Well these are the first of my Empire of the Dead Requiem kickstarter figures. I've had these figures on the painting table for 3-4 weeks got inspired to do create a Wulfen Jaegar Faction (monster hunter themed faction) after watching the trailers and first few Episodes of Penny Dreadful.
I had a slight interruption in painting them as the ATDE figures landed on the painting table and jumped the queue to the front. Now having finished 3 out of the 4 figures and nearly finishing the last one I decided to get these completed and off the paint table to clear a bit of space.
Now I'd really like to of got the Westwind Vampire Wars ones but I have far to large a leadpile of EOTD and saving cash for holidays means painting what I've got for now haha!
The faction itself gains a bonus to combat and a negative to shooting only a +1/-1 to there stats but I figured in all the movies they always seem to have a fair few guns. Of course these are all painted as individuals as they can also then be mixed in with all my other gentlemen clubs etc.
I've picked the Tom Gaunt KS exclusive figure as the club President (leader) just because he looks cool and has all the right gear. Mr. Gaunt has a whip, stake and a groovy shotgun type weapon and also has some rather large shells in a bandoleer across his chest so I've painted them with silver tips for yep you've guessed it to use as silver bullets.
Next up the Vice President this is from the gents with guns blister This chap anyway has a repeater rifle figuring his slightly lower shooting skill can be compensated with firing more shots. All these figures are part of the Gentlemen with guns set.
Up next are just two standard gentlemen members one equipped with a shotgun the other with a Volleygun. I really love the volleygun sculpt in the game it can lose off 5 shots in a volley but only the once. Perfect I figure for blasting werewolves and the like.
I have 3 large hounds that are on the painting table but at the moment I'm in to minds as to whether to try and paint them with Rottweiler type markings or do them in a tan colour similar to my Otherworld Warhounds.
(I really must track down pics of the retail packs as they split this set in two from the KS having the two man portable gatling guns in one blister and the other 3 in another but adding a fourth member to the blisters but theres no dam pics on the site yet of the mysterious gentleman with gun and what weapon he has!)
