Welcome to Librarium Online!
Personally I love the current look of the Casket, Scorpion, and SSC,s
A few that I love but would also like to see new models for are the Carrion and Ushabti models.
The model I would like to see revamped the most however is the Bone Giant. Everytime I look at it I am reminded of a grinning monkey or ape for some reason.
What are your thoughts on the current models and one's you would like to see revamped?
I'd like to see new tomb guard, swarms and horses. I think we'll be getting a new BG and TG in plastic.
I really like the ushabti, SSC and carrion models myself. Casket is cool as-is too.

Because Sun Tzu would play Tomb Kings...
I would like to see a plastic Ushabti - they are getting a lot more use now.
The one model I do not like in the TK army is the liche priest on foot, i think its horrible.
If they just redid the Liche priests, and anything resembling a skeleton - horsemen, bowmen, tomb guard. Then I'd be happy.
While I would like plastic Ushabti i really like the pose of the current models, and the rest of the range is great in my opinion. Particularly scorpions and the Casket.

I'd like the troops to get nicer bodies and horses, I would also like a wider range of character models. Possibly new Bone Giant and/or catapult.

The casket is great...but I'd like the see the casket priest, and all priests, redone. They look like the joker in batman. I'm not terribly dispelased with the skellies themselves in our skellie units, but the rags, jewelery, and weapons are horrible (the shields and that round shoulder/chest armor piece are fine, as is the TG helmet). TKs are great, horses are horrible, SSC is great, giant is horrible, Ushabti are AWESOME, scorpions are acceptable, chariots are great (crew are acceptable, horses, again, horrible). Swarm....I honestly haven't ever seen one.

Wishlisting time yay!!!! I'll jump on the bandwagon for new ponies (these are actually worse then the metal ER's from the HE line ie snickering horse..... and i didnt think that was possible), skeleton warriors and tomb guard would be nice (more options and different poses) but I wouldnt loose any sleep if they didnt. heroes are a must we have 2 liche priest (including the CoS) and 2 princes/kings.... variety please????.
The SSC doesnt really need to be done IMHO, its unique. The Bone Giant would be nice if re-done but I cant see it happening.... though in a cheezy way I think it looks cool. Ushabti, Carrion, Chariots (minus the ponies) and scorpians DO NOT need to be redone, sure plastic Ushabti would be nice but are not necessary. New Swarms would be a tad redundant......

My top 3 figs that need a makeover are:
#1 Giant Boner. Seriously, this guy looks like he could be in a disney movie.
#2 Tomb Guard. They need more definition, they looks just like skeletons with the addition of the collar.
#3 Tomb King/Prince Model.
They need to give us a better looking tomb king on chariot, or give us the option aswell to put the tomb king on a horse, and buffer up our cavalary, so it gives us a bigger variety...... i wish the priest on the horse looked cooler too.
most of all, Ushabti, Scorpions, BG, COS, and tomb guard ALL need to be plastic pronto.
and maybe put ushabti in a boxed set? 4 for 30$? that'd be nice

A new head for the bone giant; I don't mind the rest of it so much, but the head looks like a monkey. I would seriously buy the current bone giant if GW offered a new head which came in a blister pack, Ha! Imagine that!
I agree that the ushabti should be plastic. They wouldn't need to really change the models as they are; just make them plastic and I would buy them. 4 to a box sounds reasonable. At the moment GW has no hope of getting my money for the overpriced metal ones.
I think the scorpions look a tad strange, but I don't mind so much; I'd like to see at least one variation on the existing one for people who take two in their armies.
Probably my biggest gripe is with the plastic skellies; why do we have to use the Vampire Count weapons??? I find it pretty appalling. I had to scab Tomb Kings swords off my chariots and my archer unit just to make a unit of HW/S skellies that didn't look like crap. If they made a plastic tomb guard box they would share the same weapon sprue, which should suit GW's cost-saving aims.
On the whole i think the TK models are fairly good (especially the ssc), and anything I don't like I am happy to customise, but I think other people should have the freedom to have really nice models off-the-shelf. One thing I can't change though are the horses, and it would be great to see some new (better) ones; problem is I don't really trust GW to do a good job of it; they'll probably just bring out something crappier and up the price. Or am I being a tad cynical?
