Cole Ballad. He was a play-test player character. He did some neat stuff and became an official, established NPC.
Note the use of the past tense.
And this means there's no reason why there can't be a mini of him? That's kind of like saying that West End Games shouldn't have put out a miniature of Boba Fett or Darth Vader, because of their respective movie fates. (Yes, yes, I know about the expanded universe continued adventures of Boba Fett.)
The various "named major NPC" miniatures in the Savage Worlds line (Raven, Hellstromme, Stone, Grimme, etc.) also work nicely as "archetypes" for their respective professions. If I thought I could only use them to represent the character with the name printed on the blister pack, I'd either have a long time before I could ever put them on the table, or I'd have to be planning a whirlwind tour of the big names of the Deadlands universe.
In any case, I always liked the design of that hoverbike, and think the look of the character makes for a cool Law Dog with just a touch
of the Wild West look. (Hat, vest, and badge, anyway.)
Failing that, I hope there will at least be some post-apoc "scavvie" weapons at some point. Shotguns and near-future pistols are all well and good, but some of the more interesting weapons in the HoE illustrations were those that looked like they've been scavenged from the scrapyard -- improvised or "junk" weapons, neo-primitive weapons, sharpened hubcabs, stop-sign axes, chains-and-hooks, jury-rigged chainsaws, etc.
Ah well. Another kitbash project, I suppose.
