To be honest I much prefer the open top to the armoured top... and like even less the turret top... but the setups are optional and it uses up more of the Russ ;) Not sure what Ill be doing with it once its finished.

I like both the turreted and the open-topped configurations. More options are always better and bymagntizing the turret it opens the possibility for creating other turrets with different weapon set-ups. It does look tall, but I don't think that is a bad thing for the squiggoths which in epic used to have tall howdahs brimming with guns. I am looking forward to seeing how you detail this.

I realize you have been done with the skirts for some time, but I am wondering if you shouldn't revisit it. It may look a little more "worky" if you had kind of a free swinging hinge of sorts. Like in this picture, the skirt hangs via a hinge.
Nice work, great to see this thing lunging forward again.

From what I can tell the skirts are hinged since they are connected by lengths of cut plastic rod.

This is a good observation, are you planning details for the hinges, or more leaving them as is? *K, so apparently I need to make myself even more clear on this thing "Will you please let us know what ideas you are brainstorming, as I still think that the hinges need more development"

Well, usually I hate being wrong, I mean I mean REALLY hate it, but with this I'm so glad I was.

This is freaking sweet :thumbs.

I do have to ask though is this a keeper or a seller?


If you could somehow cast this, I can think of a few here on the boards willing to shell out to add to their.... Waaagh!

(heck, even just the squig himself minus the Howdah)

I like it, but the two spikes on his forehead are bugging me, as when he thrashed and charged about he would bacng his head into the spikes of the howda, rocking the howda even more, and making it want to throw such an uncomfortable rider.

"Will you please let us know what ideas you are brainstorming, as I still think that the hinges need more development"


Hinges will basicly have the same sort of linkages as in that Stompa pic.
Im guessing youve noticed that the solid rods Ive placed between the plates restrict thier movement, being hinged like a door they can only move back n forth, not side to side.
Ive attched them in this way for strength. On the underside there are strips of 0.5mm plasticard adding further strength.
Once Ive added loops to these hinged areas it wont be so noticable. In any case, due to thier positioning and the genaral movemnt of the Squiggoth's legs it realy isnt that much of an issue.

Good point. Ill correct that. ;)

Hey waaagh99, Welcome to The Waaagh!

Just so ya know, what you have done here is called threadnomancy. Threads come and go pretty fast here at The Waaagh, so if the thread is more than a couple weeks old please don't reply. Let it alone, or pm the thread starter with your comments.

Your comments, while nice, weren't very constructive either. Constructive critisism is the basis for the Mek's Garage. Before making any more posts, I just want to suggest you check out some of the threads here, most importantly Da Bosses Rulez. Thanks!
