The Lost Dryad Wytches of Finem Mortuorum.

The last of the great Oaks fell long ago…

Now, in a once flora rich land, there is only red sand and white bones…

What became of the inhabitants of the vast ancient forests? The animals, the little folk, the great beasts and the ancient Dryads who were the watchers and caretakers of the land?

All gone?

Nay, all gone but those who gave their hearts and souls to the darkness before their time was up. With a promise of immortality they chose to flee but, alas, their freedom from the devastation was merely fleeting. Soon everything burned and fell around them and, now, only a few remain. Only the darkest of the Dryad Wytches lived on.

The Wytches are no longer what they were. They are not pure of heart, mind and soul. Driven mad by hunger and thirst they soon resorted to hunting and eating everything and anything in the red deserts. Animal, Man, woman nor child are safe from these wild, screaming huntresses. The Wytches are fast, very fast, and will tear out the throats of half a dozen men before their prey even has time to react.

Their weakness, ironically, is flora. At the mere sight of vegetation they become softened and therefore weakened as their minds are thrown back to fonder, happier times. However, they are not distracted for long, especially if they are hungry for blood.

More on Finem Mortuorum another day.

I think this song suits this dark little band of Wytches.

“We Only Come Out At Night”

By The Smashing Pumkins

We only come out at night, the days are much too bright
We only come out at night
And once again, you’ll pretend to know me well, my friends
And once again, I’ll pretend to know the way
Thru the empty space
Thru the secret places of the heart
We only come out at night, the days are mush too bright
We only come out at night
I walk alone, I walk alone to find the way home
I’m on my own, I’m on my own to see the ways
That I can’t help the days, you will make it home o.k.
I know you can, and you can
We only come out at night, the days are much too bright
We only come out at night
And once again, you’ll pretend to know that
There’s an end, that there’s an end to this begin
It will help you sleep at night
It will make it seem that right is always right
We only come out at night
Hear the creaking of old wood against old wood.

These are the Lost Dryad Wytches of Finem Mortuorum.

I fancied doing something different and it occurred to me that I didn’t have many female minis in my collection so I thought hmmmm Wytches… Evil Dryad Wytches and BOOM here we are.

Also, after purchasing GW’s pack of skulls I new I had to use some of the more unique ones for some kind of creepy project.

They’ll fit in nicely with my Ravenant Horde Of Dark Hallow Army me thinks.

Cheers IRO

  1. Wonderfully creepy stuff- reminds me of a mix of the Evil Dead and The Guardian (been thinking a lot of old horror films today as you’ve probably guessed).

    The details is spot on to especially the bases and the dripping gore.

  2. Heh, I just read/reviewed a comic called “Wytches”, and then I just saw this post. πŸ™‚ Which is fantastic because I am seriously LOVING these. The “fluff” as you tend to call it is awesome, as are the dryad wytches themselves. Awesome post. I can’t even describe how much I love these!

      1. Haha no worries about coming across like a sexist. I’m sure you’re not one! πŸ™‚
        I think I like them so much because of the nature aspect to them and how monstrous they are. (Plus the background info was really neat.) That, and I just like dryads in general, but when you add the scary element to them I wind up liking them even more! I had an old book I’d written with dryads in it, but they weren’t the scary sort. In fact they were some of the few creatures in that book that weren’t of the “scary” or murderous variety. πŸ˜›
