I run an al-Qadim campaign and have an extensive figure collection. The one thing I really want to complete my collection are copper automatons.

In al-Qadim these are finely crafted automatons. They look like clockwork automatons but of course use magic and do not need to be wound up. Try as I might I cannot find any such figures. There are lots of steam-punk automatons but are typically clunky and 'steam driven' (obviously. There also plenty of sci-fi robots/automatons but they are boxy and often 1950s movie type crude designs.

Been years searching. All are two legged, humanesque in form and size.

Any ideas please?

Maybe find some "old school" fantasy figures that are a bit clunky, compared with modern sculpts. Try painting them up as automatons??

Maybe some Crooked Dice minis may help.

Thanks folks. I like the Reaper figures. Haven't seen the Alf 24. She-bot could work with appropriate weapons.

Have ordered the Reaper figures…..

I have finished painting the Reaper figures and just added spears. Had my first go at a wash for the verdigris. Many thanks Virtualscratchbuilder.

The 'Alf' figure is closer to what I wanted than the 'Marie'


is my Facebook page for al-Qadim figures. Photos (which I can't seem to post here on TMP) are under Automatons which can be found under 'Other al-Qadim monsters' topic.
