I love what you guys are doing, I’m in the middle of moving, but can’t wait to settle in and order those French Resistance, that looks like it’ll be one of my favorite sets! I for one like the war-dog packs in the Dark Age Irish set, I’ll be using them as fantasy wolf packs, wargs, hellhounds, and more – would love to see a little something different added into the boxed sets like that: robot sentry guns in a colonial marine set, for example, or war=rats in a goblin set, etc.
I love Falk’s suggestion of grey aliens – or something that could double as generic “little green men” by way of head swaps?
Spoopumz’ suggestion of generic hooded cultists is another great suggestion, usable in the Dark Ages, fantasy, pulp horror, and they can also be used as a sci-fi faction too (see Star Wars or Doctor Who or The Black Hole!), so don’t be afraid to include some sci-fi options!
I think the way those lizard-men and spiders come with fantasy-vs-scifi options adds great flexibility, would love to see more of that (your proposed space-orcs in the survey seem like a great set for a mix of fantasy and sci-fi options! And Star Wars and Star Trek made routine use of Space Orcs – Klingons, for example – just downplay the over-the-top Warhammer musculature a bit), 80s sci-fi was also full of fantasy/sci-fi crossovers, from Star Wars to Masters of the Universe to Yor: Hunter from the Future… modern games could benefit from playing around more with that sort of genre-bending.
I think some Wild/Weird Western sets would be a lot of fun: cowboys vs. injuns, white-hat lawmen vs. black-hat rustlers and bank robbers, cowboys vs. lizard-men, cowboys vs. ghouls…. How about hillbilly Hatfields vs. McCoys (or vs. “revenuers”? Hillbillies vs. little green men, or vs. hooded cultists? Maybe that’s just me, but I love the outside-the-box stuff nobody else would do, and figuring out new uses for them! I don’t know how much of a market there is out there for the weird stuff, but I for one love it,
Anyway, please keep doing what you’re doing with the off-the-beaten-path sets, they’re great stuff!
