'Elementary dear Watson' (sorry couldn't help it) These two are sort of hired mercenaries for Empire of The Dead. Rules for these 'Gentlemen and Jackanapes' can be found here and are part of an official add on (free mind you) there are a number of similar characters, Cedrice Hyde, Circ Du Noir Ape Man, Lady Luck (no pic on the website but a beautiful figure), Mr Chop to name a few. They all offer various extra abilities to your starting faction. All very characterful miniatures they will be gracing the pages here as I acquire them. There are some rumours floating about of some additions to the range painted figures of Peelers (Police) Le Strade, Queen Victoria and some armed monks have been circulated about but nothing has been officially confirmed or denied yet.
The Holmes and Watson figures are fantistic Watson in particular is well tooled up with Sword, Stakes, Pistol and Lantern (pistol is optional as the figure also comes with a rifle). Holmes just has a trusty revolver but of course his main weapon is his sharp intellect.
I can see these getting a lot of use in various games. Perhaps even making an appearance in my NMRIH 1888 campaign mentioning that I've acquired some card buildings, ruins some hedges and other bits (warhammer/warhammer 40K) from ebay they need a little patching and tidying up but I got them very cheap so I don't mind at all so have a fair bit of terrain now. (note to self need trees)
Enough waffle here are the pictures.
