Sometimes a game leads to a purchase which leads to another game (which also must be purchased). This is how the middling end up going from A Fistful of Kung Fu to embracing Strange Aeons (and supporting their kickstarter). From kung fu to cthulhu, via paypal.
These Reaper Bones models were purchased during a furious period of realizing all of the many possibilites that the flexibility of Osprey’s A Fistful of Kung Fu allows – virtually any kind of model can form the foundation of a gang.
Naturally, a cthuhlu cult was in order – and only after did the thought of actually researching Lovecraftian horror skirmish games arise, and after middling-efforts at research, Strange Aeons was stumbled upon and more-than-one-use was found for these models. Anytime a model can be used in more than one system, or to more than a single purpose is both utilitarian and wunderbar!
The models: An eldritch demon
Deep ones and deep one champion (5 more deep ones have been painted since this photo was taken, for a total of 8 fish-rapists)
A shoggoth (who has an irritangingly large amount of eyes to paint)
Cultists: heroclix repaints of cultist-esque models
A cult sorcerer (or something): off of a reaper bathalian model
