Cavern Lake / River Monster Models Suggestions. 1 Year, 9 Months ago  
I'm looking for some cavern lake/river monsters to populate my table top. I would especially like to see if any of you know where I could find some good models of a large crab monster for a lake area that would be scaled to be large but match 28-32 mm size figures.

Any other suggestions for good models for a cavern or lake monster?

Oddly enough, the plastic animal section of your local crafts and/or toy store.

Some will be the approximate scale of the crab that attacked on the beach in "The Mysterious Island", but you might also find a couple in the scale you are thinking of.

Try Reaper minis - they do a "scuttlebones" undead giant crab mini that's awesome. If you wanted to make it 'non - undead' and you have some green stuff, that'd be a relatively easy conversion to do!

Alternatively, there's always kids toys, as mentioned above.

I like that skuttlebones the crab. That is the type of model I'm looking for. Has anybody seen some similar models to that? Thanks again.

Whenever I think river or lake, I get the old school d&d feel run through me. So two aquatic denizens that come to mind are the Giant Gar (no miniature that I know of), the River Troll. And if you're doing something truly mind bending, like a sea in the underdark; the terrifying Aboleth come to mind as well.

So, it seems Reaper mini is the go to for the aquatic line of miniatures. And like they said, you never know what you'll find in toy stores. I couldn't find another crab model, (although how can you beat a mini that shows a view into it's own digestion system?) except the 'small' one in the aquatic familiars pack on Reaper. And then there was this guy;


Khurasan Minaitures ?

I hope that helps.

Thanks Zargon! I really like that crab man you found. I'll have to look to see where I can order him. Your right about reaper minis they seem to have some of the best options so far for lake/river underground monsters. I'm excited.

Have any of you tried using lake pieces for the sides of an underwater gaming scenario. Perhaps with some coral looking pieces so adventures could "dive" into the lake and adventure below the surface? An underwater cave in our caverns would be all types of fun!

Conventional wisdom is that the best place to find underwater scenery is actually the pet shop, in the aquarium section.

I have this one from Kobblestone Miniatures. It was a breeze to paint but is quite large.

Thanks big teacher, I wouldn't have thought to look at this sea monster from kobblestone. Lots of good models in this thread. Thanks everyone.
