You might have noticed that every badass antihero ever wields two guns and a long trenchcoat. Well, before all those guys were even a twinkle in their momma's eye there was The Shadow. That's right, long before the playboy by day, superhero by night archetype originated with The Shadow, who was Lamont Cranston when he wasn't scaring the bejeezus out of bad guys. If you were ever wondering where to get The Shadow in miniature form, look no further! Bob Ridolfi's The Black Mist fits the bill perfectly.

That said, The Shadow's a pretty simple sculpt: black trench coat, black and red cape, red scarf, two pistols. Doesn't matter, The Shadow -- excuse me, The Black Mist -- is in a class all his own. If you're not inclined to include The Shadow in your campaign, then he would make a suitable villain. But I wouldn't recommend it. HE might find out.

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The...uh, Black Mist knows..."

You can purchase this miniature at Amazon.
