I'm currently working on some RPG Heroes sets and kinda get stuck on naming/tittle issues.
Set #1 ------- - Necromancers (first choice name for both characters and whole set tittle) - or perhaps Necrocasters (as all these figurines are some kind of mages and/or casters)?
BTW there will be not only greyish and greenish (Orkish?) versions but also human characters (so not only skin tone but also no more Orkish long ears) in the set. + a lot of additional effects (spells, fireballs, levitating stones, skulls or even corpses -not sure though, might be too drastic?!) and some accessories (wands, spell scrolls and books etc.)
Set #2 ------- - Reptilions - or perhaps Snake Lords or Snake Warriors?
I'd like to build whole set based on this idea/figurine - so warriors with shields and swords, warriors with lances, casters, banner bearers etc.
So I'd appreciate any comments or further ideas regarding naming / tittles (or any other requests or suggestions)
In the first set, if the band around their throats was a silver metal, then perhaps one could run an adventure where those things were the key to solving a riddle. The players would be searching for the "neck chrome answers".
I'm a fan of 'Serpent Lords' myself. My one suggestion for reptile/snake - humanoids, is they are more appealing to me with lizard feet. It doesn't look as interesting when I see minis that have a snake head and tail, and then...boots. They just look wrong to me.

Since Squirmydad has opened up the digit question; I was going to mention that the five fingers in the Reptilion sketch look a little out of place. I read a newspaper story when I was a kid about a Canadian paleontologist who did a thought experiment about how a large brained dinosaur might have evolved into a humanoid. It only had three fingers and a thumb. I will see if I can find some images.
Edit: actually, it had two fingers and a thumb. Google "Dinosauroid" if you are looking for inspiration.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

wyvern: Nah, just rewatched the 1931 Universal "Dracula" movies (the Lugosi one and the Spanish version)
