So guys, me and Red Comet Tyrant are having a race to see who can build a Red Terror faster(and cooler :P).

Anyone is welcome to join in by building or painting there own Red Terror.

This isn't an official contest, and there isn't really a date of completion set, so Red, what do you think?

Doesn't really matter.

I'm building one ut of a Trygon, and I believe Red is as well. But you're welcome to build/paint a 3rd edition Red Terror.

I'm essentially using this as motivation to continue and eventually finish this project that I've started. These Trygon/Mawloc parts have been sitting on my desk for far too long.

you just agve me an ideal of something to do rather than build a giant catahan devil. Now after the FAQ came out and I can deep strike into enemy units with Mawloc I was going to get one anyway. Now thanks to you I'll ust get it and paint it up to be a Red Terror; should be fun thanks (b~_^)b

Though I don't have pictures yet, one thing I'm working on doing is modding the upper jaw of the Mawloc head to be wider like the Red Terror's head. It's great that the Mawloc can open up its bottom jaw so it can gobble up targets whole, but it seems limited by the regular upper jaw.

Heavier armor plates on the head is another thing I'm gonna work on. It's bursting out of the ground right on enemy targets with reckless abandon. Needs thicker skull.

So, yeah, work's been insanely busy for the past few months among other things. However, I'm back from the void and I'm not out of this yet.

Updates, but no pictures uploaded:

Head:
Upper jaw is too small. I took a spare Mawloc lower jaw and cut it up to use as an upper jaw. Haven't figured out how I'm gonna shape the head carapace yet. Also, the jaws fit one major requirement: "Must be able to swallow Space Marine whole, even with armour."

Randomly, my girlfriend demands me to give it round, shiny, eyes because she thinks it'll look cute.

Torso:
Made it skinnier. Width of torso is now slightly wider than the width of the hips. Had to do a bit of cutting to make all the back carapace bits fit together. Once all the cemented plastic solidifies, I'll gonna do some GS work to have the rounded corners of the carapace come to sharper angles. Unlike Hive Node, I've kept the 6 miasma vents. When I add a line of fins down the middle, like those on the Red Terror's back, those will be vents as well.

Tail:
I did the insane. I have cut the tail into two-carapace segments. Haven't figured out in what position yet, but it shall be re-posed.

Claws:
Haven't done anything yet, but there's one thing I know for sure: THEY HAVE TO BE LONGER.

I highly recommend ignoring your girlfriend's advice. I also highly recommend not telling her that. Cool that a marine fits in now though.

Indeed. I like the sound of where this model is headed, and am keen to see the final beastie. :wink:
