Cthulhu Wars Gets a Toothy Grin

May 29, 2013 by dracs

The Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath have appeared for Cthulhu Wars, a writhing mass of gaping, tooth filled maw and tentacles. Gotta love Lovecraft.

The Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath

Out of all the Cthulhu Wars miniatures we have been show so far I think that this is probably my least favourite. The mass of tentacles and gaping jaw are great and very menacing, but the spindly legs beneath them leave it looking a little cartoonish and ill proportioned. But when you are talking about Lovecraft monsters that’s not necessarily a bad thing and the sculpt does seem to capture the essence of the creature described in the original stories.

What are your thoughts on this? Does it do the monster justice?
