And now a Hobgoblin and the first of the hunters.

The part of the Hobgoblin is played by West Wind's King Rat with just a bit of modification to the hat.

A British ship from Sumatra, bound for Malta, never made port.  It is presumed lost at sea with all hands.  Well, all except one perhaps.  They had sent dispatches regarding a giant creature they had caught and that the marines on board were training it to fight with them.  This hobgoblin wearing the clothes of a sergeant of the Royal Marines is suspected to have made it to safety from that ship.  Certain authorities would like it brought in for questioning.

With several hunting units in various stages of preparation, I opted to paint the simplest unit first: Die schwarzen Bajonette, 1809 Brunswickers.  Six of the figures are from Steve Barber, with just a little re-posing, plus a couple of weapon additions.

The two Sisters Grimm are female Hussars from Colonel Bill's Belt Fed Gaming figures with some weapons added.  Since Elite Miniatures, who make very nice female figures, are not responding to email orders, I went with these pin-up ones.  I had to add an undershirt to fix the stupid wardrobe malfunction.  And because they are 30mm figures with exaggerated legs, I cut the metal base off to bring the look of their height down.

I was originally planning on using one the Hussars to splice onto a mounted figure, but decided to go with two on foot.  Now I'll probably order 2 more to make the mounted options.

A dozen Albanian brigands from Brigade Games.
 
Once they desert from the Ottoman army, they might as well keep running!  Catching a ship if they can, this band is likely to appear anywhere in the war torn lands:

Fantastic choice for the Bandits. Also, impressive painting output. You must have a lot of time...

They look great - a splash of colour(s) in an already colourful period!

Mine too (at the moment), but I still barely have time for it because of work/family commitments. At the rate I'm currently painting, I think it would take me three months to produce that set of brigands! Again, well done.

I myself had been thinking of using Barbary Corsairs for the TSB Bandits, but I've had a new idea which I'm presently working on.

After meditating awhile on what to do for Pixies, decided on the Reaper Gremlins as the meanest looking option.  Took them to the green putty haberdashery, and made wings from the blister box plastic.  Drew the membranes on with a .005 Micron Art pen.
 
Black Dogs are basic Foundry Warhounds.

Steve Barber wee ratties for clue markers.
