One more Great Old One : Octopus God from Khurasan Miniatures

Publié le 23 Avril 2011 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

In my neverending quest of collecting Cthulhu-related miniatures, I've found this new release from Khurasan Miniatures, the Octopus God from the Eldritch Horror series. I don't know why they didn't call it Cthulhu, but this is obviously it ! :) 

It's a nice grey resin kit, measuring approximately 11.5 cm from the feet to the top of the wings, without base. It's a small version of the brilliant version from the sculptor Shaungent from Devian Art. This kit is part of a 15 mm miniature line called "Eldritch Horror", which is related to Lovecraft's writings and the Cthulhu Mythos. All the fundamentals of the concept are here but the way the artist created them is interesting and quite original.

I painted it with Citadel Paints (base in foundation paint, use of the new inks), I'm happy with the colour of the tentacles, which is a mix of elf flesh, orange and warlock purple with a purple ink. 

So here is the beast, I'm happy to have this nice addition to my collection :
