Just plain scary.
Bloody hell that thing is positively nightmarish!
Amazingly well animated unit Plotinus!
I see your Cthulu and raise you one Narwhal
Oh my... God! Terrific but beautiful unit! Number one.
Best unit ever!
The model is wonderful and the animations aVery good job once again Plotinus ! Well done !
I think I'd like to see this as a leaderhead as well.
Wow, quite terrifying.
finally... Cthulhu! Amazing work!
Congratulations on a fine unit, Plotinus. You've made a lot of people very happy!
Thanks for the comments, all. Animating those tentacles really was a hassle so it is nice that the unit is appreciated.
I don't think the textures mesh well enough at that level for it to work, unfortunately:
<dubious LH mock-up removed>
(This model was a mash-up of epic proportions to start with.)
I intended to make him bigger, but it proved just impossible to fit him any larger into the available flc size, unfortunately. If only negative offsets were possible, you could have much larger units, but the need to fit him not only so that he is no larger than 240x240 but also so that he sits on a tile located in the middle of that square is very constraining.
I like this Leaderhead, at least if you could post an animated preview we could see better if it works. Perhaps someone could help with the textures problem ?
Im afraid i have to agree with Plotinus: the model does not look that good in this scale in my view. Still, the unit is amazing
Oh alright. But the units still looks great!
Great unit. I think that the leaderhead would work and that it would not necessarily be a top-quality one, but nevertheless better than some of the worse, but still usable, ones on the site.
I think that model would be a perfectly effective leaderhead with a darker background and a closer-in camera shot. The problem would be, how does one make a happy Cthulhu?
Cthulhu revelling in the destruction of something. The dark background becomes illuminated by some mystical light/fire/glow and he raises his ehad to heaven, cackling, enjoying the sheer joy of the wreakment of havoc… well, you get the idea.
Well, a leaderhead is still better than no leaderhead like we currently have.
So long as it doesn't take an incredibly large amount of time to make (I have no idea how long it would take), it would be worth the effort to make a leaderhead to fill in until someone else can make a better one.
