When shall we three meet again?

In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

More supernatural shenanigans for the 'Witchfinder' project; once again, I seem to be taking things out of sequence, but these proved just too difficult to resist.  I believe that they are 'Wargames Foundry' sculpts from their Undead range, now available through 'Flyte of Fantasy' on eBay.


Fabulous fun to paint, these John Pickford sculpts are quite sizeable and will dwarf 'Warlord Games' miniatures, but should fit perfectly with the 'Redoubt Enterprises' ranges, I will eventually get around to posting a comparison shot at some time.


In other news, I'm struggling with Blogger again; having lost my blog roll, I am now reduced to only seeing one blog at a time in my reading list.  I have tried reloading the page and opening it it a different web browser, but to no avail.  This is most infuriating as I know I must be missing an awful lot of posts, in fact I am not sure that this will be seen by anyone!  

If anyone does know of a fix, do please let me know!

  3. Nicely weird sisters!

    The Blogger Dashboard problem is widespread. I've had it for a few days, but it seems to have cured itself in the last hour or so.

    1. Oh sorry Tamsin, I didn't want to copy your comment.
      I had the comment form open for a while and didn't recognize your post.

    Excellent work, Michael!
    The posture of the brown witch looks a bit strange to me but your paintjob is flawless as usual.

    Cheers

  6. Excellent work. Now what they need is a Sawney Bean and his cannibalistic Clan for them to work along side with. Not that I'm trying to create more work for you!! :-)

    Don't worry about the Blog roll, it will be resolved (by itself) in a couple of days.

  11. When the hurlyburly’s done, Michael, something wicked this way comes with these black and midnight hags! All hail to thee, Mr Awdry, Thane of the Witchfinder Project, that shall be king (of the wargames table) hereafter! (They’re wonderful, and that’s probably my favourite play, as you might be able to tell!)

  15. I see the British love of brewing tea extends to their witches as well. I do so love their tea kettle is so Disney gone wrong. They are truly weird and wonderful.

    1. Thank you so much Luca, that is very kind of you. It would appear that Blogger has sorted itself out again so I can now see what everyone is up to.

    1. A thing for red heads eh? I understand they have fiery tempers if scorned!

  19. Me thinks that the red head is out of step with the other two wenches. Let me guess, the other two were previously better looking than red and she bewitched them into two horrid creatures. Not a bad guess, ah? You know how woman can be. Nice work Michael.
