Lord of the Dish Pit

Mordheim Witch Hunter Captain

Recommended Posts

I think this was my longest uncompleted figure, having started him 14 years ago. Having most of him finished to the best of my ability at that time he didn't take too long to complete, and on the advise of Malefactus I plopped him on a larger base, which I painted in the style of the examples found in the Mordheim rulebook. (I also discovered that younger me had closely followed the paint scheme for this figure, changing only the hat, ribbon and sword colors)

I redid the original freehand on his sword, as younger me had a bit of trouble getting all the letters on. I was also able to stylize them somewhat.

The light dusting on his coat wasn't intentional but a happy accident.

And here he is with some friends, a Ral Partha Witch Hunter who has recently had a Mordheim sword arm attached and a Bones Village Rioter.

      As every year I make at least one Pit Fighter as a sacrifice to a Mordheim revival, I started out early this year.

      For the holidays, a friend got me the Greenfield Grasshuggers Blood Bowl team, despite me not playing, he said it felt weird to have a team named in my honor but I didn't own it.  So instead, he enabled this horror:

      Out of the cruel depths of Mordheim's cheapest fighting pits comes the never-victor, the eternally battered Halfling Gladiator only known as Bloodytoes!



      The other is an as-is Ogre Gladiator from Knightmare Models.  Delightfully retro.

      These were part of Warlord's Pike & Shotte starter box, which I picked up for the purpose of getting some rank and file reinforcements for my witch hunter army.

      I kept with the basic pilgrim color scheme, and it worked very nicely once I'd added some of Warlord's broadbrim hats pack to them.

      They came with two sets of arms, providing a little variation depending on what angle I glued them, and with the variety of hats in the broadbrimed sprues, I was able to get a nice amount of individuality to them, while keeping them uniform.

      Here we see them hard at work, preventing a foul necromancer from enslaving the local cemetery's dead....

      They are not amused by such blasphemous tomfoolery.

      She was the first Bones Black mini I've painted, and I'm digging the new material even if it does feel a bit weird to not douse it in sepia wash first. 

      While the addition of a nifty Inquisiting Hat lessens the otherwise piratical vibe she would otherwise have, it does make her face hard to reach. I also noticed that for some reason her braid was completely seperate from her head.

      She also had several almost impossible to reach mold lines, but light nitpicking aside, I really like the character of this sculpt.


      And with Oswald...

      A long term resident of the Shelf of Incompletion. A year or so back I got the idea of swaping out his shovel for the ax from one of Reaper's weapon packs, but until recently didn't have much luck in getting it to stay glued. He's a rather interesting sculpt, his hat and coat are rather witch hunterlike, also I'm not able to determine a reason why the local grave digger needs armored shoulders, but his face and robe also make one wonder if perhaps he dabbles in necromancy on the weekends. Eventually I'll have to pick up another one of him, see what a necromancer conversion might turn out like...

      It could be argued that an ax is a vital tool for undertakers, considering the likelihood of the local crypt containing a ghoul warren...
