Frother's Cthluedo figure
I don't what this one is called, but this is one of the figures from the Frothers forum sculpting competition from last year; the theme was cthuhlu mythos figures for use in a Cluedo-type game.
This one was straight forward: I only used three triads (all Foundry paints) - Storm Blue, Yellow Ochre and Bay (?) Brown. I also inked the yellow to help better define the tentacles.
Other stuff: I discovered (through Kings Miniatures blogspot) Proxie Models bases. These look fairly interesting -- something a little different than the usual lipped and/or slotta bases. They seem to be a lipped base but with a much more shallow aspect topped with a little more area on the top to allow more space for scenery or for those wide-stanced figures.
I've ordered a couple packs of bases to check'em out. I'll let ya know.
