Okay, I'm old and my eyes aren't what they were, even with glasses. I can pretty much tell the locusts apart on the gameboard... but I can't for the life of me figure out which COG figure is which. I can tell them apart, because of the different stances... but I don't know which figure goes with which name. Can anyone help?

Thanks!

To be fair, I'm not going to paint any of my figs, so I just tagged the bottoms of their bases with their initials.

I took a label maker and put the first letter of their last names on each COG's base. A bit neater than handwriting it and completely reversible.

It's not so bad once you figure out the differences. The minis are very well detailed, but it is hard to tell at a glance when they're on the board.
