Monsters I wish they made, so I could by them.

Well, I've worked my through the Monstrous Manual compilation I've been working on from Zombie Wolf to Aaracokra. It has taken nearly a year with simultaneous miniature inventory.

It is not complete, by any stretch. I've got a huge pile of unopened miniatures from my friend at Reaper, and another shelf full of miniatures yet to be identified or invented and then create their sheets before placing them on the shelves with the rest of the collection.

As I do, I'll list monsters here that I wish someone made miniatures of, and will try to include references for those of you out there who are sculptors and might like to make an unofficial one for me out of green stuff. I'll be trying my own hand at some of them, but I'm not the sculptor I wish I were.

I'll update this entry from time to time, instead of putting new posts repeating the same information. So if this interests you, please bookmark the post and check back from time to time. Also, please put your suggestions in the comments box--or better yet, if you know someone who does make a mini of this monster, post that info! They don't have to be things that are marketed as these creatures, just miniatures which are sculpted very closely to the artwork for these creatures.

All designations for artwork are 2E materials unless otherwise indicated.

Gelatinous Cube If having something suspended in the cube is the only thing holding up production on this monster, then don't put anything inside it! That just makes the cube hungrier and unlike the Ochre Jelly, we don't have to have three or four Cubes forever eating the same exact thing as they move down the hallway. This is a game of imaginagtion, people! If we have an empty cube how hard is it for the DM to say, "There is a half digested bugbear corpse suspended in the cube."? Note: Thanks to Curious George, I was reminded that Sean K. Reynolds has been working on casting a Gelatinous Cube.

That should keep the sets coming for a few years!

I know that Sean K. Reynolds (of 3E fame, or perhaps infamy from your perspective...) was working on custom Gelatinous Cube minis, either with or without skeletons inside it. If you search a bit on his page message board, you should find it. Linkage:

I am a big fan of Sean, he is a crotchety about his gaming as I am about mine. I have nothing against 3E existing or even of people enjoying playing it.

What I hate is people trying to get me to admit that 2E sucks by comparison and that I should switch.

Just like Sean's sub-title is "Very Opinionated d20 Gaming" I'm pretty opinionated myself--but infamy? Heck no. Anyone who uses his game site to hawk his girlfriend's home made soap is A-OK by me!

I'll check out the gelatinous cube lead...I've also seen someone selling custom made cubes on eBay. And somewhere there is a web page by someone (maybe even Sean) that details the process they are trying to develop using...I just can't remember it and didn't book mark it.

Thanks, though, for the lead and for letting me know that I'm not just shouting in the wind on this blog--nice to know someone but me reads it once in a while.
