Need help finding PC minis.


Miniatures

Liberty's Edge

In short, I am having a difficult time finding minis for my PC's as they are all quite unique.
The party consists of...

*A human male bard, with 1 part shortsword, 1 part whip, 1 part Dragon Disciple
*A half-elf male monk (I've already found some potentials for this one)
*A half-elf Ulfen based ranger with two swords
*A young human male wizard with a cane (this one isn't as difficult as they others)
*A human male rogue, 1 part Chelish nobleman, 1 part archer
*A female gnome (halfling models will work too) from Alkenstar, who uses a giant rifle.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!


A giant rifle? Really? That makes it a little hard. I know there is a halfling/gnome female with a bow.

I would look over the D&D minis from WOTC. They have destroyed the collect-ability of the game and you can buy individual plastics pretty darn cheep. For the gnome look at the Star Wars plastics. I'm betting there are some little rifles toters in there some place.

take one of those, cut off the bow, and superglue on a 99cent from CVS "cowboy and indians" plastic guy's rifle... should be about the size for a giant rifle for the gnome


You might also look into Mage Knight miniatures. I know there are several there with rifles, you might find one to suit.


I assume by cheaper one means "more expensive since they are no longer going to be produced at affordable levels."

The figure is kind of artsy, it's not like the other bowmen. And holding a bow and a rifle are slightly different.

Also, I recommend highly AGAINST Mage Knight having played with the figures as replacement D&D figures. They just don't fit even remotely well in D&D.

Sovereign Court

This should help.

useing that, best i can find for the gnome is the Pinner

Sovereign Court

A search for just "Gun" turned up this figure in the first dozen or so hits.

I suppose if he wanted to find a Half-Dwarven Djinn...

Sovereign Court

I missed the "female" part of "female gnome". Whoops.

At any rate, oddball minis are easier when you can do weapon or head swaps. But Reaper's line of fantasy minis plus their Chronoscope line really opens the door on genres for more unique requests.

If you're willing to make a few modifications to minis, you can get what you want pretty easily.

*A human male Dragon Disciple/Bard, with a shortsword and a whip

Start by grabbing Reaper 500008 (Jack Harrison, Adventurer) for its whip. Attache the whip hand to the body of Reaper 3065 Kellen, Nobleman Adventurer.

*A half-elf male monk (I've already found some potentials for this one)

Reaper 3169 Peruhain

*A half-elf Ulfen based ranger with two swords

Start with Reaper's 2295 King Jurgen Heyerdal (out of general production: order him from Reaper) and switch his hammer for a sword.

Alternatively, use 3362 Kjell Bloodbear.

*A human male rogue, 1 part Chelish nobleman, 1 part archer

14401 Crusader Ivy Crown Archer

*A female gnome (halfling models will work too) from Alkenstar, who uses a giant rifle.

2676 Female Halfling Thief The crossbow is separate: Switch out a gun.

This is not entirely true, yes there are some that might not, but many of them do work perfectly well in D&D.

I mean in the D&D grid system.

I carefully cut them off of their bases and place them on smaller ones. A couple minutes' work and the problem is solved.

The bond between figure and base can vary greatly.

Sometimes the glue is brittle, and the figure snaps off easily, sometimes, it's more of a weld, and must be cut.
As always, try to keep the figure clamped, take care and cut away from yourself.

For bases, I usually use Games Workshop slottabases, since I have so many to hand, and they will match the others.

I answered the version of the thread in Advice, but wanted to note you can just buy Jack Harrison's whip, not the whole model--when you look on the model, click on the "puzzle piece" icon and you can select just the sprue with the whip.


Mage Knight and Horror Clix are great sources for cheap minis. Rebasing them is pretty simple. Snorter's advice is really good though as it wouldn't be hard to stab or cut your hand while removing the old base.
