Since were stuck in our homes and without anything to look forward to because of COVID-19, I thought it would be a little fun to start wishlisting about certain models and miniatures we would like to see.

In this case, I'm not talking about new units for certain armies or ideas for entire new armies, such as Kroot, Hrud ,Exodites, or Dark Mechanicum, for example.

I want to know about what you would like to see GW would do as a sort of "One-Off". Blackstone Fortress gave us some cool miniatures such as the Man-of-Iron, the Zoat, and the Ambull. What would be miniatures in that genre that you would like to see?

Any Alien creatures? Any specific Chaos beasties? Or any weird representation of an imperial profession?


For example:

Grox are lore-wise the most widespread form of livestock that the Imperium uses a foodstock, yet we haven't seen anything about them since their first appearance in Rogue Trader, outside of references in books.

Not really what you’re asking, but i’d like to see some Inquisitors. Any Imperium player can use them so there’s wide appeal and can be added to various different armies.

Would appeal to me more than yet another Space Marine character.

Enslavers would be an interesting one. They are effectively an entire faction in one model.

Androgynous Daemon Prince of Slaanesh





Norwalk, Connecticut

I’d love to see a one-off run of Azazel (daemon prince of Slaanesh, was originally the brother-in-law-to-be to Sigmar, he killed his own sister and attempted to kill Sigmar as a young man to cement his daemonhood). We got a model of him back in WHFB 5th, an update would be awesome. The daemon who has personally ruined Sigmar’s life should absolutely make some form of return now that Sigmar has an entire game named after him.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

I second the Thunderwarrior. I'd also like to see the Clawed Fiend of the Donorian Sector. And Enslavers.

Is there a difference between a normal Clawed Fiend and one of the Donorian Sector. We do have a miniature for a Clawed Fiend.

I’m a fan, model wise, of Canoptik Necron models. They remind me of “animal” robots. They also seem to be the catch-all for non-humanoid robots, and I think they’re the more interesting models.

I don’t own any, but whenever I think of starting a Necron force, I’m always thinking of building a Canoptik-Heavy force.
So I’d like to see more of those.

Right behind you.

One-off "veteran" or "signature" units for Guard Regiments, Marine Chapters, Craftworlds, etc.

Kasrkin for Cadians, Catachan Devils for the Catachans, Omnis-armored Raven Guard with lightning claws, Pathfinders for Alaitoc, etc.

I'd want them to be matronly, and large. They'd be somewhat akin to Chapter Masters.

IIRC, that's just a space marine in thunder armor (mk1). The astartes used thunder armor until the end of the unification wars, when the emperor made his alliance with mars and the mechanicum started supplying them with crusade armor (mk2). A true thunder warrior would probably look a bit different.

Bran Redmaw as a werewolf
Taken from the wiki
Spoiler:
Bran is transformed into a huge ravenous wolf-beast; fully twelve feet tall, powerful, fast, and with claws that can rend Plasteel and fangs like Adamantium daggers. Consumed by a frenzied bloodlust, this Wulfen, the Redmaw, tears its foes apart in an orgy of blood. But despite the creature's bestial appearance, Redmaw is no mindless killer. The beast still retains a hunter's cunning, using stealth and patience to close with its prey before pouncing upon them in an explosion of bloody violence.

A decent wulfen so I can use it over and over to replace the awful current models.
