Wow!  Love seeing what you have done with this since your return to the subject - the churchyard is a wonderful playspace .  Hope those musketeers and dismounted cavalry have a few silver balls to use on the Lycans (maybe some confiscated silver spoons, melted down).  Another interesting idea to add to the Witches' side might be some animated skeletons from the graveyard.  Skull and Crown miniatures does some nice skeleton landsknechts, priests (even a bishop) etc., based on Holbein's Dance of Death (aka March of Death, Triumph of Death) woodcuts.  Could be good representation of individuals interred a century before (16th century) and now (17th century) animated and at the witch's call.

I’ve ordered a sprue of Pike and Shotte plastic ECW infantry.  I’m sure to have a few skellies about somewhere…….I will have a shot at a few conversions…..

Oh now those are nice! I have a vast surplus of Warlord ECW plastic infantry and some plastic skellies around here too... might need to borrow that idea!

Been a while….but I’m thinking of resurrecting so I can play on it with a few of my regimental chums.   

I still need to gather a few horror minis so will place an order soon as I can identify the best ones.  If anyone can recommend specifically 17th century looking vampires etc, please let me know.

In the meantime, I have received another few packs from Bloody Miniatures, including dragoons, Scot’s and women.   Should make for a couple of good looking alternate teams.

I also think at some point I need a more traditional English Church……but that’s a little way off yet.

So….a browse through Reapers store and I’ve ordered half a dozen wraiths / ghosts / vampires etc, enough to give me a kickstart.  I ordered  a third Westwind werewolf as I realise I need three lesser werewolves for my pack, so he will get a breeches conversion like the other two.  I also ordered a mausoleum from Tabletop World so I can do another tile for the graveyard….

Meanwhile, I’ve just painted a few Bicorne infantry.  Tried adding a little OSL to one of them but came out a tad heavy…oh well, he will do.



More importantly, I painted the skellies whilst I was at it.   Will sit nicely as a set of henchmen in one or other coven or group.
