Sandy Petersen's Cthulhu Mythos for 5e

Recommended Posts

I have the Pathdinder one and love the quality!

 

I don't even play Pathfinder. Maybe I should try and sell it to pay for this one...

I pledged for the Pathfinder version and all of the minis, until a financial crisis hit and I dropped it completely. Now I'm playing 5e, and Reaper has a growing selection of nicely scaled Mythos figures . . . I might just go in for the book . . . or maybe even just the PDF . . .

You can also buy the miniatures from Cthulhu Wars. Prices are pretty darn good. I've asked how much shipping was for the mini's.

This one seems to be doing fairly well. Anyone else as excited as I am?

Eh, I'd be more excited if they replied to my message asking how much shipping would be for just a miniatures purchase. I'm not too keen on their lack of responsiveness. And I've asked TWICE. <_<

 

If you could ask in the comments how I can find out shipping for a miniatures purchase (then post the reply here), I'd appreciate it. I suspect I can make a $1 pledge and buy the miniatures through the PM, but would like to have an actual answer. No, I'm not going to make a pledge when they should be answering questions I sent through the PM. TWICE. :;,;:

 

Thanks.

I asked that question for you. Let's see how long it takes before I get an answer :)

Edit: No answer as of yet; though, to be honest, I don't really expect an answer.

So, 2 days later, and Arthur Petersen finally replied

 

"So, first, there is no "minis" only pledge level. If there were, it would be listed on the right with all the other pledge levels.

All the minis on this KS, are ADD-ONS to any pledge level shown on the KS page (note the PDF only pledge is restricted from any shipped add-ons, including minis).

I'll post an update about the minis today to clarify everything perhaps."

From the update:

 

Q: Is there a minis only pledge?

A: No - you have to get one of the pledges with the book itself, then add on the minis to it. 

 

Q: Will they be sold later, after the Kickstarter?

A: Almost certainly. That's why we put the "regular" price for each one. Though even this price may go up, we're not entirely sure of some things yet, but the hope is to get them into regular distribution channels.

 

Q: How much will shipping be for the minis?

A: We are still working on this, but it shouldn't be too much per mini. If possible, we will set up in the pledge manager a shipping discount if you are buying a large amount of minis. Lots of the shipping data is simply still being constructed, to be honest. When the pledge manager goes live (about 2 weeks after the campaign is over - roughly when the actual money comes in from the KS), we should have the shipping numbers for the miniatures. 

 

Still haven't painted my CW miniatures, so I guess I can wait! :;,;:

Nice WIP!

 

I have some CW tutorials in my BGG profile: https://boardgamegeek.com/user/Sam and Max

 

Of the CW miniatures, the Mi-Go stand out as not being the right scale. They're supposed to be human-sized, but the CW ones are noticeably larger than the cultists. Some mythos monsters are huge, so most mythos miniatures are smaller than "actual" size. CW figures are mounted on cobblestone bases, which make them taller and stand out from other miniatures. I can't find any companies that make similar bases.

I need to think about which reaper minis I have cthulu, shub, dagon, mythos set, will have, nyarlathotep (or reasonable facsimile,  eg, goremaw=dhol).and what to prioritize. No more cultists for me, though.

      This is an unusual looking concept:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tabulagames/volfyirion
       
      It's a modestly priced deck building card game (€9) that has an optional dragon which costs €18 by itself. Combined it is €25 (with a few €22 early birds left).

      It's a really interesting looking dragon.

      Mini selection is a little confusing and I’m unsure if individual minis can be ordered separately... but I’m pretty sure I saw Dastardly and Muttley in there along with Penelope Pitstop, so this has my attention.
       
      Plus giant mutant ants and scorpions. Damn dirty apes on horseback. Motorcycle gangs and a cast of dozens.

      About
      Hi everyone.

      Welcome to our 2nd project. The Meatwalker 28mm scale creature and rider.

      This miniature was sculpted by Johan Tieldow and has been master cast by Lancaster Castings in resin. It will also be cast in metal by Macrocosm Miniatures.

      We are looking to get £250 to put this into full production. Its a big miniature and has so much character to it.
      Meat Walker Painted By David Stafford  We are offering this miniature in High quality resin and metal (see reward levels).

      Supplied with a 50mm round base (as seen in the pictures).

      It is a multipart miniature and requires assembly and painting (and pinning for the metal version).

      Suitable for a variety of different wargames and table top roleplay games, this would look great on the battlefield or in a dungeon somewhere. 

      If we hit our funding for the production moulding of these we will look at getting some alternate heads, arms and riders made. This would delay the fulfilment on these alternative versions only.
      Alternate Sculpt Ideas  And we feel a dwarf alternative for the pilot would be a good option too.
      Alternate Driver Goals!
      £1500 - More Options! 2 more versions will become available with alternative goblin pilots and troll arms. These will become options for you to add to your pledge.

      £2000 - Dwarven Pilots! We will do a set of 3 Dwarven Pilots for you to add to your collection. You will be able to order the pilot individually to replace the Goblin Pilot. 


      Add Ons (extra Trolls!)

      If you would like more than one Troll and rider then you can get 2 for £40.
      Or 3 for £50. Postage is free for the additional sculpts. For metal extras see the reward level.
      If we unlock extra parts we will give you the option of which trolls to choose.

      About
      The Nomad Caravan.
      Welcome to the latest Blind Beggar Miniatures Kickstarter campaign: The Nomad Caravan.
      This campaign will, if successful, see the production of a 28mm heroic scale Nomad Caravan cast in white metal, representing either a Merchant and his attendants and guards or a travelling Nomad family during migration.
       The master castings for this have already been made, this campaign is purely to fund the production moulding of the Nomad Caravan as a set.
      When the Caravan goes into production it will consist of eight miniatures representing the Nomad group and their accompanying pack animals, but during this campaign there will be an additional miniature added to the group who will not be part of the production pack as that particular miniature will eventually be joining a different set entirely.
      The eight figures that will be going into the production mould as part of the Caravan set...
      The extra miniature (previously part of the 'Bounty Hunters' set) who will added to The Caravan for the duration of this campaign as a FREE bonus miniature...
       ..
       Expand the Caravan...
      There are a few Packs in the Blind Beggar range that would work well in conjunction with the Nomad Caravan.
      Take a look at the optional Packs below and see if you wish to increase the size of your Nomad Caravan.
      If anything takes your fancy, just work out how many extra Packs that you want to add to your Caravan and select the appropriate Pledge Level on the right
      There will be a space on the survey when it is sent out to let me know what you have added for.
      For enlarging the Pack Train Expand with an extra merchant. Just add loads to the Porters. They make excellent Pilgrims. The original Noif Herder and his Dogs Barnacle Ben.
       There are only a small number of castings of Barnacle Ben, the Scaled Warrior, available at the moment so I have created a Pledge Level with limited numbers where he is also available to be added as he makes a great Caravan guard for the larger caravans that can afford to employ him!
      The ultimate Caravan Guard!
