Some major advances on my arachnarok those last days.

I have selected the bits i wanted and prepared a howdah.



And here it is, with railings.





Addition of a Siege range orc ladder.



And preparation of the main mast, with an old shield. I like its old design very much :)



First tests with inhabitants after a carefull selection. Mainly archers and standard bearers.



Beginning of the painting... And basing (silicon like for my puzzle table). I have chosen a pale colour for wood, as the spider is already dark.



And the long painting task...



Mast is almost ready. An other spider for a gob hero is on its way too. Ant the gobs themselves.



And here we are with the gobs ! Several time i had to unglue and reglue them...



And it's done, or very nearly ! Sorry for pictures with flash, it was nearly night.





On its triple base (wip).



And i have textured it and added small spiders from the original base of the spider.



And the futur hero and his mount.

I saw the first picture of your Arachnarok and thought "eewww..."
So I guess you deserve an extra sincere compliment for the paint job  ;D

Love the Arachnarok!

Well done on constructing the deck and banner, those planks and ladder mustíve been very fiddly.

Thanks for everything, guys ! It helps for motivation !

I have finished this week-end both the arachnarok and the hero on spider.

First job on the bases.



Painting the saddle of the hero on spider.



Addition of details on the big arachnarok base.



It's not very visible but i have added a sepia wash on yellow, to fade it, and a green one on goblins themselves.



And here is an impression of its volume inside an army.





And here they are both, with terminated base and painting job for the hero.





I'm happy it's done ! It was long but fun and i'm on my way for further project.

Where on earth are those tiny tiny spiders on the base from? Lord of the Rings baby spiders?

When a guy here traded me the giant spider, it camed with a base with them. I had to cut them off and glug them again on my base.

So i'm not sure... But as far as i know, those giant spiders come with this special base. I will ask him to confirm.

It's great to see the finished product- it really inspires me to get on and do my own. I had plans to try and recast the forest goblin models then cut them up, but that'd take a lot of work and yours looks great as-is. I like your idea of using the sitting wolf chariot goblin- may steal that one   ;)

If I understand correctly, then those little spiders are a regular moulded detail on the bases of the Battle for Skull Pass goblin spider rider models. They're similar but different to the normal spider rider boxed set, which I don't think have those details. I may have that around the wrong way, but the big spider looks to be single piece, which supports my memories.

Yes, the big spider is a one piece molded fig.

Tell us what you plan to do for your own ? What model would you like to use ?

To recast forest gobs would be great. But it's hard to use blue stuff with 10mm figs. You have to mold them carefully. But it can works. Try it !
