Elder Thing

It's still a work in progress, but this Elder Thing is coming along quite nicely. At a guess, assuming the base has a grid of holes spaced 1" apart, this sculpt is over a foot high.

Nice piece of work, but why does everyone always give the Elder Things only two wings? It seemed pretty explicit to me that they should have five.

I think it's because accurately portraying all five wings doesn't look good. You're right about Lovecraft's description being quite specific about the number of wings. That creates a wonderfully alien mental picture, but when it comes to depicting it visually the human love of symmetry seems to trump accuracy.
