I wanted a slightly grim feeling to my warband, with great contrast between my Witch Hunter heroes and my fanatical henchmen followers, so the Cawdor kit was perfect for this project.
I went for pretty much classic Witch Hunter looks, coats and hats, but I was also inspired by some art pieces from the Mordheim rulebook, which helped me build my dog handler Witch Hunter and my Warrior Priest.
The warband will mainly be part of a Mordheim campaign I’m currently writing, “The dance of Geheimnisnacht”, where they will act as an NPC warband for the faction of the church (stay tuned for the Cult NPC warband!).
I have been playing a lot of the Mordheim PC Game too, which inspired me to build an Executioner, probably one of the most fun pieces I built for the warband, he will use the rules of a Flagellant for gaming purposes.
The Executioner was also the first model I painted, so I went for a pretty limited palette and went for saturated colours for a grimdark feeling.
I will also share the rest of the warband, in the usual black and white.
