Hello Stefan
Maybe with round bases of one inch, but personnaly I would be more interested in a nonpainted set...


non painted sets already exist with Fenryll

the idea, here, is to get something ready to play like dwarven Forge

and i think the bases are better "carré " than round

Tom,

150 euro's is about $197 dollars...not sure what you mean by it cost you 150 euro's for each set, are you saying it costs that much to have them painted?

Also, I agree the bases should be rock-like, like our Lizard men bases...

I would only want to offer them painted, but perhaps different paint schemes?

Stefan,
yes i have to pay about 200$ each set to get these minis
first a bought 2 sets of 3 minis from fenryll and horse with shipping 25 euros
then i pay a friend of mine to transform the minis and paint them &bout 100 euros and shipping
so it is very expensive, but it was a project i had for a long time
and i am not able to transform myself the minis

if a day you could start such a line of painted sets for 60$ each it would have a great success

Stefan, these minis are from Fenryll
there are copyright
if you want to have a project with this idea, you will have to contact Fenryll from France and Franck, my friend who did the transformations

it is more simple to start new minis and the global idea
ask Sandra Garity to make the minis for instance

Yes, it would be best to make them from scratch, also, as I have my own ideas...perhaps now that D&D mini's are no more, I might revisit the making of Miniatures...limited edition...

So this is not actually a product line in development, it is a personal project undertaken at great expense that potentially infringes on Fenryll's copyrights already.

Only two companies that I know of (from this thread) currently offer the multiple-figures-of-the-same-character sets. One company sells three figures of the character in different outfits, and one company sells four poses of the character wearing the same outfit (and only three or five characters). It seems that if this was a big seller, more companies would do it. No argument that it is a great idea, it just doesn't seem to be enough of a seller to be cost effective.

DF has, on occasion, dabbled in miniatures, and done a great job. This seems like a really good project for them. And the easiest way (that involves the fewest lawyers) would be to create original characters to create poses for. But there is some research to do before anyone even starts making sketches. What poses do the most people want? Do we want different stances, or different stages, or both? Do we want all classes in all races, or should DF skip some/which combinations? Should each set come with a pack of interchangeable weapons and accessories, or should each be sculpted with one weapon and/or accessory? And how much would the average customer spend for how many minis?

Ha,ha...yes, lot's of descisions as usual..that's my job...I'll mull these things over as I drink a Guiness or two or three as I go hit the Williamsburg Bar zone...yes, it's St. Patrick's day here, and as I beleive I have a 1d4 chance of some irish Ancestry I need to go pay homage....however, before that I will say that we should start with the basic classes, see how they do, and go from there...
How I would present each figure will be top secret for now...
Such a project would interest me enourmously and I have lot's of idea's outside the box about it...perhaps for late 2013-2014...perhaps I would also rethink and for once offer unpainted versions as well...but no promises yet...

This story sounds very surprising for some fans here especially about the price so let me add some words.
I met Tom few years ago and I know he's living his passion strongly.
Look at his game room, his number of sets or even if his website.
His entire life is devoted to his passion : playing heroic fantasy !

I understand why he was ready to pay so much since I also had the same problem : impossible to fight this feeling when you have a idea but you can't do it yourself : it's frustrating. Money can solve the problem if you have some to spend/waste(?) but the price goes up in some cases.

Tom showed us in the past he could do it, once with the roof we bought and today twice with his serial of minis.

Each one tries to come closer of the perfection step by step.
Tom just needed some versatile minis to increase the viewable attraction of all his game parties. This is a good idea isn't it ?
Now the ones who really need it then you know what to do.

Oh yes, I will add that I have the greatest amount of respect for Tom, and am routinely grateful for his fantastic contributions to this Forum, which is appreciated by fans all over the world! I personally don't think he paid too much to make his dream come true...after all, folks spend plenty of money on other things like fancy cars, paintings, stereo's jewelry, fur coats, expensive wine's, vacations, etc,etc...so we all have desires for what we want to spend our hard earned money on...I myself am with Tom...i spend it often on miniatures of which i have thousands and am very happy to have them:)
What is great about Tom is his drive to make his dreams come true, and his attention to details, and finaly his generosity and will to share it with others!

I would be willing to shell out $60 for 6 miniatures that are prepainted in resin. I would be more interested in getting three poses of mini mixed with three poses of a different mini though. To get six poses of the same mini seems a bit overkill to me.
