What is something you want a mini of that you can't currently find?

 

A goliath paladin or cleric. Got the Wizkids new goliath fighter duo-pack, still look too barbarian-like (has next to no armor, a bit of mail armor would go a long way towards accommodating class differentiation).

 

Same with minotaur.

I admit I haven't really looked around that much, but I generally find there aren't that many unarmed combat miniatures in a variety of styles or fantasy races.

 

Be it Oriental martial arts (kungfu, aikido, taichi); boxers; thug brawlers; wrestlers (pro-wrestlers, greco-roman, sumo); etc. Everything MMA.

 

Now picture a sumo elf; Muay Thai ogre; Lucha Libre half-orc; or a halfling Judoka that just flipped you on your back.

sumo elf would be hilarious just to get a very fat elf.

 

my current pathfinder game has a lucha half-orc!

What's the most unusual thing you've built terrain out of?

 

When I was a grade school boy, for added texture in one of my project/dioramas, I added uncooked oatmeal to the Plaster-of-Paris. 

It worked quite well as I recall. Of course I am recalling something I made a LONG time ago.

You might want to look into Rumbleslam from TTCombat. There are various rasslers of all races in that one. One I've had my eye on is Gobbo

- Minotaurs that have a bit more in the way of armour or clothing on, like Oathsworn's minotaur from the Heroines In Sensible Shoes line.

- A 28mm scale Haunt CAV (although the rumoured Starhawk is also acceptable)

- Monstrucker minis for Infinity would be nice....

Nobody makes ordinary fairy tale Giants. Everybody makes giants that fit certain very specific game archetypes.

 

A giant that is not a Something—Giant: Fire ..., Storm ..., Cloud ..., Hill ..., Stone ...,  etc. None of those.

My latest obsession that just hit me this week is finding old, old Games Workshop MkI Terminators, aka Saturnine Armour Pattern. I really love the retro look, and I want a squad of them. There's extremely few of them on eBay, and the price of a single one is........significant.. Hoping for a lucky find one of these days.

Yoda!

 

Wow, he used to be ripped when he was younger. Must have been an underground Jedi fighting ring.

Mantic has one for their KoW line. Product listing literally is "giant." And he's a big one too, almost 19 cm tall (near 7.5 inches), with a few head options. Granted, he's not at a Bones giant price-point, but there you go. The style reminds me of the giants from that Jack the Giant Slayer movie.
