EotD - Wulfen Jaegers

One of my favorite factions in Empire of the Dead is the Wulfen Jaegers. Originally I got the old Westwind Gothic Horror Vampire Wars set of 4 and then later on purchased the Wulfen Jaegers Houndmasters pack. They have been painted and based for over a year now, but I have not used them since the rules don't support the Houndmaster and the Wolfhound being on the same base. I toyed with creating my own rules, but they didn't feel right, so I was not sure what I wanted to do with them.

A year later I got thinking about them again. I wanted to use them in our games, but even if I put the models on separate bases I thought the Houndmasters would look stupid as they were only holding chains. Then I posted on the Darkfire Club Facebook page and Brummie (Simon Quinton) suggested that I try to convert them.

For the conversions I found a Napoleonic musket that I thought I could use. I also had huge pistol from a Malifaux figure that I could use. So in the end I am very pleased with the results and the minis will definately see action on the gaming table.

So here are some pictures of the Houndmasters and the Wolfhounds. I took some images of the other 4 Wulfen Jaegers as well. The last picture is a group shot of the Wulfen Jaegers.


  1. Nicely done and suitably match the rest of them!

  2. Thanks Simon, and thanks for suggesting the conversions.

  3. Very well done Kaspar they fit in well with the others and I have to admit those Gothic hounds are some of the best sculpts I've seen.

  4. Thanks Robert, they are very characterful indeed
