Interesting....what would you think about a small KS between the two Terrain kickstarters that was ONLY miniatures? 50 figures or so...
I would be in it up to the neck in a heartbeat. Truly. As long as they were painted. In fact, I don't think DF should offer minis that are not painted. Everybody else's stuff is plain base material. DF can outshine them all, even with simple bands of commoners!

Just think of it, 50 unique miniatures, maybe each in 2 different paint schemes. That's 100 types. All ages, ethnicities, fashions, and occupations. I would spend a lot, I know it.

I also don't think our miniatures are worse than others...our sculptors are top notch. Perhaps it's because you are seeing the sculpts after being made in Dwarvenite...some sharpness is lost in the process...the original sculpt are superb....we could offer them in metal (for those who paint) and in dwarvenite for those who have no time for painting...

I like the idea:)
It wouldn't infringe on our usual offerings, and could be much less complex....(low budget)

Trying to resurrect this thread due to the topic coming up in KS Comments again earlier today.

If you want Valoria to be populated, please give it a thought and maybe even show some support.

I hope that DF sticks to terrain. While I have some of their villages, I have dozens and dozens of other village miniatures and don't need more.

Terrain, yes. Miniatures, no thanks.

Lots of sources out there for metal and plastic peasants, villagers, ruffians, bandits, farmers, townsfolk, etc. I have close to 300, with no duplicates. Most in the $1.50-$3.00 range.
I know, I know. But how many are pre-painted? Almost none. How many have the durability of Dwarvenite? Almost none. How many of them are available from a single source? Very few. This is my point. DF can do it and probably do it better than anyone else.
I doubt DF could do up the variety available today, even if they chose to focus solely on that as a KS theme.

50+ from Wargames Foundry
40+ from Mirliton
30+from Blue Moon
20+ from Mega Miniatures
50+ from Stonehaven
20+ from Lead Adventure

plus Perry, Reaper, Warlord, North Star, Gripping Beast, Brigade Games, etc.

No disrespect to DF, but there's just too much out there already...and I wouldn't say figures were their strong point. Terrain...they rock. :D

Anyhow, good luck in your [re]quest... :)
