Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower #4

image

Now the apparent low point in the new WHQ was the Scuttlers..so I converted my own!

image

Isolated the parts for the scuttlers aren’t bad beyond the silly spider on a net but together they didn’t work at all imo.

So I chopped off the heads and arms and trimmed some skaven clan rats miniatures I had.

I think I’ve retained the arachnid shape but also merged it more with my PtG stuff like this.

What’s your thoughts on the matter of Scuttlers? Did I do right or did I just make it worse?

    I feel you have stayed relatively true to the original models. If you hadde wanted a completely different look and feel to them you would’ve had to do more…

    You have a lot of opportunity in the paint job!

    I like them – they keep a lot of the character of the scuttlers without the spider elements. Personally I quite like the spider-goblins, they’re rather fun, but if they’re not to your taste this is a great alternative.

    Good work mate – they’ve come out significantly better than the stock minis imo!

  4. I like both the originals and your version. I can see why people don’t like the way they are designed but I like it.

    • Cheers! Apparently a lot of people do like the stock version which I didn’t realize – though I’m not one to judge. Taste differ vastly πŸ™‚

      • I like the models but their poses are really boring.

        The Scuttlers could of had some really nice Gollum-like poses on rocks as a suggestions.

        Yours are neat though, they don’t as deformed as the originals but they are getting there!

      • Agreed. I’m actually reserving the lower bodies for another project. As for my take on them I see the added benefit of being able to use them as hobgoblins for my CD, ungors for my PtG warband or in Mordheim as something appropriate.

      • That makes sense!

      • As I’m so swamped with family life and work I need to compromise on all levels of my hobby and as I play so little these days it’s a good way of utilizing my collection πŸ™‚

    They look far superiour to the miniatures in the box set.

    With all of the gorgeous sculpts in the box they really suffer. Your versions are brill.
