Chaos in Carpathia - The Antagonists

We are planning to play Chaos in Carpathia at some point. Hopefully it will form part of a blackpowderpunk (aka lacepunk) game that Steve has planned. It looks like the game will be largely skirmish using Gloire and Chaos in Carpathia. With that in mind, I have painted up a Monster Hunter warband for Chaos in Carpathia that will also suit the blackpowderpunk setting.

The Monster Hunters
Rogue Ridinghood and her followers are ready to take on the minions of darkness. Ever since her grandmother was eaten by a werewolf she has harboured a deep hatred for all forms of inhuman beast.

Her group consists of (from left to right):
Simple Simon Piemacher, a slayer. He likes to keep things simple ("Kill them all. God will know his own.")
'Ash Lad', a scholar. They always said he would never make anything of himself. That may be true but he makes mincemeat of monsters.
Rogue Ridinghood herself, their intrepid leader.
Dr Foster, a holy man. He preaches the word of God and smites both hip and thigh.
Bo Peep, a slayer. Her search for lost sheep rarely brings them living back to the fold.

The Vampires
You can't have monster hunters without someone to hunt. Steve has painted a Werewolf warband, so I decided to put together a Vampire warband. I've not thought through their background in detail but I have managed to paint them.

From left to right we have: a blood servant, a lesser vampire, a Romanian vampire (the boss) and a lesser vampire.

I am not particularly happy with the final result of the paint job on the chap second from the left, but I have too little motivation to return and redo him yet. Perhaps if he does well in the campaign, then he can be reworked.


  1. How did I miss this post? Excellent. Love it. Can't wait to see some game reports.

  2. These are great. Where did you get those miniatures for the Monster Hunters?

  3. The monster hunters are all Iron Kingdoms figures. While some of their figures look too medieval, these ones look about right for the mid-18th century setting that we are putting together.

  4. Wow, these are really sweet. And yes, need game reports!
