Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

Is there a site listing for places/games that have a lot of extra stock of miniatures? I've found it difficult to locate models that are plentiful (lots of out of print games and newer games with limited stock). I can keep searching by hand, but it's pretty rough.

It's hard to tell exactly what you're looking for, but trollandtoad has a ton of minis (even for many OOP games and mini lines).

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

abPrices is also another good resource. You can search the model name for a wide variety of miniatures, and it'll pull up a list of places like TrollAndToad with the quantity and price. I don't believe that the list is exhaustive, but it might be good for getting an initial impression of the quantity that you're looking at.

If you're just looking for miniatures in general, I've found MinisGallery to be very useful. It contains images for many sets (no availability or prices, though, so you'd have to look elsewhere for that), although some like Mage Knight are pretty tough to find now. D&D and Pathfinder minis are generally good places to look, although the older they are the tougher they are to find.

Notably, the above website also contains digital renders for new releases months before they come out. You can always take a look at what will be included in the next release and design something for a sculpt that really catches your eye. Generally, availability will be very good (although Rare figures can be pricy) for a while after release.

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

Thanks for the info. Mostly just looking for figures in decent quantities in case I felt the need to do an SoV piece at some point. Beyond places like reaper which are print to order until a figure is OOP, I'm not really sure where to look.

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

Hello!
Would anyone be able to help me out with figures for the characters from Waking the Dead?
Guns for the three who aren't doctors would be good, but not necessary. Clothes aren't something to be fussed about, but I'll know if something's wrong (apologies for not being able to be more specific! )

Here they are - sorry for the pics not being the best, slim pickings online, I got the best I could find:

DSI Peter Boyd:


Dr. Grace Foley (psychiatrist):


Dr. Frankie Wharton (forensic pathologist):


D.I. Spencer Jordan:


and DC. Stella Goodman:



Note that I'm perfectly happy to repaint. Modding is also acceptable, but I'm hoping that shouldn't be necessary here.

Thank you so, so much mac122! Those are all just about pitch perfect! Will need painting, but with that, perfect!
Any suggestions for a head-swap for Boyd? That's the only modding I can see these needing (that and a head-swap for Spencer for the sake of no glasses and hair - I can see a John Stewart Lantern working there), they're so good.
Thanks again!

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

How about the head of Aaron Cash for Spencer?

Hair, and I believe beard and mustache.

Aaron Cash - 018
DC Batman

I'll keep looking for an option for Boyd, though the one on the mini isn't too far off.

Thanks, chap!

I've actually found the four figures other than Spencer at one place (comics_wigan) and, browsing through their figure selections, last thing last night, found a different mini to use for Spence and, just now, found a good head for Boyd. So I'm set!
Thank you so much for all your help with this - you've been absolutley bloody invaluable, and it was so kind of you.

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

Quick question; how do the large base figures scale to the heroscape bases? Are they too big? Was looking over some of the Pathfinder stuff and noticed a few interesting pieces that are the larger sizes.

Alot of those games larger bases dont fit on a two hex. Thats why scapers replace them with a peanut base.

Well, I was looking at the peanut base, but I'm doubtful at least one of the figures I'm interested in will fit properly on one. This elemental in particular (it is on the larger base and it fills the base entirely);
