The Cthulhu Mythos has lured many people to their peril. Here are four individuals from the 1920-30s becoming embroiled with the Mythos.

The young college co-ed. As a library research assistant, she stumbled into Mythos references in the restricted book stacks of her university library. Now she has a thirst for divining even deeper arcane knowledge.
The reporter. Hungry for sensational stories to add to his byline, he is always on the lookout for tidbits with even the smallest hints of the occult.
The socialite turned investigator. Her social connections have revealed rumors of dark activities among the upper classes and she intends to uncover the truth.
The doctor. Drawn into the dark webs of experimental medical techniques, he finds himself entangled with knowledge better left unknown.
These 28mm scale painted resin miniatures would fit into any 1920-30s Call of Cthulhu™ game. They also can be useful in other Horror and Pulp Action table top miniatures and role-playing games.

Majestic 13 Alien Hunting Team 28mm Plastic Minaitures

In 1941, humanity made its first verified contact with extraterrestrials on Earth in modern times. The result was the creation of a secret worldwide network of organizations capable of fighting possible alien incursions around the planet. That effort evolved into Majestic 13 and is tasked with defending the Earth while keeping the existence of aliens from the public at large.
Select teams of operatives are maintained and dispatched to deal with extraterrestrial threats around the globe. This is one such team.
Armed with a variety of weapons, including some incorporating captured alien technology, they are our first line of defense.
The Majestic 13™ table top miniatures game is published by Snarling Badger Studios. It is a miniatures agnostic game system which allows you use any appropriate miniatures.
These plastic 28mm scale figures can represent your Player Characters or NPCs in many science fiction table top miniatures games and role-playing games including Majestic 13™, Stargrave™ and Five Parsecs From Home™.

Cargo Handling Robots for 25-28mm Science Fiction Miniature Table Top Games

So, you are the captain of a small starship. You earn part of your revenue by moving cargo between planets. Consider adding some Cargo Bots to your crew.
These lower-tech robots can simplify the job of loading and unloading cargo, particularly for smaller vessels. Once given their instructions, they can be left on their own to complete the job while you and your organic crew perform higher priority assignments.
They are also very useful in retrieving cargo from derelicts being salvaged (or by the unscrupulous space pirate, to secure newly “liberated” cargo).
These game miniatures stand about 1-1/8 inches (28 mm) tall, including the base.

Treasure Hordes for 20 to 30 mm Role-playing and War Games
Filed under: General, Fantasy, Pulp, 25-28 mm, Pirates, Scratchbuilt

A bit of a departure from our usual fare. Although not exactly a miniature figure, these small scenery pieces are pretty related to our regular topic so I hope you find them of interest.

Treasure! Gold, gems, magical items!  It’s what every adventurer hopes to find!

These custom-made painted scenery pieces can be used as objective markers for your 20-30mm fantasy tabletop war gaming such as Warhammer Fantasy. They can also be used in many role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons.

The base of each treasure measures about 1-1/4 inches (32 mm) in diameter. Here is one of the treasure hoards shown with a 25mm scale miniature to give you an idea of size.

These treasure piles and other miniature scenery pieces can be found at my store along with my painted figures. If you have an interest in miniature scenery and terrain, you can find much more information on my Universal Terrain blog.

New Web Store Finished

Posted by: G R @ 2:55 pm

You probably have noticed that I have not posted recently. I have been spending most of my time migrating my web store to its new location. The transfer went smoothly, but it was very time-consuming. Now that the new store is open, I hope to find some time for painting some miniatures again. So I should be posting again in the near future.

In the meantime, I invite you to check out the new store if you are so inclined. The store can be found here:

Thank you for your patience during this construction period!
