One of the things I like about the game is that I can easily put together the figures I need from my existing collection of D&D minis.
My first warband is made up entirely from D&D pre paints; the random selection minis that Wizards of the Coast used to sell.
I haven't thought of names yet, and as I have yet to play I don't know if this is a sensible selection for a warband, only time will tell.
The minis will do 'as is', but I will probably touch up the paintwork (the thug in the middle of the front rank has already been repainted and based), which could be distinctly dodgy at times. I would also like to include some sort of emblem,or at least a unifying spot colour, to tie them in as a group.
the items at the front are the six treasure tokens that came with the backer's version of the game, they should be easy to paint.
