May’s Villains Drop Unboxed

May's Villains Box is a fun one, featuring the miniature Cthu by RN Estudio. This villain is inspired by the popular Cthulhu mythos from Lovecraft and is stood imposingly with his mighty wings arched behind his back. A very cool model indeed! We wanted to create a diorama with him that made it look as if he had just been summonedd by loyal cultists.

In order to do this, we included in the box a Sacrifical Altar by Reaper Miniatues. This large stone base with an altar in the middle was the perfect platform to stand our tentacled villain! To add to the base, we also included a trio of books from Tabletop Art to look like the tombs out cultists used to perform the evil ritual.

Finally, we wanted to show our susbcribers how to paint the spectacular wings on Cthu, so we picked a trio of green paints by Gamescraft. As an extention to this tutorial, we showed you how to blend purple into the green for a really great monster skin effect.  The Painting Guide containing this tutorial can be downloaded from our Patreon Channel here, which contains all our past Painting Guides in digital form for just $4.
