My "top twelve" list hasn't changed much since I posted my list in June 2015. GHQ did the WWI Birmingham a few years ago, and the Duquesne and Idaho in the last cycle. Otheewise, GHQ hasn't been very good to me. My list now is:

1. DD Melpomene class. The small French DD. Le Fier would be an acceptable substitute
2. AC Waldeck Rosseau. This WWi protected cruiser had six funnels. Maybe not a
particularly good reason to choose this ship, but it just fascinates me.
3. DD Akatsuki. Between CinC and GHQ, nearly all the other WWII IJN DDs are covered.
Only the Wakatake is left (according to my reference book).
4. BB Iowa. Not a big difference from the Missouri, but the bridge is different, and B turret
has a different arrangement of AA guns.
5. DD Maestrale or Oriani classes. These classes were similar, so one model could be
used for both classes. CinC already does (or did) either the Folgore or Freccia
class, so I'd like to see GHQ produce something a little different.
6. BB Malaya. The only U.K. BB that needs to be added. "Tiny Thingmajigs" on
Shapeways has one; I may order that model if I get around to making an order with
them.
7. CA York. (Shapeways has one now.)
8. CA Suss ex. I think this model could be used for four different U.K. CAs.
9. CLAA Scylla. Two ships in this class.
10. predreadnought Braunschweig (I still don't guarantee the spelling). I want to fill out the German battle fleet at Jutland.
11. CL Uganda class. There were 3 ships in this group.
12. I don't have a twelfth one in mind; I doubt I'll live long enough to see the first eleven, so there's no need to hurry my decision.

I don't know if this is already on the list but if not I'd like to put the Italian BB Roma on it. She had a higher freeboard than her sisters Littorio and Vittorio Veneto as well as differences to her bridge structure and AA armament. Enough so that I believe it justifies a new model. Also, it would be able to represent the Impero. In my imagi-world I'd complete her.

My "top twelve" list has changed a bit since I posted this list in June 2015. GHQ did the WWI Birmingham last year, & the Duquesne and Idaho more recently. GHQ still hasn't been very good to me. My "want list" down below is what's left from my original list:

1. DD Melpomene class. The small French DD.
2. AC Waldeck Rosseau. This WWi protected cruiser had six funnels. Maybe not a
particularly good reason to choose this ship, but it just fascinates me.
3. DD Akatsuki. Between CinC and GHQ, nearly all the other WWII IJN DDs are covered.
Only the Wakatake is left (according to my reference book).
4. BB Iowa. Not a big difference from the Missouri, but the bridge is different, and B turret
has a different arrangement of AA guns.
5. DD Maestrale or Oriani classes. These classes were similar, so one model could be
used for both classes. CinC already does (or did) either the Folgore or Freccia
class, so I'd like to see GHQ produce something a little different.
6. BB Malaya. The only U.K. BB that needs to be added. "Tiny Thingmajigs" on
Shapeways has one; I may order that model if I get around to making an order with
them.
7. CA York. Shapeways does this ship now.
8. CA Suss ex. I think this model could be used for four different U.K. CAs.
9. CLAA Scylla. Two ships in this class.
10. predreadnought Braunschweig (I don't guarantee the spelling). I want to fill out the German battle fleet at Jutland.

I'm not gonna add any new ships to my want list. At my age (79 - God, that's old) I doubt they'll get to what I already want in my lifetime. OTOH, if they don't, I plan on haunting them unmercifully after I die!

Still haven't made an order with WTJ so I can get a good model of Branschweig ("Silver Rule;" never put off 'til tomorrow what you can put off 'til the next day.). I don't think WTJ has the Rosseau, but I don't remember for sure.

Here's my 5 cents worth

WWII UK destroyer V & W-classes, long-range escort conversions

WWII UK light cruisers Scylla & Charybdis

WWII UK Fleet Air Arm aircraft (Blackburn Skua, Fairey Albacore, Fairey Barracuda, Fairey Firefly, Fairey Fulmar, Gloster Sea Gladiator, and/or Hawker Sea Hurricane)

WWII UK aircraft carrier Indomitable

WWII Japan destroyer Akatsuki ((暁)-class

I'm going to cast some votes for the 1/1200 napoleonic micronauts. It's been a long time since any manufacturer released a new ship so the market is there for the taking!

- British 1st Rate 120 guns Caledonia - the British standard for post-Trafalgar 1st Rates.
- British 3rd Rate 74 guns Vengeur - the so-called Surveyors class of 40 ships, also known as the 'forty thieves' due to alleged short cuts in the dockyards!
- British 5th Rate Frigate 44 guns Indefatigable - cos I'm fed up with American frigates winning.
- British 5th Rate Frigate 40 guns Endymion
- Generic Collier - not very exciting but huge numbers and great targets for skirmishes and small convoys
