In the latest update Sandy posted some pictures of the OOTW figures photoshopped to look more like the actual miniatures will. I really like this colour change

Here's a pic

I'm not a huge fan honestly. It's a bit bright. Everyone kept referring to the previous color as "bruise like". I liked that. It fit with such a biologically focused faction.

I prefer the brighter colors for this one, so a good change overall

I agree, it's just kinda... bubblegum. I'm not worried as its not offensively bright (neon would be a bit much) but I still think I'll at least give the faction a wash or shade dip.

I do not care what color they are as they will all be painted by me at first opportunity!

It is a little fruity, but not too bad.

I like it! Opener's models are all pretty fleshy, and the pink color particularly suits all the intestines!

I never would have thought to choose this color. However seeing it, I like it. I think it will really pop out against the map and stand out well from the other faction colors. Too bad I didn't get the Opener expansion. cry

I like this color as well. It really makes Yog-Sothoth "POP" against the other factions. And it's not too late to add onto or upgrade your order. You know you want too!

Cthulhu Wars! Game responsibly.

Why was the decision made to make the Opener of Potatoes purple instead of brown? I like the change; just curious as to the why of it.

Up until now he's been more of a lavender, never brown.

I think it's also an unspoken convention. For instance, purple is often evocative of sorcery or magic (which are strongly associated with Yog-Sothoth). Plus, his faction in the Call of Cthulhu Living Card Game has purple-bordered cards.

Oh yeah. For some reason I got it in my head the faction was brown. A few seconds of searching would have cleared that up. Oh well.

It was more of a brownish purple if anything.

The previous shade of purple was much darker than this. This change is a nice one.

Has GEG thought about a candy line? I would definetly buy a rasberry Yog Sothoth.

I'm being serius, I would.

Other tastes:

1Cthulhu: Sour apple.
2Windwalker: Peach/Pineapple.
3Sleeper: Orange.
4Crawling Chaos: Blueberry.
5Black Goat: Strawberry.
6Yellow Sign: Lemon.

Through the Desert did it first.

If you do come out with these, they should be gummys because then you can distort them and make their tentacles wave around and stuff.
