I made a giant snake out of old hydra necks I had laying around and I want to use it for a unit filler for squig herds. I am using a unit filler because I find squig herds lose all their character when deployed in large units due to repetition of the awesomely unique looking models... and I like monsters.
I attached a photo of the WIP. I am wondering the best way to avoid confusion about what parts of the model count as goblin herders and which parts count as squigs since templates, magic, cannonballs and supporting attacks would be resolved differently due to the mixed stat lines in the squig herd.
I'm planning to add 3 goblin models but these can not fit precisely where they would in a standard rank and file setup so it could potentially be confusing. It is mounted on 2 40 mm bases, so I want it to count as 5 squigs and 3 gobbos.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to avoid or reduce confusion?
Great conversion and modelling work, it should look good when painted up along side plenty fo squigs and goblins (make sure to paint it the same colour as ur squigs). The only thing i can think of is to use it as simply 8 squigs. Get a few more spare gobbos to use as herders and increase the herd's size a little.
My squig unit filler is an empire soldier being surrounded and eaten by a bunch of squigs. I think they are great ideas and add character to the unit
hope that helped
well what id do is mark some lines on its base as divisions of the 3 sqigs at the front, then the same on the back of it for the 2 goblins, this is to aid in identification of where each "model" is, then tally it on paper when something dies, alternatively, drill 3 holes front 2 rear, pop in some mushrooms or something, 3 red (squigs) 2 green (gobbo) use them as markers/counters and have the snake "counts as"
id let u play with it, as long as we took time on the combat so it didnt get confusing and you correctly explained it to me.

You could turn it sideways and count it as 8 squigs, then there'd be no confusion at all...
