About Anne Foerster, member of the Paint Crew:
Anne Foerster has been painting since she was nine years old, when she happily dipped some plastic snakes into Testor's red and black enamels. The rest is history! Anne worked for several companies and privately as a freelance miniatures painter before landing at her current happy home at Reaper Miniatures in 2003. She has won a few painting awards, at the national and regional levels, at Gen Con and other venues, both in-person and online. Anne is Reaper's on-site Staff Painter and the designer of the Reaper Master Series paint line. Her teaching credits include classes at Genghis Con in Denver, Origins in Columbus, Gen Con in Indianapolis, and at home down here in Denton, Texas. read more
About Werner Klocke, sculptor on the Green Team:
International fan-favorite Werner Klocke first began sculpting figures for Reaper in the late 90's. Since that time, Werner has sculpted scores of incredible figures, and his female figures have become the standard for the fantasy miniatures industry. Werner also has his own line of miniatures called Freebooter Miniatures. read more

Valandil's first passion is the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake. He spends long days in his study, pouring over the scrolls and books that the Chroniclers of Denelspire bring to him in an endless stream. Though at times he might seem lazy or callous for his immersion in words over people, in reality Valandil does not mind exerting himself; it's more that battlefields are messy places where one invariably has a hard time laying hands on a good cup of tea, and really, the efforts of the opposing mages to call down fire upon a unit under his protection are so very tiresome.
The Arch-Mage is certainly a reluctant warrior, and slow to anger, but when something truly offends him the aftermath is inevitably spectacular; the last enemy mage who managed to get a spell past Valandil's defenses found himself a smoking pile of cinders soon afterward, along with most of the unit he sheltered in.
