  1. FitzBones: Gug

    Here's one of the Cthulhu Mythos creatures from Kickstarter III, a Gug. I really don't know what that is; I've played a bit of Call of Cthulhu from time to time, but never come across one of these. I suppose I could look it up, but I'm lazy.
  2. This is one of the Cthulhoid critters from the recent Bones Kickstarter. I think they call it Spawn of Shub-Niggurath, but I'm not completely sure about that. Just a side note: Windows 10 did an update recently, and since then Photoshop's colour balance has gone entirely to broccoli. What I see in Photoshop has no relation to what I get as output, and I'm really struggling to figure out how to get it back. That's why all of these images are too blue.
  3. Allright so I was painting and then the idea occurred to me to try to paint gore on the wings. Needless to say I got carried away and I'm not *quite* sure how to make it look good again. Please help! Third pic specifically, I'm fairly happy with the other parts.
  4. Mythos Expansion: The Monsters

    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!
  5. Hi, I have received and i'm painting Bones 3 Mythos expansion but i have'nt identified all the monsters. I know that there is a : - One Gug - 4 deep ones Buit for the others i'm not sure. Is the big one a Shub Niggurath "dark young one" ? There are two creatures with 4 legsand tentacles on the head (Chtuloids?) And at last a sort of little monster compposed with 3 tentacles and a lot of mouths. As i haven't read Lovecraft, a bit of help wouls be welcome (including for the paint color schemes) Thanks !
  6. 03675: Gravewailer

    Finally finished the Gravewailers. Bought two ages ago and then the Bones 3 Mythos ex-pack had one. So I waited until I got the third one before painting. Seems I started on them ages ago. But things kept getting in the way to finish. Including my cat who decided they were delicious to nibble and suck on. Rather then doing in pink and reds. Decided I wanted to go for something a little more alien and starspawn like. So tried to make them purple with the look of bluish light showing from within. Trying to get that alien Lovecraftian feel of something beyond explanation. LOL think I need some sleep. Hopefully not about anything Lovecraftian :)
  7. 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.
  8. Cthulhu and Mermaid Cake Topper

    Creating wedding cake toppers offers me a lot of artistic variety. There are a lot of different things that people want to put on their cakes, and it always impresses me that after almost ten years of doing this, I can still be surprised at some of the awesome ideas I get to make into reality. Here is one of those concepts that really got me. This is Cthulhu and his Mermaid bride. I had him put a hand around her waist to help support her, and overall I really think this couple turned out well. I wonder if someone will have me create a topper where bride and groom are both mer-folk sometime.
  9. 77113: Eldritch Demon

    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.
  10. This started when I found fishmen bodies in the trade-in bin at Reapercon. Thanks to everyone who helped me search for hours for the arms. I completely forgot that they had detached tails as well and ended up sculpting some very poor imitations when I got home. Went through the bits box and gave the two big guys some added weapons, one has a sword, the other a magic staff topped with a chunk of coral. Dug out some Bones from one of the KS to add to the mix. Their names are War, Pestilence, Famine, Death, and Bad Gumbo. I finished painting them in December, but just got the bases done this weekend.
  11. The forces of madness are many and varied. Ranging from the harmless mob to the terrifying star spawn. The thin barrier protecting the world is a small group of people. I will be painting up the miniatures from Mansions of Madness 2nd edition and Recurring Nightmares. Normally I would not start another work in progress while one is still unfinished, but we have been playing the game quite a bit and I have been running the Strange Aeons pathfinder set which is mythos based. So I can use plenty of cultist. These will be painted to table top quality. I also have completed a side project that was holding up my being able to paint. An in progress photo is below. Some of the cultists have already been started and but I have been mainly working on cleaning up the mold lines. I have been asked to work on one of the Chthonian so that is what I will be working on next. Fantasy flight had painted versions of the miniatures, but at least on this one I did not like their paint scheme to much. So I will be working on my own. I will probably work through most of the monsters first before starting the investigators as I have a greater need for them.

  13. So here's a pleasant little chibi elder god that I got painted up a little while ago. I decided to open his eyes a little (elder gods don't always have to sleep, right?)
  14. Bag of fleshy mess

    I went for the fleshy look.
  15. Another Chibi Mini's Kickstarter, this time for Cthulhu Miniatures. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/chibi-gaslight-horror-cthulhu-mythos-and-sci-fi-mi Some of them look pretty nice. The monsters are adorable. Very tempting.
