Bestial Wars Q'Thulu painted

Publié le 28 Juillet 2017 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Hi my fellow tentacle-lovers !

As promised, here's the painted version of Bestial Wars' Q'Thulu.

Assembling and painting this model reminded me of the beginnings of wargame and role-play miniatures (my first dragons, and the amazing balrog from Citadel :') !), since it's full metal, no plastic or resin parts besides the base. That model is big : 12 cm high (and Bestial wars is a 12 mm scale game !)  and is very heavy, so pinning the wings was mandatory !

Old model, but modern ways to buy it, since it was the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign.

But really love that old-school flavor anyway :)

Figone resin Cthulhu painted

Publié le 21 Juillet 2017 par Hellric

Hi there, between Cthulhu Wars games, I found a little time to paint this little bugger. Way worse than Allan Carrasco of course but i think it does the job anyway ;)

Now working on Bestial Wars' version :  "Q'thulu" ! Check original model here.

Cthulhu Wars strike back, Onslaught 3 preview

Publié le 10 Juillet 2017 par Hellric dans Cthulhu, Miniatures news

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I was quite enthusiast about the tabletop game from Mr. Sandy Petersen himself, I mean « Cthulhu Wars », and now I have some exciting news to share : 
There’s an Onslaught 3 coming, still through Kickstarter as the 2 first editions.

content of this 3rd wave of products is :
- a new complete faction : the Ancients
- new acolytes, each faction has its own design for the acolyte
- new neutral entities : « masks of Nyarlathotep » : Bloated Woman, Dark Demon, Shadow Pharaoh, and « beyond time and space » : hounds of Tindalos, Wamps

- aaaaand, last but not least, a brand new sculpt for my alltimes favorite Great Old One, the Dire Cthulhu ! This sculpt looks more agressive and elaborated, with a crustacean-like armor, 3 pairs of eyes, sharper claws. 

Check here all these pretty monsters, wouldn’t you be kind enough to offer them a sweet home ?

Expect a release for june 2018, the Kickstarter campaign should be live soon, but i'll keep you informed as soon as I know the date for the launch !

Cthulhu from Go Native Toys

Publié le 20 Avril 2017 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Here's my painted version of Go Native Toys' Cthulhu. Very crisp resin cast,parts fit perfectly together, choice of 2 big scenic bases that can be combined. This very cool model is 14 cm high without base. It offers a very unique take on the great old one, very aquatic looking, and the "tentacle" theme is not only on the head but also repeating along legs,fingers, tail, feet. 

I really love this one and warmly recommend it to tentacle-loving collectors around this world and others ;)

Great Cthulhu statue - Halloween Forevermore

Publié le 25 Mars 2017 par Hellric

Hey folks, here's the latest addition to my collection of cosmic horrors :)

As announced earlier, I bought Halloween Forevermore's Cthulhu Statue, and here it is.

The model itself is very massive and has a nice presence on the shelf, and though it's not as sharp and detailed as statues from Sideshow, it's still interesting because of the original design, very aquatic looking, and the price is also half the one of Sideshow's models. So I'm very happy to have this baby in my office.

I also got the model from Figone and it's already assembled. Can't wait to paint this one !

Figone Cthulhu kit, by Allan Carrasco

Publié le 18 Mars 2017 par Hellric dans Cthulhu, Miniatures news

Just a quick one to share a find : famous French painter Jeremie Bonamant-Teboul has released a very cool Cthulhu resin miniature (68 mm high) for his miniature company "Figone", sculpted by the artist-sculptor extraordinaire Allan Carrasco.

I ordered immediately this one, not only because i'm an addictive collector of all Great Old One related stuff, but because his take on it is very strange and disturbing : it's unusual to have 4 arms and a weapon, the head is full of randomly placed eyes, yet the pose of the hands is very "human" like, it has a bulbous back. Though I won't manage to paint it 1/10th as well as Jérémie did, I can't wait to throw some paint on it !

Winter is going away ! :)

Publié le 17 Mars 2017 par Hellric

Hi guys, so here in Belgium, winter is slowly moving away so I'm awakening from my creative hibernation ! I'm also helped by some exciting miniatures coming : the Tzeentch models from GW rocks, love the Primarch Magnus and the Lord of Change and can't wait to see the upcoming Fulgrim for sure I'll need those. Then I got my War demon and Fallen Angel from the Creature Caster Kickstarter, but that's 2 years late ! So please think twice before backing up something on Kickstarter unless you are insanely patient ! Then I ordered a Cthulhu Statue from Halloween Forevermore, a small business run by a fellow Belgian who emigrated to the States 30 years ago, check it here : https://www.halloweenforevermore.com/product/cthulhu-limited-edition-resin-statue/ And last but not least, I found yesterday a very cool resin kit of my all-times favorite great old one : http://gonativetoys.com/kitz_cthulhu.html I think my first jobs will be painting this one and the Tentacle and Teeth exclusive Cthulhu miniature. Stay tuned and f'thagn !

Winter is going away ! :)

Cthulhu 🐙 using "Pride" from The Others, Seven Sins

Publié le 28 Décembre 2016 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Hi there, it's been long time since I painted something, sorry for that !

But now i'm enjoying winter holidays and so I finally did the conversion I wanted to do for such a long time, using the figure of "Pride" from the game "The others, Seven sins". 

I was relieved to get the models (it's often quite random with Kickstarter, you never know :/ ) and also happy to see that the tentacled wings I planned to use fit perfectly to the model for the size but also for the look, with all those suckers along the tentacle-like structure of the wing. Those wings come from "Gluttony" from Raging Heroes, oh and yes, that's another sin, two sins are actually included in one model ! 😈

Just went for the classical greenish Cthulhu scheme with distinctive color for the suckers. I used matte varnish but it seems it's too old and turned very shiny, but I like it like that, looks more slimy and disgusting ! 😊🐙

To end this latest article from 2016, I wish you all a very nice New Year's Eve and a very inspiring, creative 2017 !

Great Cthulhu - sculpt by Paul Komoda

Publié le 27 Juillet 2016 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Hi folks,

My garage kit from Gecco Corp, Paul Komoda's Cthulhu, is now painted. I went for a very classical great scheme with blueish reflections in the wings. I'm happy with the model but only problem was that the claws were not very sharp and regular so I didn't manage to paint them as neatly as usual...

But a fantastic piece of art anyway, one of my favorite depictions of the Great Old One ever : must have for Lovecraft fans !
