DM8b - Purple Worm v2

An upgraded version of the OW DM8 Purple Worm sculpted by Richard Scott and Paul Muller, I believe. Making it a more dynamic and scaring monster.

It is cast in resin as a 4-part model, but supplied with a pewter-cast tail stinger piece.

It is 125mm tall in its rearing pose, and a huge 500mm long.

DM18 - Rust Monsters

Rust monsters are creatures of bizarre appearance, with a fondness for snacking on metallic objects of all kinds. Although not a deadly foe, it is widely feared by knights and paladins for its habit of destroying their precious magical weapons and armour.

Unfortunately assembled and painted before I began documenting John's works.

The Rust Monsters were cast in four separate pieces (body, tail and the two antennae).

These were the first miniatures for the Labyrinth Lord game, a pair of Carcass Scavengers. They are hideous giant grubs, armed with a fearsome mouth and 8 tentacles. They each have 16 legs and measures around 50mm in length. They are multi-part model, supplied with 2 shared sprues of 4 pair of legs (numbered), and a shared sprue of tentacles and separate body pieces.
