RAFM, the venerable Canadian miniatures company who amongst other things are known for their long-running selection of Call of Cthulhu miniatures, had a kickstarter for a reinvigorated line of Call of Cthulhu miniatures some time ago. The KS did rather well, but RAFM ended up loosing a fortune due to selling the minis in the […]Read More RAFM Dimensional Being
Picked up a random mini to do today. Whatever a “Chthon” is… It looks like a cross between a rattlesnake and a facehugger, so I did a rattlesnake pattern on its back and facehugger fleshy colour, Yeah, forgot to take a pic of the back. Argh, 77228: Chthon Reaper Bones KS2 Bonesium PVC 30mm […]Read More Random mini: Chthon
Reading through the Shadows of Brimstone: Caverns of Cyder otherworld expansion I got in the wave 1,5 shipment, I see that they have made Cynder-versions of the Hellbats called Lavabats and the Hungry Dead called Restless Spirits. Which prompted me to look at what I had left of the extra set of sprues I got with […]Read More Shadows of Brimstone: Last of the Stranglers
Some time ago I came across this lovely little gem for sale second hand on a forum. I just had to have it. Y’Golonac the Great Old one, The Defiler, The Lord of Depravity and Perversion… Originally from one of Ramsay Campbells short stories, this is one of the few great old ones that […]Read More Y’Golonac, the Great Old One
I took some time out to join the Lead Adventure forums Weird Wars painting club with a nazi zombie. All I had to do as a registered member of the forum was to paint up a single mini and post it to the board before entries reached 100. So here is the #089 Studio Miniatures […]Read More For the Lead Adventure forum Weird Wars painting club
After the big Harbinger demon, time to unwind with some smaller demons: The last two out of the three Hordlings from the second Bones Kickstarter. These were experiments with differently coloured inks, to compare the effects vs the transparent ones. Here is the first one, that I painted last year. Just for completeness sake: […]Read More Reaper Bones Hordlings
Nazi Zombies are the perfect villainous mooks. Last year I bought a set of plastic ones off Ebay. They were slightly smaller than I expected, but good quality with good detail. I only got round to building two of them, just to try. Now I have painted them as well. Will do the rest […]Read More Not just zombies, but Nazi Zombies!
I have not had the time to paint or hobby these last few weeks, because I am about to move house. This involves a fair deal of painting and remodelling work in the old one to make it ready for sale. But today I managed to grab a couple of hours. Semi-random mini of the […]Read More Why is that pile of bones moving about?
For some obscure reason the model “77115 Shoggoth” by Reaper features a big globe in it’s middle, as if it is on it’s back. It’s as if the sculptor started with a marble and tacked on some tenatcles with eyes. Don’t get me wrong, it is a nice, Lovecraftian model, but i find the marble […]Read More A Cosmic Horror, or: the smallest scaled model I have ever painted.
Continuing the series “The Unspeakable Mouth”, we come to the Bones 77114 “Faceless Horror”, a Lovecraftian Monstrosity if ever I saw one. Not anything like a D&D Gibbering Mouther on steroids at all. This …thing, is all mouth. And eyes. Many, many eyes. (read that in Commandant Lassards voice). I put it on a 60mm […]Read More The Unspeakable Mouth, vol III
Once upon a time I bought some monster miniatures in metal for Call of Cthulhu, made by RAFM. For some reason or other, I only ever got around to building and painting two or three of them. Well, I think I know why. They are in really hard metal, have horrible mould lines, and to […]Read More The Ancient Shoggoth
