Mortals beware! The earth quakes beneath the feet of this horror from 10,000 leagues! I created this ancient deep one for Realms of Cthulhu. The basis for the model is the Ghoul King miniature produced by Reaper Miniatures. Using two part epoxy putty I sculpted fins on the limbs and back. I created a blubbery fish finned neck to support a head swap using a growler head from the now defunct Vor miniature game. This is a great example of why as a miniature painter you should not throw any bits away. You never know when they will come in handy.

With the conversion finished I painted the flesh with a base-coat of P3 Trollblood base mixed with P3 Necrotic Flesh and Vallejo Black. I layered on progressive highlights by brightening the color with more Necrotic Flesh. One area of note is the fleshy meat that this monster is devouring. Massive trauma such as removed limbs are messy and do not lend themselves to a uniform layering. Instead, I used GW Mechrite Red layered with Vallejo Flat Red in the deep muscle, and the parts that might be torn flesh got a mix of P3 Midlund Flesh and GW Blood Red (just a tiny bit) built up with more Midlund Flesh and Vallejo Pale Flesh. I glazed the whole piece with GW Baal Red, and GW Leviathan Purple and GW Devlan Mud (in the deepest recesses). Finally, I gloss coated the monsters teeth and the “meatsicle” to give them a sickening shine.

Now to go devour some investigators!
