In this post, I take a look at the Miniatures of the Ghostbusters Board Game by Cryptozoic Entertainment. This first appeared on Kickstarter, but is now available in retail. Dave Lamers painted the miniatures in this post and I took the pictures.
The point of this post is to show off the painted figures rather than to tell a story. There are lots of cool pictures of the miniatures when you scroll down.
That said, the game is fun, but we lost. Below is how the board looked when we started.
And below is how the board looked like when we ended.
While the game handed us a butt-kicking, the painted miniatures really add to an enjoyable experience. If you can, I highly recommend playing your board games with painted minis. 🙂
Now, let’s take a closer look at the ghost miniatures in this game.
You don’t want to be close to these guys when they get shot as they will slime your character. Otherwise, they are easy to take care of.
When two Galloping Ghouls occupy the same space, they become a Gruesome Twosome.
These guys are a little tougher than Galloping Ghouls and their movement is a little less random.
When two of these guys occupy the same space, they become a Boogaloo Manifestation.
These ghosts are even more focused than the Gruesome Twosomes. Of course, they are tougher opponents too. Check them out!
What Ghostbusters game would be complete without Slimer? Check out this iconic ghost!
Of course, any Ghostbusters Board Game also needs the Ghostbusters. Here we have some nice minis quickly painted to get onto the gaming table.
Overall, some nice looking miniatures. For those of you wondering, here is what the proton-pack looks like.
Wrapping it up…
Hopefully you liked today’s quick Showcase Post showing off the miniatures in Crytozoic Entertainment‘s Ghostbusters: The Board Game. Dave Lamers painted up these miniatures and did a good quick job for his personal copy of the boardgame.
If you are interested in seeing more of his work, or reaching out to him about possibly painting for you, check out his section on this website.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
