Shoggoth

Known variously as darkspawn, shoggoths, daemonkind...
"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn," droned the trembling priest, daubing a mixture of crushed salt, blood and more esoteric ingredients in eldritch symbols on the torso of the bound and weeping sacrifice. The circle of cultists surrounding the priest and sacrifice took up the chant "Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!" Unnatural bulges began to appear under the skin of the sacrifice, with blood beginning to flow from his orifices...

The priest grinned through broken teeth and proclaimed "His servant comes!"
The creatures leave a trail of mucus, blood and other bodily fluids in their wake.
This shoggoth is another miniature from the Horrorclix range - it comes pre-painted on a Clix base. It's part of the big batch of Horrorclix I bought for the zombie project - I picked up a few odds and ends, thinking that they'd either be fun to paint or with slightly different plans in mind - this one was for Hellboy to beat up! It'd also fit well in 40k as a Chaos spawn, WWWII as a Nazi experiment gone wrong (or right?) or as a post-apoc irradiated mutant! This was brilliant to paint - a proper nasty looking miniature!

    They said to fly them out and drop them in the sea
    I tried to sell them on their mimicking adaptive powers
    "Why don't you get your oily tendrils offa me?"

    Shoggoths away
    Today's the day
    Shoggoths away
    Hey, hey"
