I didn’t manage to get anything complete yesterday, but I did get lot of movement on a bunch of models – and this evening I’ve been getting some of them over the line – so now I’ve got a small backlog of May models to get posted up over the next couple of days. The first one of these is another of my Nolzur’s D&D models – the Carrion Crawler. Once again this one is for the Monster MAYhem painting challenge.
As with a lot of these monsters, it’s a pretty simple paintjob on a model that’s not exactly overflowing with fine details. D&D’s Carrion Crawlers appear to be some form of giant maggot-creature, and so painting it with maggoty colours seemed appropriate. I did give it a little bit of diffentiation with the underbelly, and went with prismatic paint for fly-eyes rather than the black beady ones this time.
I did heat the model up to pry it off its warped PVC base in order to glue it down to a plastic 50mm round base from Reaper. Often I’ll glue these Nolzurs-or-Reaper PVC model bases down to a real base, but given how warped (and uninteresting) this one was I just went with disposal instead. Aside from rare D&D gaming, I can use this thing in almost-as-rare 40k gaming alongside models like Reaper’s Giant Maggots or their Carrion Worms (I wonder what they’re supposed to proxy?) in either a Nurgle or Undead force.
