Well that's settled then.

After weeks of wondering what to run at DragonMeet 2012 (in the UK) now I know.

I have the hassle-free minis ordered and the Armorcast van en-route, now all I need to do is paint them up and find some tokens for the bad guys.

Cool! You could always make them fight a Chthonian!

DHRDawg wrote:My Gencon game this year had a theme of Zombies/Cthulhu and wanted to put in a Chthonian for the "Big Bad" at the end that the players had to fight but I couldn't find a mini to match that was affordable. I saw that Reaper Miniatures was selling a Purple Worm in their "Bones" Line that looked like a Chthonian but it needed some tentacles. So I used my Google-Fu and found this site on how to make tentacles.

With that tutorial and some drilling, here's what I came up with. It was surprisingly easy!

I also want to give a shout out to Reality Blurs. I got the stats from their Realms of Cthulhu. Great book by the way!

I have nothing to contribute aside from: this is one of the most awesome threads ever.

Well, one thing: since Shaggy and Scooby are regularly put in disguises as bait, maybe they should have a Disguise skill? (Note: I'm *really* new to Savage Worlds and have no idea if there even *is* such a skill, or if there's a better mechanic for this behavior.)

Usually, disguise is handled by the Stealth skill, or maybe Persuasion if it's mostly a matter of attitudes.

I am going to be running this scenario this weekend for my sons.

I'm almost finished painting Scooby and the gang... drybrushing & giving them that protective finish.

Some modifications:

The Tomato & Cucumber are being replaced with Billy's imaginary friend.

Since I don't have a Tentacle Thing miniature I'm thinking about using a Mi-Go miniature because... 1) It's from the Cthulhu mythos & 2) It has the bat-like wings. For those of you that have Realms of Cthulhu, do you think a Mi-Go soldier would be tough enough for Scooby and the gang?

Here's a pic..
From left to right: Billy's Imaginary Friend, Old Man Smithers, Mi-Go.

Smithers is going to be painted up by tomorrow night.

And... I just decided on one of the things I'll be running at one of my next cons.

I second the question about paper minis. Maybe I can find some images of the characters and make my own...

When making Flats promo images are really good as often they are of single characters isolated on a solid background. Also character one sheets and pc wall papers work well to

Oh and promo shots of the action figures. At one time Paizo was selling figure flat sets that were just pictures of action figures off of on line catalogs photo shopped into FF sheets

I found a site with excellent downloadable paper minis of the entire gang AND the Mystery Machine! They may need to be resized a bit, but that doesn't look like a problem.
