Gothic Horror miniatures. Where to get them?
« on: October 16, 2010, 08:43:56 AM »
Ok, a couple of you suggested a sticky for miniatures suitable for Gothic Horror games.

I'll start the list with the excellent West Wind Productions. A most comprehensive range.

I'll add the old Gothic Horror range from Citadel Miniatures:

Come up on ebay from time to time, I got a few extras I'll be looking to get rid of soon, most of them not on that release and a few very rare ones who had an unknown release.

Miniatures and bases (nice cobbles and Gothic Horror sets)

Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.

Not sure if it has been mentioned but the Mantic Games ghouls and zombies are rather good:

For gravestones, there's Mississinewa Miniatures. They make three terrific sets and sell them separately:

My web browser throws a fit when I try to access this link - is it me?

The out of production Dreamblade miniatures contain a few useful monsters.

Scenery-wise there's also UK-based Fantascene's excellent Gothic line, from which a pretty impressive cemetery could be constructed. 

NP Models (again UK-based) likewise produce some extremely well-done and evocative graveyard pieces, some at very affordable price too.

That's all for the moment...
