Any ideas what minis I could use?
« on: October 27, 2012, 05:49:45 PM »
Hello knowledgable ones.

I'm looking for a bit of help sourcing some minis please.

In particular I'm looking for village type people of the shopkeeper variety. A butcher especially. These are for the lurker throng so sinister/twisted is better.

And circus troope minis. Ring master, acrobats, etc. but not clowns... I got them already.

I'm not adverse to a wee bit of modification but would rather not have to overhaul the whole thing. Any ideas would be helpful.

The sickle in the fruitful field;
The sword he sung a song of death,
But could not make the sickle yield."

Edit: Just saw that these miniatures might not be the right scale...sorry

Thanks for the help fellas.

@redzed. good spot. I like the idea of the man on stilts. Somehow these don't tickle me tho. I'll have a closer look tho. Cheers.

@superflynt. The shopkeeper has potential. thanks fella

@necrocannibal. Those are awe-some!! Wrong scale for sure. I'd love to see a comparison pic tho. They have loads of great stuff.  I quite like the ring master and the evil midget clowns. And the mad doc is sweeet! Good call.

@cherno. Mason gave me the mad butcher last week ( and the fat lady with a chair stuck up her arse as well as a clown to add to my own) tho their ringmaster looks nice. I'll have to trawl through eBay to see if I can pick the mad fella up cheep. cheers mate.

I will have a delve through the bits box in the next couple of days and see if I have anything else that you could use.

I know that I definitely have a dog catcher and a strongman that could work well in a circus theme.
