Again, really excellent work, I especially like the sense of movement. No "posing for the camera" here! I too am interested in what size category this beast is gonna fall under. Edit: I'd suggest you leave the nose off, or at best just make it a couple nostril-slits. I like the carnivorous whale look of the head as it is!

I use the standard grade for this sorta thing. For fine sculpture the 'fine white' grade is better.



Kr00za - how heavy is this beast? Is there any concern as to whether that 1 leg will be strained/stressed holding up the rest of the mini + howda, boyz, bitz, etc. ? I've never sculpted anything like this, so I'm voicing these concerns from a position of ignorance, but it seems to me that if you're going to need a metal rod in that leg to help support the body, now is the time to do it.
So - whenever dem doks finish staplin' yer arms back on Haky, why don't you an yer boyz come down fer a visit. We'll 'av a few squigaritas, throw a few grots around an' discuss who dis 'ere choppa really belongs to...

These Waaaghs are a cross between a mass migration, holy crusade, looting party and pub crawl, with a bit of genocide thrown in for good measure.

You know Nosher's MO, anything he paints blue is automatically his.

Wow this is becoming a great sculpture and great pose but I have the same concern as Nosher about the stability of that one leg supporting everything. I think a big nose ring like they use on ox's would be great and two other rings through the front teeth for "stearing" this beast.

Ill be adding tusks to the lower jaw, not sure wat class of squig it should be. Its not too heavy due to the fact it has a foil core. If it was soild putty it would weight about 1kg by now. The leg it plently strong anuf to suport the wieght. The tightly twisted foil is pretty strong, and the putty around it is quite thick.

Fantasitic work Kr00za! This thing really looks like a Gargantuan sized fantasy squig and not just a dinosaur, which is exactly how I think squiggoths should look! When you get around to adding in the teeth be sure to put all kinds of little things stuck in between them. I'd love to see a beakie helmet or two lodged in there or maybe even the remnants of a panzee farseer or avatar! :thumbs -Cheers

Yerh Ive never been a big fan of the FW design is a great looking model but Im confused as to how a small fat squig that has no resemblence to a Dinosaur or Lizard, evolvez to look like one. :? I want mine to keep a proppa squig look. Added the tuskz and did some more work on the feet. I tried it with a big tong but it just made it look like it wanted to lick people like a bug friendly dog. SO Ive gone for a smaller one.

Reminds me of a whale. But I'm a fishy character myself. :! I think what it needs is either a cannon shot in one eye so its a cyclops and that could be its name. OR you could give it a bionic eye, with a little laser beam attached to its head. Like the sharks. Peace out :cheers Shaded palm trees
Of course all my topics are pic heavy, you know why? because people don't want to open 12 hyperlinks a page! it stands to reason

I think you'll find as I add more facial features it will look less 'whale' like ;)

That looks incredible. :love Can't wait to see some armour! However some battle damage to the skin might look quite cool. a few rounds logded here. a few infected wounds there. perhaps a Big 'ol SCAR! In the shape of a lightning bolt! to make it Fasta!. i'll stop now.

about the tusk, i agree that they look a bit off but i dont think you need to move them as much as i think you shoud extend same of the lips around it. imagine something like an elephant, the skin hangs over the tush but the mouth doesnt have to be gapping across the cheek to the tusk. am i making sense?

Ill refer u to my earlier statment...


This thing that is 'fundamentally off ' at the moment is the fact it isnt finished.
Id love to be able to sculpt the final shape it in one go... but thats not possible.


And also remember Im making a Squiggoth, not an Elephant, so there realy is no reason why the tusks should be prodruding from the mouth.
Take a look a the FW G-Squiggoth. Ive draw inspiration from it tusk design.

I realise now that I hate the man with a passion since I know now that he has as much skill with Miliput as he has with plasticard... If any one needs me I'll be in my room having a cry :crybaby P.S. I think it'll be funny if it had a beakie trapped between 2 teef

Uh, the same way a hair squig evolves into a Squiggoth, i.e. it doesn't.

:soap Sorry, to go OT, but this is a pet peeve of mine. No one ever said a squighound or squighopper
or a squig-anything grows up to be a squiggoth. Folks are just generalizing from the "Orks gets bigger
and greener as they fight" fluff. Same could be true of squigs, but that don't give you 4-legged squiggoths
from hair-squigs. Most likely a 4-legged squiggoth "sprouts" as a tiny (maybe 4 foot high) 4-legged squig
and then takes a lot of care and feeding before becoming that FW behemoth.

Now logically you could also take a WHFB squighopper and feed him and fight him and keep him around
for a century and get Krooza's or Mouse's squiggoths. :thumbs

I was gonna say the tusks were borked, but I like how you've transitioned them into the cheek. Very
slick Krooza. And thumbs up on the nose. Can't wait to see more.

It did accur to be that this Squiggoth looks more FB than 40K.
Once its built Ill have to decide weather to add the usual 40K gubbinz or just add a saddle and a FB WarBoss ;)
