The mob of flagellants is ready to preach fire and brimstone at the end of an iron flail across the Empire. While Warhammer 8th Edition rewards massive armies with hordes of 30+ models, I am more interested in painting moderately sized forces with a variety of archetypal troop types. It’s always possible to double up later.
Throwing together three generations of sculpts made this an enjoyable painting project. The models from the Mordheim range sport the most additional detail, which is very characterful. Admittedly I could have added extra bits and pieces to the newer figures from the plastic kit, but for an entire regiment I am quite happy keeping it simple. The Marauder Miniatures versions are the most plain, but do have individual character with distinct faces and poses.
Leading the charge for my Witch Hunter contingent and the wider Empire forces I am building, these guys are some of the few humans I have painted for Warhammer Fantasy Battle. While not going to reach my Imperial Guard numbers anytime soon, I do hope to rectify this somewhat over the next months.
