From time to time I hang around on ebay, snapping up the odd bargain here and there. One thing I don't snap up, though, are Citadel's old range of Villagers & Townsfolk.
The reason is simply because the prices they command regularly take them out of my league.
Naturally, that gets me thinking. While some wargames manufacturers do produce a few figures (I started my new collection with some of Gripping Beast's civilians, and they're a nice range), for the most part we're left with proxies or paper folks to represent the beggars, street performers, tavern regulars, traders, local nobility, herdsmen, peasant labourers and expert hirelings that our heroes meet regularly in our games. It seems to me that a new range of such personalities would serve a demand and should sell quite well, if the prices they command second-hand are anything at all to go by.
