Thanks tinfoil. Really glad you're enjoying our shenanigans.
Now before this caterpillar chows down on another tasty gaming morsel I'll slip in some proper sculpting progress on the spooks.



Here we have a pirate spook (Avast Ye!) and a water spook.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
On Thursday he ate through four grimy grots.



But he was still hungry.

He looks an almighty king spook! Glad to see the caterpillar is still munching away

Thanks gobert.
And because home lockdown affords me plenty of time to hobby...

All four spooks sculpted, and primed ready to paint. Spot the Secret service spook (as requested Flinty, great idea!)

theCrowe,

Why do the pirate spooks remind me of Pac Man?

Yeah they look a lot like Pac Man ghosts. Basic ghostie shape with big eyes.

This is going to be a fantastically powerful butterfly with all these foes the caterpillar is munching through! There’s definitely a PacMan vibe on the ghosts, looking really cool

On Saturday he ate through...



One Gnasher Squig, one Skeleton, one Beastman, one Night Goblin Fanatic, one Zombie, one Mutant Cultist, one Genestealer, one Chaos Space Marine Sorcerer, one Stone Troll and one Giant.

That night he had a stomachache!

The next day was Sunday again. The Caterpillar ate through one nice green Forest Dragon,



and after that he felt much better.

I love those ghosts! The one in the sunglasses is my favorite out of the bunch but it's hard to choose.

Now he wasn't hungry any more - and he wasn't a little caterpillar any more.



He was a big, fat caterpillar.

He built a small house, called a cocoon, around himself.



He stayed inside for more than two weeks.
(That should give me plenty of time to finish this thing.)

love the idea of a drop pod for a cocoon. I look forward to him emerging in two weeks time. Awesome storytelling, were your creative directors involved?

This is absolutely brilliant, it's put a massive grin on my face. A shame I can only subscribe once! Loved the adventures of the caterpillar, the drop pod cocoon had me in bits Keep it up, everything about this thread is superb.

Side note - how are you doing the books? Is it some sort of DTP software, or just a clever way of using Word?

A little bit. He did come up with the scale shift plan for the big fat caterpillar (though he wanted some battle mechs involved like some kind of caterpillar b-movie.) I thought the tiny 6mm soldiers would convey the idea better.

Thanks. Very kind praise. To make the books I scan the original drawings into the computer and the boys tell me theit story and we type it up and arrange it all on Microsoft Publisher. It's a bit of a faff but I'm pretty well versed in how to arrange them by now. Then they print off a bunch of copies and sell them to their classmates in school!

Oh, that is so cool! Very creative boys you have there. I might try and do that with my own lad (just turned 5), he digs reading and stories, the idea that he could tell his own would really interest him. Thanks

Then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon, pushed his way out and...

Big reveal first thing in the morning folks. (It's all ready to show, I just want some sunlight for a good photo) I can hardly wait.

SO EXCITED! I’d built myself up to expect a 2 week wait and then you throw a spoiler like that! It’s a bit dull in Bristol, do hopefully it’s nicer in Norn Iron... though my experience would tell me that is a naive hope!

He was a beautiful butterfly!



And not just that. Hedgee's heroes can all ride on top for some excellent flying transport action!



I took some WIP photos along the way so we can all do a peak inside the cocoon when I get it drawn up.
Thanks for reading along with the caterpillar and all the encouragement that helped get such a huge piece onto the tabletop. Very exciting!
