coleopterous Yithian – Dreamblade Beetleback-Mass Repaint

Beetleback mass repaint

Another Lovecraftian repaint ??…why Lovecraftian, well besides that a huge entity build entirely of Bugs is lovecraftian on its own i had to think of the following quote when i saw the model !

There was a mind from the planet we know as Venus, which would live incalculable epochs to come, and one from an outer moon of Jupiter six million years in the past. Of earthly minds there were some from the winged, starheaded, half-vegetable race of palaeogean Antarctica; one from the reptile people of fabled Valusia; three from the furry pre-human Hyperborean worshippers of Tsathoggua; one from the wholly abominable Tcho-Tchos; two from the arachnid denizens of earth’s last age; five from the hardy coleopterous species immediately following mankind, to which the Great Race was some day to transfer its keenest minds en masse in the face of horrible peril; and several from different branches of humanity.

—H. P. Lovecraft, “The Shadow Out of Time”

so to put it in normal terms the great race of yith transferred their minds into futurebugs ! And in the RPG a  each individual member of the Great Race corresponds to 2D4x500 “beetles”. So i allways had a picture in my mind of some giant flock of beetles

The Dreamblade mini suited this very well….its kinda sad that all the Detail of the original model can not be seen due to the fact that the colours are brown bith a bit more brown
