IMO, the DF miniatures were intended to be used as accessories for the dungeon set. Unfortunately, the concept is doomed right at the beginning. It costs too much time, money and effort to make miniature figures than chest box, furnitures, etc.
The sketetal and lizardmen lines are rather unique. However, gamers and collectors will like to have a similar consistency in their game pieces and most of important, different varieties. DF failed to expand its miniature lines further by producing special characters, shamens, bone-mages, mounts, large monsters, etc. and therefore not able to capture a fair share of supporters.

I think the main problem with the minis was price. People are pretty forgiving about figures they don't think are PERFECT, but they are really uptight about price. Three figs for $15, that's just really REALLY expensive. If you like painting figs, it's kinda insane to pay that much, since Reaper gives you a much cheaper deal, or a boxed plastic box from GW. If you don't, the MK and WOTC figs are still cheaper.

The line wasn't going to be a big hit at that price. We don't mind paying high end for the scenery because it's unique and spectacular and useful. The minis, we can get better deals. It just wasn't a cost-effective market for a company of this size.

Law,

Yup and Not just Price... The Price was VERY High for a Piece that was THAT Fragile... I Still Love them... I Hope One day they will be Collectors Items... And I Would (As I Have Said Over and Over, ...<Grin>...), Love to see some "Special" Miniatures come with Specific Sets... A Barman/Wench with a Tavern Set etc... But at this Point I Would rather See DF remain Open for Business and Continue to release Kewl Sets as Well...
