Einar's theme is of disciplined warrior cultures, not specifically of "Greeks", "Romans" or "Samurai."

My personal expectation is that Einar's two-space figures will be of cavalry of some kind, most probably mounted samurai.

It is interesting to speculate that they might be other cavalry units noted for their discipline and camaraderie. Some have suggested Sioux or Cheyenne warbands, or Napoleonic hussars in this context, but I think not: while these are all capable warrior cultures, they all have a tendency to individual action and battle frenzy more in keeping with Ullar's visions than with Einar's.

On that note, recall that the Valkyries do not choose the units they will summon to Valhalla: the visions they receive from the wellsprings show what they will, and modern Kyries do not comprehend the motives of the Wellspring Builder culture.

Ultimately, of course, the decision lies in the hands of Hasbro's HeroScape team. It is possible—likely, on second thought—that the Knights Templar of Fields of Valor (Wave 7) will include two-space Einar-allied units.

I don't know, I haven't seen TMNT. After thinking some more on it, maybe something like the Terracotta warriors perhaps? Only larger than life-sized. Living guardian statues maybe?

C is for Cookie. That's good enough for me.

That might be okay, but the first thing you know, after guardian statues, is that someone will want a horde of garden gnomes.

if vydar gets stormtroopers then give jandar han solo and the jedi order to einar <stormies han>

dude, if the generals were summoned by einar, that would explain the portal at the end of the movie. (sorry for those who havent seen it)

What about a Minuteman riding a horse for Jandar. That would be a good idea. Kind of like George Washington

I think your suggestion of a Chinese Dragon won't and shouldn't come into play for Einar. He has never summoned ANY Chinese characters, the only Chinese ones so far are the Shaolin Monks who were summoned by Ullar. Now Ullar might get more Chinese characters to go with the monks, but Einer would have to get something else instead.

So by that logic, no one will ever get any dwarves, Einar will never have a dragon, Vydar will never have any Kyire, etc, etc, just because they haven't gotten any yet?
