Oldschool Witchhunter greens (update 09/01)

While the knights are getting ready to ride out, another longtime project is coming to fruition.

I've long wanted to get some Renaissance Witchhunters figures done, clad in heavy armour and with the iconic hats. The idea probably goes back to some conversions I saw several decades ago that left a general impression with me. The armoured dollies made for the footknight figures offered a good base to jump off from. All three models sculpted by Mick Darpa.

Witchhunter Captain With No Name. Very loosely based on the Man With No Name and a certain H.S., he loves his cigars almost as much as he loves the way a plan comes together. His heavy broadsword is the perfect tool for chopping up all manner of undead and witchbreed.

Witchhunter Pistolier. Because sometimes it's just nice to put some distance between you and the enemy.

Image

Witchhunter specialising in vampire control. Armed with a warhammer and a set of wooden stakes. You don't want to run into him if you're a child of the night, especially with that neckguard protecting him from your bite.

Re: Oldschool Witchhunters

They look great! A bit unusual to find witchhunters in heavy armor, but it's not a bad look at all. My only comment would be that the cape on the first model ties the hat together with the rest of the miniature so that he looks (perhaps) more witchhuntery than the rest?

Capes or no, I'll probably buy the whole set anyway. :)
Let me know if you're in Southeast or South-central Virginia and want to get together for a scrap!

Re: Oldschool Witchhunter greens (update 08/06)

The (for now) final installment of the Witchhunter set, all sculpted by Mick Darpa in a deliberate 90's style.

This band of witchhunters travel with a cleric for some moral and divine support. Of course, given the nature of their calling, it's a cleric of the God of Death, so the grim appearance and the skullfaced mask might not lift the group's morale much, but you can't have everything.

A minor update to the witchhunter with pistols from last time, in the form of the addition of a small dagger to the backside:
