Thanks for the suggestions in relation to the hussars, Santa did deliver a few interesting figures and sprues so watch this space for some conversions.

In the meantime, here are some clue markers based on some odds and ends included in the Reaper Bones IV Core Set.

A big spooky statue:


A small spooky statute (and possibly the scene of some unpleasantness):

There is a message on the side of this one in a nod to the novel "Twelve" by Jasper Kent. Could it be that Russian agents are active in the Peninsula?


I am not sure what this was meant to be, so I painted it like... I am not sure really. Definitely requires further investigation.


A large book, probably about creepy crawlies:


Here is a large skull painted a bit like the art in the film "The Book of Life" (although admittedly that is based on Mexico's Day of the Dead and therefore probably has nothing to do with Napoleonic Spain):



This is not an orange bush, it is my attempt at painting fire. Was someone interrupted while trying to burn a document?


And a group shot:


08.12.21 Edited to correct the name of the novel by Jasper Kent.

Excellent! That's what clue markers should be like!
Proudly not painting Wars of The Roses since... ever

A couple of Victrix Light Company men, investigating the French, and possibly worse...

Thanks both!

Here are a few more bits and bobs. First, a Wolf from Blacklist Games:



A Black Dog from Reaper (I don't think the rule book specifies a maximum number of heads). In the game a Black Dog is more deadly than a Wolf, which is just as well as the Black Dog model is much bigger!





A random 3D printed steam punk style lady who might do as a Veteran Hunter or similar:




And, of course, innocent civilians get caught up in the upheaval, like this poor gentleman:

Too funny when you are looking at the figure at the same time.

Those all look great! The Black Dog I would think it would be bigger as well, having more then one head, I wouldn't think it would really matter.

I am looking into other manufactures for wolves to see a size comparison. To find my idea of a black dog as well.
