With a Little Help from Your Friends.

Just the briefest of posts today to publicly thank Curtis Campbell Esq. for this rather splendid Witchfinder that has travelled all the way from the snowy wastes of Canada.  Curt has a long held tradition of thanking those foolish, brave enough to take on the role of Minion during the 'Analogue Hobbies Annual Painting Challenge', by presenting them with a miniature, painted by his good self.

Well it goes without saying that I was absolutely thrilled to receive such a little gem as this, made all the more special by the lovely card that accompanied it - thank you Curt!
The spectre that is the start of the new academic year has loomed into view and with the release of the public examination results, real life is demanding a fair bit of my time of late, that said, I am hopeful to catch up again with all things hobby related before too long.

  4. Very cool figure - and very kind of Curt. BTW, GW used to a similar figure in resin https://wabcorner.blogspot.com/2013/06/whfb-empire-witch-hunter.html Not sure if they still carry him though.

  5. That is a very generous gift from Curt and a fantastic figure as well as being well painted, I can see why you are chuffed with it.
    Do you know who the manufacturer is?

  6. Lovely gift to receive Michael, I've always looked at that figure, which I believe is a GW 40K one, to use in my own Witch Hunter Mordheim band. I see Curt has done a fine job of modding it to fit in your more black powder era setting!
