I would love mini's of dead adventurer's.  I don't mean undead, I mean laying on the ground after having violently sloughed off this mortal coil.  I have mini's of generic dead townsfolk, but not of dead wizards, dead fighters, dead paladins, dead rogues, etc.  Actually, in a perfect world, I'd like a slain version of every creature ever created.  Monty Python said it best, "bring out your dead!".  Thanks.

One I'd love to see in metal is the pack camel, it looks like something that would work well as an extra piece for the nativity set.

 

Another sheep sculpt or two would be nice as well for it, perhaps some other versions of the Animal Companions : Pig, Goat, and Cow...possibly having the chickens from the townsfolk sets done separately as well with few extra hens

There is a Wise Man 3, but he is missing the holiday tag.  I think he came out a couple years ago.

Actually the Bones Camel is a nice figure. It's not droopy like allot of regular Bones figures are. The legs are pretty solid.

I figured it would be, but I'd love a metal one because I'm using the main Nativity things as a gift, was thinking about things to expand it for a later gift.

I would dearly love to see this guy released independently.

The guy on the left is the one that was released as a dwarven mancatcher single.  Unfortunately that's a Halberd he's using, not a mancatcher.

-Character with flintlock pistols, frock coat, tricorn hat, but not a beardy pirate  

-Character with arquebus, frock coat, tricorn hat, not a beardy pirate

-Character with multi-barrel flintlock gun, frock coat, tricorn hat, 

-Halfling-sized anthropomorphic sparrow in frock coat and weskit

-Large humanoid monster with elk stag head  (unarmed and unclothed)

 

What Russell wants are Monster Blood Tattoo figures. I am also a fan of the series. But you need to make the anthropomorphic sparrow larger than halfling sized. In the book Cinnamon is 3'7". So short but kind of in between halflings and humans. He has arms and no wings. And a weskit is a waist coat.

I would also add the Lappiduce to the list. This is a rabbit headed humanoid monster in a pretty nice frock coat that stands 7' not counting his ears.

There is already a very nice nicker with an elk head available from Northstar miniatures.

The frock coats the characters wear are kind of a mixture of an 18th century military coat and a 19th century duster. Also the tricorn hats are exaggeratedly tall. In the stories they are referred to as thrice highs. They are more like the tricorn hats in the movie Brotherhood of the Wolf or Pacte des Loupes. I think the books borrows a lot of style and fashion from the film

I don't know anything about the Monster Blood Tattoo series, but it's true there's a fashion lacuna. Chronoscope has Victorian and modern (and future!) models, while Dark Heaven and Warlord have prehistorical through medieval and renaissance fashions, but minis dressed in styles from 1600s-1830s European fashions are in short supply except for witch-hunters and pirates. Bring on the powdered wigs and huge lapels! Enormous collars and highwayman hats! 

Note: come to think of it, a few Pathfinder minis come pretty close to the mark...Visbaronetness Delour, the Grey Gardener, and Quinn the Investigator would not be out of place in a Scarlet Pimpernel tale.

Not exactly minis, but it would be nice to see things like collections of heads. Things like aliens, fantasy races, and similar that could be used for conversions. I'd rather them as metal than bones with that sort of thing due to potential detail for it that Bones seem to end up hit or miss with.
