Dark Platypus has started their own Kickstarter campaign in order to make new models for their horror line.

From the campaign:

The Tentacles & Eyeballs goal is to take these sculpts of terrifying classic fantasy creatures and bring them right to your doorstep as gaming minis!

The goal of this KickStarter is to raise funds for mold-making and production costs to add this pile of similarly-themed monster sculpts to my product line. These tentacled aberrations come straight from the darkest reaches of the Far Realms, and would be at home eating the PC’s off of any D&D, Pathfinder, or Old School roleplaying table! Castings of the models themselves will be the rewards that backers can choose to receive for their assistance in helping me meet this goal.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • Since Andy of Dark Platypus is my caster, I’ve seen these models first-hand. They are incredibly detailed and the largest model is really huge and imposing. These are great figs and I intend to buy a few to use for Strange Aeons (Cthulhu skirmish).

  • These look fantastic! Is the square base integral or can it be swapped with a circle? I prefer circles.

  • I think the bases are separate. I prefer circular bases, too and I’ll probably mount mine on a CD or large resin scenic base.

    • Thanks! I have designed and manufactured round resin bases for my Kaiju Kaos game and I’m seriously considering getting these for use in that.

    I can also vouch for the detail and intricacies of these models, as Andy has been sculpting for me on a personal commission basis since 2008. In fact, the three largest models included in this Kickstarter were originally financed by me as part of my latest commission and as I write this I am looking at them and can tell you, yes they are awesome to behold. To anyone looking to include some of the most sought after old school fantasy monsters in their miniature form, look no further!
