First up is is Set 7 221b Baker Street and this comprises of yep you've guessed it Sherlock Holmes and friends! This set comprises of (top row) Sherlock smoking a pipe and a choice of empty hand or his violin. The Good Doctor with revolver (this has to be my favourite version of Doctor Watson) Mycroft (Sherlocks Brother) Sir Henry Baskerville and Mrs Hudson. (Bottom Row) its a nice characterful set. I've received the PDF last week as well but still need to have good read and digest what's in there as its quite packed with new stuff. Though some characters still seem to be missing from the rules from the quick glance I've had.
Set 8 Nemesis Criminals continues the Sherlock Holmes theme with various characters from the novels. Top row we have Irene Adler I love this miniature in her left hand she carries a set of brass knuckles whilst in her right her pistol is a multi barrel pepper pot type. Next up is the master criminal himself Moriarty its a nice sculpt I'm not so sure about the angle he's wearing the hat at though but that's just my opinion. Last in the top row is Colonel Moran again with another lovely rifle. Bottom row has some of the lesser known characters from left to right we have John Clay (The Red Headed League), Doctor Roylott (The Adventure of the Speckled Band) Jack Stapleton and Selden (Both from the The Hound of the Baskervilles). Again I need to have a read through the rules as various characters from this are split through some of the new factions. I think these two sets can lead up to some fun one off scenario's based around the tales told in the novels.

Other prep has begun and I've based all my Police miniatures total of 20 bases done. So thats a fifth of the Requiem KS based. I'm undecided on undercoat at the moment I have some white spray that I may use but haven't made my mind up about it yet.
