From ScottB - 28mm Jeeves and Mortimer - Gentlemen with Shotguns - Empire of the Dead (10 Points)

To break up the slog that has been finishing 12 Riders of Rohan (nearly done now), I have been slipping the odd EotD figure into the painting queue... sometimes you just want to paint something different for a mo'...

So I have managed to get another couple of Empire of the Dead Gentlemen to add to my Sons of Empire Faction; the Pall Mall Patrons... I give you, Jeeves and Mortimer... seemed good names for a duo...

Here they are guarding the entrance to the Cemetery, with shotguns loaded..., one double barrel, the other pump action?

Shotguns are useful in the game as they ignore the terrain cover modifiers for shooting... oh, you're hiding behind that hedge? Boom! Ha Ha!

I only have two more Gents to paint up now... both with volleyguns :)

But they may have to wait... I am expecting delivery of another shipment of 54mm Gallipoli figures on Friday, and I have recently been reminded, the deadline for completion is actually the end of March! Eek!!

Back to Jeeves and Mortimer, and hopefully these two figure may see me reach my 600pt target, earlier than expected, thanks to the bonus points for the Bonus theme rounds... so I suppose I better add to my target... there's still points to come for the Comedic bonus round, and I hope (or need!) to get 20 more 54mm figures done for end of March, so lets bump the target up to 900pts and see if I can get near it!

Fingers crossed!

From Curt:

These are wonderful Scott. The fellow with the kilmarnock hat and matching scarf is quite dashing, but my favourite has to be the bowlered chap with his shotgun up and leaning into the anticipated kick.

Good luck on your next batch of PJ 54mm figures - I look forward to seeing them in the coming weeks!


  1. I say, those coves look rather dangerous, what?

    Great work Scott :)

  2. Nice job with these! Best wishes on reaching your new target.

  3. Two dapper gents and no mistake. They may only get you 10 points true but what a good 10 points.

  4. Change is good, really like the aiming guy, great work


  5. Very nice wor! They're full of character.

  6. Really like these guys. You just know their luggage contains a cricket bat.. Top job

  7. Very nicely done, I also like the scenery a lot!

  8. Great pair of figures, as is the background scenery.

  9. Nice painting on these deadly dudes.
