Question 25th June

What kind of mini ( Style, Race, Faction) do you miss? 

As in, not enough choice, isn't produced at all or too few.

For fantasy Gnomes. Centaurs. Harpy’s. Cyclops’s. A really good and different design for elves.

For sci-fi: Non humanoid alien races that aren’t all tentacles and chaosy.

For modern: Police men and women. In standard uniform, riot gear, and SWAT gear.

Female looking dragonfolk.

 

Aristocrats/nobles in silly clothes from multiple eras/styles. I want a lady in a silly hennin wearing a cotehardie. And a guy in a ridiculous houpelaunde that has sleeves that trail the floor. GIVE ME PUFFY PRINCESS GOWNS AND MEN IN TIGHTS!!!

 

Angels to match the size of all the demons available. 

 

A greater selection of female dwarves, halflings, and gnomes (I'd love some females in the style of the dark dwarves from bones 4). 

 

Oh, and huge fae folk too.

Having at least one female would be awesome. She'd cover allot of roles in my AL games (seems like every time a druegar comes up, its female lol)

 

My selection would include: 

 

Dragonborn in not martial classes 

 

Small humanoids as various lesser undead (skeletons, zombies, ghouls)

 

Pretty sure there are others but lack of sleep makes brain not function as much.....

I would like to see more fantasy versions of Meso-Americans, Conquistadores and more mythical monsters from different cultures.

Also more prehistoric monsters not just dinos.

This might be riding the very edge of what you're asking, but I'm going to say GW's old school chaos figures.

They were all different and unique from one another.  An entire regiment of them looked, well, chaotic.

The figures they're making now are (almost) monopose and way too cookie cutter for me.

Bring back the space dwarves from the original Rouge Trader game.

Totally agree!

I still want to create a Chaos Army in Oldhammer style, but I need to choose my projects these days.

Hmm, maybe include it into my Horde of the North.

Those days the minis had so much character and style!

Arthurians, Bretonnians...

 

...Giants and Dragons abound, but there’s a lack of Dragonslayers.

Characters not brandishing weapons. I don't know that they would sell well, so this is not something I would expect, but I would like them.

 

And landsknechts. (Brandishing weapons. :rolleyes:) The old Ral Partha landsknechts sculpted by Tom Meier are great (and I have a bunch), but they're very small by today's standards.

I'd love some Landsknechts of different races too. I know there are some ish ones of orcs from Warmonger, but it would be nice to see some other offerings.

 

Halflings and gnomes. Hard to find much love for these guys. I know that StoneHaven have some, but to be truthful I'm not the hugest fan of their aesthetic.

 

I love Reaper and Dark Sword and a few others, but as I get older I find myself drawn more and more to the Oldhammer style of minis.

FLUMPHS!

 

Funny, I was just considering knocking one or two of these out the other day, but couldn't think of a way to make the danglely bits castable and yet still flumph-like.

 

Image result for flumph

Already mentioned, but more minotaurs. Both male and female, and not of the savage beast variety.

 

I also think monks are lacking, females in particular. Give me more asian cinema style garb (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon style) and less karate dojo gi.

Scifi women, who are not snipers or doctor/nurse! (I get the sniper association for stalingrad, and the nurse thing, but really any other character class needs more representation)

 

humans, aliens, robots, cyborgs, just not snipers or medics.

Elves, dwarves, orcs, and goblins. I really wish someone would take a risk on these, I think they'd be popular.
