I really like how one of the Salamanders has a Diplocaulus head.

 

Interestingly they don't seem to share any consistent aesthetics with each other (apart from being amphibian). I am going compare the other 3 to the Top one.

 

Diplocaulus: fur loincloth same as Top (different styles)

Licking: metal pauldrons same as Top.

Bottom:  Same shin wraps as Top but mirrored.  Same necklace and bottles as Top. Same beads as Top

Good looking bugbear and newt sculpts, nice to see figures in groupings that can be used for encounters. 

 

 

I understand that to make a figure look female that certain anatomy has to be exaggerated.  I don't mind that. I do wish they'd get the overall shape right.  Anyone who has looked at a woman (and they're everywhere, so no excuses) can clearly see the proper shape.  It's not a grapefruit, or a melon....

Heck yeah.  Excited for those bugbears. Absurdly huge weapons aside Reaper bugbears are my favorite take on the model and I’m all for doubling my model variety.

You can probably find a 3D printing file for free and pay significantly less in whatever 3D printer materials you use, then paint it exactly to your liking.  Some of those official paint jobs leave a lot to be desired. My first mini I painted (the skeleton from Reaper's own Learn to Paint kit) looks a lot better than a lot of the current Wizkids (and older 3.x era WotC) prepaints

all the 3d print astral dreads dont look good IMHO.  

 

Where is the price for the astral? im searching but its not coming up for preorder.     That is higher than i would have liked but ive always preferred cooler models than more.  And since i mainly just collect monsters, thats quite easy to manage.   Get a few monsters a year to add, and thats good. Ive still got a backlog from 20 years ago + 😄

 

Like i wouldnt trade my CMON Chthulhu for an entire kickstarter. For me, its worth more than 100 'regular' models.  Same with something like the Forgeworld Chaos dragon, etc.

MOD VOICE:

 

 

Drop the conversation about boob plate, female armor or lack thereof,  over sexualization or anything 

else along those lines. 

 

The issue has been brought to Reaper's attention. Pending some sort of official response,  please let the issue lie for now.

Nothing has changed in the 2 and a half weeks since I posted this.

 

While important, this is also a contentious topic that has led to fighting in the past, which is why we're being harsh about it now. 

 

Posts hidden as necessary.

 

 

Talking about wanting more female miniatures is fine, just please be careful where the discussion goes.

I wonder if the new Burtz will be used as Klarg, the first boss in "Lost Mines of Phandelvar" as much as his previous version was:

I'm really excited about Tonk, as well.  I'm all for more Monstresses, especially when they're not the sole caster of the group
