I have been working on-and-off on this monstrosity for a while and managed to finish it a couple of nights ago. Basically I needed some sort of flesh eating giant plant for a scenario we are going to play in a few weeks. I went looking for suitable plastic plants on the Internet but could not find exactly what I was looking for. That is a huge Venus flytrap-looking plant like the one from the remake of Roger Corman’s Little Shop of Horrors. Thus I finally decided to build the thing myself.
It’s a fairly simple job. For the plant heads I used some leaves from an old plastic plant I had already while the rest more or less was made from scratch. In the scenario the plant is created by a sorcerer of Tzeentch, I therefore decided to keep the colours of the plastic plant and to paint my flesh eating horror in tzeentchian colours. At the same time I had in mind that it also could serve as some sort of weird space plant or terrain piece for the chaos wastes in future games.
It took some time to finish but it was actually quite fun. The whole process was documented almost step-by-step and you can see the pictures here.
Oh, and by the way, plane tickets and the hotel is now booked for the BOYL event in August! Need I tell how excited I am?
