I can absolutely relate to that. Have an artist in your closet? ;-)

What happened is that we got 2 or 3 unit portraits made by someone and
put them into the game. Then someone vanished. A little later someone else
contributed a few other portraits (4, the ones we use now), in a completely
different style. I liked that style better, and it looked like there was a
possibility of getting more of those images, so they replaced the old ones.
Then someone else vanished as well...
