Dilemma dilemma (please see poll)

I've set up a new poll. Why? you may ask. Or may not, it's your choice. But I'll tell you either way.

I'm having trouble deciding if my GW Sentinel scout walker should belong to my Aetherines (pilot in blue uniform, wearing Pith Helmet) or my UNIT 1891 troops (pilot in dark green uniform, wearing Glengarry).

So the choice comes down to that - UNIT or Aetherines? Glengarry or Pith Helmet? I can't even decide which head to put on until I know, I can't assemble the walker properly until I've painted the uniform... help me, oh generous souls who come visit my humble page! For without your guidance, I am as an idiot with a sack on his head.

Lists of characters for Victorian and Pulp gaming

Again a lost post (in this case, a lost list). Published August 29th 2011 (list originally composed around September 2009)

VSF characters:

Rt Hon. Algernon Plankton-Mintcake, 3rd Viscount Crumblestone

Lt. Crispin Footling-Twerp

Miss Evangeline Crumpet

Lady Penelope Waldeming-Blumers

Miss Gladys Pratt

Miss Doris Stroke

Gerry Izzard

Cherie Splagoff

Lady Dora Hurd

Lord Dougal Hurd

Kitty Stuff

Captain Horst Van Dango

Miss Daphne Negley-Jaye

These are some of the characters that inhabit Rivets' and Whimsy's universe, at least, their original names. 'Plankton-Mintcake' has become Plumstock-Moncke, Footling-Twelp is now Pootling-Twelp (a nice but dim cousin of Whimsy's). 'Miss Evangeline Crumpet' and 'Kitty Stuff' have now mutated into Whimsy herself, and Rivets' daughter Peggy. Not sure about a few of them, 'Miss Daphne Negley-Jaye', 'Gerry Izzard' and 'Cherie Splagoff' for instance sound more Pulp than VSF. Maybe I should shunt them a generation or so later. Oh well, we'll see...
