As we are playing more and more Mordheim I decided to remake my witch hunters. When looking at the fluff for zealots it just says that they are religious nuts, so I saw in my mind old soldiers saved by the gods to scourge the world for the evils of it in what ever shape it would take (the evil not the world).
The first guy:
Blinded, but still zealous enough to not care. He is the herald.






Then comes his brothers in arms:
As witch hunter zealots aren't allowed much else in weaponry but spears and bows, I choose to arm them with all kinds of pointy weapons (in this case a scythe, a lucern hammer and a halberd) and then count them as spears. All will eventually carry shields.




Please post your constructive critique and comments below.

Regards
/Kalle

It is a cool idea; in the 18th Century there were Regiments of Gentlemen Pensioners...old, retired soldiers still capable of taking to the field. Judging from the fine looking Green Stuff work, you can have a real blast with this idea. Have FUN! thumbsup

That is truly an amazing sculpting and converting work! The attention to intricate detail is stunning.

Do you make your own models too?

Damn great kitbashing and greenstuffing! Smile
I have never hired zealots myself, though I always thought their story is cool, there just isn't room for them :/ I might rethink that now Wink

You're off to a great start! The GS-ing is very good, and you've found good poses as well. The fluff is also neat, and surely a good inspiration for modelling and painting. Perhaps I will get a chance to see them irl, and smudge them with my greasy fingers.
