Studio Miniatures have dropped four fearsome new killers for fans of tabletop horror. People would do well to avoid these fierce filmatic figures as they stalk their way across the tabletop, hoping to eliminate some survivors as they go.

The Vampyr // Studio Miniatures

First up is the Vampyr a classic of cinema despite the order for all copies of the film to be destroyed, this is a fantastic representation of Count Orlok and will do sterling work for any game requiring a blood-sucking vampire for their tabletop. I also like that he's simple and yet stylish so you can use him from modern games through to fantasy without issue.

The Harlequin // Studio Miniatures

The Harlequin is a modern version of the personification of an extraterrestrial that may live below the city of Derry or Londonderry (little local joke there) it's a great representation of IT, whatever it may be although not a giant spider version which we can all agree won't do the trick. But I love the balloon how it floats alongside the villainous smile.

The Son // Studio Miniatures

The Son with substantial mother issues and a whole lot of psychotic rage. But anyone looking at his mother will realise that Norman is the real killer and not his mother, they'll look at her sitting still a fly crawling over her hand and notice how   “I'm not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching. They’ll see. They’ll see and they’ll know. They'll say ‘why she wouldn't even hurt a fly.

The Catcher // Studio Miniatures

The last of the new releases is probably the most horrific and disturbing of all. The Catcher with his bell and net stalking from door to door to looking for children to lock up in the tower on the Baron's behest. I love the sinister black look for the Catcher but I could also see another sculpt with his topcoat of many colours and hands filled with lollipops representing him before he obtains his quarry. Perhaps clever converters out there can whip it up with greenstuff and inspiration.

Studio Miniatures have come up with another set of fantastic pop culture-based minis and I can see a lot of people grabbing them to paint even if they don't have a place in a game. I can also see merit in basing a game or set of games around them. A chase game with the Catcher and a bunch of kids could be a lot of fun. It's always great to see sculpts coming out that aren't the usual run of the mill miniatures tied to a game, or armed with weapons that their media counterparts would never have wielded.

Being metal none of them float down here.
