For those of you who didn't see the banners/leaflets/greens at Salute, we've got a little bit of news that we've been trying to keep quiet about for the last six months:

CTHULHU WARS – a board game by Green Eye Games

Dallas,TX / News Outlet / 4/17/2013 ---  Legendary game designer Sandy Petersen, has teamed up with accomplished game professionals Robert M. Atkins and Richard Luong to form the board game company, Green Eye Games.  They are extremely excited to launch their first game Cthulhu Wars, debuting later this year.

More than a half-century ago, H.P. Lovecraft changed the face of the horror genre forever, influencing science fiction, horror, film, games and mystery writers for generations.  His most famous creation is the Cthulhu Mythos, a cosmos filled with alien and inner dimensional horrors. Inspired by this work, Sandy got his start in gaming by developing the tabletop roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu.  This seminal game has proved a cult success over the years.  News of Sandy's first board game in 20 years has fans across the globe excited, including the Founders at the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society, who noted "The H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society is thrilled that our friend Sandy Petersen is developing a new Lovecraft-inspired game."

On what makes this game unique, Sandy remarks, "The marketplace today has many board games featuring the Cthulhu Mythos.  In most such games you strive to avert the impending catastrophe.  But in Cthulhu Wars you ARE the catastrophe!"  Cthulhu Wars is a competitive strategy game in which the players control one of four unique factions, which produce cultists and monsters to build mystic gates, and awaken Great Old Ones. 

Being a fan of the Mythos-based figures sold by Fenris Games, Sandy reached out to get them involved with sculpting the figures for this ambitious title. Ian Brumby explains his excitement upon getting the call, "As a small manufacturer one can only dream about the big projects, the hall-of-fame products that the giants of the games industry seem to produce on a regular basis.  So when you open your email of a morning and find Sandy Petersen asking if you'd like to work with him on his latest project, it's like all of your birthdays have come at once."

At Fenris, Ian has spent the past 5 years building a range of miniatures and gaming aids that inspire a wide audience online and in games rooms around the world. "The opportunity to work with one of the biggest names in gaming history to produce truly iconic models is something I had, indeed, only ever dreamed about before, and that same inspiration has driven all of the sculptors I've been lucky enough to work with on Cthulhu Wars. Sandy's enthusiasm for his subject has been infused into every page and every Cthulhu-related gaming experience there is, and we hope this shows through in the work we've contributed so far." 

Each copy of Cthulhu Wars comes with 80 high-quality figures, ranging from 28mm to 200mm – the same size as used in D&D or Call of Cthulhu – and are suitable for use in any game of the same scale – such as Descent or Zombicide. We think the figures created by Fenris Games are worth the price alone.

80 minis in the box, all plastic. Metal and resin versions somewhere down the line, once the KS is well out of the way. It may actually work out about the same price to buy the boxed set as to buy the standalone Cthulhu, depending on final costs.....

 :metoo: Never read the books, but it has clearly inspired some great games and miniatures.

all the best with this project. The big cthulhu looks amazing, and the tentacly thing too.

<--------- Skiffly here is always on the lookout for fellow tentacled creatures to be friends with.
: Re: Cthulhu Wars
: geronimo April 25, 2013, 04:45:07 PM
Cthulhu Wars will contain over 60 plastic miniatures scaled to suit 28mm gaming (but primarily intended to play the boardgame!) divided over four factions, each led by one of the Great Old Ones.

Every faction gets a handful of cultist models...and here's Paul Sanderson's painted version of the mini in question....

Original plan was 80 (including summoning gates) in the standard box, I think latest plan is to have the gates as card counters with the sculpted versions as a stretch goal, to keep base costs down. Still, 80 is "over 60" , right ;)

First test cast of the Big C himself, centrepiece model for the boardgame and just one of the four Great Old Ones you can play the game as. Concept by Richard Luong, sculpt by Snuurg, all I did was the moulding and casting and sculptor wrangling ;) Over 200mm tall, and a much better playing piece than an old shoe or a flatiron....

Good lord, this all looks *incredible!* The Cthulhu is fantastic, and the Dark Young are excellent... all properly horrifying. The Nyarlathotep is a really great piece - twisted and imaginative, a proper nightmare! ...I'm gonna need to get my hands on a copy of this, if only for the painting...

Beautiful work!

Top Trumps time: does Cthulu beat Smaug?
He is less prone to LAIM (Lucky Arrow Induced Mortality), but then again, he spends even more time asleep than Smaug.

...and his name has even more pronunciation issues.

Latest finished model, Hastur for the Yellow Sign faction:

(http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j4/geronimojones/hasturpromo_zps1a47c936.jpg)

EU tax issue is partially resolved:

"Good news for our European backers!

After consulting with several logistics companies, we are happy to announce that we will be able to help you save money on import taxes. Because pledges on Kickstarter are explicitly for the "funding of a project in a pre-retail environment," we can ship our products to you with a declared commercial value equal to the core manufacturing cost, rather than your full pledge amount. This should save a lot on any VAT taxes which may apply. We are also exploring other options which could potentially provide additional savings, including manufacturing and distribution from within the E.U."

- and we're still working on importing/redistributing to alleviate more of those costs.

Haven't updated this for a bit, sorry.

Full pledge manager thing went up yesterday. 3 days to go, still time to grab a bargain.

Best options (depending on budget) are either Book of Eibon or De Vermis Mysteriis. New secret stretch goal just added last night - brand new Great Old One designed by Sandy exclusively for the KS.

In spite of my misgivings about the kickstarter concept, i hhave finally surrendered in the face of the sheer quantity of amazing miniatures on offer and gone in at cultist level. did not check the exact details of what I am getting, but it seems to be a near endless supply of orrible tentacled beasties. Game mechanics looks interesting and well thought out too.

I haven't as ally been following this as I'm not a Cthulhu fan but if I wanted to buy an expansion (if) would I pledge at the $11 level and then add on the expansion amount plus shipping after that?

Expansions can only be added from Cultist level and above, sorry. Same deal for the big GOO models.

But, pledge $11, add another $25 for the HPL model, for instance. Or T shirts, etc.

Or just make a payment to someone already in to up their pledge.

Pledge manager is live, if you backed you should have had an email by now. I believe it's open for another 27 days and allows you to add to your pledge and even increase your backer level if you've freed up some more funds....

Everything posted here is a fantastic sculpt on its own, all together they are mind boggling.  However as I am not a cthulumaniac and was broke, I did not get in on this ks.  I do have an interest in this one, and hope I can get her by herself.

Yup, he will. Asenath (the 54mm Kev sculpt above) is a KS exclusive - on other forums people have been persuading CW pledgers to add cash via the pledge manager to secure them a model.

Yep, 75mm tall but in 54mm scale from what I've read (her hair is standing straight up). So she should fit in well with Gypsy...

Oooh, that's big but workable. I so hope you'll sell these figures separately once the game is out! These are some of the best figures I've ever seen.

It's a flute. It's a Servitor of the Outer Gods. He plays endlessly for Azathoth:

The ancient legends of Ultimate Chaos, at whose center sprawls the blind idiot god Azathoth, Lord of All Things, encircled by his flopping horde of mindless and amorphous dancers, and lulled by the thin monotonous piping of a demonic flute held in nameless paws.
