PostSubject: Odd little figure Anyone tell me where its from?   Fri 18 Mar 2011 - 20:05

I received an odd figure from a recent purchase and I am wondering if anyone can tell me about it. it is very similar to a male Empire Bright Wizard from the promotional figure from the Empire Army Box circa 2006... but this one has the head of the Sister's Auger. It isn't a kit bash it is a cast model. They obviously got a little lazy and added a woman's head and breasts or changed it from female to male /shrug... I think it will be a cool addition to my warband. Any comments would be helpful. I have pictures of the Male and Mine below.

What I was wondering is did they make two one male and one female for the army set and then randomly put them in? I can find references for the male figure but not the female. I just want to find out what the figure is... perhaps just a female bright wizard. Tab on bottom reads the same as the male version. "EMPIRE" and GAMES WORKSHOP on other side.

it looks like conversion of male, limited mage of fire and Augar from SoS Wink but i'm sure for 100% that in Army Deal for Empire was only male mage... and i have never seen this girl before Wink

That is kinda interesting if you have not seen it Gobo as it seems you are quite versed in the line. If anyone has the same figure I would be curious as to its orgin and if it was a general release or LE or what not. Thanks again Gents for your input.

Cheers,

Arvenger

I had always wondered why the male Wizard had bare arms. They look much better on the female version, with the decolletté and such.
I couldn't believe it at first, but it really looks like the exact had from the Augur. Maybe someone kidbashed it first and later cast the result? Is something like that possible? How good is the quality of the mini?

It appears seamless and I don't see any marring at all from an grinding away of the previous head and doesn't appear to be green stuff sculpted.
