I fear that I am too late for my friend...he sits gibbering in the corner as I hastily jot these notes. I know all to well that I am holding onto my own sanity by a thread. All I can say is Beware!!!
I'd like to comment on a few things that might not be obvious.
1)The coloring of the idols in no way resembles the official photo that Fantasy Flight Games uses to advertise these miniatures. The photo looks as though the idols would be almost marble, yet the actual coloring is a very drab olive green not too far removed from the toy soldiers that used to come 100 to a box in the backs of comic books. There is an ink wash in black that brings out the details. I was honestly surprised to see how much darker the idols were than in the photo. The idols are possibly paintable, but see below.
2)The idols are made out of slick plastic which could present some problems with melting after a while. Plastic similar to this is often difficult to paint well.
3)The idols come in just two sizes, just like in the "Call of Cthulhu" game. They are not "various-sized."
Lovecraft fans (and even some Derleth fans) are going to be rightfully happy to snatch up these critters while they last.
It adds a nice little bit of flavor to my games. Whether it's my Call of Cthulhu game, where I just set them around the table in odd places for flavor, reminding the players of the kinds of things that are always watching them from the shadows and in odd corners, or during my heavily Lovecraftian, Mythos-based Pathfinder campaign, where I set them around the edges of my Chessex grid-mat, letting the players know just exactly what forces are lurking, watching, and waiting just beyond the edge of their vision (and the edge of their lives.) Letting them know what is in store for them in the future if they probe too deeply into Things Man Was Not Meant To Know (which, of course, being good, curious, risk-taking adventurers, they will do anyway. And once they get high enough level, the real fun will start... :)
I just wish I could find some Mi-Go, Shoggoths, or Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath to use the same way!
I use these with Arkham Horror in place of the game's "doom tokens" since they are a lot more stylish and Arkham Horror is set in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos.
- Very affordable at a per-miniature level
- Pre-painted with good detailing
- Mini-Cthulhu are handy as tokens for Arkham Horror or other games
- Mega-Cthulhu are handy as decorations or sinister paperweights
- Not sure how easy it would be to paint it for those of you who like custom painting things. This is a plastic mini with an olive base and black detailing.
- The bag arrived torn open in the Amazon box. No pieces were lost or damaged, but be aware that packaging might not be the normal high-quality level used by Amazon.
Definitely recommend, particularly if you're playing Arkham Horror or any tabletop game remotely Cthulhu related.

The picture makes them look almost like a soapstone. They are more like Dollar Store Plastic Army Men quality. For the price it is probably what I should have expected. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Ernest K.
These Cthulhus are great! Exactly what I was looking for as toppers for the cupcakes to celebrate H. P. Lovecraft's birthday!
The stars are right!
These little figures are pretty cool, but... the ones I received were a dark brown color - NOT green as in the picture provided (which was part of the reason I bought them...)Published 22 months ago by TheBoogerMan
