Very original initial idea, and simply EXCELLENT work on all accounts.

I guess the Lady Guardian of the Grail is Mary Magdalene? Nice touch.
Maybe not coincidental, then, that the Knights Reliquar are 13: the Leader, his Lady and 11 faithful male companions?

Btw, for those wishing to play 'Gothic Horror' games in other periods than the 'traditional' Victorian era (18th C. for instance http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=276792  /  http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=42516.msg514954#msg514954 as already done for Strange Aeons http://anatolisgameroom.blogspot.fr/search/label/Strange%20Aeons%2018th%20century), an exciting implication of your background history is that the Knights Reliquar, being undead for centuries at the end of the 19th C., were already 'there' long before...
Would they take sides -and then what- if in 1745 the descent of Prince Charlie was only the tip of the iceberg, echo of an 'Underworld' war between Jacobite werewolves and vampires brought from the Continent by the 'German' king?
Josephine would not look out of place / time, alternatively what about JoeK Baroness?

and there is a choice of 'undead pirates officers' for the characters in 'contemporary' dress.



(ca. 1745 they still have a little skin left Cheesy)

Good choice of setting for the home estate. Wink

I had a mind that it would be grail linked, but I thought potentially the 'sins' had got the better of them and after years of not finding the grail, they were offered something sweeter...but more poisoned. Like your take on the backstory though nice.

That is a BEAUTIFULLY MACABRE Gang...the brushwork & basing are OUTSTANDING. I find the entire project to be inspiring. WONDERFUL WORK!

Really gorgeous work there!

And, for what it's worth, I 100% agree with you re: Skellies vs Zeds. Wink

A jewel of a faction! The colors choice is perfect; the touch of (delicately feminine) pink brought by Josephine is simply striking. More scary than any blood red or gore!

One can only wonder about the activities of the 'Walking Dead' Knights Reliquar between the early 17th C. and the Victorian times? Huh?

Compliments for not feeling restricted to 'licensed' / 'official' minis when playing a game http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=44850.msg522244#msg522244. Actually the use of 'proxy' figurines can only widen the audience and booster the 'taking off' of a new game. For instance imho Vesper-on Games would *encourage*  on their site the use of proxy minis to promote their Carnevale http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=247614.
