It took a loooooong time, but finally it's painted : my Cthulhu Tyrant is done. I'm very happy with it, it's a terrific monster, with some worrying features (mouth on the belly, strange barrels on the back) and massive triple claws for arms and tail. In my idea, the tubes spit barbed stranglers (seeds are in sacs on the side under the carapace and feed the cannons by 2 tubes), and the tail includes a devourer. The mass of tentacles feed the belly mouth with terrorized victims.
I love this model because it's the fusion of two of my favourite monsters : The Great Cthulhu and the Tyranid Hive Tyrant.
Please browse the tyranid album 2 for more pictures and WIP shots.
Feel free to express yourself and comment the beast !
Next is a reduced version of this one, to make a Cthulhu Broodlord.
