Eventually, the whole carapace will be shell. The vision I have (sketches to come) is of a barnacle encrusted swamp monster of sorts. The Splinter fleet/army I have in mind is an hive once thought defeated that has lurked in the dark corners of a world and regained its strength. Also.. they are tasty, when boiled with cajun spices... but not everybody knows this. Kind of a tyranid version of this guy.... but with bigger legs....
"Beware the Snappyfex! Nomnomnom!"
For one of the two, I have started a 'custom' set of Devourer arms. Kind of helps with the crabby look and also gives him an extra set of walking limbs because he's a bit top heavy. I wish I'd had enough for both, but I thik the other may have a venom cannon...one of the few S-9 weapons in the Tyranid arsenal, short of engaging vehicles in close combat...which is always fun.
Just the start, still have to fill them in and make them a bit more weapon like, but you get the idea.
ALSO....Ms Charlotte got another pair of legs while I was waiting for greenstuff to dry. I'm endeavoring to get her finished up as this month, if possible.
That's all for now. Hopefully I'll have another post @ Sunday/Monday.
