After a visit to a gift shop whilst on holiday, I’ve been able to cross some problematic demons from the Forgotten Pacts expansion off the list. I say problematic because their descriptions in the book are very specific, yet I’ve been unable to find any miniatures that they could have been based on.
Thankfully the aforementioned gift shop was selling some cheap toys of seaside creatures, which fitted the bill for some of the demons quite nicely.
First off the Kaylakids: floating squid-like demons that entrap their prey with their tentacles and zap them with an electrical discharge. These are simply plastic toy jellyfish given a quick paintjob and attached to a base with some wire. I like these models and am happy with the paintjob.
Following these is a pair of Grakyuras. Basically a cross between a crab and a turtle, these demons grab their target with their large claws and fling them about before devouring them. Plastic toy crabs fitted the bill here, modified with some Greenstuff to fit the brief a little more. I’m not really happy with how I modelled these, hence the rather uninteresting paint scheme.
There are plenty more strange (and specific) demons to think about, but next in the painting queue is someone to fight them all…
