Moi? Why, thank you!

I have the original DF orcs and they're hella fun. They're also a tad fragile, though. I'd love some Dwarvenite ones so I can handle them the way I do my lizardfolk and townsfolk. :)

Can't wait for ks6!

The Dungeon of Doom should come with a pile of dead adventurers. Brings up the trepidation factor.

I have thousands of miniatures that cover a lot of ground. I ended up liking the DF villagers more than I thought I would originally. There was a definite problem with the proportions of some of them however. A few of them look like dwarves or halflings when I don't think that was the intent. I would be on board for more villagers.

That being said, most of the figures I will buy will be the one's I can't get elsewhere. The dead adventurers are a GREAT example of miniatures I would LOVE to have.

I think DF has a unique opportunity to make miniatures that interact with existing terrain. Sitting miniatures is a great example of that. They would make my tavern builds look so much better! Partially submerged figures (like the old lizardman ones) could also be cool.

Some different animals like mules, dogs and horses would also be useful. Yes we already have DF horses but we could always use a few different sculpts/poses.

As for miniatures of wizards, rogues and fighters? Meh. I mean I just have so many of them already. It would have to be an amazing sculpt for me to want it. I understand the desire to want to have those sorts of iconic figures in your line, I just personally am overwhelmed with figures like that.

If your so inclined to do the classic D&D monsters, give them unique poses. Female versions of orcs, goblins, gnolls and bugbears are pretty rare and could prove interesting.

Think outside of the box. Look at existing lines and note what's missing and then do those ones. That's what excites me. Of course I'm speaking as a person who has been collecting miniatures for over 20 years. A newbie may have the exact opposite opinion!

Best of luck!

Gah! I kinda want them all! Even basic adventurers - while those are plentiful from a million sources, the DF ones would rock!

I voted for seated minis bc those are harder to come by, and with all the taverns and inns and carriages I need a lot. Ditto prone figures for all those beds.

I also want more townsfolk and repeat the vote for generic ones that won't stand out so much if you have 5 of the same guy. I have two sets of DF townsfolk, which works on a large city bc I can spread them out and minimize the twins effect. But I doubt I'd get more bc of this issue.

And I'd love to see some large monsters!

Also - orcs! We've got amazing lizardfolk and imps and ratmen but the most classic fantasy bogeyman of all - I know it's dull and the DF team is like "ugh, boring" but a set of orcs would be amazing. Some of us have kids just coming to D&D who want to fight orcs! And the wotc ones are meh. I want classic 1e DF orcs!

I'm not being a wisenheimer but some "odd-ball" scenery minis that add flavor. The town drunk (either passed out pan handling). Haggered mother with a two or three toddlers hanging on her skirt while she nurses a baby. I know there s already (by another company) crazy cat lady.A young couple holding hands. A "non IP violating" CMOT Dibbler selling meat pies. Different street performers.

Non-sexualized "furry races". 90% of the fox, cat & dog "beast people". Seems like they are made more for people with a fetish than for gamers.

"'Strange' multi-race peoples" (inspired from Fantasy Age) Dwarf/Elf, Saurian/Gnome, Dwarf/Orc, et al. Generally only see a half Orc/Human and Half Elf/Human combos.

Two that people would either love or hate to have. A pizza delivery guy and a Chinese Food delivery guy.

Would like to see more modern and sci fi stuff but I know the majority of the market is for fantasy.

How about a Halfling bouncer, Dwarven bowyer, a Elf in ragged clothing selling cheap charms, a Dwarven grocer, a Gnome selling small animal pelts and a Elf selling roasted chicken. ;)
Most excellent! Two of each, please, painted!
