Cthulhu Fhtagn!
« on: October 20, 2007, 08:32:59 PM »
The only god , the Great Cthulhu, wants see us doing something for him, painting some teams and praising the Old Ones!!!

The final round of the first season of the league (round 10) will be a bonus one.

- paint a cthulhu-related team of the humans and receive 10 bonus points!

- paint a monster team and receive 20 points!

- paint a monster team lead by Cthulhu (model sculpted by Bob Murch) himself and receive 30 points!

The monsters should be really Cthulhu ones, see the RAFM/Grenadier Call of Cthulhu range.

And there is only one model of Great Cthulhu that would get bonus points for you, the only true lead Cthulhu sculpted by Bob Murch:



Cthulhu fhtagn, Cthulhu fhtagn! Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl!!!!

get painting  :mrgreen:

Hi,

Sprit Games in Burton on Trent, have the RAFM Cthulhu range.

http://www.spiritgames.co.uk

I have always found them great to deal with, and the shipping outside UK is very fast as well  :mrgreen:

Thanks.

I'm off to SELWG tomorrow. EM4 carry the ex-Grenadier Dunwich Detectives range - does this qualify as Cthulhu? (You can see how much I know about this genre!  :mrgreen: )

If so, I'll pick a few up and get painting!  :wink:

Okay - that's it then. I know where to get some rather tasty figures... :)

Unfortunately though, I've just found out that the SELWG show is cancelled - for anyone that was going along... Asbestos in the roof or something.

I'll post a note in another thread, just in case anyone else in the London area was planning on going along and hadn't noticed that it has been cancelled.

What a pity - it's usually a great show.  :cry:

Gawd! Have you seen the price tag on the Bob Murch Cthulu!?!

Prof - for the human Cthulu teams, is it allowed to use other figures instead of RAFM?  (eg. Blue Moon or Copplestone?)

I think also some Pulp Figures von Bob Murch and some of the Artizan Designs Thrilling Tales should work as Human Investigators.

Actually RAFM would be the best choice but yes, whatever, Copplestone, Artizan, Pulp figures etc. but they should look like an investigator team (or anything like this). No big game hunters or Tibetan riders with  the label "Chtuhlu riders", please   :mrgreen:

I bought it way back, when it first came out - around 1991 - and it cost me £30 then - so if you buy it direct from Canada, it's probably the same price, or cheaper - and well worth it.

It is slumbering in my lead mountain - assembled, primed , base coated and washed - just ready for the finishing touches..... like it has been for the last 7 years......
Oh the shame of unfinished projects.........

This is as close as I'm going to able to get then! I have some investigators I got as a job-lot that I still haven't painted. I'll see if I can find them in the mountain....
