Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.296: The Mighty Cthugrosh, Lord of Cthul!
More Mythos Miniature Madness today with the Mighty Cthugrosh, Lord of Cthul! All two inches of him/her/it.This comes from Privateer Press' (now discontinued) pre-painted miniature game of giant stompy robots battling giant slimy monsters, Monsterpocalypse!, in which the Lords of Cthul were the now-requisite-in-gaming Lovecraft faction. This predated del Toro's Pacific Rim by a good few years, and indeed Monsterpocalypse! was optioned for a movie to which apparently Tim Burton was attached. In any case, this is a rather nice mini - it makes a change form the more traditionally-anthropomorphic sculpts you tend to findvwith Cthulhu minis these days. While the prepaint work is actually rather good, I'll be rebasing, repainting and repurposing this as replacements to the awful Star Spawn of Cthulhu sculpts found in the 2nd edition of Fantasy Flight Games' Mansions of Madness.
