The Shoggoth is from Reaper Miniatures. I suppose he is intended for 28mm but he'd be a pretty small Non-Euclidean horror at that scale. About the size of a large dog maybe?

It's Alive!!!! But I thought it would be bigger?

 In 15mm though he's far more frightening.

                                        "Which part should I mount as a trophy?"                                              "Maybe we should run away first and talk about it later, Sir!"

Nothing really fancy going on with the paint job other than putting some gloss varnish on the green bits and the slime trail on the cobblestones. I resisted the temptation of making all the green things eyes and went for more of an energy look. I thought it would look a little less cartoony that way but I'm not sure now if I made the right decision.

I'm going to try to find a couple more similar figures though. I'd really like one in a more vertical posture, rising up to attack something. Maybe if I can't find anything I'll sculpt some of my own.


  1. Now that is a curious miniature, love the slime trial.

  2. Thanks Michael, definitely odd but more or less in line with
    Lovecraft's description. Although I don't remember if he mentioned colors but I'm pretty sure slime was in there!
