Cthulhu: Death May Die

Recommended Posts

Main problem with higher quality miniatures is that boardgamers won't pay for them, and, as an entirity, have more money than miniature enthusiasts.

 

However, of course, that doesn't mean you can't buy high quality miniatures separately from their rulesets, or find a company that offers both. Slumbering Oblivion has both miniatures and an upcoming game, but the miniatures are $12+ apiece, far more than a boardgamer will pay. Call of Cthulhu RPG and Strange Aeons miniature skirmish games let you supply your own miniatures. But Cthulhu Wars with resin Fenris miniatures? I don't want to know how much that would cost! ::o:

Baby for scale:

If I buy this I'm going to keep it hidden, paint it when noone is around, and then volunteer to DM the next time either of my groups finishes our adventures... and lead up to a big boss fight at the end, lean over and pull this out of a box and (gently) slam it on the table.

 

Or maybe take the time to build a gaming table with a trap door and an elevator to have him rise up... and toss some dry ice in there with him...1

There's a youtube video of that humorously large Cthulhu and lots of other miniatures too here:

I wish the big Cthulhu didn't have all those sucker pods things all over its back and butt.  See 52 seconds in.  Reminds me of Zombicide: Invader. 

 

There also appears to be a more reasonably-sized Cthulhu visible at 20 seconds in.

Wow! That baby is tiny!

Assuming the mini is 32-35mm, the baby can't be more than 25mm.

Really, the paint job on the baby's clothes are really astonishing, although I think some of the shadows and the general feel for the baby's hair aren't quite right - it feels like there's barely any hair at all.  I think the painter should try returning to that area and giving it another pass.

At last a properly scaled cthulhu! I have to have it. IA IA and all that.

 

 

 

....I wonder what that "miniature" will do to shipping costs.

comment removed because incorrect.

 

Happy the base game is 100.  Expected it to be more.

 

Unhappy that the big Cthulhu exclusive gameplay is limited to SOME people and not to be shared.  I don't need the novelty-sized Cthulhu but would like the game components.

Cant say I'm not disappointed. Now they have  exclusives inside their own projects. I'm okay not getting the figure, but I would want the gaming materials. Sell me the gaming materials please.

      I checked out the Scooby Doo cooperative game play looks like something fun to play with the kids (since he will probably be 10 when it delivers )

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.
