Definitely,  get those photos up from the start! So no old fashioned hard copy photos? We do tend to take for granted the ease with which we can record our projects these days.

Malamute, she's really a true countess and a lovely vampiress, don't she?!  :-*  

Do you have any suggestions on a suitable miniature to represent her?

I've always used this figure as my Vampire Queen of the Damned. An old RAFM sculpt.

A very nice lady, Malamute! I believe she is a Bob Murch sculpt from the early 90s; I used to have a caped male vampire from the same range, with the original sword swapped for a big clawed hand holding a human heart!

But I was thinking in a miniature more... err... dressed, in a way that the players can identify her as Ingrid Pitt/Countess Mircalla at once!  ;)

You said all, Elk101! And a little sad as well, because I really would like to have some pictures of old games with some old fellows already gone...  :'(   I think it's a matter of habit, and nowadays with all the digital gadgets available it's really much easier to record our projects and games than in the 80s/90s, when we always forget to bring the camera along!  lol

I htink you will be hard pushed to find a perfect Ingrid as in the photo as she doesn't resemble a Vampire at all. Perhaps a civilain type figure or maybe for a more stylised approach some of the old GW vampires, they did several (dressed) female countess types drinking blood from goblets.

Great idea, Malamute, the Citadel vampires from the 80s have lots of character!

What about that Reaper one?


With the right "Karnstein painting scheme", of course"...  ;)

Dark sword have some very nice ladies, but I wouldn't like to use a miniature easily associated with a Game of Thrones character!

So it's gonna be the Reaper one, because as you said, Malamute, a blood goblet is a classical touch!  :)

Philhelm, thank you for your interest, but I've recently had extensive surgery in my right hand, so my hobby things will be postponed for a while...  (I am posting this from my tablet at the hospital right now!)  BUT the forced "bed time" has been given me some very nice ideas! (concerning the hobby, I mean) ;)
