You can't have monsters without the brave souls who are willing to stand against those horrors! As such, we are excited to introduce a new series of figures which will make their debut in our Monstrous October sale - the Templar-themed "God's Fire" series from Emil Wickman and Steven Biesiada.
The "God's Fire" series was actually supposed to be part of our planned September "Sneak Peek" sale. We postponed that sale to give collectors' wallets a break, but these heroic Templars would not be denied! We will be offering not one, but TWO Templar heads in our next sale! These heads are part of a larger storyline that Emil and Steven have created together. The first of these heads is for the character known as "The Believer."
Here is the bio for this character:
Brother Lundverge was a peaceful young monk living in a small monastery located on the outskirts of a small town. He loved the mundane lifestyle of monastic living. His world was turned upside down when a horde of vampires set their sights on the local village, harvesting their victims slowly, as if they were merely a food resource not to be squandered, but instead rationed.
The leaders of the monastery recommended prayer as the only answer to help the withering townspeople. Lundverge was the only monk who looked for a more proactive answer. As the other monks prayed, he studied the writings of the great library, learning the weaknesses of all monsters. Wooden stakes, garlic and weapons made of silver became his new tools. He gathered and prepared while his brothers prayed, and the townspeople hid terrified in their homes every night.
The night the vampires attacked the monastery, the monks dropped to their knees praying for divine intervention. The vampires approached slowly. Lundverge emerged from a doorway, wreaking of garlic and armed with wooden implements and holy water. He single handedly repelled the attack and the first steps toward liberation of the town were taken.
He continued to learn by seeking out experts, training in combat and he eventually left the monastery. He has become the most feared monster slayer in the land, being referred to across nations as The Believer, for his almost fanatical religious views, and his belief that he is the answer to his brother’s prayers for divine intervention on the night of the vampire attack. He is feared by all evil creatures and men alike.
He is now the leader of a special five man group of religious warriors. His team is sent on the most dangerous missions where success means survival to the cause. The Believer and his companions bring swift justice to all who pose opposition to righteousness.
This heads will be available as an unpainted piece as well as a limited number of painted pieces from Steve Biesiada. They will will all be for sale starting on 10.31 at 3pm EST. Look for more releases from the "God's Fire" series in future sales - as well as more reveals for the October sale!
