Hello, new here, someone in my other forum said I should post these here, that you guys would appreciate them.
I am running an all themed spider army for goblins in fantasy. So i have a LOT of spider riders (thank you warstore for cheap spider riders). I tunred some of my spider riders into "counts as" wolf riders for this army. i took the spiders and gave them "hair" like a tarantula using static grass, then painted them approrpiately. Hope some of you find it interesting. I am a decent painter, but that's all, so keep that in mind before you destroy me!
My old forum scales pictures to fit, if this doesn't happen here, my apologies and I will just use links in the future.
Please keep images to a maximum of 700px wide please - Kuffy

I like the look of those. Very creepy and hairy.
The pics will probably get resized, just so you know.
Yeah I think you should resize the pics...
Apart from that the spiders look excellent... and since I don't know I will ask... How have you made the hairy effect?
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Ok I did not realise the size restriction on the pictures, from now On I will re-size all my pictures that way. Thanks for helping me out.
The hairy spiders was done by simply taking the base spider, primering it black, and then using super glue and static grass on the portions I wanted Hairy. I then painted it all black again and went from there. If you are not familiar with static grass, it is a wonderfull tool! A little super glue, sprinkle on, blow on it and it stands up!
I actualy have a second set of these, using a dark purple/indigo color scheme. I found some tarantula from mexico that has these colors on it, No kidding! bright purple/blue! And HUGE!!!!
I like them a lot. They just seem very real to me. Very tarantula like... Great job
what you did to those spiders is cool,they really look like tarantula spiders now :>
Thanks guys! I continue to wiork on my all spider army! I have yet to find a good spider to "count as" my giant. I was thinking of converting one using Carnifex scything talons as legs. Does anyone have any good conversion ideas for a spider that big? For a bit i thought about buying a cheap plastic spider, but cannot find one worthwhile in the right size.
Neat. I'd say more, but they're too real for me. Arachnophobia ahoy!

You can use the normal giant covered in spider carapaces for armor or something...will be cool to have an 8 eyed skin helmet,or even spider web tatoos
I think your Spiders are very cool. The look very much like giant tarantulas. I think the way you have done them to look realistic is very good. Keep up the good work.
