I'm running a Cthulhu game in 2 weeks and I need to come up with a bunch of cheap FEMALE minis fast.  I have no problem finding male figures in suits to use for a 1920's game.  It's suitable female adventurers in normal clothing that are in short supply. 

 

I'm looking at clix on ebay, since they run about a buck apiece and I found a vendor who mails asap so I'll have time to work on them if they need modding before the game.  What I need help with is identifying female characters.  I just don't know what names to be searching for.  I need ladies in dresses.  

 

Also, anything cheap out there that passes for a shoggoth? Besides the one Reaper makes? 

 

Help me, hivemind, you're my only hope.

Erf. Buncha cheap female figures in 1920s street clothes. Don't ask much, dooya?

Go to Troll and Toad (or other miniatures retailer of your choice; I use T&T because they're fast, dependable, and cheap) and go to ALL HEROCLIX SINGLES, and scroll down. It will take you a while. If you are prepared to mod them clotheswise, there are a great many females available inexpensively, and they ship quick. They DO have Lois Lane and some other female civilians, as well, but I have no idea how many or how cheap at the moment.

I do not link due to board rules, but I've done plenty of business with them, and mutilated many of their Clix.

EDIT: Go there and look for Lois Lane. Most of her variants have knee length skirts, and sell for half a buck to a buck or so. Load up on those, and use arm and head switches and palette swaps to create entire gynospheres, so to speak.

That it what I have been doing, and random luck has been pretty... random.

Lois Lane, gotcha.  I suppose a little putty will fix the skirt length. Otherwise she looks ok.

 Also "SHIELD Agent, female", "Maria Hill", and "Lana Lang"... Can't speak to the prices, but they'll be wearing knee-length skirts and jackets or vests.

 

I've got two Clix that might work. Gimme a few days to poke at em, I'll see what I can do.

 

 Ack. Scratch that. Simple Green ate their face. (For Science!)

So, I found Betty Brant, Pepper Potts, Nurse, Harleen Quinzel, Barbara Gordon, Karen Page, Triplicate Girl, Lana Lang, and Jane Foster.  That ought to populate the game map sufficiently.

      Before the known ages, the ancient gods, who were traveling through time and space, between galaxies and systems, between planets and moons, finally reached this small blue planet and its light gray moon. Millions of years ago, searching for the force on the dark side of this moon, they found the crystals that emitted enormous energy.
       
      They took it with them and returned to the blue planet. With the use of the power from other dimensions they try to warp the crystal and use it for their own dark plans.
      It quickly turned out that the crystal emitted too much power, a power that did not harmonize with the forces of the Ancient One. The symbiosis caused conflict and damage to the ancients. The warped crystal had been abandoned by them here... and for millions of years, it had lain, covered by layers of earth and sand in the darkness and silence...

      Hi.
      Greetings from Andrzej (Ater), Jakub (MiniaturesArtTeam), and Pawel  (PJG_sculptor). For some time we were working together on something on the side which finally became a big miniature project. We plan to put it together in a board-battle game!
       
      But let's take small steps and start gently. In our first project, we want to offer you some miniatures from the world which were shown to us in the dreams by one guy, who calls himself Cthulhu (we know... it is quite weird, but the dreams were really cool).
       
      Inspired by these visions, we create a new universe in the dark, steampunk/dieselpunk climate. Now we want to show you our project and we cordially invite you not only to participate in the project itself but also to create it. Please, share your thoughts and opinions with us! Please come closer, sit down and hear a story about the Crystocracy.

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
       
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.

      Project funded in less than a half hour, and has already attained the first stretch goal.

      Here's my version of Reaper's Dark Young for all you Cthulhu fans out there, though for me it is a Portal of Despair from my Swampstalkers army :)
