I am planning on running a Hell on Earth for a Con... and suggestions. I'll use the Cardstock if I have too... but I would prefer some actual minis..

Thanks for any suggestions

Y

For Rad Zombies, I recommend the Irradiated Zombie from HorrorClix (from "The Lab" set, #045). Here's a sample of someone else's work at touching them up that I found after a Google image search:



Basically, the upper body is translucent green plastic, which makes for a great "radioactive glow" effect.

There are a number of other figures in the HorrorClix line that might be useful, if you can find them as singles. For example:

(Base Set) - Skeletal Maiden #13/14/15: Flaming, semi-skeletal figure, in translucent orange-red plastic. Great for your miscellaneous ghostly horror needs.

(The Lab) - Frothweiler #19/20/21: Mutant, skinless dog with spiky spine. Grrr!

(Nightmares) - Survivalist #9: Guy in fatigue pants and a gas mask. Great for miscellaneous post-apocalyptic raiders, etc.

Anyway, you can still find these figures as singles, in varying quantities, on various sites such as Troll and Toad (http://www.trollandtoad.com). There are various weird things, such as killer robots, modern werewolves, mutants, etc., that could be useful for Hell on Earth either as-is, or with a bit of conversion/painting.

My practice is to get the figures, then use a hobby knife to cut them off their "clix" bases, and re-glue them onto something smaller and more practical -- either a 25mm plastic gaming base, or if you really want to keep it economical, an ordinary US penny. (It's cheaper than a plastic base, after all.)

This isn't a cheap solution, but check out the Menoth from Privateer press's Warmachine game.

They'll fit the religious nuts fairly well imo.

Chronoscope has a pretty decent line of minis, I got three for my game from that line.... Only issue I see with them is the girls are all made for guys to look at, all scantily clad big boobs, and that doesn't work so well with my group that has two girls lol...

Yuri,

I'll second the Cobblestone castings suggestion, specifically the scavengers series. Those are some of the ones I intend to use.

There are plenty of now obsolete mini games out there, which you should be able to get for a song.

I use a bunch of old Mage Knight models I picked up when I was young and foolish. They're varied enough that I can usually find something appropriate for just about any WC imaginable, and I use figure flats for the Extras.

Heh! I used to use miniatures for the WC's and flats for the Extras. Players started saying "The cardboard ones are the Extras ... ignore them and go for the miniatures!" I still use flats at times, but try not to to mix them with miniatures now (excepting the player character miniatures, of course).
