Dawn at St. Toad's Mere.
The worshipers gather by the dolmen.
With scroll and orb, bell and blade, chalice, keys, and tome.
But what manner of worshipers are these, so pale and clammy? And why does that one's hand bend so?
Is that...is that an arm, or something else?
Lo! a foul miracle! They have become as their unwholesome master, transmuted into a kind of glory through their dark rites. Some still retain hands, or things in the semblance of hands, the better to wield tools built by and for hands, but others have transcended or transgressed beyond even these. Soon they will renounce limbs and spines altogether, shed their robes and live to writhe and squirm beneath the mire with their lord forever.
These are fantastic fellows--something about their eyeless fleshy heads makes them even more enigmatic and eerie than your average illithid. What are they up to? and what will their rituals bring upon the troubled earth?
For all your eldritch cult needs. Could work as an alien species in a pinch.
(The cultist with the dagger does not come with a bell; that's a repurposed earring back and pin.)

I hadn't planned too, but I've reposted this here on the advice of Glitterwolf, as the WIP forum doesn't tend to see as much traffic. It is a little scenic backdrop that I have been working on over the past 3 weeks, an old smugglers cache that was abandoned decades earlier when an ancient horror took up residence in the old sewer tunnels. For the ancient horror I used Reapers 'Spell Effect: Shadow Tentacles (SKU: 77367)
Vastly different to the sort of scenes and terrain I normally build, but it came out ok in the end.
Setting the Scene
Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.
'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains.
The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden.
However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured.
In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.'
Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster.
I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
