Very much on the blue tack phase, I kinda like the spider look is all, however I've always wanted to do a scorpion defiler maybe I could utilize it on this instead

Like I've said before, absolutely stunning work! It's almost unbelievable how puny the Dreadknight conversion looks next to the new guy!

 

So, next stop Reaver Titan, right? ;)

He looks awesome! Oh and now I know how big the Knight Titan actually is as I haven't seen one in the flesh yet. I cant help but feel the Dreadknight conversion needs bigger shoulders now though msn-wink.gif

Hmm, maybe it's just the different angle of the photo, but the "Octobrute" does indeed have a rather squat appearance in the new picture. Did you change the placement of the legs?

Hmm, maybe it's the angle at which the legs are attached? I'll just point you towards Biohazard's amazing Helbrute conversion here, because his approach uses very similar components to a near perfect effect:

Yeah I think it may be the fact that biihazards is standing more upright, mines legs may be a tad spread making it appear shorter

Arachnids with four legs? Preposterous! msn-wink.gif 

Seriously though, while the Octobrute looks almost cuddly in an "OMG it's going to grab me, hug me and then devour me" kind of way, the best adjective I can come up with for the Arachnofiend is alien. It must be the lack of face and the vaguely scorpion-like appearance. Well done on both models. Can't wait top see them painted.

Kraut, thanks buddy.

Now, to the matter at hand, I like the rough look of the arachnofiend, it's gonna look cool with another couple of bits and some paint.

The Octobrute however seems to have lost some of it's original menace, it may be the angle or it could be the large head and tentacles throwing it off. One suggestion is shortening the tentacles slightly and maybe change the position of the lower tentacles to wrap around almost in line with his elbows? Just a couple of thoughts, another option is using a slightly smaller head?

Definately 8 limbs, a bit of a bad angle on the last one

IMAG0744_zpsvkvcenlm.jpg

Perhaps it was the removal of the spiked shoulders, or even as simple as the had having no neck and being straight on?

Kraut, thanks buddy.

I was contemplating shortening the tentacles, hopefuly that makes a good effect otherwise I'm not sure I have any smaller heads lying around

All in all I'm happy as Larry with the arachno, as biohazard said, a couple more bits and some paint and we will be sweet

As for the octo, I don't know what I changed but I was happier before haha, keep the input coming guys, greatly appreciated
