In amongst some pics from the Dust stand at Adepticon this year I came across this - the reflection off the case obscures it a bit, but it looks like a statue of Old Squidly - or perhaps in 1947 Cthulhu offended the wrong mob boss & ended up as part of an overpass...

(So does anyone know what this actually is, anyone go to Adepticon?)

I didn't think Dust had a Lovecraftian slant, unless they are pushing for a crossover with Achtung! Cthulhu?

Prolly something related to this:

The slab would make a nice idol of the Great One for any period Lovecraftean setting.

Good catch tnjrp, I'd forgotten about the AC crossover & yes, it'd make a useful scenery piece.

Just found out what this scenery piece actually is - Dust is producing a Cthulhu cult line for Christmas. It's supposedly going to contain cultists, small & (very - the footprint of the large vehicles & 7-8" tall) large creatures.
 Lets hope there's no Kickstarter on this one.

The announcement was made by a representative of Dust on the Beasts Of War site:

   beastsofwar.com/dust-1947/dust-1947-coming-2017/

The Cthulhu faction seems to be part of a triple release which includes an Imperial Japanese Navy faction (which is apparently in some way linked to the Cthulhu one) & a Vril aliens one.
 While I don't play Dust I have found some of the minis useful & these certainly could be.

Hopefully Dust 1947 stuff becomes more widely available in Europe (other than the brexiting bitz) ere those come out.

The anticipated Cthul[Dh]ust mashup appears to be somewhat imminent:
