I am starting a new empire army and have decided to go with an averland themed force. It has come to my attention that the mad elector count that has been ruling the region died in combat and now the elector count is disputed...

i have several questions?

1. who is currently disputing it and has the runefang been lost?

2. I have read that the count before mad Marius had a daughter who was his heir... is she still in contention for the position? because i think it would be cool to have a female character in an army for once.

3. if you think a female Averland countesse would work how do i convert the model? Do i give it a joan of arc feel or do i make her look noticably girly?

thx for any help suggestions, or other fluff dealing with averland anyone may have in advance.
