The forgotten Cthonian

Whoops I seem to have forgotten to post this mini I painted back in October for the LAF Old School Painting Party.

So here goes now:




This is an old metal Cthonian aka Carnivorous Worm, from the Call of Cthulhu line made by RAFM co. I bought it back in the day, and for some reason I thought it would be appropriate for the Old School Painting Party. I entered is as since we used many of the Call of Cthulhu minis in our AD&D campaigns back then, as I thought of it as an old school fantasy mini. Of course, it is not actually a fantasy mini so it got pulled. Which is fair enough and perfectly fine by me, as I already had entered other minis and now there was more room for another entrant.


It is painted in less than an hour or so entirely by drybrushing up from a black undercoat. No washes or layering used.

The base is bespoke 3D printed and measures 85x60mm.


I believe this miniature still is available from RAFM.

  1. This looks great, I would never have thought it was drybrushed only. Nice colour combinations and transitions.

  2. Agreed with Subedai – and a great example of how well drybrushing can be used against all of the people who love to poo-poo it.
