View Full Version : Mind flayer miniatures!

Hey gang,
So, for reasons detailled in this thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=98575), I'm soon going to be in need of a pile of Illithid figures for my PCs to maul their merry way through. I've got a few good ones from various DDM sets, and I'm going to grab all four of Reaper's delightfully non-infringy 'Bathalians', but the more variety the better, as the players are likely to maul their way through an entire Illithid city. Any lines on other options for tentacle-faced monstrosities?

On another note, though, the cheapest I saw them online was at coolstuffinc (http://www.coolstuffinc.com/main_searchResults.php?search_text=mind+flayer&form_search_number=25&go.x=0&go.y=0), where they had 9 available at $3.49 each (that's not bad, it's $6.99 or $9.99 other places for the Mind Flayer Scourge).

Ooh, good find! My players don't know this, but I have access to the massive Horrorclix Cthulu. And should they choose to take actions that mess up the veil between the world and the Far Realm, I will take such delight in setting it on the table.

That Scourge is going to be my go-to Mind Flayer goon, I think. Him or the guy with the longspear from Demonweb, or perhaps both, when I need a load of guards- there are a few things that my Illithids won't trust to their thralls.
