Mansions of Madness - Cult Leader

Oh, Real Life…why do you hate my hobby so?

Many real world things have happened over the past two weeks that have kept me from hobbying, but things should settle soon into a comfortable balance. In the meantime, here's a quick Mansions of Madness update.

My last MoM update was the Cultists, so I thought I’d finish off the motley-but-stylish crew of unholy worshippers by painting up the Cult Leaders.

A bit of a rush job, and I’m still fighting with the details on the MoM figures, but whatever – I’m not a fine display quality painter, and these aren’t fine display quality miniatures, so on the board they should work great.

I’m happy with that.

One thing that I'm finding to be really strange with the MoM figures is the varying proportion and scale between the human characters in the set - odd sized heads and hands, and a weird slightness or thinness that some of the figures have compared to others. The Cult Leaders, for example, are much more slight than their followers, the Cultists, and they tend to look pin-headed compared to them.


  1. Looking good. Maybe the Cult Leaders all have eating disorders and some sort of shrunken head syndrome due to cult ceremonies.

    1. Exactly.

      Seems strange that having heads the size of grapefruits would instill confidence in their followers that they were fit for leadership positions.
