I also wanted a mage like figure, and this plague monk Lord Skrolk fits the bill well without being too OTT. In a box somewhere there are also sitting a few old giant rats (Citadel perhaps), so a Skaven Beastmaster with his Rat Pack (or perhaps controled swarm?) will give something different within theme. I'm sure there will be a conversion friendly figure in the group that I bought to keep costs down.
