Hi there
Here is an image of the population counters used in Material world:

While I know that I have seen all of those people on the counters somewhere (e.g. in Monty Python sketches), I can’t remember who they are - some may only be on paintings and may not be real persons - I'm looking for the artist then. Would you help out?
Below is a list of the people of who I am quite sure - though not 100% with each one.

I offer 0,25 bag for every counter named - or corrected. Just copy the list in your post and fill the gaps.

Have fun:

France 1: Voltaire, author, 1694-1778
France 2:
France 3: Leonardo da Vinci, painter/sculptor/engineer/universal genius, 1452-1519 (in France only near the end of his life)
France 4:
France 5:

Russia 1:
Russia 2: Peter the Great, Tsar, 1672-1725
Russia 3: Ivan the Terrible, Tsar, 1530-1584
Russia 4:
Russia 5: Margaret Theresa of Spain, empress, 1651-1673 (why used for Russia?)

Ottoman 1: "portrait of a man with a turban", probably a self portrait of Jan van Eyck, painter, 1395-1441 (used for Ottomans because of the turban?)
Ottoman 2: Suleiman the Magnificent, sultan, 1494-1566
Ottoman 3: Osman I, sultan, 1258-1326
Ottoman 4:
Ottoman 5:

England 1: Virginia Woolf, author, 1882-1941
England 2:
England 3:
England 4:
England 5:

Germany 1: Albert Einstein, physicist, 1879-1955
Germany 2: Anne Louise Germaine de Staël-Holstein, author, 1766-1817 (why used for Germany?)
Germany 3: Martin Luther, theologist, 1483-1546
Germany 4: Albrecht Dürer, painter, 1471-1528

(yes, there are only 4 German counters)

I've contacted Strange Magic Games as they have a new game coming out this year after a looong hiatus! Kent from SMG told me he would send the jpeg along to Alexis and make an attempt to recall where they were from. I sent along the link to this discussion as well.
