  1. A coworker buddy found this guy at a thrift store under "knickknacks". Yay! Or, I should say, "Ia-ee!" :-) But I got slightly blocked on painting him. He's been sitting on the kitchen table unfinished for about a month. So I thought I'd post him to unblock myself. I haven't decided whether I'm going to keep the base he came on... it looks kind of beachy, which is neat, but I feel like more could be done. One concern I have about the figure is that its base is only about 4-5" across, while the Pathfinder's Cthulhu stats show a 40' Space, and I like the base to match that (at 28mm scale, of course). So a substantial expansion may be called for... Anyway, this is him so far, needing substantial additional paint... I should do this more often. The camera has clearly managed to find all my missing mold lines. :-/
  2. The scenery from The Bones 3: Mythos Expansion 77525 Great Obelisk. I have tried to vary the tones on the greys used here, on the obelisk itself and not just the cephalopod on top. It really does not show up too well in the pictures. 77523 Cthulhu Shrine A statue that causes sanity loss. As above, I trued to vary the tones,mostly with different coloured glazes. And they do not really show up in the pictures here either. This does not seem to have a code nor a name (yet). It is also from the Bones 3 Mythos Expansion. I will call it the Cultists Altar.
  3. Behold! The lord of madness! Cthulhu How does he even see?! BFF forever!
  4. Hes coming....
  5. Knocked these out last night. Was a nice quick speed paint so I could get to doing the cultists. Needed something for them to stand around on the shelf. Used Dwarven Gold on the writing and the pics don't show that lovely peachy gold lustre from the paint.
  6. Did these a little while back. i really liked how they turned out and they convinced me to tackle my Cthulhu and get it done.
  7. Here is my next project. Shouldn't take too long since I wont need that many colors. I wont be gluing this one together as I want to be able to disassemble the standing stones for storage. With that in mind...I'm debating whether I should use any static grass on them or not...decisions decisions So far I've partly primed lil-thulhu. I'm going to find out if this new grey bones takes paint like the white bones.
  8. Hey gang! Thought I'd post the Eldritch Demon I painted recently. I decided to take a departure from the iconic green flesh mythos monster look and try a more orangey-jaundice flesh tone. Also used a yellow/orange mix to highlight the cool patterns covering the skin. Also, used the MSP Adamantium Black to give the base a neat volcanic/space rock look. I did keep the tentacles a traditional pink colour. Just seemed to fit with the whole new flesh, soft and squishy, feel (like a sea creature without its shell?)... Cheers! :) -E.E.
  9. Here is another as I'm a huge lovecraft fan :) Please let me know how to do better!
  10. Here is a conversion I did for a Migo warrior in my Call of Cthulhu game The body was a Reaper Warlord miniature: 14456: Mastema, Darkspawn Demon. The head was from Rebel miniatures, I think the figure was called a terror mite. The wings were something from a long time ago. buckyball
  11. My GM needed this mini urgently for a game session this weekend. Asked me to paint it up. Needed a hill giant that had gone through Illithid ceremorphosis and created the hill giant from hell. Not the best pic from angles as GM had already grabbed the mini. Once it is used need to finish tentacles and runes on the base. Anyhoo thought I'd share
  12. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/195095939/props-of-nyarlathotep-london-and-cairo?ref=category_newest Crafted props for the London and Cairo chapters of the Call of Cthulhu Campaign by Chaosium : the Masks of Nyarlathotep.
  13. The small gaming community that got it's first two legs early last year is starting to flourish over here. :) Gathered a few people for DnD 5th. edition, too, now. I've made myself a Warlock. He will be drawing his strength from a Great Old One, only referred to as the King in Yellow. ^^ Guess what book his pact of the tome is inspired from. Hint: It's bound in human flesh, and inked in blood..
  14. PC miniature for my pathfinder campaign. Wizard named Timothy, with his familiar, a blue ringed octopus. Worships cthulhu, I sclupted a cthulhu idol on his staff. The lamp was sculpted into an octopus jar with the familiar.
  15. I present you my latest effort... I painted this one faster than I thought as I was driven to finish. SOMETHING prevented me from giving him that scary ugly monster treatment...not sure what though ! My version of his lord and master CTHULHU bones version 77194. (usual disclaimer on how I suck at taking pics...) Thanks for looking
  16. Latest Reaper painting project. Blog post... http://mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2016/04/tentacles.html Kevin in Edmonton http://mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  17. This week I completed the Hordlings set from the Bones II, Expansion I. I needed something quick and simple to do because I was traveling over Spring Break, so knew my painting time would be limited. Since there were three of these figures in the set, I decided to base up two of them for Frostgrave, to represent Minor Demons; and the third I based regularly for other Fantasy games. I just did quick tabletop paint jobs. I've been painting a bunch of dark and drab stuff lately, so it was nice to use some vibrant colors for a change! ​As always, C & C welcome.

