Help me find whimsical minis.

Recommended Posts

I am running a dungeons and dragon campaign for my friend and his two grade school age daughters.  I have been looking around for whimsical even silly miniatures to populate the campaign world.   I have already bought a few like Jason Wiebe’s sabertooth pug and the bones flail snail as well as the Grymkin Piggybacks from Privateer Press
 

What are your favorite whimsical or silly miniatures?

Do you have acces to a 3D printer by chance?

There are many files that might suit you.

I don’t  currently have access to a 3d printer. My friend who has one is playing in the campaign so as to avoid spoilers i don’t want to go that route.

I like a number of miniatures from Oathsworn, with my favourite seemingly being the Fennec Fox, but that's because she practically towers over the others at 40mm tall, despite being one of the shortest fox breeds out there.

Lucid eye do a set of cartoony dungeon crawler minis. 

Oathsworn miniatures do Burrows and Badgers, not entirely whimsical but still, rabbits with swords.. 

Warploque minis are all done in a cartoony style. 

Northumbrian Tin Soldier are also worth a look.

I am definitely a fan of the darksword animorphics.  I also have a small force of the GW goblins.  The others i will have to check out.  

 

Considering Reaper has a bunch of promotions starting this week what do you feel are Reapers best offerings?

As far as Reaper goes, the mouslings fit the bill. There's a fair amount of just regular animals, too, although a lot of them aren't what you'd call traditionally cute. They're just... animals. Maybe some of the gnomes will do the trick? They're not all explicitly silly but they are gnomes.

Mouselings are great. I bought my 8 year old niece a learn to paint kit for her birthday this weekend and she got some mouselings, war pugs and a princess. There are some great chibi figs in the new small world bones, inspired by the comics for the Bones 4 Kickstarter. There are also the old horror chibis in bones. The mushroom men in the Miniature monday kit look pretty cute too. I think they're properly called fungoids.
