I definitely do not want pieces of minis. Whole minis please.

poll answered...

one thing to consider might be to do a set with "generic" seated bodies and a set of separate "generic" heads. Do a sprue or two of half a dozen assorted heads, some with hats, some without. Do a half dozen styles of clothing/pose for the bodies.

Mix and match heads and bodies and you have potential for a whole lot of variety.

And of course both sexes are needed.

I would buy a lot more of this type of set, than one with fixed head/body. Variety is the priority for me.
I kind of hinted at this in the poll as well, but many of us don't paint miniatures. So, while I understand your desire, I'm not sure that DF is the best place for this type of request primarily because they don't seem to do "sprues" and "sprues" don't work with prepainted miniatures very well.

I'd buy some of those sprues though, from another company that does plastic sprues if they were like you described... I would just have to hire out the painting. :)

Seated Figures: I believe I had asked Forumites to send their wishes for seated figures to: dwarvenforgeinfo@gmail.com and only 3 people did so...so we can't justify doing them. WE COULD BE WRONG though?
Anime, can you create one of those Polls? Who wants seated figures?
Pose it like this:
What minis do you most want:

Adventurers
humanoid Monsters
large single bad ass monsters
villagers/townsfolk
dead adventurers
Valorian personalities (from our modules and future ones-some from other companies which take place in Mythras)
Seated minis (tavern patrons)
mounted minis (adventurers capable of sitting on various mounts)

any other categories we can think of?

Thank you!

Oh, and what I meant by the Convex Curve Wall being part of an Elevation System... Maybe you could arrange them like this, and there would be a "Frisbee" type round platform that would sit on top of the structure, to make a raised area...

Another thought the CV could be Caverns revisited, like with dungeons.

Also, since Nate said to speculate...

I notice that the nomenclature of the diagonal pieces:
- Diagonal Wall (CV-603)
- Left Swell (CV-604)
- Right Swell (CV-605)

Is different than the:
- 4"x4" Convex Curve (EC-602)

CV-6xx probably stands for: (Caverns) - (Kickstarter #6) (piece number #xx)
EC-6xx is a different category. Could it be a part of "Elevated Caverns"? Who knows.

So we should probably expect:
- "Cavern Remastered Core Set" (2"x2" New Sculpts for Core Shapes)
- "Advanced Builder Pieces" (1"x1" Pieces, etc. similar to KS5: Dungeon Advanced Builder)
- "Passage Pieces" (similar to the tabbed KS5: Dungeon Passage Walls, Hallways, Intersections)
- "Ledges" (Negative space pieces, similar to KS5: Ledges and Angled Ledges, perhaps backfills)
- "Large Floor Set" (4"x4" and greater floors)
- "Water Caverns 2"
- "Elevation Pieces" (Curved Stairs, Bridges, etc)
- Magnetic Pieces
- LED Pieces
- Accessory / Features Sets

As well as these non-Dwarvenite pieces:
- Elevation Platform boxes
- Terrain Trays (although with Lava, Acid, and Water used already... not sure what hazard they would put on the other side of a Cavern Floor?)
Nice thinking here. I can see black pit terrain trays, muddy water trays, cavern floor trays and perhaps some kind of mystical energy tray, at the least.

I backed a KS I had not planned to just to get seated minis. Good seated minis, especially ones that can be placed on different seats are the #1 thing on my wishlist. Close behind is seated figures with matching standing or adventuring poses. I have hundreds of minis. Maybe over a thousand at this point? Not sure, I really need to take proper stock. I think I have less than fifteen seated minis. So, in short, +1 for seated minis!

Not that we could afford it but Vanta Black would be cool.

Dark cavern/swamp colored water could be useful.
