    Hydra Warningz

    HYDRA!!!

    I keep thinking of hordes of goons fighting Capt. America.
    Consider this a warning for all of you looking to pick up a hydra. I’m actually being very good and doing my required IG for the Tale of Painters project. Working on DE is my reward. I’m glad I did the hydra first because A) It’s a shuper shweet model and B) I would have become very frustrated with all the pinning and green stuff this thing required. Here it is, it’s cool… in a tedious, painful kind of way. Not for your beginning gamer!





    Ugh, I just noticed I still need to green stuff the open mouths! Grumble, mutter...

    Oh.. I wish you could've seen this dude from my local store.. he actually "reposition" his Hydra so that its front legs are standing on a 4" tall vertical rock. He used a plier and bend the back legs downwards so the Hydra seems to be "standing" and leaning forward, then he bends the front legs to fit on top of the rock.. then he bends the necks so it's facing forward. Talk about works... hah.

    I was actually going to try and pose my hydra as if it was rearing back with one of the legs crushing or standing on something (Probably an Empire or Ogre model, I hate them both). I have yet to buy the model, but from the looks of it, I have a lot of work to think out

    Wow, I thought GW had tried to make this one easy to fit together! Hmm, Il bear that in mind for when I purchase my own.

    Another one of those models that is a sheer pain to put together is the Cheese (steam) tank, mine had so many holes and gaps in it you could see through the model.

    Also Tweaker, consider your basing style, my basing style! Definately doing slate with snow now, it looks ace!

    should've been plastic.

    I have to admit, I don't like the model. The heads are fine, but compared to the body ~ how does the thing stand, much less move? I know this is fantasy, but some proportions need to still exist.
