|I'd love to use this mini, it just doesn't fit.|
Werner Klocke does great work, so I'm separating his out:
Female caster with staff and sword
Female in armor with sword
Female caster with (separate) familiar
Female caster(ish) in armor with sword
Female hunter (pre-Sorscha)
Caster with many details
Fireballer with flaming sword
Generic caster with spell effect
Generic with pistol
Generic with hopefully removable head
And the dudes:
"Alas, poor Yorrick" caster
Caster with clingy zombie
Generic conquistadorish, needs more hair
As you might have guessed, most of my ideas are for casters. I'm trying to avoid just using the closest PP mini as it seems like a bit of a cop-out to plunk down a Greylord from my Khador army. Of course the fact that Zerkova (closest match) is more horsefaced than Sarah Jessica Parker doesn't help...

|A different sort of gun mage.|
Plus there's the small issue of finding a group, but I'm hoping that resolves itself with little fuss.
Also in recent news, I finally have a Dust army to push around on the table. When I put the order in the Revised Core Set was out of stock which put a sizable spanner in the works since the plan incorporated most of the pieces in it. Of course you can only get those in that particular box, which is a rant I've indulged in elsewhere, so I went back to the drafting table to hammer out a collection that could stand by itself until I could get the Core-only models. After a pair of speedy field tests with EV I found my force to be fit for fighting. Of course the real test remains: painting. In addition to figuring out a scheme (I'd like something at least inspired by what the Germans wore while fighting in Russia) there's the question of mold lines and bent barrels. Mold lines aren't as bad as they could be, though they're far from wonderful while also being trickier than usual to get to since the minis are already assembled. Part of me wants to embrace the economy of the game and just paint them as-is, stock primer and all. The rest of me knows that I'll get halfway through the first squad and wish I'd taken the time to clean them properly. I think I'll give it a week or three to simmer and see how it looks after a couple more games.
