British Studio Crooked Dice specialise in mixing old sci-fi movies with wargaming.
It’s a one-man operation, and the result is cool looking skirmish miniatures that might remind you of shows you’ve seen on TV. There are Cybermen-like models, but aren’t, or generic ape-men minis not connected to any series of movies or superspies with either fembots or cat stroking and entirely original mastermind villains.
So, when a classic cult property is out of copyright Crooked Dice took the chance to go big.
Just before Christmas, Karl Perrotton announced this Great Cthulhu.
The “mini” is sculpted by Andrew May. May is a popular mini sculptor, runs Meridian Miniatures and who’s last Kickstarter took well over £1,500 for a traditional bugbear model for tabletop battle mats.
This Cthulhu is 90mm tall. That’s about three times as tall as a typical adventurer mini but whether that’s tall enough to satisfy your Cthulhu needs is another matter. At least, though, it’ll fit on your square grid for that scene where the D&D Warlock annoys his patron that one final time.
