GREAT CTHULHU 9/18/2005
I'm still actually working on this guy!
In order to more easily manhandle the figure I decided it was time to mount it to something sturdy. However, this is one heavy bastard, and I just didn't trust even two-part epoxy to hold him down. Besides, if I used a
glue that could hold him, how would I get him off the painting rig for basing?
I decided to drill a hole in the base between his feet and secure the whole thing to a wooden disc with a 1" wood screw. This is holding him down just fine. I had to peel his claws off the bottom of his feet first, or
the pressure from the screw would have straightened them out, or snapped them off in a bad way.
Now that he's easier to handle I did some detailing on the shadows, worked on the wings some more, and added a little more definition to the details on his arms and gut.
Not too much progress, but after three years this is warp speed.
