I haven't played AH as much as some people. I just noticed this Kickstarter and wondered which miniatures would be neat to use with AH in addition to the existing ones from Fantasy Flight. There are a few Old Ones and a few things that might make a good start player marker. Are there things in some of the Heralds, GOOs, etc, where these would add any ambiance?

I have some of the old CoC minis and they are really fine.

I believe someone is even still making them.

As for what viable. Hard to say. I assume the sizes are still 25mm?

The new miniatures are "28mm heroic", but that matters only for the humans, imo. The current Classic catalog are 25mm, but the kids and elderly folk should fit with the new humans, and RAFM has a Monsters-only pledge.

Review of the mini's from the IndieGoGo campaign: http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=335511

*****

Anyway, at the Module level:

Character Miniatures: Usable as Cultists, Witches, Ghost, Warlock, custom Investigators.

Nyarlathotep Mask: Thing in the Fog usable as Ghost.

Classic Monsters: Shoggoth, Servitor, Dimensional Shamblers, Moon Beasts, Yithian, Cthonian, Ghouls.

New: Star Vampire, Dimensional Being, two Hybrids, Mr. Shiny as Maniac. Father Dagon usable as First Player token.

More Classic: Mi-Go, Deep Ones, Ghoul Warlock, Hound of Tindalos, Ghast.

Summoning Stones: 3 Summoning Stones usable as Doom track token, Terror token, Elder Signs, etc.

Pure bling: Heralds and GOOs don't appear on the board, but should be amusing to *plonk* on the table during the Final Battle. Heralds: Father Dagon, Mother Hydra (Innsmouth expansion). GOOs: Generic Goo as Azathoh, Yog-Sothoth, and other blobs.

*****

If you have Eldritch Horror:

Epic Monsters: Wind Walker, Shub-Niggurath.

Monsters as tokens: Paint four monsters green (eg. deep ones and a hybrid) to indicate green gates. Same for red and blue gates. Or use them as Mystery, Rumor, etc. markers.

*****

Here's a Mansions of Madness monster base used to hold a Gate. Its color on the back side can be indicated by the blue servitor monster, or you can use the base to place the monster:



Anyone else have any ideas? Under $500 CAD to unlock Shub-Niggurath! Only 17 hours to go!

I started a geeklist to discuss which games might benefit from RAFM's Kickstarter:
