Default Want to play "Cthonian stars" type games? Here's something for you.

The elder things from HPL's "At the mountains of madness" were some excellently thought out and truly alien beings, way ahead of the horde of "People with latex crap" aliens we had later in SF.

Here's a nice little 28mm scale paper model of one, free. If you're into a cthulhuesque traveller game, have fun!

Oh, for a second I thought you were calling me a scaecrow, now I understand.

I had a little idea here for a new forum, a traveller minis one that would be dedicated to traveller miniatures and travelleresque miniatures, terrain, physical models, etc, but opted against asking for one as I used up my quota on new forum requests getting the 3d render forum in.

BTW, it's amazing no ones ever done a paper model free trader, scout, air raft, etc...

OH, while I'll admit the colors aren't quite right (they're not pink) and the shape may not be perfect (No brain like head) the "hybrid brood-Buzzers" could pass for mi go in bad light, and again could be used to create a cthulhuesque traveller game or be added to cthonian stars.

Look around for the weapons options to create some extra high tech weapons. It's all free.

someone did do a paper model for the Scout - I have it on my desk. However, after more than an hour of searching both on-line & on my computer I can't find it...I'll have to look again later, but it comes out about 4 inches long or so, and is quite nice.
