A Little Present for a Top Blogger

Top Bloke Paul of the Man Cave is currently steaming home from overseas deployment in his 1:1 scale Frigate. That's him giving a wave to his replacement.
As a little welcome home present I've painted up some steampunk figures for him. I know he's a bit interested in In Her Majesty's Name, so I got hold of the Scotland Yard set from Northstar Miniatures. If it turns out he doesn't like the game, most of the figures are generic enough for various pulp or Cthulu games, with the exception of the four coppers with their English All Electric Truncheons. Here's the whole gang.

Advised of course by a consulting detective and his oafish doctor friend to help with plot exposition.... the chagrin of the actual detectives who are actually paid to do their job...

...but when there are gigantic hounds or Imperial German zombies or inscrutable Tong gangs to be taken down, it falls to the special constables....

...or even the plods on the beat!

Happy returns, Paul!


  1. They look great - I picked up the set at Colours a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait to get going on them. The Brick lane Gan look good too.

  2. Very nice, not my thing - but fantastic figures ;)

  3. Greate painting and a very nice gift !

    Best regards Michael

  4. Lovely figures, and very thoughtful present.

  5. I am most humbled good Sir, and I can assure you a good home for them with many adventures to come! Very thoughtful and generous of you. Thank you very much.

    Looking forward to that first ale together!
