Elder Thing Disruptor Weapon.

"The Old Ones had used curious weapons of molecular and atomic disturbances against the rebel entities, and in the end had achieved a complete victory." ~H.P.L.

Just a few quick pictures of the Elder Thing with disruptor weapon. I wanted the design of their weapons to be very Baroque and semi-organic without being bio-mechanical. These weapons can be fired in various ways. A lower setting produces uncomfortable heat and blistering, this is the setting most often used to control wayward shoggoths. By increasing the power of the weapon the Elder Things can cause biological material to boil or burn. And at its highest setting it will rip apart molecular bonds with highly explosive results. 

The only disadvantage to using these weapons is that the range and power must be set before firing and so fast moving targets often avoid the worst effects. It is noted in At The Mountains of Madness that the Spawn of Cthulhu and the Mi-Go seem to be able to avoid some of the disruptor's effect by nature of their odd physical reality, although this might only be revisionist history on the part of the Elder Things to explain defeats in battle by these foes.
The Elder Things will also be getting a large scale cannon weapon and close combat troops. The Elder Things miniatures are available here:


  1. Very nice! I'm going order some of these and some of the unarmed Elder Things once your range is a bit broader. 15mm sci fi AND Cthulhu!?! Awesome!

  2. Sweet! Even though they're supposedly 15mm I'm gonna use them with 28s because they are too cool to be bound by scale...

  3. Hi, love the minis, any update on when the weapons will be available to purchase? These along with 15mm WW2 are a match just made for Achtung Cthulhu

    1. These have been put on the back burner for a while due to other commitments. I'm hoping to have the redesigned and released some time in 2014. Thanks for your interest.
