Here's a great role-playing game I play, called Mechanical Dream (http://www.steamlogic.com/version_a/index.htm). They've made some changes about how their going to be releasing their updated rules, and I think it's a great time to get into the game! Check them out! (^_ ^)
As a side note, they released some minis too for a chess-like game, which are great sculpts in their own right!

I remember being somewhat intrigued by Patin Nocturne when it first came out ( the fact that it is one of the few Canadian produced games and I wouldn't get savaged by shipping was a plus too). Have you tried it?
Also, couldn't find any good mini pics from the link you provided.

I have played it :) I own all the figs and had them go head-to-head with friends that (as I once was) were unconvinced about minis games. It really does play like chess, or a clean version of Navia Drapt, with it's own flavor. I had hoped that the game would take off because I wanted more figs! MD are really are talented folks!
As I played the RPG first, I just wanted the figs because they were cool! I'd already gotten into DA, so I'd been won over to the concept of having figs. (Now DA just needs that RPG! *argh* I'm typing as fast as I can!)
You can find pics at the Pantin Nocturne (http://www.steamlogic.com/version_a/index.htm) section at the website. It's tricky though because you must select "Pantin Nocturne" from the buttons at the top of the page, right next to "Forum". There is no direct link to the pics. Select the "Concept" link when the new menu appears, and there you are! (^_ ^)
One interesting feature about the bases were that they were wood! Actually, I think putting the minis on extra DA bases would be a bit better, as the minis were prone to fall over (the wood bases are not large). The minis have flat bottoms, so it was easy enough to glue them to surfaces.
