Lovercraftian horrors line art.

Recommended Posts

I don't think the fiction supports having a scale for all of them. Some of them are never compared to anything and thus very difficult to scale. I would imagine that Zoth-Ommog is quite large as it's description includes a comparison to dinosaurs, but no explicit size is given that I know of.

Some are man sized. It is a good resource but I liked some of the art that has been previously done for Nyarlathotep and Cthulhu in particular.

Sure. But at least one of Cthulhu's progeny was described as "only measurable in a scale of miles". I'm just saying that some are not explicitly given a size, some have a vague inference and some are quite specific. Plus it varies if you only believe certain authors should be canon.

Nyarlathotep can take pretty much any form he wants, so any drawing of him is going to challenge the notion of canonicity in any case.

 

One thing I find bemusing is that in the board game Arkham Horror, you will often find your investigators fighting dholes, which given their size is absurd. But hey, it's just a dumb board game, right?
