You can see them grim apparitions just before dark- floating above the grey fields. They can do you no harm, but best not disturb them. Their masters might be close by...
Gheists are generally tiny, harmless spirits, wisps of a kind, who serve as messengers and eyes to the more powerful inhabitants of the Underworld. They accompany the Countess, circling around her and keeping her from harm.
In Malifaux I play Gheists as Seishin.
The choice of miniatures was easy, and no actual converting was necessary. I simply took the flying skull bits from VC Coven Throne/Mortis Engine kit. They were painted as white smoky things. Very simple.
The Übergheist is a unique Gheist. He is the Countess' "totem" on her travels through the spirit world.
In Malifaux I play him as Lost Love.

And in the end a group picture of all the Bloodfiends finished so far.
