I remember when, during a dungeon crawling AD&D session a lifetime ago, we entered a part of the dungeon where the corridors were spotlessly clean but for a sign saying “Meet the Cleaner” or something to that effect. And a transparent, quivering wall moving towards us at speed…
It ended badly for our party even though the Gelatinous Cube was defeated in the end, it’s acidic jelly eating away at all our armour and favorite equipment, leaving our party drastically reduced both in capabilities and hit points going foward.
And at last a proper miniature of such a Cube!
Made in clear translucent Bones.
I 3D printed a custom base for it, 8 cms in diameter. The middle piece is a part of the Cube and consists of a bottom “plug” and leftovers from some of the Cube’s earlier meals.
The Cube it self is hollow and can fit a miniature inside completely!
I tried for an oilslick rainbow-ish effect on the cube, dribbling on an assortment of inks and quickshades and then dabbing at it with some tissue paper to prevent too much colour pooling. I just wanted a hint of colouration to stain the clear rubbery plastic.
An experiment, but I am rather pleased with the results. Apart from the orange/yellow being a bit too strong.
