Default Less Static Vespids

Here is my first try at making some less static vespids.


98% of Teenagers have tried smoking pot OR drinking. If you're one of the 2% that hasn't, copy and paste this into your sig.

they still look static, they dont look much better. it would help if you repositioned some legs.

I'd bend them a bit over, because if they fly, the wings support the weight, that way, they should be a little more...horizontal.
Just a suggestion though... Otherwise they look nice.

Eh...I've seen this kinda thing before, it doesn't make them look much better. They still look static, they're just...standing in mid-air now. :P

Until they do resculpts, if you want cool-looking vespid models you're probably better off sculpting your own. If they're going to be flying they need to look more dynamic, like the codex picture.

They need some converting of the legs so they actually look like they're flying, instead of standing in mid-air. Some bending of the feet, perhaps.

If you're confident in your metal bending abilities, what I think you could do with some of the vespid models is position them at a sharper angle and bend/repose their legs to emphasize the motion. Perhaps have a small piece of terrain on the base that they could look like their taking off from

Whats different about them? All I see is some pins or somthing holding them up. Vespids are nasty models for looking so......... 3rd edition-eque, but its your first attempt so keep trying ^-^.
The dead won't bother you, its the living you gotta worry about.

+++I`m glad someone has done that, a model that can fly should not have all feet firmly on th ground.+++

Here are some that I've done. They really are a pain to get looking good; lots of patience with a pair of pliers and a hobby knife :P

"i like to think of playing against my list as being like punching jelly. you put all your effort in but it just moves out of the way and you cause no damage. then your arm is covered in jelly. and the chicks come out and start wrestling in the jelly, and i drink a beer with stone cold steve austin, and we watch the chicks jelly wrestling, and then the slap-bass funk starts wakka chakka wakka wakka woh" -- Spooky, describing Mech Tau

"You can of course make a list that attempts to work via fragility and easy VP donation and Pathfinders fit into that just fine." -- kai
