assorted Vile Abominations

Here are four evil spellcasters for Witchfinder General. I haven't gotten around to buying actual witch miniatures yet, so these are all necromancers from my preexisting fantasy collection. Fortunately for my half-assed attempts at thematic consistency, witch trials in Eastern Europe tended to persecute men at a higher rate than women, unlike the stereotypical Western trials.

And here are two more ghouls, of a slightly different breed than the last batch.

The ghouls (originally grimlocks) and the scythe-bearing witch are from the Reaper miniatures line that accompanied 3rd edition, I think. The other witch guys are all GW.

"The night was black, was no use holding back
'Cos I just had to see was someone watching me
In the mist dark figures move and twist
Was this all for real or some kind of hell"

New Foes for the Commonwealth
