New Poll: Sexiest [Female] Warcaster

For this month we're going to try something a little different and light-hearted for a poll.  One of the things I love about Warmachine/Hordes is that women are well-represented in the game, despite it being a wargame.  I think that's totally fair and great that if a girl or woman wants to play the game, she might be able to find a character with whom she can connect.  I also like how most of the females in the game are reasonably dressed/armored... for the most part.  So for the next month we're going to have a little pageant of sorts and ask:
Who do you think is the sexiest [female] warcaster?

There are also some unsurprising results after the last poll, it seems like everyone likes playing at 35 points the most.  I was a little surprised to see so many people playing in the 35-50 point range, although that might be my fault.  I meant to include that entry for people who play 36 or 42 point games (I've heard it's more popular abroad), but I think a lot of people voted for that option because they regularly played 35 or 50 point games.  Oh well.  Here are the actual numbers:

10-15 points - 2%
25 points - 12%
35 points - 46%
35-50 points - 29%
50 points - 10%
75+ points - 1%

I will be interested to see if these numbers change within the next year or so, especially with the addition of Colossals/Gargantuans, which will allow players to enjoy larger games without losing the functionality of the smaller games.  Even still, it's curious to see a smaller number of 50 point games when many major conventions seem to be going towards the 50-75 point sizes, while the population seems to play 35 points more often.  Perhaps conventions need more 35 point events to better match the player's preferences?  I know that the NETT was 35 points this year and it definitely felt very different than the previous year.  It will be curious to see how events unfold in the future.
