I didn't grow up with the EQP or BQP, and didn't get them until I traded for them on Bartertown maybe 15 years ago.

But some of the minis from both of those are a pretty big disappointment compared to the original set.
The mercs, ogres, warbears, and frozen horror are decent -- pretty much everything else is fairly low-detail compared to how "crisp" the main molds were, along with the scaling being off (the female heroes are much too small, for instance)


Long way to say -- I think most people would be better served with substitute miniatures for both of those quest packs!

So before I went all out with Bones, I tried out those fantasy tube packs and actually found some figures I liked... specifically, the "Dragon" from here. As cool as the dragons in most miniature lines look, they're way too huge to be something the heroes could credibly take on, or the smaller dragons lack detail and look like baby lizards.

And this set for the giant spiders (pictures on the page don't do them justice, they look creepy and fairly awesome up close):

The gray color is just about perfect, I don't even have to paint them! Of course the material used is a lot more flexible and rubbery than your standard Reaper polymer. A lot of the figures had to be boiled and some of them still didn't stay in shape (but the Dragons and Spiders were fine).

Those are a great idea for letting younger kids have their own minis. I like it.
