(NOTE: I crossposted to Colonial in the hope they might know of sets we haven't thought of yet, but that could be used as characters for VSF and/or 'Steampunk')

QUESTION: Is there anyone else?

I suspect this is more of a matter of what you think VSF figures look like. But back in the ancient dusts of time, I did compile this list.

As well as a list of simple Victorian era figures in 15/18 mm.

I have done no maintenance on this list in over ten years, so most of the links will be to old websites. But you can use TMP guide to try and track things down.

I remember that list. It's a great starting point. I had lost that link a while back. Thanks for re-posting it here.

DyeHard: "I suspect this is more of a matter of what you think VSF figures look like."

I agree completely. The sky's the limit. What a Victorian adventurer/futurist would have looked like is all in the eye of the beholder.

The big one, or one of the little eyestalk ones?

These may offer some nice finds. But it does take some looking:

Also Bluemoon with its colonial and new Boxer line holds many treasures:

Can you imagine these city gentlemen all dressed up as if going on safari, accompanying the time traveler on his second trip into the future?

Of course Mrs. Watchet would have to come along. Who else will tie their shoelaces?

Who am I kidding? They would probably end up on the menu.

So which three books would you take?

Mine:

The Holy Bible
Back to Basics (Reader's Digest)
US Army Survival Guide

Which three books would I take?

With what is available today?
US Army survival guide
US Army improvised munitions field manual (makes the Anarchist's Cookbook look like a Merit Badge book!)
not sure about the third… Bible wouldn't be out of place, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Macchiavelli would be more useful.
