D&D feline characters - need input

So I'm working on a project I've recently put out there, and I have a few of the characters left to complete, so I wanted to get some input before I lock them in - I'm getting them done over the next 2-3 weeks.

Now despite the fact that these are cat based re-imaginings of the iconic D&D classes, I still want them to really feel like they fit in the world - I mean who knows it would be easy enough to tweak them all to be a party of Tabaxi's ;)

Anyway, the paladin is the farthest along in the gang, and clearly is lacking in armour detail, but are there any other elements that would make this one sing ... or maybe ... purrrr? Sorry, couldn't help it.

The other three (druid, barbarian, cleric,) have more room for re-working - so comment away, would be a big help!

Thanks Charlaquin! Yeah I'm currently adding the colour to the barbarian, but despite the first two being front runners, not sure which I prefer most, dual wield or the great sword.

You need a Persian cat. As something completely off the wall, what about a big chubby Persian whirling barbarian?

Or something that looks like a wildcat, like a cougar or bobcat. Close enough to domestic.

Your cleric looks like a sphinx breed?

Your sneaky cat can be a black panther with no capital letters. See how long it takes people to detect the pun.

Most clerics carry a mace; it is almost a trope. Look over some extensive list (like the D&D 3e weapon lists) to find a distinctive and flavorful alternative. A net might work because you still shed no blood and do not even harm your foe, you just tangle him up in place. Cats like to catch mice to play with them, not simply squish them flat.

They seem to have hooves, not clawed feet.
Totally get that - it's just because these are fairly quick rough sketches to get the ideas across - I pay more attention to that when I go to render with colours and lighting.

The barbarian should look like a cat that's got into a lot of fights (and won) - smug, scarred and ragged-eared.

(Edited to add: Also, this is lovely art :) Thanks for sharing it with us!)
Ho-ho that would be fund, persian breed! Oh and for the cleric, hadn't quite decided, though I was planning on using the sphynx for the warlock.

Point taken on the brawler look needed - thanks!

And thank you to all for the positive comments and feedback!

Definitely the great sword, I absolutely love the expression on the Barbarian Moggy and the Broad sword seems to enhance it

not too sure about the druid, maybe base it on an ocelot or jungle cat
