Townsfolk/villagers are great, but I hope we can go beyond just stereotypical "inn staff" minis.

In particular, demi-human villagers. Dwarven miners (a great compliment to KS6), elven wine merchants, a halfling gentleman smoking a fine long pipe, a half-orc bouncer, dwarven jewelers and toymakers, elven bowyer, halfling grocer, dwarven smith, etc.

and a big plus 1 for this!
how about a sculptor making toy soldiers?

I do second making females who are not in stereotypical roles. A few is fine, as it adds variety, but a standing mini can be different roles depending on where it is standing.

I would love to see:

1) Townsfolk - various races and, please, please, please make female townsfolk who are NOT barmaids or prostitutes - please and thank you! :D
2) Seated figures - again, various races
3) Valorians
4) Dead adventurers
5) Mounted figures
6) Bad ass monsters
7) Humanoid monsters
8) Adventurers

I'm eager for this Kickstarter to begin!

Oldent, your collection is awesome, thanks for sharing. Painted metal minis on resin DF is so much more classic D&D. I have thousands of pre-painted plastic minis and metric tons of dwarvenite, but I think I'd trade it all in for 10% the quantity of painted metal minis and 10% resin DF tiles.
Send me a PM. ;)

The key here with the DF minis KS though is that there is a PRE-PAINTED option. So, while there might be a lot of NPC/Villager/Sleeping/Dead etc options in the wide world of minis, how many of them come pre-painted?

There are literally HUNDREDS of pre-painted adventurers and bad-ass single monsters and I already own multiples of most of them. For us non-painters, we NEED lots more villager, sleeping, seated, dead, aristocrat, merchant etc and of lots of different races :)
I have not lobbied against pre painted figures. Considering the cost of stainless steel molds I believe the chances of finding or having them produced is better for unpainted metal.

Most of the orc villagers in my collection date back to the early 90's There is very little chance you will ever see them produced in plastic or PVC. Most of Bobby Jackson's villagers are available from bones. I have most of them in metal. You have to sell a lot of figures to make plastic pre painted figures cost effective.
