Oh, this is exquisite. I'm always here for Lovecraftian monsters, but you have knocked this one right out of the park. Genius scheme.

Many thanks Rigel. I didn’t have much luck with the SOL and the more I look at it I see I got the dark and light of the bioluminescence reversed on light vs dark areas I think. It just seemed to work, so it’ll make a cool underwater Big Bad for a campaign I’m planning :)

Work indeed it does, and I am highly interested in this aquatic campaign! Would love to see more crafts from this world.

      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.

      Wish I'd taken more in-progress pics here, but when the muse strikes...

      Anyway, I got my hands on some figures from Bombshell's Counterblast, specifically the Edofleini faction. Could be described as BRAIN SQUIDS FROM SPAAAAAAACE!! (I assume you read that with the reverb turned up.)
      Decided to use the color scheme from this lovely shot of a coconut octopus:


      These were the paints used for the bodies; AP Toxic Mist plus some turquoisish Reaper sample paint was used for the suckers, and AP Greedy Gold for the jewelry and weaponry. Also used AP Kraken Skin for the leader's mini-cape. Seemed appropriate.

       
      Blue-black tentacles, eventually shading up to the rusty Astorath Red.


      A touch of color for the accessories and suckers: 

       
      Then a great amount of drybrushing in shades of orange and yellow. I wanted the siphons to be the brightest points. 


      I feel like they are close to done--should I add another coat of red wash, or use something darker?

      I painted this around 9 months to a year ago and am just now getting up the courage to start posting some of my minis. This one I'm pretty proud of. My photography skills on the other hand could use some work.
