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... )

Some more bits usable for EotD - all awaiting basing...

Some more bits that I've found in my 'to-paint' pile which won't be missed form the projects they were intended for. Most of these are new paint jobs, although a couple are renovations of existing ones. 

Definitely 'City-folks' these guys may either be part of a mob, or may be used in the criminal gang that's being talked about for the expansion (although, in fairness, I'm sure I could make a passable bash at using the rules for a UnGentleman's Club.) The tow outer figures are from Brigade, whilst the centre one is from Foundry's old west line. I've been partly inspired by listening to audio books for Philip Pullman's Sally Lockhart stories (especially the 3rd one) whilst painting these. If I carry on in the same line I may even do some anarchists or the like.

I originally thought these gents might be suitable for Wolfenjager, but I'm not 100% convinced yet. The Chap on the left with the sword might head back to the Early West pile yet. The fellow in the middle will probably be joining a mob of outraged citizens, given that his waistcoat and bow-tie make him look more like an angry cobbler or tailor than anything anything else! The one on the right should be ok to be out in the wilds hunting dark creatures of the night, especially given that he's got a holster on his hip to give him some backup for the percussion cap rifle. All Foundry figures.

The two cossacks will form part of my Nosferatu warband - the old gent with the cane possibly as a guardian, whilst his sword wielding companion will be a thrall. I've tried to keep the tones on the clothing neutral and not too bright, but still fairly colourful. Both are from Westwind. The chap on the left is an old Foundry figure, who has a somewhat dastardly air about him. I wasn't really intending it when I painted him, but he is looking quite sinister. I think he'll probably join the angry mob for now, but as & when I get around to my band of criminals, he might just become a leader or trusted henchman ('Tall Jake' perhaps?)
