Merneptah and his followers

I haven't thought of a catchy name for the gang, but at least they are all painted.


The figure in the brown suit and fez is from Artizan's Thrilling Tales range, and the rest are from the North Star set.

With the mummies I've got and the figures from my Blood Bowl fantasy Egyptian team, I am set for our Empire of the Dead campaign as far as figures are concerned. We now have the task of building a set of terrain boards and buildings.

Meanwhile, Spartan Games has finally announced the release of their Ottoman ships for their Dystopian Wars range. It's going to be a busy year for me...

Nice looking group. It will be interesting to see how the game plays out. I'm not too familiar with Empire of the Dead.

Nice job on them all, Artizans desert guides pack would go well with these

Thanks, guys.

Having browsed through IHMN, I can say that they are probably similar: a few characters per gang, with several henchmen. Throw in mystical powers, fantastic equipment, undead and monsters... A campaign system with scenario generators featuring typical Victorian settings, an experience system and upgrades to buy...

I think you can get the same kind of experience with a simpler set of rules like GASLIGHT, but what EOTD and IHMN may offer are more fluff, more equipment, and presumably a more robust points system.

I'll post AARs as we play the camapign, but it may not be soon - so many other projects vying for time!
