I was thinking about games slightly based on the comic books in the The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec series. While I was overthinking this I came up to questions:
-What would be the place to post this here on LAF? I now placed in The Great War, as it's setted around that time
-Does anyone know about suitable miniatures?

Cheers!

Weird Wars I would say, which is where it will be going, presently.  ;)

As a general rule of thumb, if there are any pterodactyls involved, it doesn't belong in "The Great War."  :)

Aha okay, that was where I first wanted to post it. But I thought Weird Wars was WWII..

I'd have thought it was closer to Pulp?
Maybe, even at a push, VSF?

And, as for figures, some of Foundry's Darkest Africa lady adventurers would do, or perhaps Ironclad's Victorian Sci Fi ladies?

(Edit: Beaten to it by former user,  lol, but thats 2 votes for Foundry's ladies)

the Reaper Steampunk versions might be a bit more suitable, if I go by the movie...

On reflection Weird Wars may not really have been the most suitable spot to send this, as though I am unfamiliar with these adventures I believe they lack the "wars" aspect needed to qualify for a place here. It didn't occur to me to send something not set in the Victorian era to VSF Adventures, tomfool that I am.

Alas it is now out of my hands, so it will be up to Christian to decide if this thread is going to be moved on yet again, like some poor drunken vagrant.  :)

Yes, it is difficult to find a tag for that
it is called "gaslamp fantasy" and set on both sides of WW1. I haven't read the comics, thus I don't know if it qualifies for Pulp, but it definitely does for VSF
