Squig Power!

Gitz go in this end! (Borat approves)


Grrraaaaawwwwrrr... ok I stop now.

The gun platform -- 6 guns in all

Good news: There's a driver. Bad news: It's an Ork!

Yes, he definitely has line of sight.

She's done!

I picked up this Gargantuan Squiggoth about two years ago, and only recently got her done. Why's she a she? Well her name's Roxy... Let's just leave it at that.

In all the model took me about 3 weeks or so to finish, jolly quick.

So why am I putting up pictures only now?

Turns out she has a rather epic backstory.

When I first received the model in the mail, I cleaned it up with detergent, as is usual for resin kits, before starting to paint.

Half way through the model, I was checking out the paintjob one day, when I ended up with a handful of wet paint, when the model should have been dry for hours.

Roxy, through a cruel twist of fate, was leaking uncured resin.

Thankfully I was able to get a replacement in the mail (thanks Nic!) and Roxy was back on track. But other projects crept in (like 3,500 points of Imperial Guard) and she was pushed back.

So it was a while before I got back to finishing this great model, and I'm glad I did. While all of the Forgeworld Ork stuff is suitably Orky-looking, nothing quite does 'Ork' like this model.

Must be the big teef wot eats ya.
