Bloody Goodwin, that looks very good indeed!
No really, it's great. I'm going to try that too, always felt reluctant to destroy some good styro, so just had to wait until someone else did. :P
What kind of spraypaint did you use? Ingredients (could be a factor)? Distance to the styro?

That and some colour :

First I thought it was going to be the lair of Shelob (lotr), but yeah, it's pretty good for tyranids. Don't quite understand what the rest will become, some kind of bunker perhaps? Or more like that base in Starship troopers, where they're lured into a trap.

Oh and just noticed the black on the back of the styro, was that an earlier experiment? Why didn't that paint cause some ... gooyness?

Yeah the darker patch was from a different gray primer, i use just a clear interior-exterior spray paint now. I guess it might just be a starting position or something but there is one spot where troops can see over the wall. As for the stringy goo stuff, this is what i did:

1. Sprayed on truckloads of spray paint (figuratively) to make hole in styro entirely from melting.

2.it gets kind of gooey and sticky from so much spray paint that you can grab a stick and just drag the stuff and and attach it to something.

3. Give it some time to dry and presto! You have web like things, it does become hard, but not in the sense that is stable(its just not gooey anymore)

Hope that helps!

This is going to be extremely hard for me to do. I hope you can complete it! It looks alright already ... maybe needs a base .. maybe not. Hope to see some updatess

Looks good. I really think you should consider basing it to stablize the piece and to add detail bits on the ground to give it more character. You can also use super glue to make thin marks that will melt slightly to represent smaller acid venom burns.
