Beware what lurks in the Mountains of Manfriends!!!

Next thing finished are the villain pieces for the game Mansions of Madness or "Mountains of Manfriends" as it is known to my gaming buddies. I made a tricky call with these guys. The game uses special bases that are functional in the game. You slide in a big cardboard chit that has the creatures stats and special abilities that you can see through little windows on the top and bottom. What's kind of neat is that you draw a random cultist or maniac and they have different stats and abilities from other ones. So the monsters in the same class have some individuality. So anyway, the sculpts are so so, I may use them in other games in a pinch, but I decided to just glue them onto their game bases instead of doing individual bases for them. 
 I realized after about the third cult guy that I had painted them to look like the "Cult of Michael Jackson's THRILLER" 

"Girl, but all the while, you hear a creature creepin' up behind. You're outta time....So Sayeth the KING OF POP!!!"

 "How big is our cult?...
 "...SOOOOO Biiiiiiig" 
 Sexy Witches...Not to be confused with regular witches. 
 Maniacs and zombies...the zombies are awful. 
 And the most dreaded of all the Lovecraftian Mythos...THE SHAMBLING COLON!!! 

 Hounds of Tindalos....they travel through dimensions at unnatural angles....TERRIFYING GEOMETRY!!! 
 Tequila Worm 
 Ya ever hear tell of a Shoggoth??!?!

 Some monkeys I painted...not part of the board game but if a Lovecraftian protagonist were to find out he was descended from them he would probably set himself on fire. 


  1. Nice paint jobs, but a few of the weird figures look like a bad meal at a Chinese restaurant. (Not the garbage though)

  2. They may not be the best minis ever but you've done a great job on them.
    Bins homemade ?

  3. I bought the bins off of Doctor Merkury. I think they came in Pulp Figures packs. Some of those packs would only give you 4 figures and then a piece of street furniture like a fire hydrant or a mailbox.

  4. Superb... I can smell the funk of 40,000 years form here! :)
