"Worse things happen at sea," the saying goes. Here is one of those Worse Things: Father Dagon, God-king of the Deep Ones, Lord of the Waters. This is a truly tremendous sculpt, colossal in size and bulk. He comes with four limbs, three tail-pieces, a phosphoresent angler lure, and a big ol' base with a big ol' eldritch obelisk. Here's the turnaround:
And here are some top-down views; there's simply too much Dagon to be captured by any one angle.
A suitable antagonist/boss for a pulp submarine faction!
Here is the etiology of the Innsmouth Degeneration: young folk are just kind of pop-eyed, then in later young adulthood, the thirties or so, they experience rapid hair loss, skin coarsening, a broadening of the mouth, and an expansion of the finger and toe membranes. The eyes become greatly enlarged, the back hunches and the upper thoracic vertebrae extend. The feet also enlarge, and numerous physiological changes take place, adapting the patient for high-pressure environments. The gills set in in the fifties or sixties. At this point, the patient is almost completely scaled. Walking and breathing on land become laborious. The patients take to the water soon after.
But that is not the end of the transformation. The patient is now unrecognizable as human, as spines and barbels grow in. A tail may or may not emerge. The patient packs on muscle and blubber of distinctly fishlike quality. The dorsal fin is very pronounced, as are the claws. Growth slows dramatically once the patient reaches a half-ton or so, but does not stop. There is no theoretical limit to how big a Deep One of truly advanced years can grow, and they do not die of old age.
Here's a vignette I think I'll call "Out of Our Depth." I'm quite pleased by the lighting on that second shot.
When you can ride a bear?! This is one I found at the gaming shop and thought was too awesomely unique to pass up. It was also part of the batch of strong heroines I bought up for my birthday in December and have since been painting. My first time painting irises in the eyes of a mini as well.
I was gifted a box of about a hundred old minis last year, some painted, some not. The original paint jobs were serviceable, but basically base coats with no wash or shading to speak of. I’ve been painting about a year and a half.
This fellow was painted, so I stripped him down, then using the original color scheme, re-did him. Except for the hair. He was originally a brunette. I really like the sculpt, especially that beard!
I really enjoyed hanging out with Jason Wiebe at ReaperCon.
After a few drinks, he started telling the group of us stories, and they got funnier as the night went on. 74
I'm not sure if it was more due to what he was drinking or what I was.
Anyway, this special edition was released for his benefit and I was glad to purchase it. Apparently, he favors Hawaiian shirts so of course, I had to try that.
this the first time I have painted a combover.
Johan Rumbleguts is an ally of my Golddigger clan - as he is approximately wearing their colors.
