D&D Classes: Sorcerer

This is Reaper No. 3258, Taladar Gomaris, Grand Wizard. Except, I'm using him as a sorcerer. While looking for the right figure to represent a sorcerer, I was trying to figure out what was the difference between a sorcerer and a wizard (or warlock etc.) As far as I could discern in D&D terms, a wizard requires spellbooks and readings of spells to perform his magic, whereas a sorcerer's magic comes as a natural talent requiring no books or wands etc. So I chose this mini because he is casting his magic without use of a spellbook or any other implements. I actually had this mini on my shelf for the past few months; I had intended to use him to play a wizard in a D&D game that never came to fruition.

I chose the storm blue (Foundry) to compliment the orange palette of my wizard, and I trimmed him with yellow to help him fit in with the other mages. Though, my warlock may have a palette entirely of his own. The warlock also will probably be the next figure I paint up for this project. And after the warlock, I have the druid to paint. Both are primed and ready to be painted; that, and the display base is finished! The display base is real simple, so I'll just show it along with all the figures when they're finished.
