Evil Cultists For Halloween Pulp Horror Games Like Call of Cthulhu 25mm Scale
Filed under: Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 4:02 pm
Scattered clouds scuttle across the dark night sky on a special Halloween night. Not only is the rare full moon shining in all its glory as the witching hour approaches, but the stars are finally aligned! It is time for the cultists to assemble and perform their ancient rite to summon an Elder God!
 
These cultist minions are decked out in their best robes and hoods to usher in a new reality of terror.
 
 
Some of the followers carry flaming torches to illuminate the evil rite.
 
 
Other members of the cult are armed to prevent any foolish interloper from interrupting the ceremony. They are armed with Thompson sub machine guns! Enough firepower to dissuade those meddlesome investigators from Miskatonic University who have been asking too many questions lately.
 
 
These 25mm scale miniature figures would make fine cultists in many pulp horror role-playing games such as Call of Cthulhu.
 
You can see these and all of my other painted game miniatures by visiting my store.

Here are five graveyard ghosties ready to drift about your lonely cemetery, abandoned house, or forgotten battlefield.

These miniatures are sculpted in the 25-28mm game scale. Ghostly spirits can appear in nearly any style of role-playing game or table top miniatures game. Fantasy, horror, pulp, science fiction, they all can be enlivened by a phantom or two.

Trio of Painted Miniature Call of Cthulhu Investigators in 25mm Scale
Filed under: Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 3:55 pm
The whispers from the Elder Gods span the globe. Signs of the Great Old Ones and their minions can appear in every corner of our little planet. Here is a trio of steadfast investigators who spread across the world, daring to walk into the most remote areas in their pursuit of knowledge of the Lovecraft Mythos.
 
Clad in heavy protective clothing, our first investigator searches the barren wind-swept expanses of the polar regions. Constantly using his binoculars to seek out small, unusual tell-tale signs on the horizon and known landmarks that appear on his rough maps. The bone-chilling cold climate may make the human presence in the Arctic and Antarctic a mere spec on the white landscape, but other beings may still be found hidden within the frozen wastelands.
 
 
Our second explorer walks a much warmer environment, the great continent of Africa. Suffering both the parched, heat-soaked desert areas and the humid, dark jungles, he seeks out any evidence of the Outre. The ruined towers of ancient cities rise from the shifting sand dunes before disappearing again below the water-less sea. He follows rumors of unearthly structures hidden within the impenetrable green jungles. Our investigator is armed with a large bore hunting rifle, a heavy revolver, and a sharp knife should he be confronted by unfriendly natives or the more deadly creatures drawn from other dimensions.
 
 
Finally, our last traveler plies the rolling waves of the South Pacific. Following the rare mention of strange things, he visits remote islands, both those on the regular shipping lanes and those rising from uncharted waters. Armed with both a gritty determination and a semiautomatic pistol, he searches for proof of things that Man is not meant to know.
 
 
Each of these investigators could appear in many horror role-playing scenarios, including those of Call of Cthulhu™.

Warbots: Robotic Death Units for 25 to 28mm Scale Science Fiction Miniatures Wargaming
Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 1:01 pm
Warfare has always resulted in technological advances being introduced to the battlefield. The advent of artificial intelligence allows for the creation of autonomous mobile “warriors” to be used in combat roles.
Here are a few battlefield robots, or “warbots“, ready for your 25-28mm scale table top and role-playing miniatures games. In addition to battlefield combat missions, these units are used in perimeter security roles for strategic installations.
The WB132 Warbot is a wheeled gun robotic soldier fielding a single large caliber weapon. It is commonly referred to as “Cyclops” because of its singular sensor mounted in the unit’s “head”.
Another wheeled warbot, the WB133 is based on a quad-wheeled chassis. Nicknamed “Wardog“, the WB133 features a single large caliber turret gun. Numerous sloped and angled armor plates protect the unit’s body.
Finally, we have the WB134 which uses an advanced anti-grav propulsion system. This allows this warbot greatly extended maneuverability over a wide range of battlefield terrain. The nearly soundless propulsion has caused the unit to be dubbed “Ghost” for its ability to move silently, appearing without warning from smoking battlefields. Its firepower comes from a dual-barrel energy weapon.

Painted Miniature Abominable Snowman Yeti Monster in 25-28mm Scale
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 11:41 am

A large shadow moves in the swirling snow storm. Suddenly, a furred beast bursts from the white landscape, an inhuman roar crashes across the frozen land!

It is the mythical Abominable Snowman and he is very unhappy that you have dared to enter his domain

The creature’s coloration allows it to blend in with the snowy environment. Its natural camouflage makes it very difficult to detect the monster at any distance.
The Yeti possesses deadly claws on its hands and feet that are capable of inflicting severe damage. As seen in the pictures, the creature also has large dangerous teeth and it’s bite can easily shred clothing and body tissue. Even armor cannot hold up to repeated assaults by this powerful monster.
This creature is large and will tower over most 25-28 mm scale human figures. It stands about 1-7/8 inches (48 mm) to the top of its head. The base measures 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) in diameter.
The Yeti can appear in  many game settings. It could be used in fantasy, horror, science fiction, pulp action, and super hero role-playing adventures and table top miniature war games.

Wizard’s Apprentice Carrying Pile of Magical Scrolls 25mm Scale Fantasy Miniature
Filed under: Fantasy, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 3:07 pm
Great wizards are not born, they spend an enormous amount of time studying magic and its workings. They usually start their arcane careers by apprenticing themselves to an established magic user. In most cases, apprenticing means handling a lot of mundane tasks for their teachers.
Here we have a young female apprentice hoping to learn the magical arts.
Sometimes, the job requires the student to do simple tasks, such as running to the master’s library and collecting the pile of scrolls necessary for her next spell session.

Miniature Ice Orc Warrior for 25-28mm Scale Wargames and Role-Playing Games
Filed under: Fantasy, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 10:18 am
There are many dangers awaiting to confront the unwary adventurer in the wintry realm. The great ice orcs are one of the most dangerous.
Large, intelligent and evil, these cousins of the common orc are easily recognized by their pale blue skins. This orc warrior makes a formidable enemy on the battleground.
His main weapon is a wicked battle axe. He also carries a dagger in a sheath on his hip. His armor consists of studded leather armor over a chainmail coat, as well as a pointed helmet. He carries a metal reinforced wooden shield in his left hand.
The sculptor has done a nice job of capturing the combat ferocity of this 25-28mm scale miniature. The ice orc can easily find a place in many fantasy role-playing games including Dungeons & Dragons™ and table top war games such as Frostgrave™.

Dungeon Serpent Stalks the Unwary - A 25-28mm Scale Miniature for Fantasy and Horror Game Encounters
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 3:33 pm
Danger lies in the darkness! The dungeon serpent hunts the unwary adventurer.
These creatures slither among the dark chambers of underground dungeons and caverns. Their dark coloration allow them to be almost invisible in the shadows even in the presence of flickering torchlight. Only a very faint whispering noise made by their scaly bodies flowing across floors may alert a possible prey that he is being hunted.
Intelligent, these monsters are known to hunt in packs as well as solitary predators. When attacking, their mouths split open into four prehensile “lips” that grab their victim, pulling him into the gaping maw lined with poisonous fangs.
This miniature works well with 25 to 28 mm scale wargame figures. It is generic enough to be able to appear in a wide range of game settings including fantasy, horror, pulp and science fiction.
