Dead bodies is a good idea. (villagers, monsters, heroes)

It occurs to me that a few transparent minis could not only represent invisible opponents, but could also stand in for characters who are successfully using stealth. A set of clear figures, simple due to the medium and generic for broad use, might come in very handy.

Alternatively, paint a second copy of your character's mini in greyscale rather than in color.

What monsters or spell effects would best use a transparent mini? All I can think of are invisible stalkers, certain ghosts, and the little-known "glass golem".

Litko Aerosystems already makes a set of invisible adventurers for D&D 4E, though obviously useful for other game systems.

I would definitely support Stefan's vision of dead monsters. As for PCs, I remember the old Ral Partha 3-stage characters in low, medium and high level. I believe there were also some minis that included a prone version back in the old day. I'd love to see those in the detail of today's miniatures.

I'm certainly not trying to take business away from DF but a SIMPLE method is this:
Use a little petroleum jelly to adhere some saran wrap or waxed paper to two or so steps and squirt an appropriate 'dollop' of clear silicone and use a wet paper towel (or finger or tool) to make a 1" platform even with a step up or so.
Let dry, remove wrapper and Voila! A clear inverted step-platform to stand a mini partway up the steps!
Enjoy

I have not done this with DF yet, but I have taken an extra set of stairs and cut off the bottom few steps. I then just flip it over and set it on a set of steps. This creates a shelf three steps in width (2 plus one step from the stair you are climbing. It does create allot of waste though since the remainder of the cut stair is garbage.

A small stair should be able to be cut like this to make a shelf for any small stair, lower stair or upper stair.
