This is an unpleasant item, but could be a useful reference for anyone seeking to paint authentic Ku Klux Klan costumes and banners from the classic interwar era. This links to a PDF (downloadable), 38 pages of a period cataloge that sold KKK robes and materials. Like the SS, the KKK makes great cultist-type villains.

Something I found while searching for illustration references to KKK regalia and figured I might as well share with others who might find it useful. This stuff can always be modified into other type of cults or secret organizations, too. (Does anyone even make specific KKK figures?)

Disgusting as it is. The 'Birth of a Nation' is probably a good source.

"Role Play Figures" from Tin Soldier.Com. yes, there they are! I figured someone would have made them by now, and someone else here would know about it. Kinda crude, but they would paint up nice. Other useful figures as well.

Can I have a Grand Cyclops in XXL please?

Balders was a klansman?

And why do the cyclopses have two eyeholes?

Thanks 11th ACR for the link. I have an idea for a new game. "Gillmen v. the Klan". Lol.

Good companion pieces to the Black Panthers seen in an earlier thread.

Yes, THAT would be a clash!

Hydra? Imperial Representative? Klavalier?

Jesus, I knew this group had goofy kiddy names for things, but how anybody did any of this with a straight face is beyond me.

It's so perfectly cartoon-like, you'd think these guys only existed as super-villains in Marvel comics.

Why do you think their faces were hidden, Crazyivanov? The costume also served to dampen the continuous chuckling.

@piper 'Kinda crude' that's an understatement on some (most) of the sculpts on that link!
