Devilry Afoot - witch hunters (4)

The latest monster hunters completed for Devilry Afoot are these two 28mm moss troopers from Bloody Miniatures. They have been painted up to use as gentlemen, but could equally be soldiers.

In Devilry Afoot, a gentleman is man of quality, wealth and honour, whose family money has allowed for a life of leisure and the luxury to practice the more chivalrous arts of swordplay, poetry and courting. Given their standing in the community, a gentleman will start any game or campaign with additional resources and a member of his household to provide support during a hunt and other essential services during normal times.

This last shot, from one of our test games, shows a gentleman and soldier attempting to drive off a wendigo that was threatening a small frontier settlement. The gentleman's dog had already been eaten and shortly after this photo was taken, both the gentleman and soldier were also dined upon... suffice to say the scenario did not end well for the hunters!

    “Ha! Those “gents” in their fancy store-bought clothes. Come to the Colonies and try to show us how to beat a Wendigo. That’ll learn ‘em.”

    Although I must say a moose-head Wendigo would look great too. You should consider adding one. This fellow (the Indian warrior Wendigo) workday also be a great Outlaw leader.

    1. From what I can see, the stag/moose-head is a 20th century (Hollywood) addition to the lore. I am resisting going there at this point as I'm trying to keep 17th century where possible.
