Gothic Horror Miniatures for The Mountains of Madness



Welcome to another round of my ongoing project to use Citadel's Gothic Horror range from the 1980's to supply the miniatures for use in Eldtritch Horror, the excellent Cthulhu game published by Fantasy Flight Games. I've already posted minis for the Core Game and for the Strange Remnants expansion. An now this week, I've got four of the investigators from the Mountains of Madness expansion...




Daisy Walker,   Wilson Richards,   Agnes Baker   and   Patricia Hathaway

First we have the Librarian, Daisy Walker. Her miniature is "The Adventuress" (1986) from the CC1 Gothic Horror Range. This is another sculpture with several variants, some with guns, some with purses, and some with guns and purses. Well, as anyone who has played Call of Cthulhu knows, your skill in Library Research is the most important ability that your character can have... if you don't know the Dewey Decimal System, you're never going to be able to find Von Juntz's Unaussprechlichen Kulten at the back of the stacks.




Next we have Wilson Richards, the Handyman. His miniature is the CC1 "Game Keeper" (1987). Why is Wilson wearing orange socks? No one knows and Wilson isn't talking.





Agnes Baker is a waitress in a diner. But in Eldtritch Horror, she is also the most magically talented character, with an uncanny ability to augment any spell she casts. Or as it says on her character card "I remember another life, one of sorcery and conquest". Hmm. Sounds like Conan the Barbarian. [Note to self: tip well when eating a diners].


Her miniature is the CC1 "Society Girl" (1988).




And finally, here's Patricia Hathaway, the Violinist. Her miniature is the CC1 1986 "Old Woman". 
A violinist? Really? Well, they say that music calms the savage beast. Good luck with your fiddle when the Shoggoth comes your way!




Thanks for looking!

  6. I dunno, Ms. Hathaway might be surprisingly effective, with the right instrument. Can she perhaps acquire a soul-eating violin made of human bone?
