WHFB Dogs of War for me. They were the last few things I bought from fantasy many years ago. I have absolutely zero need for them though being a 40k player.

I really, really want a copy of Neave Blacktalon from the Blightwar set to convert to a female Lord Celestant, but not until I can find a copy on ebay for less than 30+ dollars.

Not gonna lie, but I really want the Time of Legends: Joan of Arc KS stuff. I can't justify getting it when I already have BattleLore, and I'd have to drop $300+ to get what I'd want.

The Darklands stuff from Mierce. Game looks interesting (very crunchy) and the models are cool, but it’s so niche I’d never get to play a game even if I had multiple forces (thanks to the mentioned super-crunchyness)

these new Deathguard models look sweet. thankfully i can paint them on commission to get them out of my system. i tried 8th, but didnt care for it.

Certainly not!

Still have female IG from Victoria's that I got this summer.

Do not need!

Never mind I've been looking to get some guys like this for 20+ years...

I want separate armies of vostroyans, steel legion and tallarn, even though I got a huge IG army, and I no longer play 40k. I have managed to keep myself from pulling the trigger on those "projects", and I hope my resolve holds up.

I know it's cliche, but a titan maniple from Forgeworld would be up there for me (Just finished reading Warlord: Fury of the God Machine).

And a Legion Glaive, that thing is just too damn cool.

I adore the look of the two Eldar titans. I would love to have a Phantom and two Revenants.

The cost is quite stiff, but if I spread them out, I could do it. But the other problem is I have absolutely no experience with resin monsters like that, so I'm not sure I have the skill to build them well.

Salamanders are the best chapter.

Are there any miniatures that you want, but because they don't serve a purpose have not gotten?

Here are the ones I found that inspired this... The Valkeeri from Hydra miniatures. Space girls with ray guns in bikinis...

The yellow paint scheme on these look nice... If I ever did get them, I would probably try to mimic that.

Mine aren't around anymore.

I REALLY wanted the Crooked Dice "Time Traveler" minis.

They were basically unofficial Doctor Who minis that included all of the newer Doctors, their companions, and variations on some of them. There were also a few of the older Doctors and their companions.

Then Warlord got the rights and the minis disappeared without a trace. Which is really a shame because the Warlord ones look... not good, to me.

Moral of the story: if it's a model you want and will enjoy, get it while you can. You never know if it may become unavailable before you can figure out how to use it.

Why? I have no idea! Wouldn't you want a skirmish scale gangster game to be 28mm? Yes. Then why choose 15mm?

Easier to paint and store..... maybe?
