I went miniature hunting the other day in the city of Brisbane. It was raining lots, and i happened to stop for shelter. I was right outside Ace Comics Shop. Went up to have a look and was pleasantly surprised to see that they carry a whole range of miniatures, as well as one of my fav ranges--Reaper :)))
Needless to say, i spent some quite time there and bought a few miniatures. The largest mini ;P that caught my eye bore a really close resemblance to the Lovecraftian mythos creature Cthulu.
I was kinda inspired then to build a 2K point Fantasy demons army on the cheap :)
Using the 'Cthulu' mini as a Lord character, i had my HQ done (still thinking in 40k terms lol).
I have started painting it and though still WIP here he is:
Still not sure what color for the eyes. Am also considering highlighting its swirly tattoos with a bluish glow.
This side was easier to paint as it was raising its armpit hahaha!
Front view of the monster.
Back view, still awaiting for paint to dry before another highlight. The base is small than the normal monster bases. I'll probably mount it on the bigger base at a later stage.
Right, so for my core units, i will be taking 3 units of 15 to 20 Plaguebearers (to be renamed Deep Ones).
The minis i plan to use will be the Lizardmen Skinks. They come in lots per box and will be easy to convert. Just add lips, and fish tail fins via greenstuff ;P
Will post pics once i get my hands on some skinks.
The Rare or Special slots will be filled with 2 units of 2 Beasts of Nurgle (will be renamed Shoggoths). These can be easily made from greenstuff as Shoggoths are just jelly blob like monstrosities with quite a few eyes :)
Am painting a 'Herald of Nurgle' as well, also using a Reaper mini. Pics to follow as well soon.
