Not so much a mini I would like to see, but I would love to see a line of dungeon tiles made in the Bones material.  The Bones material is light, flexible, and durable unlike the current resin and urethane materials that most 3D tiles are made from which is heavy and brittle.  I would love to be able to take my tiles, throw them in a bag, and take them to an event instead of having to currently wrap each one up to prevent paint scratching and possible breakage.  Maybe for starters your standard 2x2 floor tiles, 2x6 corridors, curved sections, doorways/entrances, and a couple of rooms of various size.  We already know that the Bones material can make awesome dungeon decor so lets use it to make the actual dungeon!

 

In addition to Dwarven Forge, there was a Kickstarter from Frontline Games (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1080314421/stones-dungeon-tiles) for floor tiles made from Bones material. I'm sure after they fulfill, they'll be selling them to the general public.

 

No, no, no, they called their plastic material Stones, which obviously, being not-Bones, could not possibly be Bones. Who ever heard of rocks being made out of Bones anyway? shifty.gif

Ice age miniatures: Mammoths, mastodonts, Irish elk, sabretooth cats, giant ground sloths, and maybe skeleton versions of them too, for monsters and Indiana Jones-style pulp museum exhibits.

With the advent of BONES 2, and the quality of the tower in DDS2, I'd like to see more Bonesium terrain pieces and scenic vignette bases (like the three currently sold in resin).

I endorse both of the above!

For those of us who are Rank & File gamers, we definitely need more affordable cavalry, since a single unit in metal can easily cost $180+.  I'm currently assembling an undead army for Armies of Arcana, so my immediate list would include

 

02361: Skeletal Cavalry w/lance ****  (variants wanted: w/sword & shield, w/bow, w/lance & heavy armor)

03357: Skeletal Knight

14171: Gadrun, Necropolis Sergeant

14149: Deathrider, Necropolis Adept

 

Other 'nice to have' rank & file minis:

02014: Skeletal Halberdier

06035: Ghouls

06205: Ghouls

Please do a five headed dragon (Tiamat) in the same scale or larger than Kaladrax. A couple of months ago D&D release a "gargantuan" version of her, but it is extremely small, so I am looking for other alternatives, a dragon that will be impressive at the game table, an enemy that my play group will remember in fear. Please do her a version now that we know that D&D didn't or couldn't do her justice.

NPC sets:

I loved the town guard from expansion 2. They were all different but still a matching set, clearly defining who is who on the table. Sets of matching guard, army, cults, or gangs would see a lot of mileage on my table. An elven guard, a dwarven army, a halfing gang would be useful for me as a GM.

 

Mythological Creatures

I would also love to see a cockatrice, hippogriff, manticore, Sphinx, amphithere, etc.

 

Other cultural mythos, armor, apparel:

Many campaigns stray from European analogue areas and when that happens, finding appropriate, affordable miniatures for the table can be a challenge. When we visit Tian Xia,it would be awesome to have a variety of peasant, nobility, and warrior figures in both genders as well as some well known mythological beasts and spirits. Kirin, foo dogs, serpentine dragons, kappa, and the like would be great. Would also love to see Arabian, Indian, Russian, Mesoamerican, etc. analogue populace and mythos fleshed out. That would be pretty grand and when the party inevitably decides to fly off the map somewhere far away, there would be awesome minis to support it.

Dragons with saddles, and separate riders for them.

 

Also, I hope the Bones line is now big and self sustaining enough that we'll start to see things added on a more regular basis, instead of via Kickstarter. I'd much rather see 5 new Bones figures a month, then 200+ new ones every 2 years or so.
