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.

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
