I have finished another four of the medieval demons produced by Antediluvian Miniatures. This lot is carrying handgonnes, a sort of cannon on a stick that originated as early as the 13th century. In game terms, where appropriate blackpowder weapons might be missing, I’ll use the crossbow rules to represent them.
I pledged for the Medieval Demons by Antediluvian Miniatures in 2017 and just made a start by painting up the first group. The sculpts are crisp and the white metal castings are very clean so I highly recommend this range.
Based on drawings of demons in medieval manuscripts, I intend to field these as the retinue of a powerful Daemon Prince of Tzeentch using Saga 2 rules or against actual historical fighters of the era.
With their faces leering from various body parts, colourful skin tons and bird like features, such medieval depictions of the forces of hell must have had a big influence on the Changer of the Ways in Warhammer lore.
Driven by searing rage, a pack of Bloodletters hacked their way through the barriers of reality at an unguarded summoning circle.
I’ve only got a small contingent of Khorne Demons for Oldhammer – four Bloodletters and four Flesh Hounds, making eight in total, so I hope the Blood God will nevertheless be pleased. Enough in any case for a skirmish scenario or to be used in the hands of a diabolical Games Master!
Back in Warhammer’s Realm of Chaos days the Lesser Daemons designed by Kev Adams were individually named, as befitting their unique personas. The Plaguebearers were always my favourites and I have the full set. Unfortunately there are only 11 different ones, so they don’t make a multiple of Nurgle’s unholy number 7.
