Miniatures Companies

posted Nov 08, 2012 00:25:02 by ChrisBirch
We'd like to recommend manufacturers of cool weird war figures, some of whom appear in our battle reports and the Forest of Fear web-comic). There's plenty out there that are appropriate for Achtung! Cthulhu games. Some of these companies also produce rule sets for normal WW2 battles as well as weird war twists and we encourage you to check them out - it's a great period to play in and one can never have enough ;-)

Please feel free to add to the list - they can be great makes of normal troops and vehicles or simply cool weird war ranges.

You surprise me sir. No Dust miniatures mentioned?

Granted, some of the infantry and all the vehicles are a bit too weird and wonderful... but the basic infantry squads are perfect (if a little taller than everything else you've mentioned). Plus you've got the extra boards to work with as well.

Tamiya do some nice 1:48 scale vehicles that go with the Dust range and there's 1-48 Combat (http://1-48combat.com/) who are starting a 1:48 scale WW2 skirmish game with some very nice models. Scarab Miniatures (http://scarabminiatures.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=32) also ave some nice metal 1:48 scale figures that would work with Dust to extend the range a bit and remove the more sci-fi elements.

For 28mm, there are also these companies that do WW2 or mythos creatures:

Black Ball Games (http://blackballgames.bigcartel.com/category/ae-wwii)
Black Cat Bases (http://blackcatbases.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=437_612)
Plastic Soldier Company (http://theplasticsoldiercompany.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_2_43) has some Russians.
RAFM (http://www.rafm.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=RAF&Category_Code=COCM)
Tengu Models (http://www.tengumodels.co.uk/userimages/Cthulhu%282809018%29.htm)

Kurasan (http://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/little-carinthia.html) also do a range of 15mm mythos creatures.

Obviously the monsters aren't as nice as yours are looking in the digital sculpts ;)

I guess for creatures and boards there's also the Mansions of Madness and Arkham Asylum miniatures from Fantasy Flight Games. Most of the investigators are a bit too early for WW2, but the monsters are all useful; though they will need rebasing.

Heroscape and the various ranges of Clix have some useful models that would scale well

The Cthulhu Wars Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1816687860/cthulhu-wars) looks like it will have some very useful miniatures for One War. It's just a shame that I can't quite afford to go in on this just yet. It looks like one to keep an eye on though!

Found this on RPGNow, look like it may be handy. http://www.rpgnow.com/product/117806/The-Nazi-Occult

Description:
In the dark dungeons beneath Nazi Germany, teams of occult experts delved into ancient and forbidden lore, searching for lost secrets of power. This book tells the complete history of the Nazi occult programs, from their quests for the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny, and the Holy Grail, through their experiments with lycanthrope and zero-point energy.

It also includes information on the shadow war fought in the dying days of the Reich as the Nazis deployed strange flying saucers that battled to save their final stronghold in the Antarctic. For years, the Allied governments worked to keep this information from reaching the public, and sought to discredit those few who dared to seek the truth. Now, using a combination of photography and artwork reconstructions, the true story of the most secret battles of World War II can finally be told.
Contents

The Secret of the Runes
The Thule Bruderschaft
The Ahnenerbe
Tibet and the Secret Kingdom
The Ark, the Spear, and the Grail
