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.

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.

Well... got my PDF today.

Some stuff... meh. Other stuff I'm intrigued by.

There's encounter tables in the back, so I'm going to use those for determining any mini purchases (along with certain discounts).

Pledge manager in a few days apparently?

      Just ran across this. I’m not familiar with the company, but they seem pretty established in the historical line. Anyone have thoughts on these? The price per figure seems reasonable for good resin.
