This is my first conversion project. Wanted to set Spidicules is the Abyssal Woods. Still needs a bit of paint but pretty happy with the form. Wanted something that was stable and movable that still allowed survivors to get in the blind spot.

Made the tree out of a plastic lid, tinfoil, tape, wall plaster, and resin.

I like the way you've provided space for survivors underneath. Well done! Did you use the hot sand technique to pose your spidicules?

How did you bend the legs? Just hot water and some patience?

My goal from the start was to have a way for the survivors to fit nicely underneath. Thanks for noticing.

I used boiling water with a little salt in it for bending. It took some time, several snapped along the way, but those just got pins and glue. I intentionally cut the front hands at the forearm so I could twist them. Tricky part was getting the legs to line up with the branches. Had to do the bending before assembly so there was some guess work and luck involved.

Base of the tree is a plastic cylinder that some super glue came it. It was pretty thick plastic, so I cut it and melted it into shape. Them added tinfoil and tape to make the branches. I covered the whole thing in wall plaster and Modeling paste. Then added some wire for small branches and roots. Finally covered a lot of it in milliput for texture and sculpting.
