Weird World War One German Spider Soldier Conversions
« on: May 01, 2021, 01:36:34 PM »
Created these alternative Weird World War One German soldiers by adding some parts from the Wargames Atlantic Giants Spiders. Relatively easy conversions with these plastic Wargames Atlantic miniatures, just cut away some bits and add new ones such as bio laser rifles, spider legs as arms and so on. Some partially genetically modified soldiers controlled by their spider overlords!  ;D

If of interest check my review of the Giant Spiders below to see the parts included in the model kit

That's a great idea

Knowing my luck, I would throw the pin and still be holding the grenade - gulp!

Thanks, was just playing around with some parts as both boxes crossed on the workbench.

Quite happy with the result, bit weird but nothing too creepy.

The other miniatures will be normal soldiers to be historical and by adding these the whole bunch suddenly becomes "weird wars"

See! All these years I've been telling my therapist "Never trust a Womble"! And I'm right! I'm right!
