Hordes "Everblight" Cthulhu finished

Publié le 31 Mai 2016 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

You've seen the unpainted model a few days ago, now here's the painted miniature... It was speed painted in one day, no pretension here, I just wanted the model to be done as soon as possible. Anyway I think it's cool , a nice Cthulhu model using only Hordes parts, making it very coherent, looks like a true Everblight terror !

Now working on a big project, more very soon ;)

I also wanted to ask you, if you have ideas about a Cthulhu inspired miniatures, let me know, I'm very motivated at the moment :D

Surprise miniature ! Tyranid Tyranthrope !

Publié le 25 Mai 2016 par Hellric dans Cthulhu, Tyranids

Two weeks ago, I made some cleaning and sorting in my office, and I found tons of unused and forgotten miniatures parts, among them a lot of tyranids, and a particular one attracted my attention : a Malanthrope from Forge World.

Nice body full of tentacles, but nearly no limbs, looking too "kind" to my taste, so I had the idea of making a Tyrant from this body. I used a head plate from a Zoanthrope so the creature has a proper Tyrant head, made it more gribbly by adding small Zoathrope arms as mandibles.

I had the "walking" legs from my flyrant left, and these were the perfect size, but I had to find a suitable pose to use them, so I rotated the torso with the tail to the front instead of the tail to the bottom.

Next I found some Reaper Bones wings of the good size, just added the Malanthrope hands on top of them so they look more Niddy.

As the tail points to the front, I added the end of the tyrant's tail, so it looks more aggressive and more like a Tyrant.

And last but not least, I needed 2 claw arms, those of an old lector were perfect, so that's it !

Let's call this a "Tyranthrope" since the insane Hive Queens of Hivefleet Cthulhu had the idea to mix Malanthrope and Tyrant DNA !

The model was painted quickly in 2 weeks, so no WIP this time, just the finished creature. I'm very happy of it, it looks coherent, with my little "Cthulhu" touch, and with a nice pose, as if he was cornered by powerful foe but well decided to counter-attack... Enjoy !

Great Cthulhu using parts from Hordes Everblight, assembled

Publié le 25 Mai 2016 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

So I got the parts this week, the Angelius and Heavy Proteus arrived and the assembled model came quickly as I was eager to get it done.

Main body is the Heavy Proteus, with added Angelius wings and a venoms dart at the end of the tail, coming for; a lesser gribbly Everblight monster.

I removed the small arms of the Proteus because Cthulhu isn't supposed to have 4 arms. Thanks to the green stuff for this model, there was some gap filling well needed here despite the overal good quality of the models.

I tried to add the smaller wings on the shoulders but it was a bit overkill and too "crowded", so I removed them finally.

Here's the final model, awaiting his paint :)
