In assembling the model, I wanted to magnetize the arms and wings, partly so I could add options later, and partly for ease of transport; that wingspan, while visually appealing, would make it a bit of a nightmare to transport in one piece. I used two magnets in each wing, plus one in the socket, to try to get some added strength, but even so, the wings wouldn't hold, partly because they would spin. To prevent the rotation, I inserted a pin in the wing arm, just behind the ball socket which would be hidden by where the arm overlaps onto the torso. It was still a little tenuous, but it held.
From there, the next step was to model some twin linked devourers for his weapons. I really didn't like the idea of simply slapping some regular devourers on there, but I also wasn't a huge fan of the Tyrannofex Fleshborer Hive route, in part because they seem to add too much bulk to an already bulky model that was supposed to fly. Looking through my bits, one of my goals was to have matching arms on each side of the body, which presented a problem for most of the monstrous creature ranged weapons. In the end, I settled on the largest set of Mawloc claws as the best fit size-wise.
From there, I made the devourer itself a little bigger by simply putting two together to make a mirror top and bottom. For the arms, after slicing off the talons themselves with a dremel and looking at the angle, I decided to flip the hands upside down:
With my parts assembled as much as I wanted at this point, it was on to painting. Having more or less established my scheme and methods on the Tervigon, I was mostly on autopilot for the carapace, doing a bit of feathering and blending across about 4 shades of red.
I started with a liberal coat on Incubi Darkness in lines across the wing. As I added Jade Green, I made thinner lines on the edges of the thick lines of the darker shade.
