I have one done here. I have since done another conversion, but just using a different head and the actual barbed strangler from the new box (rather than a converted strangler). I'll try to take a picture of that.

Took those pictures quickly. I am in the middle of painting it and so have based and applied a wash to the model, so it is (unfortunately) at its darkest. Putting the barbed strangler on the opposite side was really easy. I cut and worked down the ball mounting point, then created a new one on the opposite side with greenstuff. I put post in the center of the new ball, to give some mechanical strength to the joint - I was worried about the greenstuff letting go after a time.

I had also cut and done some greenstuff work on the elbow of the arm holding the venom cannon. I wanted it to be more outstretched. The normal bend of that elbow is about 90, I cut it down to more like 45.

Thanks for that, that was great. I've made mine now and wasn't as hard as i thought. It looks very similiar to yours Dreachon, but the guns are more aiming forward.

Hey Dreachon, the texture on the carapce of the front plate, is that just using one of the backs supplied? it looks cool. I might try somehting to get EC and reinforced chitin.

Thanks everyopne for all ya imput :)

There's a gloss varnish that you can use. My own models are matte finished with some gloss to highlight certain areas.

Well, might as well trying asking the employees, or go to another store. If all else fails you might be able to find something at a general arts & crafts store.
