Big Boris.
Van Halfling.
Brother Bude and Shae.

I'm not sure if you would be allowed (or want) to use the spyglass figures, but Shae would fit very well as the elf archer archetype. Not to mention the fact that it never hurts to have some eye candy...
I think a cross wielding robed cleric would also fit nicely in netherhells, but something you would probably resculpt yourself.

Those Spyglass ones are mine now, but it's of little matter as I'd still hvae to sculpt her in 3-up form myself! Yes, clerics will be most useful in Netherhells forthier anti-demon defensive powers.

For some reason it's still the case in the UK that they work from original copies of the work at 3 times the size, which are then reduced in size and inscribed (in the same motion) into a steel block using a pantograph. Not entirely certain as to the benefits of this, but apparently it's how it's done. 3x the size is normally used, but for something like the dragon where such a size would be too difficult to fit under the pantograph arm, they might work from 2x or even 1.5 times the size. Yes, I asked about it... :angel:

So basically it just makes it easier at the copying end of it. Sounds very technical.  :mesostupid:

If they was in plastic wont it be possible to do multi options on the hero's?
Good/Dark representations could be as simple as a different head or weapon.
As an example:

Human warrior body -
Swords: 'good warrior' 'Generic' (lions head design on sword handle, clean and professional looking)one handed/2 handed
              'Dark warrior' 'chaotic' (leering faces on hilt, spiked ect)style sword/2 handed

This could go a long way just basing the body (torso and legs) as a frame, such as 2 head options, accessories ect ect

I would love to see a Demonology Wizard with Demonic familiars  :smile:

A counterpart could be some kind of cleric option or wotnot  :P

Let's say I can fit 5 or maybe 6 models onto one plastic frame for a boxed game, what should they be?

2 frontline fighter types
1 sneaky thief guy
1 crossbowman/archer
1 wizard
maybe one priesty magic guy too

Of the two frontline fighters one would be more aggressive and the other more defensive (and by defensive I'm talking table control & protecting the others rather than fully suited up in plate mail). The aggressive one might have a two handed weapon or two weapons or he could be sensible and sue a shield like the defensive guy (but in a more aggressive/careless manner).

You'd also want about two thirds of the group to be human. Maybe half at the least.

Hope that helps.

Sounds like one extremely well-armed fairy...

You haven't seen Tunnels & Trolls fairies :).

For an evil Bard, I wanted to do a Marilyn Manson style one.

To the very best of my memory Rjjagnjjar Hhjellstrjorm, Dwarven Bard (all the J's were silent) dressed in black studded leather armour with a silver skull shaped codpiece. He had an axe that was a guitar (or a guitar that was an axe, people weren't exactly certain) and made use of such spells as Summon Instrument, Pyrohtechnics, Obscuring Mist and some very foul lyrics indeed.

He was a rather memorable character (and thankfully not one of mine).

Of course, for a sci fi sprue we should have the Astronautical Reclamation & Salvage Engineers  :whistle:.
