Paranormal Investigators: Doctor and a what?

Just a couple more figures to round out my paranormal investigation/Ghostbuster/Elder things collection. The first figure is a doctor from Reaper's Chronoscope range (No. 50257 Dr. Thomas Welby.) I'm renaming him Dr. Modot Brooks.

Why "Modot?" Because on my way to Kansas City a few weeks ago, I saw a sign along the highway telling me to "Fasten your seatbelt, because Modot cares." Modot, of course is Missouri Department of Transportation, but it sounded like a fantasy evil overlord (who at least "cares.") And since this figure represents an evil character in my upcoming roleplaying game, he inherited the name.

This other figure - I simply cannot remember what it is called. The figure came from a past Frothers United sculpting contest. The theme was Cthulhu figures for playing Cluedo (Clue here in the U.S.) aka: Cthluedo.

I kept the paint simple- just a few quick layers of light blues and a couple layers of purple- all drybrushed.


  1. Both figures look very good, but the worm headed fellow gives me the hibby jeebies!

  2. I agree, 'Modot' is a great name for a nefarious character. Great work on him. I also like the blue/purple effect on the 'Cthleudo'. Well done!

  3. That creature makes me think of the alien that came out of the trunk in Stephen King's "From a Buick 8"... creepy!
