Acolyte Librarians - completed

Aulus & Gellius - Acolyte Librarians - Robed and hooded Tchi'thams Library Assistants, carrying books.
(Flagellants with Grey Knight / Dark Angels books, hooded Skitarii Ranger heads)

A pair of "civilian" low-level Adeptus Mechanicus characters for the Library of Tchi'thams in Mancunius Dome, assistants to Hagel the Librarian.

There are many rumour about the mysterious and heavily fortified Tchi'thams Library. Some speculate that the tomes held within are dangerous heretical books of daemon summoning and binding, or a near-complete STC: printed on ancient yellowing paper and leather-bound. Others blithely state that they are merely ancient historical records dating from the dawn of the Imperium. Either way the local populace like to talk about it occasionally but rarely make any effort to find the truth.

With their master, Hagel the Librarian:

Hallow'd Ground, part 5, Game 4: The Haunted Mansion

The necromancer’s hideout lay between the warbands. Who would claim the right to be the saviour of the day?

~ ~ ~

Angry black clouds roiled overhead. A gusty wind picked up and spiralled dead leaves through the village. Squalls of sudden and violent wind and rain hammered the roofs and walls. The Nachtjägers took what shelter they could find beneath the leafless trees of the Forest of Tears and looked out across the open ground between the forest and the rotting inn that stood before them: The Rose & Scythe.

Grimmig climbed the ancient stone stair to a dais with a heavy aura of death hanging over it. Many of the village’s farm animals had come there to just lie down and die when the dark magic corruption first overtook the region. Pult, his Grot lectern, followed him reluctantly.

The Church of Sigmar's Retribution emerged from the Spiritgate with weapons ready. They seemed upset that the orruk Witch Hunters had beat them to the inn.

The Nachtjägers closed in on the Rose & Scythe and took possession of the rotten buildings.

Avram the Unforged made another trip through the Spiritgate...

... to out-flank Grimmig on the Dreadfire Portal.

Professor Fängmorder led the biggest Orruks into the courtyard.

As a pair of Deadwalkers emerged from the inn.

The Churchmen approached cautiously.

While Endewald the Juggler dealt with the Deadwalkers.

More Deadwalkers started to gather - drawn by the noise the two warbands were making.

The Black Orruks swiftly dispatched the Griffhound

As the rest of the Church Militia closed in.

Heftig's Boyz fired their crossbows at the approaching rival Witch Hunter.

And more Deadwalkers burst out of the tavern.

The fight started in earnest at the rear of the Rose & Scythe.

The lone Witch Hunter was surrounded.

Another herd of Deadwalkers gathered.

Avram felled Grimmig and turned on the frightened Pult.

Professor Fängmorder and the Black Orruks slaughtered droves of Militia while the Necromancer looked on, furious that his plans were being interrupted by two belligerent bands of rival Witch Hunters!

 ~ ~ ~

The battle ended as a victory for the Orruks, as they were in control of the Rose & Scythe.

Mancunius Dome Scenery - new additions, part 1 (WIP)

I have finally got round to starting work on some more Underhive scenery for Mancunius Dome!

(I keep starting new things, when I should be making underhive scenery.... "I'll just finish *this* batch of models, *then* I'll get started on the scenery.." he said, every day for 6 weeks.)

I've been staring at the photos of the Curse of the Alabaster game for inspiration....
