Crowdfunding Preview: Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish game KS from Spartan Games!

22 Dec

For those who aren’t familiar, Achtung! Cthulhu is  the WW2 era combined with the mythos of HP Lovecraft and his contemparies. Up till now it’s been focused on the RPG side of things, but news is 2014 will see the release of the skirmish version of the popular setting.

I am a big fan of anything mythos, but not so keen on WW2 stuff, but this might change my mind about that. What is clear, is that there are a few great looking mini’s there and no doubt there will be some great opportunities to use some other companies 28mm WW2/WeirdW2/Cthulhu stuff to add more options to the mix! Hey, there’s probably loads of scifi and fantasy stuff that’d be good too, at this rate I’ll be a convert to the elder gods!

check out the Ronald Macdonalds in the Chapman Brothers instalation, why so many clowns…

I can imagine tabletop scenes not unlike the ones made by the renown art duo, the Chapman brothers, whose massive dioramas of WW2 carnage and evil, wouldn’t seem too out of place for the premise of the game, just with added tentacles and gribblies for that extra dimension of “urgh”! I fear that the 28mm wargamer in me is going to resurface if things keep up like this!

This could be a hit for 2014, watch this space. The stars may be right.
