    No sir, you can never have enough Cthulhu. lol


    Someone offered me cash for Cthulhu already. Anyone know how much the model will cost or if it's going to be sold in the store?


    Looks like $39.99 from the preview gallery. http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/latest/77194


    Nice job and I may never paint mine now because I have no clue where I would even begin. I guess the first step is to actually finish L2PK1 and then go on to the next until I feel I am ready for the challenge.



    It really isn't that hard. Just start with a color. In my case, Peacock Green. Build from there. I Got the large areas painted with one coat before I started even looking at the others. I.E. Wings, Armored Spots, Spines, Etc. Take it slow. I powered through mine because I somehow found inspiration and time to get it done. I've taken longer to finish models smaller than my pinkie finger. It's honestly easier when you can see the details so clearly. I almost didn't need my magnifying headgear. lol

  2. Thank you, I worked hard to get him top notch quality! :)


    As far as the tentacles I will admit they were a pain the first try but I am not afraid to get a little paint on my hands. I used a technique I have had to do before on semi-flexible surfaces that involves running my finger along it in front of the brush to stabilize it and at some points just holding it. Once you get to the base of the tentacles it's not so hard and until then just put a finger on it to keep it semi-steady. When I was dry brushing them it actually worked in my favor to make them look messy.

  3. He's finally done, I can move my WIP to completed.


    Primary Color: Peacock Green, drybrushed Grass Green and IMEF Olive

    Highlights: Alien Goo

    Claws & Spines: Tanned Leather, Oiled Leather, Muddy Brown, Yellowed Bone

    Armored Skin: Tanned Leather, Brain Pink, Oiled Leather

    Beach: Yellowed Bone, Tanned Leather, Brain Pink

    Stone: Stone Grey, Alien Skin, Fresh Blood, Gore Read, Neon Pink, Alien Goo

    Face: The rest as the body with Sun Yellow and Alien Goo

    Wings: Peacock Green for the Metacarpals and Phalanx, Brain Pink, Tanned Leather, Oiled Leather, Tanned Leather & Fresh Blood for the veins.


    So my final thoughts on this model are this; I don't like the pastel version on the box. Honestly I view Cthulhu as a slimy green otherworldly entity. His primary colors should be darker but the pastel version shows off the details of the model more. That's most-likely why they painted him that way on the box. He wasn't a bad model to paint but those freaking wings were terrible, I lost some serious sanity doing those. Anyway, thoughts? Suggestions? Sanity loss?

    EDIT: Honestly, looking at the pictures you can't see the variations on my last skin dry brush. I may mix some Grass Green and Alien Goo and give him another light dusting.
