New endeavour today! I got this game quite a long ago and (to my shame) I've been playing it unpainted. Enough of that!
I haven't tried the new 2nd edition, but this one is absolutely recommendable. Quite replayable, it gives a lot of uncanny fun. Well, fun; you know. I mean creepy, terrifying experience that will drive you crazy and... ehm. Fun, as I was saying.
But I'm not talking about the game today; I've finally painted the minis! Hurrah! So here youhave them. First, the investigators:
|Kate Winthop & Michael McGlen|
|Gloria Goldberg & 'Ashcan' Pete|
|Jenny Barnes & Harvey Walters|
|Joe Diamond and Sister Mary|
But the monsters are the real deal here. Doing the bases was somehow tricky, buy I finally managed to find an acceptable solution.
So here you have the cultist and the cult leaders:
|Generic Yog Sothoth standard cult|
|The clothes sculpts were difficult for me to understand. I opted for some kind of Manila shawl, which looked exotic and mysterious, I thought it suited them|
|No budget for trousers, sorry|
|They can't stand water; kind of glorified Gremlins|
Finally, the Hounds of Tindalos:
|Certainly not the Baskerville ones, dear Watson.|
The quality of the minis is boardgame standard, which is not bad at all. The investigators are roughly 20 mm scale and the creatures maybe a little bit larger. They all fit in the game box (something I was concerned about once I got all the monsters on their bases), so I'm happy with the whole lot. Now I need to finally have a game with them painted!
It's a fantastic game IMO. Takes a while to setup, but it's definitely worth it. I'm not a fan of the latest edition, It's designed for the lazy millennials, who can't be arsed reading and need special effects to make something worthy of their time.ReplyDelete
Oldschool all the way!
Great paint up too Suber. Really nailed the tartan :)
Haha, true oldschool! You really need to have the time for a game, but it's totally worth of the experience. Thanks, glad you like it!Delete
Nice job dude, these look great!! I salute your attention to detail mate, the investigators are particularly cool :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks! The minis are nice for a boardgame, but they definitely look better when painted. Tiny but detailed, really enjoyable :)Delete
Really nice work! I've really enjoyed the second edition, and you can just port all this first edition stuff in.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I still have a good fistful of games with the first edition, I haven't really read anything about the second one. I'm afraid that, by the time I would get that painted, the fourth edition would be out on the market :DDelete
AWESOME work sir!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much, nice minis and recommended game!Delete
These look cracking you have been working hard on this one!ReplyDelete
The game is totally worth of full painted minis, I cannot wait to finally have a proper game!!Delete
Me encantan las minis!ReplyDelete
tiene que ser un juego muy divertido! :)
¡Gracias! El juego es una pasada. Es muy largo (entre que preparas y juegas se te van tranquilamente las cuatro o cinco horas), pero es inmersivo y te tiene completamente en tensión. Además de ser muy narrativo, pueden pasar cosas diferentes y cada partida tiene varios finales posibles. No conozco la 2ª edición, pero la primera por lo menos la recomiendo.Delete
Great work nice painting broReplyDelete
Thank you! Glad you like them :DDelete
Absolutely splendid work. Certainly the best work I've seen on these miniatures. Your mi-go and hounds of tindalos are especially wonderful. I hope this set of miniatures brings you a lot of pleasure and fun!ReplyDelete
Thank you! A real compliment coming from you. I had your own minis in mind during the whole process, your work on this game is the best reference I can think of, I really admire them!Delete
The figures look really good. We haven't played much of our Cthulhu themed games over here. The one issue I've had is with the games being near unplayable on a standard dining room table.ReplyDelete
Haha, I totally know what you mean! That's quite a regular issue for me too! :DDelete
I think I have this edition and I know how small they are. Fantastic work Suber! :)ReplyDelete
The investigators are tiny indeed, but enjoyable. The game is cool from the beginning to the end!Delete
Splendid looking models Suber!ReplyDelete
Thank you! The change of my usual subject has been fun! :)Delete
