Wargaming Musings?

I'm a bit of a butterfly in terms of my attention and sticking to gaming projects long term isn't my strongest point. On the bright side, atleast I flit between the same things. Expect an ecclectic medley of Moderns, Dark Ages, Quar and Early Wild West, almost all in 28mm... (with some 1/48 moderns thrown in... )

More almost finished EotD compatible figures...

More from the painting desk... still awaiting basing. Not sure how to do the bases yet - the 'city' types I'm tempted to do with a muddy gravel look, and the Carpathian types the same dusty ground and grass mix that I've been using for the Chernarus figures. I may try to go for a light mud colour for all, seeing as 'London' games will be happening in the squalid slums of the East End, so muddy dirty streets shouldn't look tooooo out of place. Then I'll add grass for the wilderness ones and stones/cobbles for the city dwellers. 

More from the London Mob (all Brigade games figures) - in this case, another rough type with a musket (although this chap looks a bit less disreputable than some of the others from the line, so maybe an honest man taken to arms as opposed to a ruffian looking for a brawl), a hell-fire preacher with a ruddy great knife (perfect for leading the mob, to cast the unclean out of this green and pleaseant land! Not that Victorian London was green or pleasent I hasten to add...) And finally a female pickpocket, who is using the mob as a way to hide from the law. she may get her sash painted another colour, as under the camera it all looks a bit samey...

My Nosferatu Graf, and stand-in Jack the ripper (in this case, a rogue automaton on a killing spree). I wasn't sure how to do the Graf's weapon, so tried to make it look like ice crystals, but may yet repaint them so that they are metal spikes instead. The weapon doesn't really seem elegant enough to suit the rest fo the figure, but hey ho. The Graf is a Westwind Antagonist, and the 'robo-ripper' is a Foundry Ltd Ed.

The central figure you've already seen, and has only been included for scale purposes. The other 'things' are from the old Grenadier Nightmares line, and thought they might be useful as objective markers (spectral manifestations perhaps?)

A steam automata and his designer. Both from Steve Jackson Games' Steampunk character pack. The inventor could make a good stand-in for Prof. Erazmus. No idea how to use the Automata; maybe as a stand-in for the Ape man special character?

Carpathian Mob members - a Westwind Hungarian Vampire slayer is flanked by two Redoubt 'Russian irregulars'. The chaps with muskets could also be used as vampire thralls I guess, or maybe even as Wolfenjager. Versatile figures! The Slayer is less versatile, but has a great 'I shall stand fast against the dark!' feel to him...
