Her Brutish Bodyguard, Hurtz - He used to be the family goat but Giselle's powers have transformed him into her loyal protector.
Her right hand man - The Mad monk, another practictioner of the dark arts he is loyal to his mistress and is learning all he can from her.
Hurtz was inspired by one of a series of dutch comics, entitled 'de Geuzen' (the name that the dutch rebels originally called themselves, it means 'beggars'), that are set during the dutch rebellion and feature supernatural goings on.
In addition to the stars, co-stars and zombies I'll take 5 mercenaries and upgrade one to leader. These will be Spanish soldiers sent to guard Giselle and her town from some English troublemakers who have been in the area (although in future I might use some lansknechts as they are proper mercenaries!)
|Still a bit of work to do on these guys but they're only a decent evenings work away from being finished|
This is where our heroes come in! I've only called them English cos the lead character looks like some swashbuckling english rogue but I might just decide that they are in fact a fool hardy bunch of Sea beggars intent on causing the spanish as much grief as possible.
The Heroes will consist of Sir Thomas Cocksure - A Dashing Rogue leading his band of freedom fighters in daring raids across the low countries.
A couple of as yet unamned co-stars who will be Brothers in arms (although I'm quite tempted to have an enchanting beauty instead, the foundry pack I got does have a female model with an arquebus).
|Some bits and bobs to do on some of these, mostly beards and hair!|
The extras will take the form of three veterans (halberd armed) with one upgraded to a leader and five warriors armed with arquebuses (with one again upgraded to a leader).
Also in the post this morning was a load of the new Fantasy buildings form 4ground. I reckon they are perfect for the setting so expect to see them getting built up in the next couple of weeks.
