Thank you!  I tried to do my homework by scouring through a lot of historical photos until I found enough material to make it work.

Thank you! I could have used your Mi-Go photographs for reference, if only I had known ;)

Ah well I'm sure there will be further chances for you to paint them. I'll try to get some close-ups of them using their nippers for you if I can get close enough and if they do not retaliate when i try and photograph them...

Lovely colours and atmosphere! The shape of the creature is great too.

Thank you very much, I was trying to capture that classic Victorian English misty mysteriousness.

I am poking my group to consider should we move from current 1920 game to 1890 game setting.. They are losing their toons soon anyhow so have to see how it turns out.
