Happy New Year

Wow. It’s already three weeks old.

Amazing. But time flies when you are working all the time. Things have been nuts, I worked every day from Jan 5th to 18th, then literally slept all day on the 19th. My Lovely Bride woke me up when she left for work, and I went back to bed and slept until she got home.

Good grief. So, obviously, no Hobby work has been done this year. Or blogging.

But I have been shopping! I just can’t seem to get motivated to finish the musicians, so I picked out some cool Cthulhu figs at Crucible Crush:

Cthulhu Arkham investigations #2

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear. And the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

H.P. Lovecraft

I’ve been a Cthulhu Mythos fan forever, and have recently been reading The Book of Cthulhu, a collection of stories from other authors in the Mythos. So I have been thinking about a new project that I can get motivated to work on, and here it is.

The box contains 10 figs, bases and the Gate of Yog-Sothoth with a translucent green resin roiling ectoplasm that begs to be backlit!

For $50 it’s a great deal. I am not sure if the offer is still on, but at Christmas-time when I ordered if you bought all three boxes you saved a dollar on each and got free shipping. Sold!

The Deep Ones look like they’ll paint up nicely, lots of detail and expression.

The models are very well done, with only minimal flash and not much in the way of mold lines. I like the variety of poses and the fact that the ladies aren’t “sexy”, so they look more “real” and have more character.

With any luck it will be warm enough to prime these tomorrow and I can get started o them this week.
