In case that one image wasn’t enough to convince you, more set images from Netflix’s The Witcher have emerged, this time putting to rest any doubt about The Wild Hunt’s appearance on the show.
Only two days ago, we wrote about an image taken from the Witcher set in North Devon which suggested that the Wild Hunt may come to the show. While the image wasn’t very clear, the armour worn by the riders, as well as the horses looked similar to the one shown in the game and described in the original books.
However, thanks to Mail Online, we now have more pictures to confirm that it’s definitely Eredin’s crew riding around on one of their hunts. “The actors were prepped to shoot a tense battle scene as they held up spears and swords as their horses set off,” said the report.
The new images are much clearer and show the Wild Hunt’s armour in all its horrific glory. As described in the books and shown in The Witcher 3, the Wild Hunt dons dark metal armour, shaped into bones and skulls. If that’s not frightening enough, each of them also wields nightmarish weapons which would put The Witch-King of Angmar’s morning star mace to shame.
The images show the riders charging down the Saunton Sands beach in Devon. While the earlier image showed five riders, the new ones reveal a maximum of eight. It also appears that the rider we pinned as the leader in our earlier report actually wasn’t the leader. The latest images show only one of the riders’ faces, while the others are hidden behind scary looking helms. If we were to take another guess, we’d say that this guy is the leader of the band, and may even be Eredin himself.
To add to all of this, Witcher news website, Redenian Intelligence, has claimed that inside sources have confirmed the riders to be The Wild Hunt. Additionally, the website also claimed unconfirmed reports about Henry Cavill being on the same set.
Laurence O’Fuarain has been confirmed to play the protagonist, Fjall, in the prequel spin-off, The Witcher: Blood Origin. The show is set 1,200 years before Geralt’s tale in The Witcher.
