Requiem Kickstarter Model Review - The Introduction

A brown box was waiting for me when I arrived home this evening! My order from Westwind has finally arrived and my first impressions are...I am not disappointed. The miniatures were well protected inside the box with plenty of bubble wrap. The vehicles  had their own little pieces of bubble wrap so as to avoid chipping whilst in transit.

The first models I will be reviewing will be Set 1 - The London Bobbies. I have been looking for a quite some time for a set of Victorian police miniatures and the Westwind models are excellent. Over the next week or so I will give an objective review of all the models I have purchased and after that I will let folk know how I get on with building and painting the miniatures.

Read all about it in the next blog post.

Well it should be any day now! For the time being I can only list the models which are coming down from Westwind.

I have ordered the following:

Queen Victoria
Mr. Hyde

and finally....

Once the models are down I will review them a set at time starting with the Police. Until then...

Westwind Kickstarter Update

Just a quick update, I spoke to Wendy from Westwind the other day and I should be receiving my order early next week. I also added some of the cobbled resin bases to my order. Watch this space for my review.

First skirmish report

I have added my first skirmish report up on the Skirmish report page. I hope it makes sense!

In the Beginning

This site will be dedicated to all things related to Empire of the Dead. A Steampunk horror/fantasy skirmish game from Westwind Productions. In time I will be adding more 'stuff' to the site. The name for the site is based on an actual club which exists in London.

The Savage Club was founded in 1857 and remains one of the leading Bohemian Gentleman's Clubs in London. Clubs elsewhere have borrowed both the name and the style, which continues to be the 'pursuit of happiness' - a quest made infinitely more agreeable by the fellowship of members who are known to each other by the sobriquet "Brother Savage"
(Taken without permission from the front page of the Savage Club's website)

I will try to update regularly but with as with all things related to real life this can be quite a challenge. I have created several pages in addition to the blog frontpage. You'll be able to find a modelling page. This section will contain all things relating to creating  a suitable gaming world for EMotD. As well as featuring my painting efforts I will put up info relating to any terrain building projects.

The Casebook is an opportunity for me to indulge in some fictional writing. I may well use this on a wider scale in the future for developing scenarios for skirmish games.

Finally there is the  Skirmish Reports section. In here you'll be able to find AAR's relating to games played at my local club. Well that's a brief synopsis of my intentions for this site. In the meantime I am awaiting for the Empire of the Dead: Requiem to arrive at my door in June. Until then I will be reading the rules and buying some 'jolly good fellows' when I head to Salute 2013 later next month.
