Pulp Alley: Sherlock Holmes vs the Mummy
« on: May 15, 2018, 05:27:58 PM »
Haven't posted anything lately, so here are a few shots of a recent encounter between Whomever1's Baker Street League and Risen Priestess Kaphet-Nur's Servants of Apophis band.  (These shots were taken by Kaphet-Nur's personal photographer, so perhaps the Baker Street cameraman will contribute a few from the other perspective.)

Both leagues were looking for artifacts stolen from the Cairo Museum in a Trail of Clues scenario.  Kaphet-Nur and the Servants won Initiative and deployed first...



The Servants league contained the usual contingent of random schlubs...the Insane Mob on the right did not survive their own first activation, being wiped out by an Unseen Peril when the wall collapsed on top of them:



Kaphet-Nur bags the first Minor Plot Point, a Caravan Guard:



She then extends a warm Cairo welcome to a visiting London Bobby, while Dr. Watson takes aim from the upper right corner.



Sidekick Baddash locates the Servants' second Minor Plot Point, a shipment manifest in the bazaar:



But time runs out before the Major Plot Point can be recovered, resulting in a 2-2 tie in Victory Points.  So, Sherlock and Kaphet spend the last turn having a face-to-linen chat by the fountain, while a passerby gets to try out the great detective's violin:



Perhaps the two will meet again!
Thanks for your interest,

Nice! I do like that fountain, where's it from, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks, Elk  :).  The fountain is a 15mm resin piece from Novus (scroll down):

The water is Woodland Scenics water effect resin.

Looks like lots of fun. I'm a sucker for anything with an Egyptian theme!

Egypt and Sherlock Holmes, what's not to like here.  :)
I do feel a bit bad about the Mob though.  :D


May I ask who makes Kaphet-Nur?

I really have no idea what I'm doing.

Couldn't agree more -- I hope to see the great detective back on the case in Cairo again soon.
Those Insane Mobs are almost like comedy relief...it's mainly a matter of how entertaining they are before their inevitable demise.
Kaphet-Nur is from an old Reaper line of Egyptian-themed undead minis.  Her name is a pun on "black coffee."

Do keep us posted about possible new adventures if possible. And thank you for the source on Kaphet-Nur.  :)

Meanwhile I'll have to see about fielding an Insane Mob myself...  :D
