EM4 Call of Cthulhu Miniatures: Byakhee Advancing (Monster MAYhem ’22)

EM4 Byakhee Advancing, Call of Cthulhu Miniatures

My second model for this year’s Monster MAYhem challenge, at Dead Dick’s Tavern and Temporary Lodging, this is a Byakhee miniature, from the Call of Cthulhu Mythos. I got this sometime in the 1990’s and it was painted. bashed around, and then a couple of years ago, I gave it a new base, and now I’ve added some covering to said base, and touched-up the model, preserving the original paint under the updates as well as much of the feel of the original version – so still a pretty simple paintjob.

Pretty sure I bought it to use as some sort of generic Daemon in the Warhammers, and there’s no reason it couldn’t be used as the same even today, along with whatever works from any FRPG or other Minis game.

I thought this model was by RAFM, as I picked up a bunch of RAFM Cthulhu models back in the day when they were being liquidated by the shop I frequented, but I couldn’t find any reference to it being a RAFM model. I eventually tracked it down to it’s modern home at EM4 (still available, though Out Of Stock right now) though I don’t believe EM4 offered blistered retail products, especially back then, and to a worldwide market, as they seem to be a repository for buying up the rights to old molds and models. As usual for many of my monster-type models, Reaper 50153: Berkeley, Zombie Survivor provides us with the scale reference.

  1. H.P. would be proud of this one! It looks great and if you compare this to FFG’s version, I think you’ll find that this (I assume anyway) older sculpt is actually much nicer than what they created.
