As I had mentioned earlier I’ve been reading a lot of Hellboy and BPRD lately. I also picked up the RPG/Sourcebook. I’ve also been on the look out for the minis that were sole by Steve Jackson Games. When they were initially realeased I remember then being absurdly expensive – the US price was quite a bit, but at the time, with the exchange rate, I remember seeing them for $35CAD!? For 6 minis!? I don’t think so…

I picked up a couple other sets off ebay a while back - Special Ops, Transhuman Space, and Dork Tower. I was a little wary about picking up the Hellboy minis as the Special Ops and Transhuman space minis were a little on the small side – closer to “true 25mm” than the beefier more modern “Herioc” 28mm stuff…

Anyway, a couple weeks ago I spotted a seller with both the hellboy heroes (and VILLAINS!) up for auction starting at $5 and reasonable shipping to Canada… so I got them…

Here’s Hellboy…

(you can’t complain about THIS one, Bob – it’s licensed product!)

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

Hellboy from Steve Jackson Games.

Oh think of the cross-over games we could play….

“So you’re telling me Mr. Carswell is the Creeper…?”

“Man, You guys are worse shots than ME!?”

“You’re right Jack, a man WOULD have to be some kind of fool to think we’re alone in this universe…”

“So what’s the deal with this swan… is it some kind of giant monstrous, flesh-eating demonic Swan…? No? What the hell am I dong here, then?”

“Well boys, sounds like you got a troll living under that overpass. Time for a game of Three Billy Goats Gruff. Ponch, you get to be the little billy goat.

“No I don’t know where the convention is… and this ain’t a costume… and hey, you in the back, aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper!?”

“How much further to this ‘Whinchester’ place?”

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Not sure… so much stuff polluting the workbench at the moment. I think it’s time for a clean-up and a fresh start.

I may finish up some of the other Hellboy figures… or not… 


  1. Scooby Do and the mad cricketer? But you just know that the fairground owner is the baddy.

  2. quite a change of pace from the previous post! ha ha
    Still, nicely done.

  3. West End Games Stormtrooper in there? Hellboy looks to be about right for whatever LotR is in scale. True-25mil IIRC?
