Behold the Megapod! Giant war-beast from the Monsterpocalypse game, repainted for my octopod forces from 15mm.co.uk.
Before painting the transparent yellow plastic model, I carved out the submarine in his tentacle then undercoated with Army Painter spray. I painted this model more like a traditional miniature so was an interesting break from 15mm.. I started getting quite obsessive about refining wet-blending on all the large smooth surfaces. But in the end it was just taking too long so I stopped it here as I wasn't really enjoying it. I didn't have a base big enough for this guy, but have ordered some 50mm round ones to do the job. When based he will look even bigger.
I think the quality level is ok for the moment.. Maybe when I do the base I'll throw on a couple more highlights.
