Just a quick question: Are the minatures of the characters prepainted? If not, do yo plan to have these as an expansion or maybe goodies with Essen pick-up? That would be great!
No, miniatures aren't prepainted (but each of them will be of the color of their board).
For Essen pick-up, there is a T-shirt (black, picturing D'Artagnan) and promo miniature: Treville.
No plan for now (as far as I heard) about set of prepainted minis.
