Default What models or bitz do you wish were made, but aren't?

I'm curious, what models or bitz do you wish were made, but aren't? We all know there are holes in the model line. Models or bits that aren't made or aren't made well. Things that you have to make yourself or do without. It doesn't have to be anything big, necessarily, but it does need to be something you'd really use.

Let's hear your wish list.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

Well modeled Kroot.

Blegh.

TEH ARMS DON'T FIT! I hear people cry.


I agree with the crying people. :P

Lightning Power Claws for power armour.

All that can be done for them now is to buy a veteran blister, which is kind of ugly....

Guardsmen arms with real rifles. Like the Tallarn rifles from Forge World, but not only Tallarn, and for normal guys. I'm tired of Carbines and Assault rifles.

As previously mentioned, lightening claws on power armor. Also, a thunder hamer on power armor(in either hand).

A needle pistol(inquisition) and combi needler.

Hell, half the daemon hunter retinue options need models.

A Necron destroyer lord.

Rough riders on bikes.

Storm shields for power armor. Being able to take either storm or combat shields on the same unit makes subbing really messy.

FW with markerlight.

Gue'vsa with markerlight/pulse rifles.

A marker for blast/ordinance sized templates that remain in play.

A vehicle sized ruined terrain piece. It'd be nice to more properly show a destroyed vehicle as terrain, without making it a balancing act involving expensive, painted models.

a proper kit for drones. The cheapest way of getting a 'proper' shield drone (by that I mean not converted) is getting a pathfinder shas'ui :\

an assault rifle that looks real would be nice for the IG. The las gun looks more like a toy, and it is over sized.

decoy launcher and mulitrackers for vehicles. More lightning claws for chaos raptors. So you do not have to buy a 15 dollar lord model.
