Gentlemen and Jackanape Cedric Hyde

The first supplement for Empire of the Dead's is Called Gentlemen and Jackanape's which adds a bunch of infamous characters that can be hired and add to your warband's. The rules can be found here.

First one to be painted up and my favourite miniature from the range. Is Cedric Hyde the offspring of Mr.Hyde and a lady of the night. This guy is a proper beast of a miniature and for £7.00 is well worth money in weight alone. I must take a pic of him next to a normal figures as he's huge.

Had a bit of fun painting up his trousers in the chequered pattern, Who would argue with this fella's dress sense (not in earshot anyway)

  1. Simon, I love it! Great paint job on those trousers. I'm sure you'll inspire a legion of imitators. What size base do you have him on?

    1. Cheers Scott, All the paint schemes i'd seen where all in plain trousers and I fancied doing something different.

  4. That gun looks huge. It must have been made specifically for him. As for the trousers at least he's got a plain shirt so it's not clashing.... even if a little bright for me to wear!

    1. It is huge mate. It fire 3 shots if I remember at quite a high strength I suppose it the steampunk side of the background.

  5. Wow, if this is an oversize miniature then the gun must be enormous! Nice trousers, by the way :-) .

    1. He's quite a good fighter but you have to be wary of using his special ability because he can attack his own side when he's enraged.

  12. Well, it seems the trousers have caused a stir! Nice work Simon- it's all been said above! Now if you had painted the checks black, would there have been a Rupert the Bear vibe going on? Not that I remember him of course, ahem, I'm far too young(!).

    1. LMAO Rupert has been mentioned elsewhere when I was painting him up. Hence the Green over black choice.

      Cheers mate.

  16. Your paint job is really good, and the pants are a nice bit of fun. I'll have to disagree with you about the model itself though. It's one of, if not my least favorite figure from the range. Horses for courses and all that!
