Medieval Assassins!

12 dark shadows whose purpose is to "remove" people and carry out other small "tasks"  for money.
You have heard that they exist, you may have heard of thier deeds or even met someone who claims to know one but the only time you will ever really know wether they are real or not will be the last thing you know.
This set is by Alex for Valdemar and soon will be  available from Fredericus Rex
The Brotherhood together. The bods come unbased so I´ve used some spare bases from the Emhar Saxon wariors set as temporary ones 
Signalling that he´s suceeded in opening the castle gate
Of course I had to paint one up   "Assassins Creed" style

As ever, it´s not only the poses that make these bods really excellent..it´s Alex´s creation of such expressionate faces!!

And now a rare opportunity to see  some of the members of the Brotherhood in action!
In medieval Khandibah,  someone who prefers to work alone is about to leap into the pages of history.
Meanwhile in Styrow on the Foam, the king  is passing through...but.......
...from the right...
 
...from the left...
...and from the front, an ambush is about to spring into action!

  1. Great work Paul and you're right to me it's the face that makes a figure good or bad!

  6. Would make great 18th C. cultists if something similar to the Priory of Sion crawls in the Bodstonian underground.

  10. This is most excellent Paul. They look great painted up and even better as they go about their work.

    I really want some Valdemar figures and this set in particular. The problem I've got is the bank I use is locally owned and very small and aren't set up to make overseas purchases. Very frustrating that as they make some terrific sculpts.

  12. Great work on the clandestine brotherhoods silent work to assist others into the deep darkness of the nether world. And Valdemar figures are very expressive.

  15. Thanks all :-D
    It´s difficult to show ...but they all have different tones of brown, grey, black etc. The black for example is done with adding either pink, or green or blue..but it don´t bloody show on the pics!!!!
    Cheers
