December 14th - Large Arachnids

Recommended Posts

I like them, though disappointed by the lack of circular saws.

But... pretty please with sugar on top, scale them so the legs actually lands inside the lip of a 50 mm base.

This seems like pure desperation to find something to complain about on an otherwise awesome model.

Yeah, or constructive critique. Depending on your viewpoint, I guess.

Not all criticism is constructive, including criticism of each other's motives.

Let's stay on the topic of the model.  Thanks.

Personally I love the look of these, I'll take a lightning thing over a buzz-saw any day.  Plus they're great on the table, so can't wait for these to come out.

I love these too. I kind of get the complaints about models not having weapons they have in the rules but it doesn't bother me at all and at the end of the day 'buzz saw' or 'baton' or whatever is just a rule name, it's not like there's any wysiwyg issues or anything.

50mm base.

Huzzah!

Probably just as well these are coming out. People give me funny looks when I use my proxy.

I think it's because it doesn't fit on a 50 mm base. :P

Regarding the saw I don't think it's in any way a deal breaker, but it bugs me a little. Anyway, the thing on their tail looks like it could perhaps hold a saw blade made from thin plasticard...

I love it... And I hate it.  It's a beautiful model, but I have arachnophobia, so halfway through painting it, I'd probably scream and throw it, metal paint job or not.

Is it too late to ask, pretty please, for buzz saw mandibles?  :huh:

Hey! I like the zappy raygun projections...... :P

I believe you misspelled "phallic looking objects". :P 

Kidding aside, I'm onboard for models looking more like accurate representations of what their rules say.  Of course, you're never going to get everything right, and with some of the remakes, granted, they did make a few really accurate ones.  (My personal favorite being "Abuela Ortega").  But with this one, as well as the Guild Sgt from last month, I feel that there's been a bit of a lackluster in effort with them.  Just my 2 cents...

What would be more terrifying if I encountered it in the real world.

A massive mechanical spider with a buzz saw mouth revving up

A massive mechanical spider with a metal rod, humming as its capacitors fill

I'd start running regardless.

Love this model
