Any interest in the Stefan and dog minis?

Under the heading of “modular minis,” a “commoner carrying X” might have interchangeable loads — a chest, a pile of books, a bundle of wood, a basket of fruit, a pig or sheep, etc.

The loads, when not being carried by the mini, can be used elsewhere in a set-up.

Many great ideas here.

One thing I have not seen done in minis but was very common in past times is apprentices.

We see a ton of blacksmiths but how often do you see a blacksmith and apprentice mini.

Or a shop keeper and a youth working

Or a cleaning lady and her daughter working.

While there are some children and youth minis very few village or town folk minis show them working as apprentices or working at all.

It would certainty add a more medieval flavor to our cities.
A flower girl selling flowers is a classical device in many stories. A young pickpocket and a young "guide" might also be good choices for adding more to a scene.

Sets of minis would be a nice idea.

Seated minis would be great, especially when paired with the same sculpt standing for versatility.


One company a bit back did a set that went: brand new adventurer, mid-tier adventurer, maxed adventurer for several classes. I heard they didn't sell well. I didn't even know they existed and now I can't seem to find those. I think there is a market for this kind of stuff if people know it is out there.
Ral Partha used to make 3-stage miniatures. I have a triplet of Druids from that line. I would really like triplets with a seated, mounted, and adventuring version.

Those sound like figures for your "character(s)".
I wouldn't mind that too, but I like to paint those types usually.

I'm really more looking for pre-painted (or not), mindless(?) NPC fodder for public places or encounters.

I would love a set that comes in seated, mounted, and finally either a standing or "adventuring" pose. If they came in two paint schemes I would probably buy both and a set of unpainted to do myself. I have asked a few creators on KS for this. The one time I did it publicly a number of people chimed in that they were interested.

Since when did we stay on topic in this forum?

Weasels and bunnies comes immediately to mind.

I am not really a fan of many seated minis as they end up being more niche than standing minis. Some fallen minis, or corpses could be quite useful though. I have nothing against 10 or so seated minis wile trying for a variety of roles for each mini, but I hope we do not go overboard on them.


I do have a playing bias though so those looking for more diorama settings could certainly use a lot more seated minis.
