Generic Superhero Minis?
« on: October 18, 2023, 01:35:57 AM »
Hi folks.

I can't help but notice that nearly all superhero minis are either Marvel or DC. This isn't necessarily a bad thing since both franchises have great options...but what if you want something else? I haven't found a lot, but it might be helpful to share. If you guys know of any others, feel free to link them.

Oh, and feel free to move this thread if I've popped it in the wrong place.

Reaper has a number of generic superhero figures. I have got them and really like them.

Old Glory Super Figs

Also Hasslefree have some good ones too.
I used Ramshackle minis for a bunch also. Not sure if they still sell the ones I bought for the purpose. Here's my old thread https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=88658.0 mostly superfigs from old glory (secondhand purchase though.)

Superheroes are pretty special in that they don't have a specific look.  You can use pretty much anything.

Reaper miniatures has a lot that will work perfectly, they just aren't called "superheroes".

Do a search there for "golem" and you'll get a lot of figures that will work perfectly without any changes, like this guy;

Although if you do do a search on Reaper you can find figures under the term superheroes.

There are a number of Hasslefree figures that work as Superheroes.

Anastasia is a former member of The Iron Ceiling who is now a member of A.G.E.N.T.S.


Chloe from A.G.E.N.T.S.


Krysten is a hard drinking but accomplished private detective, with hidden talents.

Crooked Dice have a number of useful figures, not just ninjas.

Somewhere they had some Extraordinary Agents, but they are not on the current site.

Crossover Miniatures had a Hero range including

Crossover Miniatures Doctor E. Vil



From the left, a work in progress Crossover Paramilitary Goon with Strike Team head.
Next a work in progress Crooked Dice X-Commando, followed by the Crossover Super Soldier. The fourth figure is a slightly converted classic Pandora King and the last figure is the Crossover Hoplite.

most of the Rumbleslam miniatures work as superheroes... That's what I use them for.

And of course, you have Kitbash games:

and Pulp City (hard to find, but in that group they have some to buy sometimes):

Crooked Dice have some costumed heroes as well (though they might be more suitable for pulp games).

I love these. the problem in my case is that shipping from the USA would cost me more than miniatures, but they look awesome
