Monks element changed in Risen Sun

Hi.

I'm, still waiting for my replacement deck while I noticed something clicking trough the new Temple Starter: Kira switched her stone stance to dash, therefore changing from Earth to Air.

Since I colorcoded all my monks.. well... thanks for a wasted paintjob. frown (I gave her a brown robe which I use for earth... yes, thats at least 1/3 of the miniature painted "wrong")

So, can anyone tell me please who else changed their element? Don't want to waste even more hours in paintjobs I have to strip once my replacement deck arrives.

You know what?  I never thought someone would paint them based on Element so sorry about that!  Kira was changed for 2 reasons.

1:  Nobody was using her.  She didn't really do anything as her feat was a corner case defensive ability and she was mediocre otherwise.  I had wanted to change her for a while and the new edition gave an opportunity to fix something else I really wanted cementing...

2:  She's in an air stance.  One leg is a classic Air monk stance, Earth monks are steady on two feet flat on the floor.  Even Hauru has both feet in contact with the earth while doing an axe kick.  She also has open hands which isn't a necessity but most earth and metal monks have at least one fist.

I don't think anyone else changed element so much though we did clarify a few like Tsutsumi who is now identified as Air and Void.

I always thought of the studio paint job of being color coded and I liked the idea. So I used that for my minis.
So you say she is the only one? Maybe I can change the briwn robes with the air colours.
I can't attach pictures here bt once I uploaded them I will post a link.

Seems like I can't edit my post, so new post...

Sorry for being that grumpy in my original post. It's just that she turned out so well and I don't know if I can achive that a second time. As many painters I'm very picky about my own work basically always complaining about mistakes I did, calling a miniature done just because I reached a point where I think I can only do more harm then good.
