One of the bigger surprises in the last couple of days of the Empire of the Dead: Requiem Kickstarter project was the appearence of a new faction – Captain Nemo and his crew, with an alternative Captain Nemo sculpt to the one available in the Requiem range of minis.
The new captain Nemo much more like the one portrayed on the big screen by James Mason or Robert Ryan.
Of course, anyone knows that a good crew needs a ship, but where to find one?
Well, the solution could be this model from the Honourable Lead Boiler Suit Company. I first saw this waterline 28mm scale model of the Nautilus at Partisan a couple of years ago, and it is, indeed, gorgeous.
The main hull is 610mm long, and the end of the tail fin, if built to scale, should make the final model 760mm long. At £75, it’s not a paticularly cheap model, but it is a thing of beauty, and what any self-respecting Victorian Steampunk ship Captain would like to be sailing.
