Well, there are already the five Halfling zombies too. I will do more, but they may be different races.

I had a small lot of these from WK, but couldn't resist getting some more (plus the extra bonus). Such nice models!  :-)

HURRAH. Other race Zombie's yes please from me. Already in for landsknecht and to be able to mix other races in would be great freshly raised from the battlefield. What more could a Vampire Count ask for.

These aren't mine unfortunately, but I couldn't resist showing off this painted set of the witchhunters, by German hobbyist Jan Niehues. They really look splendid in colour!



Shameless plug: there are a few copies left in the "getting some" section on the blog.  :engel:

They are one-piece models aren't they - not separate weapon hands?

I've emailed you - I want some, and I think I am missing a few knights.

Yes, they are. Sometimes it's best, especially with characters.

A few characters are to be added to the range. While these were sculpted some years ago, they have only been available in limited quantities for a very short time (2 month period).

While you've been introduced before to the Graf's lovely daughters, we were yet to encounter their stepmother, the Graf's new wife. Noone really knows where she came from, though she herself says she descends from a royal lineage and claims the title of "Queen of Hearts". Tensions have been running high between the Graf's daughters and their stepmother... Model sculpted by Shane Hoyle.



Another mysterious character has been roaming the land off late. This ageing knight is clad in shiny white armour, with a helmet shaped after a horse's head and carries some frankly odd equipment. Upon mention of his presence in the Empire, it is said the Graf's new wife reacted with visible shock, suggesting perhaps that this White Knight may have traveled from the same place whence she came. If that is the case, it does not appear as if that news was a welcome one...

Mick Darpa has delivered another set of (in my opinon) characerful sculpts with an oldschool bent. This is another set of knights templar (on foot). These belong to the order of the Great Bear. They are wearing heavy fur cloaks, made from the skins of bears they killed themselves and wield impressive great hammers that strike fear in the hearts of their enemies just by looking at them.

The champion of the unit looks unimpressed by the enemy. He'll lift his hammer when they get close enough to smell their breaths... The bearhead adorning his helmet could also be painted differently to represent a particularly ugly direwolf if you prefer.



The musician goes into battle armed with a "small" warhammer, to keep his other hand free in case his needs to blow his horn.



The proud standard of the unit. No frills, just a carved bear's head to show what they are about.



The first 5 rank and file Great Bear templar. I will post more pictures from different angles when I get them. A second set of rank and file figures, with bare heads, will be converted from these after moulding.

Hmmm, now of course I couldn't possibly comment on that. :closed-eyes:

Glad you like them though. I got some more pictures of them today:

Funnily enough I have been working on my Boar and Death Knights this evening - the hammer in the hand of the helmetless knight looks vaguely familiar .......................

It appears I have about 39 WK Knights about to join the ranks of my 67 GW Reiksguard - what do you think 2 units of 40 and one of 36?

As the WK versions come with a generous weapons sprue, - you get a choice of 4 hand weapons for every knight, - I am even tempted to convert the hand weapons on some of the Reiksgard to break up the lack of variety of the GW range

I might even paint them ........................

Are you going to do the same with the Bear Knight as the Zombies. If so count me in again, unit of 50 with full command. Can use Teutogen Guard rules for them, white wolf hammer and full plate armour, as the model shows. Want, want, want. Will come up with reason they are in my Altdorf army later.
