More and more often, I keep thinking: "Man that's a cool avatar" or "wtf is that"

So instead of asking everyone separately, I'll ask everyone at once Wink

1) What is your Avatar of?
2) Why'd you choose it?


I'll start:

1) My avatar is the mini-logo for my website design company.
2) I choose it because I don't have any good models to use for it. (I'm working on it. =])

My avatar, is one of the many shapes of the mysterious Lord Siwoc.
In this he is Lord Commander of an Imperial Guard regiment, with subtle hints to his chaos background.

Drawn by a friend from another forum.

My avatar is a pic of my very first painted figure (well ok did try to paint a regiment of beastmen when I was 15, but never got the point of painting them uniform brown) - The figure represents my dwarven noble - Dugan ...proud leader of "Dugan's Daredevil Dungeoneers!"

1) My avatar is called Lulu la Tortue, it's the animal bodyguard of Captain Tortiou, leader of my Reiklanders. Lulu is a tough little turtle, she always stays at the feet of her master and if a duel goes wrong, she will heroically bite the toes of Captain Tortiou's foes.
Lulu la Tortue is another proof of Admin Tom's extraordinary skill with Green Stuff - he just sculpted the turtle himself and added it to the base of Captain Tortiou

(here's a pic of the whole mini: http://bp3.blogger.com/_QaVZICFVA8c/RY8y5C1GhPI/AAAAAAAAAFk/x1bKDKMwnCc/s1600-h/IMGP0029.JPG)

2) why do I use it as an avatar? Well, why not? cyclops It's just that I find this little turtle extremely cute and that the whole model of captain Tortiou and his turtle bodyguard was one of the best gifts I ever received! Thanks again, Admin Tom!
cheers

1) Cathayan Ronin conversion (usable as a Knights Vanguard from the Merchant Caravan warband or as a Officer from the Battle Monks warband)
2) It's the first model I did some conversion work on so I'm a bit melancholic about it.

Huh? what happened to my avatar?!

All right, that's it. Who took it?

I will leave the room for 5 minutes and I want to see my avatar right back in place when I come back. Understood? Good. *walks out*
