My local gw is hosting a superheavy/gargantuan creature conversion competition, whereupon entrants convert a superheavy unit and create custom rules for it. So I decided to enter for a bit of fun. The finish date is still several months away, but all considered I've already made some pretty good progress.

Thus far the kit consists of only triarch stalkers, three of them to be exact.

Early shots here, at this stage there were only two stalkers involved.





So basically all I did was join two of the stalker bodies together to allow for eight leg slots. Six of these would naturally be legs, and to add to its size they would be the large forelegs on the front of the stalker model (hence my primary reason for needing three of them).

The overarching spine of the machine I eventually snipped off, deeming it too small and incorrectly positioned to function as its tail.

My current progress is here:





As you can see, I've used assorted parts left over from all three kits to flesh out the body and extend the tail. There are still some gaps to fill, and weapons still need to be fitted once I decide on a definite loadout. I would also love to make the claws bigger if I can work that out. They look too puny at the moment for a creature that size. :laugh:

I will update this thread as my progress continues, and once I have written the rules for it I will create a custom ruleset to be posted in 40k Homebrew rules section. :good:

That's some epic shit right there, Serp. Looks amazing. I always judge conversions by whether I think it'd sell if it was brought out as a kit, and I think this would sell by the boat load.

Not sure what else you could do with it, but I will watch with interest.

Well bigger claws is definitely needed, and I think at least one ranged weapon. Thanks for taking an interest and feedback, I'll try not to disappoint. :)

I'm with Khorne's Fist on this one - That thing looks amazing!

If nothing else, you can always be inspired by the Brass Scorpion rules for the ruleset.
Thank you. For the rules I'm tossing between dangerous but fragile, or soft but resilient.

Construction complete. Still needs some green stuff but almost good to go.

Rules are still pending.

Any chance of a scale shot with an infantry mini? It'd be nice to see how it looks alongside other units.

Good idea, once I've done the greenstuff work, I'll get a shot of it beside a space marine and maybe a triarch stalker or something. :good:

Love it, reminds me of the old Talos since that had a Scorpion feel to it. I'd also love to see an infantry comparison shot.

Have you decided on rules for it yet?

I so want one!
Do you have a parts list? Or will you just sell me one!
All of the parts used for this came out of three triarch stalker kits.

Sell you one? I guess if you were willing to cover the cost of materials, time, and probably international shipping (I'm in Australia) then I would say a definite maybe.

Three kits eh, lets see that's 180 cdn$ + shipping and time. Comes out to about 6000 Australian dollars! Wow your crazy... lol gives me an idea.

Im in love! its beautiful. I would probably try and find a way to not have to use 3 kits to make a single model but I do really like it!
You could get by with two if you used the smaller legs, but I wanted the big ones. :grin:
