It's time for some slime. 🀒 When playing around with the gluegun i noticed little slime-like piles forming everywhere. The Yuggoth map from Cthulhu Wars also uses Slime monsters ☣ as an extra game element. So i made me some aswell. When the glue was hot i pressed it in with some spherelike object to create little craters πŸ” in the piles of glue. Painted the craters dark green to contrast the outer shell which i painted light green. The glossy spray varnish makes it shine real nice. . . . #diy #analoggames #bgg #boardgame #boardgamegeek #boardgames #bordspel #brettspiel #game #gamer #games #gamin #gaming #gaminglife #gamestagram #geek #geeks #giochidatavolo #instagaming #instagamer #j2s #juegosdemesa #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #cthulhuwars #cthulhu #lovecraft #kickstarter

Cthulhu Wars πŸ¦‘, the incredible asymetrical 'dudes-on-a-map' game a la Kemet. It has bigass dinosaursize miniatures with loads of expansions. Alas i couldnt get my hand on any of them. I only own the basegame and decided to make loyalty cards for all the new Priests, Great Old Ones and Monsters πŸ‘Ή myself. There was a template readily available so i only had to create the silhouettes πŸ‘€ and fill in the texts. I printed them on good quality paper, sprayglued them on a thick piece of cardstock and cut then out. They are quite sturdy! I use miniatures from games like Mansions of Madness, Doom and Descent as a replacement. They blend right in! . . . #diy #analoggames #bgg #boardgame #boardgamegeek #boardgames #bordspel #brettspiel #game #gamer #games #gamin #gaming #gaminglife #gamestagram #geek #geeks #giochidatavolo #instagaming #instagamer #j2s #juegosdemesa #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #cthulhuwars #cthulhu #lovecraft #kickstarter

Recreated 2 Shoggoths from the Mansions of Madness to be used as Faction monsters for Cthulhu Wars πŸ¦‘. Started out with some steel wire and bent it into a shape. Then covered the whole area with some simple painters tape. Now that the area was covered i used my glue gun to glue the whole area. The tentacles and little eyes i added later on. Then spraypainted it with a primer and did a quick paintjob. Now i have 4 Shoggoths πŸ˜„ . . . #diy #analoggames #bgg #boardgame #boardgamegeek #boardgames #brettspiel #game #gamer #games #gamin #gaming #gaminglife #gamestagram #geek #geeks #giochidatavolo #instagaming #instagamer #j2s #juegosdemesa #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #cthulhuwars #cthulhu #lovecraft #miniatures #miniature

I found this demon figure in my old He-Man toy collection. Turned out he was lost, he was a Blackstar demon. He was in terrible danger do i decided to give it a new name and identity, Dr. Apocalypse of Yuggoth. I created a pedestal base with my glue gun and attached the demon to it. I then did the old spraypaint, paint and highlight trick. Now Dr. Apocalypse can spread doom and terror as a minion of evil in Cthulhu Wars. . . . #diy #analoggames #bgg #boardgame #boardgamegeek #boardgames #brettspiel #game #gamer #games #gamin #gaming #gaminglife #gamestagram #geek #geeks #giochidatavolo #instagaming #instagamer #j2s #juegosdemesa #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #cthulhuwars #cthulhu #lovecraft #miniatures #miniature

Wanted to try out a new expansion for Cthulhu Wars πŸ¦‘ and decided to make the parts for the Tcho-Tcho Faction myself. I started out with some generic green plastic soldiers. I selected the smallest ones and clipped their guns off. I used a lighter to melt the plastics and sculpt a robe, a hood and a book to transform them into acolytes. Used the glue gun again to create some bases and stuck the acolytes into them. After spraypainting them i used the iconic pink paint, a nice addition to the core game colors. . . . #diy #analoggames #bgg #boardgame #boardgamegeek #boardgames #brettspiel #game #gamer #games #gamin #gaming #gaminglife #gamestagram #geek #geeks #giochidatavolo #instagaming #instagamer #j2s #juegosdemesa #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #cthulhuwars #cthulhu #lovecraft #miniatures #miniature

In an earlier post i showed the loyalty cards for the Cthulhu Wars πŸ¦‘ Independent Great Old Ones. To use them you also need their Spellbooks which you can unlock during the game. I created the front and backside of all the spellbooks as PDF in Photoshop. I then sprayglued them on 5mm cardstock. Next step was to cut out πŸ“ every individual piece and round the corner with a scalpel xacto knife. To finish i used tacky/hobbyglue to attach the backside of each piece individually so you can position it and the stars just right. The last picture shows the difference between the official loyalty/spellbooks and the ones i made. . . . #diy #analoggames #bgg #boardgame #boardgamegeek #boardgames #bordspel #brettspiel #game #gamer #games #gamin #gaming #gaminglife #gamestagram #geek #geeks #giochidatavolo #instagaming #instagamer #j2s #juegosdemesa #tabletop #tabletopgame #tabletopgames #tabletopgaming #cthulhuwars #cthulhu #lovecraft #kickstarter
