The Investigators of Mansions of Madness

A couple weeks ago, I rolled around in the shame and disgrace of shoddily painting all the monsters from Mansions of Madness 2nd edition, the Cthulhu-themed dungeon crawl game. This week, in order to redeem myself (in my own eyes at least, and the eyes of Crom), I present painted versions of all the investigators from the Core Set and all 3 expansions: Recurring Nightmares, Suppressed Memories and Beyond the Threshold

These are 26 investigators in total. As usual, I have discarded the shoddy plastic miniatures that FFG provided in favour of metal substitutes. Where possible, I've used the beautiful Gothic Horror miniatures that Citadel produced in the 1980's when it had the license for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game. To fill in some gaps, I use miniatures from Copplestone Castings, RAFM, Foundry and Hasselfree Miniatures. 

Loyal followers will notice that some of these miniatures have already appeared in my posts about Eldritch Horror. That's because FFG always uses the same stable of characters in all their Cthulhu boardgames. But there are a few new faces, like Agatha Crane, Father Mateo or Carson Sinclair.

Thanks for looking!


  1. oh, The Old One!
    Fantastic group of characters!
    Ancient ones aproved ;)

  2. Splendid characters...and presentation, excellent!

  3. I think you have a real knack for picking models that match the art work - lovely vibrant colours as well.

  4. Seeing them all is a wonder! Wow, really cool job!

  5. A very nice collection all perfectly painted. You have done a wonderful job. Great stuff!

  6. Hope you're proud of these mate? You should be. A fantastic cast of characters that would also fit perfectly in most Pulp gaming settings too.

  7. Fantastic! They're all great, but I have a soft spot for Harvey and Monterey.

  8. Thanks very much for the comments, everyone! It is nice to be reminded that it's hard getting a collection like this together -- so I appreciate your appreciation.
