I've been wanting to make some Mycetic Spores for a while and have been thinking of some idea's. I was thinking, instead of having something that drops from orbit, have something that tunnels up from underground. This seems to fit in well with the Tyranid army as Trygons, Mawlocs and Raveners all tunnel. Anyway, this got me thinking of one of my favourite monster films "Tremors".

Although this guy would have to be big enough for a Carnifex to come screaming out of. The Lash Whip and Ripper Tentacles would be represented by the big slimy tongues. I'll probably model spikes on it's top carapace (like the carnifex frag spines) to represent Cluster spines or Stinger Salvo's.

This is my work in progress so far. I'm using modelling clay as green stuff would be to expensive for a model this large. I'll probably use green stuff for the tongues though.

The problem with clay although it is air drying it takes about five days to fully dry. It says on the packet, "Non-cracking", on about day two or three of drying big cracks appear, which have to be filled in each time until they stop appearing.

What should I call it Tremorgon, Tremorloc, Tremorfex, Tremorthrope, Derek?

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you for reading.

I dunno what a mycetic spore is, But i think it'd look cooler if the top wasn't so rounded! It looks awesome with the inside detail, but the top makes it look like an egg.

What d'ya think! :biggrin:

Tremorgor sounds cool. Out of the 5 i'd pick Tremorgon. :tongue:

I agree, add some carapace to the head and he'll look perfect! Good luck, and +rep for the amazing idea!

Derek,
Graboid,
na Tremorthrope sounds cool to me.

Is it clay or Das?
Its probably drying too quick believe it or not, outside dry n shrinking over a wetter middle at a guess.
Milliput is a good material for larger projects like this and does not crack.

Great stuff though and once the carapace plates are on it will look awesome.

Thanks for the comments. I'll be working on the head plates next now that inside the mouth is dry. I might pick up some milliput to try out for the next one.

Have some rep for a really cool idea. It's gonna look a million bucks once it's finished and has the carapace on its back.
