Can I put townsfolk as choices 1-8? If not, then:

1- villagers/townsfolk
2- dead adventurers
3- Valorian personalities (to include sluice masons)
4- Seated minis (tavern patrons)
5- Adventurers
6- humanoid Monsters
7- large single bad ass monsters
8- mounted minis

Seated, sleeping, dead, angry... certain common poses and expressions are under-represented.

Between the current DF townfolk set and the decent selection in Bones there's a pretty good set of stereotypical townsfolk in quality plastic available or in process, but not a lot that go outside of the stereotype. Female craftsmen, male bakers... Also, other races as townsfolk (I have zero elven or dwarven villagers).

I guess I'm the outlier, but I use DF pretty much exclusively for combat; therefore, I am only interested in minis where they usefully illustrate combat conflict: adventurers, monsters, dead folks, etc. Villagers don't really do too much for me - although i do like the idea of an angry mob, if anything.

Our vote - once counting could be completed was:

villagers/townsfolk
dead adventurers
Valorian characters

After that largely indifferent.

We appreciate that there are many other manufacturers of Townsfolk mins but they mostly all have one thing in common:

Supplied unpainted.

Seated
Townsfolk

also -Leaning - looking for minis that have a flat back edge to them that could be butted up against a wall (i have several hundred really nice walls...) or a tree. The rogue leaning suspiciously against a wall, old man smoking a pipe, cutpurse peeking around a corner, one mini boosting another up...

My favorite DF mini is the climbing ratman - it makes the terrain come alive - we need more minis that are designed to work with walls and corners... someone spider climbing, someone crawling into or out of a CBS window, hanging from a crenelation (trying not to fall, or breaching the wall?), a new take on the blowpipe lizardman to go with our water terrain and terrain trays, crawling figure for narrow burrows sections

I am most interested in under represented minis such as gnomes and halflings. Dwarves and Elves have gotten plenty of the lime light. I'd like to see an amazing Gnomish Arcane Trickster, a Halfling Paladin, etc. By the way, all of the minis shown in the bean look fantastic. Love that hooded figure and the dead bodies.

A great option floated on another thread is a 2-part mini; the legs and the torso are separately cast and have a peg to connect them. You could have a seated version by just swapping out the legs with a standing version.

So for each mini, you would have 3 parts: A torso, seated legs, and standing legs.

This also might work for mounted legs, but I realize the mount size is subjective. (Horse, wardog, elephant, etc. all have different widths)
Good Idea. Would need some thought into how the arms are positioned to make sense for each configuration.

The poll should allow multiple choices to get a more accurate sense of where to focus.

My top three are
Seated
Town
Dead
