Default Barry The Shas'la

Ok what is a Barry... well a Barry in simple terms is a model you use to determine the size of other models. Effectively its a model used for scale purposes.

Over on SWC we're having a build a Barry contest (as well as a guess the points contest). And this is my entrys WIP shot.



And here are some painted pics (the floating holoscreen says 'Barry' in Tau)



And here he is doing his job.



Hope you liked my crazy little project. Some of the others on SWC are even better (Drunken Space Wolf... Barbed Strangler Exploding Guardsmen... Death Korp flipping someone the bird...)

Oooh, nice model, and nice idea with the measuring tape. Is that scale accurate?

Huh, we did the exact same thing when we worked maintenance at a summer camp last summer. The highest we got was 170".

Pretty cool model, I really like it.

Yeah, you even painted the marks on his tape? I don't think I've seen a model painted so nicely that wasn't going to be used for gaming or even a showcase, lol...nice job.

Any chance of gathering up some pics of the others you metioned?

I like this idea. But yes, is that scale on the tape accurate?

Thats brilliant... took me a few minutes to figure out the tape, then I noticed the markings and how its even got the gw thing on it!

Utterly hillarious, I love it. Brilliantly painted as well, I like the Holo screen.

I too would like links to more of these...
