Hivefleet Cthulhu, Tyrant progressing

Publié le 27 Juillet 2008 par Hellric dans Tyranids

I'm relieved today, my cthulhu tyrant has now his main shape, all details are nearly done as I planned. So it's time for a little teaser before painting the beast. Final assembly of the arms and wings will be after painting, so I can easily paint all the details.

I've added many tentacles on the sides of the ribcage, at the end of the spore mine's tentacles, where I hac cut it from the base. The king of egg sacs on the side are ammunitions for the two back mounted cannons, feeding them by a tube each. 

Arms have "hands" composed of 2 huge blades and a small one, the tail also has a 3- bladed design. The end of tail is an old Battlefleet Gothic tyranid fighter.

I'm happy, because I think this is without a doubt a tyranid, but also a Cthulhu.

SOTA Nightmares of Lovecraft 2 - previews

Publié le 25 Juillet 2008 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Action-figure.com has posted pictures of the San Diego Comic Con 2008, where SOTA has unveiled new pictures of their upcoming Nightmares of Lovecraft, second serie. The previously shown Cthulhu is now painted and we have a tentacled thing, it could be a Dark Spawn of Shub Niggurath or a shoggoth, but 
probably Nyarlathotep, I mean one of his 1000 forms ;)



Troll Forged Miniatures - Alien

Publié le 20 Juillet 2008 par Hellric dans Miniatures news

Here's my last miniature of the first batch I've done for Troll Forged Miniatures of my friend Hivetrygon. This is an alien, which could be used as typical "grey" or as some kind of broodlord.  I painted it grey because I wanted a link to the famous "greys" aliens :) Then the ribs in purple because the ribs screamed for another color, and this is also a color evoking genestealers.

If you want to discuss about this and much more, see previews and the huge progress made by Hivetrygon, join us on the Trollforged Forum.

This model is for sale on the Trollforged online store.
I'm currently working on the Cthulhu Tyrant, stay tuned for more cool stuff and updates in the next days.

SOTA Toys Ultra Cthulhu resin statue

Publié le 6 Juillet 2008 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Some time ago, I've been blown away by SOTA's Nightmares of Lovecraft first Cthulhu...

But now, this is clearly a level higher, SOTA did even better : more than 4 kg, 33 cm high with a wingspan of 50 cm, a resin body with flexible tentacles, premium paint, and base, number 441 on a total number of 470 exemplars...
The design and details are awesome, you can feel the ancient evil and supreme intellect, malevolent and wise at the same time. You know it's a water creature due tu the squid tentacles on head and tail, and even as sex and fingers, the side snail shapes on the head, coral reefs on the back, scaly body.
The eleventh Cthulhu in my collection is definitely a masterpiece ! I'm really amazed to have it.

Now it's for sure : the Great Old One doesn't sleep in his sunken city of R'Lyeh anymore... he's coming to take over our poor world :)

Ïa ! Ïa, Cthulhu F'thagn nagl ! 

Bandai Movie Realization Evangelion EVA-01 Test type

Publié le 4 Juillet 2008 par Hellric dans Mech & robots

Here's a new model in my collection, the EVA-01 test type from Evangelion anime, made by Bandai for their "Movie realisation" serie. It's all plastic but it has a great poseability and the alternative armour is a real plus compared to the many other EVA's. Very nice for a sweet price (got it for 33 $)
