Professor Erazmus

Getting myself back into the mood for some Empire of the Dead painting. I finally got this chap finished. Originally he was sold as a Limited Edition figure when you purchased the hardback rulebook. There are also special rules for him so you can use him in game. His background is of an inventor and a scholar of the occult. I can't see myself using him all the while but for one off games he'll come in useful. The Collector part of me wants them all :D

    1. Thanks Phil. In my eyes he's sort of barmy crackpot so went for a lot of different coloured clothing as if he's not reall interested in that sort of thing.

    1. Thanks mate. Yeah I guess he's more steampunk than most I've posted so far would fit in an inquisitors warband

  7. Wow - another fantastic character. The colors initially made me think of St. Nick - must be the season. Best, Dean

    1. Thanks mate. Yeah he's an expert in the occult and in the latest inventions. Doesn't like fighting unless he has to. So yeah Eccentric is a perfect description.

    Collecting bug for EotD, eh? So will we see one of everything perchance eventually...?

    1. Thank you Bryan. Cool hmmm I'm not so sure most gentlemen might have something to say about his dress sense!

  14. Very nicely done.

    I'm no expert on Victorian fashion but I gather the smoking jacket/cap combo marks him as an eccentric. One step removed from fighting the forces of evil while wearing a bathrobe and slippers.

  15. He is a cool figure. I enjoyed painting him up. One thing with EOTD is the hirage cost of these guys. You never seem to get enough shillings to keep paying the sort of retainer they command. Maybe one guy but no more than that. It means you get very few of the characters on the table.

    1. I know what you mean I suppose really its down to choice and how many in the group are playing to get the best use for them. I think personally I'd use them just for one off games. Rather than in a campaign

  16. Now that's a fun model! And nicely painted to boot. Reminds me of Jon McCririck a little.

  17. Great colour choices. I have no idea what I want to do with mine!
