Took a break from painting over the holidays, now I'm back to the Black Goat faction from Cthulhu Wars. Started on the Mi-Go without a clear color scheme in mind and I think it shows. Any ideas what I can do to fix would be greatly appreciated! This one is the flag model that I was trying color schemes out on and I think the one I ended up with looks disconcerting but not in a good way. And these are the other 3, basecoated, pre shaded, with purple underlighting, and some drybrushing.
Started working my way through the Mythos Expansion, and the monsters seemed like the most fun to paint so I did those first. I started with good intentions of following the Mythos... they.... didn't last. First up the Dark Young: The mouths was like leaves and the whole thing was like a tree in the wind, a black tree with lots of branches trailing to the ground, and a whole lot of roots ending in hoofs. - Robert Bloch, "Notebook Found In a Deserted House." Next up, the Gug: "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally." -H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath This post is getting pretty big... spoilering the rest of the pics. The Deep Ones... I think their predominant colour was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. - H.P. Lovecraft The Shadows over Innsmouth Well, I gave up on the white bellies. Couldn't get a look I liked... Next the Mi-go who are supposed to be pinkish... at this point, I gave up following the text. And finally the Graveyard Wailer... I couldn't find this one in the Mythos, so free to paint it however I wanted... Free! FREE! Muhahahahaha!
The painting may not be awesome, but the photos turned out so cool I just had to share them. I started the set about a year ago. I painted the brain case first....because it was easy. So this weekend I finally picked up the mi-go themselves. I took a long time deciding what colors I wanted to do on the Mi-go. They ended up a little more parti-colored than I had intended. Perhaps if I had kept the blue tones darker. The gloss clear coat works well I think, and I loved the green tone (wash) I used on the heads. The shadows make the pictures a little creepy.
