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:

I'm in for the $100 level, but I'm not interested in the baby-sized expansion.  I mean, what am I going to do, set up a crib to store the game in?   "Oh, you have a baby?  What's their name?

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 e

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.

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.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers!

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
