My 'Gothic Victoriana' project, which incidentally needs a better name, continues…

However, this week we have something a wee bit different. Not a build, not a figure showcase and not an AAR…

Intrigued? Read on…

Entertaining stuff. Thanks!

Very nice!

And speaking of The Red Lion, we have one here in Indianapolis!

Thanks all. I was a little unsure as to what sort of reaction this would get, as it's a bit different from what I usually post. However, rhe response seems pretty positive, so expect further posts of a similar nature interspersed with the usual fare.

And regretfully The Red Lion in my town has closed its doors, but I shall be using it as inspiration for when I build the one for the board.

You could use Penny Dreadful in your Gothic Victoriana' project…

Needs to be played at night under blue lights ;-)

Finally had a read, and quite delightful, though an accompanying scenario would have helped. ;->=

The Red Lion should be quite the treat; looking forward to updates as well.

Is it possible to make street lamps that really work?

Best Regards

Hi Art

One of the later posts on my blog does provide a link to some cheap O Gauge Victorian lamps, which are designed to be wired up, but I'm not sure how easy they'd be to install on a wargaming table.

Hello Carrion,

Thank you for the information…

I will have to check out your blog again…

In my garage…even with lights on…it is still rather dark inside…and it would be amazing to do Hyde Park with my current light source in the garage…

The street lamps would actually assist…meaning that even with small lights as this…players would try to reach the illumination of the lamps for safety…

Best Regards
