At the same time I painted Mr Worm, I also painted up an Ice Spider. In this case I decided to see if I could make a cheap-ass Christmas cracker toy look good enough for the table which I think I managed to achieve.
He's a nasty looking beast, especially given the "designer" elected to given him TEN legs. Go figure, but it does mean extra work chopping legs off for intrepid adventurers in the frozen city, thus making him 25% harder to kill.
And so I present "Ice Ice Spider", an ear worm if ever there was one to go with Mr Worm above...
And obviously this chap can't go without a Challenge tune to accompany them...
10 points of fun. Now back to some serious painting...
My good friend Doug has always been brilliant at twisting the lyrics of ridiculous pop songs into perverse (and often obscene) renditions. I remember him dancing around my uni apartment after seeing Vanilla Ice's video, singing, 'Lice, lice, scabies...doot, doot, doot, dee-da-doot-doot!'
Haha, I think its brilliant that both you and Ev painted that same worm almost the identical shade of purple. The only thing that would make it picture perfect for the set is if this one had a tissue proffered in it's maw.
While the worm is great, I have to say that I really like how you did the blue and black of this 10-legged spider - especially the light grey dots on its back. Very eye catching (and makes my hand instinctively twitch for a can of RAID or something heavy to splat it with).
Nice bugs Mr. Mills - 10 points for you!
