Meet the Scrawny one!
The "scrawny" one is another lurker for my Strange Aeons games. It is inspired by a demon of the same name in Anthony Boucher's short story The scrawny one. If you're interested, you can have a read here.
In SA, when a human model (so, a crazed cultist) commits a suicide on one of the three pentagrams, a demon is spawned. Its special rule is, that it can swallow a model as a whole, which means a model suffers an instant death (compared to injury if removed from play any other way). If it gets lucky and eats your main character, your campaign is finished!
Inspired by Uncle Mike's Worldwide scrawny ones. I love the one swallowing poor treshold agent!
I've used my Mantic zombies again, this time a crawler. I've turned torso 180° from how it was "supposed" to be and built the demon around it. I had no idea how I would want to make it look, let alone paint it. I kept in mind that it was supposed to be scrawny, but it would enlarge...like a snake. I went with some tentacles, preventing victim the escape...it is not eldritch until it has tentacles! And many eyes, everyone likes eyes! I went with pinky green colors to make it stand out from my mostly grey and "skin" colored monsters.
