Cthulhu Wars miniatures

Some new miniature paint jobs for the Cthulhu Wars board game.


Hastur itself for the Hastur faction. I chose to use green lizard -like eyes for this faction to enhance the faction’s sense of alienness to human mind.

Acolytes for the Hastur faction. I chose to use the same purple on the acolytes as I used on the Hastur beings throat and gums to tie in the faction with colours.hastur_acolytes


Ithaqua for the Windwalker faction. The faction thrives on cold weather and ice so I chose to manifest this by using ample amounts of fake snow and ice crystal effects on the faction’s miniatures and bases. windwalker_ithaqua

The only earlier miniature paint work for the Cthulhu Wars board game were the Great Old Ones of Cthulhu and Shub-Niggurath presented on the miniature painting page.

 

 

 

World Eaters Land Raider – The Taxi of Kharn the Betrayer

This time a little bit something for the Chaos forces. This is the first Land Raider I’ve put together and painted up. I’m not a fan of the endless spike parade usually associated with 40k Chaos forces and thus I opted to leave them out from this model. While painting I tried several new techniques including enamel wash paints by AK Interactive and enamel effect paints such as Engine Oil and Engine Grime by AK Interactive. Most of the work is by pigments (I use a combination of Vallejo, AK Interactive, Mig and Kromlech pigments). The rust effects are accomplished using Vallejo Oxid Paste resin which I diluted and painted with a broken brush. The dust and mud are done with Vallejo Brown Earth resin paste and touched up with pigments.

I learned a lot with this miniature.

Arkham Horror / Mansions of Madness investigators

Well. Arkham Horror is the long time favorite game of mine and my active group of players. It’s the “go-to” game when the novelty factor from various other games wears thin. Luckily the investigator figures from Mansions of Madness can be used in Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror, Elder Sign and of course Mansions of Madness, so painting the investigators seems like a wise move.

Here’s a group shot of investigators finished so far:

A batch of new True Revilers painted up

Here’s a batch of new True Revilers miniatures painted up.

 

True Reviler Terminators
True Reviler Terminators. I got a group o 10 terminators. All of them are built from left over pieces found in a bits box. I built 10 and plan to deep strike them using a homer beacon available to scout sergeants. All terminators are magnetized (feet for basing and hands for weapon choice variety).
First two scouts - a sniper and sergeant with a missile launcher. I plan to have at least 2 sniper scout teams.

Cloaks of the scouts. Cloak models from Victoria Miniatures in Australia.

I  posed the bike in such a way that only one tire touches the ground.

The marine driver is removable although I don't think it fits anywhere else. Backpack is magnetized so it can be switched to other backpacks.

The front small dozer blade was a left over piece ... comes from the Ramshackle Games' wide range of pieces if I recall correctly.

I plan two squads of 5 bikes having one assault bike each. This way I can take the bike squads as troops choices when using a HQ character riding a bike.
