Assembled Giant Crab Miniature Photos - for Nautican Warhammer Army

Reapermini Giant Crab that I'm using for my Nautican Fantasy Army

Some pics (see below slideshow) to give a sense of perspective that you don't get from the website.

This is a 28mm scale miniature

Height 2.7cm
Width 5cm
Length 6cm
Base Size 50mm x 50mm

I found the miniature quite difficult to assemble (although I haven't had much practice recently !) The shell comes in 2 parts and was easy to stick together, as were the pincers. The legs were more difficult, there are 6 main legs and 2 legs at the back which are slightly thicker but shorter.

There are small indentations in the sides of the crab shell so you know where to position the limbs. I assembled the miniature upside down with the crab shell resting on my worktop. The legs would not stay in place with super glue so I used epoxy resign instead which dried rock hard overnight and appears to have done the job nicely.

After the glue had dried I was pleasantly surprised to find that all 6 main legs actually touched the ground. The 2 legs at the back do not quite touch the ground unless you lean the crab backwards slightly which creates quite a nice pose of the crab launching an attack.

Other Notes
This crab is an undead crab called "Scuttlebones" so it comes with 2 holes in it's shell (with a corpse inside !). I will be filling the holes with putty to create a complete shell.

  1. Will you post pictures of the Second Crab?

  2. I would but I haven't stuck him together yet. I've been taking a bit of a break from the Nauticans recently. I'll be getting back to them next week when the 8th edition rules come out.

    i have lots of play testing to do !

    I can't wait :)

  3. Me neither, but I'm on Summer vacation so time flies fast for me ;D
    I'm planning on going to Greece - Athens this sumemr to get some Lizardmen, fortunetly I have enough money. I like modeling but painting is kind of a drag for me :/
    Hopefuly I'll get better at it for I want my Liz's to look realy nice :D

  4. I hope you get what you want from Athens. I'm in the same boat, I like sticking the models together but I'm not so good at painting :(

  5. Boat? You mean Turtle Transporter? XD

  6. In one of your posts (can't remember) you said that a friend of yours is painting the minis for you. If only I had a friend like that XD
