My Mycetic Spore model, built from wire, glue and bits (mainly Genestealer Scything Talons).
I like to get as close as possible to the picture in the codex and to me the pic looks like a gooey claw thing disgorging the Carnifex. So, I made it as best I could (minus the Carnifex).
Came out a decent size too. Fits on the Mawlocs base (I dropped the Mawloc, the base (and several appendages) came off so what the hell, I'll buy him a replacement base later), not too big while still giving MC cover options and (if they're squished up) you can see a Trygon or 20 Termagaunts fitting in it.
Plus, unlike the common trend of painting those Plasma thingy toy eggs, it's 100% self made or GW parts so you dont have to worry about the 'Models may NOT contain significant elements of pre-assembled and/or pre-painted models or toys' ruling some places (Like Adepticon) have.
Thoughts, comments, suggestions, questions?
Looks pretty sweet, unique model and cool take on the spore.
It would be cool if you had rippers or gaunts (if you have the models) in leaping poses coming out of the spore. Maybe some tentacles representing the lash whips as well.
Overall great job though, look forward to see it painted.

Thats fantastic! Definitely the way ill be doing mine, thanks for the inspiration!
Excellent job. I think I may take this with a couple mods:
1) have the maw pointing up and then base is to look like it made a bit of a crater and could put some scenic water (colored) for a bio-pool center
2) tentacles reaching out for CC
3) a thicker tentacle or stem with a magnetic option for the ranged weapon.

That's terrific! Hot glue, I assume?
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

Very nice work,
I am currently attempting to build my own Spores too, and I agree on those toy eggs.... Just not a fan.
Im using modeling Clay to sculpt the overall shape then adding bits and green stuff. I have to different models im trying, I should post some pics up. May help with Inspiration for others too.
But im a big fan of your Spore, Looks amazing!
Holy crap! Attack of the goo-pod from beyond the moon! I think that is by far the best scratch built Mycetic spore I have seen. I will certainly be using that method as the guideline for building my own Spores. It is also something that won't bankrupt me or take an eternity to create either. Superb work, a well deserved reppy for you.
What did you use for the gloop that forms the cool webby look of the thing? I think that it looks just right for a Tyranid pod.
Thats a great idea and take on a metric spore, not to hard to make nice model man

WIP Tau Stuff
I'm in the process of making another, but instead of a fully open one I'm doing it so the opening is at about 45 degrees and halfway open, so it looks like it's only just impacted the ground. Once I goo it up I'll post pics of it as well.
Word of advice to anyone, grab a hot glue gun. After constantly gluing my fingers together with super glue and such I find the odd burnt finger to be a much better compromise and the glue holds a lot faster/better then other stuff seems to.
