Cthulhu and Tsuthoggua

There's a need to get on with more Newhaven stuff, especially the major monsters. On that basis, had a go at painting up Cthulu and Tsuthoggua. My problem with these is that I'm never sure how to do - colour schemes I've tried in the past just never looked right.

This time, though, I'm actually happy with the results!
In the photos, Cthulu looks better than Tsuthoggua.

Tsuthoggua looks better in 'life' - perhaps I should have turned the model to one side slightly? The figure is by RAFM.

Virtually all a matter of layer upon layer drybrushed. Tsuthoggua is a difficult subject because of the fact that descriptions vary. A 'lazy' god, this one will probably not do much in the way of direct evil, but lots in the way of directed evil.

Not sure who made this figure - I thought it was RAFM but not in the RAFM catalogue. Doesn't seem to be Mirliton either.

Probably (certainly?) the best known of Lovecraft's creatures, this one should definitely cause mayhem in it's own right - but this could mean the end of the world?

At the end of the day, the question is always going to be: 'Do you read Sutter Cane?'


  1. Nice work... the Cthulhu is by Grenadier, now manufactured by Mirliton.

  2. Thanks - couldn't find it on the Mirliton website, found it now - listed as a 'Hell Beast'.

  3. Ah, very a good way? LOL
