Just finished off a new Wizard for Frostgrave, rumours are he doesn’t like hearing his name repeated three times…
As is appropriate for this blog, its The King In Yellow, possibly.
In the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game published by Chaosium, the King in Yellow is an avatar of Hastur who uses his eponymous play to spread insanity among humans. He is described as a hunched figure clad in tattered, yellow rags, who wears a smooth and featureless “Pallid Mask”. Removing the mask is a sanity-shattering experience; the King’s face is described as “inhuman eyes in a suppurating sea of stubby maggot-like mouths; liquescent flesh, tumorous and gelid, floating and reforming”
Again this appealed to me not only because of the links to this blog, but because a bright yellow would help the figure and its minions would stand out amongst the ruins.
This wasn’t the first time I’ve painted this figure…
Hmm, ok photo bucket is not playing ball, I’ll update this post once it is !
A typical Cultist I did about 2001, in brown and red.
And this was the original dolly used, that was the Lone Wiolf Helghast figure, again in boring red.
I think the latest version works better.
Now all I need is to do up a cultist war band. In mellow yellow yellow…
