Johann Van Helsing (Society President)

Johann Van Helsing is Dr. Abraham Van Helsing’s adopted son. He was left on Abraham’s doorstep one night, and the secretive vampire hunter could find no one to take the child. Though he tried to keep his affairs with the Slayers private, Johann was an inquisitive boy and eventually joined the cause. Abraham saw to his training himself and apprenticed him to the Brotherhood to further refine his skills.

I tried really REALLY hard to get the eyes "just right" but a combination of the face actually being slanted (only having one of these I can't tell if its a casting error, upon saying that I have to admit both sets of claws were miscast and they've been re-built using plasticard) and the bloody brim of the hat means I was stuck with what I could achieve. But on the table the brim of his hat covers the upper part of his face - so I needn't have bothered really.

Johann Van Helsing (Society President) – 20 Shillings

Slayer Claws (Counts as being armed with two Swords) – 6 Shillings
Gas-Powered Repeating Crossbow (Counts as a Man-Portable Gatling Gun) - 15 Shillings
Stake – 2 Shillings

Total Cost - 43 Shillings

Only Harker to do now!

Mr. Ashley A. Ashcroft - Regular Slayer Society Member

Mr. Ashley A. Ashcroft (before you mock, its a real name of someone I know LoL) - was a well respected Architect, his house and garden designs were renowned throughout England and Wales.

One day he was called upon to renovate a very old building, when he and his work team were examining the foundations in the cellar - one of his labourers was attacked, he died quickly after having his throat horribly torn out.

It wasn't long before Ashcroft came face to face with the Vampire that had been trapped down there, feral and decrepit Ashcroft faced the terror and killed it in spite of his workers fleeing in terror. Harker, hearing of Ashcrofts encounter (and his apparent natural talent for killing Vampires) quickly recruited him into the Ranks of the Slayer Society.

"He'll do" seems to be my constant remark about my own Painting, but this bugger was troublesome. I simply COULDN'T get him finished - I had a bad mental block over him. Still my "core" Regular Members are done - everything is gravy from now on.

Mr. Ashley A. Ashcroft (Regular Member) – 10 Shillings

Light Pistol – 5 Shillings
Knife – 1 Shilling

Total – 16 Shillings
