CoC updates and Warmachine

The Call of Cthulhu (CoC) fever continues...

I have finished reading three of H.P. Lovecrafts's stories thus far. They are as follows: The Call of Cthulhu, The Shadow over Innsmouth and the Mountains of Madness. I enjoyed all the stories, especially the mood and setting of the Mythos.

I have purchased the CoC roleplay book for a good read and more importantly background for my 40k army :)

This is one hefty book with lots of background and info on roleplaying. The publisher is Chaosium Inc. and the excellent tome is very well written by Sandy Petersen and Lynn Willis et al.

Interestingly, I also found a pic for my DoC 40k HQ. I shall call him a starspawn as described in the book ha!

Thats him above posing with his entry in the CoC book ;)

Deep Ones updates..

Managed to do a batch of ten Deep Ones with spears.

They will be my counts as Plaguebearers Troop choice. I have 30 more to go lol! More sushi to come. Just have to await the minis on order.


I managed to get me hands on a box of Retribution of Scyrah Houseguard Riflemen. I really liked the sculpt as they reminded me of cute little white mice. Specifically the Pinky and the Brain cartoons lol!

Side View of RoS Rifleman grunt.

Front view.

Back view.

I painted him up as a test model, and tried to follow the color scheme on the box as closely as i could. I really like the all poses given.

Am still contemplating whether to use 5 of the 10 Riflemen for my Eldar Iyanden Army. I reckon they would look great as Rangers or Pathfinders, all painted in golden yellow and blue of Iyanden.

Righty o, thats all for now :))


  1. Pinky and the Brain.
    Pinky and the Brain.
    One is a genius, the other's insane...

    But really, I like the sculpt of the rifleman too. I'm sure they will be a great addition to your Iyanden army man. Go for it =)

  2. Yeah man! Thats the song haha! You remember it too :D

    Will try a rifleman model in Iyanden colors then, and post a pic laters ;)

  3. WARMACHINE!!!! welcome to the dark side!
