Blue Moon Manufacturing

A while ago I found a company that really impressed me.

Blue Moon Manufacturing

I can't remember how I discovered this particular company, but I have some of their "Bump in the Night Sets".

I have Box 1 I Had Such a Howling Good Time set and I rate these an 8 out of 10. The main werewolf post is great and I really like the action and terror the pose instills. The only drawback is it is a bit top heavy and I had to add weight to the base to keep from knocking it over. The other figures too are well done and I am very impressed by the sculpts. Even the Victorians that come with it are detailed and hopefully I will do them justice when I paint them. Once I get my work place back I'll finish him up so I can post some pictures. I'm hoping to get these guys painted for Halloween horror gaming.

Box 2 You're Such a Pain in the Neck is a set of vampires and their hunters. This is where Blue Moon drops the ball as far as monsters go. The vampire sculpts are as impressive as the Werewolves on action, so the monsters here only get a 5, but the detail on the Victorians really make up for it and they get a 9. The set itself is worth the Victorians, especially the Van Helsing figure.

Their upcoming Things that go Bump in the Night: Aliens and Spacement has me jazzed. So Jazzed that I started writing up rules for them (a modification of the Chaos in Carpathia rules).

The vehicles that they just released for the Aliens and Spacemen look like good old fashion pulp Sci-Fi from the 40's and 50's. I can't wait to get my hands on them and hopefully my rules adaptation will bring those babies to life.

Unfortunately I need my workspace back in order to have the models come to life with a good paint job.

Ah but the posibilities are endless.

Thanks Blue Mountain Manufacturing!
