Hmmm, a subject that has not yet made its way into the new Wiki, but I am feeling too tired at the moment to learn the Joys of Wiki creation. (I just ran a ten hour game... I am beat.)
I started using figures for my 1880s SteamCraft game this week, using the Things That Go Bump in the Night
line from Blue Moon Manufacturing. The civilians pack is especially useful, all but two of the agent figures coming from that set.
The PCs include the toff, the woman with placard, and the brawler.
The remaining PCs came from You're Such A Pain in the Neck
, a vampire set in the same line.Beware of Topless Vampire Bimbos
PCs are the portly gentleman with candles, and the gentle lady with lantern and pistol.
I am fairly satisfied with the line, and intend to pick up a few more. These miniaters are intended for use with the Things That Go Bump In The Night
skirmish wargame, basic rules are included with the sets, and the scenarios look like they might be fun. Prices are reasonable, in part because the figurines are cast in lead rather than tin. While detail is not as sharp as some of the Reaper line it is quite good enough for my purposes.
The least satisfying miniatures are those of the vampires, with the exception of the Nosferatu styled bloodsucker. The 'vampire bimbos' are a bit over the top (of the dress) for my tastes. I may paint up the nobby vamp as 'Count Pompadouri', should I ever desire to run a comedy/horror game.