  19. So, my Eberron players are very likely to face a large, otherworldy horror from Xoriat, the plane of madness. I have lots of options, what with the Daelkyr and all, but really, why pass up the chance to drop C'thulhu in front of a bunch of 13th level PCs? Why, indeed. Of course, this means I need to paint the big guy...and I really haven't painted much in nearly a year. So, out of practice as I am, I decided to spend President's day to, as the kids say, git'r dun. (do the kids still say that? Did they ever say that?) I started out trying something new. I've used artist's acrylics to good effect in the past, and for Christmas my parents sent me a set of something very cool: Turner's Acrylic Gouache. It has a lot of the properties of gouache, with the ease of use of acrylic paints...here's the box copy from a popular online art store: " Incredibly versatile, it will adhere to most substrates like wood, acrylic boards, stone, cloth, clay, metal, slate, glass, aluminum, iron, hard vinyl, styrofoam, stretched canvas, and properly-sized artist's papers. Turner Acryl Gouache is quick drying and water-reducible (2:1 paint to water ratio), yet water resistant when dry. It can be applied in multiple layers with no bleeding or streaking, while retaining a velvet-like, matte finish and brilliant color hue. " This stuff sticks to Bones like whoa, it's massively opaque with great coverage, dries totally matte ("velvet-like," indeed) and is crazy bright. So, for a basecoat, it's great. Here's an image of a basecoat with some initial attempts at highlighting: You can see, that "opaque" thing makes it hard to blend. I found that watering down about 10:1 still produced a chalky-at-best opacity. The good news is, this was one of the fastest, most complete basecoats I've ever put on a bones mini; Brown Liner need not apply (*gasp*). After discovering the acrylic gouache was not suitable for layering in the shadows and highlights, I went a bit Wappelly and did some really primitive versions of his shaded basecoat and glazing technique. All told, about eight hours of work (including the basecoat experiment) produced this tabletop-worthy paintjob: There's a lot I'd like to be better, most notably the underside of the wings and the lack of color in the glazing (I really just used two glazes to unify the highs/lows), but this needs to be ready for my next game session, and it will impress the players well enough. C&C as ever are welcome! Edit for typos..."Everron" sounds like a brand of battery, not a campaign setting. Although Cannith may very well manufacture Everron-brand batteries...

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/torgaming/the-cthu-a-cthulhu-mythos-inspired-relics-faction?ref=nav_search From the depths of the deepest, darkest swamps of Relicia, the Cult of C’thu emerges. Its origins seeped in betrayal of the most heinous kind. Lord C’thu commands his minions from the shadows, whispering his unholy wishes into the eager ears of his chosen avatars. One of these devotees has surpassed all others in his pursuit of power and has assumed the mantle of leader and with it the authority to conduct the affairs of the cult on behalf of his malevolent master, he his known as Xavius Prime and from the glades of the Krakenshearth he plots to bring a terrible plague of madness upon all of Relicia. Relics is a tabletop wargame in the 28mm scale. Making use of the glorious D6, Relics uses the rolling of doubles as the main core mechanic for determining successes in combat. We may be wrong but we don't know of another game that used double for successes. Coupled with an alternating activation sequence, Relics is a fast and fun game where players aren't sitting around waiting for their go for long! stretch goals
  21. I recently started painting miniatures again. These are the first three reaper bones miniatures I did. I hope you like what you see! Since I just picked up my old hobby any comments and critique is much appreciated! I am pretty pleased with the results after not having painted any miniatures for about 10 years
  22. I have built up the courage to paint my Cthulhu from the bones one kickstarter, he has been played with as a 3d jigsaw by my two lads for the past year, but I have decided to face the fear of the model and get it painted. So far I have cleaned off some of the mold line, there are not that many that can be cleaned off completely and it has been wash. The next step is to give it an undercoat, the plan is to paint the body, base and head as three peices. So first up I need to glue the body together and use some gree stuff to fill in any gaps.
  23. Ok. So I'm going to start another WIP thread/painting diary. This time I'm going to start work on Cthulhu from the first Bones campaign. I will likely have things come up that I may have to stop and start but I will come back here when work resumes. I still haven't finished the eyes from my bush (doh). Today I started trying to get some of the basecoating done. As I started I realized that I had done a poor job with a couple mold lines and filling the gap between body and tail. So a lot of the work today was done trying to smooth this out without taking out the scalpel. And for that I used some of both liquid green stuff and reaper brush on sealant. It has helped a lot but I may still have to go over once or twice more. So here is a very early and raw WIP. Not even done basecoating. Also Cthulhu is so big I can't take a full pic in the photo box I have here so most Of the pics will likely be close ups of different areas this time. Thanks for looking and comments and criticisms are always welcome!
  24. As has been a theme this year, the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. This month I am doing some horribly horrid horrors. Once upon a time I bought some monster miniatures in metal for Call of Cthulhu, made by RAFM. For some reason or other, I only ever got around to building and painting two or three of them. Well, I think I know why. They are in really hard metal, have horrible mould lines, and to top it off, the parts do not fit very well. To get them all well and proper, power tools and prodigous amounts of filling (and filing!) are required. Basically a real pain to prepare for painting. Needless to say, I recently rediscovered them in the ancient box of wonders under the stairs. Here is the Shoggoth: "It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train - a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its kind had swept so evilly free of all litter." from H.P.Lovecraft: At the Mountains of Madness. 1936 I put it on a 5x10 cm wooden oval base by Warbases Those oval bases have proven to be quite the problem solver for several oddly shaped minis I have been wondering how to base. Those mould lines were so hard I would have had to put it to a grinder to get them off. And that would have ruined the surface details more than some lines do.
  25. So I finally let my daughter paint Cthulhu today. Gave her some tips and she followed some for a bit but soon did her own thing. I must say that for a little one she did pretty well and wow what interesting color choices. All colors were from my MSP paints.
