Giant Scorpions

Here's a pair of scorpions I painted this morning before going to work. These are dime store insect toys. They'll be used for a HotT army I'm building. Of note are the bases. I lathered on a water-based acrylic texture from Acrylicos Vallejo formulated with permanent pigments, microparticles and acrylic resin. Here's the product line.

 I still have to shade the bases as well as flock them. Nice product, I might get the sand version too.


  1. Wow!? I think I have the exact same cheap plastic scorpion that I was, likewise, just basing and priming to repaint for a HOTT base!?

    What were you going to classify them as in HOTT? I was thinking "beasts" - fairly fast moving... not bothered by bad going...? I didn't think they had the heft to classify as a Behemoth.

  2. Now that's just gross! :-) Good find, they'll be great in a game.

A bit of nostalgia here. I'm gearing up for a weekend of working on my wargame table and was surfing for inspiration. Happily, I rediscovered Major General Tremorden Rederring's Colonial-era Wargames at the Wayback Machine. This wargaming group's been a source of inspiration ever since I discovered the wonderful world of miniature wargaming. Just look at that picture above and tell me you're not impressed. WOW! was all I could think off when I saw it.

The page has since given its last huzzah and I don't know what's become of the group, but I'm sure I'll be rereading the material they still have archived. A veritable treasure chest of miniature gaming gems, the page embodied the FUN side of miniature gaming, neither taking itself too seriously nor scrimping on the joys of the hobby and its subsidiary hobbies/crafts. It's a pity if such a wonderful resource and such a huge contribution to the hobby is lost. I discovered the page waaaay back then when…
