Does anyone know of figures that could pass as Hawk the Slayer and companions?

Not sure of manufacturers, but you are cettainly going to need a log and at least 3 elves firing bows to simulate the archer jumping over it and firing multiple times.

Love Hawk the Slayer

I checked out some elf archers on Reaper. Some of them may work.

Remember, Crow's outfit included a hood.

Maybe this guy can represent Hawk.

Gort?

With a little modification, this would be the perfect Voltan.

Hawk the Slayer was rubbish…

It may have been dodgy but had some good fantasy concepts: rapid fire cross bow, mind sword,in my book one of the best elf characters and of course Jack Palance as the tortured vilain.

Sorry that was a line from the cult tv show 'Spaced'.

The major issue for me is the soundtrack it's just like an acid flashback gone wrong.

Bilbo Bagshot: I was like you once. Blond hair. Scraggly little beard. Childlike ears. Full of beans and spunk. I let my principles get in the way sometimes. I punched a bloke in the face once for saying "Hawk the Slayer" was rubbish.
Tim Bisley: Good for you.
Bilbo Bagshot: Yeah, thanks. But that's not the point, Tim. The point is I was defending the fantasy genre with terminal intensity, when what I should have said is "Dad, you're right, but let's give Krull a try and we'll discuss it later."

Glad it wasn't just me who thought that.

Hawk the Slayer IS rubbish! And I love every minute of it. The Rifftrax Riff on it is pretty good too.

I agree with half of that statement.

Figures for Hawk the Slayer – awesome idea.

FYI, Peter Jackson did 3 sequels to Hawk the Slayer, but none of them were as good as the original. For some reason they all had Hobbit in the title.

Hawk the Slayer is great fun to watch. (The hobbit movies not so much.)

My buddy loves Hawk the Slayer, so we incorporated him into a LOTR SBG game. He was hurled off the wall during this game by Shagrat and rechristened Hawk the Brayer to my friends utter chagrin. I used an old Mega Miniatures Guthrie thief sculpt for the mini.

The Brayer is last seen cowering behind the charging Swan Knights in the upper left middle of the photo.

LOL Thomas!

Von Trikenessen. Ironically, my interest was revived after downloading the soundtrack off of iTunes and listening to it while I drive!

I noticed a disturbing similarity to Jeff Waynes War of the Worlds though!
