Awesome work. It reminds me a little of the 'mega-dreadnought' Jack made out of a few dreadnoughts...

I like it. I take it a Prime bug is just a little bigger, tougher, and smarter than its bretheren. So I think the way you handled it is right on.

Sure thing.

The skin is bone, leviathan wash, bone, white/bone mix
Carapace is Black, Royal Purple, Magenta
Claws are black, gore red, blood red

Pretty standard Leviathan I think.

Nice work. I'm impressed that you were able to cast up something that looks so nice.

Nice! The belly looks amazing. Please add a step by step with the paints you used for that. It's exactly how I want mine to look.
