That is really coming along beautifully! The pose is dramatic, good thinking.

I have come to kick ass and chew bubble gum! And I'm fresh outta bubble gum.

Hopefully I've not managed to get it wrong during the planning and testing phase, I was sure I had it right but last time I tried to fit it together I was not co-operative.

Anyway I've been a little sidetracked introducing my daughter to Age of Sigmar, but today was an opportunity to do my own hobby. Been working on the forelimb impaling the guardsman.

The eagle-eyed and keen memoried among you may realise that the guardsman is from the same unit as the victim on the Maulerfiends's base. Sadly TinyPic is no longer an option and I am yet to update my images, so if you want to check you should visit my Instagram. (Link in Sig)

So I got the rest of the limbs to the pre-assembly stage:

Best up I've started on the main body, I'm doing this by taking small areas of trim through the highlighting stages one at a time to try and stop it becoming overwhelming/tedious.
First up one leg and the side of a head not even a master of possession could love.

You're a skilled modeler and painter. Impaling an Astra Militarum guardsman to the Venomcrawler's leg, is an inspired touch.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

I appreciate any effort to make a work presentable, such as yours to make the Venomcrawler look like a real war machine in use.

Bit more progress on the trim, I've got most of one side done now.

A fun session tonight on what will become a massive Larson Sacrum.

That's one side done apart from the exhausts, which I will be doing with heat staining and will be a bit darker in tone than the rest and the spike rack down the middle.

I need to do all the bits of hose and stuff too, but all in good time.

I made more progress, got the other side of the head, tendrils and fore leg done, in my head there are about half a dozen sections of metal trim to do, including the back crest of spikes and the exhausts - although those will require the additional steps of being heat stained.

Other things to do will include the sections of inner glow, hoses, bruising up the flesh and goring up the rents in it, eye lenses, teeth, skulls and so on. And that's without the extra runes and other assorted iconography. Maybe a mont to six weeks of work I reckon.

Another step closer on this journey, I don't paint any models quickly but big ones like this seem to take me an inordinate amount of time, ah well.

Thanks to the awful weather of Storm Ciara I've cracked on with the Venomcrawler - exhausts with heat stain, inner glow and eye lenses and gore and bruising added to the flesh.

So I decided to assemble what I had (after doing a bit more on the base) in part to stop me rubbing any paint of the sub assemblies as I painted the last touches. Putting it together was a fiddly nightmare, partly due to glue going stale and goopy, partly because making it go together was just difficult!

That being said, now that it is assembled I can start to see my vision coming together and it feels like the hard work is paying off. I have now actually cut the cannons of the sprue and undercoated them which I hadn't bothered with up until now so they will probably be what I work on next.

Let me know what you think!

Lots of photos coming - first zoomed out, then zoomed in!
