Here the start of entirely oddball super-heavy construction thread by yours truly. This is inspired by the story of the Orkilus from the ork submersible datasheet and the Fenrisian Kraken from the Tyranid ‘dex. Basically, I’m making a Tyranid giant squid. I’m probably going to use scupltey for the model.

Here’s the basic armature of the tentacle’s with two marines for scale.

As of right now, the Kraken stands at 9 inches tall at the tentacles, but once I flesh it out, it will probably be around 12-14 inches tall.

As for rules, I’m not that sure, although I have a general idea of what I want to do with it. So and feedback, ideas, or flames will be appreciated

Well, I flesh out the tentacles and did a beak for the monstrosity. I actually underestimated how large this would would end up being. The tentacles themselves would be smoothed out later, and I'm planning to add the suckers after the clay hardens. But here are the pictures!

I'm hoping to be able to be finished with the head segment by the end of the weekend, ans starting on the mantle.

Are we gonna see some tyrannid scales by any chance, or maybe sything talons on the side with somesort of webbing to make the creature look like it can go fast under water, would kinda reinforce a tyrannid look.

marine 1: i never really got post 41st millenium modern art.
marine 2: i think its meant to represent mankinds desperate wanting to expand and explore across the galaxy. you see the center represents earth while the tenticles represent mankind stretching out, beyond earth into the stars.
marine 1: oh.... i just thought it was a giant squid.

sorry couldn't resist.
its looking good. a very original idea this can't wait to see more.
