiers (living versions of 50020)
1 Nazi officer (living version of 50116)
1 Ruined stone wall (new sculpt, large)

 

Part 2:

3 WWII American Infantry (new sculpts)
1 Machine gun on tripod (new sculpt, small)
1 Mortar (new sculpt, small)
2 German heavy weapons operators (new sculpt)
1 Nazi officer (living version of 50221)
2 Low sandbag walls (new sculpts)

 

Part 3:

3 French Resistance Fighters (new sculpts)
3 WWII German Sentries (new sculpts)
1 Gestapo agent (new sculpt)
1 German sniper (new sculpt)
1 Minefield sign (new sculpt, small)
1 Bomb crater (new sculpt, large)

 

Total: 29 figures

 

Plus why not a few thematic add-ons?

- Concrete pillbox with removable top ($14)
- German Panzer IV + separate turret ($12)
- American M4 Sherman tank + separate turret ($12)
- German staff car, driver, guard, and Nazi official ($14)
- Ruined French chateau set + 3 bystanders/villagers ($18)

Given the competition they'd face from all the other 28mm WWII manufacturers I think the odds of this are EXTREMELY low.  I like the idea, but I highly doubt they'd do it.

Random question; I know that people were complaining the dragon revealed at reapercon was a pathfinder white instead a dnd white, when all the other dragons revealed were dnd standard. Now that the white has been revealed, is it now a dnd design? I haven't seen anyone say whether or not it was since I was pretty busy yesterday.

There’s like, a bazillion other companies that do all sorts of historical armies. I’d rather see them do nazi zombies to sell to the CoD fanboys.

No, it’s still the pathfinder design.

It's kind of a hybrid.  It has a dorsal head crest horn, but doesn't appear to have the membrane below it.  It still has the circumference of spiky horns, which is most-reminiscent of Pathfinder's White.

Alright, thanks, I was wondering! I'm not too familiar with the design requirements

I mean, it can be whatever sort of dragon you want it to be. My husband likes the dnd dragon designs, but that doesn’t mean I pay much attention to them when I’m painting.

For the WW2 stuff, I think taking the Weird War 2 tack would be a better fit for Reaper.

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
