Hello everyone,

There are game rules for playing with 28/30 mm figures, "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"?
Which ones and how does it work?

Thank you

I have seen/used GASLIGHT used for this sort of thing. Those rules work fine. Use the "gentlemen" as the various hero/leader figures.

I also think that Two Hour Wargames' Swordplay would work although I have not used them for this period. It is more solo friendly in my opinion.

Very well and how does this rule work ?

What figurines to use ?

And how are the figurines are based?

I do not know anything about fantasy games but that interests me because I am a cinephyle …

Paskal, some of our French membership should be helping you out here, but I'll do what I can. My advise would be to find a convention and watch some "skirmish" or "RPG" games being played to get a little context, and perhaps see at least one set of rules being played.

Figures. Usually for something with a handful or important individuals instead of hundreds or thousands of soldiers, you'd use figures in "28mm" scale--meaning 28mm from the sole of the feet to about eye level. As for the "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" I believe there was a licensed line of figures, but if you ask around at a convention, you may find others--not licensed, but equally suitable. Commonly, they'd be based individually, usually on a round disk about 25mm in diameter--either as thin as you can find in order to blend in, or about 3mm, so you can handle the base and not the figure. But for this sort of game, variations in the basing seldom causes much trouble as long as they are individually based.

I'd suggest you do an internet search for a wargame convention convenient to you. Once you've seen a game and talked to a few people--and purchased a few figures--you'll have a different set of questions.

Welcome and good luck!

Thank you but where to find usable figurines?

Less expensive option in 15mm would be Blue Moon Manufacturing. Check their Horror and Deep Dark Africa ranges.
