Black Sun Preview – US Army Soldiers

Update: August 8, 2019… The Black Sun Campaign did not reach funding, but these miniatures are available on the Crucible Crush Store. These miniatures will be available at a discount until August 19th as pre-orders. After that, the minis will then go back on sale likely in November (after the pre-orders shipped). 

A while ago, Crucible Crush, the people behind the Cthulhu 1968: Black Sun Kickstarter, sent me sample miniatures. They sent three different sets of miniatures to me. One set of American Soldiers, one of the Vietcong, and one of a group that they call the Adaro. In this post, I take a quick look at five miniatures from Crucible Crush’s US Army Pack.

These miniatures are great whether you are a historical gamer, or someone more interested in playing Black Sun. Bob Murch (the sculptor) does a great job at creating deep levels of details to make the figures easy and quick to paint.

In this post, we will be taking a closer look at five American Soldier miniatures from the Black Sun Kickstarter.

The US Army

Below is the description from Crucible Crush for this faction in Black Sun.

The US Army has been fighting a war in Vietnam for over ten years at  this point and the public at home is growing tired of the loss in young  men’s lives that is occurring in some remote far off country. Little do they know that some of the soldiers listed as MIA are really in another  dimension fighting to get back home, back to anywhere that looks like the earth they left.

Now, let’s take a closer look at those miniatures.

The Unpainted Miniatures

The miniatures in Black Sun are all 28mm. I took these pictures without using inks or anything to enhance the details. The sculptor of these miniatures does a great job on giving deep levels of detail to make the miniatures easier to paint.

Now, these pictures are a little close up for being unpainted, but figures by Bob Murch miniatures really paint up well.

Without further ado, here they are…

Every set of miniatures always needs a figure pointing to propel his men forward. That is this character here. 🙂

That is a cool looking group of miniatures.

Wrapping it up…

Hopefully you enjoyed this post. Its’ purpose is to show off some cool miniatures. If you like what you see, be sure to check out their Cthulhu 1968: Black Sun Kickstarter. There are currently only 5 days left to the campaign so get in quick if you are interested!

I would like to thank Crucible Crush for sending these miniatures for me to review.

As a note, I found some people searching my site for how I attach miniatures to my bases. For plastic figures, I use Testers “Non-Toxic Cement For Plastic Models,” and for resin and metal miniatures, I use Gorilla Super Glue.

Gorilla Super Glue for gluing miniatures to bases
To glue metal miniatures to plastic bases, I use Gorilla Brand Super Glue. While Gorilla glue is my preferred brand, any “CA” or Super Glue should work well.

Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
