The caucasian male Krav Maga agent is known as Michael Madsen.
Syvaris is known as Syv, which means seven in danish.
Raelin is called Roevlin, which translates as ASSlin in danish, by the kids where I work.
Some other figures are sometimes called by the direct danish translation of their original english names, which generally makes them sound a little silly... Deathwalker becomes Doedsgaengeren, which you can´t take seriously!!!

Alastair MacDirk - Chicken McDa**it
MacDirk Warriors - McDa**it Nuggets
Krav Maga Agents - M.I.B.
Syvarris - Legolas (it just fits too well, what can I say)
Demutef Guard - Fat Lump of .... (Backstory following)
Microcorp Agents - Microsoft Agents
James Murphy - Indiana Jones (Seriously, look at his choice of weapons)
Retiarius - Retardus (Sounds about the same and the fact that he's dressed in a diaper and wields a hairnet and a fish-fork for weapons.)
Sir Dendrick - Sir Dandruff
Brunak - Bruno (Just cause)
Tornak - Yoshi Rider (Think Super Mario World)
Sgt. Drake Alexander and the Airborne Elite - Duke and the GI Joes
and finally
Ninjas of the Northern Wind - Ninjas of Broken Wind

And now for something completely different,
The reason I hate the Demutef Guard.
If one was to look at the stat card for this unit, he's not too bad. For some reason though, everytime he's seen play at my house (by anyone) he has completely sucked. He got punked out when a samurai glyph summoned him, fell over when Deathwalker 9000 glared at him, and he broke something jumping down a hill. In three games he has been killed in three attacks and has himself killed only one squad member (after 3 tries). He..is..useless.

Maybe that's why he only costs 25 points -- perfect cannon fodder to finish "fleshing-out" a large army.

Also, after a friend commented that the splash of blood with the Life number written in it was slightly disturbing to him, we told him it was Kool-aid. Now all the figures have Kool-aid for blood and jello for guts.

Fear Brunak's Kool-aid Hungry special attack!!!

Got to add my two cents along with images where they have been touched up:

Dund - Rover
Izumi Samurai with outstretched katana - Tommy Tukamota - After the great Japanese car thief
Marcus Decimus Gallus - Maximus Phallus
Syvarris - Syph
Venoc Warlord - Slimey
Krav Magna Agents - Sean (Connery), Morgan (Freeman) and Diana (Rigg)


Dzu-Teh - Snowflake, Frostie, Chalkie, Whitewash, Snowballs and Michael Jackson (They are all white and made of plastic)


Raelin - Twinkletits
Tarn Warriors - The Great Unwashed
Su-Bak-Na - Bones
Marro Warriors - Grubs
All Orcs - Crunchies - from the sound they make when trampled underfoot
Taelord - Arnie
Dumutef Guard - Dummytit Guard

I shall no doubt add to this as I acquire more expansions.

Regards,

Jim O'Neill
Est. 1949

Krav Maga = "Mully and Sculder" (yes, I know!) once the first guy dies.

TRex Grut = "Chompy"

Nakita Agents = Charlie's Angels

Tor-Kul-Na (from new Master Set) = Ann Coulter

Savaris = Legolas

Aubrien Archers = "Lucky Jack" Aubrey's Archers

Warriors of Ashra = Xena and the Warrior Princesses
