Hyenas are a common threat, on their own no real concern for a mighty hero, but seldom do they travel alone.
Most often they are found in packs, oddly, most often in packs of 6, and in strangely similar poses to one another!
The spirit of the age, as far as the smog-hidden big industrial cities are concerned, King Rat symbolises the sins of Victorian England – wealth from the hardship of others, squalor-for-profit, organised crime, arrogance of high society – and he loves it. Thought to be the head of an underground gang involved in racketeering, burglary, and black market trading, King Rat is a ‘shake his paw, count your fingers’ kind of chap.
His organisation has been at odds with the Metropolitan Police, Sherlock Holmes and Spring-heeled Jack. There are rumours that he has aided Jack the Ripper in evading capture and is involved with the Tongs.
Suitable for Victoriana, role-playing, or modern game settings, he is the second of a small collection of Freak Show figures that Black Pyramid are designing as part of our Vox Populi range of collectable miniatures.
We are hoping to have this figure in production during June 2019 along with one or two other new releases.
Hire yourself some brigands and an Ogre mercenary with Alternative Armies 28mm fantasy releases for May 2019. Two classic codes in new moulds and now on the website. Great characters for any game system (Sea Captain, Forester, Lumberjack and Half Orc) and added to our huge selection of miniatures. Click through for more.
Unfortunately, Salute tends to be so all consuming for the month or two before the show that just about everything else falls by the wayside. Andre Khoo sent us photos of some very well painted Celtos figures earlier in the year and, to our shame, we’ve only just found time to post them. But here they are, better late than never, and very nice they are too.
