I've never played Fantasy (only 40k), but I've recently re-subscribed to Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning and I was wanting to paint up a Witch Hunter just to stick up by my monitor that somewhat resembles my in-game character.

I went to GW.com and started looking through the Empire stuff and didn't see any Witch Hunter type models. Is there something out there and I just didn't see it or am I going to convert a 40k Witch Hunter to look like my fantasy Witch Hunter?

From the Mordheim range, second one along is my favourite. However, if you really want the Van Helsing look, you'd have to convert to 40k one. The last Mordheim camapign I ran, the WH player did this, using Empire Flagellants for the bulk of his warband, and it looks fantastic.

There's this figure from Rusted Heroes:

I'm not sure what exactly the ones in Age of Reckoning are like but if you are looking more for the Solomon Kane style "witch hunter," like the old hero quest model with the hat and pistol Black Army Productions (http://www.blackarmyproductions.com/blackarmyfinal_021.htm) have a very suitable model.

A more classic style witch hunter to the mordheim ones which to me have always seemed a little thuggish compared to those who follow the Witch Hunters Handbook propperly.

Step 1) Buy a tall hat and a coat and a white lace crevat. Maybe some belts with skulls, lanterns and holy water hanging off them. Buy a replica flintlock pistol from a costume store (perhaps froma pirate costume) or an expensive one from sutlers.com.

Step 2) Dress up.

This model here (http://coolminiornot.com/153731) is a sculpt that would suit you perfectly and I know this guy sells most of his minis, you could check his website and see if it's available.

i'd recommend the old witch hunter model from warhammer quest as its a fabulous model.

However as its long OOP, you may need to trawl ebay for one.

Outside the Mordheim range there is also a Warhammer Dogs of War witch hunter model. He came together with a warrior priest colleague. They are called Johan and Wilhelm.

Ebay is a good place to look, the warhammer quest one tends to go for a lot but the other witch hunter minis are quite reasonable

I still have mine! :evilgrin:

One of my favourite models ever (and damn, how much I regret selling the game)...used to use him in my Witch Hunter Empire army, and as I'm a purist, the only one I would suggest to the OP.

The WQ one was actually available from GW until fairly recently, so he might not be too bad on eBay.

The best Fantasy Witchhunter is the 40k Witchhunter:

There are non-GW alternatives, e.g. Wyrd:

I personally disagree with that. There's enough 'tech' related things on the model that you'd definately want to get out the knife and greenstuff. It's mainly the power cables that go up the sword arm and the tech-backpack that he has.
Definately a great model for a classic Witch Hunter look, but definately needs some work to turn him into a Fantasy figure.
