Great work - but man, they are creepy!

Fantastic work!

 

The Dark Young's paint scheme is my favorite.  It's exactly the way I pictured it, but I had no idea how to make it work.  That's a lot of great detail and colour for what is, essentially, a black paint scheme - great work!

 

The original paint schemes for the Mi-Go and Grave Wailer work very well, too - I think it's fine to go with your instincts over the text on the colours of Lovecraft's monsters anyway - after all, we are getting those descriptions from unreliable narrators with judgments that can be very safely questioned since most of them at best barely saw the monsters, and at worst are raving maniacs!

Thanks! The Dark Young was my favorite of them to paint. It's a great model and trying to use multiple shades of black was a challenge. The colors I used for the blacks were Reaper MSP nightmare black, true black, swamp green, Walnut brown, and ritterlich blue.

Very cool and I love that you tried to match some of the vague descriptions provided by various maniacs over the years through Lovecraft.

But, but... what about my favorite solstice carol: "Freddy the red brained mi-go?"

 

good work on these.  I do like the dark young and the mi-go best

Loooove it. I'm working on a "Witch coven" scenario (it's a long shot, because the "Tree of despair" from Bones IV will be part of it) but a piece like that as something the witches summoned will look cool. Could you give me an idea about it's size?

It's approximately five inches tall to the top of the tentacles.

Poor Argentee, painting all these unspeakable horrors seems to have unhinged her.:;,;:

 

Well, she did an amazing job, anyway.:winkthumbs:

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."

      Ahoy, my dream enemy! Have at you!
       
      Also, this one will be a part of the Kings of War Nightstalkers army.

      Working as a gibbering mouther for me. I wasn't impressed with the model when I originally saw pics online, but in person it is fantastic and very imposing on the table.

      A nice walk in the park for the Lovecrafts.
       
      Sorry about the pics being a bit blurry, I am still struggling with the camera. It seems it is not meant for such small items.
       
      Most of the miniatures are from a recent 2019 kickstarter by Bear's Head Miniatures, apart from the large Star Spawn that is from the game Cthulhu Wars by Petersen Games. One of the kickstarters for that game had an option for one each of the miniatures extra, and this one is from that set. I hacked off the moulded base it originally came with so I could have similar style bases for the whole family.
       
      Lots of pics and such below, go on, you know you want to click it:

      I have been working on my contrast while painting- 
       
      I love this sculpt!
       
      This was shot with 2 different lighting setups- which one does everyone prefer?
