The third instalment of our Chaos range by Mick Darpa hints at the birth of Chaos to come. The Monstrous Regiment of Women includes a Brood Mother, her growing litter, two other "ladies" and a monkey-headed Pope. Looking to the skies there is a giant who needs help holding his own nose and down below his knees, the Ankle Biter Ritters - a unit of imps riding emaciated hounds.
Two new sculptors to Eureka, Delaney King of Darkling Games and Benjamin Zerbib (many Continental companies have his work) have made the Zombie French and terrified civilians.
May 1821 a plan near thirty years in the making swings finally into action.
The Emperor's body is spirited away from its resting place in St Helena and transported north to the birthplace of voodoo, the island of Haiti.
A loyal cadre of French officers believe they are resurrecting Napoleon to once again lead them into battle. But the high priest of darkness with who they entered into this ill-considered pact is scheming his own revenge against the Emperor who enslaved Hispaniola and denied the revolution. Former Revolutionary soldiers sent to Haiti under General Victor Emmanuel Leclerc to suppress freedom are now resurrected to fight against their former comrades and the whole of Europe.
Napoleon himself is now undead but held in thrall to the command of Baron Samedi and his representatives on Earth. The armies once commanded by men are now conquering in the name of Obeah. Citizens of Europe and indeed the globe, beware!
Where would a zombie horde be with no one to menace? Luckily French sculptor Benjamin Zerbib has risen to the occasion and made two sets of civilians for us: the Incroyables and the Merveilleuse. These figures will also find plenty of use in any 18th Century setting, they don't have to fight the undead and are quite at home cutting each other dead with witty repartee.
