Mystery Steampunk Knights

A call for help here. I've picked up these 8 minis from ebay this week. They were listed as "28mm Steampunk Knights Templar". Having looked at them now they've arrived there are no manufacturer marks on them. They do indeed appear to be medieval knights. Nearly all of them have pistol holsters and some of them are brandishing either pistol with mounted sights or some sort of carbine.

I've done the usual googling and searched a few forums but to no avail. Does anyone recognise them??

EDIT: Mystery Solved.

Thanks to Don Lancaster on the IHMN facebook page who pointed me in the direction of Cornish based company "Heroes of the Dark Age". They only list one of the set of 4, but the link is HERE.

A quick bit of street dressing painted up. Some wheely bins, bin bags from Black Cat Bases and good old trash cans (as T.C. would refer to them) from Studio Miniatures. All from making those alleyways more interesting. Also sprayed the toy set street lights I'd saved.

Warhammer 40k Legends Book Collection

After seeing it advertised on TV last week my curiosity had been raised by the new Warhammer 40k book collection. So when I found myself in the vicinity of an appropriate outlet (W.H.Smiths) I popped in took the plunge for the first release (£1.99). Thought I'd give a quick first impressions review here.

Frostgrave Campaign - #2 The Wizard's Tower

After searching the ruined city the Wizard's Tower is found, a reported by the dying Captain in the first battle. The Magic user's can feel the presence of a magical item high up in the tower. There is a catch however. The Tower has a new occupant, a giant named Svanfus.

Fat Dragon Buildings Added

Just a quicky.

With more time consuming pieces on the horizon, I printed out a couple of Fat Dragon buildings and put them together. They are simple kits and fly together. I didn't glue the room sections onto the walls as the collapsible version is handy for storage. The higher building has the fire escape option for extra play options.

I need to get some more card to add a couple more to properly have all those back alley venues.

The sky line was starting to look a bit flat, so I added the roof access on one and an AC Unit on the shop. Looking at it now, the taller building could really do with an old chair, etc next to the roof access. Perhaps with small sign saying "Burt Reynolds".
