Fantastic work!

 

The Dark Young's paint scheme is my favorite.  It's exactly the way I pictured it, but I had no idea how to make it work.  That's a lot of great detail and colour for what is, essentially, a black paint scheme - great work!

 

The original paint schemes for the Mi-Go and Grave Wailer work very well, too - I think it's fine to go with your instincts over the text on the colours of Lovecraft's monsters anyway - after all, we are getting those descriptions from unreliable narrators with judgments that can be very safely questioned since most of them at best barely saw the monsters, and at worst are raving maniacs!

Thanks! The Dark Young was my favorite of them to paint. It's a great model and trying to use multiple shades of black was a challenge. The colors I used for the blacks were Reaper MSP nightmare black, true black, swamp green, Walnut brown, and ritterlich blue.

Very cool and I love that you tried to match some of the vague descriptions provided by various maniacs over the years through Lovecraft.

But, but... what about my favorite solstice carol: "Freddy the red brained mi-go?"

 

good work on these.  I do like the dark young and the mi-go best

Loooove it. I'm working on a "Witch coven" scenario (it's a long shot, because the "Tree of despair" from Bones IV will be part of it) but a piece like that as something the witches summoned will look cool. Could you give me an idea about it's size?

It's approximately five inches tall to the top of the tentacles.

Free! FREE! Muhahahahaha!

Poor Argentee, painting all these unspeakable horrors seems to have unhinged her.:;,;:

 

Well, she did an amazing job, anyway.:winkthumbs:

      As implied in the thread title: A) I painted these over the long weekend, B) I intend to use them as members of one of the Cults of the Dragon Below in my upcoming Eberron campaign, and C) I have no idea where these minis came from.
       
      I mean, I know that I procured them as part of a lot from my FLGS, but they came loose and I don't know a manufacturer, sculptor, etc. There's not any stamp on them anywhere, so no clues there. I got these three, and two more of each figure with exposed heads (the one with the hood up is the only copy of that pose)...so they may have come in a set of three, or a set of seven with one leader figure, or they may be three separate products and I just got doubles.
       
      EDIT: They come from Old Glory's SuperFigs line, where they are sold in packs of five. The guy on the right of my photos below is actually the unique "leader" model. Thanks, @strawhat for pointing me the right way!
       
      Anyway, pretty generic cult-mooks, and I gave them correspondingly generic color schemes. The robes are a progression of Walnut Brown, Blackened Brown and Bright Red; the hoods and sashes are Carnage Red up through Saffron Sunset into Sunlight Yellow. Skin is Golden Skin mixed up or down with Desert Sand and Walnut Brown. Probably not as much contrast as they could have, but they'll be decent mooks on the table.
       

       C&C always welcome, and if anyone can identify them, please do so!

      Final part of the Black Goat faction down. Tell me what you guys think!



    • By ThirstyBob
      Just finished the Mi-Go from the black goat faction and thought I would put up pictures of them and the cultists and ghouls I finished before. C&C always appreciated!

      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.

      Got ol Shubbu-Shubbu painted up a while ago, never got around to showing her off. The base has pieces of acritter from Cthulu-Wars, as well as tentacles from Reaper's Creature Components (03334) and a pile of skills from Forge Prints, as well as copious amounts of water effects for slime. Really enjoyed painting this abomination. I based the colors a bit on the Demogorgon from Stranger Things, as the mouth really reminded me of the beast.
