Since we just got the supersized mouselings, how about larger versions of the Kid Heroes? I know that they're supposed to be, well, kids but they are extremely fiddly to paint. The renders look amazing but they definitely lost something in the translation to plastic.

The kids are just about normal for what we get for gnomes and halflings (in fact, I suggested repurposing them as gnomes and halflings for the handful of Kickstarter backers who said they didn't need them, which seemed like a win for everyone involved), but that's a fair enough request. 

 

Or, perhaps some "Small World" versions of the kids? 

 

Might just be my imagination, but it seems like something like that may be a great gift idea for young painters, as the Small World characters seemed like hits with the beginnef painters I've given them to, for exactly the reasons you mentioned:  they're much easier to paint, especially the faces.

A gothic monsters/characters box expansion. 

 

an entire box expansion for call of Cthulhu the second most popular rpg in the world.  Biggest rpg in japan even ahead of d and d.

 

Thee have some box expansions already for those in previous Kickstarters...

 

Spoiler

Bones III - Mythos Expansion (Dark Young, Investigators, Mi-Go, Deep Ones, terrain)

Bones III - Graveyard Expansion (mostly terrain, with a crypt, graves, and a few ghosts, vampires, and grave minions)
 

Bones IV - Core Set "Horror" (Ghouls, vampires, Mummies, Frankenstein Monsters, and terrain)
 

 

They were AWESOME.  But, if Reaper does some more, I'll certainly be on board with it.

 

I rather liked all the investigator characters in the Mythos expansion, and there's still a handful of popular Mythos beasties that don't have Bones equivalents (Elder Things, Yithians, zoogs, and others), and I for one would certainly back a "Mythos II" set with more terrain, monsters, and investigators.

 

I'm not sure there's much Gothic horror ground left uncovered (I've suggested an Old Dark House collection of creepy house servant 'townsfolk'/villains, and a couple times the suggestion for a dark carnival have popped up, but not sure these will get any traction.)  Reaper has been including some great Gothic horror stuff in every Kickstarter, though, including some beautiful terrain sets for the Ghoul Queen's crypt and some vampire hunters in a vampire's tomb, so Reaper still has lots of ideas to work with for boxed expansions in a Gothic theme.

Alternative heads for the skeleton dragons. The blue dragon has that huge horn, the black has those front facing horns, the white that long crest down the cneter of it's skull. The horns are okay but also only applicable to say the red standards. Maybe a seperate piece? Not sure how that'd work.

The archway from the Blacksting Wyvern available as its own piece.

 

It's being offered again in Bones 5.5, probably cheaper than it will be at retail.  You can find another use for the dragon.

I'd like to see some more fantasy-esque islanders.  More people from a jungle/beach/island society - less cannibal savage problematic cliché. Maybe something based on the heroes and legends of Polynesian mythologies - similar to the Greek Odyssey set being based on Greek myths.

I would also lie to see this, in part because my campaign's elven culture has an Amazonian bend on it, and finding minis that look kinda like amazons without big angry faces is kinda hard sometimes.

 

I'd also like to see some more insectoid monsters! Wasps, bees, mosquitos, etc.

It's maybe not a popular opinion, but I'm OK with running with that "problematic" cannibal islander cliche:  it's a fairly ancient one in pulp horror and adventure, and certainly has had its unsavory history, but fantasy runs on such cliches, with many of them getting off-boarded onto monsters - imaginary creatures of our irrational fears, paranoia, insecurities, and anxieties - where such cliches seem far more at home.  Please, give us some cannibal orcs and goblins for our heroic islander warriors, wizards, and clerics to triumph over, in the same way that our heroic "Eurocentric" heroes have their generically "Eurocentric" cannibal orcs and goblins to conquer through wisdom, courage, and strength. 

 

I'm willing to take the lumps for saying so, but powerful, memorable, and interesting heroes deserve powerful, memorable, and interesting monsters, and there are few monsters in our collective human folklore as powerful, memorable, and interesting as the cannibal, from orcs, to ghouls and vampires, to werewolves, to ogres and more....

When I said gothic what I really would like is more Victorians who are not overtly steampunk.  Also    Modern kids that are not oversized/exaggerated to use with kids on bikes or tales from the loop.

 

would love some guys/gals in full space suits, like space walk spacesuits to use with Mothership rpgs and alien rpgs

 

and anything that looks like it comes from the hyborean age including thinly veiled Conan sculpts.

 

more dark elves that are not evil as that is going to be changed in DnD
