Intrepid Explorers Prepare for Expedition to the Unkown


…aaaaaaand here’s the rest of them.

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)


Again, like the last batch, these are a mix of Copplestone Castings and Pulp Figures.

These chaps probably won’t see action for quite some time… ultimately I had planned to use them in Chaosium’s epic Call of Cthulhu campaign Beyond the Mountains of Madness. At the moment, however, we’re pretty still pretty stoked about the East Front campaign. I was hoping to rekindle the Realms of Cthulhu campaign at some point in the new year, but I kind of had a decade sprawling over-arching campaign mapped out that wended our intrepid heroes through a great big pile of published adventures I’ve collected up over the years…. There’s a couple in England, Montreal, and New Yorkin the early 20s. After that there’s (recently re-released) Masks of Nyarlathotep in the mid 20s (including a few side adventures from Terror Australis), The Lovecraft Country series fills out the rest of the decade and finally we get to Beyond the Mountains of Madness

It’ll probably take a bloody decade just to PLAY thorough all of those…!? Ah, maybe somewhere along the way we’ll end up with a TPK and I can just skip forward and run Beyond the Mounatains as an independent campaign…

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Turks… then back to T-34s, I swear…

(well… and maybe some more Pulp Adventure types…)

  4. Thanks all!

    Alex... how is it possible to own so many? or how is it possible I get so many finished...?

    For the former I don't have a lot of other expensive hobbies (or own a car) which eat up a lot of other peoples incomes, I'm a bit of a bargain hunter and have a house with a decent basement to store them all in.

    For the latter, it's all about time management. I don't have television or computer games or go out to the pub much... The average resident of Saskatchewan watches 19 hours of television each week... that's 19 hours more that I have to spend on hobby activities right there - every week!

    If only I could ignore the internet... I could totally get so much MORE done!

  5. Superb miniatures and ideal for a mountainous Cthulhu adventure. The snowier the weather the better - blizzards are good for obscuring the most horrifying of abominations until the last moment - muhahaha.... :)

    Sharing for sharing the Beyond the Mountains of Madness PDF, I'm checking it out right now.

    Great blog, please keep on posting and sharing,
