Victorian Thug's and another Big Thank you

Finished off my Victorian Thugs this week they will mainly be used for a Criminal gang if rules get reached in the kickstarter. But of course Empire of the dead is so versatile I can use Gentlemen faction rules and re-skin it for criminals. Also the close combat equipped members can add numbers to the Lycaon faction as Wolfskin's. Not the greatest of sculpts but they'll fill out the ranks nicely.

The set is from Wargames Foundry's Victoriana Range Armed N'ver Do Wells pack, I haven't finished the fifth member of the pack yet who is a pistol armed lady as I haven't thought of a use for her at present.









Edit At Scott's request add a comparison picture with some Empire of the Dead Lycaon Wolfskin's


Just realised I haven't painted the neckerchief or whatever its called on the knuckle duster guy.

I've also got another big Thank you!
This Time to Fenris Games.
Every so often on Facebook he gives away miscast bases and such and on Monday I managed to get first dibs on some lovely 30mm DS Innsmouth Cobblestone bases.
They came yesterday and they are lovely just needs sanding down a little. They will be perfect for Empre of the Dead as well and I shall be using some on my Vampires.

I shall certainly be ordering some more products from Fenris Games as no doubt the time saved sculpting will help me when I get my stuff from the EotD Requiem Kickstarter

  2. Congrats on the bases. I also like the figures. I think Fenris will be at Salute this year as well, which is important to know as Ian and Jo don't do many shows.
