I would use a Shelob from the lord of the rings range and work up from there mate, that would be your best bet, cant wait too see him if you do him Sarpedon is by far one of my characters. JD

he had some legs cut off too after fighting vehmeth and the plague daemons I've seen people use soul grinder legs but it's tough.. he didn't get turned too much into a spider, just had some chitinous legs mutated on...

I think he would look way cooler that way than just modelling him with 8 arms, a guy on heresy has done a Sarpedon model from a Shelob and it looked cool as hell https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...8&d=1218594864

There are some robot models, not in the 40k range unfortunately, that have several legs coming out of a round body, more like a humanesque shape than a spider centaur thingy(althought very good conversion )

Maybe try pigiron, necromunda stuff and the odd inquisitor bit.... might find something..... Then if they seem to robotic just bulk them up with GS....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Held it in a vice and sawed below the belt line. You will need to do some green stuff work to smooth everything out. It wasn't hard to do while vice gripped.

If you need any help with it just ask i'm happy to help.
