Khurasan Miniatures have posted a preview of their upcoming 15mm Octopus God miniature.

From their website:

Here’s an upcoming model for my 1930s eldritch horror line. He’s just an unassuming chap here to end the world, whom we like to call the Octopus God. He’s all resin, doesn’t come with the 50mm base (sorry) and we think he’s about 75mm tall, but we’re not sure as we’re s little afraid to measure him.

His hand appears rather large in the first image. They’re not small, mind, but in that particular photo it’s forced perspective.

Coming soon.

“Spacejacker” did the paintup. In one image you can see him standing next to an octopus god cultist high priest (15 mil remember).

    He’s….cute? Would be really fun to paint up though.

      I’d like to see a version with him eating a sasusage

  • cybogoblin

    Mmm… non-ecludian.

    Ooo and in 15mm – fascinating, now I just need a release date and price

    Nice, but I don’t think there’s any copyright issues when it come to Lovecraft, you can call it what it is..

    • evernevermore (John)

      Actually it depends very heavily on what name your using. Only some of Lovecraft’s material is free and clear, as Chaosium has rights to some of it for thier Call of Cthulhu rpg. The bizarre nature of the matter is almost enough to drive you mad, which is fitting

  • You can call him Cthulhu. Pretty much all of Lovecraft’s material is public domain at this point. Original content created by companies using the Lovecraft material would be copyright protected i.e. new characters. According to Wikipedia Chaosium has the trademark to “The Call of Cthulhu” (or maybe “Call of Cthulhu” though with that being so close to the original book title I’m not sure how that worked out but I’m no trademark attorney).
