This isn't exactly pertaining to the above poll - but I'd like to see the individual nations have different color pieces, like the Eagle Games do. The sculpting on the WOTR mini's is great; however, some of us with older eyes have a little trouble making out the details. Even though I already have a complete set of mini's, I'd go in for another set with different colors.
Some of those minis (such as Gandalf the White w or w/o Shadowfax, and Aragorn the King mounted or not) are available in the Lord of the Rings sets produced by Games Workshop. They are very nice minis and I have supplemented my game with them.
Some of the others are a great idea too for an expanded character game, which I have posted a thread on so I won't go into it again!
