Figures in the style of anime/manga, with a particular nod to Hyung-Tae Kim. For those unable or unwilling to follow the link, the art is a mix of traditional fantasy with some modern sensibilities ... ie lacquered breastplate and pleated skirt. Might be better suited to the Master series line than Dark Heaven or Warlord.

My creative juices are flowing as usual. :)


I'm a huge fan of giants. Most mini companies tend to make the stereotypical versions of each subclass (i.e. hill, fire, frost, storm, cloud ect.) and stop there. I'd love to see more varied prestiege class styled giants (both male and female) like we see with player characters. For example... I can't say I've ever seen a mage spell casting giant or a rogue archer giant. This would be something my wallet would lose some green over! ::P::poke:


I'd also really love to see a killer take on a nightmare (steed). Flaming hooves, wicked arched leathery wings, wild mane, flared nostrils, grimacing muzzle and the evil eyes. The whole works. Two versions (like Sandra did with the Pegasus)... one standing and one reared back on it's hind legs. A running version would be cool too. :D


I believe these would do well for you guys.


I've a ton of original ideas too. I'm finally getting around to illustrating a few of them. :poke:

Definately the Nightmare, Hendercrazy. Could there be anything more evil than a foxhunt with Nightmare steeds and hellhounds? I second that!


More familiar/normal animals: A parrot or large macaw (for the pirates, Yar!), Three-Toed Sloth (or even a Dire Sloth), mangy mutt type dog...


And some more monsters, like a horse with curved dual horns (instead of the normal twisted unicorn horn), and claws instead of hooves, sharp pointy teeth, a short, cropped-style mane and a tail similar to that of a zebra.


and a spider-legged goatskull, please?

How about sets of various sized and types of wheels for scratch-building one's own wagons or other rolling-stock? We don't always have the luxury of proper scale models to cannibalize.

If charots and wagons are not possible I like this idea as well

More of a general preference than a specific model type: useable weapons. I would like to see bows that don't have the string going through the arm, swords for grunts that could actually be wielded, etc. I don't mind suspending some belief for the purposes of fantasy miniatures, but I also don't see a need to do so just for the sake of doing so.

I think we always have a disparity for characters that are blemished. I don't see many barbarians that have scars (I know I could paint them but not all friends have the patience to do more than paint, dry brush, then wash). I also agree with people requesting weapons be closer to scale.


As for actual specifics for characters:

Dwarven short-bowmen.

Dual wielding Dwarven Rangers


Additionally (although the warlord line might alleviate this)

Mounted heroes of both sexes and mixed classes. The warrior isn't the only person that rides a horse; I have played with a mean Mongolian-style halfling archer.


Finally and it may sound silly but in terms of D&D characters their are people that occasionally play a gnome or halfling Barbarian. These small warriors are indeed underrepresented.


Edit for clarification


I am not only asking for gnome barbarians but small "standard race" warriors in general.
