I guess I forgot t post this here. 2 great figs to complement the WarGods line as Asar civilians (I'm really overflowing with various skirmish/not-quite RPG scenarios) from Dark Fable's line of Egyptian fantasy folks.
Blind Ankhlus and Big Bukka the Beloved of Bes once travelled and sang the greatest Nile Blues songs ever heard by mortals. But on a trip to Pharos at the Court of the Pleasure Seeker something neither bard will discuss happened that tore their lucrative partnership apart. Ever since that day they have taken to spitting harsh songs that are obvious jabs at the other as part of their new repertoires. Their legions of fans often clash in the streets if the two bards are in the same city...
Blind Ankhlus still claims to have written the famous "Salad Song"by himself giving no credit to Bukka.
Big Bukka, the Beloved of Bes, has become highly sought after because of the tales of his adventures off the stage that have inspired some of his best known songs ("Going Back to Heirakonpolis" "Her Arrows Were Poison" and "The Apis Stomp" being major crowd favorites).
I've always listened to a lot of olde blues and when I got to these two minis I realized they would be perfect blues personalities rather than just nameless musicians. Then I came up with some of their famous songs as a mix of Egyptian myth and classic blues because that seemed fitting...
