So, almost finished the DPoN I have been working on for what seems like ages. Mind you, this guy has a handful of bitz and is otherwise GS, milput, toothpicks, and of course…RBB.
Will post some better pictures of him. I still have to complete the base and do the webbing for the other side of the jaw.
The tentacles turned out shorter than I was going to do initially. I did this largely for model balance. There are 4 of them, but I may add two much longer ones (sort of like a squid’s ambush tentacles) to have as well to play with and make him look a little more dynamic. The base will be built up foam and flock, with some clumps of dirt and rocks then painted light brown on the outside and dark brown and black with a gloss finish on the inside to make it look like freshly churned wet earth. Moss and mold effects to EVERYTHING. Then some rocks that get pushed up from below as well to cap off the “crater” effect. I may have a hapless space marine (UMs of course) being somehow in trouble from this guy.
Right now he is a little off balance (not as bad as he looks in the pic, that’s the curvature of the lightbox). Will likely add some heavy weights to the base to make him quite sturdy and solid no matter what I put him on.
I may also bend the headed tongue to be looking more straight on.
Would love to get comments and suggestions.
Thanks for reading!,
