Hi all.  I wondered how many of you knew about Artizan's Thrilling Tales range which would make great miniatures for Tannhausr http://www.artizandesigns.com/list.php?man=12&cat=121&page=1.  I ordered all of the Sturm Battalion Zorn recently, before I came across Tannhauser at my FLGS.

Also the original Heartbreaker Mutant Chronicle Trencher miniatures would work well as a British faction.

Post FFG announces Arkham Horror figures Reply with quote
FFG has announced a line of prepainted Arkham Horror investigator miniatures.





These could make great customs, or scenario characters.

The FFG announcement:

FFG is proud to announce finely detailed, pre-painted plastic Investigators! Our first wave is the tenacious professor, Harvey Walters, and the jet-setting Jenny Barnes. Both of these Investigators see a lot of table time, and the new expertly-sculpted, pre-painted plastic figures will let you immerse yourself in the madness like never before. Every Investigator, from Arkham Horror all the way through Innsmouth will make their appearance in superb detail. From “Ashcan” Pete’s guitar and four-legged travel companion to Michael McGlen’s cigar and tommy gun, every figure is ripped straight from the art you have come to know and love.

Cast in 32mm (compares to 28mm "heroic" scale) 3to showcase the fine details, these hand-painted figures give new life to ancient horror. Over the coming months, the Mythos will reveal the next waves of Investigators. Keep your wits about you, and your eyes sharp for the coming assistance. Each pack of 2 investigators will retail for $12.95.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Arkham Horror Investigator Packs.

Q: Why the price?
A: Miniatures are very expensive to produce in niche quantities. A similar single figure of metal (pewter) would retail for about $9.95. Instead we are excited to provide 2 high-quality detailed figures, masterfully painted, for $12.95. The eldritch ones expected nothing less.

Q: Why only 2 per box?
A: Placing more figures in a box would have caused the product to become prohibitively expensive. 8 Figures, for example, would have retailed for about $45 with customers being forced to purchase a bundle of 8 figures rather than the figures of choice. We expect to see retailers selling "bundles" of these figures at competitive prices, which will provide the solution for customers looking for larger sets.

Q: Doesn't the extra packaging (2 figures as opposed to more) add a lot to the retail price?
A: No, this is near negligible. FFG will print the same packaging for all the investigator packs in volume for cost efficiency, which we can pass along to the customer.

Q: What is the size of the box?
A: The box is about the size of a "Wings of War" miniature airplane box.

Q: How often will these investigators packs come out?
A: Once the first pack hits the street, the packs should be coming out at a rate of about one per month until all the investigators are out.

Q: Can I use these for my "Call of Cthulhu" role playing game?
A: For that question, I'm going to have to ask you to make a sanity check...

I was not aware of this, but I really like them!

I used to play the Chaosium original edition of Arkham Horror, but it got lost at some point in moving around.

The new version has a lot of cards I hear...
