Announcing the upcoming release of Arkham Horror Investigator Figures
|Arkham Horror Investigators | Published 31 July 2010|
Now he was praying because the Witches' Sabbath was drawing near. May Eve was Walpurgis Night, when hell's blackest evil roamed the earth and all the slaves of Satan gathered for nameless rites and deeds. It was always a very bad time in Arkham, even though the fine folks up in Miskatonic Avenue and High and Saltonstall Streets pretended to know nothing about it. There would be bad doings, and a child or two would probably be missing.
-H.P. Lovecraft, Dreams in the Witch-House
In the small Massachusetts town of Arkham, mysterious strangers lurk in the streets, dangerous cultists plot to awaken the Ancient Ones, portals to other dimensions release hideous creatures that bring horror and madness into this world... and only a handful of brave investigators stand before the dread of the unknown.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of premium pre-painted miniatures for Arkham Horror, a board game of mystery and madness based on the terrifying literature of master horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. In Arkham Horror, 1-8 players cooperate to investigate the strange happenings about the town, and race to prevent ancient evil from surfacing.
Now, you can immerse yourself even further into the story with a hand-painted miniature of your favorite Arkham Horror character!
These figures, which are made to replace the investigator markers included with Arkham Horror, let you explore the eldritch terrors of Arkham in style. Each investigator miniature is hand-painted, providing enhancement and a new visual impact to your game. Head to our product list to check out the full line of miniatures, or come see the whole lineup at GEN CON!
Note to Retailers: Due to the manufacturing costs of these figures, we are unable to offer this Fantasy Flight Collector product through normal distribution channels. Despite the financial challenge involved, retailers still wishing to carry this product should contact our sales department for more information.
Premium Arkham Horror Investigator miniatures bring your favorite Lovecraftian heroes to vivid life. Each pack includes one pre-painted figure to replace the investigator marker included with the Arkham Horror board game. Enhance your game and rise up against the Ancient Ones in style!
I'm really glad they are back and the price is not too bad. Will buy a couple of my favs and then use the cardboard ones for the rest.
I am so happy that FFG has not given up on the figure line. Stay the course! I am really looking forward to the collection. :)
$4 a piece? Seriously? Getting the minis for Base and Dunwich is already near $100. Add Kingsport and Innsmouth and it's almost $200. That money can be used more wisely, for to pay so much just to add visual to Arkham Horror calls for a Sanity(-4) check, which is instant fail for me! AAAAARGH!
These are very cool. Does anyone know the figure scale yet? My apologies if it's stated and I just missed it. If they end up being the same scale as the custom figures I play with, I could see myself hemorrhaging even more money into this board game. Though, I'd really like to see a pack for sale with all of them unpainted at some point (not holding my breath on this though).
Thankfully, they didn't package them with a promotional Encounter or Mythos card each. The completionist in me would be sorely tempted.
Good deal if you run only a few Investigators......but for those of us who are compelled to be complete,well it adds up.Maybe the release will be staggared to maybe 10 or so each month.
$3.99 each is a lot better than what was originally quoted for these models. Wasnt it around the $15 mark for a package of two investigators the first time around?
Glad to see that they are back. I was worried I wouldnt see them until an Arkham Collectors edition was released (if ever).
Good to see these are back, but too bad about the no sale to retail shops... I guess I'll paint up some other figures for use.
I LOVE YOU!
I will get a FFG logo tattoo on my butt. I swear I will.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Wow, i thought I will never see those again. Now this is a nice suprise!
And here I thought these were cancelled! I'm glad that this decision was reversed even though suppliers will be limited.
