So here is the first of the items that I created this blog for. I have been a fan of the Underworld series of films since they came out. And as a gamer I always thought it would be interesting to fight the epic war between Vampires and Lycans. So for the past year or so I have been working towards getting what I needed to make this happen. As this continues we will discuss the miniatures I've chosen as well as rules I plan on using.
First off, the Background.
I wanted to game in the time before the first movie. Where the vampires were hunting the Lycans in an attempt to wipe them out. This way any setting or place would work. If you try to do the movies or around the time of the movies you kind of limit yourself as they take place over the course of only a couple days. So the battle rages.
It was hard to choose a specific model over another, but here is what I have so far. I'm also looking for miniatures that fit the other major characters in the films.
Selene. The hero of the first movie and its sequal. As a member of the "Deathdealers", Selene can easily take care of herself.
The mini is Copplestones WH1 Warewolf Hunter
Kahn and his Deathdealers are the militant arm of the Vampire Coven. It is their job to hunt and eliminate Lycans wherever they live.
The figures are from Wargames Foundry's Street Violence range. They are the "Hardwire Troope".
Lucian is the leader of the Lycans, while Raze is his lieutenant.
The figures are from Wargames Foundry's Street Violence range. They are converted figures from Gazzas Boot Boys. (Unfortunately I had a bad batch of sealer and they have a cloudy coat to them.)
Last is the Lycans themselves. Currently I have a bunch of Reaper Male Werewolves. I havent really found anything I like better. I have tried to give them a little variation, but its hard with the metal, and the way they are molded. Heres a few.
So thats it for now. Next up rules and more figures.
