Hellboy figure in 28mm
« on: November 23, 2022, 02:53:48 AM »
Been asked many times before, but I would like a 28mm Hellboy for Weird World War 2 using Xenos Rampant.

Something that would fit in with my Bolt Action figures.

Suggestions welcomed.

This guy from Reaper should do the trick (he'll be big, but that's in the script, I think):

It comes with alternate head and hands, which is why you probably missed it (I only know it's there because I have the figure).

Mantic has the Hellboy game, so that could be worth a look. They are on the big side, and I'm not sure if they're available individually, but worth a quick check

Pictures of it are gone now, but I repainted an early Heroclix Hellboy and that worked well. They also had a Lobster Johnson.

This is the base model:

Thanks all. Any commentary on how big the Mantic Hellboy is?

There are hundreds of Hellboy miniatures on Etsy, virtually every supplier of STLs has done a knock off version. Any decent printing service on there will size the figure exactly as you want.

Sure, but all are of unknown quality. If you have a recommendation happy to take it on, otherwise I prefer to stick with known manufacturers.

I couldn't find any comparisons, but this image shows size in mm at least:

The figures are all really nice and if you are inclined to play board games, the game was pretty fun too.

Giger has just started a thread around the Hellboy board game expansions that has some pictures - https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=139176.msg1471660

May be worth asking him about figure sizes

There is/was an Official Hellboy set from Steve Jackson Games.


I have the Hellboy game from Mantic, but do not have a finished Hellboy figure.

However here is a photograph of Johan Kraus and the ubiquitous William Killian (Crooked Dice) and Brian from The Walking Dead:All Out War for scale.
