The Night of the Nosferatu is upon us, as the city falls into the darkness of Old Night, the Ancient beyond reckoning, Nosferatu move from chilling nightmare to terrifying reality. Whether on the streets of the city or in the wild places of the land the Nosferatu seek to tighten their grip on the souls of man and their own malevolent traditions.
Ok so I have got hold of my second, third and fourth factions for Empire of the Dead, in this post I will look, in detail, at the Nosferatu – Vampire Clan. I will go through my thoughts for everything from the box, the packaging, the prep work required and then I will display the painted models.
I kinda thought “why not they are so cheap I might as well have a few factions”!!
The Box - Ok so I received my delivery from West Wind and opened the delivery box to find this inside:
The box is of sturdy design and the artwork is really great, Cruel Britannia and the Bloody Vampire!!!
The Packaging - Inside the box is two layers of thick foam safely transporting the beautiful West Wind miniatures, I think this would double up as a good carry case for your faction!
The Prep Work Required - As you can see from the image above the models don’t require a lot of prep work to get them ready for paint, a couple of bits of flash and the odd mould line is all that are on the models and these are easily removed! Then its just a quick kink in the slotta tab to get a more snug fit in the base and your ready for glue and paint!
The Graff - A REALLY awesome model to paint, I love the Gothic Horror feel of this model and the fact that it has a cape, I love painting capes!!!
The Consort - Again an awesome model, loving the flowing gown and the hair do!!! found the riped cloth a nice detail!
The Watcher - Love the staff and Lantern and again the flowing cape of this human, nice detailing on the trousers and the shirt!
Thralls - A couple of nice models, my favourite is the one with the face showing!
And last of all the Bat Swarms - These are really great models, loads of Gothic feel from looking at these. Nice to paint with nice crisp detail!
All in all a great way to get into Empire of the Dead, lovely models to paint and add to your collection. Scorpius GLC says “pop over to West Wind and pick yourself up a box”!
So what do you think? Tempt you to the Dark Side in Empire of the Dead?
