Just received from Pedro Navarro......









When the final model is assembled, the body will be lifted above the ground. These photos show the green with the seperate legs fitted loosely, and the body resting on the table surface.

Is there a standard size base for something that big?



I think you should just put it on the table as is and say, "Good luck everybody!"

It won't be supplied with a base, but you could easily make your own with an old CD.

CD it is. I think perhaps one of my old Cher CDs...! ;) I'm excited to hear that it's that big. Hard to tell how big the "footprint" is from photos...

That sucker's huge (pun intended :D ), Richard: wonderful work by Pedro! :D Are you planning on offering just 1 giant spider, or will there be another model or two? How flexible will the legs be to allow us to pose them?

A realistic spider ? :D Where on Earth do you live? No spiders with a leg span of 20+ ft in my part of the world.

But yes, it has much resemblance with a real life tarantula but some parts are very exaggerated - like lower part of the feet (the spicky 'toes') and the pedipalps(?) - so also quite a fantasy creature.

@OW
The legs are separated pieces, right? How flexible do to think they will be? The look 'thick' - so do you think I could bend them easily - to change their moulded position?

Another pic request Richard: could you please post an overhead shot with an orc or other mini there too, just to see their relative sizes, but not via the perspective image shot from the front like your last pic?

Thanks! :D

That looks great.
Grodog, if you are only wanting the orc for size ref, that mini is a standard empire gw mini from their giant. The base is the same size as the orcs base but the orc is taller (atleast the standard "orc" for the box).
If you just want to see one of those scumy pig faces get eaten... itll have to wait haha
