Hi

I used the lower torse of a carnifex while converting a flyrant a few months back.  After unsuccessfully trying to obtain a new lower torso without having to buy a whole new fex I decided to try out an idea I had.  The scorpion is in my opinion one of the most cool and menacing bugs out there, so I thought it fitting to make a beefed up carnifex/scorpion conversion.  Here are some pics of the sculpt in progress and of the finished monster

I really like the outcome, looks kinda exactly like I wanted it to do!  The legs are large warrior scything talons gut at the claw and then refitted upside down to get the bug leg angle right.  The crushing claws needed serious up-beefing which I think worked pretty well.  All in all, I'm happy with it.

c&c welcome!
