Victorian British Servants with Weapons 25mm Painted Game Miniatures
Filed under: Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, Victorian Science Fiction, Steampunk
Posted by: G R @ 10:09 am

Time to meet the staff. You will notice that we run a tight ship here on the manor. The servants are prepared to protect the manor house from all sorts of unwelcome visitors, including rough vagrants, agents of criminal masterminds, even the servitors of the Great Old Ones.


First off we have the butler. He is the chief servant and supervises the rest of the household staff. He also manages his Lordship’s extensive gun collection. As his eyes have lost a bit of their sharpness in later life, he has selected a sturdy double barreled shotgun to make up for slightly diminished combat skills.


Our maid handles much of the general housework about the place. She is as ready to wield her shotgun as a duster. Besides, she is quite capable of cleaning up those nasty messes made by her weapon of choice. Getting the blood stains (human or otherwise) out of the parlor carpet is a snap for her, particularly when the blood is freshly spilt.


As coachman, our man is busy with many duties around the manor house, including setting the table ware for the family and guests. He is also quite capable with his rifle in dissuading unwanted guests.


Last, but not least, is Cook. A marvel in the kitchen in preparing many wondrous dishes. She also is handy at applying her rolling pin to the heads of any miscreant who enters her domain. When harsher punishment is called for, she is rather handy with a revolver.


Never under estimate the value of good help.

These 25mm scale miniatures work well as secondary characters in many historical periods from the late 18002 to the early 20th Century.  They would be comfortable in game genres from Victorian Pulp, Steampunk, Call of Cthulhu™ and others.

Cloaked in a heavy cape to keep the clinging fog at bay, this young Victorian woman is dressed for the outdoors. But is she prepared for the evil that hides in the swirling darkness on the brick streets?

Perhaps so. She carries a small revolver for protection. And her proper upright stance indicates a certain toughness hidden in her young years.

Pulp Flier Aviator Action Hero 25 mm Miniature Figure
Filed under: Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, Victorian Science Fiction, Steampunk

Strong winds swirl this aviator’s heavy flying coat as he prepares to fire the machine pistol held in his extended right hand.

His flying uniform is designed to protect him from the rigors of high altitude flight.  The long coat is fur lined, as are his heavy leather gloves.  His goggles sit atop his leather helmet.  In addition, he wears sturdy insulated boots.  He obviously spends a lot of time up in the colder regions of the atmosphere, possibly in his biplane or airship.

The expression on our hero’s face shows battle rage mixed with grim determination as he combats vicious air pirates, heartless automaton clockwork soldiers, or even floating predators roaming the air ways.

This 25 mm game miniature really captures the rough and tumble essence of a pulp aviator.  He would fit in any pulp, steampunk, Victorian Science Fiction, or even Call of Cthulhu adventure campaign.

Imperial Baron in Dress Uniform Victorian Science Fiction or Pulp 25 mm Miniature
Filed under: Pulp, 25-28 mm, Victorian Science Fiction, Steampunk
Posted by: G R @ 5:56 pm

Stiff-backed and unbending, the Baron projects a commanding aura in any
situation.  He is used to having his orders obeyed without discussion,
whether it be on the battlefield or in the social court.

Here the Baron is decked out in his dress uniform.  But the pistol holstered on his right hip is not just for show.  Nor is the saber hanging from his belt.  Both weapons are ready to be brought into a combat situation and used with high proficiency.

This 25 mm miniature would be at home in various game worlds.  In Victorian Science Fiction, the Baron could be the commanding officer of the Imperial German Martian Expeditionary Forces.  Or he could represent the power-hungry mastermind bent on world domination in any pulp action campaign.

Presenting a Victorian Lord and his Lady. Two members of the British upper crust who epitomize the belief that proper upbringing and correct social interaction can win out over any obstacle.

The Lord is dressed in a stately outfit including a long tailed waist jacket. Of course he carries a gold-topped walking cane, which may or may not disguise a hidden sword blade. A freshly cut flower from the estate’s gardens adorns his lapel.

The Lady wears an elegant gown perfect for an evening of entertaining her guests as lady of the manor.

Yes, these two upstanding community leaders are certain that everything is right in their ordered world.  Of course, dark eldar gods, crazed cultists, and criminal masterminds may have different opinions!

Both figures have been mounted on brickwork bases. These miniatures can be useful in a variety of game genres including Victorian Science Fiction and Steampunk. Perhaps they are in fact refined Call of Cthulhu investigators.

British Explorer with Revolver 25 mm Victorian Science Fiction. Pulp or Call of Cthulhu
Filed under: General, Science Fiction, Pulp, 25-28 mm, Victorian Science Fiction
Posted by: G R @ 10:00 am

Every gentleman knows the importance of maintaining one’s disposition in all situations.  Even when preparing to use ones revolver to dissuade those pesky Cthulhu cultists from sacrificing a colleague to the Eldar Gods, to enlighten a raging Venusian swamp lizard in proper civilized behavior, and other social situations.

Our upstanding British explorer is dressed for a day on safari or perhaps an evening of exploring ancient ruins.

This figure would be useful in an 1890’s Call of Cthulhu adventure of arcane horror.  Or in a more historical scenario of exploration in Darkest Africa.
