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
From the depths of SPACE, they came!
A menace unlike any the Solar System had yet seen! Their weapons--inexorable! Their strange mental powers--UNCANNY!
Bombshell's Counterblast line has a faction called the Edofleini. Can't prove anything, but I feel strongly that the designer had read David Wiesner's "June 29, 1999" at a formative age. The Edo are giant-brained cephalopods with zap guns and psionic powers, and if that doesn't tickle your fancy, perhaps a Space Squid has used an Emotive Transductor to suck all the JOY and WONDER from your heart? (They can do that, you know!)
I couldn't resist, anyway. Tried to give them a color scheme inspired by this coconut octopus.
Here's the four-eyed leader of the bunch, in its magnificent robe of office.
The gold-armored subordinate with Neural Halberd:
A vicious enforcer, tentacles flailing:
A four-eyed underling:
And a runtish Spawnling:
And here's a group shot!
Keep watching the skies! Guard your brains! ARE YOUR THOUGHTS YOUR OWN, CITIZEN?
Ever so many more pictures below if you click:
Update: a very sizeable BRAIN SQUID, also Bombshell. "Destroys Nulls" is here to eat softshell hypercrabs and subjugate inferior intellects, and buddy, it's all out of hypercrabs.
So here's three more, just quick drybrushes but I think they are good enough for my dnd table. Hope you like them too!
First one is an umberhulk:
The second one is also an umberhulk I guess (painted by my sister):
The last one is a gorgon, simplest paintjob but effective I'd say:
