New Lizard Man Set? 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hello Fans!

Due to what seems like popular demand I am currently working with Sandra Garrity on a follow up to the Lizard Man Tribe!

Any suggestions? There will definitely be a Shaman....and I really want to include riders of some sort...currently in the running are Giant Frogs, Giant Lizards, Giant snapping turtle, or....a completely invented creature of some nasty kind....

What do y'all think?

Those are all great choices but I'd lean towards the giant lizard myself.

I would like to suggest a Deinonychus rider or even cooler a Pteranodon rider.Perhaps wearing a string of skulls or dressed in bone armor and war paint!
Also other ideas:
Lizardman Pyromancer,Lizardman War-Chief,Female Lizard folk of sometype and a Lizardman tribal Negotiator.For accessories a big cauldren for cooking adventurers.

Lizard Man riders...

All on giant monitor lizards, or each on a different giant lizard including (RW) basilisk lizard, frilled lizard, gecko, gila monster, and chameleon. (Bonus points for putting a Lizard Man rider on a gecko that's clinging to a wall, and on a basilisk lizard that's running on water!)

Or, alligators/crocodiles. Smooth land movement, and great swimmers.

Hi Stefan,

What would really go great with that lizard set would a DF Marsh set :) I can see it in my mind. Little trails through bogs and dark waters. That would be a great set to accompany an outdoor set or a forest set. :)

Pat

PS: I'm not too much into minis from DF. I have so many from other sources. But if that's what you fancy these days ... Go for it.

A lot of great ideas in this thread. I would vote for the Lizard Rider myself for a mounted unit.

I bought a pretty cool homemade piece on ebay that fits this idea. Basically it is a large plastic stegosaurus cut down, mounted to a base that simulates water, and with a large riding platform on its back. The guy I got it from used a bunch of the dnd plastic lizardmen and trogs to be the "crew". For the platform, think the elephant platforms in Return of the King. Several minis fit on it.
I am out of town but will post a pic when I get home in a few days.

I would love a new lizard man set from DF! I'm very excited about this! Many other miniature companies out there have "lizard" riders. I would love to see the turtle and/or frog riders so that they were more unique.

Concerning a giant frog as a mount. Wouldn't it be awesome to have it's tongue lashing out in a circle ready to grasp an adventure. Then it could pull them in for a nice meal or hold them struggling as lizard men used a blow pipe on them.

I've always thought that a giant toad monster that could have its top half lifted to reveal a stomach large enough for a mini and a visible heart and lungs would make for great roleplaying. The player was swallowed by the toad and now is taking acid damage...their only chance...damage the toads internals through the wall of the stomach!

I would also love to see more blow pipe lizard tribe members. My favorite look is seeing a blowpipe lizard man rising from a body of water ready to ambush adventures and paralize them for that nights meal ;).

Thanks for listening to your fans interest in more lizard men! It really makes me want to buy from and support DF since I feel like the company actually pays attention to input from the forums.

Thank you for all your hard work!

Anybody else like these ideas?

As you may already know, Reaper has some 77+ "lizard" models, of which a noticeable portion already are "large lizards" (two crocodiles, an alligator man, and 106+ dinosaurs). So for the sake of narrowing your list, and if for no other reason than the presence of a comparable product in the market, I'd say that's out of my list. From a consumer point of view I feel those types of monsters are everywhere, and if I'm willing to buy a plastic model, inexpensive too. That said, my suggestion may yet still qualify as a large lizard even if it isn't of the traditional imagery that goes along with those words.

I like the Giant Frog or Toad concept, and I also like the Giant Snapping Turtle idea too, very much in fact but I think I want to push the envelope and go for the inventive category on the list.

In the spirit of the lord of all that swims in darkness, I'd like to suggest something that is a mixture of the demonic, and the reptilian in appearance.



Before, I sound completely nuts, let me say no, not the Demogorgon itself my friends, (Bob Olley already did that) rather something inspired out of that image. But again, something that is as much a reptile as it is something far more haunting.



Perhaps such a fiend is overlord of the entire tribe, or under the strict persuasions of the Shaman's irresssistable suggestionsssss...

Zargon, where did you find that bottom art piece? Very cool. I would like to know the full name of the artist (if you happen to know). Thanks!

I'm excited about this set. I'm still hoping for a monsterous toad ;).

OK, I'll be the dissenting opinion...

While the DF mini line does fit VERY well with the DF environment (especially size wise), there is just no way I am going to buy DF minis at their price point when I could buy (and already have thousands) of WOTC minis.

Would much rather see new, small additions to other terrain sets (a library set?) then another mini offering.
