From PaulS: 28mm 'Qu-Sh-Ug' Monster (8 points)


From PaulS: 
This time we've got one, large beasty to terrorise the other entries with. This model, a Qu-Sh-Ug, is from PureEvilMinuatures and was funded through their kickstarter last year. Sadly it is not available to the general public though  which is a real shame as I want another one!  You can see some great versions over on their Kickstarter page along with some scale shots towering over one of their 28mm figures.
The kit consists of three major parts, the body and both front legs, plus a metric ton of tentacles to customise your nasty however you wish. All of the examples had different numbers of tentacles coming out of the mouth, but I decided to be different and turned one into a tail instead as it seemed to balance out the reaching paw. 
Painting wise he was a joy thanks to all the fine texture in the skin. This took a few layers of drybrushing, followed by a series of different washes to target specific parts of the model.

This guy is pretty darn awesome.  He reminds me of how I feel after a day in which I've skipped lunch.  I love the colours Paul's chosen for him, especially that turquoise for his veins and soft tissue. A very cool figure. I would have joined the Kickstarter if I'd realized that he was destined to be a limited edition figure. Oh well, you snooze, you loose.  

This stout fellow with his great gnashing teeth will give Paul 8 points. Nice one.

  3. Nice painting Paul. As for the figure, the pose makes it look like a dog shaking paws or a child raising their hand to answer a question

    1. It looks less like a shaking paw when he stands facing someone else: http://mythostransmissions.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/qu-sh-ug.html

  4. Reminds me of a girl I dated in high school. Fortunately she didn't have blue gums.

  5. Whoa, he is a nasty bit of business. The double rows of teeth are pure genius. You did a great job on that skin. What colour did you use on his mouth?

  7. Dang, shame it is exclusive as I wouldn't mind 4 or 6 for my scifi troops to hunt down/ be hunted by!
    Brilliant choice of colors and nice brush work! I could almost see him blending in to derelict ship corridors or a decayed alley, providing he doesn't drool too much!

  10. The choice of colours is really great, I think the Blue gums really make this beast seem otherworldly. A Nice Job indeed.
