Reptilian Alien Space Warrior 25mm Scale Miniature Game Figure
Filed under: Science Fiction, 25-28 mm
Posted by: G R @ 7:16 am

Not all alien species in the universe are peace loving.  Some make good combat warriors.

This warrior carries a submachinegun slug thrower.

His reptilian species comes from a planet with high levels of infrared light from the home system’s star. Thus he wears a hi tech set of goggles to enhance the infrared spectrum in the local environment.

This 25mm scale science fiction game miniature is mounted on a tech base that could be the deck plating of a starship.

Giant Barbarian Warrior with Battle Axes 25mm Scale Fantasy Game Miniature
Filed under: Fantasy, 25-28 mm, Monsters
Posted by: G R @ 4:37 pm

Towering over his opponent, this giant barbarian fighter is fierce in battle. He wields two large battle axes to hack his foes to pieces.

For protection, this mighty warrior wears a variety of custom fitted plate mail armor. Although this does leave a lot of his skin exposed, he is a tough fighter. Several recent wounds that would have downed a human combatant have been tended to and sewn up without any significant adverse effect to his combat readiness.

In addition, pieces of animal skins (complete with heads) and other leather armor help to add to his barbarian appearance. He has mounted the skull of a vanquished non-human enemy to the front of his armor.

An iron color with padlocks rings his neck, possibly used by his “master” to keep this formidable fighter under control until released into battle.

A fine example of brawn being favored over brains in combat. But don’t mistake his somewhat vacant stare to mean he is particularly dim-witted in a fight. You do so at your own peril!

This large game figure stands 2-5/8 inches (66 mm) to the top of his raised axe. Here he faces a standard human 25-28mm knight. Guaranteed to grab the attention of players in any fantasy role-playing encounter. He would make quite the vanguard for your army in any table top war game as well.

H. P. Lovecraft Horror Miniature Colour Out of Space Monster
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters, Scratchbuilt
Posted by: G R @ 12:14 pm

This miniature creature is based on the German film “Die Farbe” which tells the H. P. Lovecraft horror story of “The Colour Out Of Space“.

Brought to Earth in a meteorite, this microscopic extraterrestrial life form slowly penetrates into the surrounding soil. In time, it begins to infect the local flora and fauna, causing all sorts of physical changes. The invader also causes severe mental aberrations in Terran life forms from the lowest insect level to humans.

Tiny bits of the life form (perhaps individual cells of a greater whole) slowly rise out of the earth, joining together to form the greater creature. The creature casts a unearthly color radiation that is not found within the normal human spectrum. (The movie directors chose to use a pinkish glow to represent the “colour”.) The eventual effects lead to victims crumbling into grey dust.

This handmade miniature attempts to show the alien life form as it begins to join together and rises out of the soil. The 25mm scale game miniature gives you a sense of scale. The base of the monster measures 1 inch (25 mm) in diameter.

This Lovecraftian horror can provide a true terror to confront your player characters in a Call of Cthulhuadventure. It can be used likewise in fantasy and science fiction scenarios as well.

Aerial Hunter Dungeon Monster 25-28mm Scale Miniature for Fantasy and Horror RPG Games
Filed under: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, 25-28 mm, Monsters, Scratchbuilt
Posted by: G R @ 9:48 am

As they explore the dark caverns, the daring adventurers sense a movement just beyond the reach of their torchlight. Expecting to see something at ground level, they do not immediately see the large creature silently drifting toward them along shadowy recesses of the cavern’s roof.

At first glance, it’s body resembles a large rock which provides the creature with near perfect camouflage against the rocky cavern walls.

But as the monster closes in on its intended prey, the lower area splits open revealing it’s real danger, a huge mouth rimmed with large fang-like teeth! Suddenly, a long whip-like tendril shoots out from the now gaping mouth.

This tentacle-like “tongue” is tipped with a poisonous sting. A successful strike injects a powerful toxin which quickly paralyzes the victim who then is grasped by the prehensile tongue and drawn into the monster’s maw.

The 25-28mm figure gives you an idea of scale of this floating horror.

This unique handmade miniature stands about 2-3/8 inches (60mm) tall. The base measures 1-1/2 inches (38 mm) in diameter. It would be an interesting monster to have appear in a variety of role-playing game scenarios including fantasy, horror and science fiction games.
