I notice that for the plebs* version of the game, which witch is which is done through colour coordination: the colour of the background of the picture of the witch is presumably the colour cone you should use.

However, I see no matching of the pewter figurines to the appropriate witch in the rules. ((This may be caused by my myopia - I am good at not spotting the obvious. But I suspect it is another pewter error [to quote the line first used by

, which is far too good to only be used once])). The rules tell us to take the witch piece that matches the image on the trainee witch display, but those are not pictures of the figurines.

So, which witch is which? In the standard picture of the witches:



Am I right in saying that they are, from left to right
Petulia (with the pig)
Dimity (with the book)
Tiffany (with the frying pan)
Annagramma (with her hands on her hips)
?

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Sounds right to me!

(Not based on any knowledge of the game -- mine hasn't arrived yet -- but from the books.)

You are correct. Tiffany has her frying pan she used to fight the queen of the elves. Petulia is the best pig witch in Lancre. Annagramma is good, but not as good as she thinks. Dimity maybe had a handful of sentences in all the books.

Yes, my reasoning went something like: "Tiffany would have the frying pan; Petulia is the pig witch, Annagramma is haughty; and then there's Dimity."

I knew this discussion, and even the joke seemed familiar.

Yeah, I've seen discussion, and even pictures, about this too. I plan to do the same.

I would paint them if I had enough miniature painting skills, or knew someone I could trust to do them to my standards.

I have done this yesterday evening. I used a glue gun and simple wooden discs - the metal miniatures fit nicely on them and are standing very stable now. Plus the colors are now clear to every player

I will post pictures later today...

I glued the Witches on colored bases, so they have a good stand and are easily recognized with the player colors:

I just purchased the CE and I'm interested in doing this as well, so I was curious as to where I obtain these wooden discs. Do I need to acquire a metric tonne of each color in order to do this or is there somewhere that I can just get the four I'm after?

The easiest is to take them from a game that you have but don't use.

There's stores that sell components, even individually, but shipping for just 4 discs might be expensive. Not sure.
I don't remember which ones are recommended in the US for sure, but if you look into the Print and Play/Prototyping community here on BGG, I'm sure there's likely a list of stores/suppliers where you can get small quantities.
Ok, some googling gave me this:

And this one is run by a BGG member:

Hope this helps.

I'm afraid I can't help you with that - I ordered from a German shop, http://www.Spielmaterial.de

Thanks! Maybe I can check with a couple of my FLGS's.

Also what size did you use for those? 15mm x 4mm?
