Count Stringfellow continues to expand his Coven in Limehouse. However,having recently lost a number of his brides and minions in a skirmish with the Dutch Vampire Hunter Professor Hertz Van Rental and that Northern Ruffian Bibbly and his Bashers he has decided to bring in associates from the old country in Mittel Europe.

Having heard rumours of a " Death Ship" arriving at the docks carrying a suspicious cargo the Professor and his ruffian allies head to Limehouse just before sunset with the intention of meeting the ship and burning it along with its cargo into the river.

Remember though "The dead travel fast". The ship carried by devilish powers has arrived early and has already dropped off its evil cargo... The Vampire hunters are walking into a trap.

However Professor Van Rental has managed to find out the location of the Count's lair and hatches a dangerous plan to lure the Count from his hiding place, destroy his coffin and its sacred earth thereby denying the Count a resting place...

Limehouse after dark, the streets are deserted...









Bibbly's Bashers move along the dockside, Vampires and their henchmen move to meet them..



The Count rises from his coffin and heads out into the night...





Professor Van Rental divides his force in the hope of penetrating the Vampires lair...



Van Rental and the Count meet face to face in a dark alleyway. Unfortunately Van Rentals plan does not work, he is no match for the Counts powers and dies a grisly death...





But wait, it was a diversion! Van Rental's game plan seems to have worked, He has lured the Count from his hiding place. His selfless sacrifice has given humanity an opportunity to destroy this vile evil that haunts the Empire. Avis his devoted assistant seizes the moment and makes a dash for the Count's coffin....



 Only to be caught by Alisha his bride...

Avis is killed in an instant before he has the chance to sterilize the Count's coffin.



Is all hope lost?

What happened on the other side of the table?

Remember Bibbly's Bashers advancing down the dockside?

I'll leave someone else to tell their tale. ;)

But another power is rising...



I think we are getting there with our unoffical tribute to Fistful of Lead: A fistful of Garlic. A few more tweak and it should be good to go... ;D

Lovely stuff guys :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
Some lovely figures and terrain, even though some of it reminds me of Mars for some strange reason ;)
Whats the red and white stripped thing in the second photo?
Never seen that before?
Is it a portable bathing hut or a punch and Judy show?

Nice write up. But will the newcomer assist Count Stringfellow or oppose him?

I'd go with the latter.

The poor professor and his faithful assistant. They certainly showed plenty of Enterprise and can be sure they died for a hire purpose.
