Spiral Arm Studios’ Maelstrom’s Edge has revealed another of their massive models for the Sci-Fi Kickstarter running right now with just a week or so left on the campaign. See what you think of the monstrous Karist Angel…
No Guardian Angel…
This monstrous beast certainly isn’t going to be welcoming you to the gates of Heaven. In fact I’m fairly sure it will have sent more men to its death to make work for the proper angels!
Some fluff on the beast…
“The fully mature Angel adult is a truly terrifying creature to encounter in the flesh. Dwarfing even the tallest of humans, the Angel is a tapering mass of writhing tentacles, gelatinous membranes, and bristled claws, smelling of something akin to sulphur pits, and when encountered on the battlefield, usually ravenous with hunger and withdrawal.
The last sight many adversaries experience is the Angel’s trembling, pain-wracked appendages closing around them as their terrifying 6 eyed and gaping mawed visage draws ever closer.”
Despite its horrifying appearance it is quite the fascinating model and I like that it spends most of its time in space so on the ground it looks very strange indeed adding to its horror factor.
It also has the abilities to switch ‘forms’ allowing it to fly around the battlefield, turn into a natural-blade wielding monster or become a tank of a creature increasing its resilience.
As a model it stands around 60mm tall with an extra 10mm or so added on if you include the writhing tentacles on its back. They’ve also added a variety of different claw options on the sprue so you can mix up what they look like if you take multiples on the battlefield.
What do you think of this beast?
