“But Carter preferred to look at them than at his captors, which were indeed shocking and uncouth black things with smooth, oily, whale-like surfaces, unpleasant horns that curved inward toward each other, bat wings whose beating made no sound, ugly prehensile paws, and barbed tails that lashed needlessly and disquietingly. And worst of all, they never spoke or laughed, and never smiled because they had no faces at all to smile with, but only a suggestive blankness where a face ought to be. All they ever did was clutch and fly and tickle; that was the way of night-gaunts.”

H.P. Lovecraft, Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath



This was a fun miniature to convert and paint

all in all it did not take much work and i am hugely impressed by the overall look. it may be a bit bigger then most people think nightghaunts to be , but i allways imagined it big enough to lift a human or a moonbeast off the ground, and having enough muscle to actually hold them, and lovecraft never comented on the size of a nightghaunt as far as i know 😀

also here is a progression picture

Night Ghaunt WIP

I picked up a Reaper Bones Mini called ” Mortar the Gargoyle”

and thought it will make a great Nightghaunt ( as i dont like any of the models Available)

also the Reaper Bones Minis are great choices for converting!

So i removed the face, addet some horns from an old Khorne Champions head and addet a tail

It came together in a great way
