    Some fine guesses but no, maybe another hint will help...

    That's not the Dunwich Horror is it?
    Then suddenly I saw it. With only a slight churning to mark its rise to the surface, the thing slide into view above the dark waters. Vast, Polyphemus-like, and loathsome, it darted like a stupendous monster of nightmares to the monolith, about which it flung its gigantic scaly arms, the while it bowed its hideous head and gave vent to certain measured sounds. I think I went mad then.

    Nope.

    Not a straight up Lovecraft story, just inspired by one.....

    One more pic, this should blow the lid off, part of it is inspired by a pretty memorable image....



    What do you all think of this Thing?


    Edit: Thanks, Tzen! Another of my favorite movies there.

    Heh,

    Wish I had posted when I saw the image a few days ago, as the original one is burned into my brain

    Good reference - can't wait to see the mini. One of my favourite films

    @ Blackcherry: I will never be able to unsee the imagery from that movie, amazing, compelling, horrifying, stuff that still holds up today!

    The movie I was trying to hint at is the 1982 John Carpenter classic, The Thing. Itself a remake, this movie reinvented practical effects and body horror even though it tanked at the box office (it was released shortly after E.T., two very different takes on visitors from outer space).
    I had read, years and years back, that the production of the movie (and, I am assuming the 1951 original, The Thing from Another World) was loosely inspired by Lovecraft's 'At the Mountains of Madness'. The Thing is based on another ahead of its time book 'Who Goes There' by John Campbell Jr, wich was published only two or three years after 'At the Mountains of Madness' was. I like to think Campbell was influenced by Lovecraft's tale but there is a very good chance that he had never heard of him, sadly Lovecraft never achieved popularity in his lifetime (although he went on to be one of the most influential horror / SciFi persona of all time).

    I could go on forever about horror / SciFi, I blame Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    Anyways, the goal is to replace the three Beasts of Nurgle from page 1 with five Things to serve as Chaos Spawn. Blair, Bennings, Norris, Split Face, and, of course, the Dog Thing.
    I am of course limited by the parts I can acquire, size requirements, and my own sculpting skills. As such, the end results are more "inspired by" than exact replicas.

    Here's my first shot at Blair Thing:



    More 'inspired by' than anything. The pink part is a plastic spider toy that came in a bag of stuff to hand out to Trick or Treaters. I LOVE incorporating found items into my work, again I blame Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    Awesome. There's nothing more fun than making chaos spawn, and that guy is sweet.

    I especially like the ribs jutting out (assuming those are ribs?)

    Thank you! Agreed, Spawn are great as there are no wrong answers, you can really let the creative juices flow and have fun with them.

    They are indeed ribs, I believe from the Vampire Counts line, maybe Direwolves? That could be all the Games of Thrones I've been exposed to lately talking, though.

    I imagine the chest cavity opening up, the ribs spreading and creaking open like some horrible, old cabinet, the awful that is inside springing out like some sort of wet, contagious, jack in the box.

    This pic is a few days old now, I've done some more. And there there are his four friends. More pics soon, thanks for looking!

    Blair Thing with a little more greenstuff:

    I think Mr Blair Thing looks most happy with his life choices.

    Bennings Thing:



    I wanted a Thing Spawn that was just a mass of tentacles and Bennings was the closest that felt right. This is more in reference to the scene where they find his body being assimilated than the one where they burn him in the snow. Again, I'm taking a lot of liberties, like all of the black orbs that are going to be eyes. More pics soon, thanks for looking!

    Those are very cool!

    If you like The Thing, you may be interested in reading the blog about behind the scenes production of the film, written by one of the key producers themselves.

    The Original Fan

    It's a great little blog that details exactly how the events that lead The Thing into such cult status happened and what some of the key changes were between the original shoot and Carpenter's reshoot.

    Very nice! Well, I have two more movies to add to the Netflix queue. Those spawn are fantastic looking. A few questions though. What is the pink material from Blair Thing? For your greenstuff work, which is awesome, how are you making your textures - specifically the non-circular indents? the flat end of a spatula perhaps? Also, what are the black dots on Mr. Bennings? micro beads? Anyways, I cannot wait to see more of your work

    Re: It's on Random: a mostly Chaos Space Marines PLOG

    Thank you and great news, you are in for a couple of treats. The "It's on random" quote is from Shaun of the Dead, the first 'Romantic Zomedy'. An absolute brilliant film. The 1982 Thing is my favorite, but the original is very good if you like old, black and white movies. The more recent prequel isn't bad but the others I feel are stronger.

    The pink material is just a little toy spider that's been floating around the house since last Halloween. I clipped the legs off (those will turn up again at some point...), filed the face down, and pinned it to the legs. Blair Thing's chest is the hollow underside of the toy, I wanted to stuff it with tentacles and such popping out.

    As for the green stuff, I have bought tons of tools over the years, but I always come back to the first I had ever acquired. I think it may be a clay sculpting tool, it is on permanent loan from my high school. *does math* Yikes. I'm sure if they haven't missed it by now..... Anyways, I'll include a pic of it in my next update. It's wooden with two metal ends, one similar to an arrow head and the other more of a curved hook. It's super useful.

    The black dots are all pin heads from my wife's sewing collection, I'm not sure if they have a specific name. Clip them to length, drill a hole, and you're on your way. I'm going to add greenstuff lids and work them into the body more. I just thought it would be off putting to have something covered in eyes and tentacles charging at you, I'm really looking forward to painting them!

    @ LostCarcosa25: Here's a pic of that sculpting tool, I'm sure it's pretty commonplace.

    Another shot of Bennings Thing just in case any of you were wondering what was going on with the head.




    I'm a big fan of 'the head is just a vestigial appendage' look, very off putting.

    If you squint, you can just see Norris Thing trying to keep a low profile in the background....
