One of the biggest disappointments about my use of miniatures in the Dwimmermount campaign is my reliance on those pre-painted plastic ones WotC put out a few years ago. Most of them don't quite look the way I'd like them too, but they have the advantage of being cheap and convenient, so I use them while I assemble a better collection of Otherworld and similar old school miniatures.
Another disappointment is that, so far, none of the PCs has a unique miniature. That is, none of the players has a special mini that's been chosen and painted to represent their character. We're trying to change that, but, as with everything else, the difficulty is in finding appropriate miniatures for the task. While I trust my other players to be able to find their own minis, my 10 year-old daughter isn't quite as adept at this sort of thing. Moreover, her character, Iriadessa the Magic-User, is a 14 year-old girl. Finding a mini to represent her is tough.
So, here's my question: can anyone point me to a mini -- or, better yet, a selection of minis -- that be up to the task of representing a teenaged magic-user? I'm pretty open to a wide variety of options, although the minis need to be in the 25-28mm range rather than anything smaller or large.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
