Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

Mwah, ha, ha ha.

"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming." Only he ain't dreaming now.



 Dive, dive, dive

I think the Nautilus may have bitten off more than it can masticate on this occasion, when it investigates a new island that has just arisen out of the Pacific.




Captain Nemo puts the pedal to the metal -so to speak.




The Nautilus gets away.

This is a big reaper Bones mini in 28 mm, retailing for the very reasonable price of £30. The casting is excellent and everything went together smoothly with just a little milliput to fill in the joints.


Although I did have to boil him a bit to straighten one of his legs so it fitted the socket in the base.


I decided on Humbrol spray slime green as an appropriate base paint and added dark green wash and lemon yellow highlights.

  1. That is massive, I doubt I would ever get it to the tabletop myself.

    1. Makes a good terrain piece if nothing else. Or I might use it in Age of Sigmar. All massive models.

  2. "That is not dead which can eternal lie, yet with strange aeons even death may die"

    Nice beastie :)

    1. Dear Tamsin,
      I recall translating that line into Latin for Mr Derleth in the '60s, even before I started writing for him.

  3. Lovely work, or should I say Suitably Squamous work!

    Always enjoyed the mythos, and I rather like what you've done with good ol' Cthulhu!
