And a reminder of what they look like with an oldchool Empire human riding them instead of the dwarfs:

Dwarf Knights on Landgriffons released
It's been a long time coming, but the Landgriffon mounts for the Dwarf Knights, that I have previewed as greens, have just been released by The Assault Group in their webshop.

You can read the full announcement below, with more pics on the TAG site: http://theassaultgroup.co.uk/12624-2 :

Added to our Dwarf Empire range of white metal miniatures today are the long awaited Land Griffon mounts for our dwarf Knightly Orders.

The original Dwarf knights we inherited from the White Knight’s Miniature Imperium are mounted on very small, sweet looking armoured ponies.

These Land Griffons are a much more serious mounts. Mixing fearsome bird beaks and claws, with the hind quarters of huge wild cats.

ABOUT THE LAND GRIFFONS
There are four variants of these fabulous beasts to mount our Dwarves on. We’ll add them randomly to the 13 codes of minis, making sure that no two similar mounts go together in the packs.

We’ve chosen to paint ours as Leib Knights, on Snowy Owls/Snow leopards, but there are also Imperial knight and Boar knight regalia for the models.

The possible combinations of birds (eagles, parrots, ravens) and big cats (lions, tigers, jaguars etc) leads to multiple mouthwatering painting possibilities.

ABOUT THE KNIGHTS

The Knights are taken from our existing Dwarf Empire range.

Thirteen different packs of miniatures with two 28mm sized rider models in each pack.

Once again there is a huge variety of modeling possibilities, with four basic body types;

The three Knightly Orders; Imperial, Leib and Boar Knights, have five different heads and shields each…

…and are armed with two variants of lances for each of the Orders, or scythes or morningstars for Leib and Boars respectively.

There are also three Command groups representing the various Orders.

THE PAYBACK
Thanks for reading this far down the scroll, here is the payback.

We’re quite glad that we don’t have to push all these tricky pack choices through the ‘somewhat clunky’ Kickstarter system as we have done for the last few releases.

This also saves us money… and we can pass that saving on to you… so for a 10% discount on these products, use the DISCOUNT CODE given below before the end of the month (31/03/2018)

I'm crazy about your witch hunters.

The most fierce and feared of all the witchhunters is their Lord Commander, sometimes referred to as the Witchhunter General. The model is a bit of a collaboration between two sculptors, as the basic horse blank and armoured body are the ones done by FP, that also serve as the basis for the mounted knights and the additional detail is sculpted over that by Mick Darpa who did the footknights and witchhunters.

And a closer look at the horse:

I initially wanted the horse to be a singlepiece casting, but when I checked with the mouldmaker, he was of the opinion that it would be too wide and wouldn't cast properly (which I guess is why these type of barded horses in metal are usually multipart). Not wanting to go the split in the middle route I tried to work out a way to keep the naked horse body one piece and the barding separate. As the thin barding pieces from the mounted knights presented their own challenges in moulding, I wanted more solid pieces, which meant reducing the bulk of the horse body. Fingers crossed that it will all work out as planned in moulding.

Re: WK's Renaissance fantasy: Update & some new greens (05/0

Post by White Knight » Fri Jan 05, 2018 7:52 pm

It's been a while since the last update, so first things first, the current state of affairs regarding the human bearknights on foot that were previewed some months ago. They have been mastermoulded and the mastercastings all came out perfect, so this weekend I will spend some time cleaning mouldlines off the masters to prepare them for production moulding. If all goes well, they may be available in greater quantities next month.

Meanwhile, I had Mick Darpa slaving away at the next set of figures which are three Witchhunter/Daemonhunters to complement the earlier Witchhunter/Vampirehunter set. I was so pleased with the first set, that I had to do a couple more and here they are.

The first character is a Daemonhunter holding up a freshly acquired trophy, the head of a large beastman champion that he has slain. The God of Death will look favourably on his servant.

Image

Image

The second is a female witchhunter in sensible armour (read: no breastshaped breastplates, fashionable thin waist or high heeled armoured boots). She's holding up a decree proclaiming the witchhunter's mission and powers, while casually resting a hand on a holstered pistol, implying "or else...". In my head, I call this one "We have a warrant!"

Image

The last one is a specialised daemonhunter, going after those who would spread plague and disease in the realm. He is wearing a mask filled with herbs to keep away disease and carries a torch to burn the afflicted.

Image

There you have it. I hope to be able to mould this soon, so you won't have to wait as long on the next update.
