Reaper Bones Cthulu thingy.

Such an interesting model to put together.  After a few years of building AFVs, to suddenly be confronted by a plethora of writhing tentacles, it was a bit different, to say the least.

But nicely the reaper kits all seem to be constructed so that each part has a differently shaped lug to go into a specific socket.  You can jam or wedge tentacles into the wrong hole if you want, I suppose.

It does need and will, before painting, get LGS around the gaps.  If you click on the pics (stealing Inso's phrase) you can see that a lot of the surface detail is eyes.  Nice.  I've just seen Lord Halfpenny's plague toads, so that looks like it could be a way to go for the painting.  PVP's advice for animals is to always use real world examples, but erm, this doesn't really look like a cow.  Or Crocodile or anything else for that matter. 

With the tank for scale.  It's certainly big enough.


  1. Kill it with fire!!!!!
    Is one of your officers dabbling with Chaos?

  2. Now THAT's a Greater Spawn! Haven't seen that sculpt before, but I like it a LOT. Chaos just isn't right without tentacles.

  3. Nice, love to see that beast painted. It looks dangerous.
