Ph'nglui Mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

In a slight departure from the normal historical posts, here is a few photos of a Great Cthulhu miniature I painted a while ago (I've had a busy weekend so far, so no new painting done...). I think it's either by Reaper Miniatures or RAFM, I don't seem to be able to find it again on the interwebs, but I'm sure someone can identify it for me...

I have been a lifelong fan of H.P. Lovecraft and his writings, so it was nice to paint up one of his creations even though I will not be using it as a gaming piece.

However, Ninjasaurus Rex and I have been talking about developing a Cthulhu on Mars skirmish game (you can also see a second one in the background, this was painted for a friend).

Easy and fun to paint, it was just a few washes over a base colour then several layers of dry brushing.

Short and sweet, now with added Eldritch Horror, thanks for looking!!


  1. Beautiful work, love the "colors" and the eyes!

    1. Cheers Phil, the eyes were painted flat red with a tiny spot of yellow in the top corner to give an impression of 'life'. I'm glad you liked it!
