Crom Cruach

You just had to take two monsters and make an even scarier one didn't you?

 

Awesome conversion!

Well painted.

this is delightful! 

look out third kids.  too much fertility is a bad thing! 

I keep trying to find the seems, and failing.

Cheers for St-Patrick! That's an unholy divinity, how can the fertility god demand sacrifices. These pagan stories makes no sense. :huh:

You did an amazing job on this celestial aberration conversion. Did you use ink to paint it or only regular acrylic paint?

Made from the "Mashaaf" and "Great Cthulhu" figures, here's my interpretation of Crom Cruach, the Celtic fertility god who demanded the sacrifice of a third of the children and whom St.Patrick allegedly vanquished:

Is there something you know that you aren’t telling us?  Back under the bed with a flashlight and broom for me.

 

Great work as always, I like how you created the mottled skin look.

 Well, that would certainly explain why the Irish Catholics are famous for having ridiculously large families....

      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.

      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.

      I decided to do a quick prime of my kickstarter minis. Creatures on blue /green spectrum got grey primer, and those that are fleshier got a mix of yellow & brown primer and a drop of craft red because I had it handy.
      No idea when I can next paint. Already did a good job obscuring some details.

      When I first started painting minis about a year ago, I was pretty broke. Mini painting is not an easy hobby to support when you're broke, especially when starting out. I didn't really play any tabletop games, I sure as heck couldn't afford GW models, and I wasn't yet aware of Reaper. To cut my teeth, I kept an eye out for cheap board games with pieces I could practice on. I stumbled across a half-price copy of Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu from Z-Man Games. While the minis included aren't really intended for painting, they were good enough for me, and once I'd gathered a little toolkit and some inexpensive paints I eagerly got to work on my slapdash painting training program.
       
      Pics in the thingy!
      I started out with the player characters...
