FitzBones: Gug

Recommended Posts

Here's one of the Cthulhu Mythos creatures from Kickstarter III, a Gug. I really don't know what that is; I've played a bit of Call of Cthulhu from time to time, but never come across one of these. I suppose I could look it up, but I'm lazy.

      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.

      Here's my version of Reaper's Dark Young for all you Cthulhu fans out there, though for me it is a Portal of Despair from my Swampstalkers army :)

      "Great Gods!  I'd rather be
      A cultist suckled in a creed outworn
      Could I but see Cthulhu rising from the sea
      or hear old Dagon blow his wreathed horn."

      (With apologies to William Wordsworth)

      A desolate piece of grey coast on a very particular day in November.

       
      The hour is right. The signs are right. The stars are right. 
      A pulse of sickly green light, far out to sea. 
      An hour passes, then two. It takes even one of the High Priest's blood a while to ascend from the crushing black depths.


      Then, a boiling. A bubbling and a heaving of the waters. With a great splash, vast flabby webbed wings break the surface, followed by a most awful head. 


      Brine cascades off its greasy hide in waterfalls as more and yet more of its colossal bulk emerges.


      So, now. The summons worked. But did the binding?
      Foam churns around its loathsome feet as it strides up to the shore. 


      (Cultist is played by 59039, Deadlands Noir Occult Detective.)

      The Nolzur's Star Spawn is one heck of a chunk of model! Very good detail; good placement of clear water and primed plastic. Some places were NOT EASY TO REACH, but it turns out those wings pop right out of their sockets if you bend and wiggle them a bit. Found that out by accident. They pop back in pretty easily, too, so that helps a lot. 

      Water is mostly GW blue and green contrasts mixed together. Takes a lot of time brushing back and forth before it adheres properly to the translucent plastic. A drybrushing with ivory white gets the foam caps. 
      Skin is mostly a base coat of AP Disgusting Slime graded with darker greens. Irregular rings of Reaper Ancient Oak and Reaper (sample internal-organ pink) provide some contrast; there's a lot of canvas and it needs variety. 

      Decided to make my other Reaper spawns match the scheme. Eldritch demon, 77113, and Darkspawn Minion, 03438b. 
       
      Alternate summoning:



      And an as-yet-unpainted Great Cthulhu piggy bank that is about the right scale for the O.G. G. O. O. 
      Towering over the horizon, blotting out the sun--classic Cthulhu stuff.

      Yet another of my entries in a painting league on another forum
       

      Pride and Joy
      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:

      It this yesterday because it gives me a nice in-between mini from my reaper eldritch demon and my Cthulhu.
      This is about 90 minutes


      Lots of inaccessible spots and texture which makes painting not fun. Will be making this shorter than planned as a result. Everything will get a flesh wash. I'll do some eyes and claws, then a medium and ink wash of the clear plastic water.
