D&D Minis for Keep on the Shadowfell

So I'm reading Keep on the Shadowfell when it occures to me. Wouldn't it be neat if there was a mini for some of the named NPC creatures.

Irontooth, Balgron the Fat, and Splug, and the Hobgoblin torturer would be neat.

Are any of these represented in the latest D&D minis? If not, dose anyone have any idea if Wizards will have these guys in future sets?

Yeah, I was thinking this earlier today. Meepo turned up in a few different incarnations, didn't he?

Here's what I use, more or less. Most of these figures are uncommon or commons, so they're pretty easy to find and get cheaply. Each one is linked to the image of the miniature. I hope that this is useful, because this took bloody FOREVER!

Wow, I totally didn't read the original post. I spend about three hours listing a hugely detailed list for the entire module....when that wasn't the question.

If it's any consolation, your list has saved me enormous amounts of browsing to find the better-looking kobolds and goblins, so you've helped someone.

Since we've veered off topic, I'll just add that www.fierydragon.com has some excellent free paper counters for KOTS. I printed them out and glued them to some thin cardboard, and made some excellent counters for my KOTS playtest this weekend. :)

EDIT: I'll also add that the minis list up there is incomplete without suggestions for the 5 pregen characters in the module, plus the other three pregens Wizards provided online. ;)

You are an evil, evil man!

I wonder if I gathered all these together and sold them on ebay as a Keep on the Shadowfell monster pack if I'd get any people interested in buying them for a small profit?

All I can say to that is I would have definitely bought it if it had been available earlier in the week. I run KOTS this weekend. :)
