I'm pretty sure this figure holds the record for fastest time between being bought and being painted. I bought it Wednesday at Brookhurst Hobbies and it was finished Thursday morning. And I really like this mini but I do wonder why sculptor Michael Brower decided to portray Cthulhu as a Giger-esque Alien wearing a mask.
The Elder Sign on the sides of the plinth was picked out in Vallejo Polished Gold, a new colour I bought last week. I've been slowly replacing my Army Painter colours with Vallejo paints but for some reason this is the first Vallejo metallic I've bought. I will definitely be getting more.
This view shows that the back of the wings aren't as green as the rest of the body, which came as a surprise to me. I should have noticed when I glued them on. Guess I'll be plastering even more Green Tone over them at some point.
For a plastic figure, especially a softer Bones one, the definition is pretty good, although I could not fix the slightly wonky wings and just gave up. I did think about picking out the runes on the wings in gold, but consigned that thought to the dustbin. To be honest I don't have the patience, and all I could foresee was having to clean up errant metallic flakes.
Here's the shrine with some cultists who appear to have forgotten their sacrifice. As you can see it's taller than a regular mini, meaning it gets to hang out on a shelf with Tracy and QT instead of being in my display case. I used my new autumnal grass/leaves mix on the base. If goes like my cork phase it'll be covering every base from now till I run out.
