Females. 

More of these.  Especially in active stances/poses.  Many male miniatures have active stances/poses, while many female miniatures have passive poses.  More female miniatures applies to all of the suggestions that follow. 

 

Anthropomorphic animals (were-creatures).

Not Chibi versions.  The original mouslings as opposed to the larger scale mouslings for example. 

Mammals that have not been previously done: hedgehog folk, porcupine folk, squirrel folk, badger folk, moose folk, elk folk, etc. 

And more of the unique ones that have been done: rabbit folk, otter folk, raccoon folk, deer folk, etc.

Birds: owl folk, penguin folk, hummingbird folk, albatross folk, etc. 

Insects: anthropomorphic ants, bees, praying mantises, butterflies, etc. 

Love the cat folk, dragon folk, lizard folk, alligator folk, dinosaur folk, cow folk (minotaurs) that have been done; looking for some new anthropomorphic creatures now. 

 

Monsters with non-sterotypical weapons. 

Minotaurs with bows, spears, swords, staffs; anything but axes. 

Bugbears with swords, crossbows, polearms, daggers; anything but maces/clubs. 

 

Themed creatures and people, especially non-european.

Mayan (and other south American themes), Egyptian (and other middle eastern/northern Africa themes), African, Asian, Slavic, etc.  

The themes were one of my many favorite things about Bones 5; Daimyo, Greek Odyssey, Dark Depths, Brinewind, more like these. 

Love the Greek Odyssey monsters, now we also need some Greco-Roman adventurer miniatures to go encounter these monsters. 

Really not interested in more generic goblins, undead, ogres, dragons, etc. but when they are themed like they were in the Daimyo expansion, I’m all in. 

 

Qilin/Kirin. 

 

Pixies, sprites, fairies, etc. 

 

Insects: Ants, bees, flies, praying mantis, butterflies, etc.  Large and swarms. 

 

Farm animals and livestock from different parts of the world: water buffalo, yak, camels, llama, alpacas, sheep, goats, oxen, cows, pigs, chickens, etc. 

 

Unusual mounts with non-integrated riders so that the riders can be removed and used on other mounts: rhinoceros, hippo, llama, lion, dog, owl, etc. 

 

Second all of these things as well:

Fire and ice salamanders.

Wendigo and jackalope.

Anhurian siege weapons crew.

Viking longship and other Viking themed miniatures. 

Treants and other plant themed miniatures. 

Hag and the same hag on a crow.  Paladin, then same paladin on a griffin.

Fairy on a hummingbird.

Battle llama.

I´d really like humans and humanoids in postures of daily routine. Eating, repairing stuff, working, sleeping sitting (and playing cards or dice), standing lazy guard, being drunk, you name it. This for encounters, raids on (orc) camps, dioramas ....

 

Closed wagon with removable top; pulled by oxen, with sitting folk. In fact a whole caravan would be nice! Settlers, traders...

 

Tavern (brawling) scene (Brinewind?)

 

More mundane animals; farm, wood, exotic....everything

 

More giant insects

 

Book golem

 

1920s Terrain pieces, cars, ordinary folk

 

Big mesoamerican  pyramid (several parts, modular); aztec fighters, wizards, folk; terrain pieces

 

oh, I nearly forgot: more busts!! I´d love to see a Lich bust, monster busts, cthulian busts....

Speaking of fae/sprites/pixies/fairies:

 

Spoiler

F67D65E6-ED20-4D00-BDB7-2DDFC51FCEAD.png

 

The leprechaun and dancing mushroom-guys in this illustration are not expected to appear in the Kickstarter, but rather as the March Bones USA offering, BUT -

 

I don't know about anyone else, but that leprechaun and dancing mushroom-guys are exactly the sort of thing I'd want to see in a fae-themed expansion:  mischievous, vaguely spooky, creepy-cute magical characters.  Add in some more leprechaun-like guys and dark and dangerous winged fairies, more critters and scenic items like the little bagpipe familiar and menhir from one of the early Kickstarters, perhaps a banshee or the like, some melee combatants to go along with the spellcasters, maybe a large monster like Mossbeard Elven Monster or the shambler in the picture, and maybe a Goblin Queen or other royalty, and it works for me as a foundation for the basis for a seelie or unseelie court expansion.... 

 

What would your perfect fae expansion include?

Redcaps, with oversized axes and scythes.

 

Beautiful women clad in their long hair, serving as Selkies, Rusalkas, etc. 

 

A Glaistig - a beautiful river-dwelling woman with goat legs hidden under her skirts. 

 

Huldrefolk - Fae-like (or some would say troll-like) maidens from Norse folklore. They often appear as milk maids, but have aspects that belie their inhuman nature; a Fox tail or cow tail hidden under their skirts, or goat legs hidden under their skirts, or a hollow back like a rotted tree. 
 

A Large-sized Master of the Wild Hunt, masked with deer antlers, carrying a spear, or bow and arrows. Along with some hounds of the hunt.

Large-sized armored elves. They can be used as guards of the Faerie Court, or as Enlarged elf characters.

Some large sea monsters would be nice to go with Sophie's Revenge - a kraken, or a leviathan

Nautical terrain like rocky islands/reef

A whaling/shark hunting crew 

Old school goofy night goblin style models (though GW may have an issue with this)

More PCs with spiked flails

 

and I'd second a

Wendigo, book golem, campsite guards of various poses, and although I didn't know I needed it until I read it, attack llama.

I'm hoping for a huge one though! as big, or bigger than S's Revenge - as a monster to fight/run away from.

 

As perhaps just a head/mouth and tentacles a la WizKids, but with a more squiddy vibe and the reaper look.

Attack llama. So useful for all kinds of games.

 

Wullybugs/squogs (I think I spammed Reaper about this before though) in a variety of poses but same scale as the current ones. 

 

An elven temple set up, some overgrown arches and gazebos, male and female statues, perhaps a well spring or ruined roundtable as the central feature.

I would like to see characters based on the art and writing of DM Cornish (Monster Blood Tattoo and other works)

I strongly urge you to contact him about this. He is one of us. He has done illustrations for Pathfinder and maybe GW

You have started releasing Hare folk characters, and the Lapaduce would be perfect as one of these.

And I really need a Cinnamon figure

Citadel has been successful with their big box of skulls.  Some thing like that but less grimdark edgelord style.  Like a big box of items.  Broken weapons and shields, even unbroken would be great.  Some various species skulls are ok, different parts of a skeleton too.  Cart wheels.  Pile of apples.  Segments of walls with varying complexity of designs.  A few boards laying together.  Half buried boxes, crates, etc. Anything that could be tossed on a base to make the world seem more real.  A tiny mouse, a branch, fork and spoon.
