Wolves seen on the streets of London! Read all about it! AAR...
« on: February 14, 2019, 11:51:12 AM »
The Illustrated London News 14th February 1890.

Wolves seen on the streets of London!

Strange wolf like beasts prowl the streets and attack civilians!

Brave Policemen from Scotland Yard called in to battle these creatures!

Innocent bystanders slain in the attacks!

The public demand answers!



"Ello Handsome, looking for a good time?"



"Move along now Miss why don't you!"



A police whistle is sounded, and then another and another....



Who is this pale man seen lurking in the shadows?



A creature about to strike



Sgt Godley tackles the beast



"Bloody 'Ell there's more of them and this ones even bigger!



"A successful evening for Scotland Yard the wolf pack destroyed, but at the cost of three brave constables. Without the brave assistance of the public and some large Northern Johnnies this may have been a terrible evening for our fine city. the very heart of the Empire!"

The game was played using the forthcoming excellent Fistful of Lead supplement Tales of Horror which will be available to purchase at Salute along with a new range of 28mm Gothic Horror miniatures. More news on those shortly! :)

"So, me an' the lads was strolling round Lime 'ouse after a night on't tiles and we was thinkin' it 'ould be great to get a bit of bashing action down't dockside. It were a bit too quite though, all peaceful like..."






"The sun came up and this weird sort of 'owling started up, like a whippet 'ad been kicked. Owt o nowhere a bloody pack of wolves showed up and came on my lads! Unlucky fer them that old Stinker 'ad 'is shotgun and saw 'em off like."



"Stinker saw off three of the buggers before any other of us 'ad a chance to do a tad of bashing. There was bobbies around an all so it looked like we'd better 'ave off before we got fingered again but then a bloody wolf on 'is 'ind legs jumped owt o bloody nowhere and started 'aving a pop at the bobbies!"



"Now me, bein' a gentle sort, thought it'd be best to give t'bobbies an hand like, yer know, like the peacable citizen I is."



"This ere wolf on his 'hind legs were a bugger to bring down though and it took me an most o t'lads to do 'im over. Even though 'e smelt like a dead wet dog, we saw 'im good and proper and I did catch eye of a white wolf on 'is 'ind legs tryin to get them other bobbies but by the time we'd finished wi ours it'd scarpered."



"I tell thee, this 'ere big smoke is gettin' odder every week but we're lovin it!"

So that's what the other end of the street looked like. I really couldn't see in the half light before dawn! :)

Here's the Wolfpack's perspective, which is very limited due to the lack of opposable thumbs making it near impossible to operate a camera. 

Translations courtesy of Google's Wolf > English translation app.



Yowl, wuff, wuff, hooowl.   (Lady Chuffclencher was at pains to point out that the Limehouse bylaws specifically stated that large dogs must be kept on a lead)



Growl, grrrrr, woof, woof, grrrr.  (We saw the Full Monty boys practicing but decided to give them a wide berth)

 Great AAR on a fantastic table - who makes the white werewolf (it's definately one of the nicer ones out there)?

Brilliant! Excellent photos there and an entertaining write up. I'm looking forward to getting a Tales of Horror game in soon.

Also looking forward to the official announcement on the Gothic Horror miniatures.

Great looking game and set but, Jim, that was a truly horrible mangling of Cockney and Yorkshire slang. lol  'Pearly Kings and Whippet Minge'
