Great to have you on board Andreas.
Added image for first throwaway mock-up of the game board & interface. Just figuring out style and where I will place buttons. Thought people might like to see how it progresses (There will be many photoshop versions :) ).
The image is the size it would appear on iphone so you can see just how clear the characters need to be to discern the basic details.
If people would prefer to model all 4 characters (other images coming soon) and not do animations I think that could work too. And then could run second comp to animate them.
