Regarding furniture, unique buildings, grave stones, walls, fences, etc ....

I'd recommend Thomarillion out of Germany. The have hundreds of products at pretty good prices.

Also "Tiny-Furniture" on eBay have great things at a good price. They're out of Russia, but for me have been reliable and a good value.

I would like to see two dozen or so typical “adventurer” characters of diverse but verisimilitudinous design, each with both a mounted and afoot version. Ponies and war dogs for smaller characters.

Finding good mounted adventurers has been a pain in the neck for the last 40 years.

Make that a hundred different ones. That would be better.

I have a bunch of different miniature horses for doing this. I usually use the same miniature as the foot version, cut it off around the waist, pin it to a straddling pair of hips and legs from a mounted medieval figure, and then mount it on one of the loose horses. In other words, a huge pain in the rear.

I would love to see more mounted figures too!

They're not exactly pretty, but they offer a flexible solution: if you have access to a 3D printer or are willing to pay a service to print them, there are a number of models out there (free & paid) of horses and other mounts with little platforms on them so you can drop a D&D-"medium"-based mini on top.

Finding them in a search is an inexact science but a few examples can be seen here: "28mm horse mount" 3D Models to Print - yeggi

I've printed up a few of these so my players can put their existing minis on horseback and I can do, for example, an attack by mounted bandits where horse and rider can be separated.

Sitting ones! :mad:

Pretty much impossible to find, unless you pay direct for metal and shipping.
... or have access to a 3D printer or are willing to pay someone who does to print some for you.

  • Humanoid PC/NPC minis whose body types fall somewhere in between the extremes of "supermodel" and "Jabba". Skinny minis abound and there are a few exaggeratedly fat ones, but not much else
  • Besides D&D I play a superheroes game, and more minis geared toward that genre would be welcome. Tearing the bases off old HeroClix only gets you so far.
  • More female variations of some of the races who would be commonly encountered in numbers - orcs, goblinoids, kobolds, etc. Maybe even some young versions of the above races, in case at some point I decide I want to portray a village or settlement in detail.
  • A female dragonborn barbarian with a halberd, so my daughter can finally have the perfect mini for her character :)
Oh, and I want these all as STLs so I can print as many of them as I need, on demand. :)
I think you can pose up, then buy the STL file, from Hero Forge. Probably could make workable kiddie half-orcs as well. Supers should be a doddle, if you don't get too ambitious.

Heroforge could make the Dragonborn figurine.

I remember the first character I made with HeroForge back in the day. I had backed their Kickstarter and got a free custom mini for doing so, but I had put off using it because HeroForge was so much more expensive than the other options. I wanted to save it for Something Special.

But it was impossible to find a dwarf mini that fit my character. And it wasn't even a complicated character! It was just a dwarf who was armed with a spear, that's all...not an axe, not a hammer, just a spear.

No matter how hard I looked, dwarf minis always had either an axe or hammer. Always. (Well, okay, almost always. Once I found one with a blunderbuss.) I could find dwarves armed with flagons of ale more easily than I could find dwarves armed with one of the oldest weapons in history. So I used HeroForge to customize my character, and now I can't stop. I'm addicted.

Back to the OP of this thread: I'd like to see non-stereotypical equipment. Dwarves that aren't armed with the same old axe or hammer. Wizards that aren't carrying the same old staff or book. That sort of thing.

Of course, what self-respecting dwarf would use such a primitive weapon? :D

I had the same problem with my current druid character - I wanted an elf with a staff who wasn't wearing wizard robes. No such thing, apparently, so I too went to HeroForge.

Tiny Furniture is finally coming out with miniatures I've been looking for... CORPSES! :D I also enjoy tavern and inn encounters, so they'll double as sleeping or passed out on the floor. TF's KS will be in April. : Tiny Furniture - Harvest of War

Likewise, Hand of Glory is back with their "hot swappable" hands, so that (gasp) your miniature actually depicts what your character is holding!!! No more dwarves holding crossbows or axes when they should be holding a tankard and being drunk as usual. Did I mention tavern and inn encounters? :D : Hand of Glory Modular Magnetic Gaming Miniatures

PIctured here are TF furniture, HoG adventurers (check out what the cleric is holding) and Loke Battlemats map. LB actually has a Town and Tavern KS going on right now... : Towns & Taverns. 2 Modular Books of Battle Mats for Roleplay

We've got a line coming to KS on April 14, and the project lead made it a point to create minis for stuff he hasn't found elsewhere. I can't give too much away but there should be enough deep cuts to satisfy those who are craving some unique minis. Also, there will be scenery available too :)

A full 44 mini set for Spelljammer with a space barge as the unique incentive piece
Love ideas like this. Years ago I ran Rise of the Runelords for Pathfinder. I bought every Reaper miniature intended for use with the campaign and painted them up. I would love to see a company license a WOTC adventure book and release a set of monsters covering every encounter. Kind of a Beadles and Grimm for miniatures painters.

There's more choice than ever before. Between the various Wizkids lines and Reaper Bones stuff you can get the vast majority of mins you may need for a fairly low price. So although coverage is great, I would love to see more minis that match the aesthetics I like. That's mainly:-
  • Female adventurers that wear sensible armour. Dark Sword minis have some amazing sculpts that I use for female PCs. They also have loads of minis sporting chainmail bikinis to be fair.
  • Monsters with an old-school look. I've not found anything as good as Otherworld Miniatures for this. Absolutely love the way a lot of their range looks like they've stepped straight from the pages of the 1e Monster Manual.
