New project, Cthulhu star / Chaos Spawn using Maggoth Lord kit

New project, Cthulhu star / Chaos Spawn using Maggoth Lord kit

As I told you earlier, I had another conversion in mind with the new Nurgle releases for Warhammer : this time I'd use the Maggoth Lord's mount, that would make a great Cthulhu-inspired chaos spawn, so it can also be used as Star Spawn of the Great Old One.

I've chosen the model with a mouth on the belly and the poison spitting head for the 2 venom glands it has; then I removed the rider, covering the saddle with Green Stuff, and I copied the texture of the beast, with bubbons. I added a tail from a manticore, wings from a Jabberslythe, and the tentacle head from Reaper mini's Kraken. Bestial and misshapen look, perfect for a spawn, isn't it ?

Now it's ready to be painted, so stay tuned for this, it shouldn't be long...

A few words about the coming months : I'll show my take on the GW chaos spawn kit soon, then I have ideas for 2 more Cthulhu models, using a river troll and also the upcoming model from Studios McVey's 7 Sins (Pride !). Expect also some tyranid stuff with a mix of Toxicrene and Haruspex, plus a revamped 2014 edition of my first Hive Queen... also my 2 kick starters : Cthulhu Wars minis should arrive, followed by Creature Caster's demons. OMG so much work, I'm crazy !!!

My son's first Cthulhu, Star Spawn from Grenadier

Publié le 28 Décembre 2014 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

While making my new conversion (The Glottkin one), my elder son asked if he could paint something, so I found that this old, classic Star Spawn from Grenadier, would be a good start to learn some basic techniques. So he learned basecoat, shading, highlighting here. We had a good time painting together, father and son.

He's very happy to have his first Cthulhu, and so do I, because it looks nice, especially considering the small size of this mini (+/- 5 cm).

So he's walking on the same way as I do, already looking forward tp paint more monsters, especially dragons.

GW Glottkin as Cthulhu / Nurgle Daemon Prince, finished !

Publié le 23 Décembre 2014 par Hellric dans Cthulhu, Chaos & Demons

It's over ! After 2 weeks of intensive painting, my baby's ready, and I dare to say : it rocks !! :)

There is an insane amount of details on this miniature : horns, claws, worms, skulls, eyes, bubons everywhere, but it was really fun to paint, using the Citadel shades.

For your information, the model is 20 cm high and has an impressive 27 cm wingspan.

I'm very happy of how the model looks , the conversion really works for me. Too bad my pictures don't do it justice.

Anyway I hope you'll enjoy this one as much as I do, and also that it might inspire you some cool conversions : this kit has a huge potential !

Next one will be another Nurgle/Cthulhu conversion, this time using Maggoth Lord kit.

Cthulhu Wars, version française

Sorry guys, this article is for French speaking people only ;)

La campagne Kickstarter a démarré pour la traduction du déjà célèbre Cthulhu Wars de Sandy Petersen. Dans ce jeu de plateau avec figurines, vous incarnez l'une des factions des grands anciens pour vous disputer la terre, rien de moins !

Le jeu a connu un franc succès dans sa version anglaise - j'attend d'ailleurs la mienne avec impatience - et maintenant nous avons la chance d'en avoir une version française.

La campagne est dores et déjà financée mais il reste pas mal d'add-ons à débloquer...

Tentés ? alors c'est par ici : Cthulhu Wars VF Kickstarter
