Trygon Prime, Modifications and all ready to go.

Trygon prime. Extreme highlighting on the mandibles. 

This is the almost finished product of the trygon shown here.


So far, I've only done the bits for the prime, but the basic Trygon and the Mawloc are coming. 

This is what I've done since then. 
So, I've basically done the right flank of the model now. On the left, you'll notice that the model's left flank is very closed in - almost like he's shielding his body from some attack.

On this side, the arms are positioned to make it seem like he is striking out at an opponent.


The closed in left flank.


He's still kickin'!

This is the main feature of the arms - a fully painted and fighting to the death space marine. The model forms a nice focal point, providing a grey that would not fit on the trygon himself. 

In addition, the spot colours of gold help to make the little man more noticeable, hopefully so that people will realise the immense size a trygon would have if standing bolt upright. 

Notice the smallest arm here - what could he be doing there? 
This part is probably the most subtle, but it is definantly my favourite. 

The trygon has this smallest arm facing into his body. While this seems like a small nothing to the normal player, for me and the user, it has the effect of representing the way that these trygons deal with my thunder-hammer terminators. 

All in all, I've enjoyed this project. It's a tad belated, and my friend has had to go without for a long while - something he hasn't been very happy about!

I'm not gonna be able to work on it for a few days, He's picking it up to use in a doubles tournament - I think - in which time I plan on starting some bikes.
