And in the air about him were great viperine creatures, which had curiously distorted heads, and grotesquely great clawed appendages, supporting themselves with ease by the aid of black rubbery wings of singularly monstrous dimensions.

—August DerlethThe Lurker at the Threshold

 

 

Time for a critter that seems a staple of the Call of Cthulhu game.

 

Amusingly, most of the depictions, including the Grenadier and RAFM sculpts of the creature ignore the  "grotesquely great clawed appendages" line. I'll keep with this tradition since I think not having limbs keeps the creature more "otherworldy".

 

Took a coated copper wire and started wrapping newspaper around it. The wire will let me shape the critter as I want later.

Used masking tape to make a skin to bind the newspaper.

Measured more wire to make the wing base

Drilled through the body and ran the wire through

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      These two were made out of hot glue and given a quick paintjob by my sister and me. I like how they look and I made 4x medium and 8x small ones the same way. Will post them too when painted If you like these! :D

      Here are 4 twisted wire trees I made. Three of them use moss from a craft store package, one used Woodland Scenics foliage. They all use Vallejo Earth Texture, Woodland Scenics scrubery, and Army Painter Lowland Shrubs. 
       
       




       
      Here is is an average wizard under a tree for size reference:

      I have some minis I want to pin (or attempt to, have never done it before). I have wire, tons of paper clips, and am going to acquire some brass rod soon. But my question is about the clippers. I know I shouldn't use my sprue cutters for most things beyond plastics, resin, and other things like those. 
       
      So my question is what kind of clippers (cutters?) Do I need to cut the metal bits down to size? I don't want to ruin my good clippers by cutting something too hard. I saw some in the jewelry section at Michael's but wasn't sure they'd hold up in the long run since it said it cuts soft wire and thread.

      Our Own Glitterwolf posted a photo in my Last Hurrah Thread:

       
      I loved it. I knew I would have to make a version of my own (there were some liberties taken...a lot of liberties). 
      Once more I had the base all ready for her...or some other hapless miniature. AND here is the result:

       
      There you go.
