Looking for pulp/CoC minis

What are some of the better pulp/CoC minis out there? I haven't bought any minis of this type in a couple decades so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

While of course there is RAFM.com, many other manufacturers have figs great for investigators, the unknowing populace and the things that are not wholly of this reality.

Em-4 Minis
Thugz are perfect for modern encounters or a game of Grand Theft Cthulhu

Old grenadier Investigators, painted, for when you are too scared to paint.

Old glory has some very nice period pieces, and…

Games workshop chaos army of Tzeentch has horrors, flamers, and faceless gliding things that will rip away sanity as fast as they rip holes in your wallet. Their Tyranid line has all sorts of figs just begging to be pressed into service as a servitor race with giger-esque feel.

Heroclix has tons of civilian figs just waiting to be pressed into service for modern, pulp and noir era games. The skimpiness of the female heroine’s outfits often makes them perfect for streetwalkers and such in modern games. Several of the mutants are also inhuman enough to be decent critters. And for real fun, set a Cthulhu Now! adventure in a comic book convention center.

The Mageknight game has a handful of figs as well that would be easily used a servitor races for CoC

Of course Horrorclix has a few Cthulhu flavored figs

The RAFM minis are pretty fun and really capture the spirit of CoC. Though, since CoC is hardly a game that really needs many figs for combat, I don't get much use out of them other than the joy of painting them.

You can't beat Copplestone Castings for (non-monstrous) pulp-era miniatures. They paint up really nicely too.

For CoC stuff, RAFM is the way to go. However, I think that whoever does their sculpts is much better at monsters than people. Also, some of their humanoid-sized miniatures, like their serpent people and deep ones, are a bit weedy looking.

I really like the old Grenadier Cthulhu line, but you'll have to scour eBay for these...

Let's not forget Bob Murch, who--I believe--did a lot of the sculpts for the classic CoC minis...he's still in business and making awesome minis: Pulp Figures.

Yep-these are exactly what I'm looking for. I'm just getting ready to order the Rocketmen, the Zepplen Troopers in Gasmasks and the Rugged Heroes. Thanks for the quick responses everyone-I really appreciate it!

Mr. Murch also sculpted the the RAFM Cthulhu miniatures. :)
