First up is Set 3 Gentlemen with guns. It contains five figures all armed with long guns. Top left to right are Repeater Rifle, Shotgun and Volley gun. On the bottom row both figures have Man Portable Gatling guns. I've blu-tacked the guns on to show where they go the gent on the left is pretty easy to assemble and the gun fits well it will require pinning I think.
The Second is a bit odd ot assemble. Its held in a really awkward position its took a few of us to work out how to attach it as the location holes don't quite match up with back of the gun. A bit of filing and mine no fits as it is displayed on the Westwind painted versions. I'm not sure whether mines going to stay the same yet as I think the rigours of game play and storage will knock it off quite easy. I may have to pin it in a different way as the location lug for the left arm is quite small and the other is non existent.
See fellow Empire of the Dead Lunatic Robert Audin's view on this same figure. Link to his Great blog.

Second set cleaned and prepped this week is Set 4 Armed Brothers. Again filling some gaps in the range with various fire arms. Top row two more crossbowmen (They are nicely posed figures but the original set had 4 Crossbow armed Brothers so didn't need more in my opinion) and a blunderbuss armed brother. I quite like blunderbuss's I find them characterful looking weapons. Bottom row left to right two rifle armed brothers I really like the firing pose I like the fact his hood is raised up. Third brother along has a shotgun and finally a brother equipped with a volleygun. All single piece castings quite easy to clean up.
