Everyone else looks great but Hansi looks strange somehow, like he would have some stuff in his hair like this: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_k471mDNQiOc/S ... r-boys.JPG
He looked more normal in the Sacred Wheel 2 video

Hansi looks a bit strange indeed. But Marcus looks like you could put him on the throne of Gondor^^

I miss Fred's long beard.. Marcus looks fine with a beard, Hansi always looks good.. and I've only seen André with a beard once.. to cut it short: glad he doesn't have one in these pics :lol:

But who the hell cares about beard anyway? :mrgreen: they're the Bards!

Those pictures are HDR ones (three photos - normal , very bright and very dark - combined in one and processed with the proper graphic tool), also Heaven and Hell had those kid of pictures...

A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer
