I'm glad you will be making more figurine pieces, including a figurine dragon. With that, and substituting cougars for lions, I'll be able to set up Caïssa Britannia. Many of the other pieces you mention will probably fit with various variants, though I'm not sure how distinct the eagle and mammoth will be from the hawk and elephant you already have. A lion piece would probably be popular, because many variants include lions, and the lion can be easily distinguished from the cougar by including the mane.

Since the main designer of the pieces is also the founder of the House of Staunton, I'm under the impression that the House of Staunton has more to do with these pieces than just selling them. Anyway, I put the emphasis on the House of Staunton, because this site is an affiliate of the House of Staunton, and I earn money for the site when people go through my affiliate links to the House of Staunton to buy these pieces. Also, I want to enourage people to buy them through the House of Staunton over Amazon, because they are cheaper that way, and the House of Staunton pays its affiliates better than Amazon does.
