Figure Suggestions for WOTC post your thoughts (summary pg1)

The original poorly spelled, and mildly rude post has been removed.

All off topic posts in this thread have been removed. The Mighty Thor. Do not post in here again!!!!

WOTC, if you'd like to know some of the figures, that our community desires, this thread may (or may not) help.

Wytefang's summary

Back to the topic now...

1.Ceratopsidae mounted Orc (look it up, you all have access to wiki)
2. Hydra
3. Spartan 300
4. Zulu
5. War Elephants
6. Persian Immortals
7. A Drunken Master
8. Germans
9. Squad of Dragonlings (common but like 200 points)
10. Dreadgulls

... more will come when the alcohol wears off.

11. A shapeshifter with a d20 ability that copies 0-3 of your opponents abilities at the start of the round.
12. Hun archers on horseback
13. Ronin
14. Scottish Bagpiper hero
15. Egyptian necromancer who boosts the undead
16. Gargoyles
17. Chimera
18. Mountain Man...
19. ...with a pet bear
20. special forces

...more will still come

*Updated 02April08*

Things I've thought of myself and posted in this thread(cont.)

21. Common goblin squad of 5 figs that have a 'goblin movement bonding' (move the figs of any 1 goblin army card first) (Moves as much as 10 figs and attacks with five, albeit weak, attacks.)
22. Goblin Archer squad of 4
23. Goblin Hero, perhaps riding a scorpion
24. Squad of giant scorpions
25. Haitian Hoodoo (voodoo) practitioners
26. Capoeira street fighters
27. U.S. Army guy in a Tank
28. Squad of American Gladiators
29. Saxons and other Barbaric Hoards
30. Phoenix
31. Abominable snowman (not a yeti, something made from snow and ice)
32. Zen (blind) Archers
33. Cactus Monster
34. Carrion Birds
35. Flying Soulborgs
36. A human sized hivelord without a mount.
37. Armoc Warlord (beefier than Mittenz with a range 2 defense aura{we can call him gloves!})
38. Agent Squad with a defoliant ability (gets rid of trees).

Other people's ideas which I support:

Aboriginal Americans (Indians)
Medieval Longbowmen (Jandar?)
Confederate Soldiers
Aztec (not Indians)
Ents or Treefolk
Lizardmen units
1920 Mobster units
Amazons
Puddings/Oozes/Slimes
Alligators
Dark or Drow Elves
Arabic Warriors from the Crusades
French Musketeers
Shogun
Scarecrow figure
Bone Swarm
Dragon Hunter
Mummy squad
Cthulu (some kind of Mind Flayer)
Knights of the Crusades
Scythian Archers (mounted)
Ice Demon
Ogres
Riot Police
Russian Soldiers
Mother Spider (gives 'birth' to Fyorlags)

I would also like to see characters from the bios come to life, like Jotun's brothers or the race of lizard people that donated an arm to Valguard.

I'd like to see a complete round of the Kyries (Ullar, Vydar...)
Keep the Ninjas coming.
More monsters (I like the zombies, ghosts, vampires, etc.)
Sci-Fi stuff, more agents, cyborgs.
Agree with earlier suggestion of Spartans.


The outdoors is what happens when I'm going from one place to another.

Skeletons would be great.
Cowboy & Indians I would be happy with.
American civil war I would like even a cannon.
I would like to see the Gorrilanators get another unit of close combat perhaps?
War elephant is a sweet idea.
Pirates suck
I wouldn't mind seeing a motorcycle gang, just because its.. I don't know.. just hasn't' been done yet.

We need more dwarfs. We only have one that I'm aware of and we need more. I would love to see some common squads of dwarfs. Maybe a set of melee, ax wielding warriors, and some range, musket shooting hunters, etc. Dwarfs should have high defense, as they are known for their armor and weapon crafting. Maybe even a unique dwarf hero blacksmith who has some sort of armor/defense boosting aura?

Great trades with Onacara, Gypsy, SirGalahad, elltrain, generalgina, Concord, Just_a_Bill, LongHeroscaper, janus19390, and the very generous obfuscatedhippo.
