After painting a lot of FoW stuff i wanted to paint something else. Because i am a great Call of Cthulhu fan i painted up some CoC miniatures (that hide in the shelf behind many other unfinished things).
Unfortunatly my camera is really cr*p. This is the only picture that shows more than some big colorfull bubbles.  :(


It shows the well-known Reporter "Knüller" Malloy of the Brentford Chronicle. This is the last picture taken of him before he disappeared while investigating in Innsmouth. The base is still unfinished. I haven´t decided yet in which style i will make them. Suggestions and comments are welcome.

one of my favourit CoC figs, look really nice! But that's not  "Knüller" Malloy! That's me, the editor of the BoB Times. Look here if you don't believe me:

Dear Prof. Witchheimer,

after your latest visit in Arkham Asylum - were we talked about your multiple identities-  I came to the conclusion that you need my help... very urgent !

Rugland,
 nice job.  forthe bases, are you doing most of your tabletop gaming in one type of location?  If so I would let that dictate how the base is done.  For example, in my swashbuclking set up, I am cutting the bases off the figures and mounting them on new bases that have the same texture wood floor as the tavern.  granted when they go out side it looks a bit silly, but they will be inside most of the time, so it wont be too bad.

Is there any reporter you won't bribe to go work for the BoB Times. :)

Thanks for the nice welcome. I will provide more pictures when i find a way to make better ones. Right now i am painting some Rafm Deep Ones. But i need more then just 3 different. Are there more companies makes Deep Ones or -much better- some more or less mutated Innsmouth folk?

I am just painting the first of the RAFM packs. The second looks great, too. Strangly i have never seen the second one before.  

They all must be mine!  :love:

The Reviosco ones look strange... Well, ok. All deep ones look strange, but these look to much fish like for my taste.

Thx, Professor for putting them together.

Rugland,
  I had seen another icture of the depp ones from Revisco and I think they look more like "gillmen" than deep ones.  

I'll stick with the RAFM, and jsut make some conversions

But, the other day I could have sworn I saw some humanoids that were tinated by Deep ones seed.  they had scarves and such covering their faces.  Does this ring a bell with anyone?
