The fifth bell-ringer creature (yay, I'm half way through them!). This is a special one, though: the Devil. In folk carnivals a Devil characther is often present, along with Death, Bear with Handler, Hobby Horse, etc.
I was very free with my design, but he nontheless got his pitchfork, hooves and horns. ; )
The body is a Plaguebearer, but lower parts of his legs were replaced with horse legs. Just as I promised, I stole that neat idea from Jeff Vader's Plague Prophet conversion. The head and tail come from a Black Knights mount, and the pitchfork from the plastic Giant kit.
Fun fact: he was first painted in a different colour scheme. I liked it and he looked good on his own, but so it happened that it made him look too different from the rest of his faction. With the makeover he lost some of his devilishness, but at least now he fits in. The deviant... : P This was the first paintjob:

My LGS finally restocked some of The Hobbit range, so I today I picked up a box of Goblin Warriors for my Troglodytes. I like that kit a lot. Each of the 18 goblins is a unique sculpt, and they are all single piece figures, but without looking two-dimensional. They won't need much alteration beside exchanging their metal blades for weapons of either bone or flint.
I also came by a blister of Freeboter's Fate pistols, so my characters can accessorize when the need arizes.
