The Heroes

The brave Heroes of the Aleator Gaming Club.

The brave Heroes of the Aleator Gaming Club.

Some would call them brave others say they’re fools. But in one way or another everybody will have to agree that there is something special about these individuals who face the horrors that lurk beneath, hidden from the sun and Sigmar’s grace. So here they are, the Heroes of Warhammer Quest.

 

Aerenial Fireleaf - The Elf

Aerenial Fireleaf – The Elf by Goatmoerser
Aerenial comes from a part of Athel Loren that is known for its dark blood elm and birch trees. Since his early days he has been a maverick, mostly not enjoying the company of his brethren and sisters. So it was no huge surprise for the elders when he left his kin to travel the Old World promising to return one day. Quickly he noticed that even if full of strange wonders the Old World and his home had an important thing in common. There were countless beasts and monsters to fight and innocent beings to protect.

The young Bretonnian Knight Alain left his barony in the storm-battered northwest of Lyonesse after he was granted a vision by the Lady of the Lake.

Always watching out for worthy enemys to fight and holy relics to retrieve to the chapels of the Lady of the Lake. For this task he joined a colourful party of adventurers. Maybe Alain’s chivalry might inspire his companions one day.

Until then the Dwarf will search for fame and glory on his own, eager to cut each Greenskin’s neck that crosses his path.

He joined a group of adventurers who may benefit from his wisdom as well as from his abilities to manipulate the elements.

As a young boy Kronar lost his entire family in the grim tribal battles of the far North. Slave traders sold him to the South and he had to prove himself in merciless fighting pits as a gladiator. His last master, a rhich Kislevite Lord, appreciated the countless bloody victories of his favoured gladiator and finally gave him freedom. Eventually Kronar went even more southwards to the Imperium of Man in search of treasures, adventures and glory. He still had to fulfill an oath he once swore his now dead father. He had to solve the riddle of their god Chron and prove himself worthy in fight.

Ludger Van Helbeek was born and raised in Marienburg. As an orphan he was taken care of in the temple of Sigmar. This led to a burning desire to prove himself in the eyes of his one true god. Ludger travelled the cities and villages of the Old World, getting more extreme and radical with the years passing by. He was responsible for the purging of the cursed town Hungersteg in Stirland and the execution of the evil Necromancer Wilhelm Ruprecht who he hunted through the whole region of Sylvania. From time to time Ludger can be a man of reason and enjoys to team up with other righteous adventurers to bring death to the enemies of Sigmar.

Willy Muttonchop – The Halfling Thief

Willy Muttonchop – The Halfling Thief by Goatmoerser
From the town of Bogglewort comes the halfling Willy Muttonchop. He has left the Grand County of the Mootland to explore the Old World as he really enjoys living among the other taller denizens of the Empire. Due to certain lucky circumstances there are always interesting things to show up in his pockets. Unfortunately some of the taller folks seem to be not very polite while Willy is around for a longer amount of time. But he has a sunny disposition and doesn’t bother to move along and meet new friends. As a true son of The Moot Willy adores a good meal. Time will tell if the halfling still can keep up with his luck even in the more dangerous parts of the Old World.

    • Thanks 🙂
      It’s all about getting inspiration on the net 😉
      I fell in love with the Hasslefree miniature when I saw this blogpost:
      http://www.damienthevenin.com/2010/02/15/heroquest-les-figurines-3/

      Just the 3 heads included in the hasslefree box were not what I was really looking for. My alternate version is a Space Wolve head from a Games Workshop plastic box (Space Wolves Pack). Have fun using that recipe 🙂
