Anyone have any idea of the size of the Bronze Dragon? 

 

I am tempted, but the size could be a deciding factor.

So Reaper decided to use the Term "Dark Young". A little surprising since the shape and name of the "dark young" was a modern creation of authors who's works might have not yet entered Public Domain, as opposed to Cthulhu, Gugs and Deep Ones. The shape of the monster specifically was a creation of Bloch in 1951, while naming them 'dark young' was done by Chaosium when they were bulking up their bestiary.

 

Or people like me with 5 year old daughters that think the Cthulhu style minis are fun to paint. Does that make me a bad dad?

Only if you named them Lavinia or Asenath.

    @Stephen: 3 of the 5 cultists are, kind of surprisingly, either female or intentionally androgynous. :)

For Shub, that is not surprising at all.

BY CROM!!!! That barbarian in the Heroes II set is amazing - anyone know who sculpted that?

 

Also, am I correct that I can order the Heroes II set individually without pledging for the whole core set (I have pledged $1 so I can get the add-ons I want, so far the Frost Giants and this...)?

Cthulhu Wars pulled in $1.4M and the next-highest funded Cthulhu project was 7th edition Call of Cthulhu at $1/2M. So there's a lot of money in it -- yet I can't think of any company which makes a line plastic figures for the Mythos, outside of boardgame miniatures. (RAFM has metal miniatures, and Fenris has resin.) Fantasy Flight Games even had a prepainted miniatures line of Cthulhu figures whose total cost was maybe $1000 for a boardgame and expansions costing $350. I've managed to post on two additional Cthulhu forums thanks to this expansion and Shubby.

I know antimatter games makes some figures, at least a really pricey temple piece. Hope someone more into this mythos than me is spreading the word to like-minded people.

      I'm late on this one, it was hidden in a drawer...

      Greetings!
       
      I recently bought some Greenstuffworld colourshift paints & eagerly wanting to try them out, I searched through my (huge) Bones backlog for a suitably metallic mini. I grabbed the fantastically ominious Iron Golem from the Bones 4 Stoneskull Expansion & got to work.
       
      The blue areas are the colourshift paint, all the other areas are standard paints.
       
      I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's not as easy to see the effect on these pics as it is with your own eyes but you can make it out. There's no shading or highlighting on these areas apart from some silver to pick out the rivets & sharp edges on the arm plates.
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Thief : Blue Ink base + black ink to show details  (least happy) 
      Cleric : angelic ghost or spiritual weapon spell.  Yellow ink + TMM 
      Ranger: painted by minispawn.  ill take it. Makes a great ghost 
      Wizard: nulin Oil + higlights of green ink  (fav) 
      Fighter: I only painted the base. (represents an invisible PC pretty well.) 
       
      I should talk to @Doug Sundseth about this again, since he is teaching a class on it, probably today.  Not sure im happy with the set.

      Per Izzy,
      If you picked up either of the Art Books in the Bones III and IV kick-starters and would like to get them autographed, be sure to bring them with you to ReaperCon. Izzy will be signing them when time allows.
