Default Deathleaper, Heavily Converted

Hey all! Had to take a break from Harold to throw together this gentleman: Franklin, the Deathleaper. He's here to stalk you like a creeper and suck your brains out through your nose. Damned paparazzi.

Watch yer brains, dude!

He comin' to snatch yo' people up!

He got away! Fortunately for him, he's only held down with magnets.

Lookit all dem eyes. All the better far creepin' with!

Great little diorama! I'm digging all of the sculpting work except the blobs in the hands. They look like, well blobs in the hands.

The head and body look lovely.

Wookiepelt: Thanks! I'm pretty happy with this one. I feel like the diversion from "standard" tyranid design elements was a pretty successful way to establish Frankie as a named character.

Kreuger: Thank you! The hands are also my least favorite part of the sculpt, because I made some textural decisions that I wouldn't make again. Next time, they'll be better. I do love building little dioramas.
