The end is near. I hear a noise at the door, as of some immense slippery body lumbering against it. It shall not find me. God, that hand! The window! The window!

You saw my preview of this model earlier. Well, it's finally done! When last you saw it, Cthulhu was mostly done except for his wings and his base. Now, the whole model is complete. It was tremendously fun to work on. I especially had fun working on the veins in Cthulhu's wings. Those were a nice touch. The Reaper Bones mins, at least the large ones, continue to be fun to work on.
Here's the base that I've put him on, from Secret Weapons Miniatures. Interestingly, the only problem I had was figuring out where to put his feet! The whole base was just so cool, it felt bad to cover up any part of it. The whole thing was easy to paint. Just some dry brushing to get the details out. Dry brushing white onto the maggots was done so that they would appear distinct. Of course, the rune stone that Cthulhu is stepping off of was original with the model. Just had to saw it off of his original base.
One more note - primer! It was advertised that you didn't need to primer your Reaper Bones minis…. I have now found that not to be exactly the case. The Bones plastic is flexible. So when it bends, paint which has dried will flake right off. The dry paint simply doesn't flex.
You can see the result of this below. I'm going to definitely have to coat it to hopefully affix the paint to the plastic. The paint hasn't been flaking off of the rest of the mini, so I think you're only in danger on the flex-y parts. Anyhow, be warned! Primer your Reaper Bones unless you're in a hurry!
