Village Mob Armed With Pitchforks and Torches and More 28mm Painted Horror Game Miniatures
Filed under: Fantasy, Horror, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 10:40 am
Torches, pitchforks, and more, oh my! The peasants are revolting! These characters often make an appearance in classic horror films and stories including miniature games.
Well, our mad doctor has finally done it. His experiments may have challenged the limits of scientific knowledge, but his methods have certainly caused fear to spread through the neighboring village. The townfolk are taking matters into their own hands. Here come the angry villagers approaching to air their grievances by force if necessary.
The Doctor would be well served to address the mob’s demands, particularly considering the many flammable chemicals his laboratory is filled with.
These plastic 28mm scale figures are ready to appear in many horror role playing games including pulp action and Call of Cthulhu. They can also be used to add an interesting group to your troops in tabletop wargaming.

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.

The Cult of the Red Hood 25-28mm Scale Fantasy or Pulp Game Miniatures
Filed under: Fantasy, Pulp, Horror, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 11:24 am
Introducing the Cult of the Red Hood! This group of evil cultists seeks to summon a demon from the nether world, known only by its common name Red Hood. The members can be identified by the black and red vestments worn during their dark ceremonies.
Here we have two of the leaders of the cult. Merdoc, the cult’s Grand Priest, wears the symbolic red hood itself. He carries the Staff of Red Hood along with an arcane volume containing the cult’s most secret rites. (This figure is a custom altered miniature.) Standing next to him is Avalin, the High Priestess. Her red hood is a badge of her role as the second in command.
Two Servitor Priests are also represented. Both wear red vestments announcing their positions. Brother Tomlin reads from one of the cult’s lesser tomes while Brother Bathor wields a ceremonial dagger used in the cult’s sacrificial rites.
These cult figures could appear in various miniature gaming settings including Fantasy, Horror and Pulp Action role-playing and table top miniatures wargames.

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.

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™.

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.

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.

A Miniature Mi-Go the Fungi from Yuggoth from H. P. Lovecraft’s Classic Cthulhu Mythos in 28mm Scale
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 3:44 pm

Meet a Mi-Go, one of the alien races created by H. P. Lovecraft in his Cthulhu Mythos.

Hailing from the distant planet Yuggoth, the Mi-Go are thought to be based on the biology of a fungus as that is the closest it can be described by human’s limited understanding of the odd molecular-level differences found in the Mi-Go body. However, the Mi-Go possess advanced scientific knowledge and skills in tissue manipulation which allows them cast their own bodies in many forms. Here is one of the more common forms which appears to be crustacean in design. The bat-like wings allow the creature to travel freely through the aether between planets.
The mass of tentacle-like appendages on the head produce a range of light emissions which appears to allow the Mi-Go to communicate with others of its kind.
This game miniature is based on a 1-1/2 inch (38 mm) disk.The 25mm human figure is shown to give an idea of scale.
The sculptor has done a nice job of capturing the Mi-go’s alien appearance. Although the Mi-Go originate in horror fiction and are used in the Call of Cthulhu™ horror role-playing game, they could just as well appear as creatures in science fiction and fantasy game worlds.
