Forgotten Realms has saurials, and some of the upcoming figures seem to fit them nicely.

What game systems that are built for mini's are about anthropomorphic dinosaurs, there may be a rifts or palladium setting for them but those would be very small niches. A wushu based set for LOT5R, or Kara Tur is great but what games have Dino People? broccoli an add on that those that want the dino's could spend the money for them, awesome. But who is going to use them in a game? For me they would sit in a bag in a box after being painted not used, while the other pieces would just be waiting for the players to go to Kara-Tur.

I will!

While I understand your frustration with them, and that's cool, because all figures won't appeal to all people;  I just wanted to point out that not everyone here plays D&D/RPGs.  There are any number of games where you could easily use Dino People.  Games such as Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Rogue Stars, and Song of Blades and Heroes to name just a few...  

There are also tabletop wargamers here, and folks who paint just for fun for whom the figures are just fine.

I don't have a need for the samurai tyrannosaurus and triceratops, but now I'm curious if I could work them into a game somehow.

Any DM worth their salt should be able to figure out a use for them. I have faith in your abilities.

MEOW would like to officially apologize to @Pezler the Polychromatic. For the incident When Fluffy [the sabretooth bodyguard] chased you down the street. We know that you escaped by turning into a fire hydrant, and we REALLY ha no idea that the WOOF parade was there...

 

We hope you robes washed out okay...

Think i might get the little Asian elephant at retail, it is the only one I want out of that add on and I imagine it will be less than $12 at retail 

What little elephant? I'd consider the same.

So after goroloth, we're looking at maybe an Asian dragon, and 2 more buildings, one of which is likely to be the 3rd part of the daimyo. I wonder what type of creature or set might come otherwise? I'm not sure any of those will become visible until tomorrow.

Crowley is to blame for all the dinomen!  :D

I mean, I'm probably not, but I'm perfectly willing to accept the praise/blame.

DINO-PIRATES need their own Saturday morning cartoon, with theme song and licensed toy line! :lol:

 

And the theme song will have the tag line, "Bring them on!"

I like it. Sadly Saturday morning cartoons aren't really a thing anymore...

At least someone does!

 

L5R Before Time?  The Multiverse Revenge of Doctor Dinosaur?  Rifts?

 

Do a diorama of these two dinosaurs.  "Your sudden but inevitable betrayal dishonors us both.  This stain can only be cleansed by blood."  Title it something like "Wash watched late night samurai movies again."

Click at your own risk, but if you do, stick around for when they break into song.

My opinion on dinomen, while I could care less for them & other then getting them in the prehistoric expansion last KS, I've yet to buy any or get any with melt credit at ReaperCon. If I were to pick up Damiyo expansion, I'd be a bit disappointed I wouldn't use all of the 50 I spent on the expansion. Thou neither expansion has peaked my interest so far.

 

Thou, I agree, Reaper isn't building this KS just for me & dino men will please someone.

There was once a cartoon called Dino-Riders, but that was people riding dinos, not dinos riding other things.

 

 

Hmmmmmmmmm, dinosaur cowboys..........................

Agree sir but.. Are there that many systems using Dino-men? Between Bones IV and V We have 5 Prehistoric ones, 4 Future dinos, 8 Fantasy and 6 Asian. For one thing people are genuinely concerned that when the other  xpacs drop we will see Dino-men in Togas and Dino-men pirates! I'm still optimistic that we will see Human Samurai in part 3, I will buy this xpac and I LOVEEEEEE bones V. But yeah if I had one request... NO MORE DINO MEN 

 

Not every person looks at minis as mostly interchangeable meeples that as long as they are close enough (for whatever value is ‘ close enough ‘) are good enough - up to the DM who absolutely requires that their minis match up exactly with what they represent and vice versa, in numbers and equipment and everything.

 

For those people ‘a dino-person is a dino-person ‘ isn’t actually true at all - and if they want dino-pirates, well, maybe Reaper will end up cornering the market on saurials for a while....

I'm actually pretty excited for the Dungeon Dwellers expansion. Though parts 2 & 3 fell rather flat, part 1 got me really excited. 

 

I've been begging someone, nay, ANYONE to please for the love of god make plastic Plague Doctor mini's. Just 2 months ago I finished running a module where I needed 10 of them at once, and had several tactical encounters involving them. I would prefer a pre painted version, but I'll paint them myself if needed. At least now I'll have the option to. 

 

Also, the worg-riding goblins are the other big draw for me. I've got about a year to go in the adventure path I'm running for my group, then I plan to run them through Red Hand of Doom.  My goblin army will need a lot more goblin worg-riders than the two I have (and the PPM ones are expensive...)

      A co-author and I have started a venture and would appreciate you checking out our RPG supplement!! This is our first KS project, but I’ve been here on the forums for years. We’ve backed tons of projects and all well-versed in KS.
       
      Little secret…the project is named in homage to my favorite band. 😆
       
      Please scope out our project! See you at ReaperCon.

      They took a long time to come live with this one.......
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      Hello folks! AngerSmash will be launching in Kickstarter on September 15, 2021 and you may now follow the project with this pre-launch link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/uncreatedspace/angersmash-a-game-making-fun-of-your-anger 
       
      But before launching on Kickstarter, I wanted to get some pre-feedback on the game box design that we've come up so far. Please refer to the photo below. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much! 🙂 
       
       
       
      (August 27) Edit: Just finished reading the guidelines, so far I think I might not be violating any rules, except for the gif photo that I've posted here which I've taken down and replaced with a non-moving png 🙂 If I did misunderstand the guidelines please let me know so that I don't do this again. Thank you so much! 
       
      (August 26) Original:
      Hello folks! I'm not sure if this post is allowed and if it's not, I can remove it right away. 🙂 
       
      Just wanted to ask for feedback on the box design of a game that I'm currently developing. Hoping to hear from y'all, most of you guys are pretty experienced in board/card games. Thanks so much! 🙂

      Given I have a few unplayed games sitting on my shelf, my will save has gotten pretty high on these.
